Gov. Pence knew what he was signing, why he was signing it and who he was signing it for. Pence threw God under the bus. As the Australians say, "Weak sauce!" It wasn't even the outcry of people in his state and the rest of the country that made him blink. It was money!

Evan V. Symon, Lawrence Fama, Josh Gatewood 6 Things Chefs Don't Want You to Know About Food Trucks (Cracked)
Food trucks combine the deliciously prepared cuisine of a restaurant with the flawless atmosphere of an empty parking lot. It's no wonder we love them so. But one can't simply buy a truck, fill it with food, and start selling that food to wandering drunks. There's a whole nightmare of bureaucracy and the occasional knock-down, drag-out chef-fight to deal with first.

"Simply watching Futurama won't help you discover all the secrets hidden in every episode, you have to do some digging and go behind the scenes of the show to discover all the mysteries hidden in plain sight.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

In what decade did Christopher Latham Sholes devise the QWERTY keyboard layout?

      1870s                                                      Source

Christopher Latham Sholes (February 14, 1819 - February 17, 1890) was an American inventor who invented the first practical typewriter and the QWERTY keyboard still in use today. He was also a newspaper publisher and Wisconsin politician.        Source

The QWERTY layout was devised and created in the early 1870s by Christopher Latham Sholes, a newspaper editor and printer who lived in Milwaukee. In October 1867, Sholes filed a patent application for his early writing machine he developed with the assistance of his friends Carlos Glidden and Samuel W. Soulé.        Source

Randall was first, and correct, with:
   Accordion to Wiki, 1873

Charlie wrote:
   1870s, though one source says the idea was from 1868.

  I never watched Gunsmoke - not even as reruns in the 80s when I was a SAHM. As a child I watched Sky King, My Friend Flicka, and Fury (which is where I first began crushing on Peter Graves, who is the brother of James Arness, the star of Gunsmoke, the show I've never watched). I'm going to enjoy that bit of irony for a moment.

Marian said:

DJ Useo responded:
   Nicely played, I am stumped! My 'purely a guess' is 1880-1890.

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.

First Country To Shut Down FM Radio


Norway will shut down FM radio in the country beginning in 2017, reports. The Norwegian Ministry of Culture finalized a shift date this week, making it the first country to do away with FM radio entirely. The country plans to transition to Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) as a national standard.

A statement released this week by the Ministry of Culture confirms a switch-off date that was proposed by the Norwegian government back in 2011. The government has concluded that the country is capable of meeting all the requirements necessary for a smooth transition to digital.

FM is eight times more expensive than DAB

Several other countries in Europe and Southeast Asia are also considering a national move to DAB, but no other country has confirmed a timeline, reports.

Norway's FM shutdown will begin on January 11th, 2017.

Funds Lab for Women Screenwriters

Meryl Streep

Meryl Streep has funded a screenwriters lab for women writers over 40, to be run by New York Women in Film and Television and IRIS, a collective of women filmmakers.

The creation of the lab, and Streep's involvement in its founding, was announced Sunday at a panel discussion presented as part of the Tribeca Film Festival.

Called the Writers Lab, the screenplay development program aims to increase opportunities for female screenwriters over the age of 40. This year the initiative will accept submissions May 1-June 1, with eight winning scribes named Aug. 1.

Among the mentors to participate in the Lab's inaugural year are writer-director Gina Prince-Bythewood ("Beyond the Lights"), producer Caroline Kaplan ("Boyhood"), and writers Kirsten Smith ("Legally Blonde") and Jessica Bendinger ("Bring It On").

Gift From Sweden

Cuban Crocodiles

Cuba's efforts to sustain the critically endangered Cuban crocodile are getting a boost from Sweden, home to a pair of reptiles that Fidel Castro gave to a Soviet cosmonaut four decades ago.

A Stockholm zoo on Sunday is sending 10 of the couple's children to Cuba, where they will be placed in quarantine and eventually released into the Zapata Swamp, said Jonas Wahlstrom, the zookeeper who raised them.

The Cuban crocodile, once found across the Caribbean, is restricted today to two swamps in Cuba, where it is threatened by interbreeding with American crocodiles, habitat loss and illegal hunting.

Wahlstrom said he received his original couple during a 1981 trip to Moscow. They had ended up in the Soviet capital after Castro gave them to cosmonaut Vladimir Shatalov in the 1970s as a token of friendship between the communist nations.

Wake-up Call


Sick Veterinarian


A Texas sheriff said Saturday that he could not arrest and charge a veterinarian shown in a Facebook post bragging about killing a cat with a bow and arrow unless an investigation determines the picture of the dead cat is genuine.

Austin County Sheriff Jack Brandes said he was disturbed by the image that shows Kristen Lindsey holding up what she described as a dead feral tom cat. He has assigned two deputies and an investigator to the case.

"I've had people calling me from all over the country expressing their concern," Brandes said, speaking from a pasture while inspecting his cattle. "I just want everybody to know several things. We can't arrest and charge someone like that based on a picture on the internet. We have to make sure that is true and correct.

The operators of the clinic where Lindsey worked in Brenham, about 100 miles northwest of Houston, said Friday she was fired after they learned of the posting earlier in the week, which has since been removed, along with her Facebook account. The posting prompted hundreds of phone calls also to the Washington Animal Clinic.

Flawed Testimony


The FBI and U.S. Justice Department have acknowledged that almost all of the experts in a forensic unit dedicated to microscopic hair comparison gave flawed testimony against defendants before 2000, the Washington Post said.

The National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the Innocence Project found that 26 of the 28 examiners in the FBI's microscopic hair comparison unit overstated evidence in more than 95 percent of 268 trials that the groups have examined so far, the Post said.

Defendants and prosecutors in 46 states, along with the District of Columbia, are being advised of the findings, which could result in appealing of convictions, the newspaper said. The cases with overstated evidence included 32 that resulted in death sentences, and 14 of those defendants have been executed or died in prison.

The Post first raised the question of flawed testimony in 1980s and 1990s trials in a story in July.

Researcher Denied Flight

United Airlines

United Airlines stopped a prominent security researcher from boarding a California-bound flight late Saturday, following a social media post by the researcher days earlier suggesting the airline's onboard systems could be hacked.

The researcher, Chris Roberts, attempted to board a United flight from Colorado to San Francisco to speak at a major security conference there this week, but was stopped by the airline's corporate security at the gate. Roberts founded One World Labs, which tries to discover security risks before they are exploited.

Roberts had been removed from an earlier United flight Wednesday by the FBI and questioned for four hours after jokingly suggesting on Twitter he could get the oxygen masks on the plane to deploy. Authorities also seized his laptop and other electronics.

A lawyer for Roberts said United gave him no detailed explanation Saturday why he wasn't allowed on the plane, saying instead the airline would be sending Roberts a letter within two weeks stating why they wouldn't let him fly on their aircraft.

Replica Of Revolutionary Frigate Sets Sail

The Hermione

With champagne, fireworks and a presidential blessing, a painstakingly built replica of the frigate once used to bring French troops and funds to American revolutionaries set sail Saturday for the U.S. East Coast.

With the celebratory sendoff, the 25 million euro ($27 million) Hermione began its voyage to retrace the 65-meter (213-foot) frigate's trans-Atlantic journey in 1780, when its namesake under the Marquis de Lafayette's command helped to lay the foundation of French-American relations.

Lafayette persuaded French King Louis XVI to provide military and financial support to George Washington's troops. Lafayette set sail on the frigate on March 21, 1780, from the southwestern port of Fouras, arrived 38 days later in Boston, and played an important role in the revolutionaries' ultimate defeat of Britain three years later in the Battle of Yorktown with the support of a French army and fleet.

The Hermione is expected to reach Yorktown, Virginia, in June, and then make several other stops along the U.S. East Coast, including Boston, and should be in New York for the Fourth of July.

The ship is the fruit of nearly two decades of brainstorming, fundraising and toil. Using captains' logs and manuscripts from the era, maritime experts and historians ensured that workers used the same construction materials and methods as those used to build the original.

Weekend Box Office

'Furious 7'

The reigning box office champion might have slowed from its blockbuster debut, but "Furious 7" maintained first place for the third weekend in a row with an estimated $29.1 million, according to box office tracker Rentrak on Sunday.

"Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2" came in a close second with an estimated $24 million. While the PG-rated comedy didn't perform as well as the first film's $31.8 million opening in 2009, it did surpass Sony's modest expectations. Also, it only cost $30 million to produce.

Meanwhile, the low-budget, social media themed thriller "Unfriended" took third place with $16 million - sixteen times its production budget.

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Rentrak. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.

    1."Furious 7," $29.1 million ($167.9 million international).
    2."Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2," $24 million ($7.1 million international)
    3."Unfriended," $16 million.
    4."Home," $10.3 million (10.4 million international).
    5."The Longest Ride," $6.9 million ($2.1 million international).
    6."Get Hard," $4.8 million.
    7."Monkey Kingdom," $4.7 million.
    8."Woman In Gold," $4.6 million ($1.1 million international).
    9."The Divergent Series: Insurgent," $4.2 million ($4.1 million international).
   10."Cinderella," $3.9 million ($7.5 million international).
