Aerial Views of American Sprawl

By Christoph Gielen

Christoph Gielen’s aerial views offer a look at America’s most aberrant and unusual sprawl forms in ways we usually don’t get to see them: from far above the ground—a vantage point that reveals both the intricate geometry as well as the idiosyncratic allure of these developments.

The Sleep Schedules Of 27 Of History’s Greatest Minds
What do Freud, Maria Abramovi, Beethoven, and you have in common? For one, the need to sleep.
The science of sleep and its glorious effects on creativity, productivity, and sanity gets a lot of press these days. That said, the sleep habits of some of your favorite writers, musicians, and artists may surprise you a little.
The bedtimes and rising times of history’s greatest minds are inventively illustrated in Mason Currey’s Daily Rituals: How Artists Work. The infographic seems to debunk the myth that geniuses stay up through the wee hours working manically, and that you’re more creative when you’re tired—most of these 27 luminaries got a wholesome eight hours a night.

Interesting approach, Balzac.

A young man and a woman enjoy swimming in flooded St. Mark’s Square in Venice, Italy, Sunday, Nov. 11, 2012. I want this.

NEED THIS

Hundreds of years of human history and culture and architecture are literally sinking into the ocean, and you need to swim in them??? okay

You people realize they dump their sewer water into the canals. Right? Hence why it is ‘tourists’ swimming not ‘locals swimming’

Cycling in the rain.

If cycling was all about great weather conditions, I think Australia would have the most people on bikes… Trust me. European cycling cities are not blessed with the same great weather. In Holland, there’s an expression that goes something like this: “You’re not made of sugar”. 

Great bicycle infrastructure is what makes riding easier.

Uma cobra protege dois filhotinhos por 48 horas após eles caírem por acidente em um buraco, na Índia. No início, pensou-se que ela queria atacá-los, mas depois notaram que ela estava cuidando dos cãezinhos. Quando resgatados, os filhotes voltaram para sua casa e a cobra foi libertada em uma floresta.
Não tem como não compartilhar isso com vocês.

A snake protects two pups for 48 hours after they accidentally fall into a hole, India. At first, it was thought that she wanted to attack them, but then noticed she was caring for puppies. When rescued, the chicks back to their house and the snake was released into a forest. 

It is impossible not to share it with you.
