Crazy crisps – Or, as we call ‘em on this side of the pond, “chips.” (Actually, I like “crisps” too. Makes sense.) Anyway, the real reason I linked to this… Chili & Chocolate crisps!? I know everything goes better with chocolate but I can’t quite wrap my mind around that one.
Longnecks – a fun photo
Nathaniel Bowditch – An interesting and important person I hadn’t heard of before.
Reading room – Beautiful! That first photo is more or less what my private library will look like after I win the big one in Powerball. Maybe some different chairs. I’m not in love with the gold wingbacks.
Scary Science – Not recommended for luddites or other chronic worriers. Some nice science and science fiction art accompanies the end-of-the-world scenarios.
History of Medicine exhibition – Some creepy and disturbing items, as you might expect, but also some surprisingly beautiful items like the feeding cup, the backrest and the medicine chests.
Upcycling – If someone in Oklahoma did this it would be considered “tacky redneck trash” or, at best, maybe “quirky outsider art”.
Rock Threads – 70s fashion. I don’t care what anyone says… the stuff we wore back then is still way cooler than four-sizes-too-big pants sagging down around the hips exposing the wearer’s underwear.
Bad Paintings of Barack Obama – Some are bad but many are not all that bad and a few I would even call pretty good. An odd, poorly designed site. Keep clicking Refresh or Reload to see new images. Sometimes you’ll see one you’ve already seen before you’ve seen them all and often you’ll get a “Service temporarily unavailable” message. Just based on the filenames I’m guessing that there are at least 40 images, maybe more. (via In4mador!)
Butterfly “window” – beautiful, amazing work of art
15 Amazing Monasteries, Sanctuaries and Abbies – These are truly beautiful and even awe-inspiring.
