1. Grab that Remote, It's Fall TV Time, beotches!

Time to lace up your Taylor Swift-issue Keds, grab your retro backpack, and queue up your DVR so you don't miss these awesome new Science Fiction and Fantasy Shows on TV This Fall!

2. Hunger Games IRL at the Olympics

During the men's marathon on Sunday, Ethiopian long-distance runner Feyisa Lilesa pulled a Hunger Games moment and showed his support for the Oromo Protests in his home country by making a specific motion with his arms:

Showing the sign is highly political though, so when he spoke a press conference after the marathon he said what he risked with the gesture, "If I go back to Ethiopia maybe they will kill me," he said, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

"If I am not killed maybe they will put me in prison. [If ] they [do] not put me in prison they will block me at airport. I have got a decision. Maybe I move to another country."

Like the Hunger Games, let's hope the people can rise above this oppression.

Check it out in action here.

They reinterpreted the FAA's "visual line-of-sight of the operator" rule by simply deploying their drones directly from inside their trucks, easily in sight of their drivers. This simple fix had thwarted Amazon for months.

Snoop Dogg, the world's most chill weed advocate, is taking on the NFL's desire to have access to guns in a new Instagram video.

Snoop takes issue with the NFL wanting to give football players access to guns but not access to weed. He successfully argues that football is already a violent profession which lends itself to perpetuating a violent environment amongst the players, and that weed would be a panacea to this problem of violence and allow the players some respite from their aggressive environment.

He even reached out the NFL to offer his services as an advocate to make this change happen:

Do it, Snoop.
