Blueprints For The Millennium Falcon

Pop Culture

Millennium Falcon

The design and engineering blueprints for the Millennium Falcon. I always thought the main area where Luke hung out and battled the floating orb was closer to the cockpit. In the movie, it also seemed like a much longer run from the doors to the cockpit.

The Science of Male Jeggings

Pop Culture

For the benefit of science, the editors over at Racked asked Joshua David Stein to wear men’s jeggings for a day.  Granted I didn’t know such things existed for men, and for my money, sweatpants are just fine by me.    Clearly there appear to be some drawbacks from these hitting mainstream:

I would say the biggest challenge I faced wearing majeggings is how to maintain the integrity of my thigh silhouette as well as my butt silhouette and still manage to carry that holy trinity of quotidian pocket contents: iPhone, wallet and keys. And that’s when it occurred to me. The perfect accompaniment and necessary corollary to the majegging is the murse. I look forward to the day when I can walk into Uniqlo and proudly demand, “Take me to your murses!”

Mad Men Office Floor Plan

Entertainment

From, Kratkocasnik, a 2D and 3D visual floor plan of Mad Men’s Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce Office Floor Plan.  In the original post, the author stated that Bert Cooper didn’t have his own office, which is not something I can verify.  Also, Ken Cosgrove is not represented in the plan and I’d have to figure he is somewhere near the “whiskey closet” represented in the above plan.  A cool way to close out another great season of MM.  I won’t give any spoilers but I think Don was using his wrong head to make the big decision in the finale.
