I can only imagine that this website is getting a huge amount of traffic. The writer, Tim Urban, creates highly intelligent and laugh-out-loud funny articles on an array of topics. I read an amazing one by him about why my generation is unhappy (I totally got the story he told) and most recently I read a fascinating inside look at the world’s black hole—North Korea. I highly recommend giving this piece the time it necessitates considering all the photos, videos and links.
Read the piece to learn why this video is unbelievably disturbing.
And while you’re on the site, don’t forget to check out the hysterical About page.
Just press play and weep from laughter.
I must say this video seems to confirm all of our suspicion, that orchestras really do not need a conducter all the time.
Improve Everywhere had a small orchestra sit on a sidewalk in New York city and put up a conductor’s stand that anyone was invited to come up and use. Sweetness ensued.
You won’t believe that this is real corn but it is. There are people who are expert glass gem corn growers. It’s breathtaking.
I’ve come to believe that one of the things that inhibits us from getting the Holocaust, or many other events in history, is the lack of colour in the photos of that time.
Here is a short movie with footage of Jews in Warsaw. It’s lovely and terribly sad all at once.
Such a cute video about Israeli religious and secular.
