Things I love Tuesday;


Another link list with internet goodies that I have discovered lately:

  1. A cool way to figure out how old your globe is! 
  2. Lina Ekstrand creates amazing illustrations. I first saw one of her illustrations on a freebie libresse-box, and the rest of her illustrations are equally wonderful! I love the pencil details, go look!
  3. 10 Myths Many Religious People Hold About Atheists, Debunked
  4. Google is hit by a sudden gravity. Especially fun if you actually move stuff around and search for stuff.
  5. I did not know about the problem with alcoholic meese (moose?) in Sweden. Now I do. One of them stole a swing set. Another one got stuck in a tree.
  6. If you have a lot of time left over, and just feel like getting smarter, you can read about linguistic relativity. Are our thoughts shaping our language, or the opposite way around? I came across Lera Boroditsky‘s papers, and especially this and this paper is super-interesting, it gives a lot of fancy examples about how different languages seem to shape our thoughts differently.
  7. The Oatmeal has a new wonderful comic about what we should be taught in our senior year of high school.
  8. Binka had a nice little entry about doodling a week or so ago I wanted to share further. TED-video in English is embedded.
  9. Needless to say, I am not exstatic about my philosophy classes, but these three minute philosophy lectures on Youtube made my week a tiny bit easier.
  10. My great Japanese teacher was on TV, talking about Japan after the earthquake and tsunami. (In Norwegian.)
  11. What is lacking in modern medicine is human touch. A nice TED-talk.
  12. Last, but not least, this documentary! (It is a couple of years old, but I just found it again.) It is about a woman who was born with a rare condition and have ended up with legs four times larger than those of the average person. This woman’s attitude towards life is just pure inspiration. She is so positive and such a go-getter (and really pretty too, but that is beyond the point), and I am just thinking – if she can have this sort of attitude towards life, then god damn – other people (including myself) should suck it up and be a bit more like her, the world would be a better place. Really inspiring lady!

    Hei! Tusen takk for link! 🙂 Ble så inspirert av panthone-krusene på de øverste bildene dine … Hvor er de fra? 🙂

      Pantone-krusene er fra en butikk nede i byen her, butikken heter Kamelone, om jeg ikke tar feil. Jeg har ikke egentlig vært inne i butikker på ukesvis, hver gang jeg er ferdig med alt jeg skal er butikkene allerede stengt. Men så kan jeg jo titte litt i vinduene på vei til andre avtaler 🙂

    you put always interesting links! Today reading your post i though about this stupid thing: one of my favourite book is Norvegian Wood (by Murakami Haruki) , you are from Norway and you’re end up living in Japan.

    • Sushi Bird says:

      Haha, that is true! I haven’t read that book yet, but I will have to read it next week for my Japanese class. Funny you should mention it.

      • michele/mmmhh says:

        You’ll love it, i’m sure, its a sad sad story but its as sad as beautiful, and you have the chance to read it in Japanese. They did a movie 2 years ago. the director its the same of the movies Cyclo,Green Papaya, i have the movie but i still don’t want to watch it…it seems so precious that when i’ll watch it i won’t be able to watch it again for the first time.

        • Sushi Bird says:

          I will def. put it on my list, I have to get more into movies and music again, I feel like I have fallen of the wagon completely! Thanks for reminding me, going on my list now!

    I was just in Paris a week ago and I bought one of the Pantone mugs as a silly designer souvenir. 😉 I <3 1505 Pumpkin Orange. 😉 Nice big size, too – it holds like 10oz of delicious colour-calibrated coffee.

    • Sushi Bird says:

      Ahh, I want some of them as well, but I just can not justify buying any items I don’t really need, I can not keep traveling back and forth with such amounts of luggage. But – I still kind of want one pretty mug. Everyone has a special coffee cup, don’t they?
