Cool Shit 1/28

If you were around in the 90s and liked television, odds are you enjoyed the X-Files. And if you liked the X-Files, then you will like this list of links that explore what the X-Files meant. (The show, not the actual existence of X-files.)

Follow the math in The Simpsons. There's a lot more of it in there than you might think.

Think your house is haunted by demons? Call the police, they might believe it too!

I bet you didn't know that your extra virgin olive oil is most likely not extra virgin. Or even 100% olive oil to begin with. Well, be a sucker no more!

A hot sauce taste test. Of course, I think this one only tested a total of ten brands, which seems ridiculously small.

Asparamancer. I don't even care if the idea of predicting the future with asparagus is complete hooey, I love that it at least gave us that word. Hello new dog name.

Here's one of those lists of facts that I certainly can't verify, but they sound cool.

Reviews from Sundance are starting to come in. Here's a look at one that takes on the best and worst, and another one that just focuses on the best.

If you're a fan of Terry Gilliam's work, you'll be excited to watch the new trailer for Zero Theorem, which looks very Terry Gilliam-ish. Seems to me it will be one of those movies that are lauded by a few, seen by fewer and raved about years from now. Just like all of Terry Gilliam's films.
