ESPN ran this wonderful interactive spread about the evolution of the Florida State helmet. So I decide it to make it a GIF. Enjoy.

Evolution of The Seminoles

Since the start of Florida State’s football program 67 years ago, the Seminoles have sported more than 20 styles of helmets, among the most in the NCAA. They’ve included leather headgear, hand-me-downs from the University of Tampa and a black “warrior” one-off. The tomahawk has appeared on most of them, but the golden, spear-clad design, created by former head coach Bobby Bowden, still endures-it’s going into its 38th straight season.

3 stories you should be reading

Happy Friday! Here are three stories that have caught my attention today:

  • MSN Messenger is Deadsome loved it, some hated it, some chose AOL’s AIM over it, but bottom line MSN Messenger was one of those messaging apps willing to take a chance on new services, third party plug-ins (talk about emoji collections), and connectivity - especially for those who had contact outside the United States. 

  • Slow day at work? Vox is reporting on the benefits of "coffee naps." That is right, drink coffee, take a nap, and BOOM! extra energy. Sounds crazy? Well, it is. But as Vox states:
    To understand a coffee nap, you have to understand how caffeine affects you. 
  • NOM NOM NOMWant to eat Taco Bell for the rest of your life? The fast food company is offering residents of certain cities a chance to win $10,000 gift cards if they find a SPECIFIC dollar. That is, a dollar with a specific serial number. Be sure to check those wallets!

Just a quick column catching up with one of our faves Jeremy Whitley princelesscomic and the newest project he’s working on. Together with artist Heather Nunnlley imaginetheending, they have created an unique new comic focused on one Gianna Delrey, a young undocumented worker living in an America city in the not too distant future. It’s a place where she lives as a second class citizen—something akin to a crime. Illegal looks to be a sci-fi treat with a very important theme behind it.
