I’m the kind of person who likes to be by himself. To put a finer point on it, I’m the type of person who doesn’t find it painful to be alone. I find spending an hour or two every day running alone, not speaking to anyone, as well as four or five hours alone at my desk, to be neither difficult nor boring. I’ve had this tendency ever since I was young, when, given a choice, I much preferred reading books on my own or concentrating on listening to music over being with someone else. I could always think of things to do by myself.
Venus of Cupertino iPad docking station by designer Scott Eaton
The Venus of Cupertino is a sculptural docking station inspired by the curvaceous forms and symbolism of ancient Venus figurines - she is a fertility goddess for the technology age.
Each Venus is hand-cast in museum-quality resin and is a fully functional iPad docking station. Her hands gently guide any second or third generation iPad onto a charger inconspicuously located in her midriff. A USB cable emerges from a number of points under the sculpture and fits any standard USB port or Apple power adapter for syncing or charging. The charging cable and connector are fully changeable in order to future-proof the docking station against updates to Apple’s iPad connectors.
THIS. It’s probably the great iPad accessory ever! I want an iPad, just so I can get one…
Mmmmmmmm 80’s era Porsche 911 Turbo. Always does me good.
it’s kind of ridiculous that we have to work our asses off for 13 years in school just to work our asses off for another 2-8+ years in college just to work our asses off in a job that we probably don’t even like, when we were born on this earth without a choice and i for one certainly didn’t sign up for that
this is seriously all i fucking think about
I don’t buy it. There are a lot of people that don’t have the opportunity to finish 13 years of school, let alone pay the gigantic cost (including opportunity cost) of going on to university. Are they not relevant? You have choices everyday, just because you follow the privileged choices that you feel culturally pressured to make doesn’t mean you don’t have a choice. You feel the benefits of an education are worth the investment, or else you wouldn’t go. If “you’re parents make you” then you feel that there is value in satisfying their hopes for you, or else you wouldn’t go. If you work a job that you don’t like then you either: a. need it to survive or b. feel that it provides you with the material quality of life that you desire. If you “worked your ass off” in school AND had the opportunity to do the same at university, chances are that you don’t fall into group A. Please don’t start with your complaints about the consumerist culture that you feel trapped in. To claim that you, or the collective, privileged “we” you refer to, lacks any agency is a slap in the face to people that are actually structurally restricted in their agency, and is, frankly, bullshit. Take responsibility.
OH! So that’s what heaven looks like?
