This is like a palaeontologist's wet dream.

Finding a fully intact marsupial lion skeleton in a cave in the middle of nowhere.

Based on the condition of the skeleton they thought it might be only a few thousand years old and possibly still have some DNA they could extract. But it turned out to be 500,000 to 1,000,000 years old.

How they can deduce so much about a creature based on a few bones is fascinating, and they take you through much of the process.

I thought it was interesting how they skirted around the issue of how it hunted. It was obviously built to kill large animals and climb trees. But not for speed across the ground. I would guess that it was an opportunistic scavenger that drove other predators off kills. And an ambush predator. That likely hid in trees. And dropped onto its prey.

Also based on the reconstruction it seems more like a small bear than a lion. I wonder if it was an omnivore?

A YouTuber is streaming himself playing Donkey Kong 64 to raise money for a UK charity that supports transgender children which recently had its National Lottery funding put under review due to an online hate campaign. He's nearly 50 hours in (including a couple of sleep breaks) and has raised nearly $200,000.

Top notch guests. Chelsea Manning has been on a couple of times, the guy who did the game's sound design and music was on last night and he said "trans rights" in Donkey Kong's voice, and John Romero (co creator of Doom and Quake) was on for a few minutes just now. There have been murmurings about a possible appearance by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Last night I was watching "Superwog".

It's based on a deliberately amateurish YouTube channel. The TV show is just as bad but it's very funny, in a vulgar kind of way.

Then this morning the Brady Bunch came on. And I was the only person in my family who has even heard of the show.

Mr Pickles.

A cartoon about a dog.

It makes Family Guy or South Park look very very very tame.

Excellent. I'm sure it will grow on me.
