Britney Spears’ divorce from Sam Asghari feels like it’s probably going to get messy — there’s already a custody dispute over the dogs? — but for now, Spears is being both cryptic and not. “6 years is a long time to be with someone so, I’m a little shocked but … I couldn’t take the pain anymore honestly !!!” It’s certainly not the typical notes app statement. There’s also dancing involved. (Instagram)

It feels like maybe the otters have just had enough of being looked at like cuddly river kittens and they’re all, “Oh, hey, you guys know we’re friggin apex predators, right? Basically grizzly bears but smoller.” - (Celebitchy)

I want to give a shout-out to my amazing husband, who accomplished TWO long-term goals yesterday! One was to get his MBA, (which he did with a 4.0 GPA), and the other was to lose 155 pounds and he did it over 5 years, despite COVID, changing jobs, getting an MBA, and being diagnosed with MS. He’s fucking exceptional! I really like him and I’m going to keep him. That said… this really reminded me of him for some reason. - (TikTok)

My husband, the above-mentioned amazing one, and I are happily child-free, but we do have 5 young great-nieces and nephews. We only get to see them a couple of times a year and it’s always awkward at first because, if you don’t do it often, how do you talk to kids? - (VOX)

The ‘War on Drugs’ is an indisputable failure. We have to change how we look at addiction and how we treat people with addiction disorders. I carry naloxone in my purse. I hope I never need to use it but I have it in case I encounter someone who needs it and the EMS/First Responders aren’t there yet. I also carry an Epi-pen. No one would bat an eye at me for the second one; it should be the same way for the naloxone. - (Time)

Elon’s TwiXter followers might mostly consist of bots (and Natzis, probably)? Well, I for one am shocked. (Mashable)

I have no idea how I missed this back in December, but in case you missed it too, here you go! Can dogs (and probably cats) smell time? - (NPR)

So you’ve all probably seen the headlines about Netflix ending their DVD service (RIP, DVDs) and sending out extras to the last of their DVD subscribers. However, it doesn’t really look as fun as it initially appeared. - (The Verge)

Kayleigh appeared on the Smart Bitches Trashy Books podcast to talk about BookTok, the Seattle Kraken drama, celebrity gossip, and fandom conspiracies. - (Smart Bitches Trashy Books)

Also from Kayleigh - “The romance community has banded together for Romance for Maui, with an auction to raise funds for the survivors of the Maui wildfires. They’re so close to $75k, so consider donating or bidding now!” - (32Auctions)

When thinking about the human survivors of the Maui wildfires, also remember the sweet, furry, 4-legged ones. Here’s Roman to put a face to those precious babies.

BUT ALSO, Winston’s toe floof was just BEGGING to be seen!
