A woman walking through a park discovers that the area is overrun with, as she described it, “millions” of what at first seem like the most adorable assailants ever. But maybe they’re not assailants at all.
Maybe they’re a crowd of faithful believers following the one true way…
Early this morning, while safe at home, staff of the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green Kentucky got a call from their security firm that motion detectors were going off in their “SkyDome,” the large, open facility they use for displaying many of their classic cars.
Arriving at the SkyDome to see what the problem was, they discovered that a sinkhole 40 feet wide and 40 feet deep had opened up in the middle of the floor. Eight cars had fallen in.
Remember M.C. Escher and his surreal drawings? Well if he had had access to Photoshop, his work may well have looked like that of Erik Johansson, a Swedish photographer and graphic artist who loves to take real scenes and turn them into something absurdly but intriguingly imaginary…
There are a lot of ways to motivate charitable giving. Usually, making potential donors mad isn’t one of them. The simple site “Selfies with Homeless People” doesn’t care about that, though.
They collect and share images from folks around the web who have posted pics of themselves with homeless people as if being homeless is something to laugh at. Needless to say, it’s disturbing and offensive…
The Olympics are a wonderful time for the entire world to come together and celebrate the spirit of competition. Unfortunately, the athletes and journalists who are arriving in Sochi’s Olympic Village are being greeted by less than perfect conditions.
On the bright side, they’re Tweeting about it, so we get to enjoy the spectacle. From bees in their food to bizarre bathroom arrangements, the photos are rather shocking…
Ski ballet was an actual sport that existed from the late 1960s until as recently as 2000, when the International Ski Federation ended formal competition of the sport.
Ski ballet was actually featured as a demonstration sport in the 1988 and 1992 Olympic Games, but it never succeeded at gaining recognition as an Olympic event. After watching this video of a 1985 ski ballet competition in Breckenridge – complete with double twists, bumbling commentary, and air drumming with ski poles – it’s not hard to understand why…
Several months ago, Keir Moffatt entered a Facebook competition. The contest simply required fans to leave a comment offering tips for working from home, and his tip won the prize, a $150 Apple gift card, with 52 likes.
Moffatt’s tip was pretty simple:
Get up earlier to take advantage of the period of time in the morning when most other people are still commuting to work.
It’s a wonderfully tranquil time of the day for processing emails, planning your day, and reading up on your industry – all without the inevitable disruption and interruption that comes with 9am.
Equally, if you have kids, use your earlier start to finish earlier too and have more time with your family in the evening :)
To say thanks for his victory, he took requests for animal impressions and put together a video of himself doing an animal impression for each like, which undoubtedly cost him more time and money than he made with the $150 gift card he’d won.
