A few weeks ago, photographer Meagan Abell was thrift store shopping in Richmond, Virginia, when she came across a box of film negatives. Curious about the images, she bought the negatives, took them home, and scanned them…
And was absolutely stunned by the photographs’ beautiful, moody atmosphere.
The devastatingly gorgeous results show two young women, bathed in the rosy, golden light of the setting sun, standing on a beach, and walking into the ocean.
Unfortunately, the owner of the thrift store has no idea where the photos came from though, judging by the style of dress, Abell’s best guess is that they were take in the 1940s or 1950s. She thinks the film is most likely 60mm, and may be Kodachrome.
But beyond that, the incredible photographs and their subjects are a total mystery.
The insanely popular blog Humans Of New York is filled with the beautiful and insightful thoughts of New Yorkers, yet it seemed to be missing something…
Comedian Jim Tews noticed this omission and set out to solve this with his Felines Of New York (FONY) blog, where he collects photos of New York’s cats and writes introspective and meaningful captions for them, based on the premise of HONY.
We’ve all been there: Your best friend calls you up, all excited — and you know it’s a big deal, because who actually talks on the phone anymore? They tell you that they’ve met someone really special, and they want you to meet them.
The next thing you know, they’re always together, even when you’re supposed to be hanging out one-on-one for some bestie time.
So what can you do? Well, one guy seems to have decided that he’s better off embracing his role as a third wheel…
Meet Peter Alden, a 29-year-old single guy who lives in New York City (that’s him in the ocean).
For those of you who are unfamiliar with “Siri,” it’s basically a virtual personal assistant that resides on an iPhone. Siri responds to the words you speak rather than requests you type, so just as you can talk to your iPhone to perform a range of tasks (employing speech-to-text translation), you can also hear Siri’s human-like voice talk back at you (text-to-speech technology).
And while things are getting more advanced, it also appears that they might be getting a little bit more sarcastic.
People recently went crazy when they found out asking Siri, “What is 0 ÷ 0?” resulted in, “Imagine that you have zero cookies and you split them evenly among zero friends. How many cookies does each person get? See? It doesn’t make sense. And Cookie Monster is sad that there are no cookies. And you are sad that you have no friends.”
With that said, here are more of Siri’s best replies.
