Crate of Curios part 57

The ‘warmer outside than inside’ season is in full swing and the weather forecast promises a brief period of ‘cold outside-cold inside’ next week and then back to ‘warmer outside than inside’, which means than most likely we’re not gonna see any heating before December. On one hand, with the current gas prices it’s good news for the wallet, on the other I’m kind of over having the place constantly full of drying laundry as it simply Does.Not.Dry. Anyhow… moving on to more pleasant things – it’s time to open this week’s Crate.

  1. “Nothing is a mistake. There’s no win and no fail. There’s only make.” – Meet Corita Kent, the “Pop Art Nun” whose silkscreen posters were among the defining pop art of the 1960’s and 70’s.

2. Corita Kent also created 10 rules for her Immaculate Heart College students. They are worth keeping in mind. (no affiliate connection)

3. Apparently there’s only one main rule for making good decisions. Action beats inaction.

4. The reason why the kitchens in our apartments look like they do hails from… The Frankfurt Kitchen and the first certified woman architect Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky.

5. Want to know the true size of any country in relation to others? Check out this nifty site.

6. And to finish off for this week, here’s a little robot comic by Puddlemunch.

And that’s it for this time. Happy reading and until next week!
