Hello internet friends,
why not have a tea and read an interesting slice of internet?
For example – how the word tea and the word cha traveled the world.
No, we’re not bitching about their image sorting algorithm today. We’re talking brands. And especially Instagram brands: The Strange Brands in Your Instagram Feed. Lovely, isn’t it? And it seems to work rather well: Instagram Ads Are Basically Infomercials for Millennials
These days we’re very used to stuff turning into (usually very short-lived) memes and “go viral” – but back when we were all young and the internet was fun, this was a new thing: The Strange History of One of the Internet’s First Viral Videos

- Incredible ‘Hypatia’ Stone Contains Compounds Not Found in the Solar System – omg, space stones! If you really think about it, all stones are space stones. Wooooaaaaah.
- It’s Never Aliens—until It Is – I’m still undecided if I’d like it if we found aliens. I’m pretty sure I’d not like it how humanity would react to it, though.

That’s all, enjoy your tea!
