Take a look at these incredibly tiny illustrations of the American West by California-based artist Sam Larson. Now go grab a penny and then look at the drawings again to really appreciate just how small they are. Our favorite piece is the Bigfoot scene. That may be the tiniest Sasquatch we’ve ever seen.

Larson posts all of his marvelous miniature illustrations on his Instagram account. Follow him there to see more.

1. Dammit Archie McPhee, do you *purposefully* make excellent posts about miniatures just so that I will reblog them?

2. So many awesome people in the world are named Sam. My BFF, for example, and this guy.

3. Dude, woah. These are incredible. My fave is the house on the cliff.

10 Poverty Myths, Busted | Mother Jones

america-wakiewakie:

1. Single moms are the problem. Only 9 percent of low-income, urban moms have been single throughout their child’s first five years. Thirty-five percent were married to, or in a relationship with, the child’s father for that entire time.

2. Absent dads are the problem. Sixty percent of low-income dads see at least one of their children daily. Another 16 percent see their children weekly.

3. Black dads are the problem. Among men who don’t live with their children, black fathers are more likely than white or Hispanic dads to have a daily presence in their kids’ lives.

4. Poor people are lazy. In 2004, there was at least one adult with a job in 60 percent of families on food stamps that had both kids and a nondisabled, working-age adult.

5. If you’re not officially poor, you’re doing okay. The federal poverty line for a family of two parents and two children in 2012 was $23,283. Basic needs cost at least twice that in 615 of America’s cities and regions.

6. Go to college, get out of poverty. In 2012, about 1.1 million people who made less than $25,000 a year, worked full time, and were heads of household had a bachelor’s degree.

7. We’re winning the war on poverty. The number of households with children living on less than $2 a day per person has grown 160 percent since 1996, to 1.65 million families in 2011.

8. The days of old ladies eating cat food are over. The share of elderly single women living in extreme poverty jumped 31 percent from 2011 to 2012.

9. The homeless are drunk street people. One in 45 kids in the United States experiences homelessness each year. In New York City alone, 22,000 children are homeless.

10. Handouts are bankrupting us. In 2012, total welfare funding was 0.47 percent of the federal budget.

Obligatory picture of the stairs at Powell’s City of Books, the “world’s largest independent new &amp; used book store.” They are not kidding. This place is well organized, but there aren’t just shelves of genres in a few rows. There are entire ROOMS of book genres. And when I say rooms, I mean spaces bigger than most apartments I’ve lived in. Great selection of board books for my toddler in the Rose Room, a collection of rare books in the Pearl Room, and yes they have a print on demand book machine. Also, they have vegan pastries &amp; rice, soy or almond milk in their coffee shop, and they’re right next to Whole Foods &amp; Buffalo Exchange. You got me again, Portland! Can I just live &amp; die here please?
