Rand Paul’s 12+ hour filibuster about drones gets a succinct 43-word response.
Meanwhile, we have the transcript from the first seven hours of Paul’s filibuster, and that alone takes up over 100 pages.
A brilliant series of minimalist typographic tributes to scientists and their discoveries. I especially like the Copernicus one :)

Man, Malcolm in the Middle was a funny show.

Every creative person I know, including myself, is afraid that this is going to be us when we take a big creative risk.
I’d argue that if that’s NOT you after taking a big creative risk, you haven’t risked enough.
I mean, shit, she risked ridicule and gained a murderous grasp on her powers. Seems worth the risk to me.
Revolving Self-Portrait, c. 1865
This “revolving” portrait is important to history because it represents one of the first times someone made an image move on film. This is an early form of animation. Animation, such as motion pictures, is really just continuous photographs run in succession to give the illusion of movement. To think of doing this so early in photography’s infancy is rather ingenious.
The photographer and model was Felix Nadar, whose real name was Gaspard-Félix Tournachon (1820-1910), a French photographer, caricaturist, journalist, novelist and balloonist. He was the first person in the world to take aerial photographs and to use artificial light in photography while taking pictures of the catacombs in Paris.
