It’s Fried Chicken Day

Posted: July 6th, 2017 | Author: | Filed under: T Writes | Tags: , | No Comments »

Does fried chicken need a day of observance? Apparently so, because TODAY IS IT.

According to Wikipedia, it’s unclear how this day originated and who or what entity started it. But it is the official date to celebrate this classic American dish.

Now just be careful you don’t eat a puppy instead!

You looking at me?

Pareidolia is the word that describes the way we see meaningful things in ordinary objects. Such as faces. Sinks especially bring out the pareidolia in me.

What would these sinks say, if they could talk? “Wash your hands!” of course.

Say cheese, quokka!

Quokkas are marsupials about the size of a house cat. Quokkas are natural smilers. Quokkas are not camera shy. Australians are cozying up to quokkas in record numbers lately for selfies. Turn that frown upside down down under and snap a quokka today!

When small is big

⌃Paedophryne amauensis is a species of frog from Papua New Guinea. It is the world’s smallest vertebrate.

⌃The Lilliputian Violet, found in the Peruvian Andes mountains, grows to be only one centimeter tall.

New York City’s Little Free Library may be the world’s smallest lending library. Designed by Venezuelan architects Marcelo Ertorteguy and Sara Valente, it is one of ten mini-libraries in the city.

 

⌃This is the view upon entering this single-person space. It already looks crowded!

It has what we want, though. Books! And the instructions couldn’t be simpler. This library for people on the go is definitely a case where big things have come from something small.
