From the bookmarks

Of course dinosaurs and humans never co-existed - dinosaurs went extinct 65 million years before humans developed, and the CBC knows it, as do all paleontologists. 
But no scientist wants to put their job on the line with our nutty right-wing government over such a stupid issue, just because the CBC is trying to play Got-ya! with Scott Moe:

Remembrance Day was Friday - here are some tweets I noticed especially:

This is the kind of stuff that I love about Twitter and I hope we can figure out some way or some place to keep it, in spite of how Musk is trying to destroy it:

The national networks and the Washington media were so quick to deride Biden's "saving democracy" speeches this fall, but it turns out that the American public took him seriously - Biden named and shamed Trump and the Republicans for trying to get MAGA-fascists elected, and America was listening: Some of the MAGA people running were very creepy -- in the end, most of them didn't get elected.

I don't know if this is a real account or not, but wouldn't it be hilarious if this really was Laura Ingraham's brother? In Ukraine, this was a beautiful moment: Twitter is full of videos showing how happy the people of Kherson are to greet the Ukrainian troops - I saw one describe it as a "Liberation of Paris" moment. 
One of the reasons I am so happy that the Dems have kept control of the Senate (and maybe also the House) is that it means Ukraine will continue to get US support. Here is the Lily-Tweet debacle in all its glory - Musk is like a spoiled child bashing a new toy into the ground then crying because it broke: And things went downhill from there. 

Finally, GO HUSKIES!
