Spring has finally arrived, and if you’re still afraid to/skeptical about going outside, you can celebrate the thawing of what seemed to be a never-ending winter with these beautiful aerial photographs taken from a hot-air balloon. If you’d prefer to wander city streets (still, from within your computer), check out these anonymous artistic characters adorning the roads of Chicago, Barcelona and London. Finish off your virtual tour of the mindlessly breathtaking with these stunning videos of Antarctica’s landscape.
The best part of the warm weather is being able to do things outside with your friends again, but this article makes a strong case for taking on some activities alone. One potential activity would be to attend the infamous Rattlesnake Rodeo and record all of the disasters that have to be covered up in order to keep something like this legal.

Finally: do you dream of making memes? Do you want to achieve digital fame and become master of the Internet for a couple of days?
