A Curious Eye

A Curious Eye

My name's Ben. I'm a 22 year-old recent grad living in Seattle. I've been told my gayness is only matched by my enthusiasm.
I post my favorite news from all around the web.
Topics you'll see:
Queer - Liberalism - Activism - Student Issues- Public Transportation - Peace - Environmentalism - Politics - Law - Atheism - Vegetarianism - Feminism - Sex Positivity - Philosophy.

  • Asexual: My anaconda don't.
  • Grey-A: My anaconda don't always, but when it does, it do.
  • Demisexual: My anaconda may once my anaconda gets to know you better.

BICYCLE ACTIVISM:  Latvian activists from a branch of the bicycle advocacy group Let’s Bike it recently created a visual reminder of the space taken by cars on a typical road. To this end, the group fabricated bamboo skeletons shaped like actual cars and mounted them on their bikes. The activists then cycled around the streets of Riga for several hours to highlight the absurdity of using a large car to move a single person. The stunt was organized as part of European Mobility Week, an ongoing campaign that explores sustainable urban mobility around Europe.

Cattle blood is so largely wasted that architect Jack Munro decided to make something eco-friendly out of it and created ‘Blood Bricks.’ He mixed cow blood with water and sand and baked it into a waterproof brick. It worked so well, he believes they could replace mud bricks in areas that have dry climates.  Source

The quietest place on Earth is an acoustics and architecture test facility in Minnesota. The -9 decibel level is overwhelming because you can easily hear your own heartbeat, breathing, and stomach gurgles. Most people can’t last 20 minutes and are very confused when they leave.   Source
