What if I told you your morning cup of coffee contained within it the chemistry of the universe?

Indeed, your simple latte is the perfect way to learn about some of the chemical reactions that fuel the universe.

One of the wonderful things about being a lifelong learner is that the world around you is constantly becoming more interesting. Learning more about the world that surrounds us and the way it works makes even the most mundane things far more intriguing.

So, back to that cup of coffee containing the secrets of the universe.

Today, we are sharing a video with you from the YouTube channel Reactions, that shows us how much there is to learn in even the most average seeming morning routine.

See what I meant about being a lifelong learner? Cool things are everywhere!

I watch something like this and am reminded of how cool even the simplest things can be. How all around us there are little wonders of nature, science, physics, and so much more!

It’s hard not to see the world as an amazing place if you know more about it, and when you know there is more to appreciate. Not to mention, knowing a little bit about a lot of things empowers you to make more educated decisions on a daily basis.

If we all knew what happens to a plastic water bottle when we neglect to recycle it how would our behavior change? If we understood our place in the span of Earth’s history in easy to understand terms would we view our impact on the planet differently? How much more wonder would we see all around us every day if we just knew where to look?

There are so many reasons to celebrate this amazing world and the best way to do that is to simply stay curious!

Stay beautiful & keep laughing!


Explore endless reasons for celebration!

Every day we feature an article, on any subject under the sun, that proves it’s still an amazing world! After three years, we have amassed an incredible archive of reasons to see the world in a positive light. The best way to explore that archive is to try out our Surprise Me button over in the sidebar! Give it a try!

You can join us on our mission to prove that it’s still an amazing world by supporting us on Patreon, where you can also get access to exclusive content.
