A Day in the Life

The name's Delaney. I'm a 17 year old musician, aspiring anthropologist, liberal, Beatles fanatic, baker, feminist, and a hippie at heart. I believe in the beauty of equality and equal rights.

Why Finnish babies sleep in cardboard boxes
For 75 years, Finland’s expectant mothers have been given a box by the state. It’s like a starter kit of clothes, sheets and toys that can even be used as a bed. And some say it helped Finland achieve one of the world’s lowest infant mortality rates.
It’s a tradition that dates back to the 1930s and it’s designed to give all children in Finland, no matter what background they’re from, an equal start in life.
The maternity package - a gift from the government - is available to all expectant mothers.
It contains bodysuits, a sleeping bag, outdoor gear, bathing products for the baby, as well as nappies, bedding and a small mattress.
With the mattress in the bottom, the box becomes a baby’s first bed. Many children, from all social backgrounds, have their first naps within the safety of the box’s four cardboard walls.
Mothers have a choice between taking the box, or a cash grant, currently set at 140 euros, but 95% opt for the box as it’s worth much more.
The tradition dates back to 1938. To begin with, the scheme was only available to families on low incomes, but that changed in 1949.

Socialism at work.

I would rather my tax money pay for this than drone missiles.

i’m a conservative republican and i would rather my tax rate go up to pay for this than drone missiles.

Now why can’t our government do something like this?

Artist Peter Cook, grew this living garden chair using tree shaping methods, primarily training a living tree through constricting the direction of branch growth. The chair took about eight years to grow.

He grew a tree into a chair. He can wear whatever the fuck he wants.

Willamette River, Oregon
My friend, Leyla, and I were seeing a movie but we got to the theater too early. To kill time, we decided to explore the area around the theater. Like something out of Narnia, we stumbled upon this massive river with many islands dotted in the center. We decided to wade out to one and that was where this picture was taken of Leyla —- and her marvelous red hair.
