I’m the type of person that spends $5 on a handmade birthday card. While I like supporting local artists this way, I don’t know what to do with the cards I get every year. Do I keep them or toss them? Right now, they’re piling up in a storage bin. Anyhow, I really like this Reddit thread where two brothers have sent the same card back and forth for over 40 years. Turns out many people do this. I’m going to start recycling my cards—after all the sentiment is always the same. – Vee

Like most people once summer hits, I’ve been experiencing some serious wanderlust. Stumbling upon this roundup of unreal travel destinations has increased both my need to take a vacation and belief that everything is a lie. 90% of these shots look like some big-budget imagining and CGI, and yet all are accessible to your average explorer. There’s a sea of stars, glow worm caves, some rainbow rocks, and real-life storybook castles. Now I will never be satisfied until I can witness these babies firsthand…feel free to throw some plane tickets my way. – Lauren

I always seem to be fascinated by architecture and especially how it has changed over time. This moving infographic shows the evolution of the American home over the course of 115 years and I’m totally geeking out over it. The fun graphics are paired with mini history lessons so you can get a healthy dose of knowledge while you scroll through. Call me crazy, but I’m quite partial to the iconic style of the California bungalow of the 1920’s. You should check it out and see how much the “American home” has changed from colonial style all the way to McMansions and now the small home movement. – Chrissy

Jimmy Kimmel Found That Kids Don’t Actually Have A Hard Time With Gay Marriage

I like these kids. Smart kids! They understand that when two people love each other they deserve the right to be together. They also understand that marriage is for the birds and they’d rather be single. Funny kids. Smart kids! – Chris
