Paul Krugman: My Unicorn Problem (NY Times Blog)
OK, so I'm not happy with magical unicorns as a campaign strategy. But I understand the problem, which is also the problem Clinton faces: among young people in particular, being a wet blanket is no way to be hugely popular. "No, we can't - at best, maybe a little" isn't all that inspiring to people who want uplift. Realistically, the slogan should actually be "They shall not pass", which actually could be inspiring. But that's probably for the general [election].

Phillip Lopate: "Speedy: The Comic Figure of the Average Man" (Criterion)
In his memoir, An American Comedy (cowritten with Wesley W. Stout), Harold Lloyd asserts that while growing up "I was average and typical of the time and place." He continues: "Supposing Atlantic City had been holding Average American Boy contests, with beauty waived, I might have been Master America most any year between 1893 and 1910." This insistence was not random; it suited someone who doggedly set out to create a type on-screen as close as he could make it to an average specimen-a mirror image of the American audience.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

On 19 September 1783, the Montgolfier brothers' balloon Aerostat Réveillon was flown with the first (non-human) living creatures in a basket attached to the balloon: a rooster, a duck and a ____?____.

       Sheep                                                      Source

On 19 September 1783, the Montgolfier brothers' balloon Aerostat Réveillon was flown with the first (non-human) living creatures in a basket attached to the balloon: a sheep called Montauciel ("Climb-to-the-sky"), a duck and a rooster. The sheep was believed to have a reasonable approximation of human physiology. The duck was expected to be unharmed by being lifted aloft. It was included as a control for effects created by the aircraft rather than the altitude. The rooster was included as a further control as it was a bird that did not fly at high altitudes. This demonstration was performed before a crowd at the royal palace in Versailles, before King Louis XVI of France and Queen Marie Antoinette. The flight lasted approximately eight minutes, covered two miles (3 km), and obtained an altitude of about 1,500 feet (460 m). The craft landed safely after flying.        Source

Alan J was first and correct with:
   A sheep.

Lois Of The Cosmos! replied:
   What do you get when you put a sheep, a duck, and a rooster in box and send it 1500 feet into the atmosphere for eight minutes?
  You get a lot of fucked up farm animals! Never trust a rooster! Exhibit A:
    A farmer buys a rooster to service his 200 hens. When he gets the rooster into the barnyard, he tells him, "Randy, I want you to pace yourself now. You've got a lot of chickens to service here, and you cost me a lot of money. Have fun, but take your time."
    The farmer points him toward the henhouse and the rooster takes off like a shot.
    WHAM! Randy nails every hen in the henhouse, three or four times. Randy runs out and sees a flock of geese down by the lake. WHAM! He nails all the geese. Randy runs to the pigpen, the cow pasture -- soon, he's been on every animal on the farm.
    The farmer is distraught, worried that his expensive rooster won't even last the day.
    Sure enough, the farmer wakes up the next morning to find Randy laid out flat in the middle of the yard, buzzards circling overhead.
    The sad farmer shakes his head and says, "Oh, Randy, I told you to pace yourself."
    Randy opens one eye, winks, and nods towards the sky, "Shhh, they're getting closer."

Acquires Rotten Tomatoes


2015 was a record-breaking year for Fandango, with the site breaking one billion visits, but 2016 is off to a pretty impressive start, too: The online movie ticketing service announced Wednesday that it has signed an agreement to acquire the popular digital platforms Rotten Tomatoes and Flixster from Warner Bros. Entertainment.

Fans of the services don't have to worry about Flixster and Rotten Tomatoes disappearing; they will both remain consumer-facing brands, according to Fandango. Instead, the platforms will now be able to be complement each other in interesting ways and create what the company describes as "the industry's premier digital network for all things movies." For example, Fandango's ticketing capabilities will be soon be added to the Flixster app.

Warner Bros. won't be completely cut out of the picture, either. The entertainment company will take a minority ownership stake in Fandango, which is a subsidiary of NBCUniversal, and will be involved as a strategic partner.

Fandango also recently acquired the on-demand video service M-Go, so with all the recent additions combined, the company looks poised to continue its noteworthy performance.

Japanese Hunters Evade, Kill Hundreds of Whales

Sea Shepherd

Where on Earth are the whalers?

That question is vexing activists from the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, who have failed to locate the Japanese whaling fleet during this season's hunt fo rminke whales in the Southern Ocean.

Every year over the past decade, Sea Shepherd vessels out of Australia have shadowed the Japanese fleet to monitor the annual hunt and interfere with the killing of whales. But not this year. The whalers have managed to evade Sea Shepherd by expanding their hunting grounds.

"They have dramatically expanded their hunting area threefold, moving eastward towards Chile and westwards towards South Africa," said Sea Shepherd founder Paul Watson. "They could be anywhere."

Even worse for Sea Shepherd, only one of its vessels, the Steve Irwin, is in the Southern Ocean. The group's two other ships that can navigate the Southern Ocean are in the Faroe Islands trying to stop the pilot whale hunt in the North Atlantic archipelago.

Court Upholds Dismissal Of Suit

'Hurt Locker'

A federal appeals court ruled Wednesday that an Iraq War veteran cannot sue the makers of the "The Hurt Locker" because he believes the Oscar-winning film portrayed him in a bad light.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled a lower court's dismissal of Sgt. Jeffrey Sarver's 2009 lawsuit against director Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal was proper. Sarver, a bomb-disposal technician who was shadowed by Boal in Iraq, contended the film defamed him by portraying him as obsessed with death.

The court disagreed, saying the film was protected by the First Amendment and its fictional protagonist, even if he is based on Sarver, was shown to be a heroic figure.

The ruling states the justices agreed that reasonable viewers of the movie "would be left with the conclusion that the character Will James was a heroic figure, albeit one struggling with certain internal conflicts."

The ruling further stated, " 'The Hurt Locker' is speech that is fully protected by the First Amendment, which safeguards the storytellers and artists who take the raw materials of life - including the stories of real individuals, ordinary or extraordinary - and transform them into art, be it articles, books, movies, or plays."

Jury Acquits Ohio Man Of Stalking

Gwyneth Paltrow

A jury acquitted an Ohio man on Wednesday of stalking Gwyneth Paltrow after prosecutors said he sent her dozens of unsolicited letters and gifts in recent years.

The case against Dante Soiu, 66, was the second in which he was accused of stalking the actress.

The Columbus native was committed to a mental institution in the early 2000s after he was accused of sending lewd messages and sex toys to the actress and found not guilty by reason of insanity.

Jury foreman Ryan Austin said jurors found Paltrow and Soiu were credible witnesses, but the panel ultimately had doubts that Soiu intended to frighten the actress.

He said the jury thought Soiu's conduct was reprehensible, especially in light of the previous pornographic messages to the actress, but didn't amount to felony stalking.

Wake-up Call


Nike Drops

Manny Pacquiao

Manny Pacquiao's latest disparaging comments about gays have cost him a contract with Nike.

It may not be the only endorsement Pacquiao loses, even as he and promoter Bob Arum scramble to contain the damage done by a television interview in the Philippines in which the boxer said gay people "are worse than animals."

Nike issued a brief statement Wednesday saying it was severing its ties with the boxer over his comments about gays. The company said it no longer will have any business dealings with the boxer.

Pacquiao, a congressman who is now running for Senate in the Philippines, made the comments to a television station that was asking candidates about their views on same sex marriage.

"What he said is completely for home consumption for Filipinos wrestling with the question of legalizing same sex marriage," Arum said.

Human Feces Left Human Feces


The FBI said it has found a trench of human feces and a road excavated on or next to a sensitive cultural site with artifacts at the Oregon wildlife refuge where armed men staged a standoff with authorities, according to court records filed on Tuesday.

The filing came after the FBI on Friday said it was working with the Burns Paiute Tribe to identify damage to the tribe's artifacts and sacred burial grounds at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge during the six-week occupation.

Evidence teams began processing the crime scenes at the refuge on Saturday, two days after the final occupiers surrendered, and the process will last about three weeks, according to the document submitted in Oregon federal court on Tuesday.

U.S. Attorney Billy Williams of Oregon wrote in the filing that investigators found "significant amounts of human feces" in a trench at an outdoor camping area that was either on or next to a "sensitive cultural site."

The cost of the standoff will likely run into the millions of dollars, with local and state agencies looking to the federal government - and the arrested occupiers - to shoulder the bulk of the bills.

Gambled Away $100M Fortune

David Milch

Most gamblers limit themselves to modest amounts, and the average American wagers only a few hundred dollars a year. But a small percentage risk everything. Their habit has cost them pain, suffering, embarrassment and debt. They've lost houses, property, friendships, dignity, self-respect, the faith of others and perhaps their faith in themselves. They are addicts.

David Milch is one of them.

Milch, 70, is a four-time Emmy-winning writer-producer who co-created the classic series NYPD Blue and HBO's acclaimed Deadwood. A former English literature professor at Yale, he is known for his cerebral and unorthodox approach to writing, for the profanity of his dialogue and the precision of his plots, for elevating the very possibilities of the once-maligned medium in which he works.

For the past few years, he has been based in an exclusive deal at HBO and is in negotiations to renew it. He is working on an adaptation of Peter Matthiessen's novel Shadow Country, with Jeff Bridges attached to star as 19th century outlaw Edgar "Bloody" Watson. He also is devel­oping a two-hour TV movie version of Deadwood. He has admirers and fans across the spectrum of the television world, though he has not had a successful show since Deadwood ended in 2006.

Judging from the accounts of several men and women who know him well, he is a person of extreme talent but also extreme behavior. Now a lawsuit, which was filed last year and is proceeding in Los Angeles Superior Court in Santa Monica, indicates that he lost $25 million from gambling between 2000 and 2011 alone. Colleagues estimate he has earned more than $100 million across his three-decade Hollywood career, but the lawsuit reveals he is left with $17 million in debts.

Mystery 'Hobbits'

Homo Floresiensis

Diminutive humans that died out on an Indonesian island some 15,000 years ago were not Homo sapiens but a different species, according to a study published Monday that dives into a fierce anthropological debate.

Fossils of Homo floresiensis -- dubbed "the hobbits" due to their tiny stature -- were discovered on the island of Flores in 2003.

Controversy has raged ever since as to whether they are an unknown branch of early humans or specimens of modern man deformed by disease.

The new study, based on an analysis of the skull bones, shows once and for all that the pint-sized people were not Homo sapiens, according to the researchers.

For while the scientists could not exclude the possibility that the "hobbit" was a scaled-down version of Homo erectus, which arrived on the neighbouring island of Java some million years ago, nor could they be sure that H. floresiensis was not a species it its own right.
