One of my favorite film shots, just a few seconds long - a girl from a busy group of women briefly notices and acknowledges the (then) 80 years old Eiffel tower reflected in a brand-new modern minimalist glass door. From the masterpiece Playtime (1967) by Jacques Tati.

Evan Osnos on a documentary about Internet addiction in China: http://nyr.kr/1zlEN4i

"FUCK social justice warriors" hollers the awful tumblr nerd. "This is bullshit! You can’t label me! I’m not a ‘vertebrate’, I’m just NORMAL!" He is yelling at a passing bug. "Get over yourself!" he howls as it buzzes away, oblivious. He is asked to leave the internet café.
