These are a few of my favorite things
This week's three things that caught my eye.
If you like them, share it.
1. Simpsons Scenes
My new favorite Instagram Account, Scenic Simpsons, created by an anonymous curator.
I am a sucker for beauty, I happen to think it is one of the most important parts of what makes us human, and often beauty hides in strange places.
Like in the background scenes, close ups, or interior scenes in the Simpsons.
What the curator of the account does, is look for beautifully mapped out scenes in each episode (seasons 1-10 aka the Simpsons Golden age), a close up of the phone, Lisa's empty room for example, and posts it on Instagram
Go have a look.
2. Cyborg Dragonflies
Now inserting electronics into insects is not new, but this dragonfly and the way it is engineered is pretty impressive.
It could be used for “guided pollination, payload delivery, reconnaissance and even precision medicine and diagnostics,” Draper Labs suggested.
“DragonflEye is a totally new kind of micro-aerial vehicle that’s smaller, lighter and stealthier than anything else that’s manmade,” said the project’s principal investigator, Jesse J. Wheeler, in a Draper news release.

2. Getting a grip
Discovered this great article on AoM, on developing your grip using old school strong man techniques.
Now, besides being a cool party trick and being able to open any jar, getting physically strong, in my opinion, makes you mentally strong too.
The ability to keep gripping is useful across the board, whether you are hanging from a literal cliff, or hanging from a cliff at work.
Also, the way politics are at the moment, it might do us all well to get our Katniss Everdeen-ness up. ;) (or Sarah Connor-ness for the 80's kids among us)
Go check it out (the pick up a chair one is quite cool)
