Kevin Bauman - 100 Abandoned Houses
“100 seemed like a lot, although the number of abandoned houses in Detroit is more like 12,000. Encompassing an area of over 138 square miles, Detroit has enough room to hold the land mass of San Francisco, Boston, and Manhattan Island, yet the population has fallen from close to 2 million citizens, to most likely less than 800,000. With such a dramatic decline, the abandoned house problem is not likely to go away any time soon.”
Better make sure the doors are locked so the riff-raff don’t move in. /sarcasm
If Dr. Seuss Books Were Titled According to Their Subtexts
The truth care of T.S. Geisel.
T.S. Geisel started as a political cartoonist and eventually realized that honey is sweeter than vinegar, and began using his children’s stories to examine deep socio-political problems he saw in the world.
As kids it’s our responsibility to let the story infect our imaginations, and as adults it’s our responsibility to let the message infect our intellects.
On the surface these titles might seem a bit crazy, but in the words of Dr. Suess himself “being crazy isn’t enough.”
Whether these people know what the sign says or not, these photos highlight something crazy happening in the world right now.
The bombing in Boston has been a shock of anger and sadness for many in America, but from half-way across the world people can empathize. We forget that what happened on Monday happens constantly in other parts of the world, and that those far off people aren’t too different from us when it comes to understanding pain.
Whether its empathy or a gimmick, I appreciate how these photos bridge a gap that many people didn’t even know existed.
Instead of pointing out how spoiled we are in America for not knowing the daily fear of bombings, we should strive to help make everywhere as spoiled as us.
What’s great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same thing as the poorest. You can be watching tv and see Coca-Cola, and you can know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than then one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it. - Andy Warhol
Andy quit giving them ideas or they might ruin the American Dream. #message

theniftyfifties: Halloween themed Reddi Wip cream advertisement, 1958.
This is some of the most amazing and disturbing footage I’ve ever seen. The amount of heart and terror is fairly unsettling, and I warn you that in spite of the absence of any blood or human violence this clip is hard to watch.
The orca Kasatka at SeaWorld San Diego recently dragged her trainer Ken Peters under water multiple times as Ken maintained his calm and life as best he could. The care this animal took to both scare and preserve the frail life it held in its jaws is as admirable as the trainer’s efforts to subdue the gentle giant. We forget that our life began simple and single-celled just like the killer whale’s own evolution. But we can learn a lot from the tender mercy that both creatures displayed in this video.
This is the single most attractive gif set that has ever been gif-ed.
I hope I can keep this up, but I’ll start a new series highlighting the intelligent and serendipitous tips and knowledge bombs found on Yahoo! Answers.
Remember: Romney won’t release his tax returns because he’s done everything legally and morally correct and “you people” should just trust him.

This is the single most flattering compliment my art has ever gotten.
