Insufferable hipster with a lot of feelings.
Melbourne. Activism. Fauxtography. Reblogged dogs.
This is not work, this is Tumblr.
On Friday I had the pleasure of joining the Pacific Climate Warriors in Newcastle as they undertook the most powerful and beautiful action I have ever seen. There are no words that could possibly describe the power, resolve, and energy that was displayed by The Pacific Warriors as they used hand carved canoes to stop 10 coal ships from entering the port.
In the time I spent with the Warriors, short as it was, I experienced the absolute best of humanity. Those two days have change my life and has renewed my own resolve in the fight to save humanity from the oncoming storm of our own making.
Meeting the Warriors has made me feel that the change that we need is within our reach and that winning this fight is absolutely possible. It is hard to imagine we can lose when we have so much love, energy and joy on our side. What the Warriors have is impossible to ignore and so hard to resist. I am truly honoured that I am able to stand with the Warriors and to fight alongside them.
There is so much more that I wish I could say but just can not possibly find the words that would capture the beauty and power of what I witnessed. So for now I will leave it with a huge thank you to all of the Warriors. And congratulations to everyone else who has played a role in making this possible. It’s all coming together now.
Google’s other office.
Who wouldn’t want to work at Google? The whole HQ looks like an amusement park with FREE food 24/7 & if an employee of Google dies, their spouse will receive half their pay for 10 years as well as stock benefits, and any children will receive $1000 a month till they turn 19. Source
let me tell you a story about the google headquarters
so my uncle works for google and I went down to visit him once and he took my family on a tour of the google headquarters just for fun. there was tons of cool stuff and art and a random jungle themed room and the most crazy ass 360 degree google earth screen thing you ever saw
but you’d kind of expect all that right
but then I started to notice something kind of weird
there was a weird amount of rubber ducks? like. a WEIRD amount of rubber ducks. like typical yellow ones and camo ones and huge pink ones with bows and tiny donalds and pirates of the carribean themed ducks and bejeweled ducks with no explanation on nearly every surface
so i asked my uncle why there were so many ducks and this is what he said:
"google has a suggestion box for employees to use, and one time this guy got hired at google who had previously worked for another company. the other company also had a suggestion box but they never actually listened to any of the suggestions, so the new employee assumed that google would be the same way. so as a joke, he put a suggestion in the box at he google hq that said something along the lines of "great office but needs more rubber ducks." a week later, 5000 rubber ducks arrived in the mail"
google read this guy’s bullshit suggestion about ducks
and actually listened to it
AND ORDERED 5000 RUBBER DUCKS
The Sydney office (for real) bought part of the defunct monorail. And it has ‘stops’ which are named… well, guess.
The genius of The Simpsons can never be overstated. There are some incredible signs that aren’t included here like:
And my favourite:
I have no idea how they snuck that one into a children’s show.
