This Tweet is trending because it is hilarious. A lawyer goes before a judge on Zoom and cannot figure out how to change his filter from showing him as a cat. Follow the hashtag #catlawyer because it’s great.
President Trump’s defense attorney, Bruce Castor made his opening arguments in the impeachment trial on Tuesday and it was a bit nonsensical. He admitted that he changed what he was planning to say because the House of Representatives had made such a good case.
So he’s winging it. Okay. He could really blow it but it still seems like Democrats won’t wrangle enough Republicans to vote for impeachment. But you never know. In fact, some say that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is subtly encouraging fellow Republicans to vote in favor of impeachment, likely to bar Trump from running for public office again.
As an aside, people online were wondering about co-council for President Trump, attorney David Schoen. He covered his head with his hand every time he took a sip of water. This is because he is an Orthodox Jew and common practice in that faith is to cover the head when eating or drinking. Schoen was without a yarmulke so he improvised to demonstrate his faith. We did not know that you could improvise a yarmulke. You learn something new every day!

Missing explosives. That is not a phrase you want to hear but that is exactly what is being investigated in the U.S. Marine Corps base in San Bernardino County, California.
The Marines notified the nearby sheriff’s department that explosives were missing from the base but the Marines did not ask for help investigating. The Naval Criminal Investigative Service is taking the lead.
It was not clear what kind of explosives or how many have gone missing.
Salesforce is embracing the disrupted office environment permanently. In a blog post on Tuesday, the company says that “the 9-to-5 is dead” and that it will now allow employees flexibility in creating a schedule that works for them.
Some employees will be allowed to remain fully remote if they do not live near an office, an acknowledgment that many employees have moved away and can therefore stay where they are. Some employees will return to the office 1-3 days per week and a small population will work from an office between 4-5 days per week if their roles require it.
Facebook, Google and Twitter have already announced similar options.
1 in 30 million. That is the odds of catching a yellow lobster in Maine because they are so rare but one man did catch one and donated it to the University of New England. They have lovingly named it Banana.
5. That is how many subway knife attacks have occurred in New York City in the last week.
15%. That is how much housing prices were up in urban markets in the last three months. Home prices are booming across the country in suburban markets too.
$375,000. That is how much the Super Bowl Streaker won by placing a bet in Las Vegas on whether someone could pull this off. He was arrested for trespassing and we hope charged with something that makes it illegal to bet on yourself doing something that endangers others and then profiting by actually doing it. He’s an idiot.
Pre-pandemic, alcohol-related diseases were mostly reserved for older adults. Now, doctors say that they are seeing this in people 40 and under and they call this “alarming.”
Drinking alcohol can cause fatty liver, inflamed liver, cirrhosis, which is scarring of the liver, as well as high blood pressure, mental health problems, poor gut health, disturbed sleep…you know this. But what you might not have known was that lockdowns and imploding economies have exacerbated these problems and sped them up in younger and younger people. The RAND corporation found that alcohol consumption was up almost 30% during the pandemic.
Take it easy out there, folks. Truly. Try a hot tea and early bedtime some nights.
A new study shows that human hormones change with the seasons. Scientists studied the bloodwork of 3.5 million people and found that the chemicals that control human functions all peak at different times of the year.
The sex hormones, for instance, peak in winter: testosterone, estradiol, and progesterone peak in late winter or spring. The same phenomenon of seasonal hormone changes has been observed in other mammals such as arctic reindeer.
This is evidence that we are far more connected to nature than we might have thought and should maybe give us pause about moving to outer space.
