Sentimental moment: Spent the weekend at my grandparents camp going through old photos—discovered that ever since I moved away my grandma has been filling the scrapbooks with printed-off Facebook photos she gets from my aunt. Social media isn’t *always* the worst.

Lol, something tells me NPR complaining that Dave Chappellr “goes too far” might be his exact metric for success. https://t.co/9Bpkba9MIw

Cute Breast Cancer Awareness Month pink label! If only it wasn't on something that literally raises the risk of it: https://t.co/UEdggUJGVz

TFW when you have to announce your service is down on your rival's service because it's the only one that works. https://t.co/RC6IKmEnx8

Thankful for the people who invest time/money/expertise in race car safety. It isn’t sexy, but there are fewer empty seats at dinner tables in the communities we love because of you. Today could have been a devastating loss for the world. Glad you’re okay, Champ @LewisHamilton

It should not be lost on anyone that this is the same state that has resisted masks because they don't want to be told what to do with their bodies. https://t.co/f7JMkFNmeR

Let’s be real @TheAtlantic, the “behavioral characteristics of cats” is just a nice way of saying it’s just because, well, they’re cats.

Overheard in the grocery store: “Why do you need all this earthy shit?” “I just think it’s got to be healthier to return to what humans used to eat.” “You mean when they all died at 40?”

Remote work tip: Trust your coworkers to get the work done, and don't worry about how and when they do it unless they blow off a deadline. Remote work is hard enough—they should at least be getting the benefits of the flexibility.

I love this. This kind of thing feels like mistrust, and can single-handidly force already stressed people to cling onto their computers *in case* this happens. Slack is a voicemail, not a phone call. Send the message you need to send, and let your coworkers work how they work. https://t.co/aM8vx52Rle

Good morning, and Happy #NationalCoffeeDay! If you’re a regular coffee (read: someone who relies on a cup of joe for their very survival) do yourself a favor and make sure you’re actually getting the best cup. Here’s how: https://t.co/FQxcprs595 1/8

Shoutout to the people who make their friends feel*wanted* and not just *needed* in their lives. It can make all the difference.

The levees and floodwalls that protect New Orleans held up against Hurricane Ida's fury, officials say. It was the toughest test since the federal government spent billions to upgrade a system that catastrophically failed during Katrina 16 years ago. https://t.co/kqW9fF0bSv

Remote work tip: Instant message doesn’t equal instant reply. Stop saying “hi” then waiting for a reply. Just say whatever it is you actually have to say. It’s called async for a reason.

Hey, national news desks: Your covid breakthrough infection heds, while accurate, are making it seem like covid vaccines don’t work, and they do. Please talk to your science teams and lock that down.
