@vine fruit Just watched it too - amazing. Will be watching out for him.
Lordy. If my children turn out like these kids they will be doing selfies at their own funeral - if that's possible. Although with this level of self-obsession it probably is.
This was really interesting and thoughtful as well as thought-provoking. I'm not religious at all and I usually can't find any point of contact with religiousness. Barring a joyous hymn or a Stevie Wonder song (he will often relate his joy back to god and I love Stevie so much I'll try to go there with him) I really don't get it. But this is very thoughtful and engaging and I'm trying to see where I overlap. I'm particularly trying to understand what, in my life, fills the space where he has god. His god helps him navigate the puzzles of life and I have some navigational aids too - but I can't express them as well as he does. Thank you.
Actually why don't we put up an alternative series of people staring at the camera and demanding "What's your excuse?" Starting with Stephen Hawking. I mean what is my excuse for not being an astrophysicist? It's simply not good enough. Then we could do Marie Curie, Hilary Mantel and some other people who are awesome for reasons other than their abs.
What's your excuse for not being me? I mean you are not me and it's clearly ridiculous for you not to be me. What are you thinking? Get with the program and in 45 short years and a complete DNA transplant, you could be me, loser. Sorry that you'd have to lose all the things you like about being you but you know, no pain, no gain.
@chickpeas akimbo oh that's exactly what I thought. That looks like 20s finger waves - and I would love to have that look but it would not work for me. Very interesting project. I would like to try some of those styles.
Yes those Mother Jones comments are depressing but not at all surprising. Here are the options: women didn't invent the electric light because they are not good at inventing because of their DNA or women didn't invent the electric light because they have been slaves to biology for millennia and slaves to the patriarchy which denied them education, property rights and a public voice for centuries and is still trying to deny the latter even in advanced economies to this very day. Hmmm. Which one?
@cee I will add to this the horrible Noho for the bit north of Soho which has for decades been perfectly properly named Fitzrovia. It's embarrassing. I know - let's call Brixton Brooklyn. It will really be cool.
Love this and love "stealth Commonwealther". Can we pretend to non Commonwealthers that the Commonwealth really is a THING and we all do stuff together and it's totally cool. They wouldn't know that it's not and to be honest, even other Commonwealthers might think "oh, are some of them hanging out together and being Commonwealthers in a fun way, without me?" Also love Roland the BBC presenter.
34 - but all the women were desiring or contemplative. Only the men were allowed to be angry or hostile or suspicious. Also only the men were allowed to be anything other than 24 with plucked eyebrows. I've just seen on the comments that these are images from movies - which explains a lot. Women in films are only allowed to be desirous and 24. Men can be anything.
