Little Bits Of Light
Another Friday, another chance to dig into a sweet and sour pile of link noodles and slurp them up like your funny life depends on them. Grab your fork, grab your chopsticks, and dig in.
Wanna do me the biggest favor ever and also join a community of people that will love and support you no matter what? Cool, let’s do it. Hop behind the little paywall and join us!:
Here’s the down-low, fool turkeys:
World’s Greatest Places 2023 - I don’t know who’s making this list for Time Magazine, but there are some on there that I’m genuinely like, hmmm, really? Don’t call me judgmental dammit, there is a reason for it. Bozeman making the list, is simply because Yellowstone (the show not the park) is way more popular than it should be, and it’s confusing a lot of people into thinking that’s the way it is here. Note: It’s not.
Home Remedies And If They Work - Here are 15 popular home remedies that people swear by, and the actual science behind them. Everything from Warm Milk for sleepy times to aloe on burns. Surprising, the results of these. Dig it.
Blind Taste Test of Cinnamon Cereals - Here’s a me fact: The only dessert I eat, or care about, is a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. That’s it. Nothing compares. This dude did a blind taste test of almost all the cinnamon cereals on the market to see what truly takes top dog. The results won’t surprise you, but there are a few newcomers that could be fun to try.
We Are Fixing The Ozone! - Finally, good lord FINALLY, some good climate related news! It looks like all the CFC banning, all the collective world-cooperating, actually paid off. That deadly hole in the ozone we humans caused, welp, we’re fixing it, and it’s on track to be completely repaired everwhere but over Antarctica by 2040 and even over that icy continent by 2066. Basically, WE DID IT. This shows that if we would just pull our collective heads out of our collective asses, and set a global mandate to fix global warming too, we probably f’ing could. Dammit, let’s do so before it’s too late.
Best Cities for Street Photography - Lady G and I love nothing more than wandering a city with our 35mm lenses on and just soaking up street photography. These are the best cities on earth to do so. I think they made a massive omission by not putting Edinburgh on there, but that’s just me. See my photo below for proof.
Old Waters by Laura Gibson - I just dig the flavor of this weird little song. Maybe you will too.
Typewriter Series Silliness - More junk for you to peruse. Enjoy.Tiktok failed to load.
