  1. Airbnb’s about page boasts about 600+ castle listings.


  2. The thing about notifications. There’s a very small difference in interaction between opening them (tap) and dismissing them (swipe up within a 50px height). So I just awkwardly look at them until they disappear so I can continue using my phone.

    Like the design of functional objects such as chairs or tables, it would seem new ideas for the humble door would be completely exhausted, and then along comes Austrian artist Klemens Torggler. This 4-panel entryway called the Evolution Door opens and closes in a surprisingly elegant way at the slightest touch, folding in on itself like pieces of paper. Torggler calls this system a “flip panel door” (Drehplattentür), and it’s almost more of a kinetic sculpture than functional door, but I would be happy to have one in every room of my house. And for those of you who envision a crushed finger or hands, he’s already solved that problem.

    Currently the door is meant as a prototype, an extension of his artistic practice where Vienna-based Torggler has been creating similar kinetic doors for many years, several of which are available through Artelier Contemporary.

  4. I wanna copy Kendrick Lamar’s outfit at the NBA All Star Weekend.

    All black outfit with bright red shoes. Yes, please.


  5. I know I live in Toronto and I love the Raptors (especially with the season they’re having now!) but I always find myself rooting for the Western teams. In the West, you can just feel the love of basketball from everyone. 


  6. TED-Ed video on the five major religions: Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam.

    If you never took a world religion course, this is a pretty good crash course. It also sheds light on some of the intertwined histories and cultures of the major religions.


  7. So get this:

    "Gibraltar" is the Spanish derivation of "Jebel Tariq" i.e., Mountain of Tariq after Umayyad General Tariq bin Ziyad.


    1. Carver: See, that’s why we can’t win.
    2. Hauk: Why not?
    3. Carver: They f*** up, they get beat. We f*** up, they give us pensions.

  8. I have a cage full of minions to demonstrate my management skills

    Ayman, ladies and gentlemen!


  9. If you’re a young person looking to work for a startup:

    1. Learn to ask for what you want. Charlie O’Donnell said this to me and it’s the best life advice I have ever received.

    2. Showcase your work. If you’re a developer, get a github account. If you’re a designer, start a blog or get a Behance portfolio. People need to see what you can do before agreeing to pay you money for it.
