Still hungover from St. Patrick's? Learn to hydrate, kid. Pop some aspirin and let Pajiba Love ease you into the week:

The titular character from the 1990s PBS show "Ghostwriter" was a runaway slave who was murdered by "slave catchers" for teaching other slaves to read. You read this, I'm gonna go sit and think about how nothing from my childhood was true. (Warming Glow)

Speaking of the '90s: my generation's fetishistic love for all things nostalgic continues unabated, this time with a remixed version of the "Breaking Bad" credits that feels like something Miller-Boyett would've done:

Iranian officials are apparently thinking about suing those liberal Hollywood bastards over the way Argo misrepresented their country, since the film's admittedly fictionalized narrative and general commentary on the mythmaking power of movies have flown just right over their angry heads. Good luck, guys. (Celebitchy)

On one hand, yes, you do not have a talking robot. On the other, you really can automate a lot of your life in ways remarkably similar to those dreamed up in this 1988 L.A. Times piece about life in 2013. (io9)

It's probably good I didn't find this interactive map of "Friday Night Lights" shooting locations until after I'd departed Austin at the end of SXSW. I'd have gotten nothing done. (Vulture)

If you think $2,500 is too much for a 55-gallon drum of lube, you're in luck: now it's half off. All you need to make your next party amazing is $1,263 and a dream. (Amazon)

The latest edition of SimCity has been plagued with tech issues that have turned off fans and critics. Now it seems that publisher EA is actually attempting to hide customer service phone numbers as a way to stem the tide of complaint. That should work perfectly, right? (CinemaBlend)

The season finale of "Girls" aired last night. The Onion accurately predicted everything that would happen, too. (Onion)

John Green would like to clear up your misconceptions. All 50 of them. (Mental Floss)

"The Professor, the Bikini Model, and the Suitcase Full of Trouble." If that headline doesn't make you want to read the story, then I don't know what to do with you. (NY Times)

Jim Henson's early work is just as cool as you'd think. (Splitsider)

I'll leave you with this video of a guy flying between skyscrapers in Brazil. Yes, you read that right. If this doesn't wake you up, nothing will:
