Fair Warning - The Postal Service, Economic Power, and National Parks

Not much to say this week other than I am obsessed with Bo Burnham: Inside and I would recommend watching if you’re into what I would say is like… funny, but also incredibly depressing stuff? Smart and incisive but kind of devastating? Don’t all rush to watch it at once.
Here are some random things I found interesting:
  • I kept this Twitter thread link with a note saying “CAVE PAINTINGS ARE FILMS!?” because it really blew my mind.
  • British soldiers in WWII would sometimes dress in drag to keep themselves entertained. These photos are great.
  • “Newspaper graphics have gone downhill” (Important context for non Brits — our health secretary just got caught having an affair on a camera in his office, and so a newspaper made a graphic of the office and where things are…)

It feels like a very quiet week, right? That’s literally all I have for you, though I feel like I must be missing something! Where is all the British data journalism!? I’m always looking for stuff but if you’ve seen anything interesting you think I ought to include, feel free to reply to this email. :)
See you next week!
