Isnt it sad how soulless our construction is now.
Old federal building
New federal building
Awesome floor! Here’s mine from 1895. https://m.imgur.com/a/IdJJoq5
Those type of details were pre glued together on some kind of cloth backing in factories. Even back then. Still looks amazing the spacing of the nails is perfect.

Back when people actually gave a shit about quality of work in construction. Now you’d be lucky to even get a square wall.
It was 1902, they had nothing better to do than stare at the floors
Love it. There are a bunch of these in Louisville, KY.
Those miters are pretty good for hand cut.
The carpenter may have been Celtic and decided to throw in some Celtic knots.
Nice craftsmanship. I'm sure this was expensive in 1902.
Everyone from 1902 is now deceased but the legacy of fine wood flooring lives on.
Wood work is great but I bet your plumbing is terrible.
It’s never not always on my mind
FYI it's called a French knot.
Looks like a tower defence maze from Warcraft 3
Shout out DC shoes.
It’s nice to see them so well taken care of
A dead generation. Whoever did that clearly gave a fuck about how they left their mark. That’s all dead.
OCD wants shoes not in the pic.
If ya look closely, Issa dick
Too bad some dope face nailed all those boards down sometime after 1902.
AHHHH IT HURTS KILL IT WITH FIRE
Cost an arm and a leg to get fake wood floors. The architecture back then was so beautiful.
I like it!
I thought that was something else at first...
Riding a bicycle.
Looks like a great opportunity to summon something.
breathes heavily in 9/11
Now just put your offering to the dark lord in the sink and just walk away
the shape of life
Waiter, this beer is far too hoppy
Anyone else a complete idiot and look for a hair in the pint?
Cool. Me too.
You should've complained and got another.
I see a mouse-deer.
I was looking for hair for soooo long before i realized you said hare.
That’s very clever and even a bit charming
I once heard that the glaze “seal” was broken on a chipped item and that I should stop using it? Like the ceramic under the glaze was bad for me/my food somehow? Is that a thing? Do we have a ceramic expert around here?
How can I do that when I chip a bowl?
Spoon resting spots!
Looks like they could've been fixing them with ramen.
now theyre spoon holsters.
My mom has bowls which look exactly like this, from the factory.
How do you not it's not the original design?
You should lookup kintsugi
The Clove Club (Michelin starred restaurant in London) does something similar. Broken crockery gets repaired with glue mixed with gold dust, so the cracks are gold. This is apparently an Eastern tradition that they borrowed because it looks cool and makes less waste.
It is also better than what some restaurants do: take the cost out of the waiter's tips.
Oh damn I have a Dremel. I gotta try this immediately.
Not related to anything here but r/askreddit won’t let me post my question and this is the first post I stumbled upon. What is the microphone that pops up by peoples usernames? Is it like the cake?
That pic is obviously pho shopped.
why am I finding this so beautiful??? like it's making me FEEL something
Oh man, I love me some pho!
Isn't it common practice for them to repair damaged ceramics to give them character?
Just as any good Vietnamese mom would.
Pho real? That's Phontastic.
Buy it pho looks, buy it pho life.
Now that's pho sure a great idea
I would be concerned with bacteria getting into the pourus ceramic. My mother-in-law had one of her cracked plates tested at the university she worked at years ago. And sure enough that crack was full of bad stuff.
Neat. I wonder if they do any Kintsugi too, which would be even neater.
I need a normal bowl for comparison
handy for keeping your spoon from sliding around in the bowl.
They give the bowl, Character
You can use the chipped spot to slurp up the broth like an animal
Dammit now I gotta got get pho
I love it how do you smooth them?
Pho is my favorite food
That's just being cheap
Mine doesnt and keeps using them
That bowl got phocked up.
How do they smooth out the rim?
I already do that, lol. Fortunately/unfortunately I don't have any rn since I don't typically make a habit of dropping dishes
Probably authentic custom!
Anything to save some cash
Edit: I meant this in a positive way saving money is always a plus
Just buy some new bowls.
That’s cheap as fuck.
I wish someone would give me gold
You’re right, it’s not a real shop with standards like that
This is actually a really smart idea. And it makes them look unique.
Wow so neat
Ever since I got food posioning from little ceasers I get nauseous even thinking about eating there 😣🤢🤢🤮
Was he alright?
Plot twist: this dragonfly was cryogenically frozen, and will thaw in 1000 years, when most humans are gone, and make a bunch of baby dragonflies to help take over the world.
Autumn is my favorite season.
There are many emotions in this picture
All conductors used to have different punches: my grandfather, a 30-year conductor on the St. Louis-San Francisco (Frisco), had a punch shaped like a cherry. When my father was a conductor on a tourist railway, his was a circle with small projections at 3, 6, and 9 o'clock.
This post is a perfect example of what I expect to see on this page, excellent job
I work at a Mcalisters (similar to Panera) and this made me think of our hole punches! We have Lunch Cards, where after you’ve bought 9 meals, your 10th is free. Our hole punch for those cards are shaped like little cups with straws sticking out! I find little things like this so cute!
I took a photo yesterday of my conductors hole punch which was also a train just to add to:this sub when I got home today - can’t believe you had the same idea the same day.
It’s a scared cat standing on a branch.
ITS SO CUTE
Thomas the steam engine intestifies
Is it just me or does this dude look like he smells like eggs?
Someone should put an Alexa speaker in his mouth.
Why not Zuck?
Alexa play China’s National anthem.
he damn watchin you
Uncle Jeffy hungry for data
That painting is creepy, unnatural and hides a sinister invasion of privacy.
In other words it is shockingly accurate to who it is portraying.
I just saw one of these with Zuckerberg instead
I would call this guy a living Lex Luthor but at least LL had some charm.
Bezos just bought and razed this building. The artist's whereabouts are unknown.
This is so accurate
Big Brother is watching.
Missed opportunity for them to be nipples, that's for sure.
Sits on Pentagon board.
Received 600m from CIA.
I'm not going to stop supporting Amazon.
All hail our Big Tech Overlords
Lushsux is the artist, he does great work actually
Can we please credit the creator @lushsux on Twitter
He looks exactly like Lex Luther here.
I'm sorry, Venkman. I'm terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought.
That looks creepy as fuck. I think its the idea of pupils sticking out like that, that makes this particularly unnerving.
Art imitates life
‘Jeff Bezos’ is actually Spanish for ‘I AM ALWAYS WATCHING YOU MORTALS’
Why does Jeff Bezos look like Lex Luthor
BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING!!!
I hate it. I mean it’s really good but I hate it.
Amazon is always watch us 😳😳😳😳😳😳😔😔✊ smh red hit
The eyes of Doctor TJ Eckleburg
Lush sux is the man
This can't be Bezos; both of them are pointing the same direction.
HE SEES ALL
HE KNOWS ALL
I saw someone do this but with mark zucc instead (well I saw a picture )
Imagine walking by and the camera is following you
What about the droopy eye?
It would be even funnier if it was Mark Zuckerberg
Big brother is watching
And those cameras will be used to record wrongdoing and crimes of those who like to hide in secluded alleyways or vandalize company property. Also, they'll likely be utilized for machine learning to better tell waste companies when they need to come pick up the trash, making for more efficient routes and lower carbon footprints. Similarly, they could be used to track the number of bike riders using a particular street, letting the city know if they should be adding protected bike lanes to improve the safety of an area.
But yeah... A building with a couple of security cameras totally screams "surveillance state" and big brother end times.
Which came first? The chicken Jeff Bezos, or the egg overwhelming desire to get anything you want RIGHT NOW
Amazon is the conduit by which cheap Chinese shit ruins America.
I can’t tell if reddit loves or hates bezos, one day he’s bad man next day he’s a wonderful philanthropist and furthering mankind.
ooo I just saw the same thing but with Mark Zuckerberg
Jeff Bezos isn't really associated with surveillance though.
I thought his head was bigger.
Credit goes to @lushsux on IG, he’s an amazing artist.
The artist is lushux (not sure if he has reddit)
zuckerburg would have been a better pick.
The Big Brother
The hatred for Bezos and Amazon on this site is so ridiculous. Yes, he's far from perfect but he's not some kind of monster. The weirdest thing is he's not even some conservative corporate overlord who bankrolls Republicans like the Koch brothers were. He's an active Democrat who has done much to help liberal candidates and causes.
Hmmm somethings not quite right there.
Looks more like nipples coming out of his eyes.
Oh wow, that's really deep man. That art degree is really paying off.
How is Amazon related to surveillance?
He got the creepy eyes just right.
Bald man bad
@lushsux on insta. he rules.
