Just get on a bike. You'll never see a pro cyclist with a round stomach. Abs of doom are the norm for those guys. Plus you can use it to go places which beats the hell out of staring at a gym wall.

They can speed up whale sounds so we can hear their songs. Now they've slowed down cricket songs so we can hear them too.
 
(TruthSeekerDaily) Composer Jim Wilson has recorded the sound of crickets and then slowed down the recording, revealing something so amazing. The crickets sound like they are singing the most angelic chorus in perfect harmony. Though it sounds like human voices, everything you hear in the recording

Interestingly when they played the sounds of Hedgehogs being struck by traffic at 10x normal speed, it replicated Justin Bieber's new album.

LOL
Just recently, journalist Nader Al-Sarras was riding the metro in Berlin, when he spotted this bag designed by Rock Paper Scissors. It reads: This text has no other purpose than to terrify those who are afraid of the Arabic language. Genius, huh? Nader thought so too, so he took a picture and posted it to Facebook. It has gone viral since, with over 35k likes and 15k shares.

I dunno. I think making people anxious (and then telling them to 'get over it') is a kind of shabby bullying. Also, poking tigers is a really bad idea in general.

How completely appalling and wrong in every respect this is. And how ludicrous that the 'sophisticated and nuanced, historically-aware and worldly' French haven't grasped that innovations like the burkini are expressly not symbols of submission to oppression, but rather assimilative, self-assertive adaptations by Muslim women to the reality of living in diverse cultures and the desire to resolve conflicting expectations. What's not to like, after all, about great-looking clothing that liberates women to have fun at the beach?

Introduction
Are you an artist or you wish you were? Here's what I wish I had read 30 years ago: 

“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.” ― Ira Glass

Maybe you circled me because of something I wrote? Thanks! 

George Carlin on the Occupy movement. 

Howard Zinn on the 99%  "One percent of the nation owns a third of the wealth. The rest of the wealth is distributed in such a way as to turn those in the 99 percent against one another: small property owners against the propertyless, black against white, native-born against foreign-born, intellectuals and professionals against the uneducated and unskilled. These groups have resented one another and warred against one another with such vehemence and violence as to obscure their common position as sharers of leftovers in a very wealthy country."
- Howard Zinn, excerpt from The People's History of the United States  [He died before the Occupy movement was born, but he was there when it was conceived.] 

I believe in simple solutions to complicated problems.
I believe in worker-owned businesses.
I believe we ought to reward production and tax waste.
