  • Molly Barker wants to change the world. This time, there’s no running required.

    Last year, when Molly Barker finally hit upon her plan to unite America, she was driving around the country, trying to understand why we, as a nation, are so quarrelsome. For weeks, she’d been striking up conversations with strangers – dozens of them – in a Virginia Jiffy Lube, a Pennsylvania motel, a Starbucks in upstate New York. Usually, she asked about polarization in Congress, and she posed her questions while wearing red boots, which she found to be useful conversation starters.

  • Snowman time lapse

    Aaron Pearce of Charlotte, NC built a snowman along a path at McAlpine Creek Park on Wednesday during a driving snowstorm. By Thursday as Pearce had said, "someone will knock it down," the snowman had been destroyed before the warm temperatures could melt him away. So for fun, we decided to speed up Pearce's work from Wednesday and enjoy the snowman in his finest hours.
