If grandmothers around the world had a rallying cry, it would probably sound something like “You need to eat!”
Photographer Gabriele Galimberti’s grandmother said something similar to him before one of his many globetrotting work trips. To ensure he had at least one good meal, she prepared for him a dish of ravioli before he departed on one of his adventures.
“In that occasion I said to my grandma ‘You know, Grandma, there are many other grandmas around the world and most of them are really good cooks,” Galimberti wrote via email. “I’m going to meet them and ask them to cook for me so I can show you that you don’t have to be worried for me and the food that I will eat!’ This is the way my project was born!”
The project, “Delicatessen With Love”, took Galimberti to 58 countries where he photographed grandmothers with both the ingredients and finished signature dishes.
He acted as photographer and stylist during each shoot with the grandmothers, taking a portrait of both the women and the food they made for him.

Christmas in Arendelle
NO YOU CAN’T THROW CHRISTMAS INTO THIS
IMAGINE ELSA SPENDING CHRISTMAS ALONE IN HER ROOM WITH HER OWN LITTLE ICE TREE.
AND SINGING CHRISTMAS CAROLS WITH TEARS IN HER EYES BECAUSE SHE WANTS TO GIVE ANNA A PRESENT BUT SHE CAN’T.
BUT THEN THERE’S A KNOCK AT THE DOOR AND THE PITTER-PATTER OF LITTLE FEET RUNNING AWAY, AND WHEN ELSA FINALLY HAS THE COURAGE TO OPEN IT THERE’S A PRESENT FROM ANNA JUST SITTING THERE.
FIRST OF ALL HOW DARE YOU
SECOND OF ALL WHO GAVE YOU THE RIGHT
NASA helped invent cordless power tools. Why? Why would NASA be interested in home improvement? Well, they weren’t. What they wanted was a way for their astronauts to dig on the surface of the moon. For science and stuff. Back in those days power tools needed a lot more energy and no one had figured out how to make batteries big or efficient enough. But NASA wanted its moon dust, and by george it was goingt to get it. They teamed up with Black & Decker and soon had a battery that worked. Not only did it make tools safer and smaller, they paved the way for other battery-based tech, like ipods and cell phones.
This is why funding NASA is important. A lot of innovation and breakthroughs come from the space program that improve life on Earth.

Look, if you’re trying to seduce, use an oven.
a pod of eleven killer whales - a family of two adults and nine juveniles - was discovered trapped in the ice of the hudson bay off the coast of the small inuit village of inukjuak. confined for two days in the small breathing hole, the whales began to panic as they tried unsuccessfully to find another breathing hole and their way to sea.
while an icebreaker ship would typically be brought in to free the orcas, the closest crew was thirty six hours away, so the villagers decided to cut a half mile of holes for the killer whales to travel through on their way to open water. the village mayor noted that it was unusual to see orcas in the area in january, but that the waters were late to freeze this year.

Yo, I’ve been diagnosed (and taking medication) for ADHD for the past twelve years, but I don’t really know a lot about symptoms and actual effects of ADHD on my behavior and brain function. Could someone send me a link to somewhere that talks about ADHD in more than just diagnosing symptoms?
I’ve recently decided to freeze myself to -273℃. My friends think I’ll die, but I’ll be 0K.
