Quickies: The “real” Captain Marvel, teapot physics, same-sex marriage in Taiwan…

... and a whole heap of cute animals

Today is a special Cute Animal Friday because you get not one, not two, but THREE adorable puppers! Say hello to Rocket, Booster, and Comet, furbabies of the amazing Surly Amy. It is a life goal of mine to have a pack as sweet as these three. I think it’s safe to say that we could all use a cuddle with our favorite animal with the week of news we’ve had.

I decided that, in addition to adorable fauna, I’d stick with some stories that would inspire you for the fights ahead, or at least give you a moment of distraction by something cool:
