Today is June 10, 2016, and it’s going to be hot in Chicago today (92°F or 34°C). The good news is that a passel of white lions have been born in the Magdeburg Zoo in Germany, and you can see the adorable pictures of the cubs here.
On this day in 1942, the Nazis destroyed the Czech village of Lidice in reprisal for the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich; one of the Germans’ most infamous acts of retribution in WWII. Those born on this day include Hattie McDaniel (1895), Saul Bellow (1915), Judy Garland (1922), and biologist E. O. Wilson (1929). Those who died on June 10 include Antoni Gaudi (1926), Marcus Garvey (1940), and Ray Charles (2004).

Cyrus: Probably, but it’s a recessive gene.
Hili: Czy myślisz, że my też mamy gen boga?
Cyrus: Pewnie tak, ale jest recesywny.
