Kristance Harlow: 5 Badass Facts About Women That History Books Leave Out (Cracked)
The thing that's easy to forget about history is that so much of it is bullshit. It's the result of modern people trying to piece together the past from fragments, all of it skewed by their own point of view. And that screwed-up understanding of the past changes how we think about the present.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

With Six You Get Eggroll was directed by Howard "Howie" Morris, who is probably better remembered for his role on The Andy Griffith Show as a rock-throwing, over the top "mountain man". What is the name of this eccentric character?

      Ernest T. Bass                                                      Source

Howard "Howie" Morris (September 4, 1919 - May 21, 2005) was an American comic actor and director who was best known for his role in The Andy Griffith Show as Ernest T. Bass.

Although Morris was a classically trained Shakespearean actor, he is best remembered for playing the wily and over the top "mountain man" character Ernest T. Bass on The Andy Griffith Show.

Morris directed Doris Day in her final film With Six You Get Eggroll in 1968. Other films he directed were Don't Drink the Water and Who's Minding the Mint?        Source

He was always surprised by his notoriety because he only appeared five times as Ernest T. Bass. Mountain Wedding/29 April, '63; E.T.B. Joins the Army/14 October, '63; My Fair E.T.B./3 February, '64; The Education of E.T.B./12 October, '64; Malcom at the Crossroads/27 September, '65.        Source

Thank you, Marty for the quiet tribute that I heard very clearly!

I tried to post on, but couldn't, file was locked.

Bart printed some of my email and made me feel very proud.

I found your link there, and have been reading ever since.

Can't forget a great big thank you to Mrs. Bart, for sharing him with us!

With love,

Gateway Mike.

Here's what I tried to post on

Can't believe it's been a year. I miss the page, but I try to keep up with Marty's Entertainment page (Definitely worth a look!) I keep Terry's picture on my phone and computer. When I show it to people, they ask if he is my brother. Well, we're both from the St. Louis area, and nearly the same age. I stayed here, ol' Bart went west. Terry made a difference. (definitely a compliment!)

Thanks, Mike!
If you do the FaceBook thing, there's a BartCop page.
BartBlog - The Blog of is still up & running.
And, the BartCop Forum remains.
But, yeah, a year. Sigh.



from Marc Perkel


Hello Bartcop fans,

As you all know the untimely passing of Terry was unexpected, even by him. We all knew he had cancer but we all thought he had some years left. So some of us who have worked closely with him over the years are scrambling around trying to figure out what to do. My job, among other things, is to establish communications with the Bartcop community and provide email lists and groups for those who might put something together. Those who want to play an active roll in something coming from this, or if you are one of Bart's pillars, should send an email to

Bart's final wish was to pay off the house mortgage for Mrs. Bart who is overwhelmed and so very grateful for the support she has received. Anyone wanting to make a donation can click on this the yellow donate button on

But - I need you all to help keep this going. This note isn't going to directly reach all of Bart's fans. So if you can repost it on blogs and discussion boards so people can sign up then when we figure out what's next we can let more people know. This list is just over 600 but like to get it up to at least 10,000 pretty quick. So here's the signup link for this email list.

Golf Course Landing

Harrison Ford

Harrison Ford crash-landed his vintage airplane at a Los Angeles golf course Thursday, an official said. He suffered moderate injuries and was taken to a hospital.

The actor's single-engine plane went down at about 2:30 p.m. in LA's Venice area, authorities said.

The pilot was breathing and conscious when he was taken to a hospital, where he was listed in fair to moderate condition, Los Angeles fire officials said.

The 72-year-old "Star Wars" and "Indiana Jones" actor is an aviation enthusiast who often flies out of the Santa Monica Airport. Penmar Golf Course, where the crash happened, is just west of a runway there.

The plane appeared to be a World War II-era vintage training plane. It was mostly intact after the wreck, and Ford was the only person aboard.

Files Haulin' Oats Suit

Hall and Oates

Hall and Oates are saying "no can do" to a New York company selling granola called Haulin' Oats.

The pop music duo has sued Brooklyn-based Early Bird Foods in federal court. They're accusing the company of violating trademark protections with its "phonetic play on Daryl Hall and John Oates' well-known brand name."

The suit asks the court to order Early Bird Foods to stop using the Haulin' Oats name on packages of granola. It also says the company should hand over any profits made off the brand.

Hall and Oates are best known for decades-old hits like "I Can't Go for That (No Can Do)," ''Sara Smile" and "Rich Girl."

Cops Close Oscars Dress Case

Lupita Nyong'o

The case of Lupita Nyong'o's stolen Oscars dress has been closed. Which isn't to say that it's been solved.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department closed its investigation on the stolen dress, worn by "12 Years a Slave" star Nyong'o, a spokesman for the department told TheWrap Thursday.

The case was shut down after Calvin Klein, the manufacturer of the garment, decided that it didn't want to press charges. No reason was given for Calvin Klein's decision.

Though the dress is said to be worth $150,000, according to TMZ, the dress' thief told the site that he took two of the pearls to Los Angeles' garment district, where they were appraised as fakes.

'Supercar' Legend Bows Out

Bugatti Veyron

They have fighter jet-type accelerations, custom-made interiors and seven-figure price tags: "supercars" are centre stage at the Geneva Motor Show, even as one of its legendary stars is bowing out.

The last Bugatti Veyron ever to be made has pride of place at the show for auto enthusiasts to bid farewell after the brand announced last month that it had sold the 450th and final model of the car with its 16-cylinder monster engine that produces up to 1,200 horsepower.

"With the Veyron we created a modern icon, and this show is an opportunity to put the car on a pedestal and celebrate, and say thank you to everyone involved, and close the chapter," Stefan Brungs, Bugatti's head of sales, told AFP.

Since the Veyron was unveiled to the world at the beginning of the 2000s, competitors have rushed to carve out a place in this exclusive world of cars that only the ultra-rich can afford.

Wake-up Call


The Kids Are Alright

UC Santa Cruz

Protesters shut down the campus of the University of California at Santa Cruz on Thursday, police said, on the fourth day of demonstrations that organizers said were over planned tuition hikes as well as police brutality.

Starting at dawn, demonstrators blocked a key intersection leading to the campus, the Santa Cruz police department said.

The demonstration was still going on late in the afternoon, the university said.

The protests started on Monday as part of a nationwide call to "stand up for free public education and shut down the racist, classist, corporate militarized police state," according to a Facebook page hosted by a group calling itself Liberate our Education.

Jackie Chan


Jackie Chan might still be popular in China, but nowadays the pro-Beijing actor is as well-known as fodder for jokes as he is for his gritty martial arts and slapstick humor on screen. His latest contribution to the country's mass culture and entertainment: "duang."

It's not a word, but a sound he made in an old TV commercial meaning something like "ta-da!" A new mash-up video of the old ad has made "duang" a trending topic on China's social media.

The sound began circulating days before the rubberstamp legislature was called into session this week, and some observers see it as a way for the public to question the credibility of delegates and express dissatisfaction with the political system. Chan, now a quasi-politician appointed to a legislative advisory panel, has been singled out not only because of his celebrity status but for his reputation among many Chinese as someone who has been mercenary in aligning himself politically with China's Communist Party to tap the mainland's movie market.

Chan used the sound in a 2004 infomercial to sell shampoo. In the ad, he maintains there was no "duang" - or special effects - to make his hair look blacker, shinier and softer, but that the shampoo itself was responsible. Authorities later ruled that the commercial made false claims, and Chan's reputation suffered.

Chan has been a polarizing figure on his own as well. In 2009, he spoke against freedoms in Hong Kong and Taiwan, saying, "The Chinese need to be supervised, or they will do whatever they please." Last year, he spoke against Hong Kong's democracy protests. In 2013, Beijing appointed Chan to the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, or CPPCC, the highest advisory body to the national legislature.

Border Inspection

Oh, Canada

A Canadian charged for refusing to give border agents his smartphone passcode was expected Thursday to become the first to test whether border inspections can include information stored on devices.

Alain Philippon, 38, risks up to a year in prison and a fine of up to Can$25,000 (US$20,000) if convicted of obstruction.

He told local media that he refused to provide the passcode because he considered information on his smartphone to be "personal."

Philippon was transiting through the port city of Halifax on his way home from a Caribbean vacation on Monday when he was selected for an in-depth exam.

"(It's) one thing for them to inspect it, another thing for them to compel you to help them," Rob Currie, director of the Law and Technology Institute at Dalhousie University, told public broadcaster CBC.

Ancient Civilization Uncovered


Archaeologists working in the dense jungle of Honduras have found dozens of artifacts at a site where they believe twin cities from an ancient civilization once thrived, the head of the country's anthropology institute said on Wednesday.

The artifacts unearthed at the site, in the eastern Mosquitia region of Honduras, point to a civilization with advanced artistic and engineering skills and are distinct from ancient Mayan cites also known to the region, said Virgilio Paredes, head of the national anthropology and history institute.

Paredes said 52 objects, including mostly-buried stone sculptures resembling men and jaguars as well as the remains of a pyramid and other structures, have been identified by a team of specialists from the United States and Honduras.

He said it is not clear if the discovery is related to the mythical White City first mentioned by Spanish colonizers in the 16th century or the lost "City of the Monkey God" popularized by American explorer Theodore Morde who claimed he made the discovery in the same region of Honduras in 1939.

The pre-Colombian ruins are believed to date from between 1,000 and 1,200 A.D. and were first detected in 2012 using aerial mapping techniques.




In Memory

Daniel von Bargen

Daniel von Bargen, who played George Costanza's dim-witted boss Mr. Kruger on "Seinfeld," has died. He was 64.

Von Bargen died Sunday in the Cincinnati area, Harry Gilligan, owner of Gilligan Funeral Homes, confirmed Thursday. Gilligan said he couldn't provide the cause of death, names of relatives or any other information. WLWT-TV in Cincinnati first reported the death.

In addition to his "Seinfeld" role, von Bargen portrayed Commandant Edwin Spangler on "Malcolm in the Middle." His film credits include "The Silence of the Lambs," ''O Brother, Where Art Thou?" and "Lord of Illusions." He also had appearances on "Law & Order," ''The West Wing" and "NYPD Blue."

Von Bargen made headlines in 2012 when he called 911 after shooting himself in the temple. He told police he was supposed to go to a hospital that day to have some toes amputated because of diabetes complications and had already had one leg amputated. He said he was feeling depressed before he shot himself.

No funeral services were scheduled, Gilligan said.
