@NYMag I suspect the #oneyearafterthedivorce hashtag won't ever be as popular.@Akelaa yes!"I am creating a game, but you can't play the game. The game will play you." https://t.co/dkFIbEzYSOCongratulations, brilliant @BethComstock! Great move, @generalelectric! http://t.co/wR4nqp2PFg@verge You ask why does "America" reserve a special disdain for Kanye West by using examples of non-American petitions?@cetesse @BrandmanU congratulations!!

@pmarca That has moist in it so it doesn't count. Gallant effort.@pmarca Nevertheless you're welcome to try.@pmarca I don't know. I'm a Brooklyn (old-school, not hipster) Italian and my first job (ironically) was as a vulgarity censor.@pmarca That's the worst word I've ever heard. I mean, other than moist. No, it's worse than moist. http://t.co/vZYkRdA7k7@theodoragoss Georgiana!@theodoragoss Not Rappaccini's Daughter?! I totally misremembered.

Five young North Koreans with accordions play Take On Me. This is for you, @pomeranian99! http://t.co/XV6HcFMAv1PS. The trend of listing team names on Instagram reveals just how much work goes into these beautiful illusions.Before digital edits are made, it takes an entire *team* of people to create an image of a model who seems breezily flawless.@haleshannon @Tim_OConnell L O V EOverwhelmed with love and awe for @kathyeldon as Kenyans arrive on the scene for The Journey is the Destination. #DanEldonForever@FrancescaBirks thought of Arup when I saw this sky pool story...and it *is* designed by Arup! http://t.co/hbgc26Rkrd

@brainpicker @amandapalmer whoa!!!!Is there a site for people who know it's wrong to melt chocolate bars into croissants & call it lunch, but can't resist the urge? Sign me upWriting in the freshly weeded and pruned roof top garden at Science House. #ESB https://t.co/JCTELAmlxB@BenedictEvans yes, of course. What I meant is the "anti" whatevers are usually contributing to the very thing they most hate.@BenedictEvans that's true for almost every emotional political issue.If you're going to spend the day writing in a garden, make sure you weed and prune the whole thing first.
