Is it just us, or does January get colder and longer every year? Feel like it's already 5 months into 2019 and it only just turned February? Weird. We read somewhere that as you get older, time seems to pass more quickly because each year becomes a smaller fraction of your life. When you're 4, a year is a quarter of your life, so it feels pretty significant. When you're thirty it's a mere 1/30th, so it zooms past. Not the most cheerful fact in the world...
However, all the more reason to make the most of your day we think! And this thought's been keeping us motivated, as have all these wonderful things up next that we've discovered in January.
Best of the Web
As a kid at the dentist coming off anaesthetic once said: "Dubai was LIT"! We didn't get it at first but then we saw the new Kriss Kyle BMX video from Red Bull and yea, it's lit. Watch in max quality in full screen 🔥
Sleep brand Casper announced a new bedside light that we're SUPER excited about. It's a wireless light that simulates sunset / sunrise to help you have a more natural sleep - kinda like a Lumee. However, as it's wireless, you can get up in the middle of the night, give it a wee shake and take it with you for snacks! It's definitely one of those "I didn't know I needed this until now" products. Read more / pre-order it here.
Namibian artist Max Siedentopf has set up a sound installation in the coastal Namib Desert to play on loop, in tribute to the soft rock classic 'Africa' by Toto.
Enjoy this gorgeous photo set of a Shiba Inu puppy playing in snow for the first time ever, here.
Artist Chris Labrooy imagined this modified Martian spec Porsche 911, with a "new propulsion system and bodywork". If Elon sends us to Mars, you bet we'll pick this over a Tesla.
Runner Khemjira Klongsanun was seven miles into the Chombueng marathon in Ratchaburi, Western Thailand, when she saw runners dodging a stray puppy. She picked up the lil fella and continued to run 19 miles to finish the race! She's since adopted him and named him Chombueng after the event!
