Morning Roundup: How to Tree Your Dragon

In the old city of Chellah in Rabat, Morocco, there is a tree that has grown into the shape of a DRAGON. This has either happened naturally, or, in a more interesting universe, the spirit of a long-extinct dragon has manifested itself in this tree! One day, all the children of the city will know to come to the Dragon Tree with their troubles, and the Dragon Spirit will grant them Her wisdom in magnificent dreams of flight.

Morning Roundup asks an important question: why is Gandhi such a jerk? (The Civilization version of Gandhi, not real Gandhi.) We also meditate upon Christopher Nolan’s flask of tea, and infiltrate a colony of penguins!
