We enter a little coffeehouse with a friend of mine and give our order. While we’re aproaching our table two people come in and they go to the counter:
‘Five coffees, please. Two of them for us and three suspended’ They pay for their order, take the two and leave.
I ask my friend: “What are those ‘suspended’ coffees?”
My friend: “Wait for it and you will see.”
Some more people enter. Two girls ask for one coffee each, pay and go. The next order was for seven coffees and it was made by three lawyers - three for them and four ‘suspended’. While I still wonder what’s the deal with those ‘suspended’ coffees I enjoy the sunny weather and the beautiful view towards the square infront of the café. Suddenly a man dressed in shabby clothes who looks like a beggar comes in throught the door and kindly asks
‘Do you have a suspended coffee ?’
It’s simple - people pay in advance for a coffee meant for someone who can not afford a warm bevarage. The tradition with the suspended coffees started in Naples, but it has spread all over the world and in some places you can order not only a suspended coffee, but also a sandwitch or a whole meal.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have such cafés or even grocery stores in every town where the less fortunate will find hope and support ? If you own a business why don’t you offer it to your clients… I am sure many of them will like it.

Why has Tumblr taught me more about basic living than all of my previous schooling experiences combined
Living Barbie doll. Former Ukrainian women has lived to perfect her look and be a life size version of her favorite childhood toy Barbie. Only at age 23, Valeria Lukyanova has undergone hundreds of cosmetic surgeries. To maintain her 17 inch waist, she subsists only on fruit and vegetable juices. After being on this liquid diet only, she is hoping to subsist on light and air only. “I always try to perfect myself further both inside and out, because I think perfection has no limits”

This is sad…just really fucking sad.
I honestly like this. She found something she loved and made it her everything; it became her life.
