'Goat yoga' is a thing - and hundreds are lining up for it

quote [ It's actually a little hard to believe we, as both a goat- and yoga-loving society, have slept on this concept for so long. Leave it to Lainey Morse of Albany, Oregon to realize something as glorious as goat yoga. ]

Trapping Self-Driving Cars with Ritual Circle Magic

quote [ Is it a silly prank, a Pagan ritual, or a genius discovery about the next era of mass transit? In a picture posted by artist James Bridle, a car is sitting in the middle of a parking lot has been surrounded by a magic salt circle. In the language of road markings, the dotted white lines on the outside say, "Come On In," but the solid white line on the inside says, "Do Not Cross." To the car's built-in cameras, these are indomitable laws of magic: Petrificus Totalus for autonomous automobiles. ]

Who needs UBI when we can defeat our future robot overlords by tricking them into thinking we're wizards.

Now where could my pipe be?

quote [ When I was 18 -- 18 years old -- I saw for the first time in my life. I saw a vision of clarity. I saw a comic strip -- a three panel comic strip, that, though simple as it seemed, changed me. Changed my being. Changed who I am. Made me who I am.

Enlightened me. ]

Americans raise $600,000 to rebuild burned Texas mosque

quote [ A Texas community has rallied behind its Muslim residents after their mosque burned to the ground shortly after President Donald Trump signed into effect a "Muslim ban" on refugees and others from seven Muslim-majority countries.

Though it is unclear how the mosque caught fire, an online fundraiser seeks to raise $850,000 to rebuild Islamic centre. ]

So shines a good deed in a weary world. A small noble act, like a lone candle, seems to shine more brightly in a darker place. It is more precious and more dire.

Vatican condom row: pope prevails as Knights of Malta chief resigns

quote [ tl;dr official in a Catholic order gives condoms to the poor, gets fired by head of order. Pope orders an investigation, head of order refuses to cooperate, Pope fires head of order. ]

Lest you think this is a sign of the church shifting to the left, you should know the official didn't know his people were giving out condoms. Once he found out, he shut down 2/3 programs, and only left the last open because it provided other vital services.

quote [ A father and son accused of raping a teenage girl over a three-year period and keeping her shackled in a basement have made it clear that they don?t have faith in the law or in the people who practice it.
