Four-year-old Jivan lives in a skyscraper in Brooklyn, New York, USA Where Children Sleep, set to be published later this year by Chris Boot , is a collection of James Mollison 's photographs of childrens' bedrooms from around the world. The book also contains a portrait of each child and, as you'd imagine, the differences between the spaces each one calls their own are striking... The book has been designed to appeal to readers of all ages, with the texts apparently prepared with an audience of nine- to thirteen-year-olds in mind. "I hope this book will help children think about inequality, within and between societies around the world," says Mollison in his introduction, "and perhaps start to figure out how, in their own lives, they may respond." Here are a few examples from this really interesting and thought provoking book:

Beautiful rugs aren't hard to find, but sometimes they're just not exactly what you're looking for. Or maybe the one you really love is just not in the budget.

We like to feel superior to the people who lived centuries ago, what with their shitty mud huts and curing colds by drilling a hole in their skulls. But we have to give them credit: They left behind some artifacts that have left the smartest of modern scientists scratching their heads. For instance, you have the following enigmas that we believe were created for no other purpose than to fuck with future generations. The Voynich Manuscript
Humans react in a seemingly irrational manner during emergency evacuations; sometimes, people even get trampled in the process.
When photographer James Mollison was asked to do a project on children’s rights , he found himself thinking back to his childhood bedroom and the deep importance it played in his upbringing. Taking that idea with him around the world, he photographed a diverse cross section of children and the bedrooms they call home. His moving images remove the children from their home environment, showing them before a neutral background that mostly hides their economic status as if to say “kids are just kids.” Only when their bedroom is observed, however, does the full scope of their living situation become poiniently clear. Where Children Sleep, a beautiful hardcover book featuring 112 color photographs is now available from chrisboot.com .

However, the product designer Gerard Moline has combined the romantic notion of life after death with an eco solution to the dirty business of the actual, you know, transition.
Today, I had slept in and was late going to school. On a note I wrote my reason for being late as "busy fighting crime" and I drew the Batman symbol under it. My mom laughed, signed it, and dropped me off to school. When I got to school I signed in at the attendance office, and gave my note to the secretary.
The greatest smart-ass responses to idiotic graffiti. posted 02/16/2013 Bathroom walls give opinionated urinators everywhere a makeshift, bacteria-covered forum for virulent racism, misogyny, homophobia and, worst of all, philosophy. Of course, we'd never advocate one of these obscene acts of vandalism — unless it's a smart-ass response to a previous act of vandalism.
