[Please take note that the commentary is just for fun. Bunch of sarcasm. Don’t take it too seriously. I am getting tired of these outfits, though.]
1. The classic Bikini Armor. If you’re lucky you might get an actual shoulder-pad! If the designers even bother doing something more than…
I recently received an email from an anonymous fan sharing how she pulled a Hawkeye Initiative themed prank on her CEO to illustrate a problem with some artwork.
My personal compliments to her and her accomplice on a mission well done; they perfectly took the concept of The Hawkeye Initiative one…

If grandmothers around the world had a rallying cry, it would probably sound something like “You need to eat!”
Photographer Gabriele Galimberti’s grandmother said something similar to him before one of his many globetrotting work trips. To ensure he had at least one good meal, she prepared for him a dish of ravioli before he departed on one of his adventures.
“In that occasion I said to my grandma ‘You know, Grandma, there are many other grandmas around the world and most of them are really good cooks,” Galimberti wrote via email. “I’m going to meet them and ask them to cook for me so I can show you that you don’t have to be worried for me and the food that I will eat!’ This is the way my project was born!”
The project, “Delicatessen With Love”, took Galimberti to 58 countries where he photographed grandmothers with both the ingredients and finished signature dishes.
He acted as photographer and stylist during each shoot with the grandmothers, taking a portrait of both the women and the food they made for him.

Actually, screw it. I feel like handing out some wisdom. I doubt 90’s TRiPPY would have listened or taken my advice but i’ll tell you younger guys a bunch of things regardless in the hope it might sink in somehow. The actual truth is though- the only way you ever learn things is to experience it yourself. Then you’ll be the one looking back on yourself.
1. Life might seem terrible but it could be a whole lot worse. The majority of things are fixable - and if not, then the thing that IS changable is how you deal with problems and issues emotionally.
2. Life isn’t a competition.
3. Time changes everything. Things that are a big deal today you’ll have problems even remembering tommorow- so dont be an idiot. Look after yourself.
4. Learn to put things in order of importance- that way not everything seems unachievable or terrible.
5. Emo music makes you an emo. Listen to some happy shit instead.
6. If you want something get off your arse and try to make it happen instead of whining about it. or it will never happen .
7. Keep personal matters personal.
8. Don’t bitch about people you’ve never met in real life offline. Online personas are very very different things.
9. Don’t be afraid to approach people if you have something nice or good to say, that person might really need it.
10. Online you will change friend groups in the exact same way you do in highschool. Dont feel guilty about it. Everyone finds their own path. The cool people will stick around regardless of history.
11. Treat others how you expect to be treated.
12. The second you quit being selfish and only doing things for personal gain is the second you really start opening doors and changing things for the better.
13. Apreciate what you have.
14. Have many dreams because when you achieve a dream you’ll start to grow spoiled and bored. Everyone needs something impossible to chase that can never be achieved. It keeps you fueled.
15. Don’t be afraid to be hurt or make mistakes because it makes you stronger.
16. Making a bad choice is better than making no choice at all.
17. Sitting at the pc all day -will- mess up your health.
18. Arguing on the internet is absolutely pointless.
19. Nothing will ever make IE cool. ever.
I think the main thing to remember is that we are all running out of time. So try to make everything you choose to do, count.
Tottenham Hotspur’s new centre back
1 Can white frosting
1 Box Red Velvet Cake Mix
2 cups water
1 cup light corn syrup
3 1/2 cups white sugar
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 cup water, or more as needed
15 drops red food coloring
3 drops blue food coloring
Prepare Red Velvet Cake Mix According to box, line cupcake tins with paper cupcake liners.
Divide cake batter between lined cupcake tins.
Bake according to box instructions. Let cool and frost cupcakes with white frosting.
Make the sugar glass. Mix 2 cups water, 1 cup corn syrup, white sugar, and cream of tartar in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Use a candy thermometer and boil sugar syrup until temperature reaches 300 degrees (hard ball), stirring constantly. The mixture will thicken as water evaporates. When sugar reaches 300 degrees, quickly pour onto a metal baking pan. Cool until completely hardened. Break into “shards” using a meat mallet.
Make the edible blood. Mix together 1/2 cup corn syrup and cornstarch in a large bowl. Slowly stir in the 1/4 cup of water, adding more if necessary, until the corn syrup mixture has thickened to the consistency of blood. Stir in the red and blue food coloring.
Stab each frosted cupcake with a few shards of broken sugar glass. Drizzle on drops of “blood” to complete the effect.
