A Tweet Or Two


So sorry for the setback, GB. We here at TOD want you to know that we have your back, we admire your strength and courage, and we are rooting for you all the way








Different day. Same disgusting BS




There is no pleading ignorance about nooses. When you use a noose against a Black person, everyone knows what you mean. Everyone one knows the threat, violence, and racism it represents. Everyone knows that you are terrorizing Black people



But…but…cops are here to protect everyone



Great article






You rock, Ms. J’OB!



Bravo to this doctor



Queen Lupita. *Bows*



Good riddance to bad rubbish


The dumbing down of the populace continues. Good job, GOP
















Ted Cruz “hard at work.” USA! USA!


Another example of how UT Austin is better than Texas A&M. UT is fighting against this insane bill that threatens the safety and lives of everyone on campus. A&M is cheering this dangerous bill

















Good read





Bravo, sir



Don’t lie, parents. You all did this at some point. 😂


This must be Danny’s friends. Eh, Chips?

      Pardon my ignorance, LPlains, but does this mean the team will be coach-less, won’t be in attendance either, thereby forfeiting its place, or that the UConn team wasn’t playing in any case?

      • March 31, 2015 at 8:39 pm

        UConn, won the national title last year….(and the Final Four is typically where all coaching staffs gather over the 4-day weekend for conferences/banquettes) so have the defending champions not in attendance is especially poignant.


        The UCONN Woman’s team is in the Final Four going for their 3rd straight National title….but that is in Tampa.

          I thank you for explaining – makes far more sense to me now. (I actually did a quick google search before asking and couldn’t tell from the first responses whether UConn was playing or not.)

    Nerdy, can never find the (new) words to thank you for these compilations, they’re utterly fantastic and so brilliantly comprehensive – I know I’ll never miss one of the day’s big stories even if I’ve been out and about. Endless thanks.

    So, so, so sorry to read about GB’s setback – as you said, Nerdy, everyone here is rooting for her and sending her all the love in the world. GB, keep on battling, our beloved warrior.

    3) Microgravity makes you feel like a superhero

    Hadfield’s favorite thing to do in the reduced gravity environment of the ISS, he said, is to “simply fly -— to push off and glide magically to the other end of the station. It makes me smile to myself, every time.” “We even pose for Superman-like pictures, normally with a big goofy grin on our faces,” he wrote in a second AMA after returning. “But the inside of ISS is small enough that superhero leaps often end in a tumbling crash into the other wall.”….

    4) Shrimp cocktail is especially delicious in space

    Asked about his favorite food from the Apollo days, Buzz Aldrin remembered the dehydrated shrimp cocktail. “[The food] was mostly freeze-dried so we had to add water to the container and let it set,” Aldrin wrote. “We had very small shrimp that had a little bit of cocktail sauce, and when exposed to water, were very very tasty.” Decades later, Hoffman also named shrimp as his favorite. “The reason is that your sense of smell and taste are reduced in weightlessness, probably because of the fluid shift to the upper body, which fills up your head and makes you feel a bit like you have sinus congestion,” he wrote. “The shrimp in the cocktail were not great, but the sauce had a lot of spicy horseradish, and it really opened your head up. I had a shrimp cocktail before every dinner!”

    11) Spacewalking is utterly amazing

    “It really does take your breath away. You open that hatch and you look at the Earth — it’s one of those times in your life that you will remember forever,” Mike Hopkins wrote. “It was the most magnificent experience of my life,” Hadfield wrote. “Alone in a 1-person spaceship (my suit), just holding on with my 1 hand, with the bottomless black universe on my left and the world pouring by in technicolor on my right. I highly recommend it.”….continued

    Big mistake—I turned on Ari Melber to hear him featuring Tom Cottons opinion on Iran deal. Then McCain calling for Israel to bomb Iran. A deal looks likely at this point.
    GOP and MSNBC will lose their minds if the deal works out.
    I hope we get to see this.

    Missed GB’s update, sorry to hear that she’s no longer in remission. Group hug and sincere healing thoughts to ((( GB ))).

    President Obama is once again flying under the radar of the lazy, self-absorbed MSM on prison reform. Expect to see much more action before Jan 2017.

    Thanks Nerdy for the post this evening and am so sad about the setback for GoBrooklyn. 😦

    In the last thread Bobfr had a bunch of good tweets on the breakthrough in the negotiations. Any #IranTalks good news is good news, right? More than anything, I’m so happy for our Iranian brothers and sisters who have lived for decades under sanctions that no doubt hurt them as much if not more than hurt the regime.

              I’ll never forget that day!!!! And YOU snooze through the whole thing!!

              I’m always struck that many of us learned of it via a tweet from a guy who lived in the vicinity of the operation and heard loud helicopter noise and became concerned. He started speculating about who might be flying aircraft at that place and time and the next thing you know, a while later we’re being told PBO will be making an announcement very late at night. It was a complete shocker.

    From Julian Bond’s editorial….

    I have seen discrimination. I have stood inside businesses that would not serve me because of my race, and I have been told that the rights of those business owners were more important than mine. I countered that logic then, as I do now. We have no crisis of religious discrimination; we have a crisis of fear. I stand against these bills and with those who are fighting to stop them. I refuse to allow discrimination to cloak itself in a shroud of faith. I refuse to give into fear.

    I’m just wondering if there is an agreement/understanding or if the U.S. is still not there. I know one shouldn’t read too much into facial expressions but the photo of POTUS and Kerry, etc. looks like some detail is still being ironed out; i.e. it doesn’t look celebratory. The other odd thing is no US spokesperson has mentioned agreement. I’m wondering if Iran and Russia and EU are in agreement and they are trying to force agreement on US by announcing it prematurely. Thoughts?

      I noticed that the celebrations were coming from others but not USA, forus. Yes, it is a bit worrying. Presumptive closing, as realtors might say.

      • 94 forus50
        March 31, 2015 at 9:41 pm

        Very odd…no US or international news is reporting the update about drafting it tomorrow. CNN and Reuters and AP tweets all refer to Kerry saying “tricky issues remain” and talks drag on. I think the “presumptive close” is a good guess as to what’s being done.

    • March 31, 2015 at 9:43 pm

      I don’t think the other partners would be so naive at this stage as to think the U.S. can be pressured into something they have not agreed to. I think the caution is about waiting for tomorrow’s draft. They want to be sure that what is put on paper matches the discussion and agreement and can be signed by all. JMO.

    The leader of one of Libya’s rival governments – backed by Islamists and based in Tripoli – has been sacked by its parliament, officials say.

    Omar al-Hassi was appointed in August to lead an alternative government after Islamist militia seized the capital.

    MPs voted to oust him on Tuesday following allegations he misled parliament about government finances.

    Libya has been in turmoil since the Nato-backed removal of former leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.
