Inseparable Cats Insist On Sleeping Together Even After Outgrowing Their Bed

in Design Nerd by

Meet Lili (grey) and Renley (ginger) – two adorable kittens that can’t stop snuggling in their favorite spot – a bed perched on top of a cat condo.

Ever since they were adopted, this bed was their favorite napping spot. Now that they’ve gotten bigger, they’ve obviously outgrown their beloved cuddle bed, but that doesn’t stop them! They’d rather squeeze in and cuddle in this tiny bed than go for another napping spot. It’s just too cute! Take a look below.

Still Cleaning Up: 30 Years After the Chernobyl Disaster (35 photos)

in Photo Nerd by

This month marks the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. On April 26, 1986, technicians conducting a test inadvertently caused reactor number four to explode. Several hundred staff and firefighters then tackled a blaze that burned for 10 days and sent a plume of radiation around the world in the worst-ever civil nuclear disaster. More than 50 reactor and emergency workers were killed at the time. Authorities evacuated 120,000 people from the area, including 43,000 from the city of Pripyat. Reuters reports that a huge recently-completed enclosure called the New Safe Confinement—the world's largest land-based moving structure—will be “pulled slowly over the site later this year to create a steel-clad casement to block radiation and allow the remains of the reactor to be dismantled safely.” Gathered below are recent images of the ongoing cleanup work and the ghost towns being reclaimed by nature within the 1,000-square-mile (2,600-square-kilometers) exclusion zone in Ukraine.

How People Look After 1, 2, and 3 Glasses Of Wine

in Design Nerd by

There’s a saying about wine, that “the first glass of wine is all about the food, the second glass is about love, and the third glass is about mayhem”, says Brazilian photographer Marcos Alberti. According to him, the “3 Glasses after [project] started as a joke like a game after hours”, during which he photographed his friends after one, two, and three glasses of wine.

“The first picture was taken right away when our guests have just arrived at the studio,” explains Alberti, “in order to capture the stress and the fatigue after…working all day”. As the pictures reveal, however, a smile or a hint of goofiness soon begins to creep into the photos. By the last shot, many of Alberti’s friends can scarcely contain their mirth!

Baby Elephant Can’t Stop Following Her Rescuer After Being Saved From Death

in Design Nerd by

Moyo almost drowned trying to cross a flooded river when she was just a few days old. Abandoned by her herd, the baby elephant was found just in time – a pack of hyenas was approaching her. Rangers took Moyo to Wild Is Life sanctuary, whose founder Roxy Danckwerts became the orphan’s new mom.

Now 14 months old, Moyo follows Danckwerts everywhere.”She knows my voice, my smell and somehow knows where I am at all times,” said Danckwerts. “How, I have no idea!” It’s getting trickier with time because Moyo keeps getting bigger and her raids around the house are more difficult to handle.

“She is one of those animals with whom I have formed an extraordinary bond of friendship, trust and love,” said Danckwerts. ” Letting go will be hard. However, I am so determined and so sure of this road that I have chosen. I want the best for the elephant children, and that best is freedom to roam and to make their own choices.”

This Polish Statue Looks Like Darth Vader After A Snowy Day

in Design Nerd by

When Jakub Wejher founded the town of Wejherowo in 1643, he never thought he would be declared a Sith Lord in 2016. But little did he know that a statue of him in the town square, when covered in snow, would reveal his true identity: Darth Vader.

If you thought that this post was pretty funny, check out what some Star Wars fans did over in Ukraine: they replaced a statue of Lenin with Darth Vader!

This Woman Left A Note After Someone Stole Her Parking Space. The Response Was Unexpected

in Design Nerd by

It’s natural to cringe when you spy a piece of paper tucked under the windshield wipers of your car, but what would you do if you found out that the paper was a note, and not a ticket? Recently, a woman who found her paid residential parking spot taken by a stranger left a note communicating her displeasure. She also wrote that while she could have gotten the car towed, she instead parked elsewhere, which resulted in an parking ticket that she couldn’t afford.

To her surprise, the next day, she found an envelope under her windshield wiper–an envelope with an apology letter and 100 USD in cash!

After His Wife Passes Away, Husband Posts Her Goodbye Letter That’s Both Funny And Touching

in Design Nerd by

Heather McManamy is sending you a letter from her grave. This great mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013. Now, at the age of 36, she passed away. But before that, she entrusted her husband Jeff with a letter he was to (and did) post on her Facebook.

Speaking from beyond the veil, Heather asks people to tell her daughter about her love (and maybe exaggerate stories of her coolness a little). But most of all, Heather asks us all to appreciate every day we have and take all we can from the fragile journey of life.

Man Quits His Job After Visiting Burning Man, Spends 10+ Years Drawing In The Sand

in Design Nerd by

Imagine if the art you spent hours making was destroyed soon after completion. For 44-year-old San Francisco-based artist Andres Amador, who creates sand-paintings up to 100,000 square feet (~35,000 sqmt) in size, this is a reality.

Amador received a BA in Environmental Science before joining the Peace Corps and then starting a regular career, but it was a visit to Burning Man in 1999 that changed him. He quit his job, and in 2004, in the hours been low and high tide, started doing sand art.

“It’s an event that cannot be encompassed in any photo or story,” Amador says of Burning Man, “and it really shifted my perspective on what life could be and how one could craft one’s life experience.”
