I asked people who follow me on Twitter to come up with more interesting titles for the forthcoming Sarah Palin television show on TLC than the rather bland "Sarah Palin's Alaska." Following are ten the submissions which caused me to spew the largest spews of coffee on my monitor due to involuntary LOL.
• MYTHMAKERS (@DavidHains )
• NATURE'S DEATH PANELS (@dunagan23)
• PALINTOLOGY (@iheartmuseums )
• WHALIN' WITH PALIN (@hmobius)
• THE BEWILDERNESS (@james_atomic)
• TRAILIN' PALIN (@invisiblea)
• WIFE ON EARTH (@fcw)
• NORTHERN OVEREXPOSURE (@JIMWICh)
• THE BEVERLY SNOWBILLIES (@drhypercube)
• Untitled nature show narrated by David Attenborough, in which the entire family is eaten alive by pack of starving cheetahs. (@dr_ultimately)
Read more about the deal at the New York Times. And The Awl has what I believe to be the one must-read post about the whole affair: "Sarah Palin's 'Planet Earth' and the End Times."

The ARMOR-X Mini Flexible Phone Tripod is a smartphone tripod that is designed with flexible legs to rest on virtually any type of surface. Other tripods have proved useless unless I conveniently have a flat surface in front of me, which is why this particular tripod was appealing enough to try out. The ARMOR-X is compact and easy […]
You don’t need to get an advanced degree and take out massive loans to become a coder. This bundle of 10 courses was designed to teach anyone to code at home for less than it costs to go out for dinner. I was particularly impressed with this new 2017 bundle because it includes courses on […]
