Have Better Conversations

Time for another selection of five links I’ve found to be interesting recently. Interesting enough to spark good conversations between me and the people I’m forced to interact with each week. I’m sharing them with you to save you from having to tell your co-workers what you really got up to this weekend. Remember, they’re not necessarily new stories, just interesting stories.

1 – Check out these amazing illustrations showing the the evolution of various actors / characters / celebrities over time, all in handy GIF format. I love the Leonardo DiCaprio one.

2 – I retweeted this on Twitter, but might as well link it here as well. Someone has made a new line of lipsticks that look like penises.  That someone is  a company called Mushroom.

3 – Remember back in 2003 when everyone was getting tattoos in various Asian languages that were supposed to say things like “serenity”, “peace” and “eye of the tiger, thrill of the fight” only to later find out they actually said things like “egg fried rice” or “large cat box”? Well, westerners aren’t the only ones making fools of themselves. Turns out a lot of people in Asia are wearing slogan t-shirts that probably don’t quite mean what they think they mean…

4 – Whatever you do, don’t make fun of renowned author Dan Brown, who is 5’9″ and successful. From 2013 but still packs the lols.

5 – I usually put a video in these lists somewhere, so lets finish with 2cellos playing Thunderstruck
