This is so, so funny: The BBC’s Andrew Cotter had an ‘online meeting’ with his dogs and it’s glorious.

From C. Lee, and it's an excellent read: The real Lord of the Flies: what happened when six boys were shipwrecked for 15 months.

From Wally, and it's a fascinating, obscure story: The $60,000 Telegram That Helped Lincoln End Slavery. Taking the piss out of universities, and effectively: University Title Generator. Some of these pictures are amazing: Life in the Landscape: Great Horned Owls. This is so on point (McSweeney's, of course): Sure, the Velociraptors are still on the loose, but that's no reason not to reopen Jurassic Park. This is excellent: The Hidden Rules of Conversation | Tom Scott.
