From ‘Ghost Apples’ to Emojis showing up in court cases, this Snack Pack has got a little bit of everything and I hope it has a little bit of something that you enjoy.
Extreme Temperatures Breed Glassy Hollow Forms Called ‘Ghost Apples’ which are a cool side-effect of the weather we’ve had this winter.
Our Era Of Fanaticism; We’re All Trolls is a thought-provoking read by our very own Blessing Mpofu.
Freshly Cut Flowers Make Sparks in Electrically Charged Images and I may need to figure out how to get them to be my new desktop pictures.
When I read this title: Emoji are showing up in court cases exponentially, and courts aren’t prepared. I laughed. But it’s actually becoming more and more of an issue, something more serious than whether it’s a chocolate ice cream emoji or a poop emoji.

Speaking of the poop emoji.
Things are never, "just funny" or "just a meme". There is always a reason something is appealing. It's up to you whether you want to examine that.
If other people criticize it, saying "it's just a meme" will (and should) be interpreted as, "I choose not to think about this."
