Educational Twitter Thread Tells Tale Of Epic Historical Slave Revolt

Writer Michael Harriot dropped some serious history knowledge on Twitter this past Saturday and left us with slightly bigger brains and some serious chills. The Bahamas have been heavily featured in the news following the devastation of Hurricane Dorian, and this Twitter thread gives some powerful background on the history of the storm-ravaged island nation. Michael Harriot's expert storytelling (even when limited to 280 characters) gives serious oomph to an already compelling black history narrative of slaves and ex-slaves sticking it to the man.

Super Blunt Twitter Thread Demystifies Pooping & Peeing In Space

When  Hugo-Award winning writer Mary Kowal penned a New York Times essay about gender bias in space, she did not expect a wealth of responses claiming that women we kept from space travel due to a lack of adequate bathroom technology. The concept that only women would face issues relieving themselves was so preposterous that Kowal took to Twitter in hopes of enlightening the masses with some serious space potty history. 

In the thread, Kowal manages to destroy some seriously absurd bathroom-related gender bias and teach us a whole lot about the process of pooping and peeing in zero gravity. It's an informative yet wild and wildly funny ride, and really leaves us with the desire to observe a glove of purple piss floating out of a space toilet. If Kowal schooled you as hard as she did us, give her a follow on Twitter. She's got loads more wisdom to share.

Twitter Thread Exposing Fish Fraud Is Both Eye-Opening & Revolting

We've got some seriously bad news for fish-lovers. According to a report from nonprofit Oceana, over 20% of 449 fish that they tested were mislabeled, exposing some pretty serious "fish fraud." This is a staggering percentage, especially when considering that less than 1% of fish is tested for fraud. There's a huge chance that the expensive fish you're ordering while dining out is cheap - or even, according to this related Twitter thread from a biology professor, dangerous. There are fish out there that will hurt you to eat. And, as @AwesomeBioTA's class discovered, some of this "fish" is almost too disgusting for words.

Bethesda! How you tease us!

In the most recent of their educational videos on the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system, the developer goes over the importance of Intelligence.

These have been a whole lot of fun to watch, but all they do is dangle the carrot in front of our eyes before Fallout 4's Nov. 10 release.
