The U.S. Supreme Court is pretty cool. It has it’s own cafeteria, a 450,000-book library and a basketball court on the fifth floor (which staffers call “the highest court in the land”).

One interesting detail: The building’s frieze depicts the history of law, including the Ten Commandments. Unfortunately, only the last five commandments are visible, and Moses’ beard obscures some of the Hebrew, so the visible text reads:

Commit Adultery

Oh well.
