Elderly Man Is Happy With Graffiti On His Door.

Thursday, 1 December 2016

door-1

A company in Amsterdam [True Doors] came up with a clever idea: a way for seniors in retirement facilities to personalize their own otherwise bland entrances.

door-2

This works on several levels: The resident can have some fun, it’s easier for those with failing eyesight to find their apartments, and relatives don’t have to follow the room numbers to visit their elders.

door-3

The stock designs start at €9o + €24 shipping, which equates to about $124 USD, but if you spread the cost out over several years it’s inexpensive.

Papa Strutts would have chosen a custom design that looked something like this:

Wright Brothers’ Early Spacewalk Test (ca. 1915)

Monday, 28 November 2016

1915-spacewalktest

Using a pressurized helium-vapor suit, Orville and Wilbur Wright sought to solve future problems of space exploration, and their younger step brother “Nottle” volunteered to be the test pilot. Once afloat, the tethers snapped, and he sailed over the horizon. He landed in France and enlisted with the 43rd Balloon Company, serving as a practice target in WWI. Out of eleven volunteers, he was never shot down by the Boche once, and he survived the friendly fire, too.

Okay, maybe it wasn’t a spacewalk test, and maybe it had nothing at all to do with WWI, but maybe it did, depending on how you look at it.
