    I think it's this post?

    If you like that Swiss Army blanket stuff, there are also vintage Italian and US Army blankets floating around.

    Just know the stuff isn't particularly comfortable. These aren't the kind of blankets that you snuggle up with or anything. They're just cheap, somewhat hipster-y, and keep you warm while you watch movies on the couch. Fine to use if you're wearing clothes, but a bit itchy against bare skin.

    Oh, and The Joinery is moving out of their NYC space. They sell some cool looking blankets, although I haven't handled them.

    So this was my initial thought for the first $500. And the next $500. Regarding actual treatment, I have a collection of oils mixed from her to treat everything from throat & neck swelling to vision improvement. The spending is honestly not what I'm afraid of, it's the cult-like mentality of rejecting empirical evidence and holding hearsay as gospel that seems to permeate everything I read about essential oils as panacea that I find concerning...

    For many New York City students, today marks the first day of school. That means it's the ideal time to make a stylish first impression, or stunt on the rest of the class. From toddlers preparing for preschool to teenagers who are in the throes of defining their own personal style, these photos capture the excitement of NYC-area kids (and parents) getting ready for that first day.

    ^^^ Thanks for sharing! I haven't followed complex enough recently but this is such a visually interesting social piece. Having spent so much of my time in rural and typically less consumer/ object based societies I really wonder what kind of people 3 year old children with preferences for particular Jordans will become.

    Everyone needs a hobby. At least she hasn't joined a Hummel collectors guild.

    I wanna pay an extra $750 a month to live 30 mins closer to work. My wife says I'm a baby. Who is right? C'mon, that's only a pair of Yeezy sweatpants!!

    Have you put it to her as a choice between moving closer to work and buying a new pair of Yeezy sweatpants every month?
