Today's Mighty Oak


Alright, let’s see what we have today. First up, a neat animation showing the world’s tallest statues. I was blown away!

A small island is looking for a bartender (and innkeeper and groundskeeper), which also makes you the king, by custom!

National treasure Jeff Goldblum, reacting to Jeff Goldblum impressions:

Here is a sentence I never thought I’d read, but honestly makes a lot of sense: Jason Mantzoukas is voicing Tommy Lee’s penis in Hulu’s “Pam & Tommy”

The Washington Blade is the first LGBT+ publication to be given a permanent seat in the White House briefing room!

A new comedy pirate show from HBO is coming in March, and it looks fun (and has Leslie Jones)!

Amazon’s Lord of the Rings series finally has a name: The Rings of Power

The famously celibate, and chose his own name after the saint renowned for speaking with animals, says not having kids and instead raising animals is selfish. I just cannot.

And finally, the trailer for Moon Knight dropped:



Alright, let’s see what we have today. ¬†First up, Sweden’s recycling programs are so good, they’ve run out of trash.

Are you allergic to cats, but your significant other loves them?  Science may be able to save your relationship.

A teaser for the new season of American Horror Story:

I’ve tried to explain it before, but the Good Men Project does a great job talking about the concept of “family of choice.”

I have a different story to link to about Pope Francis’ comments, but a great follow up from the head of the HRC can be found here.

That’s it for now, short update. ¬†Have a great one!



Alright, let’s see what’s going on.

First up: SEE?!?! ¬†I’M IN DEMAND:

The (red band) trailer for the new Kick Ass movie, which I can’t wait for!

Instead of playing March Madness, you should play Star Wars March Madness.

I’m taking this as a sign that I would be a good parent. ¬†Because I still have my parent’s set (and it goes away after we’ve been drinking, we’re not stupid)

Awesome typography/science posters.  A favorite:

You can tell the haters are really reaching for straws, when they’re attacking random swaths of all kinds of people: for adopting children. ¬†And just remember, NOM is a certified hate group, hopefully this will make some other people notice.

So, my thoughts on the new pope: it’s awesome that he took the name Francis, as he’s one of my favorite saints. ¬†Also cool that he’s a Jesuit, although I think that I always heard they had the sterotype of buying lots of land and making lots of money, which is the opposite of Pope Francis, who rode the bus to work! ¬†Now, just like the other 114 cardinals, he still hates the LGBT community, women and you know, anyone who’s different, not that I expected anything different though. ¬†More importantly, the new Archbishop of Caneterbury is enthroned on Thursday!

Because adding Batman is awesome:

E. L. James, the “author” of 50 Shades of Grey, is publishing a writing guide. ¬†Excuse me as I go throw up.

Awesome note from a dad to his son.  It popped up in my newsfeed at work and I teared up a little bit:

This of course, comes after Rob Portman, sitting Senator from Ohio comes out for Marriage Equality. ¬†You know, when it affects his son. ¬†Yes, we’re happy that he’s supporting equality, but you should be able to see the need for equal rights without it personally affecting your immediate family.

Sooooooo, at the big conservative political gathering last week, there was a real life, true racist walking around. ¬†Now to be fair, there are crazy people everywhere, but it’s fun to point this out.

John Green fills us in:

That’s it for now, have a great one!
