How to survive a plunge from a waterfall

You know when you’re going over a waterfall and there’s no way to avoid it? Life throws challenges at you.

That’s why this tutorial on diving from a waterfall — a real one, not the metaphor for life’s hurdles — will come handy.

Oddly enough, the figure in the how-to image looks exactly like Harrison Ford and this epic dive from The Fugitive.

Below is the classic scene I’m referencing. PS. If you’re curious about how to treat a black eye, check out this diagram.

The Beatles never look up

What if the four distracted Beatles never looked up during the Abbey Road album shoot?

This cartoon presents a funny, modern-day interpretation of the iconic The Beatles Abbey Road album cover. The only thing missing, besides Paul McCartney’s shoes, is the Abbey Road zebra-crossing. Chances are the driver also works for Uber.

Book review bingo

When it comes to book reviews, authors have to take the good with the bad.

But writer Paraic O’Donnell has created a bingo of book reviews all cliche and positive in nature. 

Needless to say, I’d love to see an indifferent version. But maybe that’s what the FREE SPACE is for.

Tsundoku 📚

Tsundoku is a Japanese word for collecting reading materials like books without ever reading them.

We thought the Kindle may have resolved the hoarding problem, but even that device can become bloated.

Physical or digital, the same rules apply: we often purchase books and forget about them. Perhaps surrounding ourselves with books isn’t a bad thing, but showcasing the ones we actually like could be life-changing.

“Imagine what it would be like to have a bookshelf filled only with books that you really love. Isn’t that image spellbinding? For someone who loves books, what greater happiness could there be?”
