Today's Mighty Oak

“Congratulations, you just committed a very original sin.”



Alright, let’s see what we have today.  First up, for those enjoying the fourth season of Arrested Development, or in case you want to get caught up, there are two great summaries of the ongoing jokes here and here, and a good article at Nerve about what you learn about love from AD.

This is very scary, ice tsunami:

Wil Wheaton explains why it’s awesome to be a nerd.  Check it out here.

Jason Collins has revealed that he choose the jersey number 98 as a tribute to Matthew Shepherd.

I will never ride this (also because it’s in Texas):

I’m not a huge fan of the Pope, or the Catholic Church, but this new pope has made some good in-grounds.  Including his comments here.  Fun fact though: a crazy bigoted former coworker who is on his way to seminary, is freaking out because in his own mind, you can only go to heaven via the Catholic Church.  You know, ignore the pope, his boss, because he doesn’t hate the same people he does.  Sigh. 

In case you’ve forgotten that public transportation is important, to everyone on the round, check this out.

Google Glass from the perspective of a two year old:

A bridge (I believe the one that collapsed a few years back) in St. Paul lit up to celebrate marriage equality in Minnesota.

And in sad equality news, a baker has denied a cake to a lesbian couple for their wedding.  For those curious, just substitute, say, “African American” before couple and see if it’s still bigoted, and illegal.  Hint: it is.

This has been floating around, and it’s awesome.  Sad that it needs to be posted, but awesome:

It’s always fun to see hockey graphic departments show their nerd sides.

I’ve been working my way through Crash Course: Chemistry, and this is a great companion piece (that is not from Crash Course):

That’s it for now, but I’ll be back with more soon.  Have a great one!
