With a range stretching from Argentina all the way up into the southern U.S., this incredible genus of ants has also mastered the art of rainforest skydiving, leaping from the canopy to avoid predators, only to steer themselves mid-flight right back onto the trunk of their home tree. And they do it with remarkable agility.

Eggsellentt. First Brad Pitt, now Johnny Depp. We're crossing the chasm: leaving the early adopter phase and entering early majority phase, aka celebrity emulation.

The momentum keeps building. Be cool. Buy American. Buy Tesla. #tesla #buyamerican #celebrity
 
Always drive safely.
" “Elon had a good sense of humour about it. The cop did not. He needed a humour chip. But it was a good time, nonetheless,” Depp said. We think perhaps it wasn’t so much the fact that Musk was speeding which caught the cop’s attention though: Depp was sat in the front passenger seat with Paul Bettany riding in his lap."
Ahead of Transcendence's general release this weekend, Johnny Depp lets slip the time he, fellow cast and Elon Musk were caught speeding in a Tesla Model S.

He's a great replacement for Letterman. His wit, bite, and grace are right up there. 

And perfect timing. The subject of the Colbert Report parodies are no longer in the highest office so the schtick, although still brilliant, was maybe not as relevant anymore.

Then, there was the recent problem with the missing context tweet.

It's time for a change. I just wonder if he's gonna get a Paul Schaffer and who that will be. #twt
Stephen Colbert will succeed David Letterman as the host of "The Late Show," CBS announced on Thursday.

The thrill of recently discovering a name for something I've had since I was a kid, #ASMR , has been killed by discovering all the marginal associations people have already made to it on the internet for their own personal gain.

I feel like Richard Dreyfus, in Close Encounters of the Third Kind, trying to figure out what is really happening but having to wade through charlatans claiming, "I saw Big Foot once". #twt #charlatan #asmr #whisperingfakes
