Okay, today's theme is "true facts that sound fake". I'll start:

The opossum is the only marsupial native to North America. It's also unusual in that it is the only mammal with an odd number of nipples: 13. It also has more teeth than any other North American mammal (50), and more incisors (10; everyone else maxes out at 6).

So basically it's this big furry weirdo with an odd number of nipples and way too many teeth. LOVE.

So if you ever need "permission" to not-visit or not-answer abusive family members, consider it given. Life is too short to give the gift of your precious self and time to toxic asshats.

The Notre Dame cathedral is apparently burning down and I think it says something about my brain or this reality or both that my first thought wasn't "oh no, what a terrible historical and artistic loss" but "is this going to get pinned on some group of people who will be killed and/or have their lives destroyed as a result"
