Paul Ryan's Coming For Your Health Care

That's what the man said...

Even if he probably wishes he hadn't, Charlie Pierce has been trying to point this out for what feels like years now.

Not Space Cowboys

But fans of Joss Whedon should know he's got a new Much Ado About Nothing adaptation coming out...

Old Milwaukee

I have vague memories of Old Milwaukee ads being on the TV when I was a kid but I certainly haven't seen one live in years.

In the mid-west though, Old Milwaukee ads are going strong thanks in part to Will Ferrell...

I think I like that one best out of the selection that Laughing Squid pulled together.

Sun Light, Sun Bright

Remember when you used to try to burn ants with a little plastic magnifying glass when you were a kid?  Of course you do, this is like that only much much more so...

I can't help but wonder about what the more practical applications (if any) might be for a contraption like this.

Let's Get Real

Most people have a lot of trouble wrapping their minds around big numbers and the chunk of the wealth in America that the 1% is hanging on to is literally off the charts...

It's a good visual aid for just how out of whack the distribution of wealth is in the US these days and just how hard it is to actually understand and grapple with.  The 1% seems and sounds like it should be a mythic straw man that the rest of us are railing against, only it's a very real problem.

This video was all over of late, if you hadn't seen it yet I hope you take the time to watch it and share it now.

Rubik's Cube Juggling

There is no shortage of impressive rubik's cube videos out there on the interwebs but this one has a pretty good twist (see what I did there?)...

The commentary is a little annoying but the feat itself is fantastic.
