Jessie and Adam's fall wedding in the Mendocino Woodlands State Park in California had lots of traditions and symbolism in the Nordic ceremony. The pair and their wedding party carried logs with rune symbols which were burned ceremonially. Burning incense and herbs were sprinkled around the perimeter ceremony site. Adam even hand-built the GORGEOUS ceremony arch structure which had carved Nordic dragons. The night ended with celebrating, games, ax-throwing, and camping, and we can't get enough. Just wait until you see the bride's surprise colored dress underlay, the pumpkin details, and the sheet music and burlap non-floral bouquet.

Here are some details about the ceremony from the couple, since it's super intricate: The ceremony started with a blessing by our friend Elayne and the bridesmaids which included encircling our guests and ceremony area with herbs and incense.

Although it’s a big commitment and a lot of work, the experience teaches you a lot of good and beneficial things. A loving pet has the ability to convert even the most anti-animal person into an animal lover; and the bond between man and pet can be just as powerful as a bond between family members. Choosing the right animal companion is of the utmost importance when you decide to become a pet owner. Above all, it needs to be an animal that effectively compliments your lifestyle and rhythm. Cats and dogs are the standard, and there’s already tons of variety in that; but did you know that there are a couple of wild or exotic animals you could actually own as pets?

These animals originate anywhere from the tropics of South America to your own backyard. They may not be the best choices for first-time pet owners, but it’s still pretty cool to know that they even exist as options. Photo cred – gianthamster.com Capybara Sugar Glider Wallaby Hedgehog.

Mar24 by Brenda Ponnay Picture this: Dad comes home from a long day at work and the kids are anxiously waiting for him at the door. “Dad! Dad!” They exclaim the minute he walks in. “Would you like a glass of ice water?” He gives them a funny look. “Ahhh,” he says, sinking down into his favorite chair. “WHAT!!?” The kids erupt into uncontrollable giggles. The ice was plastic and the water was warm! 1. some blocks (the size of ice cubes) 2. some clear plastic beads (any old kind you can find at a craft store) 3. tinfoil 4. an oven!

Take your blocks and stack two up. We had to do this several times until we got it right. Once you’ve wrapped your blocks, dump out the blocks leaving an empty mold. Then pop them in the oven at 375 F for about 20 minutes, or however long it takes your oven to get the beads nice and melted. When they are done, let them cool and then unwrap! Some cubes will need rough edges filed off or even clipped off with some heavy-duty yard clippers. Ice water anyone? This commune in BC lets you live for free and pays you in drugs.

Brought to you by: Poole picked out a white dried-up mushroom the size of my thumb and snapped it in two. “A gram for each of you,” says Poole, and hands me my half. One gram, it seemed, was a bit of a conservative portion, but I had heard stories of the Poole’s Land mushrooms. Like everything else on Michael Poole’s 17 acre rain forest property, the mushrooms grew with a powerful vitality which didn’t exist out east. “Poole’s Land”, owned by the 63-year old Michael Poole, is a bit of a legend amongst hitchhikers and hippies, known for its liberal trade of hallucinogenic drugs and cheap summer surf boarding. Each year, young travellers hitchhike their way across the continent by the truckload to seek out the freedom of Canada’s temperate west coast.

In October of 1988, Poole purchased his land in Tofino for only $50,000. . “10 dollars a day is now the basic trade, but whether they pay or just work… it’s no problem,” says Poole.

Reddit user TramStopDan documented and shared his recent experience of unlocking and discovering the contents of a box which his friend found discarded on the street next to the trash.

When he managed to open it, Dan found a mind-boggling collection of posters, illustrations, text, maps, technical drawings and personal belongings. Speculating on the original owner of the case, Dan writes: “Clearly something happened to this guy that was very memorable. So let’s take a peek at what he found… Pretty normal so far… Text on a poster with corrections and a few eyebrow-raisers to quote, such as, “…but after 12 years it developed that this picture of an obvious other-world invasion…” ‘Fairly small maps, hand-drawn on a clear-ish plastic-like material.’ They all have a hole in the middle, to be overlaid on something else. Hmmm… Getting weirder… (or cooler) … We're All Hypocrites: 41 Ways This Generation Doesn't Make Sense. We’re all guilty of it. Every single one of us. Don’t try and deny it. We’ve all said something then gone back on it hours, days or years later.

We’ve all stood up for something, then were exposed minutes later for not staying true to our cause. We’ve all thrown fits over problems we caused and cursed actions we’d repeatedly done ourselves. It’s OK because none of us are perfect. We may try our hardest to be the most honest, moral and grounded people we know, but sometimes, life just gets too hard; sometimes we just want a hamburger from McDonald’s or a plastic water bottle from CVS. We’re all hypocrites. Many of us are hypocrites about a climate crisis our parents didn’t know existed while our grandparents are hypocritical about parenting styles they refused to employ themselves. While I respect our generation’s ambition to change the world, to use collective appeal to turn laws and initiate change, we don’t always stand so collectively unanimous in our actions. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. How the Gun on the Original Duck Hunt Game Worked.

Today I found out how the gun on the original Duck Hunt game worked. If you’ve ever played Duck Hunt or any of the other NES games that used the NES Zapper gun, you probably at one point or another wondered how the game actually knows where on the TV you are aiming the gun when you pulled the trigger. It turns out, the method for accomplishing this is incredibly simple, as is the gun itself. This gun primarily just consists of a button (the trigger) and a photodiode (light sensor).

When you pull the trigger, this causes the game to make the TV screen go completely black for one frame. At this point, the game uses the light sensor to sample the black color it’s reading from your TV to give it a reference point; this is essential given that the ambient light in a particular room and other things of this nature can vary greatly. In the next frame, the game causes the target area to turn white, with the rest remaining black.
