Everyday Objects With Faces Are Awesome

When you walk around and look at everything around you, chances are, you may see a face. It may be human, it may be an animal, but sometimes you can see faces in inanimate objects. This is called Pareidolia: Seeing faces in random things!

"A History of the Sky" show an entire year of skies in less than five minutes. http://bit.ly/1sb8TSa

This is a) beautiful, and b) reminded me of Lea Redmond’s awesome knitted daily sky scarf.

"The English language is like London: proudly barbaric yet deeply civilised, too, common yet royal, vulgar yet processional, sacred yet profane. Each sentence we produce, whether we know it or not, is a mongrel mouthful of Chaucerian, Shakespearean, Miltonic, Johnsonian, Dickensian and American. Military, naval, legal, corporate, criminal, jazz, rap and ghetto discourses are mingled at every turn. The French language, like Paris, has attempted, through its Academy, to retain its purity, to fight the advancing tides of Franglais and international prefabrication. English, by comparison, is a shameless whore."

Stephen Fry, The Ode Less Travelled: Unlocking the Poet Within (via theoxfordbreakdown)

France has a ministry of Language that decides whether new words are masculine or feminine and thus how they are pronounced and spelled! It’s so pure compared to English…

"

It’s not too late to make a difference. The turnout at the last European elections was about 44 percent. Enough people stayed at home to literally win the election for anybody. Young people sometimes feel, ‘I can’t be bothered to vote because none of the parties say anything I’m interested in’. Yeah, that’s because you don’t vote. It’s a vicious circle. That’s like saying, ‘I’ll stop flicking soggy cornflakes at you when you stop looking so annoyed and milky’. Aside from money, the only thing politicians need from the population is votes. And if you’re not a source of votes, they don’t care about you.

I vote for the same reason that I would punch a bear that was eating me. I don’t think it’ll make a big difference to the outcome, but at least that way it doesn’t look like I want to be eaten by a bear.

Please vote…

If you don’t vote the only message it sends is — do what you want, I’m already bending over.

We’ve all been there. The train is coming into the station, and you grab your MetroCard and quickly try and swipe it at a turnstile.

"Please Swipe Again". "Please Swipe Again". "Insufficient Fare".

The last two words are killer. You think to yourself “I swear I had a balance on this card”….
