Monday's Child is Full of Links




1.  Bananas.

2. Turtle has Lego wheels. Teenage mutant Lego turtles.

3.  Skippy and Murphy do this, too.

4.  Oh, like you've never wanted to smack a smug kayaker in the face with an octopus.  Because of course you want to. This seal rared up and did it, though.

5. The hunt is on in Flo-ROO-da. On the other hand, here is a Florida trifecta: 1. Baking cookies on a George Foreman grill, 2. while naked, 3. and then dealing with resulting fire by piling dry towels on the grill.

6.  The shopping cart dance, by tWitch

7.  Many US political institutions are anti-majoritarian....and that's a good thing.

8.  How to talk to women right now.  Ms. Knightley as Collette: always the same, or recognizably universal?

9.  Gallnippers. No, really, gallnippers. I don't think I've ever even seen one. Yikes.

10.  Gekko echo. And the place of profits

11.  Drunk hipsters on scooters. ELECTRIC scooters. It's the end of the world. Although maybe this is the end of the world. Either way, it's the end of the world.

12.  Stanton hits homer. Fan catches ball, hits Stanton.

13.  Gosarians. They are not Gosar worshippers. Although...well.

14.  Fewer bicycle commuters? Could it be....Uber?

15.  "Why the Worst Get on Top." Anyone who believes in statism after watching the event of the past week (month, year, decade, century) would need to explain why this won't just happen again and again.

16. Much of the history of Russian evil is written by the U.S.

17. Take a walk. I am very grateful to Skippy and Murphy, because without them I wouldn't walk enough.  Thanks, fellas. A sense of joy about something as simple as a walk is a big part of a good day.

18. Greg Weiner on Kavanaugh. Yes, exactly. It's sad, but BK is not funny, either. This, on the other hand, is hilarious.

19. Conservatism without classical liberalism is just dumb. Or dangerous. Or both.

20   One problem with the Metro is the "leadership" of the Metro. There really isn't any.

Grand Lagniappe: Kirk, the lady border collie, watches herself win a competition. With greetings to Paco, in Lubbock....
