The Telerfontornet connecting over 5 000 phone lines in Stockholm. 1890
A 19th Century Telephone Network Covered Stockholm in Thousands of Phone Lines. In Stockholm, Sweden, the central telephone exchange was the Telefontornet, a giant tower designed around 1890 that connected some 5,000 lines which sprawled in every direction across the city. Just by looking at historical photos it’s easy to recognize the absurdity and danger of the whole endeavor, especially during the winter months. Everything that could possibly go wrong did.

“It’s just a regular normal movie,” a bewildered sheriff’s deputy tells the heroine of Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter. He’s trying to explain to Kumiko (Rinko Kikuchi) that the quest upon which she’s set herself—to find the treasure that a bloodied, battered Steve Buscemi buries in Fargo—makes no sense, because Fargo...

Alumni Film Kumiko The Treasure Hunter
Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter. A depressed Japanese woman travels to Minnesota in search of the treasure Steve Buscemi buried in Fargo.
The poster for “Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter” shows the film’s heroine in a Little Red Riding Hood coat, which rightly suggests the movie has something in common with folk and fairy tales. Kumiko (Rinko Kikuchi), an office worker, is deeply withdrawn and resentful, maybe bordering on an implosion. At home, she’s able to make out images of a man in a snowy landscape burying a case full of cash by a fence. [...] there are other surreal and absurd Herzogian twists here. When she reaches Minnesota, she fends off the cold by wrapping herself in a colorful quilt, which makes her resemble a combination of bag lady and queen. The movie pokes some fun at Americans with the character of a befuddled deputy sheriff (David Zellner, who also directed the film), whose attempts to help Kumiko are genuine, if clumsy. Like the audience, he has to decide if Kumiko is an unhinged woman on a daft mission or a brave soul who has discarded convention to pursue something wondrous. [...] the filmmakers — the director and his brother Nathan Zellner, who share the screenwriting credit — are more interested in the ironies, ambiguities and even the contradictions of dreams and fantastic tales. In the title role, Kikuchi is impressive, easily handling Kumiko’s comic and more
Daniel Mendelsohn’s essay on Sappho has been haunting me since I read last week’s New Yorker. First there’s the history of her poems. We all know these survive today in a few fragments, but to think there were once as many as ten thousand lines—and that these were in wide circulation for

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL BORN IN 1930's, 1940's, 50's, 60's, 70's and Early 80's !!! First, you survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they carried us. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a tin, and didn't get tested for diabetes. Then after that trauma, your baby cots were covered with bright colored lead-based paints. You had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when you rode your bikes, you had no helmets, not to mention, the risks you took hitchhiking .. As children, you would ride in cars with no seat belts or air bags. Riding in the back of a van - loose - was always great fun. You drank water from the garden hosepipe and NOT from a bottle. You shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and NO ONE actually died from this. You ate cakes, white bread and real butter and drank pop with sugar in it, but you weren't overweight because...... YOU WERE ALWAYS OUTSIDE PLAYING!! You would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on. No one was able to reach you all day. And you were OK. You would spend hours building your go-carts out of scraps and then ride down the hill, only to find out you forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a few times, you learned to solve the problem . You did not have Playstations, Nintendo's, X-boxes, no video games at all, no 99 channels on cable, no video tape movies, no surround sound, no mobile phones, no text messaging, no personal computers, no Internet or Internet chat rooms..........YOU HAD FRIENDS and you went outside and found them! You fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no lawsuits from these accidents you played with worms(well most boys did) and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever. You made up games with sticks and tennis balls and although you were told it would happen, you did not poke out any eyes. You rode bikes or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just yelled for them! Local teams had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn't had to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!! The idea of a parent bailing you out if you broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law! This generation has produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever! The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas. You had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and you learned HOW TO DEAL WITH IT ALL! And YOU are one of them! CONGRATULATIONS! You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids, before the lawyers and the government regulated our lives for our own good. And while you are at it, forward it to your kids so they will know how brave their parents were. (Via +95.7 KJR Seattle ) #lifelessons #summersolstice #kids #funny #humoroftheday #summer #weekend

Cute baby swimming
Fascinating and funny photos of babies in a remarkable series called "Underwater Babies," from photographer Seth Casteel, we see infants learning survival swimming in case they ever fall into water. After undergoing this training, these babies are able to swim and stay afloat with their faces out of the water.
We love photographer Seth Casteel's 'Underwater Babies' - which as a bonus, helps promote water safety for kids!
