Blow My Mindsday: June 25, 2014

Each Wednesday, I post some of my favorite can’t-miss links, images, and otherwise mindblowing goodies from across the web.

Photography team Floto+Warner created a new series “Clourant,” which captures colorful liquid splashes at a speed of 1/3,500th of a second.

They couple says, “Colourant is a series of events that pass you by as an imperceptible flash. A fleeting moment, that blocks and obscures the landscape, a momentary graffiti of air and space. Creating shapes of nature not experienced by the human eye, these short-lived anomalies are frozen for us to view at 3500th of a second. Transforming the non-discernible and ephemeral to the eternal. The essence of photography—immortalize the transitory.” See and learn more about the series at Colossal: Colorful Liquid Splashes Captured at 1/3500th of a Second Look Like Floating Sculptures

I’m intrigued by this vacuum-insulated French press from Thermos. It’ll keep your coffee hot, and won’t break like the glass carafes. Considering for next time I bust a Bodum. 

So…should you really be drinking eight glasses of water a day? Valet takes a look at the adage and comes up with a new formula based on your specific needs.

I’m totally making this for dinner tonight. Extra Veggies = Extra Flavor: Stir-Fried Lo Mein With Charred Cabbage, Shiitake, and Chives

I actually do hope to read Piketty’s (surprisingly?) best-selling economics book Capital in the Twenty-First Century, but while I wait in line at the library, I’m appreciating Cory Doctorow’s I-read-this-so-you-don’t-have-to -style summary.
