I've been wanting to buy this, unusual candies when I first saw them in BUST years ago. So I finally did. I didn't take the photo ...
The candies unfortunately were half printed on, about 20 or so out of 50 - yes I counted. I don't order that many things online - so I contacted their help dept and they quickly sent another tin. Same issue. But hell - at least they were cool about it. So, I'm not going to complain. I took them to work and everyone thought they were funny, and that after all was the whole point. They not only have candies but shirts, posters, and calendars. Check out Despair.
Here is some other funny stuff from their website....

Yahoo - 2 accounts - One for Flicker - from years ago, you had to have a yahoo account to sign up & one for junk mail.
Gmail -2 accounts - people were telling me it's more professional so I got it for my business class - why I got the other one I forget.
Hotmail - 2 accounts - one I've had this for YEARS and can't get rid of it, the other b/c I was getting too much junk mail - so I have one that I use soely just for friends.
This doesn't include the 2 work emails.AND doesn't include the emails I get from the multiple job sites or freelance sites I've signed up for over the years. It's crazy.
So, whenever a service HOTMAIL wants to make something user friendly and easier to use - I'm cool with that. According to techradar ...
" The Hotmail name has a heritage. It was one of the earliest webmail services and according to Brian Hall, general manager of what's still called the Windows Live team, it's still "the world's largest webmail service". So why do away with the name?-- Outlook has a lot of brand recognition too, of course and Hall told TechRadar "we took the best of each of those, but we also recognized that we needed to move on to do something new". That's not just the "modern, clean design" that's intended to work well on smartphones and tablets, but tools to help with the two biggest categories of email we get these days"
Like gmail - you can combine multiple emails into one log in - it's still two different emails but one login. One less thing to remember. Plus I've been using Outlook for years @ work so ok - good to go.
This site explains how to combine the new feature of Hotmail to Outlook - and combining your multiple hotmail accounts to one. It's a very simple tutorial and well worth the 5 minutes.
at any rate, whats my point - i have none - just sharing.

Library of Congress has a Flicker site, it's lovely.
According the Wiki - b/c apprentaly I read them alot and reference them, but I double checked this is accurate..
"The Library makes millions of digital objects, comprising tens of petabytes, available at its American Memory site. American Memory is a source for public domain image resources, as well as audio, video, and archived Web content. Nearly all of the lists of holdings, the catalogs of the library, can be consulted directly on its web site. Librarians all over the world consult these catalogs, through the Web or through other media better suited to their needs, when they need to catalog for their collection a book published in the United States. They use the Library of Congress Control Number to make sure of the exact identity of the book."
The important aspect here is PUBLIC DOMAIN - that means there is no restriction for use of these images. Either they were taken so long ago the right has run out or like most images from the Library of Congress - these images were funded by tax payers. So we paid for it, so download those images and enjoy them!
I love this image of the baseball player. It's literally beautiful! (to me)

My friends got married here, and before the ceremony I went around and took pictures. Definitely worth the visit.
The Garfield Park Conservatory in Chicago, Illinois is one of the largest and most stunning conservatories in the nation. Often referred to as "landscape art under glass," the Garfield Park Conservatory occupies approximately 4.5 acres inside
and out, and includes cold frames and propagating where thousands of plants are grown each year for displays in City parks and spaces. Garfield Park Conservatory is located in Garfield Park — an 184-acre site located on Chicago's redeveloping Westside designed as a pleasure ground by William LeBaron Jenney — and is the oldest of the three great original Westside parks (Humboldt, Garfield, and Douglas).
