A rapidly cooled molten glass drop that destroys a bullet that hits it, before it explodes itself, but (surprise!) not from the bullet impact.

An amazing discovery, where a mathematical model of a material existed before the material itself, and 3D printing allowed to verify the model which is so generally applicable that its structural properties translate seamlessly from the atomic level into macro structures.
Science FTW!

Wow!
A team of researchers at MIT has designed one of the strongest lightweight materials known, by compressing and fusing flakes of graphene, a two-dimensional form of carbon. The new material, a sponge-like configuration with a density of just 5 percent, can have a strength 10 times that of steel.

Thank you, San Francisco, for standing with the LGBT community, women, Muslims (including refugees) and people of all religions, African-Americans, and every other group sure to be marginalized and harassed under the Trump administration.

Hard to believe that is has been twenty-five years already ...

+Enno Lenze war in Kurdistan und berichtet von den Irrnissen des Kriegs dort.

Irgendiwe hat er es geschafft, sich dort genügend Reputation aufzubauen, dass er (vergleichsweise) sicher dort reisen kann.

Zur gleichen Zeit sitzt die deutsche Waffenlobby in Oberndorf (Wahlkreis von Volker Kauder, CDU) und anderswo in ihren Villen und zählt grinsend das Geld, das sie mit Waffenexporten in den Nahen Osten scheffelt.

Ach ja, +BMW, wenn ihr mal richtig, richtig gute PR haben wollt, spendiert Ako eine saubere Reparatur für seinen 7er BMW.

Ich war wieder an der IS-Front in Kurdistan (Irak). Ich Reise dort auf eigene Kosten hin und Berichte, statt Urlaub irgendwo anders zu machen. Hier ist mein Bericht von vergangener Woche. Es geht um den Kampf der Peschmerga, Flüchtlinge, politisches Gerangel und den nächsten Kampf, der nach dem IS kommt. Eure Shares sind mein Lohn also teilt es fleissig!

... it has only just begun ...
 
It's a bit of a meh wake-up when you've got an oily businessman demonstrably lying every step of the way, and still getting his way.
 
When you wake up to the thought that maybe, the point of how the vote went was to say, "Yo, you've ignored our pain for years and years, now we're spreading it around so you'll learn. Either we'll all get better, or we'll all go bust. You'll no longer ignore us. Why should we be afraid of smashing this country to pieces when it's really mostly your stuff, because ours has been in pieces for as long as we can think?"
 
When we might be at the "Some men just want to watch the world burn" point, because it is no longer their world.
 
When it turns out that the promises were so wishy-washy when they weren't contradictory that a lot of people aren't even sure what exactly they voted for.
 
When the day after a vote that everyone assures me wasn't about race sees a spike in racial abuse, when those who have been losers of globalization and made fun of show us that every good farm has an ax, and that it can be used to destroy as well as to create.
 
Funny that way how we associate hatchets with Vikings, not blighty, when the English speaking world seems so much better at taking off its nose to spite its face.

As someone said somewhere in the comments:

I love that he's been sitting on this for 8 years. Some serious dedication to the art of long-form trolling.

Yes, it is "just a symbol", but still ...
+IBM sets an important signal in the current communication climate on diversity issues.
A good reason to be proud of my employer.
 
We unveiled a new symbol of IBM’s commitment to diversity, tolerance and inclusion. http://ibm.co/2iVWkR7

Needed that to at least pretend to start a relatively normal day.
