A beautiful and clever tortoiseshell cat who’s unfortunately trapped in a “cone of shame“, strategically uses the device as a means to quench her thirst with a nice cool drink of water from the kitchen sink.
Common misconceptions about obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) are debunked in an animated video companion to a TED-Ed lesson on the subject by Dr. Natascha M. Santos. The video explains how OCD is not just a set of meticulous grooming and cleaning quirks, but instead is a serious, debilitating psychiatric condition that plagues sufferers with intrusive thoughts and repetitive behaviors to soothe those worries. People affected by OCD often have little or no control over their obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors, both of which can get in the way of a patient’s social life, career, and schooling.

Ô les mains is a photo series by multimedia artist Babak Hosseiny and photographer Jeffrey Vanhoutte (previously) featuring models posed with hands fused to their bodies in unexpected places. In the project statement, the opening line from On Certainty by Ludwig Wittgenstein is listed as the inspiration: “If you do know that here is one hand, we’ll grant you all the rest.”
The original idea for this project was conceived around a decade ago after reading this philosophical statement by Wittgenstein. From this point onwards Babak Hosseiny imagined a series of drawings of situations where hands are no longer only hands, but become the physical embodiments of the obstacles, wishes or fears of the individual.
