Meet wastl the sloth, star of the natural science collection of the state of bavaria, here lovingly held by director gerhard haszprunar. caught in the rainforest in the early 19 century by a hurried scientist, his body was shipped home in munich to preparators that had no idea of what a sloth looked or lived like. that’s why they stuffed him in a threatening grizzly-like posture… #wastl #funwithscience #taxidermy

Quoting @disegnodaily -- an emoji for 2018, courtesy of the wonderful @sebastianbergne, who responded to disegno’s brief with an emoji that reflects on a societal tendency to act without proper consideration of the likely effects. "in so many aspects of life today we seem to be making mistakes because we take action with too little consideration of the consequences," says bergne. "whether talking about pollution, global warming, electing rogue leaders or brexit this visualisation of the popular idiom 'shooting yourself in the foot' seems likely to be useful in 2018." read the full story on #sebastianbergne #emoji #shootingyourselfinthefoot

No matter what washington does, says, ignores, or destroys, ny, la, sf, chicago, atlanta, alabama--dozens of states, hundreds of cities, millions of americans--stand with the world. i wish you a resolute, hopeful, and constructive 2018. (the great beanie is by kerby jean-raymond of pyer moss (2016)).
