the lincoln project is the #nevertrumper republicans without a home superpac. they seem to be putting up the most viral videos with a little bite so far. wouldnt go so far as to call it art but im all for the consistent mockery with such a willing subject.

50 years later, Oregon honors exploding whale with park name.

After nearly 100 years, Eskimo Pie ice cream will get a new name.

"We are committed to being a part of the solution on racial equality, and recognize the term is derogatory," Elizabell Marquez, head of marketing for parent company Dreyer's Grand Ice Cream, told Reuters and the Wall Street Journal in a statement.

The chocolate-covered vanilla ice cream bar joins brands such as Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben's in overhauling long-used names and marketing strategies considered racially offensive.

low turnout at the tulsa trump event apparently due to a concerted effort by teens & others organizing via social media to obtain tickets in order to essentially punk trump via large number of no-shows. i thought his million ticket request was bluster but they just got fooled big time. i think last week k-pop fans (not sure if it was at the urging of the bands) overwhelmed a pro-trump hashtag with clips of their favorite bands. it seems this is related. pretty hilarious but can only guess what kind of blowback it will cause if this tactic is gets abused by both sides. not that bots and trolls havent already scuttled useful discourse online.

now watching a k-pop playlist is an act of resistance instead of that, uhh, other thing.

the great is not quite great but very good. if you enjoyed the favourite then you will probably enjoy this as they were written by the same dude (too lazy to look it up) though it is perhaps a bit overlong. on hulu.

The list of once-innocuous things that we now fear - hugs, handshakes, surfaces - just got longer. A new study found that flushing a toilet releases a plume of aerosols that can linger long enough to be inhaled by the next person, or land elsewhere in the bathroom.

Using simulations, the researchers showed that the clouds can send coronavirus particles up to three feet high. A single flush produces about 6,000 tiny droplets and even tinier aerosols.

Previous research has found viable particles in infected people's feces, and while the virus prefers the lungs and respiratory tract, it has also been known to settle in the small intestine. The degree to which toilets contribute to transmission remains unknown, but you can take precautions: When possible, close the lid before you flush, and wear a mask in public or shared bathrooms.

Someone in PDX left their pig at the demonstrations.....

"Thank you to the many thousands of Portlanders who demonstrated tonight without violence. Your voice is powerful, and I am with you," said Portland Police Chief Jami Resch. "While your actions did not get the attention and coverage of the other events downtown, I want you to know we see you and we hear your message. To all of our Bureau members and mutual aid partners, I am grateful for your continued efforts and service. To my staff, to our partner agencies, and to the many other thousands of people who worked to keep tonight safe, thank you. I have had many conversations with demonstrators and community leaders over this past week. I am inspired and encouraged by their wisdom and their guidance."
