Ceramic artist Laura C. Hewitt creates a wide range of cups, plates, and other ceramic objects imprinted with letters and numbers from old typewriter keys. The Alaska-based artist utilizes fragments from mathematical formulas, programming languages, and other science-influenced designs, all carefully applied with a variety of typewriter letters in black ink to create one-of-a-kind pieces. Hewitt shares about her craft:
Most of my work has been influenced by the dichotomies and juxtapositions of rural Alaskan living. I’m particularly interested in exploring the intersections between technology and nature, art and craft, destruction and creation. As inspiration, I look for the magical within the mundane, provoke thoughtfulness with the practical and animate the pragmatic with mischievousness.
Le photographe Robert Götzfried, basé à Munich, a effectué le trajet entre Washington DC et Memphis. Sur la route il a choisi de capturer toutes les curiosités architecturales et les lieux qui paraissaient abandonnés : des maisons, des stations-services ou des magasins. Il a rassemblé ses prises de vues dans une série intitulée Back Roads.

Como intento de suicidio no está mal, pero algo nos hace sospechar que el sujeto en cuestión no está muy convencido de llevarlo a término.
El tipo parece inteligente y tiene estudios ¿Por qué no ha vaciado la piscina antes de apretar el gatillo?
Es de suponer que lo hará en un segundo intento. Esperamos atentos a que alguien suba la grabación a su canal de youtube.
Ver más: agua, balas, física, fusiles, piscina, suicidio

Stop making stupid people famous!
After claiming to have watched Felix Baumgartner’s famous Red Bull Stratos jump from the edge of space, recording artist B.o.B is furiously tweeting everything science says about the Earth being round is a total lie. Why is he doing this? We have an idea.
Update: Neil deGrasse Tyson has joined the fray to lay the scientific smackdown on B.o.B.
Tyson sent the rapper multiple tweets disproving him and then things got personal.
Update: This feud is getting weirder and weirder. B.o.B released a new track “Flatline” on Monday, that takes a few shots at Neil deGrasse Tyson. “Aye, Neil Tyson need to loosen up his vest,” the rapper spits. “They’ll probably write that man one hell of a check.”
And then Tyson fired back with a diss track of his own. Really.
The astrophysicist enlisted the help of his nephew Stephen J. Tyson, who is apparently a rapper. Tyson delivers the facts at B.o.B. over a Drake beat.
Update: It got better. Neil deGrasse Tyson apparently wasn’t done educating B.o.B. Here’s what happened on The Nightly Show:
Oh my god this got better.
i’m sorry but there is no way you could have stopped me from standing on my chair and screeching like a banshee if i saw this live…
“ballet isn’t a sport”
The thing about this is, you can barely see their muscles straining from effort. The effort to keep each other and themselves balanced, definitely, but that guy’s hand is barely shaking. The amount of training and strength and balance to go into this is fucking insane.
What if you relived life's activities in big clumps? Thirty years of sleeping in one go. Five months sitting on the toilet. Based on David Eagleman's Sum: Forty Tales from the Afterlives, this short film by Temujin Doran imagines such a life. Watch to the end.

Kansai International Airport is located on an artificial island in the middle of Osaka Bay, Japan. To create the island, a 30 meter (98-foot) layer of earth was created on top of the seafloor with 21 million cubic meters of landfill. The material was excavated from three separate mountains. As of 2008, the total cost of Kansai Airport was $20 billion USD, including land reclamation that has been necessary to prevent its continued sinkage (7.1 centimeters per year as of 2008) into the bay.
When Luciano Pia undertook to design a five-storey, 63-unit residential apartment building in Turin, Italy, he sought to break from the homogenous urban development that was consuming the area. What resulted was 25 Verde, an extraordinary urban treehouse that blurs the lines been the domestic and the wild, captures a certain childlike imagination with branches rendered in steel, and whose exterior is melded with 150 trees, as well as a vast array of additional plants to which protect residents against noise pollution, and reduce air pollution in the neighborhood.
