Here is this week’s list of poems, comic strips, essays, and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.
Siren Song. The imagery in this is fantastic.
Why Are Highly Educated Americans Getting More Liberal? Who else has noticed this trend? I sure have.
Substitutions 3. Reading the news would be so much more fun if everyone used this chart. The scientists section was my favourite one. Too funny!
These Ancient Trees Have Stories to Tell. I have a vague memory of my parents taking me to see a very old tree when I was a child. The word massive doesn’t even begin to describe how large the trunk was. Who else here has taken a road trip specifically to see something like that?
Blackflix: How the Netflix Algorithm Weighs Race. Every once in a while I dive deeply into Netflix to see if there are any movies they have on there that the algorithm hasn’t recommended to me yet for some reason. Even so, I wonder how many great shows I’ve missed over the years.
It’s the Billionaires vs. the Millionaires. These are the kinds of elementary school shenanigans that I’d expect to see from children. The fact that adults – most of whom don’t understand how ridiculous the whole thing is – are responsible for it is both humorous and depressing.
