I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more lazy (but also hilarious) attempt at climate change denial than from ⁦@MaximeBernier⁩ . Next he’ll suggest an AC tax-break to fight climate change.

At the beginning of the 17th century, a book of black magic was published, attributed to the mythical Faust and known by the title Höllenzwang. The library in Weimar owned a manuscript of this text, which Goethe was aware of.

Dragons lay on piles of shiny things because they're precious.

Cats are a distant evolutionary cousin to dragons, thanks for coming to my ted talk.
