Beat the Grid

No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.

— Nelson Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom (1995)

BBC News - Amazon testing drones for deliveries

Amazon, the world’s largest online retailer, is testing unmanned drones to deliver goods to customers, according to Chief Executive Jeff Bezos.
The drones, called Octocopters, could deliver packages weighing up to 2.3kg to customers within 30 minutes of them placing the order, he said.
However, he added that it could take up to five years for the service to start.

The US Federal Aviation Administration is yet to approve the use of unmanned drones for civilian purposes.

These wonderfully creepy images of Halloween’s past come from the book, Haunted Air. The book features dozens of anonymous vintage Halloween photos dating between 1875 and 1955. The photos in the book come from the personal collection of Ossian Brown, a British musician and artist.

Hey I'm James Lewis, I didnt really want to be rude and just submit some of songs to your blog, but I thought it would be cooler to taking the time talking to you personally. I'm looking for fans or people that listen to good music, but I'm still kinda new to tumblr. I just really hope you can stop by and check it out! Thanks for reading this message from iamjameslewis

HI James. We’re not a blog, but a band. Will take a listen. Enjoy your Halloweeeeen

  • fits into a single-car garage
  • takes off vertically
  • lands for you, steers for you, and alerts authorities for you (ie you can fall asleep while you ‘drive’)
  • fits 4 [normal-sized] people
    (this could be a problem in a Wall-E future….)
  • can be driven manually or automatically
  • can go 500 miles
  • automatically avoids air traffic and bad weather
  • if you become unresponsive it instantly auto-lands
  • has a parachute in case shit gets f*****
