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 WANTS THAT BURRITO

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/

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 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!

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.

Queen Victoria's visit to Westeros has been talked about a good bit today, but this photo of Lena Headey throwing daggers at the queen is my favorite. Thanks, UPROXX

HAMSTERDAM PUTS IT IN

Most people say that's off Deuce's stomach or hip. I say Portugal got off lucky when he only gave them the tip.
