Here's SBNation's Big-Ass preview of the new season so you'll know the difference between Leicester City & Manchester City. [SBNation EPL]
  • Who killed the metric system in America? I mean, cool, because Murika, but seriously? [Slate]
  • In the immortal words of Tracy Jordan, "Live every week like it's Shark Week." These people actually do that, in a very literal sense. [Huff Post]

How much sleep do we actually need? For me, probably "more." Science Saturday with a less vague answer!

That's it today - send me more.
