1. Victorian collage art and a catchy title? Of course I clicked on “The Blood Collages of John Bingley Garland (ca. 1850–60).” (The blood drops are ink, not actual blood, and it was a wedding gift for his daughter?) How cool that this weird object has survived 170 years.
2. This was enlightening: racist or otherwise hurtful phrases you should stop using. (The etymology of “picnic” isn’t actually racist like the article claims but its use was plenty horrifying.)
