HAMSTERDAM KNOWS RIGHT FROM WRONG

475

Well-liked commenter Hawkeye Hodor (née SMKS) has started a Google Doc to compile things that Extremely-well-liked commenter therealCatnuts is wrong about. And as it currently stands, the write-in category of things Catnuts is correct about now leads the "wrong about" category by a count of 7-5. Hilarious.

HAMSTERDAM IS SENDING MEMOS

HAMSTERDAM IS SENDING MEMOS

The Verge COMCAST is not real thrilled with the 8-minute disaster call that went viral a week or so ago, but they are probably even less thrilled that these memos keep leaking.

HAMSTERDAM THROWS HARD

There are a lot of reasons that humans are different from the other great apes, reasons that we have come to dominate the planet. But among my favorites is this fact: my son that turned 3 just yesterday throws a baseball harder than any of our ape relatives. A full grown chimp, all 90 pounds of muscle and fury, can't top 20mph on the speed gun. Gorillas do even worse. http://cashp.columbian.gwu.edu/neil-t-roach-evolution-throwing

HAMSTERDAM IS A NINJA WEATHERMAN

758

Last week's lady ninja was mighty impressive, but this break-an-obstacle-and-keep-going-anwyay move from Joe Moravsky was silly. I'm pretty sure I could manage the first part, but I'm not real confident in the second half of that stunt.

HAMSTERDAM IS WATCHING THE QUEEN PHOTOBOMB

HAMSTERDAM CRAVES McBUCKETS

Hey Bulls fans! Sure we didn't get Melo, but we might have a poor man's Melo (or a rich man's Paul Millsap?) already on the roster. Because Dougie McBuckets just scores buckets. He did very well in the NBA Summer League, shooting 44% from 3 and 96% from the stripe, scoring dang well overall and even playing some better D than anticipated. And they do play D in the Summer League, these are not inflated PTL-type numbers. It remains to be seen if he can keep this up against top-flight NBA cagers, but go ahead and watch the video and tell me you aren't a little excited.

HAMSTERDAM ACTUALLY BUILT AN X-WING

728

JJ Abrams continues to appeal to the superfans by building real props, instead of using CGI for Episode 7. The latest is an X-Wing. Pretty neat. There's also mention in this video of the charity drive Force for Change, which allows winners to be in Ep 7, and now also includes a preview screening. So if you're a super-duper-fan, now you can give money to charity to prove it, and be remembered forever.

HAMSTERDAM WANTS THAT BURRITO

Michioacana

I've not yet had the pleasure, but we apparently have a world class burrito joint on our hands. La Michoacana got rave reviews from Nate Silver's FiveThirtyEight nationwide search for the best burrito, just barely missing the Knockout rounds after unfortunately getting stuck in a pod with the place that won Silver's original Chicago Burrito bracket from a decade ago. But check out their very nice write-up of our humble city and its best burrito joint: http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/we-return-to-the-burrito-brackets-chicago-roots/

Best/Worst Cases of B1G Teams

Sure, Iowa really could go 12-0 (I believe that). They could also go 6-6 if things don't break right (I believe that, too).

HAMSTERDAM WOULD STILL GO

Sure we know that Jurassic Park had a few unfortunate incidents when it tried to open a couple decades ago, but I'm sure they've figured out enough during that time to make me feel kinda safe. Or safe enough. Probably, right? I mean, you get to pet a Triceratops! More viral marketing for Jurassic World here: www.twitter.com/jurassicp2k15
