Quartz is featuring a series six fascinating charts created by Henrik Lindberg based on data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics that show who people in the United States spend their time with over the course of their lifetime.
Time with friends, colleagues, siblings, and children diminishes over the course of a lifetime. The older we get, the person we spend the most time with is the one we see in the mirror.

Brad spotted a father and son on the subway wearing an awesome pair of t-shirts. The father’s said “The Original” and the son’s said “The Remix”. The t-shirts are made by KaAn’s Designs and are available in their Etsy shop. There’s an extended line that includes “The Original”, “The Remix”, “The Encore” and “Mic Drop”.
After a very long spin in a playground chair, a little Makari had some difficulty walking after getting very dizzy, much to the amusement of his father, former Pittsburgh Steelers player Chris Rainey, who is currently a running back for the Canadian Football League’s BC Lions.

Rob Cockerham of Cockeyed.com created a giant 6 foot fidget spinner costume using a 12″ lazy susan bearing, plywood and styrofoam that he cut to shape using homemade hot wire styrofoam cutter. Rob wore his ridiculous costume at Wizard World Comic Con Comic Con in Sacramento, taking it on the bus to get to the event.
I’m a big believer in making costumes which capture a popular trend or a fad… but some fads come and go before halloween time. The fidget spinner seemed like one of those trends. They were unknown in May, super popular in June, but clearly on the decline as school let out for the summer 2017. There was no way even a small splash of the fidget spinner fad would last until halloween.
Luckily, there was a comic book convention coming into town, and comic conventions require a costume.

When the culture of hip hop first began to take shape in the 1970s, it consisted of at least four fundamental elements: DJing, emceeing, graffiti, and breaking. Breaking, popularly known as breakdancing today, was created in the Bronx in New York City by Black and Latino youths. The term breakdancing as it’s used in the media, often mixes the dances of New York’s b-boying and west coast developed dance styles like popping, locking, and the electric bugaloo. Breaking began as a mode of self-expression; it was a part of a larger culture that reflected the social, economic, and political conditions of the youth at that time. It reached peak popularity in the mid-1980s, when a number of films were released showcasing it’s moves and the youth who created it—films like Flashdance, Beat Street, Wild Style, and Krush Groove.
