HAMSTERDAM WANTS THAT BURRITO

624
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

HAMSTERDAM IS THE WORLD'S WORST VALET

Here's a silent, and not very simple to follow video of what is probably the world's worst valet driver crashing a $500K Lamborghini. I am still not quite sure what the hell happened. Additional photos can be found HERE

HAMSTERDAM WATCHES MIAMI BURN

Well this is going to be fun. My how the dominoes start falling once the King returns. We're less than two hours since LeBron announced he's going back to Cleveland, and the ESPN frontpage is now loaded with the aftershock: Kevin Love says "oh heck yes I'd like Cleveland". Bosh is set to take the Houston offer. Melo might choose the Bulls after all, and the Lakers are out. So much fun. Let's join in that fun. To Hamsterdam!

Our very own Adam Jacobi talked about RDM's game with the fine folks at Orlando Magic Stuff; it's a good read.

HAMSTERDAM IS FASCINATED BY GENETICS

I'm knee deep in a couple books about the origins of humans and other hominids. And while there's some fun stuff there (it's been confirmed almost everybody has Neandertal genes as pert of their genome, some populations up to 10%), it's not really as striking a picture for a Hamdam lead-in as the one above. Every great long once in a while, with the history of mixing of races (especially in racially charged slave areas), we get a "black" child born to "white" parents or vice versa. Sandra Laing is the girl in the picture, those are her biological parents in 1960s South Africa where she was expelled from her "white" school because of her completely "black" features. She had a movie made about her (SKIN) that I'm not sure many have seen, but she's the most prominent example of a rare and fascinating phenomenon.

Aww. Here's your new off-topic thread. The usual rules apply.

HAMSTERDAM IS STILL NOT QUITE DONE WITH FIREWORKS

H/T to grizhawkbruin for posting this in the previous H'dam; if you didn't watch it then, I encourage you to do so now. Hell, if you DID watch it then, I'd still encourage you to watch it again. It's fantastic. Anyway, here's your new off-topic thread. The usual rules apply.
