Greetings Webtaculators! Petco Park in San Diego may be the saddest ballpark in America. It is a beautiful park in a great location in a laid back city, but absolutely no one actually goes to the games. It’s especially bad when there are more away fans (GO GIANTS!) than home fans at a game. Oh well, I guess that’s why I was able to get last minute tickets for $15. On to the news.
STORY OF THE WEEK (13 min. watch)
Why: Because it might be a good idea to have a better idea of how psychedelics actually effect the human mind.
ECONOMIC THING OF THE WEEK (4 min. read)
What: Long Haul Robotin’
Why: Because kids doing the “air horn move” at trucks on the highway pretty soon be completely ignored. You can personally thank Webtaculator Daniel for ruining yet another childhood pastime.
LAW THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: I’m Pretty Sure You Can’t Do That
Why: Because I’m all for states’ rights, but seriously. Stop this nonsense.
SCIENCE THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. look)
What: How We Eat
Why: Because American diets have changed drastically over a short period of time.
MOVIE THING OF THE WEEK (5 hr. watch)
What: Learnin’ With The Herz
Why: Because Werner Herzog is teaching 20 classes on how to be a documentary filmmaker.
TV THING OF THE WEEK (5 min. read)
What: Ratings And Sex
Why: Because male dominated polls might be skewing websites’ reporting of how popular shows actually are. But don’t worry, Real Housewives is still terrible. No one should watch it. Ever.
MUSIC THING OF THE WEEK (13 min. watch)
What: The Rhymes Are On Time
Why: Because this video breaks down how the best in the biz construct their songs.
LITERATURE THING OF THE WEEK (10 min. read)

VIDEO GAME THING OF THE WEEK (3 hr. watch)
What: A Perfect Game Of Donkey Kong
Why: Because professional Donkey Kong player Wes Copeland (yes that’s a real thing) just smashed the alltime high score for Donkey Kong, in a way that will be almost impossible for a human to match. Just watch for a few minutes to see how much better he is than your one time that you had a few minutes to waste while waiting for a slice pizza.
THING YOU SHOULD GET BRIAN OF THE WEEK
What: Any Of These Homes
Why: Because Brian deserves it.
