Come out to Bullseye Live! in LA on Wednesday night and you can see this whole awesome video. Plus Rob Corddry, Dan Harmon, Steve Agee, Sara Watkins and Andy Kindler. Get your tickets now.

I’ve watched this gif so many times that I think I’m contractually obligated to reblog.

This specimen is the only real fossil Deinonychus, a non-avian maniraptor, on display in the world. With its sickle claws and sharp teeth, Deinonychus was likely a formidable predator. Its extremely advanced wrists and shoulders provide strong additional evidence for the hypothesis that birds are a kind of dinosaurs. @jnsilva photographed this fossil in the Hall of Saurischian Dinosaurs #InsideAMNH

ha.

“I miss having eight, nine, ten hours a day to do work that could be done in three. I miss having a set time for “work.” If I was sitting at my computer in an office I was showing up and working. Talking was work. I miss that. All that talking about things that didn’t TRULY matter but we got to feel like they mattered, which is ideal. Low actual stakes, high imaginary stakes. Stakes only as high as your ego. And you get to say, “It’s work!” and you’re going to work and you’re getting paid and doing your job so you are good to go! You have done your job for the day, because you are sitting at your desk and replying to emails.”

Things I Miss About Having A Real Job | The Billfold

I’ve started and abandoned so many tumblr posts about this, about the weird floatiness of a patched-together freelance/teaching life. I’ve wondered why I’m so tired sometimes after fewer than eight hours of work. I’ve launched monologues at Tanner when he walked in the door at night, or found myself failing to form sentences in front of my students in class. This paragraph and this whole piece is just yes yes yes.

Looking to do some leaf peeping this weekend? It’s always peak fall at the American Museum of Natural History! Check out our new Pinterest board, Autumn at the Museum for a selection of our seasonal dioramas and exhibition items. 

I’ve got a 6000-word essay on everything that first diorama means. Spoiler: it’s how we’re to fight totalitarianism.

“I’d go so far as to say that the people who tell women to “just ignore” gendered criticism, bullying, and harassment — which I’m fine with lumping together, because they’re all components of a system that works together to repress women’s work — are asking women to collaborate in their own silencing. I’m not going to ignore it; I’m not even going to try.”

Why We Need To Fight Online Trolls, Not Just Ignore Them
