Small update, not small book. It’s an average length book.
Beautifully written piece by Rebecca Solnit. Link.
I did some more rambling on the 2 Sceptical Chaps podcast. Linky McLinkington.
I went on the 2 Skeptical Chaps podcast to bang on about Trump and Twitter and such. Here’s a link if your fancy is tickled.
Excellent work here from McSweeney’s.
I’ve tweeted about Donald Trump a lot – certainly more than is good for my mental well-being. Here’s thirty of them.
Saw this on Twitter the other day, posted by @Oireachtas_RX.
There’s a piece on the New York magazine website pondering the origin of popular jokes about Donald Trump. One of them’s about the idea that Trump looks like the villain in a movie where the hero is a dog. The writer traces its origin to a tweet from August 2015. He should have traced a bit harder. I tweeted it in May 2015 (and before, actually, but that was the popular one).
Ireland is having a referendum on May 22nd. The issue at stake is marriage equality. I was one hundred per cent certain that I was voting Yes. It seemed like such a no-brainer to me. Of course gay people should be allowed to get married. But I must say I have been given pause by the powerful arguments made by this oven glove. I’m in a tizzy now. My whole worldview has been challenged. So much to think about.
