Saturday: Hili dialogue https://t.co/htMC6ONoe2

Quoted @kougaku

This is the spinning dancer illusion made by the blackest paint. Does it look clockwise? or counterclockwise? https://t.co/epIzA5eX1D

Watch to the end to see how you've been fooled. https://t.co/V6yuIfvnIp

A once-a-year event—the mass flowering of night-blooming cereus—is starting now: a report from Kelly Houle https://t.co/wyA2noOtD2

A powerful ad about the Big Baby from Republican Voters against Trump. https://t.co/eUYWHZnxgf

Quoted @washingtonpost

The last American to collect a Civil War pension has died https://t.co/czwQt0faOL

Yes it's true, and she got $73/month as the impaired daughter of a Civil War vet! Hard to believe that that war wasn't that long ago after all. https://t.co/kOa6DJoEVx

Quoted @ddale8

Trump's was asked how to address the problem of low trust in the police among African Americans. Here's the transcript of his response. https://t.co/Z5sArhvCJX

It's shameful that nearly half of Americans voted for a brain-dead moron for President. Get a load of this mind dump: https://t.co/ROXw30olPP

Quoted @BBCSpringwatch

Believe it or not this isn’t an ant at all! It is a wasp mimicking an ant and is called the Methocha articulata! #Springwatch https://t.co/ICiZ5uG7kg 💚 https://t.co/1UssNNmbpX

One of the most remarkable insect mimics I've seen. The wingless females are parasitic on tiger beetle larvae. Why do they mimic ants? Perhaps to fool tiger beetles who might be afraid of "waspy" wasps? https://t.co/C3puRwFCCC

Some wasps, like potter wasps, build nests! They do this alone and, as their name suggests, they are master craftsmen. #Springwatch https://t.co/ICiZ5uG7kg 💚 https://t.co/G0l8RsDGxf

Friday duck report: pictures and videos https://t.co/MNSQG2A8i8

The Kalven Report of 1967, supposedly ensuring the political neutrality of the University of Chicago https://t.co/dbzarykUgt

Quoted @yashar

The New York Times has just issued this statement about the op-Ed. @JBennet and @jimdao you need to resign. https://t.co/lbMCL13Si5

I disagree strongly with Cotton's call for using the military to police Americas cities, but there are several reasons why he should have been allowed to publish it in the NYT, including seeing why Republicans want this and formulating counterarguments. The NYT is full of cowards https://t.co/2Y7vpk4DcC

A unifying speech by Obama on the George Floyd situation and its consequences https://t.co/2QWdkhEx8d

Quoted @shelleypchan

How’s this for a spontaneous metaphor for 2020: My mother recently gave my niece and nephew a caterpillar for their birthday so they could watch it become a butterfly... ...but instead it exploded with parasitic wasp larvae that had eaten it alive from the inside

Oh dear. . . . well, it's a different lesson in biology. https://t.co/BRryjQqQyi

Friday: Hili dialogue (and Mietek monologue) https://t.co/lyOflxuj0H

Talk about form following function! https://t.co/vn5sLIXLR6

Quoted @bariweiss

The civil war inside The New York Times between the (mostly young) wokes the (mostly 40+) liberals is the same one raging inside other publications and companies across the country. The dynamic is always the same. (Thread.)

The NYT has been circling the drain for some time, along with other mainstream liberal media. Bari Weiss explains the problem, mentioning the invertebrate David Remnick, editor of the New Yorker. https://t.co/6WlJR1mIj5

Last duckling captured and rehabbed https://t.co/36Mp0AfpIH
