    Have you ever wondered how a shoe gets made? I usually just put them on and don’t think twice about it. But then I watched this video courtesy of London’sVictoria & Albert Museum, and now I realize what I’ve been missing out on.

    Watch as Foster & Son‘s bespoke shoemaker Emiko Matsuko handmakes a beautiful brown leather brogue, from start to finish. The wooden shoe mold is carefully carved, the pattern meticulously drawn and the leather detailed with care. The result is one handsome pair of brogues.

  • Space Tourism Will Happen

    Space Tourism Will Happen

    Richard Branson claimed that his Virgin Galactic would bring tourists into space within a period of 19 months. Today, this has not happened yet. However, it will happen in the near future! The technology is there, it just needs to be used in the right way.
    Buying tickets: tickets will be bought from spacelines, something similar than airline ticket sales. Funny enough, you can already apply to fly with the Virgin Galactic at this very moment! Once accepted, this will only cost you $250,000.
    What about security? Passenger checks will be required, very similar than in airports.

    Travel insurance? Sure, however for this type of travel you could be looking at something between $10,000 and $30,000.
