When your breakfast is served by a friendly robot, it’s time to accept that we are The Jetsons and this is the future.
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.
So Abell turned to Facebook to help her solve the mystery. Using the hashtag #FindTheGirlsOnTheNegatives, tens of thousands of people have shared the images and are busy searching for the mystery women…
And, so far, there have been a few developments.
Four months ago, Australian comedian Adam Hills decided to share his diaper changing experience with the Twitterverse, coining the term #smelfie.
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.
The fact that senior citizens grew up in a time when a rotary phone was a luxury, you have to cut them a little bit of slack when it comes to those new-fangled cell phones available now.
Some choose to remain locked to the landline, but others choose to learn that whole “text messaging” thing on their own.
Check and checkmate.
One moment of distraction behind the wheel can change a life. AT&T gets it with this PSA.
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).
Have you ever heard the saying, “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade?”
Sure, that’s fine, but sometimes instead of lemons, life gives you a freight train coming straight towards you at full speed…
Then you just NOPE!
At that point, the only thing to do is just give up and walk away.
First dates can be really nerve-wracking, and it’s probably safe to assume that your date won’t be the smooth, suave, and charming person they usually are in their everyday life.
But that’s no excuse for having a complete nightmare first date like the one Toronto writer Anne Thériault recently witnessed and live-tweeted.
