Over to You: Robotic Walmart Bees, Grizzly Bear Invasions, Why You're Mad at the GoT Producer Dudes
Sweethearts, I guess I wasn’t great on the internet yesterday, because I didn’t share much with my Instapaper. But luckily, y’all are delightful news nerds who never fail to send me great stuff, so let’s turn it over to a few of you to fill your tabs this morning.
Friend of the Missive Adam sends along the news that “Walmart is applying for a range of patents using drones to automate farming,” with which he included the following email that basically sums up my 2019 experience (and yes, I have permission to share this, I’m no narc, narcs.)
FotM Colin—who also shared yesterday’s piece about babies named after Game of Thrones, a dastardly omission of source reporting on my part. The typewriter monkey has been appropriately flogged— shares a meditation on What Is Writing, Exactly?
BotM (brother of the Missive) Ben sends along this long tale of Grizzly Bears in British Columbia’s Bella Coola Valley, which of course reminded me of a time a Canadian ranger in Waterton ever so politely asked us to move along because a baby bear meant a Mama bear close behind, ready to eat your face.
FotM Schuyler shared this thread that might explain why you’re SUPER peeved at Game of Thrones right now (word nerds FTW! Also: I'm still mad.)
And FotM Katelyn shared my current spirit gif, and so I share it with you.
Hey, be kind to each other, won’t you?
