  Happy Tuesday Plussers!  I hope all of you are staying cool.  It's hot in Seattle!  This is a shot of me from a few weeks ago.  It was cooler that day!

Sometimes I find something that is so interesting and so deserving of attention I can't wait to put it up here.  This is one of those things.  This is a very interesting data visualization of WWII fatalities.  It leaves you with a lot to think about.  

I really highly suggest watching.  I don't think there is anyone who is following me who won't learn something from this.  In the comments bellow let me know what you found most interesting.

Well, yes I guess it is true that you can pretty much die of anything...but still you don't think of coffee as a toxin.  And now you know that the great French novelist and playwright Balzac died from drinking too much of it.  Who knew?

"To put a live eel up a horse’s butt. Bafflingly, this is sometimes used to refer to trying to lift someone’s spirits. Or maybe horses really love having live eels up their butts. I know very little about horses."

Yep, that's the one that jumped out at me.

Witchgrass
 
Something
comes into the world unwelcome
calling disorder, disorder—
 
If you hate me so much
don’t bother to give me
a name: do you need
one more slur
in your language, another
way to blame
one tribe for everything—
 
as we both know,
if you worship
one god, you only need
one enemy—
 
I’m not the enemy.
Only a ruse to ignore
what you see happening
right here in this bed,
a little paradigm
of failure.  One of your precious flowers
dies here almost every day
and you can’t rest until
you attack the cause, meaning
whatever is left, whatever
happens to be sturdier
than your personal passion—
 
It was not meant
to last forever in the real world.

I remember when I took this photo.  I was walking by one of the many little waterfront beach parks in Seattle and someone had left these two chairs out.  The beach was empty so I wondered who brought them there and who left them behind. 

If you got to sit in one of these chairs with anyone in the world, who would you chose to sit next to?

The photos of Lewis Carroll
Did you know that Lewis Carroll, or rather as he was really called Charles Dodgson,  was a photographer?  I did not!  Apparently, he started taking photos in 1856, when he was a young lecturer at Oxford.  It was a fashionable hobby during that time period.  He took many portraits, especially of children.  In this group there are a number of Alice Liddell who was said to be the inspiration for "Alice in Wonderland".

You can read an article about his photography here: http://goo.gl/eske6A

Miss Piggy on why she is a feminist pig

From:  http://goo.gl/JcF53j

"What is the future of feminism? The answer is obvious — feminism’s future must be proud, positive, powerful, perseverant, and, wherever possible, alliterative. It must believe in itself, share its triumphs, overcome its setbacks and inspire future generations.
I must, in other words, be a lot like … moi."

I was chaperoning a four day  field trip to +IslandWood with 142 5th graders from my daughters school this last week.  I had the chance to help these kids have a unique experience living in the woods in Bainbridge and learning about nature and our environment.  I learned a lot too.  Mostly I learned a lot about 5th graders but I also learned about nature and the history of the area where I live.  

This is a photo of Port Blakley, Bainbridge Island. I learned about the fascinating history of this area. At one point it was more famous than Seattle. The largest saw mill in the world was once located here, and brought in industry and immigrants from all over the world. It was once a populous and vibrant village. Now the saw mill is long gone and most of this area has gone back to it's natural state.
