Mascots of the Universe. Having a bird in your hand might look like a sneaker, but it's not worth two sneakers.
HE-MAN & BASEBALL 💪 CONNECTING WITH STRANGERS 👔 SUSTAINABLE WEB 🌱
You've gotta love the return of baseball; creative people use it as a seed for some pretty cool creations. Last week it was GoT bobbleheads and this week I follow it up with an MLB-Masters of the Universe mashup. The fact that He-Man is not included in the final roster makes me think his mass is not entirely natural. It's a shame to see a classic toy get asterixed out of contention like that.
I also found some nice tools for productivity, a guide to a more sustainable web, Google's next level snooping, and cool things to make with paper.
