FUCKING MONDAYS, AM I RIGHT?
DON’T EVEN GET ME STARTED. THERE ISN’T ENOUGH COFFEE IN THE WORLD TO HELP ME RIGHT NOW. I WAS UP UNTIL 4AM LOOKING AT INTERIOR DESIGN BLOGS. I HAVE NO IDEA WHY. I’M NOT EVEN ALLOWED TO PAINT MY APARTMENT.
THE INTERNET IS THE WORST FOR THAT KIND OF THING. ONE TIME I WENT ON WIKIPEDIA TRYING TO FIGURE OUT THE DRUMMER FROM DEF LEPPARD’S NAME AND I ACCIDENTALLY GOT A DEGREE IN NEUROBIOLOGY.
TELL ME ABOUT IT. I WAS TRYING TO DOWNLOAD SEABISCUIT AND NOW I’M AN ORDAINED MINISTER.
IT WAS REALLY WEIRD. ONE DAY I WENT TO THE PIZZA PLACE NEXT TO THE BAR DURING THE DAY, SOBER, AND I REALIZED THAT IT’S ACTUALLY SOME OF THE WORST PIZZA ON EARTH. THEN I WATCHED MY FAVORITE TV SHOW WHEN I WASN’T HIGH AND IT WASN’T FUNNY AT ALL. AFTER THAT I TOOK TWO WEEKS OFF ALL SUBSTANCES AND REALIZED I DIDN’T ACTUALLY LIKE ANY OF MY FRIENDS, MY MUSIC, OR MY HOBBIES.
TURNS OUT I’M NOT BISEXUAL, I REALLY LIKE COOKING, AND BOOKS ARE KIND OF AWESOME.
I HAD NO IDEA.
Adorable Animals Being Adorable of the Day: Residents of the new meerkat enclosure at Longleat Safari Park in Wiltshire, England, have apparently developed something of a foot fetish.
According to the video’s description, the meerkats, both young and old, “love playing around people’s feet, larking about, making mischief and would probably sneak into visitors handbags if they were allowed.”
If Bob really wants to help the villagers, how about putting his money towards a sustainable solution like this one? No elephants would have to die, and it would work even if there were no big white men with guns around.”
Visualizing The Honey Bee Extinction via dhgisme
User interface and data visualization design firm FFunction created this infographic to visualize the severe decline of the honey bee population (Colongy Collapse Disorder) over the last 5 years, how it affects us, and why it matters.
Why should we care? According to the infographic, bee-pollinated crops account for 1/3 of our diet and represent $15-$20 billion of crops annually.
Often overlooked is the impact that Colony Collapse Disorder has on the bee keepers. This is the one thing that I wish had been included in this visualization.
If you are interested in reading more about the economics of bee keeping check out Josh Levin’s excellent post on GoodEater Collaborative:
