I ate a 5" Snarf's sandwich tonight, unassisted and without notable discomfort.
This is a major milestone in my recovery process :-)

Any progressive activist and anyone involved in the Democratic Party who has not read Don't Think of an Elephant! should put it very near the top of their to-do list, above any political action that's longer-term than "this week."

Surgery was a success, and recovery (like the food I've been eating) was smoother than I'd expected.

My review of I'm Right and You're an Idiot, an interesting book about cleaning up toxic discourse in the public square.

Shoulders is a beautiful and powerful poem/song by Shane Coyczan that deftly weaves the mythic and the personal, the planetary and the individual.
"The most alarming part of the statement We are facing crisis isn't the word crisis it's the word we."

I think this cat is expressing an appropriate mix of wonder and dread as he peers over a celestial wonder. #WrongCaptions #feedly

Wow. I want to find the rest of this story.
Being able to stick a tongue out at people behind her probably comes in handy.

The DOCUMERICA project of the EPA had freelance photographers capture what America looked like in 1973. Not all of the pictures are polluted, and there are some beautiful places and interesting people. And then there's this prototype energy-efficient (electric?) car. It looks like a hoot to drive.

Prior to https://xkcd.com/1799/ I hadn't noticed the small "Central Western Time Zone" near the border of Western Australia and South Australia. The roughly 200 residents of the area are roughly halfway between Perth and Adelaide, so apparently they decided their clocks should be 45 minutes ahead of Perth and 45 minutes behind Adelaide.

This was also my first time reading about the Nullarbor (Latin for "no trees") Plain, which sounds like the sort of large and sparse desert that I would enjoy traveling through.

Three weeks ago, I left myself a note in Google Keep that says
Taiwan Oregon Mr TPP
I have absolutely no idea what that means.
