google center


The white star on a red field is the only hint reminding you that the old Zürich building, right next to the Google offices, closed its doors exactly twenty years ago as the Hürlimann brewery, to open again as an expensive spa center seven years later. This is the only outside sign, right, because once inside you’ll find a chic collection of vintage tin plate signs displaying more than 150 years of Swiss brewmaking. Many of these names might still be in use, but most just as Hürlimann, they are today just soulless labels on industrial brews. Hürlimann was swallowed by Carlsberg (via Feldschlösschen) and its deserted brewery, because of its rich mineral water source, was transformed into this posh destination, with inflated entry prices because Switzerland, where not even such basic fun activities like photography or sex are allowed. What else to do then, other than having a Swiss beer? The Locher brewery tries bravely lots of recipes with various degrees of success and this Alpstein Bock is not exactly their best product. More than stingy with a raisin-like thickness, caramel and well, something bitter too, it just misses the spot… without being a bad one, actually.

also i get the sense that a lot of people especially younger people on here really think that pride and gay bars are the only kinds of lgbt spaces that exist in this world and i promise you guys that’s not true

i understand any kind of (irl) lgbt space can be hard to come by if you live in a less urban area, but they often do exist; if you haven’t, try googling for community centers, support groups, student groups, and activist groups in your area and you might be pleasantly surprised. especially if it’s a town big enough to have a pride in the first place

  1. Daytona Beach 1957
  2. Einstein’s desk hours after his death
  3. Five pounds of fat compared to five pounds of muscle
  4. Enormous statue of Genghis Khan in Mongolia
  5. George Washington’s teeth
  6. Hitler’s office
  7. Inside one of Google’s data centers
  8. Mars in true color from the Curiosity Rover
  9. Michelangelo illustrated his grocery lists so that his illiterate servants would know what to buy him.
  10. Bavarian town of Nordlingen built in a 14 million year old meteor impact crater

okay so psa here because I see a lot of people taking pictures of wild baby deer:

If you see a baby deer out in the wild DON’T GO NEAR IT! ESPECIALLY IF IT’S ALONE! Mother deer leave their babies on purpose so that they can go and eat/do deer stuff without them. It isn’t a problem! By going near the babies (or god forbid touching them) you’re leaving your scent on them most of the time the mother will smell that and then abandon them. 90% of fawns in rescue centers don’t need to be there and only are because people have “rescued them” because they were “abandoned”. If you are concerned that a baby might actually be abandoned just keep an eye on it for a few days, in the event that you’re certain the mother hasn’t been coming back google an animal rescue center in your area and let them assess the situation.
