Wouldn't it be better if All New York subways had indicator boards?

betterific.com — It all started with bed sheets. We were making our beds (like all gentlemen should) and struggled when it came time for the fitted bed sheet. Which side is length, and which is width, we wondered. And then the light bulb went off. Wouldn't it be better if ...

jonathanoatis.tumblr.com — The incomparable A. J. Liebling wrote once that there are three kinds of journalists: the reporter, who says what he's seen; the interpretive reporter, who says what he thinks is the meaning of what he's seen; and the expert, who says what he thinks is the meaning of what he hasn't seen.

I have met the future, and it is Citi Bike

jonathanoatis.tumblr.com — I started using the new Citi Bike bike-sharing service since before it officially started last Sunday - and I am an enthusiastic convert.

jonathanoatis.tumblr.com — tekena: A lion and a miniature sausage dog have formed an unlikely friendship after the little dog took the king of the jungle under his wing as a cub. Bonedigger, a five-year old male lion, and Milo, a seven-year old Dachshund, are so close that Milo helps the lion clean his teeth after dinner.
