This thing looks like a huge thermos, and it is. By keeping rotavirus and pneumonia vaccines cold for 50 days, it saves kids’ lives. I saw it work perfectly in a rural health outpost with no running water or electricity, just an amazing health worker using technology suited to her needs.

The Standard Dictionary of Facts, 1917 edition.

Ten volume encyclopedia (divided by theme) bound into one book, originally published in 1908 by Frontier Press and revised every couple years. Shown here are the American presidential details, ending with Woodrow Wilson (who was near the end of his first term at the time of publication) from the History section, and the book opened to a random place in the Science/Education/Religion section (thus the segue from Lungs to Lutherans).

When two human bodies want to get together, there’s not much that can keep them apart. It’s one of the most powerful forces in the world. Guess that’s why they call it attraction.
