Nancy Wake (1912-2011)

Nancy Wake loved a good drink and French men — and did not like killing people. Except for, well…Nazis . One of her numerous accomplishments during World War II? Killing a German sentry with her bare hands. Wake’s ability to evade capture earned her the nickname “the white mouse” from the German military. In a 2001 interview, she said, “I was not a very nice person, and it didn’t put me off my breakfast.”

I Just Found Out About These Insane Indoor Slides And You Gotta See This
Need to go now.

You guys, this is the inside of a building at the Technical University of Munich, in Munich, Germany. And yes, those are GIANT SLIDES.

youtube.com

The slides — which were installed in 2010 — span all four floors of the building, which houses the mathematics and infomatics departments.

And the slides actually do have a math-y subtext: They’re parabolic slides, meaning they follow a parabolic curve.

So why slides? According to German law, a portion of each building’s budget must be spent on art — and the slides counted as an art installation.

It’ll help you focus and prioritize your goals. You can keep a list of these in a journal or out somewhere in your bedroom or bathroom so that you’re forced to do it every single day. Getting in a routine of setting at least ONE goal for the day will help you figure out what’s important and also make you feel so accomplished when you’ve completed your task for the day.

Or if you’re feeling ambitious, try the “rule of three” for increased productivity.

It’s pretty simple: All you need to do is decide on three outcomes you want to accomplish each day. They can be as simple as … Read More »
