How glorious is this?! Upcycling at its finest…
I have a couple bracelets made from the same stuff! yay

watching the actors for the new TMNT run around in giant mocap suits in public might be the funniest goddamn thing
look at this shit
Project HARP (High Altitude Research Project) was a joint initiative between the United States and Canada to research the use of ballistics to deliver objects into the upper atmosphere and beyond.
In lay terms, the project was established to create a cartoonishly large gun to shoot things into space. The sole fruit of this partnership, a massive toppled gun barrel, still remains on the Barbados test site.
Designed by mad ballistic engineer Gerald Bull, the gun itself was originally built from a 50 caliber naval cannon, like what might be seen on a battleship, and was later doubled to 100 caliber, making the gun too big for effective military application, but seemingly perfect for satellite delivery. Not-designed for delivering human subjects, the cannon fired smaller projectiles in a sabot that would protect the payload during the firing and would fall away as the satellite rose. At its apex, the gun was able to fire an object a staggering 112 miles into the sky, setting the 1963 world record for gun-launched altitude at 93 KM.
As the project continued, installing similar guns in further locations, the Barbados gun was abandoned in the late 1960s and left to rust on its original launch site. Looking more like a painted sewer pipe than a Godzilla-size gun barrel, the original Project HARP space gun can still be reached along the Barbados coast.
Not to be confused with the conspiracy factory that is Project HAARP (High Frequency Active Aural Research Program),
Grand Prismatic Spring
Located in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, the Grand Prismatic Spring is the largest natural hot spring found in the US. The spring has a scalding temperature of 160 °F (70 °C), a total depth of 160 feet and a diameter of 300 feet. The vivid, rainbow colors in the spring are the result of pigmented bacteria in the microbial mats that grow around the edges of the mineral-rich water.
When the tornado sirens went off around 2:15, the staff of the AgapeLand Learning Center, a day care facility, hustled some 15 children into two bathrooms, draping them with a protective covering and singing songs with them to keep them calm.
As the wind ripped the roof off one of the bathrooms, and debris rained down on the children, they remained calm, singing “You Are My Sunshine.”
Before diving in and beginning the experiment, I had to familiarize myself with the various furoshiki folding techniques that were out there. Naturally, I found myself on furoshiki.com/techniques/. There are plenty of other resources out there to learn these techniques which you can discover via a quick Google search, this is the one I went with. You may love this one, or love a different one. We even posted a great infographic up the last time we discussed furoshiki. It’s all totally up to you. Keep in mind, almost any fabric will work.
The most important thing is to research the different methods for folding/tying different shapes/weights/sizes of objects in their different carry methods/formats, that are best suited for the specific application that is presented at that moment. And then to remember them all. For example, different methods would be used to carry one honeydew melon than 1,000 kidney beans. It is important to understand that your brain now becomes your backpack, and your messenger bag, and your tote, and more. The fabric is just fabric, a vehicle for the carry.
