Joy knows no age.
Welcome to the most heart-warming video ever.
Though they'd never met before, they went on an adventure to Barcelona, became besties, and proved that life really is a lovely thing.
Joy knows no age.
It was a difficult quiz.
Not such Tokyo-based mother Aya Sakai’s photos of her son and their French Bulldog, have I seen such a cute pairing like this! Meet Zoey and Jasper. Lifestyle photographer Grace Chon recently turned the camera on her 10-month-old Chinese-Korean baby Jasper and their 7-year-old rescue dog Zoey, putting them side by side in the most adorable portraits you’ll see today. What led her to start a series? “I’ve always dressed up my dogs in silly costumes, so naturally when I had a baby I started collecting some hats for photos,” Grace tells us. “One day, I put one on Zoey and I had the epiphany that baby hats look ridiculously adorable on dogs too! My sister had the brilliant idea of sitting them side by side in a photo. The response was immediate and I just kept going with it. I love my dogs fiercely (I’m a crazy dog lady through and through!) and it was really important to me that my dogs have a great relationship with Jasper. Zoey has exceeded my expectations as a big sister and I’m so glad I’ve found a fun activity that involves both of them!”

Photojournalist Peter Menzel and his wife and writer Faith D'Aluisio, from California, spent three years travelling to 30 countries visiting countless people to document what they eat over the course of a single day. The result is a fascinating study of people and their diets. Menzel’s long research culminated in a stunning photobook entitled "What I Eat: Around The World In 80 Diets" where Menzel featured 80 profiles including such diverse types as a Japanese sumo wrestler, a Massai herdswoman, an Arctic hunter, an Indian Hindu sadhu, a Sudanese refugee in Chad, a Tibetan yak herder, a Bangladeshi factory seamstress, and a wounded Iraq war veteran, among others. Each image is accompanied by a detailed breakdown of the meals and brief essays on food politics and cultural obsessions with diet.

Kate in Wuthering Heights (1978)
Maybe scary things just go together? Why else would this shark and knife look so right? Created by the design studio Propaganda, this sharpener is aptly named “Jaws” and has a no-slip bottom for stability. It may not be super heavy duty, but if you just have a few kitchen knives it’s a good option for giving them a refresh every few months.
Cue the Jaws music.

1. Great white sharks found off the coast of Seal Island in South Africa will jump 10 feet out of the water to attack unsuspecting seals.
2. Sharks can detect the heartbeats of their prey via electricity-sensing nodules on their noses called ampullae of Lorenzini.
3. There is a one in 3.7 million chance of being killed by a shark.
4. Lantern sharks can glow in the dark.
5. Sharks can heat their eyes, allowing them to see in frigid waters.
6. At more than 20 feet long, great white sharks are the largest predatory fish on earth.
7. The great white has more than 300 razor-sharp teeth in its mouth.
8. Great whites can also detect one drop of blood in 25 gallons of water and can sense tiny amounts of blood in the water from three miles away.
in a political critique with a cutting comical tone, the artist's animated gifs find a connection between the glamor oriented drag-queen culture and the bureaucratic sphere.

Our favorite photographer of everything creepy and crawly under the sea, Alexander Semenov, recently released a number of incredible new photographs of worms, several of which may be completely unknown to science. Half of the photos were taken at the Lizard Island Research Station near the Great Barrier Reef in Australia during a 2-week conference on marine worms called polychaetes. Semenov photographed 222 different worm species which are now in the process of being studied and documented by scientists.
The other half of the photos were taken during Semenov’s normal course of work at the White Sea Biological Station in northern Russia where he’s head of the scientific divers team. We’ve previously featured the intrepid photographer’s work with jellyfish (part 2, part 3), and starfish.
Jessica Shyba, mother of three, and blogger at the site MommasGoneCity.com picked up their puppy Theo - a shar-pei and German shepherd mix - from a pound in Santa Cruz when he was about 7 weeks old. Jessica decided to train Theo to sleep in his pen, but the pup wouldn’t sleep alone. Unable to stand his cries at night, she eventually let him sleep in bed with her. The moment she introduced Theo to their bedroom, Theo climbed up on top of her two-year old son Beau, and “it was just the cutest, most natural thing," tells Jessica. Every day now, when Shyba puts Beau down for his nap, Theo follows and they sleep together for a minimum of 2 hours. Beau and Theo are now internet sensation after pictures of them napping together went viral on Instagram last month.

Broidery on a medieval page
Holes in the pages of medieval books are common. They were easily made (by the parchment maker’s knife), as in this wonderful case. Fixing it by stitching the hole together with strings of parchment is also common: parchment makers did it all the time, leaving behind “scars” on the page. What is totally unusual, however, is the repairs seen in this 14th-century book in Uppsala, Sweden. The damage is repaired, or at least masked, by good old broidery. It was done by the nuns who purchased the book in 1417. It is delightful to think that they took the effort to make a medieval hole disappear by replacing it with patterns like this, made up from pieces of silk in the most vivid of colors.
