So this guy volunteers at the Olympics. He figures maybe he’ll get to see some amazing athletes doing athletic things. And then the fastest man alive gives him a fist bump.
Look at all that happy.

We just found the work of another awesome coffee artist. These tantalizing latte portraits are the work of Japanese latte artist Mattsun, currently treating people to delicious works of caffeinated art in Tokyo. Mattsun began creating drinkable works of art back in 2009 while working at an Italian restaurant. In 2011 he held a very popular solo exhibition, entitled Blue Sky Latte Art, in Dōtonbori, Osaka, Japan. To date he has created over 500 pieces of latter art and hopes to one day own a mobile cafe so that he can use his artwork to “bring smiles to people all across Japan.”
Out. Of. Control.

Another top class hotel.
Why doesn’t the Bible say anything about electricity, about DNA, or about the actual age and size of the universe? What about a cure for cancer? Millions of people are dying horribly from cancer at this very moment, many of them children. When we fully understand the biology of cancer, this understanding will surely be reducible to a few pages of text. Why aren’t these pages, or anything remotely like them, found in the Bible? The Bible is a very big book. There was room for God to instruct us on how to keep slaves and sacrifice a wide variety of animals. Please appreciate how this looks to one who stands outside the Christian faith. It is genuinely amazing how ordinary a book can be and still be thought the product of omniscience.
Bill Nye: Debate Over Evolution In Texas Schools Is Jeopardizing Our Future
A battle has been raging in Texas, and it’s all about evolution.
On one side are creationist-minded members of the state Board of Education. They don’t believe evolution should be taught in public schools in Texas. On the other side are board members who don’t want religious or political ideologies to suppress a widely accepted theory.
Huffington Post Science reached out to Bill Nye to get his take on the ongoing debate, which had recently flared during a board discussion about whether to approve new science textbooks. And the “Science Guy” had some choice things to say.
"This textbook business is, to my way of thinking, a very serious matter, because of the economic impact," Nye said in an email to HuffPost. "Everyone should take a moment and think what it will mean to raise a generation of students who might believe that it is reasonable to think for a moment that the Earth might be 10,000 years old."
"It’s an outrageous notion," Nye continued. "It’s not a benign idea. It’s inane or silly. These students will not accept the process of science, which will stifle or suppress innovation."
Using a Dallas-based high-tech company as an example, Nye said the suppression of science ultimately would mean that such companies "would not be able to find competent engineers to come up with new ideas and create new products."
"It’s not a religious issue, as such. It’s the future of the United States’ economy that’s at stake," Nye said.
The board ultimately decided to adopt the contested textbooks, but, of course, the evolution-in-schools debate has not been limited to the Lone Star State.
So what can parents across the U.S. do to make sure their kids’ scientific education isn’t being stunted?
"Vote — every chance you get," Nye concluded. "Make your voice heard."

Good on you Bill.
