Don't feel bad, most people can't. However, if this personal failing keeps you up nights like it does me, your salvation is at hand: we now know how to do it, thanks to the eggheads at MIT.

I really like this show. There is very little that I find myself disagreeing with the hosts, unlike some of those overdone Food Network shows where everything is staged (yeah, all the cooks finish in 3... 2... 1).
Catch these while you can, only one season at a time is up for viewing.

Three kayaktivists who oppose construction of the Bayou Bridge Pipeline - the tail end of Energy Transfer Partner's Dakota Access Pipeline - are reportedly the first people to be charged with felonies under a new Louisiana law that, like a model bill crafted by the right-wing American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), criminalizes peaceful protests of fossil fuel projects.

"Bless me Father, for I have sinned. I have been with a loose girl."
The priest , "Is that you, little Joey Pagano?"
"Yes, Father, it is."
"And who was the girl you were with?"
"I can't tell you, Father. I don't want to ruin her reputation."
"Well, Joey, I'm sure to find out her name sooner or later so you may as well tell me now. Was it Tina Minetti?"
"I cannot say."
"Was it Teresa Mazzarelli?"
"I'll never tell."
"Was it Nina Capelli?"
"I'm sorry, but I cannot name her."
"Was it Cathy Piriano?"
"My lips are sealed."
"Was it Rosa DiAngelo, then?"
"Please, Father! I cannot tell you."
The priest sighs in frustration. "You're very tight lipped, and I admire that. But you've sinned and have to atone. You cannot be an altar boy now for 4 months. Now you go and behave yourself."
Joey walks back to his pew, and his friend Franco slides over and whispers, "What'd you get?"
"Four months vacation and five good leads..."
And with that, I leave you with a shitload of fun images.

The Canadian province of Nova Scotia lies along one of the main Atlantic shipping routes between North America and Europe. It was a key strategic location for the allies during both World Wars. Ships here were loaded with vast amounts of munitions, upon returning from the war many of these ships ditched any extra munitions they had right into the water.
Even today these World War II era munitions pose a major hazard, during World War I and II millions of tons of weapons and ammunition were produced but no one thought about what should be done with them after the fighting stopped.
It’s a ticking bomb for the environment, the Allies sank their surplus munitions off the coasts of Europe - 1.6 million tons in German waters alone. And in addition to conventional explosives, there are also highly toxic substances on the seabed, including Sarin, a mustard gas containing arsenic.

Today, you can stream Batman Begins on Netflix for the first time since the last time you could stream Batman Begins on Netflix. I would encourage you to do this, not because you haven't seen it before, or because it's important, or dark-gritty-something-something-Christopher-Nolan. That's some 2005 shit. It's time to get with the 2018 hotness: Batman Begins rules because it is goofy as hell.

Architect George Suyama wonders if his early years in a Japanese American internment camp led to his love for simplicity. "My theory is that we had nothing there so I became obsessed with little things. I was at a camp in Idaho called Minidoka and it was a tarpaper barracks. They were long shed buildings, I don't know how many families lived in them, you had one window and a stove area and there were curtains that separated one family from another. Maybe because there was nothing there that I wanted to make everything as simple as I could."
