How to mail letters with your cell phone (at least in Denmark and Sweden)

(8 years ago)
If you think about it, money is weird, and we seek to make it invisible. I've heard rumors that in the basements of the Federal Reserve, the Bank of England and others, there are cages full of gold bars belonging to particular countries, and as currency fluctuates or transactions are enacted, forklifts shuttle the bars from one cage to another.We consumers carry paper cash, a bunch of scrips, so we don't have to learn to drive forklifts. And our use of the paper is continually decreasing, as we switch to little plastic cards or tapping out keystrokes on Amazon. We see physical representations of money less and less.(more...)

Cat-atonic Kitty (Video)

(8 years ago)
This has got to be the sleepiest cat ever! Well, at least until next week that is. :) My cat sometimes goes to deep sleep and you can play with her paws without her even noticing it, but this cat looks like it is half dead or something. There is no waking it up. Maybe another zombie cat?

Building a "backpack for your everyday life:" Evan & Gabby document a Tiny House project

(8 years ago)
We've all heard of Jay Shafer's Tiny Houses, but it's one thing to see the founder espousing his design and quite another to see a non-affiliated couple actually building the thing. Last June, an otherwise anonymous guy and girl named Evan and Gabby became taken with the idea of tiny houses. Writes Evan,One of my passions in life is backpacking. I thrive on the opportunity that back-country travel affords one to completely simplify to the most basic essentials. I find nothing in my daily life to be as rewarding as carrying only the things you need for your basic needs and immediate comfort. This guy (Jay Shafer) might just have figured out how to do what I have not these many years: merge the two worlds of home and back-country living. Jay's Tumbleweed Tiny Houses are backpacks for your every day life!They ordered one and began building it out, and have been documenting the entire progress on their blog. Nothing makes a thing seem more do-able than two people with no construction experience walking you through every step of the process, from putting in the gas and electric to nailing in the actual boards. Check it out here.(more...)
