The 1950s needed a bit of freaking out.

I'm part of the San Francisco Awesome Foundation. We give away $1,000 each month to awesome projects, no strings attached! Here's a nice article in the NY Times about the NYC chapter:
http://nytimes.com/2015/07/19/nyregion/awesome-foundation-new-york-chapter-invests-in-awesome-ideas.html

A foundation’s New York chapter awards a $1,000 grant each month for projects that appeal to its trustees, like new tires for a 1911 car or a tour of an abandoned honeymoon resort.

Over half way to goal, and 8 days remaining!  Get a beautiful and unique wool scarf with a pattern generated by an elementary cellular automaton algorithm, made by my friend +Fabienne Serriere​!
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fbz/knityak-custom-mathematical-knit-scarves/
Mathematical scarves knit in luxurious merino. Algorithmically generated patterns, no two scarves are alike. Knit in Seattle, WA.

I've bought thousands and thousands of stickers from Sticker Giant. They do great work. High quality. Decent price. And when they mess up (as everyone does from time to time), they take full responsibility for their mistakes, and take care of everything right away. I recommend them to anyone who wants stickers made. (And everyone should make cool stickers!)
