NEXT UP: Raccoon Dog (#3) vs. Northern Short-tailed Shrew (#14)!!!! #2020MMM
Raccoon Dogs are omnivores native to Eastern Asia. Despite the characteristic black bandit mask & brown fur, they are actually not closely related to raccoons! Their common name is half correct though, they are closely related to foxes. #2020MMM A dark brown individual facing the camera showing the black crecent mask from eyes to jowls and very fluffy fur
While Raccoon Dogs are smol (~70cm long or 2.3 stoats), they make up for it with floof! Their characteristic long and silky brown fur can provide greater insulating warmth than arctic foxes! #2020MMM A rotund individual standing in front of a tree with side exposed depicting long brown fur tipped in black streaks.

It’s time for the Annual CivilWarHumor Story About George McClellan On His Birthday (a day late, obvs). This year, it’s a saga of his First Great Campaign, which led to his First Soul-Crushing Defeat & his First Precipitous Retreat.

Yep, I’m talking about his marriage proposal.
Just look at the expression on Mrs. McClellan’s face! If a picture’s worth 1,000 words, Ellen’s is worth a dictionary. “Surely,” you ask, “McClellan didn’t pitch woo as clumsily as he commanded an army in the field?” To which I say: “Buddy, Antietam was a CAKEWALK in comparison.”
It took Ellen six (6) years to say yes after he first asked. No WONDER he loved her! George served under her dad so he went for a direct assault, writing Ellen’s mom that he’d “make a bold plunge” and “win her if I can.” They met, he proposed, and …

Trump was elected w/ RU’s help & they lied abt contacts incessantly, why?

Barr & Mueller are forbidden to talk abt prosecutions filed under seal at various jurisdictions & abt active GJ matters & active inv’s.

Unsealed indictments will reveal Mueller’s Report.

Per RR: you can’t speak disparagingly about a person if they have not been charged with a crime (re: Comey re HRC)

Initially I had a meltdown about this as I realized then Mueller couldn’t speak of any criminal acts unless indictments were unsealed concurrently.

📌Chatter est’d 2 week delay is consistent w/ the likelihood indictments cannot be unsealed until Congress has rec’d the MR

📌Barr: the WH will get the MR before the public, in case it wants to make redactions.

📌Trump‘s legal team cannot redact indictments.🤗

NEXT UP: 6th seed Impala (Aepyceros melampus) vs 11th seed Klipspringer (Oreotragus oreotragus) #2019MMM
Our first battler is the impala, or as Dick Estes, author of the Behavior Guide to African Mammals calls them “the perfect antelope.” #2019MMM
Let’s explore why these antelope are so perfect. For one, they are gorgeous (SEE PICS). For two , they are about ~130 lb (60 kg), so they provide a perfect meal for a cheetah, leopard, wild dog, or even a lion. #2019MMM #Foreshadowing?

Rewatching episode 1 of Guardian because why not and this is why we rewatch: Prof Ouyang tells Shen Wei he has a favorite pupil of his own he would like him to talk to some day and it takes 30 more episodes for us to find out that it's Lin Jing.
Episode 1 rewatch continues: I totally missed that on the roof, Shen Wei's eyes flick to the side before he lets himself get tossed off the roof. He must see Chu coming and chooses his exit strategy thusly.
The first watch is always hard when you're reading subtitles because your eyes are always flicking up and down so you miss tiny things like side-eye.

1/ "Only limited studies have been done concerning adultery among Christians. But initial findings have been shocking."

~Bill Hybels, "Christians in a Sex-Crazed Culture", 1989, at least 4 years into his sexual assault & harassment of multiple parishioners and employees
2/ " 'The Myth of the Greener Grass' answered many of the questions I had been struggling to answer on the subject of adultery: What causes affairs?"

~Bill Hybels, "Christians in a Sex-Crazed Culture", 1989
3/ "In fact in the Old Testament, under Mosaic Law, anyone caught in adultery received the death penalty."

~Bill Hybels, "Christians in a Sex-Crazed Culture", 1989

NEXT UP: 3rd seeded Dimetrodon limbatus vs 7th seeded Pseudaelurus quadridentatus (aka Puff quaddy or Puffy) #2018MMM
This battle is a collaboration between @je_light & myself. #2018MMM
In R1 (seems so long ago, right?), Dimetrodon & Puff quaddy both took out extinct primates. Dimetrodon (early synapsid around ~300-260 mya in the Permian Period) shredded an exposed, & much smaller, Aegyptopithecus zeuxis (early catarrhine primate) #2018MMM
