Now, you might be expecting this to be a rant about how irritating sports and sports fans can be. Maybe one about how team loyalties are based solely on regional pride even though many teams’ players aren’t from that city or state. How fans argue constantly with one another about the most irrelevant minutia and whole conversational dick-measuring contests exist to prove whose mental arsenal of said minutia is better stocked. How those same shrieking fools pack themselves into otherwise quiet bars when some of us just want a quiet drink.

Three out of your four top front pocket wallet picks were new-fangled minimalist wallets, but all the cool features and unique ideas in the world couldn’t buy them enough votes to overcome Saddleback’s old school leather wallet, which took nearly 50% of the vote all by itself.

This wonderful photo series comparing the size of things by Kevin Wisbith is a really fun way to earn some brain wrinkles, because it gives you a better sense of the true size of random buildings, ships, machines, and other objects. You get to see things like the Death Star hover over Florida in space, a B-2 bomber stretch across the width of an entire football field, and the Titanic lay out on top of a freaking aircraft carrier.

The microUSB cable that came with whatever gadget you need to charge every night probably works just fine, assuming you take care of it.
