Thank you to Curiosity Counts for the above video that effectively debunks everything you ever heard in Middle School. Think the Great Wall is visible from space? Think again! How about gum taking 7 years to transit through the digestive system? Not so long. Watch these 10 common schoolyard myths get debunked. Lots of fun, except for the last myth (you’ll find out why!).
Photographer Kelsey Wynns was curious to know what the dog park looked like from the point of view of his great dane Bishop. So one day he fastened a GoPro camera to Bishop’s harness to capture the action from the canine perspective. The above video shows the dog park like we humans have never seen it, and frankly it looks pretty great.
Speaking of dog parks, check out “Dog Park”, an entry in Dorito’s annual “Crash the Superbowl” ad contest. I love it! You can vote for your favorite ads here.

Thank you to Matthieu Chereau (@mchereau) for telling me about “Ca dure une minute“
(It lasts one minute), directed by David Do Van Minh. These are a series of videos where peoples faces communicante silently for one minute straight. In a
minute a lot of things can happen.
I read about this on Gawker. When photographer Kevin Shea Adams found out that his East Village bodega was shutting down, he started to poke around the big brick building it was housed in, only to discover that upstairs was an abandoned movie theatre that had been used as a storeroom. The Hollywood Theatre shut its doors in 1959, but it still retained the beautiful
inlays, balconies and woodwork throughout the years. These photos almost look like old ruins– they’re beautiful and poetic and they remind us that there are hidden gems all around us. Check out the gallery of the Hollywood Theatre here.
Perhaps you’ve had a concert interrupted by a cell phone ringing (perhaps it was yours!), or maybe you shuddered when read about the now notorious iPhone marimba going off during the New York City Philharmonic’s Mahler’s 9th symphony– whatever the case, ringtones and classical music do not mix. Except when they do. Witness violinist Lukáš Kmiťs graceful reaction to the Nokia ringtone during his concert at the Presow Orthodox Synagogue in Slovakia.
