If you can go travel anywhere in the world without having to think about money or responsibilities, where would you go? Based on TripAdvisor‘s travelers and their millions of reviews, these next 10 cities are the “Travelers’ Choice Award-Winning Destinations” for 2015. Not only are they rich in culture and history, they are just too beautiful to not visit. To be honest, before reading this list I’ve never even consider going to some of these cities. Now I want to go to all of them! How many cities have you been to?
Mitchell Moffit and Gregory Brown from AsapSCIENCE explains science to us regular folks in an easy to understand way. In their latest post we learn all about our habit of caffeine consumption. They explain to us about our cortisol hormone and how it reduces the effectiveness of caffeine. Most people usually grab a cup of joe while on their morning commute to work. What they don’t know is that during that time frame, our cortisol production could be at its highest, thus the coffee you’re drinking won’t keep you awake longer than you want it to. But don’t be discouraged, we also learn the best times to be drinking caffeine, which is in between the peak cortisol productions. Keep these helpful tips in mind next time you start to feel a drop in alertness.
Also, the hand drawn animation is incredible! I wonder how long it takes them to do one segment.
We all know we shouldn’t, but we’ll still do it anyway: judging someone’s parenting skills. We obviously don’t know their story or what their struggles are, but we’ll wonder why did they do this? Or why didn’t they teach their kids that? That’s how I’m feeling with this next story. Why did this girl’s parents raised her like a Barbie doll?
Angelica Kenova, a 26-year-old model from Moscow, Russia, has been working on her drastic look her entire life. Eating a special diet and having her own exercise programme so that she can maintain her Barbie frame. According to the Daily Mail she said, “Growing up, my parents raised me like a princess and never let me go out, date boys or have the usual adult experiences. As a result, I am not fit for real life – I’m like a living doll.”
With a 20-inch waist and a 32E bust size, Angelica insists that she has never had plastic surgery because, “cosmetic work is only necessary when one has serious faults.” Her proportions are manipulated through a lot of intense training and exercises.
But, Angelica isn’t quite as wholesome or angelic as Barbie. Her parents encourage her to take more salacious photographs as a model. Which might be why her goal one day is to be a Playboy Playmate.
I’m not sure if this is her “rebelling” and telling the world about her story, or if this is all a big marketing ploy to get her noticed. Did her parents make her take selfies of herself all dolled up, too? Or how about wearing Barbie gear, while looking exactly like Barbie? It’s like a giant neon sign for those who couldn’t tell.
I, personally, find her very pretty, yet creepy all at the same time. And yes, I know there’s a lot of photoshopping here, still she looks creepily good. What are your thoughts?
It’s never too early or late to start planning your vacation!

The ever so creative and innovative cartoonist, Caldwell Tanner‘s new video for CollegeHumor hit close to home for me. I, too, LOVE food! So much so that I can’t believe none of these inventions have been created yet! I need all of these in my life. Even as I type this up, a piece of herb and garlic cream cheese bagel broke off and fell onto my keyboard…I’ll contribute to a Double Decker Keyboard Keeper Kickstarter campaign. Just take all my money now!
