Emojier er ikke akkurat noe nytt, men at det var så gammelt…

Smithsonian rapporterer fra arkeologiske utgravinger på grensen mellom Syria og Tyrkia. Hetiittene var tidlig ute med hippe mugger, viser det seg. Muggene ble brukt til å drikke en søt drikk kalt sherbet.

Ser det for meg: «Kjøp kule sherbet-krus til kidza på Hattusas bazaar! Superb kvalitet som varer lengre enn både deg og hele din sivilisasjon!»

The best way to read a book is very slowly

By keeping a book in one location, you form a relationship between the book, yourself, and the room where you read it. Via Quartz:

By keeping your book in one location each time, you free yourself from the distractions of a commute or the pounding waves of a beach. As a result, a strange new relationship forms, between you, the voice of the book, and the room. Your ritual creates a singular association between the book and a quiet, private place, which in turn gives your relationship a new dimension. Your friend never leaves your room, has never seen you with makeup on, or shoes.
