—Some great American briefly changed the Wikipedia entry for United States Secretary of Defense to U.S. Men’s National Team goalkeeper Tim Howard. In Tuesday’s loss to Belgium, Howard had the most saves in a World Cup game since FIFA started keeping track in 2002, saving 16 shots and allowing only two goals.

—The house that served as the interior set for doomed prom queen Laura Palmer’s house in the 1990 David Lynch mystery series “Twin Peaks” can be yours for $549,950 — with Laura’s rocking chair thrown in for good measure. Just watch out for Bob!

—Barbie FINALLY enters the 21st century with her own profile on LinkedIn. The Mattel doll’s employment history doesn’t include her extensive job history, including stints as an astronaut, veterinarian and real estate agent, but she shares job-hunting tips. “While a one-page resume is best, I can’t seem to get mine under twenty,” she quips in one post.

The Internet’s best Twitter users took over Robin Thicke’s Q&A on Tuesday. While the session was supposed to support Thicke’s latest album, “Paula,” the hashtag #AskThicke was quickly hijacked by users who view the pop singer’s music as misogynistic (think “Blurred Lines”), his pining for estranged wife Paula Patton stalkery (he named his album after her) and his VMA performance with Miley Cyrus as creepy.

—James Madison University’s Nap Nooks since the Fall 2013 semester have been providing students with a place to catch a few zzz’s in between classes. A senior psychology major instituted the sleeping spots to promote healthy sleeping habits. Students can reserve a beanbag in the Nap Nook for 40 minutes of shut eye. God bless America.
