Vaguely ordered from funny to serious:
- The survivalist adventures of bearded Andrea Pirlo (you don't really have to know who he is to appreciate this. All you have to know is that he didn't have a beard and now he does.)
- NatGeo Photo Contest Winners (my favorite is the girl in the baobab forest)
- I just saw Bernie and it was awesome. You should watch it.
- Another side to the much-belabored Akin story: I feel like the exceptionally brave women who get pregnant from rape and (recognizing the child as a fellow victim rather than a perpetrator) don't get abortions are seriously overlooked. This article by one such woman, which says that in 31 states rapists can get paternal rights over the child, was horrifying. We need to recognize that up to 30% of women who become pregnant through rape keep the child, and protect them accordingly. (I've been seeing some outrage online about Paul Ryan calling rape a "method of conception". That's obviously not all it is, but it is unfair to these mothers to pretend that it is not one.)
