It’s not going to happen, but I would love an iPad Mini with an OLED screen.

A silhouette of a person stands with arms outstretched in a fog-filled room illuminated by blue light, creating an ethereal atmosphere.

Very dreamy audio exhibit at Mercer Labs NYC.

A large stone sculpture of a man with folded arms emerges from a solid block, with visitors around it. Engraved text reads: “OUT OF THE MOUNTAIN OF DESPAIR, A STONE OF HOPE.”

This is one of my favorite monuments in DC. The quote says “OUT OF THE MOUNTAIN OF DESPAIR, A STONE OF HOPE”

What is the protocol for waiting in the ER for someone? Can I ask others why they’re waiting?

An amber-colored drink with ice in a glass stemware, straw inserted, resting on a blue surface. Twinkle lights and a palm in the blurred background suggest an outdoor evening setting.

This is the only kind of ice I want to see for a loooong time.

A boy in a yellow jacket eagerly bites into a cream-filled cupcake, sitting against a floral-patterned background. The phrase “keep calm” is partially visible on his shirt.

He could never get enough birthday cupcakes

A gold-colored table lamp illuminates a marble surface, with blurred people and café setting in the background.

A cactus and a leafy plant sit on a ledge by a window, accompanied by decorative birds and a sign reading “A friend loves at all times - Proverbs 17:17”.

My wife has half a dozen of these little cactus plants around the house.

The Barnes and Noble by us has completely removed genres from the new book section so it’s impossible to tell where the new sci-fi books are. Hint: there were none! Why has this store gotten so bad?!

Brick building facade with sign “BABY’S ON FIRE RECORDS COFFEE” beneath three hanging lamps; a pride flag partially obscures the view on the right.

Cool spot in the city. Iced tea was good, bagel was good, eggs and cheese were meh. Nice vibe though.

A variety of objects on a metal table: a decorated Disney tumbler, an empty plastic cup, electronic devices, a pink water bottle, and other personal items, possibly indicating a casual outdoor setting.

Would love to be by the pool again, reading pages and pages of fiction.

🔗 Stranded fishermen rescued from tiny island thanks to ‘HELP’ sign // // usatoday.com

Previous castaways spelled SOS on beach on same island in 2020

Nearly four years ago, three other boaters in a 23-foot boat who departed from Polowat Atoll on July 30, 2020, also washed onto the same island after their boat ran out of gas.

The crew spelled out a giant “SOS” sign on the beach which was spotted by the crew of a US Air Force tanker operating out of Andersen Air Force Base on Guam.

Maybe they ought to put a radio on that island.

A spotlight beams onto a theater stage with suitcases, amidst elegant, arching, wood-paneled architecture, creating an anticipatory ambiance.

I just saw a guy in my rearview mirror who had a skeleton with a pirates hat sitting in his passenger seat with his elbow hanging out of the window. He was just driving around with this thing in his car. What in the world?

I cannot think of a single reason why I would need the Humane AI pin in a world where I have an Apple Watch or have AirPods in and also have a phone in my pocket. Assuming that Siri gets much better at stuff after the AI updates this year, as long as I have a way to control its functions without actually touching the phone, I don’t see why I would need to use the AI pin.

A metro train is arriving at a station with a distinctive waffle-style ceiling.

I love the vibe of the DC Metro stations and trains.
