Sending children back to school in the fall can be an emotional rollercoaster for most parents — especially after a string of school shootings in the last year that has made the yearly tradition feel downright overwhelming. “My daughter was in kindergarten last year and she knew that her place in 'lockdown drills' was by the toilet in the classroom bathroom, and that she had to wait till the administrators banged on the doors, and that she had to be quiet," Cassie Arnold, an arts educator and mom of three living in Texas, tells Yahoo Life, lamenting that fact that school shootings have become normalized. Arnold — in order to jumpstart important conversations about school gun violence, and to coincide with the return to school — decided to use her skills as an artist to create School Uniform (Bulletproof Dress), an outfit worn by her middle child in a photo for social media.

But sorghum isn't totally immune to drought.
John Oliver said Afghanistan wasn't doing well under U.S. occupation ― yet the situation got even worse when American troops left one year ago and the Taliban took over. Our exit was the foreign policy equivalent of putting a cake in the oven, and then 40 minutes later taking out a live rat dressed as Hitler,” he said. It's not just a fuck-up.

John Oliver had a pretty good laugh at GOP Rep. Mike Turner on Sunday night, after the Ohio representative seemed to be having a physical reluctance to defend Donald Trump over the classified documents found at Mar-a-Lago last week, insisting that “classified” doesn't always actually mean “classified.” “But many seem more than happy to do that this week, with multiple Republicans liking the FBI to the Gestapo, Fox News trolling through the Facebook feed of the judge who approved the warrant and showing a meme of his face on Jeffrey Epstein's body and, still, others preemptively minimizing what Trump may have done.” At that, Oliver brought up footage of Turner, speaking to press on the matter and explaining that “there are a number of things that are 'classified' that fall under the umbrella of nuclear weapons but that are not necessarily things that are truly classified.”

Whether you happen to live under a rock or, like the producer of the video shown here, get all your news from memes and car blogs (Hi, Matt!), you may not be aware that Death Valley experienced some uncharacteristically extreme weather earlier this month, bringing with it record-shattering flooding and all of the headaches that come with it, including wrecked infrastructure. YouTuber SuperfastMatt apparently decided he'd stock up his modified Toyota 4Runner and go check it out for himself en route to some salt flat shenanigans at Bonneville. "I've done a lot of off-roading, but I've never done it on a road," he said at the beginning of the video, and while what followed was nothing insurmountable for his well-equipped 4Runner, he encountered many a stranded and struggling motorist along the road through the park on his way northward from the entrance near Darwin, CA.
