From a reader who calls himself "Bicycle Bill" (I like your style, BB), a list of the most iconic, misquoted movie lines. I just don't know how these lines end up as they do, so slightly changed and everyone buys into it, even though they know they're not correct! Somewhere, a writer weeps.

Tennis balls are all over the place, and not where they should be. I'm talking about in bushes, in gutters, in lakes, in creek beds. Apparently they don't biodegrade. So what are you supposed to do with them? Here are 10 creative uses for old tennis balls. Have you guys tried any others?

Procrastination Station: Drench! It took me a little while to figure it out, but essentially you start with the color blocks in the upper left corner and try to saturate as many colors with each click on the righthand palette as possible. Addicting!

Fans of Broadway hit Hamilton will soon be able to dine like the Founding Fathers: As Eater reports, a new Alexander Hamilton-inspired cookbook is slated for release in fall 2017.

Amazon

Called The Hamilton Cookbook: Cooking, Eating, and Entertaining in Hamilton’s World, the recipe collection by author Laura Kumin “takes you into Hamilton’s home and to his table, with historical information, recipes, and tips on how you can prepare food and serve the food that our founding fathers enjoyed in their day,” according to the Amazon description. It also recounts Hamilton’s favorite dishes, how he enjoyed them, and which ingredients were used.

Recipes included are cauliflower florets two ways, fried sausages and apples, gingerbread cake, and apple pie. (Cue the "young, scrappy, and hungry" references.) The cookbook’s official release is on November 21—but until then, you can stave off your appetite for all things Hamilton-related by downloading the musical’s new app.
