Stuff I found while looking around
– Aaron Ansarov’s portraits of zooids, a colonial animal that can only survive when connected with other zooids of a different nature, more commonly known as the Portuguese Man o’ War.
– The blocking of gun control legislation in the Senate exposes just how deeply corrupted America’s bought democracy has become:
Measured against profit and political security, dead children mean nothing. Common sense is easily dispatched. Truth itself is expendable in any circumstance. Only cash still has meaning to those who claim to represent us.
– Photos of the manhunt in Boston
– No, guys, I ordered it that way.
– Is this the world’s best jump roper? The smile on her face confirms it.
– I’m sure you’ve seen this already this week, but just in case you haven’t: ONE OF THOSE WEEKS.
– Politicians Making Awkward Rap References
– Don’t understand how to perform certain core-strengthening exercises? Need someone to show you how it’s done? You’re in luck today! Be sure to pay close attention to the “scissor kicks.”
– The People Who Watch Marathons:
The spectators — people who show up and cheer with noisemakers and high fives and encouraging cheers and magic-markered tagboard signs that read “YOU ALL ARE CRAZY! KEEP RUNNING!”— are the people who matter most to runners. Without those people, a marathon would just be an exercise in self-abuse from a large group of crazies. But there is meaning in marathoning: the people who watch.
– Reasons My Talk Show Host Is Crying
– Infographic: what people do at libraries
– Bid on a one-of-a-kind handwritten tweet book to benefit Matt & Danielle. Contributors include Ken Jennings, Damien Fahey, and Patton Oswalt.
– Seriously. Cats and boxes WTF?
– 83 years of book design: covers of The Great Gatsby
– Corners of the world where women have yet to tread. I am particularly enjoying this one.
– 21 Tips to Keep Your Shit Together When You’re Depressed:
“Cry. Better out than in. Sometimes it’s not convenient or career-enhancing to cry, so find a private place as best you can and let the tears go. Carry Kleenex and face wipes and extra concealer if you wear makeup. You can always claim allergies.”
