Growing up I went to school #16, then school #45. That’s how Socialists do, y’all. And you know what? I think it’s a swell solution to the Respect Our Heritage™ bullshit Confederate aficionados like to shout about. But if America won’t go the number route, I’ll fully support naming all the schools after Obama. (Buzzfeed)

I have many issues with Silicon Valley and various tech companies, but it ain’t all bad: 3,000 skilled tech workers have signed up to help on campaigns of centrist and liberal candidates. Do good, nerds. (TechCrunch)

Ben & Jerry’s released a new flavor and it is imperative that I share this information. Coffee. Caramel. Marshmallow. *Homer Simpson drool gif*(Refinery29)

Roy Price, the disgraced Amazon executive, was in the midst of developing a TV show about a woman who was sold into sex slavery to a “psychotic Imperial Thai dwarf”. Red flag. All the red flags. (GQ)

Back in March, someone wrote in to Ask A Manager about their new employee who refused to go on overnight work trips because her husband wasn’t cool with it and “her religion required her to obey her husband”. *dies from laughter* *reincarnates* *gets back to P-Loving* The update came in today and, praise be, you want to read it. (Ask A Manager)

There is a reason we gave him the nickname Charming Potato. (Jezebel)

Trump’s nominee for a district judge said this in a speech: “Guess what? I attend a conservative Baptist church. We discriminate, alright. On the basis of sexual orientation, we discriminate”. How is he still lawyerin’? (Vice)

Scientists discovered a relationship between dyslexia and asymmetrical eye cones and there might be an easy fix. Science is fascinating! (Mental Floss)

Following in the age-old tradition of Everything You Loved As A Teen Turns To Sh*t, Nicholas Brendon continues to be an awful human. Oh, Xander. (Dlisted)

An 11-year-old girl invented a device that detects lead in water faster than any other device currently on the market. The future is female. (The Cut)

I go through a bottle of vanilla extract per week (it’s my sugar replacement) so this news about vanilla bean production is scary. (Eater)

Anna Faris has a new boyfriend and I am so happy for her. Her (soon to be ex) Chris is the worst Chris and NO ONE DISPUTES THIS. *pine tree emoji* (Lainey Gossip)

So I know that “Man Sues Airline For Serving Him Sparkling Wine Instead of Champagne” falls staggeringly high on the Douche Scale, but I sort of don’t blame him? I mean, I’d never sue over that, but if you’re going to advertise Champagne, I’m going to expect Champagne. Right? I’m alone in this, aren’t I? (T&C)

The Erdem + H&M collection is lovely; the jams are spectacular. (GFY)

Siege enjoys Ron Ripley’s various horror series. Borgin Keep, the eighth book in the Berkeley Street series, is one of his best. Ripley moves beyond some of the procedural elements and fleshes out the world more while keeping the plot moving and the characters interesting. You can’t read this one without having read the previous seven, but if you are looking for good ghost stories, check out Ripley. What is your favorite kind of horror story? (Cannonball Read 9)
