We have made it to another Friday, hooray!
From Julie: This art machine traps your arm until someone comes along to free you. I think I would panic and probably break the machine. Or my arm. Possibly both.
From Cassandra: Psychedelics might indeed take your mind to a higher state of consciousness.
Also from Cassandra: The myth of “making a superbaby” and one mother’s experience.
From the Awl: Eleanor Roosevelt is inspiring, so they created the EleanorBot to Tweet quotes from her every few hours. I was obsessed with Eleanor when I was young, so of course I think this is awesome.
From FiveThirtyEight: what’s the mortality rate like in your U.S. county? This is a fascinating interactive chart which shows the trends from 1980 to 2014. You can even narrow it down by type of cancer.
From Twitter: The Redneck Revolt is a bunch of good ol’ boys and girls who actually care about their fellow boys and girls, regardless of sexual orientation, place of birth, color of skin, etc. It’s kind of amazing and inspiring.
Have a spiffy weekend, everyone. See you next week.
