Pictures from a special tour of a denim mill
These beautiful pictures from the 3sixteen guys make me really regret skipping Kojima (out of sheer laziness, no less) on my trip to Japan a few weeks ago.

…stress releases hormones such as catecholamines and glucocorticoids in response to short-term situations of danger or trauma. It’s the brain’s natural threat response mode. The problem with prolonged or chronic stress is that those stress hormones then stick around and start meddling with the brain’s wiring […] causing declines in processing language and math in addition to weakening working memory and attention regulation. At the same time, those stress hormones strengthen the fear conditioning and emotional memory connections in the amygdala.

A site called imnotwordy.com

  1. I’ll discover an extremely well-curated site (like the one above).
  2. Then I will click on an individual image and go “That is very nice, who made/shot/did that?”
  3. I will get served up a larger image and then furiously scout around for a link or attribution.
  4. Inevitably, I will find none.
  5. Disappointment will lead to dismay.
  6. Being a boy of the 90s, I naturally will yearn for the gentlemanly link reciprocity of the days gone by.
  7. I will close my browser in a huff and proceed find someone to moan to about (4) and (6).
  8. [GOTO 1]

…if you’re in a grumpy mood, but turn on the warmth while talking to a stranger, you’ll start actually feeling a lot better. Interacting with strangers is a great way to lift your mood.

Nice looking phone
There are two ways to get your hands on the quite lovely looking OnePlus One phone. The first is to find someone who has got one and ask them for an invite. The other way is to win contests organized by OnePlus on social media.

If a phone manufacturer is going to make it this hard to buy their phone, they may be trying to mask manufacturing difficulties. If that’s not the case and they’re trying to be gimmicky and shit, they can honestly go fuck themselves.
