Cool Shit 3/18

Ok, so while a plane going missing is crazy and hard to comprehend, it's also (obviously) not impossible and not unique.

FiveThirtyEight did an unbelievable job with the predicting the presidency. So why not try to accurately predict the NCAA tournament? Of course, it might be slightly harder, dealing with the unpredictable nature of sports. So I wouldn't sink all my money into these results if I were a betting man.

Sure, you know about The French Connection and The Conversation, but the 70s boasted a lot of cool thrillers.

Seriously, did no one think this was going to happen? Martin is notoriously slow with his books, and once the show was proven to be a cash cow of course they were going to fast track it and move it fast. And I'm not thrilled that the notoriously slow author is suggesting strategies about how to slow everything down. At this point, maybe we all just have to wait.

This real look at hot dogs might make you queasy. I think it depends on your love/hate relationship with hot dogs.
