daily reminder that the boy you’re in love with at 16 probably won’t matter when you’re 25.

daily reminder that the math test you failed your freshman year of high school probably won’t matter when you’re graduating college.

daily reminder that the problems you’re facing today may seem like the worlds end, but they will not matter in a year.

daily reminder that you’re going to be okay.

everything is going to be okay.

This commercial features a 2,100 gallon pool of the cornstarch and water mixture known as oobleck, one of our favorite non-newtonian fluids. It was filmed in Kuala Lumpur by KIX for a Malaysian bank.

There are more creative commercials in the archives, including Music from a Tree by Diego Stocco and Burt’s Bees, Yuki Ariga’s Tissue Paper Animals for Nepia, and one of our favorites: NTT Docomo’s forest xylophone.

Thanks, @cosentino.

Rainbow Fragments on Spider Webs

The entangled pearl necklaces pictured above are actually droplets of dew on a spider web.

The subtle colors displayed here resulted when sunlight illuminated the web, creating a multitude of rainbow fragments. Note that, in general, the smaller dew drops, residing on the thinnest silk strands, are nearly colorless.

With these smaller drop sizes, wave interference acts to diminish coloration because colors tend to overlap one another.
