    Every Frame a Painting - Chuck Jones;The Evolution of an Artist

    If you grew up watching Looney Tunes, then you know Chuck Jones, one of all-time masters of visual comedy. Normally I would talk about his ingenious framing and timing, but not today. Instead, I’d like to explore the evolution of his sensibilities as an artist.

    The School of Life - The Ruin of London

    London's skyline was for decades protected by regulations governing the heights of buildings in the historic core. These regulations have now been torn up, and an unprecedented tower building-boom has been unleashed. With questionable, even frightening results.

    Recreational users say ketamine lifts them out of their bodies, into other worlds. Many feel like they can fly or float. They can escape reality.

    This condescending description of the drug is an incredible contrast to Timothy Leary's famous admiration of it:

    Ketamine is a psychedelic ('mind revealing') drug because it can sometimes reveal aspects of how the mind constructs reality, personality, and a sense of meaning and sacredness, without necessarily inducing a toxic delirium. The term 'hallucinogen' is inadequate for describing increased empathy, insights, reliving old memories, religious ecstasy and many other effects (Grinspoon & Bakalar 1979), while the term 'entheogen' refers only to spiritual aspects. Timothy Leary observed that ketamine and Salvinorin A were the most profound psychedelic drugs in terms of the perceived depths of the experience (Leary & Sirius 1997) and The Essential Guide to Psychedelics described ketamine as the 'ultimate psychedelic journey' (Turner 1994).

    The World Without Water

    This 17th-century map of the Earth without its oceans is a highly technical, strangely religious oddity.

    The Death Of Bees Explained – Parasites, Poison and Humans

    Kurzgesagt designs some of my favorite educational videos. Check out their most recent one: In 2015 the bees are still dying in masses. Which at first seems not very important until you realize that one third of all food humans consume would disappear with them. Millions could starve. The foes bees face are truly horrifying – some are a direct consequence of human greed. We need to help our small buzzing friends or we will face extremely unpleasant consequences.

    Hah! This is great. I wonder if they are using kuler.

    Not going to lie, I'm a designer of sorts, but I'm not the best with palettes--so I've always used the eye-dropper tool on this image.

    Don't be so quick to call yourself a conspiracy theorist! It's called Market Segmentation. Related: Brand Tribalism. It's the status quo for any organization that reaches such a massive scale.

    I don't know about the Verge, though, haha--I'm with you in only ever having peripherally heard of the site.
