This sun-chasing robot looks after the plant on its head - The Verge
Chinese roboticist and entrepreneur Sun Tianqi has made it happen: modding a six-legged toy robot made by his company Vincross to carry a potted plant on its back.

The resulting plant-robot hybrid looks like a leafy crab or a robot Bulbasaur. It moves toward the sunshine when needed, and it retreats to shade when it’s had enough.

How to Grow Old: Bertrand Russell on What Makes a Fulfilling Life – Brain Pickings
Make your interests gradually wider and more impersonal, until bit by bit the walls of the ego recede, and your life becomes increasingly merged in the universal life. An individual human existence should be like a river — small at first, narrowly contained within its banks, and rushing passionately past rocks and over waterfalls. Gradually the river grows wider, the banks recede, the waters flow more quietly, and in the end, without any visible break, they become merged in the sea, and painlessly lose their individual being.

We don’t want to teach them to fish. We want to teach them to be fishing guides.”

Ice Poseidon’s Lucrative, Stressful Life as a Live Streamer | The New Yorker
There was a time when he was swatted every day for a month. Things reached a crisis point when someone called in a bomb threat on a plane he had just boarded in Phoenix, on his way to a video-game convention, and several of the airport’s runways had to be closed. The episode led to Denino’s permanent banishment from Twitch, which is why he now streams on YouTube.

Catullus 85 - Wikipedia
Found because of a JK Rowling tweet on Twitter . . . .

"Odi et amo. quare id faciam fortasse requiris.
nescio, sed fieri sentio et excrucior.'" [1]
I hate and I love. Why do I do this, perhaps you ask.
I do not know, but I feel it happening and I am tortured.
