I'll drink to the stars in the sky, the ocean at night and to the land that made me who I am. We're infinite-death is the next great adventure. I like fast things, pretty places and stuff that goes boom.

Tycho Brahe was an astronomer who lived in 1500s. He was also mad as a balloon. He’s partly remembered for some of his astronomical observatins, but mostly he’s remembered for being mas as a balloon.

But how mad can anyone with that moustache really be?

Before Brahe came…


“Do you remember “Das männlein im walde”, Herr Dortlich? Mischa loved that song. Let’s sing for Mischa!”

whenever i see these post-apocalyptic films set in the USA where everyone is pretty much just killing each other with no mention of other nations i always just assume that the rest of the world is fine and has learnt how to resume life as normal

Best Astrophotography of the Year, as chosen by the Royal Observatory Greenwich.

From both an existential and purely technical/photographic aspect, these shots blow my mind. Check out the full gallery of winners at My Modern Met.

(Top two images by Mark Gee, bottom image by Adam Block)

Bonus: Check out grand prize winner Mark Gee’s breathtaking video of a rising moon and tiny human silhouettes, pointing at it and ooh-ing and ahh-ing and generally marveling at the lunar awesomeness. It’s just … wow.

These are called Toronama Donuts. They aren’t your typical doughnuts which are fried, cooked or baked. They are frozen and made from various glazed toppings, sweet pastes, sauces, fruits, dessert creams, and the like, formed into the iconic and popular doughnut ring shape.
They are said to have a melt-in-your-mouth and creamy texture that makes people go wild and be willing to line up for hours in front of the shop just to buy them.
The shop that sells these is located in Nagoya City in Japan and is called, Love Sweets Antique. It is owned and run by Heart Bread Antique, a bakery chain in Aichi Prefecture.

The variety of worlds science fiction accustoms us to, through imagination, is training for thinking about the actual changes—sometimes catastrophic, often confusing—that the real world funnels at us year after year. It helps us avoid feeling quite so gob-smacked.
