Advertisements are apart of our daily lives. We see it everywhere. On TV, the ride into work, even on the clothes we wear. Think about all the times you put on a shirt from some big designer, with a subtle brand logo on the shirt. Or when you put on a pair of heels with a red bottom. Advertisement, especially logos, is everywhere. And that's why we take them for granted. Because many are ingeniously designed, yet we never realize it.  Or appreciate just how clever they are.

This Artist Led A Tortured Life, But It Wasn’t As Creepy As His Paintings…

CULTURE
Zdzisaw Beksiski's paintings are more than a little creepy. You might call them downright disturbing. Beksiski was a Polish painter and sculptor who specialized in the field of "Utopian Art." For years, Beksiski made a life for himself creating his unique brand of grim, gothic paintings. Things took a sharp turn for Beksiski in the late 1990s. His wife died in 1998, and his son committed suicide on Christmas Eve 1999. Beksiski never recovered from the death of his son. A little over five years later in February 2005, Beksiski was murdered in his Warsaw apartment. He received 17 stab wounds, two of which proved fatal. With such a tragic ending, it's no wonder that Beksiski works are so strangely creepy.  1.) A blood red sunrise. ...

Spontaneous Eels, Living Planets and Monstrous Women: Aristotle’s Was Crazy.

Spontaneous Eels, Living Planets and Monstrous Women: Aristotle’s Was Crazy.

CULTURE
Aristotle was one of the greatest thinkers of all time. He even wrote works--Politics, Poetics and Metaphysics--that are still taught today. He wrote on a wide variety of sciences, including cosmology, physics, biology and chemistry. He developed the concept of empirical reality, in which theories are tested based on the evidence of our senses. He also collected information on thousands of species of plants and animals. But he wasn't perfect, and he was a product of a very different time and culture. Some of the things he believed formed the foundations for studies and disciplines thousands of years in the future. Other things, well, not quite so much. Here's a look at some of the things that we, thankfully, have decided not to take Aristotle's word for. 1. Women are deficient...
