The All In with Chris Hayes team puts out a daily call to the Twitter and Facebook communities for the “awesomest things” they encountered on the Internet.
1. We’re tipping our hat to Patton Oswalt’s most recent “Parks and Recreation” performance. He plays a man who filibusters a Pawnee City Council vote by making his pitch for the forthcoming “Star Wars Episode VII.” It’s the most satisfying (geek) humor you’ll encounter today, we promise.
2. The New Yorker put out an interactive graphic that reveals New York City’s income inequality by subway stop. The wealth drops from an average of $205,192 to $39,338 in a matter of 5 stops in upper Manhattan. That’s stark.
3. This week, New Zealand became the 13th nation to legalize same-sex marriage. After the final vote, lawmakers and spectators gathered in the public galleries and burst into a traditional Maori love song. It’s rather endearing.
