Friday Flashback: August 2017

For this week’s wayback-wend we’re cruising back to August 2017, home to a rare total solar eclipse, the conviction of “pharmabro” Martin Shkreli, and the discovery that Neanderthals invented glue. Enjoy your trip, and keep your hands inside the vehicle at all times.

The next update—a Vignette Party—is tomorrow, 7 August. In the meantime, have fun exploring the archives and thanks for visiting.
