Don't you miss 
the easy days
the black and white days
when you didn't wake up 
to wonder where you stand

The early days
when you thought you were old
and the world no longer the place 
you once knew?

A reboot, a reboot!
A loss of innocence regained.

Days of wonder, long passed
the red days are here
what was once true
is not, but is
but wasn't when you look again

But you can't forget

— Begun in August 2013. It's not over

Two minutes: Addiction is Life is Yellow.

Addiction is a much-maligned, muddy word. Until (ca.) the 18th century, it connoted tendency and drive, rather than (self-) affliction. Opium changed that- reportedly. 
Lives described as addiction: to the approval and company of peers, to power and its accumulation, to enjoyment and personal satisfaction (to some people, this may be suffering) and to basics such as air, food, water… and possibly even living. When framed this way, and defined in reference to this word, life suddenly becomes a selfish pursuit in which the living will do anything to get their fix, devoted addicts all. 
On that note: Marylin Manson - I Don't Like the Drugs, But the Drugs Like Me. 
Also: Addiction is apparently yellow. 

A grain of rice can save the world…

…with a bit of help from all its other grains of rice friends.
Not being able to do decent research into nutrition forced me to get a bit creative with this one. And do actual maths. Thanks to Ugur & Silke for their help in this.
Extra Info: this is what a single grain of rice looks like close up:

I wonder if a series of single grain infographics would be would be interesting?
