What better way to start the day than with a peaceful river flowing?

Here are some behind the scenes photos from The Big Bang Theory set, for all you nerds out there.

It looks like they’re jumping into an endless pit, right? Well, that’s actually an underwater cave in Texas. Jacob’s Well has been integral to the cultural and historical character of the Wimberley Valley. The location has been a beloved swimming hole for generations, a gathering place for Native Americans and early settlers, and a rich habitat for aquatic species. Through the creation of the Jacob’s Well Natural Area, the land around the well has been unified to restore and protect this sensitive area for future generations.

I know that behind that table is just a cute little kid, but seen like this she is pretty scary.

The Chinese train their kids from a very fragile age to make it to the Olympiads. But, even though their bones are flexible, it still looks like these kids are being pushed over the limit.

So as you probably have already heard, Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks, is hiding in Ecuador, where he has been granted political asylum.

This is a photo from March 9, 1966. Here he is seated during a suiting up exercise Cape Kennedy, Florida, in preparation for the Gemini 8 flight.

This is the statement released by Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong’s partner on the Apollo 11 mission:

I am very saddened to learn of the passing of Neil Armstrong today. Neil and I trained together as technical partners but were also good friends who will always be connected through our participation in the mission of Apollo 11. Whenever I look at the moon it reminds me of the moment over four decades ago when I realized that even though we were farther away from earth than two humans had ever been, we were not alone. Virtually the entire world took that memorable journey with us. I know I am joined by millions of others in mourning the passing of a true American hero and the best pilot I ever knew. My friend Neil took the small step but giant leap that changed the world and will forever be remembered as a landmark moment in human history. I had truly hoped that in 2019, we would be standing together along with our colleague Mike Collins to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of our moon landing. Regrettably, this is not to be. Neil will most certainly be there with us in spirit.
On behalf of the Aldrin family, we extend our deepest condolences to Carol and the entire Armstrong family. I will miss my friend Neil as I know our fellow citizens and people around world will miss this foremost aviation and space pioneer.
May he Rest in Peace

Remember that Spanish restoration gone wrong? Well, it didn’t take long for the Internet to be swarmed with photoshopped pictures mocking that initial fail. Here is another one of them.

Although this is clearly a Photoshop (and not a very good one, to be honest), it’s still a nice ad.
