Cool Shit 7/30

I never played Oregon Trail. I guess my school's curriculum was too advanced. Or not advanced enough. We did play a game where you had to drill for oil on some imaginary continent. Our class broke into teams and the one team who found enough oil to fulfill the demand would win. And we would have easily won except the future Summa Cum Laude's team cheated and drilled in a spot that had been used previously as an example to the class on how to find oil. Kinda made me question two things: how bright the teacher was that he couldn't figure that out, and just how did that dude make Summa Cum Laude. Regardless, I'm sure many of you out there will be pumped to find out just how Oregon Trail got made.

It simply takes one minute for a lot of things to happen on the internet.

I don't know why lists have to use such hyperbole and say "best" or "worst" since it's all subjective in the end, but if you're looking for a new television series to start watching, this list of British television shows is a good place to start.

Want a rabbit hole to fall into for the day? Enjoy a look at how television show universes overlap to suggest there's just one - and that one lives inside the head of an autistic boy holding a snow globe.

Not sure if everyone knows this or not, but that monologue by Quint about the USS Indianapolis and the sharks? It did really happen. And somehow, it's worse than the story from Jaws. And while we're here...

Seriously, why are you drinking bottled water again?
