Contrails from two jets near U.S. border with Canada over St. Lawrence. Maybe the dick pic skywriting with the US Navy over Washington State earlier this month was just an unfortunate coincidence? I couldn't find these jets on air traffic websites so I assume they were military, probably practicing interception.

I remember in 1980 hearing a man in Canada holding up a newspaper with news of Mugabe's election and saying to his friend "That's good news - my dad says Bob Mugabe's the best politician in Africa today!". And he was saying it with an Afrikaans accent! Like Aung San Suu Kyi you can't tell what an opposition leader will be like if they haven't held any office before.

I knew an elderly man who said he did wardrobe for Mae West's Broadway play "SEX", which she was arrested for in 1927 - he said they didn't show anybody having sex, but in one scene where it was implied that they were, the two actors just left the stage empty for a few minutes and let the audience imagine it.

I'm actually pretty sure that really is young Shatner! The background looks a lot like the St. Lawrence, so I did a search on Google to see where it was taken. Since it's been misidentified on Pinterest, Google is guessing it is a teenage Jackman.

Saw refugees from the United States who just arrived, one woman with little girl, wearing their best dresses on Sunday as they walked around the place the government had placed them. It must be awful to arrive in an unknown place and not even be certain they can stay.

Did a German photographer use 16 cameras and wait 62 days to get a photo of the sun and the full emoon together that won't be seen again until 2035?
Did a German photographer use 16 cameras and wait 62 days to get a photo of the sun and the full moon together that won't be seen again until 2035, as seen below?
"Oak Kisses" by Bess Hamiti
This photo has been 'borrowed' by some on social media with the claim that it was taken by a German photographer with 16 cameras, and he had to wait for 62 days for some reason, and it "can be only seen again in 2035."
Hamiti uses the same pair of trees in other photo composites seen in his gallery.
