What do old single people do when they don’t want to party anymore, they don’t go to church & fuck running clubs?
I am a fan of this
Worth remembering every single time you make a purchase.
"Occasionally I wonder why I can be so happy. The answer is that every day of my life I’ve worked only for myself and for the joy that comes from writing and creating. The image in my mirror is not optimistic, but the result of optimal behaviour."
Ray Bradbury, author and father of Science Fiction
I’m not an optimist, so this is something I can strive for.
The history of Mesopotamia in a 10 minute cartoon for adults? Yes please!
Former mental_floss writers John and Hank Green have started a new nerdy thing on YouTube, and it’s pretty great: Crash Course is a series of educational videos covering World History (John) and Biology (Hank). The production values are high (including animation, HD, all that good stuff), and each video is about ten minutes long.
So without further ado, I give you Crash Course #1: The Agricultural Revolution.
Not a history of Mesopotamia…it’s about the Agricultural Revolution, but I <3 Mental Floss so it warms my heart to see the sexy John Green again!
Done. & Done.

Another of my top favorite books…
Brb. Flying to Europe just to buy a frieking strawberry.
I love living in Europe
I am too alone in the world, and yet not alone enough
to make every moment holy.
I am too tiny in this world, and not tiny enough
just to lie before you like a thing,
shrewd and secretive.
-Rainer Maria Rilke
