MILE HIGH HELIUM:

SPEAKING OF…more about the stuff we should probably appreciate more.

WE ARE EATING OURSELVES TO DEATH: Geez, kids these days.

A CASE FOR SHERLOCK? This seems sort of familiar…  But wait! This whole thing just got more Sherlocky.

AHEM: (Coughs). This also seems rather familiar. And a little bit sensitive. As in, tastes like crow.

WINTER IS COMING:

This might not be the most stylish cold weather jacket available, but when you read about the technology behind it and how it wears, you might not care. Because if it keeps you warm at temperatures below freezing while being able to keep sweat away from your body. SCIENCE!

A FOX SAYS…By now I can only hope you’ve experienced this. Because if you haven’t, this isn’t going to do much for you. It might not anyway, but gosh, what’s your deal?

JUST A SPOONFUL OF WTF? The Disney Imagineers strike again. This is something.

THE REVOLUTION WILL BE LIVE-STREAMED***: This really is an untenable situation. At some point, regular people trying to make an honest living will go all Bastille on folks. History tends to repeat, etc.

MARLON BRANDO WORKS IT OUT:

JUST WHEN YOU THINK YOU CAN’T HATE PEOPLE ENOUGH: This.

BUTT…then this comes along. Never. Gets. Old.

FIT TO BE FED UP? When you think that maybe you are battling yourself and your appetites seem to get the best of you, it might help to know the science behind it? Maybe? A little bit?

RIBBIT…RIBBIT…RIBBIT…Croak.

NO NOPE NOT-UH NYET NO:

They aren’t as uggly (see what I did there) as their famous namesakes but damn if those aren’t bo-to-the-ring. Also, the ad itself far upstages the product. That’s usually not a good thing.

CAPITOL COUTURE: From the pages to the big screen to the catwalks.

EYE HAD NO IDEA: Ever wonder why pirates wore eye patches? Somebody did. And I am kind of grateful.

THE EDGE OF THE WORLD: It’s really hard not to be impressed by this achievement. One can only hope that we continue to pursue these endeavors.

INCOMING!

***With acknowledgement to the late Gil Scott Heron for bastardizing his legacy. 

Need something else to read?

  • There are holiday parties and special events on the way that might just require neckwear. Start here.
  • Also, with Autumn, the skies might open up a bit more. So, yeah.
  • And…finally…this. Which, of course, is totally awesome.
