Senses working overtime #96

1 Free

Isn't it grand to get something for free. No hitches. No fine print. Try Visualhunt. This is a great site for free images.

2 The Avengers are back...well, not yet...but soon
Oooooeee - This looks like being grrrrrrreat!

3 Poor Melania Trump

Apparently she feels 'very, very strongly about women’s issues, women’s difficulties. Very, very strongly. She’s a very, very strong advocate' (guess who)

This piece from the New Yorker is hilarious!! Try this taster:

It doesn’t matter if you are a Democrat or a Republican or a neo-fascist’s Stepford wife: period cramps feel like something stabbing its way out of your uterus.

4 How Jimmy met Robert
Great piece about the nascent relationship between Page and Plant.

5 Star Wars toys

Hasbro is tapping in to the 40th anniversary of Episode 4 in an awesome way.


The world's rarest film? Not any more!

Senses working overtime #95

1 India leads the space race!

Yes, you read that right. India recently sent 104 satellites into space FROM THE SAME ROCKET! Amazing story!

2 Our IQ's are better but we're not smart
Nice to see Nu Zild get some focus via this BBC story. Appears the modern world is not making our best and brightest very savvy. Savvy!

3 Keanu!
He's great in The Matrix and excellent as John Wick. A celebration of the Reevenator!

4 Drunk as a thrush
English has a staggering number of words for being drunk. Seriously!

5 Time waits for no one
Great piece from Brad Had (excellent and appropriate name) about work life balance. As Brad's reference to Bertrand Russell lamented, “without a considerable amount of leisure a man is cut off from many of the best things". Go read!


Empathy - connections. Great little clip.

1 Do the Bartman

Nifty list of predictions made on The Simpsons that...gasp...have come true!

2 The Donald vs California
Yikes - fascinating article from the Washington Post on how California and the Trumpet are at war with each other.

3 Histography
WOW!! This site is AMAZING. If you like history, cool infographics, stories (who doesn't huh?) you will LOVE this! Hours of fun!

4 London!

I love London and these photographs are fantastic!

5 Reflect, medicate, take some time

I include this photo to remind myself that these moments are important. I haven't had too many of them lately...

This popped up in my YouTube alert from Abbey Road. Great song, song video and a message for the ages!

Senses working overtime #93

1 Trump takes on Arnie. Trump loses.

He never should have! The Terminator wins in this tit for tat.

2 See the world differently
One of my former students sent me this - and a cool message about how teachers can affect students. Love it!

3 Superbowl ads
Go the Atlanta Falcons - anyone but the Patriots! The winner on the day will be the advertising and half time show. Here's your fifteen best ads from previous iterations.

4 Sarah Cooper rocks!

5 Need some inspiration?
Thomas Oppong is my go to guy. Check out this post and some great quotes.
