These Christian Louboutin platform heels are embroidered to look like a motherboard–isn’t that clever and quirky and fun?–and they can be yours for a mere $1695, which happens to be the same price as a brand new MacBook Pro. I know, I know, it seems like an astronomical sum, but it’s actually not that bad considering that you can use these Louboutins to watch movies, work remotely from anywhere in the world, complete ambitious graphic design projects, download music, and Skype with your friends. Oh. Wait a second. I just re-read the description and it turns out these shoes can’t do any of that. They look like a computer, and cost as much as a computer, but they’re just shoes. Now I’m confused. And kind of sad. [Racked]

“We’re working on some things. He knows his colors and his shapes. He still gets seven when he counts the toes on one foot — he really likes seven right now! He likes it when I recite Pi. And I’m trying to teach him the quadratic formula. He hasn’t quite gotten it yet. It’s sung to the tune of ‘Pop Goes the Weasel.’”

Danica McKellar aka Winnie Cooper from “The Wonder Years,” has successfully transitioned from sitcom star to math missionary and author of best-selling books such as Math Doesn’t Suck, and now she’s teaching her 23-month-old son Draco (god, best name ever) some algebraic basics. Is it wrong that I’m a bit relieved to find out that a two-year-old hasn’t quiiiiite gotten a grasp on the quadratic formula yet? It took me a while to memorize it when I was in high school, even when my math teacher brought in a guitar and taught us the song, which is now stuck in my head (“The opposite of B / plus or minus the / square root of B squaaaaared…”). Thanks a lot, Draco. [People]

Finally, A Designer Fashion Collection For Marine Biologists!

A lot of times I’ll glance through the season’s runway collections and think, Isn’t anyone thinking of the marine biologists?! Like Christopher Walken’s “SNL” character demanded more cowbell, I say, “More bedazzled lobsters and embroidered whales!” And finally–finally–a designer has stepped up to the plate. Thom Browne’s S/S 13 menswear collection is chock full of sea life, like this whale-embellished vest. Click through to see a few more ocean-inspired looks! [Style Bubble]

If there are two things I love in this world, it’s the mail system and vintage travel ephemera. If I had to choose a third thing to add to my love list, it would be miniaturized versions of things (coming in a distant fourth would be my boyfriend, tied with lasagna). So as you can imagine, these teeny tiny air mail envelope earrings, which are made to order by an Etsy jewelry maker, are pretty much my life dream status. Someday I’ll wear these babies to take a trip around the world. With my mailman. [$8, Etsy]

When you find yourself in times of trouble...

On July 15th, Mike Massé’s infant son Noah was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. As the family scrambled to find the best care for their son, and the medical bills started piling up, Mike came up with a creative way to raise some extra money: he recorded an acoustic cover of The Beatles’ song “Let It Be” and posted it on YouTube and iTunes, where people could make donations or purchase the song to support Noah’s fight against cancer. Mike’s cover is beautiful and heartbreaking, and while his efforts have been fairly successful so far (the song recently reached #1 on the Netherlands iTunes charts), let’s not forget the underlying tragedy that amidst something as earth-shattering as a child’s cancer diagnosis, a grieving father must ask for donations to help save his son’s life. As Xeni Jardin of Boing Boing pointed out, “Cancer is one tragedy. The way our country treats people with cancer, even when they’re little babies, is another.” [Let It Be For Noah]

Did Michael Phelps Fart In The Louis Vuitton Bathtub?

Olympic swimmer/world record breaker/real life superhero Michael Phelps now has another title to add to his impressive resume: Louis Vuitton model. The legendary athlete and alleged retiree is starring in the latest round of Louis Vuitton “Core Values” ad campaigns, shot by Annie Leibovitz. One of the photos shows Phelps reclining in a bathtub, wearing goggles and a Speedo, showing off his amazing body and—wait, is that a fart bubble between his legs? OK, OK, so it’s probably just a weird shadow or the outline of a drain or something, but I kind of wish it was a fart, if only because, as my boyfriend put it, “That would make his facial expression so much funnier.” [Fashionista]
