The moon has been getting some coverage in the media recently, and we're here to remind you that it's actually more than a sliver in the sky; the moon is the closest astronomical body to Earth and it's really beautiful.

Photographer Places Giant Cats In Photos With Himself And It's Something Out Of A Ghibli Movie

You can say that the artist, Petechka Odnobokov (Peter, for short), is larger than life! Peter places these images of giant cats (who you may have seen circulating the interwebs) in urban, and not so urban landscapes. A man with glasses and a beard is also present in each and every photo, this is Peter himself! 

Peter is always looking at ease and relaxed in the pics as the giant felines roam about (or nap about). Peter writes under one of the photos, a photo with cats is a peculiar way of communicating with the world around him. This allows you to draw a bridge between his total isolation from childhood and the outside world with other people.

The world he has created is certainly better than our reality!

netflix study reveals binge watching stats and movie pairings

In a new study, Netflix found out what 86 million members across 190 countries watch after they finish binging on a TV show and how long it takes them to dive into another one.

The results? 59 percent of viewers give it about three days before moving on to their next show, while 61 percent simply watch a movie. The point is, we never stop watching something apparently.

via GIPHY

The study went even farther, looking at what movies people commonly watch after a good binge. They found that people like to stay in the same genre when going from binge watch to movie watch. According to TIME, “After finishing all four seasons of House of Cards, viewers often watched Beasts of No Nation. Bingers of Gilmore Girls went on to watch Sixteen Candles and The Princess Bride. Bloodline was frequently followed up with a serving of Spotlight for dessert”

Narcos watchers followed up on their interest in drug trafficking with documentaries like Cartel Land and Narco Cultura. Fans of Marvel’s Luke Cage took in 13th, Ava DuVernay’s documentary about race and the American criminal justice system. BoJack Horseman devotees tended to prefer stand-up comedy specials, but a good number of them hunkered down with a motivational speaking superstar in Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru.”

You can read the whole study over on Netflix’s blog or just look at that handy graphic above. With the holiday break coming up, this pairing menu will certainly take some of that hard decision making off your hands.
