Another citizen failed to show correct papers to the Polizei at Facebook. This one works there.

Locus Award winners. My favorite is Jo Walton's delightful What Makes This Book So Great, which along with a bunch of other deserving books was elbowed off the Hugo ballot by a slate including a collection of tweets by a guy who took advantage of the Charleston shootings to demonstrate that he can't even manage to be funny when he's being hateful and bigoted. Not that I'm bitter or anything.

Thanx to Tor.com.

ETA: I am being moderate.

Gendered emotions. I think "masculine" and "feminine" are as useful for describing emotions, behavior, etc., as "Caucasian" and "Negroid."

There appear to be people who actually like the Minions. No accounting for taste.

Thanx to Metafilter
