Weekend Links: Shakespearean Hokey Pokey

Image credit: 

Gary Oldman speaks out against a very dangerous trend - athletes turning into actors! Fun fact: they had to shoot this an additional three times because he kept making the basket at the end. The man is just that cool.

Ohhhh dearie me, what was the past like? Back in the day, Mickey Mouse attempted suicide and fought opium smugglers, and kids weren't weak and spoiled!
*
The Hokey Pokey, Shakespeare style (and thanks to Boing Boing, I finally know where it originated. Very clever).
*

A fantastic ominous photo of the smoke from the Colorado fires, apparently taken by accident. For some reason I feel like this could be used as a promotional image for Breaking Bad.
*
Informative and necessary: a helpful chart - England versus the UK versus the British Isles, etc.
*
An interesting piece on Collider this week about Pixar by the Numbers, From Toy Story to Brave.
*
Another list of helpful auxiliary uses for common household items, including one which solves one of the most irritating aspects of summer swimming - foggy goggles! Apparently toothpaste works (anyone tried it and can confirm?)
*
On this day, something happened. Somewhere. To someone. Quickly time travel through the site each day to find out what!
*
What clementines can teach surgeons (the "a surgeon did this one / a non-surgeon did this one" picture is pretty convincing on its own).
