Weekend link dump for August 2

Baby-crawling races are apparently more complicated than you might think.

Minivan evolution. Of course, as we know, all minivans were created less than 6,000 years ago.

Remains of four-legged snake discovered, strongly suggesting snakes evolved on land.

“On every major piece of public policy in which lives are taken needlessly, we don’t limit ourselves to empty prayers for the victims. We actually do something to stop it from happening again.”

“I’ve never seen a drunk squirrel before. He was sozzled.”

Nuke deal with Iran = McD’s in Tehran + much cleric freaking out.

“I am absolutely sure that the irony of what kicked the Fall of Cosby into high gear was Hannibal Buress, another man, calling Bill Cosby out on stage was not lost on these women, or women in general. The information was out there; women had been saying these things for years. They still needed a man to say it in order to have the world pay attention.”

The Bugs Bunny Sesquicentennial was this past Monday. Hope you enjoyed it.

Congrats to Jen Welter, the first woman to coach on an NFL team.

Donald Trump, evangelical hero. Insert your own “sanctity of marriage” joke.

“As it turns out, knowing when and how to apply lethal force in a potentially life-or-death situation is really difficult.”

RIP, Ann Rule, pioneering true crime author who wrote about Ted Bundy.

The Donald and La Sarah. It just makes sense.

“From 2011 to 2015, 468 voting restrictions have been introduced in 49 states. Half the states in the country have passed new laws making it harder to vote. None of this would have been possible if it wasn’t for the 2000 election in Florida.”

Killing a single lion in 2015 is mathematically equivalent to murdering 400,000 of the planet’s roughly eight billion people. And because Cecil’s six cubs will likely be killed by the next male to take over the pride, Palmer’s wayward arrow and days-later mercy shot may be as devastating to the lion population as the death of three million people would be to humanity.”

Windows 10 will share your WiFi key with your contacts unless you tell it not to.

“The situation is a startling example of a cash-strapped federal agency seeking to offload an expensive, world-class facility to the private sector—at the potential cost of compromising its ability to perform world-class scientific research.” Also, aliens may be involved. Seriously.

RIP, William R. White, Tuskegee Airman and humble hero.

“Now, with Pluto more than 18 million kilometers behind the New Horizons spacecraft, all I can say is: I want more. More new worlds, more first looks.”

RIP, Rowdy Roddy Piper, WWE wrestling legend.
