Today's Mighty Oak


Alright, let’s see what we have today. First up, these adorable parents who play a game of Mario Kart every morning to see who has to put on the kettle for their tea.

This dog responds to Harry Potter spells. Something to strive for in a pet!

A version of Fahrenheit 451 that can only be read when heat is applied to the pages.

Billy Porter is a treasure. He gives it to Kevin Hart and I’m all for it.

Christian Bale credits Satan for him being able to play Cheney. And it’s perfect.

Brazil elected their own far-right politician, and he spent his first day in power stripping rights from the queer community.

For something a bit lighter, here’s the Powerpoint presentation as to why Belle should have picked Gaston instead of the beast. Spoiler: The French Revolution.

The cast of The Magicians talks about their commitment to diversity, another reason to love that show!

Liberty Counsel, a hate group, is lobbying against an anti-lynching bill because it protects the queer community.

And in sweet, sweet hypocrisy, an anti-gay preacher wants you to know that he still hates gays, even though he was caught with sex workers.

Federal courts have blocked the horrific ‘citizenship’ question that was going to be added to the census.

The nominee for the next Attorney General ran HIV internment camps at Guantanamo.

In horrifying, saddening and infuriating news, the gay purge in Chechnya has resumed.

And after all of that horrible news, we need some comedy:



Alright, let’s see what I have this time.

First up, pretty amazing:

Bill Cosby himself is running polls to vote on the best sweaters from The Cosby Show.  That’s pretty cool.

KitKat does very well in social media, but gets schooled by Oreo, of course.

So awesome to see this song performed on Jimmy Fallon:

Starbucks CEO tells shareholders they’ll do the right thing and support marriage equality, and if they don’t like, it to sell.  Bravo.

And as we entre the final days before arguing before the Supreme Court, the American Academy of Pediatrics, outlines why it supports marriage equality.  They said the timing wasn’t planned, but honestly, it’s a bit suspect.  Hopefully that does not diminish their statement.

DuckTales is being remastered and rerelased.  And I heard that if it goes well, we’ll see more like this.  Cool nostalgia, although I hope the video game industry doesn’t turn into the movie industry, all old ideas:

That’s it for now, have a great one!



Alright, let’s see what we have today.  First up:

TNT is back with their stunts:

Musical port-a-potties.  Yes, you read that right.

Recordings are being made of Holocaust survivors, via hologram.  This is a great idea.

Physics defying amusement park:

Pantone color puns

Check out Google’s new offices in Tel Aviv, pretty awesome.

Lego’s pop culture riddles

A pen that tells you when you made a mistake.

External airbags to protect cyclists.

A museum is using special light bulbs to transmit data to people’s phones:

Ordering snow via your phone (for Christmas)

This is a cool idea: bringing the beach into your office.

Beautiful wood cityscapes:

Sculptures that appear only when viewed in cylindrical mirrors

And finally, real life Mario Kart:



Let’s give this a second try…(first time did not save and I lost everything).  Hey everybody!  Lots of fun links to pass on, and I’ll be updating The Great and Secret Show as well, so stay tuned for more later this weekend as well.

I’ve found a lot of old links (from a few months ago), so I’ll only be posting the relevant ones, hope you enjoy:

Sometimes life is funny.  And ironic.

I really hope the city decided to leave the chalk drawings:

I was in a conversation with a friend talking about the different names for groups of animals.  The obvious winner is a sedge of cranes.

Ever feel alone?  You got nothing on this guy!

Pittsburgh Sports and Mini Ponies is about exactly what you think, or at least their banner is.  The site is on Bloquin, so good luck trying to get it to display correctly or have a working RSS feed though.

I hate the Wesboro Baptist Church as much as anyone.  But I love that they tried to take on the San Diego Comic Con and lost, so bad (and this doesn’t even show the parade the attendees put on as a counter protest).  Strong language and logic that will make your head explode about eight times:

Here is a cool chart showing different aspects on covers of fantasy book.  I can’t embed it here, for some reason it breaks Joomla.  Sorry!

And really, at this point, you’re just showing off:

Okay, that’s it for this one, shorter update, but more to come soon!
