I think we should, we must begin today with heartfelt congratulations to Pajiba’s Courtney Enlow who gave birth to the most guh-orgeous baby yesterday. Babenlow’s birthday is not a popular one according to this heat chart of the most common delivery dates, but that just means she won’t have to share! P.S., have fun with the nine month math, folks. (The Daily Viz)
Speaking of math, I’m not a fan. Especially when it comes to time zones. I can’t be bothered. Thankfully, someone’s created a website for lazy liberal arts majors like me. Goodnight, Mumbai! (Every Time Zone)
Have you see this kind of frightening representation of all the Earth’s water? It doesn’t even cover three time zones. (APOD)
You know how sometimes an “innovation” comes along and you’re not wholly convinced the world isn’t Punking you? That’s how I feel about this black spring water that I’m going to go ahead and rebrand “Douche Juice.” IT’S WATER. IT’S FINE ON ITS OWN! (DYT)
Speaking of confusing things you put in your mouth, what is the deal with cake pops? Not to go all Evening At The Improv on you, but seriously, who decided it was smart to f*ck with the well-established cake/frosting ratio. That being said, I might try my hand making these (spoilerlicious from last season) Ned Starks for the “Game of Thrones” finale. (Not Your Momma’s Cookies)
Speaking of shows I love, it looks like “Cougar Town” has been saved by TBS only to lose a major player. I’m not convinced the show will be the same. (WG)
That’s okay, lets all console ourselves with a brimming vat of wine and these ridiculous Magic Mike EW photos. I would like a detailed accounting of how much body oil was used on Manganiello alone. (EW)
Worn did a fun, kitschy fashion spread inspired by Ed Wood. (One of my favorite Johnny Depp performances.) Has anyone else always assumed John Waters was on-set as official facial hair consultant for that Burton flick? (Worn)
Speaking of Waters (not to be confused with black spring water), some young-uns allegedly picked the eccentric director up on the side of the road in Ohio. Here’s a photo of him…in their van. He doesn’t look too scared…**UPDATE: It was a band! A band of young-uns!** (EW)
But, listen, John Waters gets a lifetime pass from me. You know why? This is why.
Speaking of books, if you’re like me, you’ve spent some time commuting via subway or bus. There’s nothing more awkward than being caught with your neck craned at an awkward angle trying to figure out what the cute chap across from you is reading. This fantastic tumblr takes the guesswork out of it. (Underground NYPL)
And while we’re in a literary state of mind, check out these amazing book sculptures. My favorite is my favorite for, um, obvious Pajiban reasons. (Web Urbanist)
Speaking of the tentacled wonders, enjoy these cute (if scientifically inaccurate) anatomies of well-known sea creatures. (Pleated Jeans)
Well played, Asians. Well played. (BioTV)
Finally, a college student spent loads of time automating his dorm room. Okay, so most of the “tricks” only save him from having to flip a light switch…and, sure, I’m not convinced he’ll be needing “party” or “romantic” mode any time soon…but still, neat. I couldn’t even be bothered to Swiffer my dorm room.
