Days 37 and 38 of 1,461 (or 2,922)

But on the other side, it didn’t say nothing.

  • Native Americans are not genetically more susceptible to alcoholism. One of those “truths” that I learned long ago. (h/t Frequently Asked Questions)
  • Congress may be compromised. We need a special prosecutor now!
  • The White House might be forcing NASA to put astronauts on the inaugural flight of Orion. Because political meddling in space missions always ends well.
  • From Starts With a Bang, a great story on the politicization of one of Ben Franklin’s inventions, the lightning rod. Dumb Brits.
  • I really, really hope that Uber is as doomed as Jalopnik says it is. No one will mourn its demise.
  • Tom Perez and Keith Ellison are awesome, competent people. I’m glad to have them running things.
  • I shouldn’t do it, but it feels good. Eating fried chicken or posting about Bernie Sanders? Both.
  • The first drops of the deluge are falling. Every victory is worth celebrating!
  • A protest I participated in made the news!
  • RIP Bill Paxton. He was in good movies. 😦
  • “On This Day in LOTR” is a self-explanatory Twitter account. It’s excellent.
  • To end, another fantastic Wikipedia article (the picture is perfect): “Shrug.”
