Reid Wiseman. Astronaut.

Cynicism didn’t put a man on the moon. Cynicism didn’t win women the right to vote. Cynicism did not get a Civil Rights Act signed. Cynicism has never won a war. Cynicism has never cured a disease. Cynicism has never started a business. Cynicism has never fed a young mind. I do not believe in a cynical America; I believe in an optimistic America that is making progress.

That escalated quickly.

Nearly a billion fans will be watching the World Cup games, are you one of them? If not and you’re wondering what the big deal is, watch this clip — I break down everything you need to know about the World Cup.

If this was the only thing on earth to survive, then what’s the point of living?" a sommelier from the NYTimes who taste-tested Soylent, a food replacement drink.

School girls are supposedly located but not yet rescued.

On May 25, 2014, President Barack Obama made a surprise visit to Bagram Air Field in Afghanistan, where he spoke to U.S. service members and civilian personnel and thanked them for their service.

Interesting. Also, the State Dept. has a tumblr?!

Stockholders in SeaWorld are dumping stocks by the thousands thanks in part to the documentary Blackfish (98% at Rotten Tomatoes).

One really fucked-up thing I learned from the movie was that SeaWorld trainers give the Orca whales anti-depressant drugs, sort of like Prozac or Xanax, to prevent the whales from freaking out.
