Twuesday Tweetacular: Crazed canadians and nesting doll races
I think it’s neat that we can see a star 13.7 billion light years away but still rely on a rodent to tell us how much longer winter will be.— White Whine (@RuPancakes) February 3, 2014
RuPancakes, Vox can’t decide what is more confusing about this holiday: the fact that animals are better at predicting the weather than most meteorologists, or that Canada needs four groundhogs to let them know that it is still not getting any warmer above the 45th parallel.
The bar I am in is quiet and dim, with hockey on the TV. Maybe it’s run by canadians.— Mike Taylor (@mbrookstaylor) February 3, 2014
I turned on nbc to see an Olympic preview, and it's a history of Russian nesting dolls.

Jaketapper, there are only two plausible explanations for this. Either a doll-stacking speed race has been added to the list of Olympic events, or Putin has asked the dolls themselves to compete… in bobsledding.
Sometimes working with adults and working with children are frighteningly similar experiences.— Kathryn Berg (@grebtak) February 3, 2014
Ah, social interactions. This is why Vox prefers blogging to humans.
