What kid wouldn’t love a 50 meter (160 foot) long crazy straw? While his 5-year-old daughter took a birthday nap by the pool, dad got to work. When she woke up this straw was hanging in front of her. Tearing it down when they were done seems to be the highlight for her, because children love desctruction.

We need to look no further than this photo project to show that women constantly feel scared, and this will not change until the culture does. These women were given … Keep Reading!!!

My personal favourite is the pink pen one. Hey, he warned you!
No word on who the professor is, or what school you need to attend to get the job of learning from him but it’s great to see creative ways to engage students.
