If you are like me and often wonder how that thing you are drinking is made or what's exactly in it, this interesting infographic will help you figure it out. It shows how the different countries in the world prepare their most popular alcoholic beverages and what ingredients they use.

I can't imagine, after getting vodka so completely wrong, that they would have any worth while information on anything else.

Lars is amazing. Go Lars.
 
This video is nearly six minutes long. I understand that asking you, dear reader, to watch a six-minute video of some dude doing archery tricks in his garage and the woods by his house is a tall order, but you need to do this. You need to watch Lars Andersen, master of ancient and long-forgotten bow skills, do his damn thing.

Watch Steven Soderbergh’s Re-Edited Version of Kubrick’s "2001: A Space Odyssey" Free Online http://goo.gl/q2UCGU  
In 2013, Steven Soderbergh told me during an interview that he was retiring. “Five years ago, as we were finishing Che, I said, ‘OK, when I turn 50, I want to be done. I'm going to jam in as much as I can, but when I turn 50, I want to be done.'' Yet Soderbergh’s concept of retirement must be different from most mortals.

NASA Exoplanet "Travel Posters" Aim To Help With Space Trip Planning

What beauty, and what awesome travel slogans! NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory has created a set of “Exoplanet Travel Posters” to bring you — at least in your imagination — to actual exoplanets.

Whether you have a fancy for skydiving, or doing astronomy with two Suns, it appears there is a spot to whet your imagination.

I always enjoy watching the interactions between children and animals   http://www.boredpanda.com/animals-children-black-and-white-watercolor-art-elicia-edijanto/
Indonesian artist Elicia Elidanto creates delicate watercolor paintings which depict the intimate relashionship between children and animals. Her black and white watercolors show silhouettes of small children standing in front of majestic and dangerous creatures.

How our many languages came to be (via TED-Ed):
Over the course of human history, thousands of languages have developed from what was once a much smaller number. How did we end up with so many? And how do we keep track of them all? Alex Gendler explains how linguists group languages into language families, demonstrating how these linguistic trees give us crucial insights into the past.

Budget X: Hands-on with Fujifilm's new X-A2 - Fujifilm has announced the X-A2, a new version of its X-A1 budget X-series mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, which incorporates mostly minor changes compared to its predecessor. Like the X-A1, the X-A2 uses a conventional Bayer-pattern CMOS sensor and offers virtually identical ergonomics but now comes with an LCD screen which tilts upwards to 175-degrees for selfies. Other improvements include the addition of Fujifilm... http://ow.ly/2TojHW

Wow, these are really cool.
 
"If you draw something, I will add to it."

The simple promise that inspired a love of art and some spectacular collaborative drawings, from a brilliantly creative science teacher.
“If you draw something, I will add to it.” The red pen never felt so good.
