Yawning is so contagious that even dogs have been known to yawn after seeing humans yawn. Just reading about yawning can cause a person to yawn.  *Note: Most of you are either about to yawn, or already did.  Source

The angular patterns used in Jonathan Simkhai’s ready-to-wear Spring Summer 2015 collection are inspired by fragments of shattered glass. An entire field of research called “fracture mechanics” explores the propagation of cracks in materials. By performing controlled impact studies of projectiles at plates of glass, researchers have determined that the number of radial cracks around the impact point can be predicted from projectile speed and plate thickness. In forensic science, the application of fracture mechanics can be used to determine the trajectory and velocity of bullets by analyzing the cracks formed in windshields or glass after the projectile impacts with the surface.
This type of research is also done to test the strength of advanced materials. In the GIF above, filmed at GE’s Global Research Center, a glass jar shatters under 5,000 lbs. of force. Advanced materials, like the ceramics that go into GE jet engines, have to pass this rigorous test. While everyday objects shatter, these advanced materials are designed to take the pressure.

Award-winning photographer Seth Casteel came up with the idea for Underwater Dogs when he was trying to photograph a dog named Buster who wouldn’t stop jumping in the pool. His photos soon became the best selling photography book of 2012.

I spotted this fun motion graphic over on Herbert Frost’s blog, who translated the German calligraphy notes that I posted yesterday (thanks again Herbert!)
The above animation, by Al Boardman, is part of a longer 100 second film called ‘8 Great things to do in London’. The British designer’s blog is full of cool little animations, some for fun, some part of wider projects.
What is equally impressive is his achievements as a rock climber and mountaineer:

Al has summitted several previously unclimbed mountains. One of which is in Central Asia and, in an interview with the BBC, revealed that he was naming the peak after his grandmother. The rest of Al’s family are still waiting for him to make more first ascents and to name the peaks after them, which is awkward.
