Last Week at the Links – 2.16.15

Weekly round-up time!

-Remember that amazing legal contract in The Hobbit (the Film). The one with the amazing fold out bits that Bilbo reads over, rejects, and only later signs.

So, not only can you purchase a handmade replica (which looks gorgeous), but you can also read an in-depth legal analysis at wired.com.

Because they actually wrote a legitimate legal contract.

Whatever problems The Hobbit has (and it has many) that is amazing.

– Speaking of The Lord of the Rings, welcome to one of the dumbest things you will read this week; a 9 year old Texas boy who was suspended from school for telling his friend that he had brought The One Ring to school and would use it to destroy him.

My favorite quote is from the boys father;

“I assure you my son lacks the magical powers necessary to threaten his friend’s existence,” the boy’s father later wrote in an email. “If he did, I’m sure he’d bring him right back.”

Come on, Texas. Stop criminalizing imagination.

– I would like you to watch GameStop’s amazing training video, wherein they will reveal the secrets of how to speak to that most eliusive of creatures…the woman.

More after the break…
