No other developed nation has a debt ceiling, and we should just get rid of it to avoid the shenanigans we go through on a semi-annual basis, and the occasional crisis. Hold onto your hats, we may be nearing another one. (via Fark)

How Do We See Color?



From light to object to our eyes to our brains, the process of perceiving color in our environment is pretty complex. This video from the American Museum of Natural History breaks the process down into its steps in a fairly thorough yet understandable way. Oh, and it's beautiful, too. I sort of wish it had narration, just so that we could continuously follow the gorgeous graphics. (via Geeks Are Sexy)

An Honest Trailer for Jungle Cruise



Disney's latest effort in the Disneyland ride genre is Jungle Cruise, still in some theaters and, of course, on Disney+. The film has made millions of dollars, but performed below expectations. It has yet to break even. This Honest Trailer explains why- the source material is thin, the plot is formulaic, and everything about Jungle Cruise is borrowed from other films that did it better. However, its more than two hours is filled with puns and dad jokes, which cements its connection with the theme park ride, so it works as a kids movie.


They Should Have Tied the Knot



This has happened to all of us. The reddit thread gives plenty of advice for getting a drawstring back to its proper place, but it seems that elastic pants would be just plain easier in the long ruin, spoken as someone who's had to do that for many family members. This comic is from DeJMan.
