Reading the Internet, Week 4

Sorry to be super behind on this one but here are some links to spice up your monday and tuesday office time. A lot of them are videos this week, which is a surprising change of pace.

Alton Brown and William Shatner hang out and taste wine.

Great article about being white in Mexico City and lots more. I haven’t eaten at Sanborns but I bought my cellphone there.

It’s very scary to read articles like this (about moving back home and student debt) and realize it’s about you and your peers.

A fun archive find of Marilyn Monroe’s beauty and fitness regimen. Basically the polar oppose of Gwyneth Paltrow.

These Mexican fruit/dessert shops in Chicago seem like fairly faithful reconstructions of what I pass on almost every corner. My go to green juice is nopales, apio, piña, toronja and a fruit that I can’t pronounce and have no clue what it is but it’s small and light yellow. That’s cactus (known in the US as prickly pear), celery, pineapple and grapefruit juice.

A longread about shit. Really, it’s interesting.

World Cup section:

Seeing Mexico lose yesterday was not so fun. You could feel a deflation throughout the city and the streets were far emptier than usual. But they played so well and have improved so much in a short time that hope is high for 2018! I also caught the Costa Rica-Greece game yesterday which was so exciting and fun (and way longer than anyone though it would be). It was great to see them win! I’m hoping to find a buddy to watch the USA game with tomorrow.

Jimmy Kimmel asks Americans if they’re drunk at 9 am.

John Oliver explains why FIFA is evil (a compelling case).

Have a great week and look for more links this weekend!

It's my sister's birthday this week so here she is in my links!
