Full disclosure: between my vacation and work, things around here have been super lazy. Promise to be better in the future. Until then, here is another weekly roundup of fun links!
- Climate change continues to be a thing not enough people are talking about. Here is where I side note that I recently rewatched An Inconvenient Truth and it's still great. In college, we watched it as a perfect Powerpoint presentation. For an engineering school in small-town Midwest, I had some liberal professors. I digress - the folks at xkcd have a unique climate change perspective to scare the shit out of you.
- Vulture ranks original Netflix series. While in general I agree with the rankings, I'm overwhelmed by the number of options here. Too much TV! I'm still trying to catch on up on The Wire!
- A few weeks ago, Wired endorsed Hillary Clinton. This weekend, they took a list at the making of her unwanted viral video and how media/public perception has changed since the last go-around.
- I don't know why, but I will always have a soft spot for Mandy Moore. I was rooting for the Adams/Moore pairing! Regardless, she has a nice interview with New York Magazine. Good luck, Mandy, sincerely.
- Our first of two Buzzfeed links: a man whose sister died during 9/11 writes about his experience at the 9/11 museum. I honestly cried while reading this. Good luck!
- On a MUCH lighter note, for when you have a few hours/days to kill, here are some Wiki holes just waiting for you to fall into. The Japanese story was disturbing and the Genie story made me cry. Again. I might be on the verge of my period.
- Excuse me while I just flat-out brag for a second: my alma mater was named best in undergraduate engineering for the eighteenth year in a row! Go Engineers!
- Slate's Trumpocalypse watch reached 3.5 horsemen this week. Stay vigilant and terrified, friends. The article also links to the every-updated list of reasons why Trump should be disqualified for running for President.
