Seabiscuit (May 23, 1933 – May 17, 1947) was a champion thoroughbred racehorse in the United States who became the top money winning racehorse up to the 1940s. He beat the 1937 Triple-Crown winner, War Admiral, by 4 lengths in a 2-horse special at Pimlico and was voted American Horse of the Year for 1938. A small horse, at 15.2 hands high, Seabiscuit had an inauspicious start to his racing career, winning only a quarter of his first 40 races, but became an unlikely champion and a symbol of hope to many Americans during the Great Depression.

Who dissected a frog in high school?
@msolurin: My friend just brought it to my attention that she thought arraignments was a cute way of me saying hookup so she thought every time I said I have arraignments I was just announcing to the TL that I was off to a dick appointment. I’ll say court from now on
In a meeting, so I didn't turn on the sound for more context (maybe there is no more context), but this seemed like the kind of thing DCT or HeyStudentsBears' daughters would be involved in https://twitter.com/GraceSpelman/status/1365186968406097923?s=20
I really enjoyed this thread, not just for the initial laugh, but all the examples of positive masculinity: https://twitter.com/francescalyn/status/1364795547262017536?s=20
@francesalyn: Today I asked for a positive representation of masculinity and a student said “Kermit the frog” — they weren’t wrong but I don’t think I fully recovered
And before Cugel gets up in arms about sexism, she also said this: I think in general the best representations of Superman are also a great example. He’s physically strong and conventionally attractive but recognizes how much power he has. I think it’s important to emphasize that presenting as traditionally masculine is not inherently bad.
