GoPro View of Cheetah Run

If you’ve ever wanted to see what it would look like if you were shrunken down and riding on the back of a cheetah while they were running, the Cincinnati Zoo has you covered.

Spoiler: It’s awesome.

Twitter Announces New Features!

Twitter Logo

Twitter has announced new enhancements to its service in a blog post today:

In the coming months we’ll make changes to simplify Tweets including what counts toward your 140 characters, so for instance, @names in replies and media attachments (like photos, GIFs, videos, and polls) will no longer “use up” valuable characters.

It’s great that Twitter is working on giving people more space for the meat of their tweets, and obviously a much better use of their time than trying to stem the tide of horrifying abuse that occurs on their platform every damn day. But, hey, now trolls can make each tweet chock-full of more hate, so I guess it’s a super-awesome thing!

Animaniacs Tour 2016

The New York Times reports that Rob Paulsen, Jess Harnell and Tress MacNeille will be touring the country to perform popular songs from “Animaniacs”:

History buffs might be glad to hear that Mr. Paulsen will perform a new verse of “Yakko’s World,” which was written before the Soviet Union broke up, in 1991. The song has been frequently nitpicked for its omissions and shortcuts, and the new verse will add any nations formed in the past 25 years.

“Animaniancs” is my favorite cartoon of all time, so they can just go ahead and take all my money for tickets right now, thank you very much.

And if you’re not familiar with “Yakko’s World”, (a) where have you been hiding all these years?! and (b) please see below.
