AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO WANTS TO STICK THIS THING LIKE IN A PUBLIC RESTROOM OR AROUND A CORNER IN SOME HALLWAY OR SOMETHING AND JUST WATCH THE LOOK PEOPLE’S FACES WHEN THEY RUN INTO IT
The most evil place to put it would be in a dark hallway at a University games design dept. Full of half-asleep people who know exactly what it is.
"Shiiiiiiit!" *leaps back around the corner*
"ARE YOU STILL THERE~?"
I NEED 10000 OF THESE
Always to be reblogging Aperture Science technologies
This is incredibly upsetting to me.
I don’t want to come across as mean or rude, but ever since I first posted this I keep getting notifications of people getting upset over this picture, and saying things like “that’s no way to live”, “the government should do something about this”…etc.
Does no one realize the picture was taken on a lean? The houses are built on a hill, they actually stand straight up. The photographer has been VERY bloody clever, and turned their camera to make the road look horizontal.
The houses are perfectly sound, perfectly vertical. So take a deep breath, calm down, and appreciate the creativity in this piece of photography.
My faith in pizza guys has gone up 123%
NO LET ME TELL YOU A STORY
So a few weeks ago I was in a hotel in Savannah with my grampa in the hospital next door, Mom was over staying with him, and the battery in the smoke detector went out so every 5 minutes it would let off this loud, high pitched ‘CHIRP’.
It was annoying as fuck, so I called the front desk to see if they had a battery for it, and they said the only thing they could do was change rooms. We’d already settled in for the night, and needed the next door rooms for my uncles the next day, so I said I’d deal. My uncles had my car in the next town over, so I couldn’t drive and get one myself.
An hour later, I’m ordering pizza and have gone insane because the damn thing CHIRPS. SO. MUCH.
So I begged the pizza guy on the phone to stop and get me a battery, told him I’d pay for the battery, and give him an extra tip for it, and he was chill with it. This adorable fucker gets to my room with the battery, opens it, asks to see the smoke detector, CLIMBS ON THE BED, CHANGES THE BATTERY FOR ME, and tests it.
My pizza was only 20 dollars, but I gave him 40 and told him to keep the change.
Exploring Europe’s Oldest Running Cinemas on Instagram
To see more photos and videos from Europe’s oldest cinemas, explore the Etoile Pagode, Kino International and Cameo Cinema location pages. For a glimpse into cinemas across the world, browse the #cinematreasures hashtag.
Founded in 1911, the Oxford Picture Palace (as it was then known) has been closed, reopened, refurbished and renamed many times in its long and enduring history. Like many of the oldest running cinemas in Europe, the staying power of the Ultimate Picture Palace stands as a testament to our love for film.
Whether it’s Berlin’s modernist Kino International—built in the 1960s, hosting premieres until the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989 and now home to the Berlinale Film Festival—or Edinburgh’s 1914-built Cameo (@thecameocinema) with its terrazzo floor and original ticket kiosks, some of Europe’s oldest cinemas are filled with undoubtable charm.
Over the last three years, Instagrammers across Europe have been capturing these great veterans of the celluloid medium. With their help, we put together a list of some favorites to explore:
