Strange Inventions From the Past

 

Here is an ice mask from 1947 used to cure hangovers. Looks kind of pleasant

 

This fancy baby carriage from 1931 might not be so stylish but you can go for a stroll without worrying about gas attacks!

Easy steps to conserve water

Water conservation has become important in all regions, even rainy one’s such as my home in Seattle. Water is not an unlimited resource and everyone uses a lot of water per day. There are a few really easy tricks that won’t be difficult to work into your daily life. By doing all of these you could save literally hundreds of gallons per week. This can decrease your utility bill and make you feel good for caring for the environment. Give them a shot.

 

 

  • If you use a low-flow shower head, you can save 15 gallons of water during a 10-minute shower
  • Every time you shave minutes off your use of hot water, you also save energy and keep dollars in your pocket
  • It takes about 70 gallons of water to fill a bathtub, so showers are generally the more water-efficient way to bathe.
  • Nearly 22% of indoor home water use comes from doing laundry. Save water by making sure to adjust the settings on your machine to the proper load size.
  • Energy Star dishwashers use about 4 gallons of water per load, and even standard machines use only about 6 gallons. Hand washing generally uses about 20 gallons of water each time.
  • Fix those leaky faucets. A small drip from a worn faucet washer can waste 20 gallons of water per day. Larger leaks can waste hundreds of gallons.
  • Turn off the water after you wet your toothbrush. There is no need to keep the water running while brushing your teeth. Just wet your brush and fill a glass for mouth rinsing.
  • Keep a jug of water in the fridge, that way you don’t have to run the tap for the water to get cold.
  • Collect the water when waiting for it to warm up before your shower then use it to water your plants.

Before Photoshop

Currently, I am teaching myself Photoshop because it’s a very valuable tool for the field I want to go into. I found an interesting collection of pictures from one of my favorite websites Imgur.com which is kind of like Reddit.

The following are movie posters created by an artist named Drew Struzan. Before technology was as it is today, creating movie posters was done by some really talented artists from around the world. I feel all of these are far more interesting than the movie posters we see today which seem to always just be pictures of the main actor from the film.

This is a rare concept piece from Struzan that was not used but looks awesome.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
