Trivia Question from Yesterday

How many sides does an icosahedron have?

       Twenty                                                      Source

In geometry, an icosahedron is a polyhedron with 20 faces. The name comes from Greek, meaning "twenty", and "seat". The plural can be either "icosahedra" or "icosahedrons".        Source

This started out to be a question about the Magic 8 Ball - The Magic 8 Ball is a hollow plastic sphere resembling an oversized, black-and-white 8-ball. Inside a cylindrical reservoir contains a white, plastic, icosahedral die floating in alcohol dyed dark blue. Each of the die's 20 faces has an affirmative, negative, or non-committal statement printed in raised letters. These messages are read through a window on the ball's bottom.

But I screwed up and asked for sides, not faces, so it's a can o'worms.

Alan J was first and correct with:

Randall replied:
  accordion to Wiki, the icosahedron has 12 vertices, 20 faces

  and 30 sides...
  does that make sense?

Reader Comment


I assume you've seen the video that a news outlet released today of Lumpy, in disgustingly graphic language, bragging to Billy Bush during an Access Hollywood interview about sexually assaulting women and saying that he's entitled to do it because he's a "star."

I also assume you've seen that Paul Ryan has uninvited Lumpy from appearing with him at a campaign event. Of course, the Trump people are trying to cover that up by saying that Lumpy is doing debate prep instead. Right. Sure. Tell me another whopper.

I don't even know where to begin--it's a true glimpse into the sick, disgusting, vile mind of Lumpy; it can NOT be brushed off as just typical "locker room" talk; an apology does NOT magically undo such perverted "standards" and actions.

I've even heard Lumpy try to brush it off saying he said such things as "entertainment" because at the time he was an entertainer, implying that now that he's a "politician," he'll act more seemly. He's NOT entertaining. He's NOT an entertainer. He HASN'T stopped saying disgusting, vile, rude things about women (or immigrants or Latinos or the handicapped or Muslims or anyone who's not one of his white supremacist followers).

I might follow the example of Joseph Welch and ask " At long last, have you left no sense of decency?" But it is apparent that Lumpy indeed has no concept of decency. No bar is too low for him or his admirers.

T-rump A "Damaged Human Being...To Be Shunned"

David Letterman

Donald Trump was a frequent guest on David Letterman's Late Show in the years before his current presidential campaign. But Letterman stepped down from his position as host of the CBS late-night show before the real estate mogul announced his Republican bid for president. In the early days of Trump's campaign, when the candidate's outlandish comments were still seen by many as a source of amusement, Letterman jokingly lamented retiring before he was able to partake in the late-night comedy gift of Trump's run.

But now that Trump is the Republican nominee for president, Letterman no longer finds him funny, calling his behavior that of a "damaged human being" and saying his reluctance to apologize for seemingly offensive comments and acts makes him "a person to be shunned."

"I've known Donald Trump for a long time and I always thought he was exactly what New York City needed to have: the big, blowhard billionaire. 'By God, I'm Donald Trump and I date models and I put up buildings, and everything is gold.' Nobody took him seriously, and people loved him when he would come on the show. I would make fun of his hair, I would call him a slumlord, I would make fun of his ties. And he could just take a punch like nothing. He was the perfect guest," Letterman tells the New York Times in an interview tied to his involvement in the National Geographic series Years of Living Dangerously.

But now, Letterman says, he's been disturbed by how Trump has continued to offend without anyone stopping him. Letterman indicates he was particularly turned off when Trump appeared to mock a reporter with a disability.

"Right out of the box, he goes after immigrants and how they're drug dealers and they're rapists. And everybody swallows hard. And they think, oh, well, somebody'll take him aside and say, 'Don, don't do that.' But it didn't happen," Letterman continues. "And then, I can remember him doing an impression, behind a podium, of a reporter for The New York Times who has a congenital disorder. And then I thought, if this was somebody else - if this was a member of your family or a next-door neighbor, a guy at work - you would immediately distance yourself from that person. And that's what I thought would happen. Because if you can do that in a national forum, that says to me that you are a damaged human being. If you can do that and not apologize, you're a person to be shunned."

Paisley Park Open To Public


Music fans around the world and Minnesota residents have long wondered about Paisley Park, the late pop icon Prince's mysterious studio complex to which few have had full access.

On Thursday, the mystery came to an end for some fans who snared tour tickets and descended on the Minneapolis suburb of Chanhassen to see inside the late "Purple Rain" star's 55,000-square-foot (5,100-square-meter) inner sanctum.

The unveiling was decidedly muted. Organizers required ticket holders to meet at an offsite location and be bused into the complex in groups.

Fans described the tour as an emotional experience, especially when they were confronted by Prince's ashes in a Paisley Park replica urn.

Public access to Paisley Park was expected to be short-lived, as Chanhassen city officials granted temporary permits on three dates for the complex to offer tours.

City Celebrates


The Dutch city of Hoorn erupted with joy Friday as it welcomed back five masterpieces recovered from a "criminal group" in Ukraine after being snatched from the town's museum in 2005.

"After 4,320 days... yes we counted the days... they are back!" an emotional museum director Ad Geerdink told hundreds of citizens who gathered at the Westfries Museum as the 17th and 18th-century paintings were unloaded from a truck.

"Our heritage has returned to the museum where they belong, back in the city where they belong," Geerdink said as the crowd cheered and clapped.

The five paintings were among 24 Dutch Golden Age masterpieces and 70 pieces of silverware stolen from the museum in the northwest city on January 9, 2005.

At the time of their disappearance, the 24 paintings were valued at a total of around 10 million euros ($11 million).

Indian Ad

Pierce Brosnan

Former 007 star Pierce Brosnan sparked ridicule on social media Friday by starring in a new James Bond-style spoof commercial for an Indian mouth freshener that left fans shaken and stirred.

In adverts for Indian TV channels, newspapers and billboards, the now bearded Brosnan cut a familiar pose as he grappled with villains, flirted with beautiful women and took a spin in a high-end sports car.

But instead of concealing a Walter PKK within his immaculately-tailored tuxedo, Brosnan was revealed to be carrying a can of pan masala -- a mixture of betel nut and spices that leaves lurid red stains on the mouth after being chewed or when it is spat out.

"Class never goes out of style," the 63-year-old Irish actor says at end of the commercial for the Pan Bahar brand.

The new ad triggered a flurry of jokes, sarcastic comments and photoshopped images of Brosnan on social media, with his lips stained red or his head superimposed onto the torso of a tobacconist clad in a grubby singlet.

Makes History With Zero Major Newspaper Endorsements


With just a little over a month until election day, Donald Trump has racked up zero major newspaper endorsements, a first for any major party nominee in American history.

While newspaper endorsements don't necessarily change voters' minds, this year's barrage of anti-Trump endorsements could actually move the needle come November, experts say.

Some conservative papers, which have endorsed Republicans for decades, are now breaking with tradition to endorse Hillary Clinton or, at the very least, urge their readers not to vote for Trump.

Several have taken a stand even at the expense of losing subscribers at a time when newspapers are barely staying afloat. Some papers have received death threats.

But for a growing number of newspaper editorial boards, staying on the sidelines is no longer an option.

To Sign Paris Accord


Japan will seek to ratify the 2015 Paris Climate Change Agreement to cut emissions and prevent climate change as soon as possible, after support from European nations sent the accord over an important threshold earlier this week.

"We would like to make our best efforts to complete ratification as soon as possible," Japanese environment minister Koichi Yamamoto told a news conference on Friday, adding the government will submit a ratification bill to parliament as early as Oct. 11.

However, approval may take weeks and if Japan misses the Nov. 4 implementation date for the agreement, that could limit its ability to influence negotiations on the finer details of the agreement. Those talks are set to formally start during the COP-22 meeting in Morocco next month.

Backing for the accord from several European nations, Canada, Bolivia and Nepal this week pushed the agreement past the 55 percent of emitters limit needed for implementation, with U.S. President Barack Obama calling for other nations to sign up "as soon as possible."

The agreement is meant to cut global greenhouse gas emissions, mainly from burning fossil fuels, to limit floods, droughts, more powerful storms and rising ocean levels.

Files Defamation Suit

Burke Ramsey

The older brother of JonBenet Ramsey filed a defamation lawsuit Thursday against a Michigan forensic pathologist who told a Detroit-area media outlet that Burke Ramsey killed his 6-year-old sister.

The complaint alleges that Dr. Werner Spitz said in a Sept. 19 interview that 9-year-old Burke bludgeoned JonBenet to death in 1996.

"Spitz made this accusation without ever examining JonBenet's body, without viewing the crime scene, and without consulting with the pathologist who performed the autopsy on JonBenet," the complaint filed in Wayne County Circuit Court in Detroit says.

The lawsuit accuses Spitz of being a publicity seeker "with a history of interjecting himself in high profile cases."

Burke Ramsey, now 29 and living in the Charlevoix area in northern Michigan, is seeking a jury trial and at least $150 million in damages.

A Brief Compendium of when Buttons Ruled the Earth


T-rump's Ongoing Obsession

Central Park Five

Back in 1989, decades before Donald Trump (R-Pendejo) was extolling the virtues of law and order on the presidential debate stage, he purchased a full-page newspaper ad that all but called for the execution of five black and Hispanic teenagers who turned out to be innocent of the crime of which they were accused. In 2016, rather than renouncing his barbarous younger self, Donald Trump is still talking about the Central Park Five.

Some quick background: A 28-year-old white woman was jogging through Central Park one night when she was attacked, raped, beaten with a rock until she suffered brain damage, tied up, and abandoned. The police, the tabloids, and the people of the city were understandably eager to find the perpetrator, and a group of boys-eventually known as the Central Park Five-were arrested and convicted for the unspeakably gruesome assault.

The episode was an unusually good opportunity for Donald Trump to pursue the obsession that animated him in those days, before he had a network TV show or a presidential campaign: getting his name into the New York City newspapers. He purchased full-page ads in the New York Daily News, New York Times, New York Post, and Newsday with the headline "BRING BACK THE DEATH PENALTY. BRING BACK OUR POLICE!" The ads, which ran about two weeks after the attack, did not mention the Five by name, but a line about criminals who "beat and rape a helpless woman" clearly referenced them.

In 2002, another man, who'd been convicted of another rape and murder, confessed to the attack in Central Park that night, claiming that he'd acted alone. Investigators matched that man's DNA with DNA found in semen on the victim's body. None of the Five's DNA was ever connected to the scene. They were exonerated, after some of them had spent a decade in prison, and the city paid out a $41 million settlement to them in 2014.

A CNN reporter asked Trump this week for his thoughts on the case, nearly 30 years after he called his Old Testament fury down upon five innocent boys. "They admitted they were guilty," he said. "The police doing the original investigation say they were guilty. The fact that that case was settled with so much evidence against them is outrageous. And the woman, so badly injured, will never be the same."

First Settlers Came From Asia


The first settlers of the far-flung Pacific islands of Tonga and Vanuatu likely arrived from Taiwan and the northern Philippines between 2,300 and 3,100 years ago, a new genetic analysis suggests.

Ancient DNA extracted from skeletons at two archaeological sites on the islands helps paint this picture of how the remotest reaches of the Pacific were first colonized.

"The people of Vanuatu today are descended from Asia first of all. They were straight out of Taiwan and perhaps the northern Philippines," study co-author Matthew Spriggs, an archaeologist and anthropologist at the Australian National University, said in a statement.

The new findings suggest that on their route out of Asia, these first settlers may have bypassed closer areas, such as Australia and Papua New Guinea, which have been occupied by ancient populations for at least 40,000 years.

The peopling of the remote, far-flung islands of the Pacific has long been one of humanity's most incredible journeys. Ancient ancestors to modern-day occupants of Oceania, which centers on the islands of the tropical Pacific, paddled their way in outrigger canoes across thousands of miles of ocean dotted with thousands of tiny islands, occupying each in turn.

Do you have a great album no one's heard?
How about a favorite TV show, movie, book, play, cartoon, or legal amusement?
A popular artist that just plain pisses you off?
A box set the whole world should own?
Vile, filthy rumors about Republican hypocrites?

Just plain vile, filthy rumors?
