1. Quitting smoking



I have been smoking for most of my life. Now quitting is becoming an obsession. I have yet to quit for longer than 24 hours. I am experimenting with replacements for the dependance.

2. Forensic Architecture



I have been watching more and more of their videos; they get more interesting with time. I suppose the use of contemporary tools for classic investigations is not unusual, but still.

3. Soccer



I play it as often as I can.

4. Intelligent plants



Because they are
.

5. British Pathé



Over the course of a century, British Pathé documented everything for theater screenings before television was accessible. Now the reels have been digitized and are available on YouTube.
