TED-Ed Blog» Blog Archive » Celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday with some of his best insults and pickup lines -
"William Shakespeare, long revered as the top dog of the English language, celebrates his 450th birthday today. TED-Ed celebrates the Bard’s big day by highlighting some of his best language — from his beautiful, romantic metaphors to his pointed, scathing insults. Beyond giving the world dozens of English language masterpieces and inventing countless words (including the word countless), Shakespeare certainly had a way with the romantic turn of phrase. In this TED-Ed Lesson, Anthony John Peters explains why Shakespeare’s coy use of metaphor was so effective — and may just help you get a date today." - Son of Groucho from Bookmarklet

"Photographer Will Burrard-Lucas got more help than he bargained for when he went to shoot a young family of meerkats in the Makgadikgadi region of Botswana. The new arrivals used the photographer as a look out post before trying their hand at taking pictures." - Son of Groucho from Bookmarklet

I Promise You’re Going To Laugh When You Watch This Video About Owls. I’m Dying. So Funny! | PetFlow Blog - The most interesting news for pet parents around the world. -
"Now that David Letterman has announced he’s retiring, I have a new suggestion for the next Late Show host: this narrator. His True Facts About Animals videos don’t just tell you all of the interesting things there are to know about each animal, but they’re entertaining as all get out. It’s pretty much impossible to watch this without doing two things: learning something, and laughing out loud. That makes it a win in my book! SHARE these owls (and especially this narrator) with your Facebook friends!" - Son of Groucho from Bookmarklet
DEDICATED on Vimeo -
"Dave Black, Robert Beck and George Karbus are three prolific photographers, all thriving in successful careers. But what drives them, day in and day out, to pick up their cameras and strive to create great pictures? This short film captures Dave Black, Robert Beck and George Karbus—all using the new Nikon D4s—as they work out in the field and do what they love, shooting everything from ski racing to speed skating, rugby to motocross, super-bikes to coastal waves. And through this stunning visual exploration, we tap into the minds of what it means to be truly DEDICATED. This film was also captured on the Nikon D4s by director and filmmaker Corey Rich. Relying on a small footprint production, Rich captured these three photographers over 21 days in January 2014, in four locations stretching from San Diego to Salt Lake City to Tampa to Ireland. Be sure to watch the behind-the-scenes footage, “The Making of DEDICATED” here:" - Son of Groucho from Bookmarklet
