Posture Pillow, More Like Imposture Pillow, AMIRITE?! Because Of The Study? Fine, I'll See Myself Out.
Darlings! I hope your sleep was restful, your coffee is hot, and all your cake mixes are individually-sized.
Thank you Friend of the Missive Alex R-M for sharing this to the Odd Salon Something Weird group: The Squirrel Census Answers a Question You Weren’t Asking. Yea, but did the rats-with-better-haircuts answer a citizenship question? Ugh, that was such a lazy joke, I'm not proud of myself, I feel bad about that now.
I regret to inform you that the study I shared about smartphones giving us horns was written by a Chiropractor selling posture pillows. Don’t worry, my writers’ room has now lost their snack privileges for that EGREGIOUS source research oversight.
This headline is 100: Breast Milk Is Only Free if We Think Women’s Time Is Worthless. And terrifying stat I learned from this Slate piece: “Today in the U.S., one-quarter of mothers return to work less than 2 weeks after giving birth.”
Per usual, we should be listening to Catherine Rampell at the Washington Post: “We should be laser-focused on newly discovered private emails between a high-ranking census official and a GOP operative, and what they reveal about a long-term Republican conspiracy to rip political representation and financial resources from Democrats and people of color.”
OK, this NYC Airbnb slumlord story is genuinely scary (and part of why I gravitate towards hotels when it is just me on the road…): “The inspectors smelled gas and called the fire department, which found a gas leak … The illegally constructed extra rooms lacked required exits, sprinklers, and fire alarms, “rendering apartment unsafe to occupy,” the documents say.”
Y’all are lovely. Be kind to each other, mmmkay?
