Five Things #144

Every Tuesday I share five things I've liked and think you might like too. Here are this week’s Five Things…

  1. How do we know a kilogram always weighs a kilogram? The answer to that recently changed: The kilogram has changed forever. Here’s why.

  2. It's hard to believe that the scene in this video was generated by a video game engine and isn't real life footage. Madness!

  3. I thought this was rather interesting, this animation compares the timelines for married couples in the 1970s vs 2010s. Nowadays people move in together sooner and wait longer before getting married. The difference 40 years makes!

  4. I absolutely loved this two part podcast interview with Questlove (drummer of the Roots) on the Broken Record podcast hosted by Malcolm Gladwell and Rick Rubin. Questlove is an incredible drummer and an all round fascinating guy.

  5. Unfortunately I don't have any invaluable works of art to transport but nonetheless I found this interesting: How to move a masterpiece: the secret business of shipping priceless artworks.

That's all for this week. If you enjoyed it, sign up to my newsletter and you'll get the next one delivered to your inbox.

PS. There will be no Five Things for the next two weeks! Fear not, usual service will resume on the 23rd April.
