Some bros are born lax, some achieve laxness, and others have laxness thrust upon them.

In Dallas, somber and thoughtful ceremonies were set for Friday afternoon to mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, who was gunned down on Nov. 22, 1963, as his open-air motorcade traveled through the city.
Bells were expected to toll throughout Dealey Plaza, where sniper Lee Harvey Oswald fired upon Kennedy, who was traveling with his wife, Jacqueline, and Texas Gov. John Connally and his wife, Nellie. The death of Kennedy, the nation's youngest president, plunged the word into mourning, and even today he continues to remain a figure of hope and unity.
Historian David McCullough was scheduled to read passages from Kennedy's speeches, including his much-repeated call to service made during his 1961 inaugural address: "Ask not what your country will do for you. Ask what you can do for your country."

The years came and went, but Dale Irby's 1970s polyester shirt and coffee-colored sweater vest never got old.

It started off purely by accident.

More than a deal or two has been made in here.
Businessman Mark Cuban – worth an estimated $2.5 billion – prefers his home office with a basic desk and work chair to a huge conference room with lavish furnishings.
"That's not really my style," Cuban tells PEOPLE. "I want to be comfortable."
Comfort is a multi-tasker's must-have, says Cuban, 54. Along with appearing on ABC's Shark Tank and investing in those start-ups, running his AXS.tv network, directing NBA'S Dallas Mavericks as owner and juggling other investment opportunities, Cuban is also an involved dad to kids Alexis, 9, Alyssa, 6, and Jake, 3 with wife Tiffany, 40.
