Here’s a classic big city dilemma (sorry suburban folks): It’s late at night, the weather is bad, and you’re hungry. Your favorite restaurant is less than a mile away, but you don’t want to leave the house, and you don’t want to pay a $5 delivery fee — plus tip — for a $10 meal.

So, what do you do?

Back in the old days, you would have braved the elements — or learned to plan ahead. But those days are coming to an end, at least in Washington, D.C.

A fleet of about 20 autonomous, knee-high robots recently has appeared on the sidewalks of the nation’s capital, and they’re out to revolutionize hyper-local delivery in big cities. Their mission? Bring takeout food from restaurants to hungry customers at home — while keeping the delivery cost to around a dollar.

Villain Tip #15

Make sure you contribute to your evil group whatever you do best. Some people are really good at fighting, so they do a bunch of missions. Some people can hack so they stay at the computer all day. Some are just really good at picking out budget-worthy snacks.

Why can I contribute?

There is a reason I work alone.

Summary:  To prevent video of what happened at South Glade Mission Church from going viral, Eggsy lets himself be blackmailed into stealing from Harry. He should have known, though, that Harry would find out. Now they have to work together to stop the blackmailer, even as they are privately falling apart.

Chapter 10:  “You’re persistent, old man,” Charlie says. “I’ll give you that.” He taps the tabletop, his fingers inches from the USB drive. “But come on. I was never going to give it to you.”

Chapter 11/Epilogue:  And he also knows this: Eggsy’s love for him, his love for Eggsy, doesn’t make him helpless. It never did. That kind of love can only make a person stronger.

Thank you so much to everyone who has read this, who has taken the time to leave a kudos or comment, who liked or reblogged these posts. I appreciate you all so much. <3

This is one of the first photos I ever took while on assignment outside the US. Even after all these years (more than 30!) I still love it. It was taken in an extremely remote Tonga village in the Zambezi River Valley of Zimbabwe. Outsiders were rare, and these boys were curious, bold and brave! I was there during a time of severe drought. Water sources dried up, cattle were dying, and the people were eating grass to survive. I accompanied a humanitarian aid mission, bringing much needed food and supples to the desperate villagers.

Turning Food Into Something Unexpected with @seriousdesign

To see more of Matija’s unusual mashups, follow @seriousdesign on Instagram.

It was the steak flip-flops that gave Matija Erceg (@seriousdesign) the idea. He was a little bored with his day-to-day job as a web developer, and when he saw a picture of a pair of flip-flops with soles made out of steak, inspiration struck him.

“I imagined what it would be like to wear them,” says Matija, who is based in Vancouver, Canada. “I wanted to evoke the same reaction of delightful disgust in other people, so I set off on a mission to pair food and everyday objects into ‘serious designs.’”

Matija started with some shrimp headphones. “Imagine the feeling of putting them into your ears, as you would earbuds,” he says. “I think that seeing them on the ends of the wires helps imagine the sensation.”

From an iPod made of cheese to a banana gun, there is seemingly no end to Matija’s tweaks. So far he has confined himself to Photoshop, but says he’s considering making real sculptures. “I’ve been studying the art of fake food, like you see in some restaurant window displays,” he says. “Maybe a trip to Japan is in the cards?”

Is at Mission BBQ
Me: So how do you feel about this place’s free samples?
Date: I kind of prefer Olive Garden’s breadsticks.
Me: *shoving Moist Brisket into my purse* I’m sorry… I have to go… Right now. *steals bottle of Texas Twang* bYE¡
