One does not ask of one who suffers: What is your country and what is your religion? One merely says: You suffer, that is enough for me…

The Battle of Helm’s Deep already has its own official LEGO version, but the licensed set has nothing on this mind blowing set built by Lord of the Rings fans Rich-K and Big J.

As where the official LEGO version features 1,368 pieces, this custom job utilizes over 150,000 LEGO building blocks to recreate the classic scene from J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic novels. In addition to the staggering number of bricks used for the installation, Helm’s Deep also includes 1,700 minifgures. via io9

Happy Pi Day! #running

Happy Pi Day! #running

Front: 
“RA to GC
Together over 
the waters of time”

Inside:
“To see the world, things dangerous to come to
To see behind walls, To draw closer
To find each other and feel
That is the purpose of life”

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! 
Our tradition is to wait until midnight to give each other our gifts but we were both kinda tired from a run earlier yesterday AND we were really excited. She was worried her gift wasn’t going to get here in time but it did! Last month we finally got around to seeing The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. It instantly became one of my favorites and she knew it. In the movie, Walter receives a wallet from a photographer with a quote in it (above), urging him to explore. We both love adventure and traveling and discovering new things so she thought this was perfect. She couldn’t have been more right. 
And to make it unique, she inserted a piece of Sonnet LXXXI by Pable Neruda, one of our favorite poets.

She’ll never know how happy she makes me.

if you choose a job you love, you’ll never have to work a day in your life!! because the field you’re interested in isn’t hiring

Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science.

“Hey man, take my picture!”
“I can’t do it. It’s too dark.”
“Yeah, we need some light. Let’s go over there.”
“Are you homeless?”
“Yes, I am.”
“How long have you been homeless?”
“15 years. I’ve been in Boston 8 months. Before that I was in Washington, Virginia, New York, Philadelphia, Louisiana, Florida…”
“Why didn’t you stay in Florida? It’s so much warmer.”
“I wanted to see my family. But they don’t want to see me. They don’t understand depression. They treat me like dirt. Homeless people treat me better than my family.”
“And what happened 15 years ago? How did you end up on the streets?”
“I tried to burn myself twice. I had 30 surgeries. I was dead two times, but God brought me back. I don’t know why.”
“And why did you do it?”
“I was depressed. Why you crying?”
“Because you are a beautiful person, and my family is really messed up, and I’ve been very depressed. I think I can understand you.”
“Yes, I am a good person. And when you take people’s pictures, don’t disrespect them.”
“No, man, I won’t. I like people. That’s why I take their pictures.”
“And when you make your portfolio, don’t denigrate people. Let the pictures speak for themselves.”
“I will. Are you safe on the streets?”
“Yes, I am…And now I have $8 to buy me some food.”
“That’s all I have. Next time I see you, I will give you more.”
“No, man. It ain’t all about money. Give me a hug. And next time you see me, give me a hug again. And thanks for taking my picture.”
