Pretty Good is a webseries by Jon Bois about things that are pretty good. It's well-resarched, well-produced, and it always puts a smile on my face.

They don't come out that frequently, and there are only 4 episodes so far. All of them are worth watching, but episode 4 is, I dare say, required viewing.
In 1983, Soviet Lieutenant Colonel Stanislav Petrov had to choose whether or not to break the rules. His decision may have determined whether you and I are alive right now.

I figure I know enough space nerds that I should pass this along. Looks pretty neat.
Equal parts astrophysics simulation, narrative adventure, and backpacking in space, Outer Wilds is Majora’s Mask meets Apollo 13.

The article is excellent throughout, but I'm sharing it as much for the headline as for the content. It'll make a great mantra in vaccination arguments.

Whimsical holiday classic, or chilling prequel?
Throughout ‘Home Alone,’ Kevin McCallister displays anger-control issues, a proclivity for violent fantasies, and voyeuristic tendencies, combined with a fetish for recorded video.

Interesting throughout, particularly the bit about an off-shoot of the Tea Party strictly dedicated to opposing sustainable growth practices as unAmerican. smh. 
Boomers and Millennials say they want to live in compact, walkable developments, but builders are putting their money into suburban McMansions.

This timeline, found in an anniversary celebration booklet, kind of bums me out. I don't want to overgeneralize, but timelines usually signify perceived progress, and this tells me someone decided after 2010 that "No, we had the right idea in 1998. Astronauts aren't scientists; he needs to be a dude with body armor and a handgun." #LEGO

The decline in sales from 1992-2004 was due in part to lack of interest in the more generic sets Lego was producing. "Story" sells these days and creating multi product tie ins have created products that kids want again. They produce sets, videos, books, video games, etc. that all link characters and plot together.

At least at our house, we still get a good dose of kids creating their own things, even if it sometimes includes Indiana Jones riding a spaceship to fight evil ninjas.

I can't top the snark in this writeup, so I won't try.

"Anyway, this lasted maybe five days before officials said it would be canceled. The city manager said the plan wasn't vetted through the city's legal department, making it sound sort of like the plan's fault. But he also semi-defended it. 'There was a general perception among many in the public that the police department was going to use this program to perform some kind of general sweeps or unauthorized searches of people's [homes] to confiscate their firearms,' he said. 'That's not what was intended.' No, they were going to ask first. We get that."

"But when you see a couple of dozen cops arrive, armed, to deal with an obviously peaceful protest, well we as a country have obviously lost the plot. When we start arming ourselves against our own citizens as a routine matter, things are pretty goddamned broken."
