The Starks of Winterfell are always warning us Winter Is Coming, but I'm still grumpy about it. Buzzfeed gives us quite a few reasons to embrace the cold weather, though.

From Alexis, a thoughtful article about the world's 'poorest' president. Uruguay's president lives on a "ramshackle" farm and gives away much of his pay. He definitely cannot be accused of forgetting the 99%!

Inspiration: one kid wrote, animated and directed this completely insane sci-fi short.

How delicious is a 3D printer hamburger? Maybe not very, but the concept is mind boggling.

After my Falcons suffered a heartbreaking loss in the NFC Championship, I swore I was done with the NFL for awhile … but this Bad Lip Reading: NFL Edition is hilarious. I feel a bit better now.

Just how special are you? This can be determined, of course, by how many goats you are worth. How many goats would you have in your dowry? (I apparently would have eight with a brother thrown in. I don't know if that is good or bad).
