And there’s this from the LA Times: Woman gives birth, fights off bees, and starts wildfire in Northern California. (Someday that baby will grow older and roll her eyes every time she hears this story.)

+ Jim Carrey lit up Twitter last night with a screed against “Corporate Fascist” California Governor Jerry Brown who had just signed a bill making it more difficult for parents to opt their kids out of vaccines. (I still remember when Jim Carrey talking out of his ass was a schtick.)

+ “You’ll just be able to think of something and your friends will immediately be able to experience it too if you’d like.” I’d call that the worst case scenario. Mark Zuckerberg called it the ultimate communication technology.

+ Since we’re heading into a holiday weekend, here are few bonus longreads…. “The one who went into a coma after being punched in the back of the head. The guy whose ear was bitten off in the middle of a scrum. In one game, Nana had his shaved scalp cut open the way a letter opener slices an envelope.” From the NYT, the story of calcio storico, a most dangerous game. From The New Yorker’s Lawrence Wright, Five Hostages. And from Runner’s World: For Inmates, The Wall Has a Totally Different Meaning.

+ And finally, if you’re looking for an excellent book to page-turn over the weekend, join my imaginary book club and read The Diver’s Clothes Lie Empty by my friend Vendela Vida.
