Protestors are tear-gassed by police in Turkey's capital during a demonstration

We have all seen countless photographs of riot police dealing with protesters – Ferguson, Athens, Manila, North Dakota – there is no shortage of unrest, and police tactics run the gamut from tolerant and reasonable to cruel and brutal. There is something about the officers' demeanor in this shot that I find particularly chilling, as they calmly spray tear gas at people demonstrating after a fire killed 12 people, mostly young girls, in a Turkish dormitory.

Every morning I wake up and, for a second (pretty much as long as it takes me to yawn and manage to open my right eye), I live in a world in which Donald Trump wasn't elected. That blissful second!

As millions of people learn that Che Guevara isn't, in fact, the Colonel Sanders for Hot Topic shirts.

Once upon a time, in a meadow near central Germany, a wild boar named Johann befriended a herd of cows and decided to follow them around. The humans around them thought it was adorable. What they didn’t know is that boar was telling them, “Flee! Flee, sisters! For soon you will be in a bierstube, and it won’t be to enjoy a refreshing after-work IPA!”
