Trying to get in habit of posting more regularly, even if it's just links that I share elsewhere, because I can totally collect them in a text file throughout the day.

This T-shirt says "There's a million books I haven't read, but just you wait," and is $11 today (usually $20).

This Android puzzle game, Deus Ex GO, is $0.99 at present; I enjoyed Lara Croft GO, so a buck seemed a good risk.

The excellent @dog_rates has a video of the dogs of 2016 (does mention that a couple of dogs have died since their videos were taken).

This article about an 85-year-old marathoner has a really remarkable penultimate paragraph.

I think this rock might be alive. And angry. (Source.)

I will never actually make this no-knead bread, but let me pretend.

If there is a literal entrance to Hell, this is it.

This review of Steven Seagal's latest movie is a marvel.

Okay, that's enough procrastination for now.

This article about an 85-year-old marathoner has a really remarkable penultimate paragraph.

It makes sense to me. I did cross-country in high school. I got no competitive enjoyment out of it: I was not good at the sport, I never won anything, if I was lucky I came in only second or third to last. I ran a mile once in under seven minutes and that was a major milestone. I did not enjoy the experience of running, either: it made me feel even worse about my body than usual, I never experienced a runners' high, and it was not even physically elating in the same way as singing. I did not have friends on the team. I think the coach was bewildered that I didn't quit. I loved, however, having the ability to run five miles without needing to stop. I still miss it sometimes. And that was worth all the pain and hassle and tedium.
