This picture of a young couple making out in the middle of the hockey-related riot in Vancouver is truly inspiring. Love will find a way.
Here is an awesome photography set depicting our world in soap bubbles. Unfortunately I don’t know anything about the photographer who put these together so I apologize but it is definitely rad stuff. I was also going to label the location of each bubble, but quickly realized my geography skills aren’t as good as i thought they were. Some noticeable locations are Chicago, D.C., New York, among many others. I don’t know why they didn’t include my beloved home state of New Jersey, maybe the soap bubbles wouldn’t last more than .3 seconds in the polluted air, or maybe that back drop of run down factories and fist pumping guidos wasn’t to appeasing to the eye.

No this is not a Back to the Future project starring Marty McFly and Doc Brown. It is a photography project by Irina Werning who is a professional photographer from Buenos Aires. She explains on her site that she is totally obsessed with old photographs, so when she would visit other people’s houses she would immediately be drawn to the old photographs hanging on the wall. When looking at the pictures she would think what that person would look like in the same pose, same outfit, and same scene. Well she actually started doing it and it is pretty amazing and awesome. She admits the is a little obsessive on the detail, but that is what makes these photographs so great. For more of her work and more on this project you can check out her website found here.

You can call me immature, but this exam answer is hilarious. The best part was it wasn’t just any test, this was the kid’s biology FINAL.
Reddit user mygrapefruit, previously featured here for coloring Malcom Browne’s burning monk photo, expressed his talents once again with Alfred Eisenstaedt’s ‘V-J Day in Times Square’.
Usually I look at these things and get pissed off that my state, New Jersey, got hosed with “What we’re famous for”, but I am pleasantly comfortable with the choice of the Italian sub as our flagship food item. The only other food item that you could make a valid argument for New Jersey is taylor ham, which is only available in the garden state, but that is just nit picking, check out what your state is known for by clicking on the image twice to enlarge as always.
I’ve never been to Mt. Baker, Washington but as a snowboarder I’ve seen countless photos and footage of the infamous Mt. Baker road gap. It’s a right of passage for any pro snowboarder and they come from around the world to hit it. The line into the gap runs through the woods and the lip of the kicker is some 40ft above the road and has reached as high as 60ft with snow. The first person to hit the gap was snowboard legend Shawn Farmer doing a shirtless method air in the original Totally Board video in 1989. Here are some photos from the legendary gap.
I know everyone likes to make a huge fuss every time they think is going to snow, but damn, THAT was a storm. The above photo is in Brooklyn, where many people decided it was best to just abandon their cars instead of not driving at all. This is the one time I think Im excited about NOT having a car. Approximately 20 inches of snow fell in Central Park according to the National Weather Service. NYC and a large swath of the East Coast got dumped on, leaving some subway riders stranded, airports closed, service on the LIRR suspended, buses trapped, and sidewalks covered so badly, people are basically walking in the streets. This reportedly cost the city $1 million per inch to cleanup, and they arent even close. I went out for lunch today and Prince Street looks like someones driveway.
Poor guy, the only time he’ll ever meet her and he didn’t even stroke her hair. And that’s why I’m not allowed to meet her again.
