Cool Shit 5/29

What keeps Bill Gates up at night. It's obvious he's put a lot of time into this. So maybe start washing your hands more everyone?

40th Anniversary of Jaws means it's getting a limited re-release. No idea why it's limited. This thing should go out wide!

Lego X-Files!

Fantasy beer league. It's a little confusing to me (though the article plainly states how simple it is), because I don't understand the idea of the draft. Why not just bring beers you think will win the matchup each month? That way there's at least an element of surprise for everyone.

This situation  stinks. I realize that Allen Ginsburg's work can be provocative, but I don't think that means it should be simply eliminated from classrooms...high school classrooms. Firing a teacher for teaching something like this is extreme, and the censorship it indirectly supports should frighten us. Heaven forbid the concept of sexualized love (i guess because it was homosexual) is mentioned in an academic setting.

Looking at the state of television and what it takes to survive in a landscape that is never stable.

How we got the Honeycrisp apple.
