Someone online compared our current political situation to the first episode of (the newer) Battlestar Galactica, where the Cylons attack every 33 minutes. I agree. (And we don’t even have good jump technology, which makes it more exhausting.)
To counter this, however, there’s a marathon of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood going on right now, showing every episode from 1968 onward (click here to watch live, it's great). We watched a bunch of episodes last night and they are truly wonderful (and, in more than a few cases, truly weird).
The Bletchley Bar in London serves coded cocktails – you have to break the code in order to get the drink! (My dad would have absolutely loved this concept.)
The NMAAHC has a great post on five black women who bicycled over 250 miles in 1928. (With pictures!)
