“Inclined to have a cup of tea? This 2011 Red Dot Design winner will turn your break into a meditative escape, steeped in contemporary style. The teacup has an unusual angled bottom that allows it to rest in two different positions. On one side is a screened compartment in which you place your favorite loose tea leaves. Pour hot water through the screen and allow it to steep. Once it’s done, simply tip the cup in the other direction, lifting the leaves up out of the water. The cup’s large size is perfect for cradling between your hands as you enjoy the warmth of your drink. Screen is removable for simple clean-up. Made from SAN (thermo resistant food grade plastic) and features a glossy interior and matte exterior. Dishwasher safe. Not microwave safe. Designed in Finland; made in China. “
I love when snap judgements are corrected. This little guy has specific tastes that some may find odd given his choice of dress.
This is dedicated to a time when a guy dressed very similar to him came onto the train with what seemed to be a scowl. An elderly woman who studied him with bright eyes smiled and said to him “I love your hair young man!!” to which he grinned wide and replied “thank you maam, I appreciate it”. Start of a beautiful day.
Stephen Wiltshire. This young artist is grabbing a lot of attention by the likes of CBS and other national news outlets. Stephen has been drawing cities since being diagnosed with autism at a young age, saying it’s his way to express himself. What’s unique about this artist though is that all he needs is a 20 minute helicopter ride above New York and after 7 days, 12 pens, and a lot of music on his ipod, he finishes the massive 18 ft accurate depiction of the city all from memory. He’s so accurate that when drawing Rome, he drew the exact number of columns in the Pantheon. His work is being shown at Brooklyn’s Pratt Institute along with his permanent gallery in the Royal Opera Arcade, Pall Mal.
These surfers were bored and looking for a place to surf so they made their own humongous wave…by hand. Some environmentalist complained that they were ruining the environment and the habitats of the animal life within the lake. However, it was explained that every year the rain causes this river to overflow and often flood into the neighboring road & towns so they are actually doing the community a huge service. Over time the river returns and they do it all over. Science is AWESOME!!!!
