Wait a second...SERIOUSLY???
I'm laughing a lot at these
My dogs tried to trade me a hibiscus flower and a tennis ball, for the snack I was eating
The glasses killed me
An interesting take on the downsides of a la carte TV

A few Latvian activists from a branch of the bicycle advocacy group Let’s Bike it recently created a visual reminder of the space taken by cars on a typical road. To accomplish this, the group fabricated bamboo skeletons shaped like actual cars and mounted them on their bikes. The activists then cycled around the streets of Riga for several hours to highlight the absurdity of using a large car to move a single person. The stunt was organized as part of European Mobility Week, an ongoing campaign that explores sustainable urban mobility around Europe. (via Designboom, My Modern Met)
This video is incredible
Beautiful Chemistry is a new collaboration between Tsinghua University Press and University of Science and Technology of China that seeks to make chemistry more accessible and interesting to the general public. Their first project was the creation of several short films that utilize a 4K UltraHD camera to capture a variety of striking chemical reactions without the usual clutter of test tubes, beakers or lab equipment. I definitely would have paid a bit more attention in chemistry class if we’d had the opportunity to watch some of these. Filmed and edited by Yan Liang.
That Angelina Jolie one with the bullet bending
Yeah, I might have watched a movie and gotten kind of mad.
This is seriously a trope I’d love to never see again though.

now that I’ve learned I can’t unsee it
The more I think about it, I am not so sure I want a Black Widow movie any more.
Quite excited to check this out
Checked out the new Schuylkill River Banks Boardwalk this weekend and was completely amazed! Loved the design, loved the views, and loved the slight feeling of escape it gave. Huge pat on the back to the City and the Schuylkill River Development Corporation for supporting such a fantastic project.
Now with that said, I think there’s always room for improvement, so below I’m suggesting five ways to build on the existing boardwalk over the next few months/years to make it even better…
1. Work with an artist to create a permanent light installation along part of the boardwalk, perhaps even bring back/evolve J. Meejin Yoon & Mural Arts’ ‘Light Drift’ from 2010.
2. The new boardwalk offers such great views of the South Street Bridge, so to build on that: Create a waterfall across the entire span of the South Street Bridge that would use sensors to allow boats to pass under, a bit like this waterfall swing set, like a much wider version of what artist Olafur Eliasson did with the Brooklyn Bridge in 2008.
3. Install a large sculpture(s) on the sliver of land between the railroad and the river to view from the boardwalk… Perhaps KAWS?
5. Last but not least: Music and live theater! On busy weekends, work with the Philadelphia Orchestra (The Philadelphia Gay Men’s Chorus, the Kimmel Center, high school theater groups, and the list goes on…) to perform small sets on one or more boats/barges floating just next to the boardwalk.
What are your ideas to build on Philly’s new boardwalk?
Reddit communities can be extremely specific, but the r/michaelbaygifs subreddit is universal. Who wouldn’t be blown away by a group dedicated to planting cluster bombs of explosive Michael Bay-related GIFs and then detonating them all over the Internet? (Sorry, couldn’t help it.) Just to be clear, these gifs don’t come from actual Michael Bay movies—they just take inspiration from the Transformers director’s well-documented obsession with making things go boom (and occasionally from his pal J.J. Abrams). But watching cats (or a gorilla on a bike, or the subreddit itself) blow up into flaming CGI shrapnel has the same entertainment value as an average Michael Bay movie—with approximately the same amount of plot.
