John Coffey singer catches beer while crowdwalking, and drinks it! (The original) (YouTube)
"Watch this stunt that combines skill, trust, luck, and balls. Dutch singer David Achter de Mole was performing with his group John Coffey at the Pinkpop Festival in Landgraaf, Netherlands and went "crowdwalking" on the hands and shoulders of concertgoers. Someone throws a beer -in a cup- and he deftly catches it and drinks it like that's nothing. Sweet!" - Neatorama
Sonia Phyllis Hurwitz (January 17, 1933 - August 2, 1998) better known as Shari Lewis was an American ventriloquist, puppeteer, and children's entertainer and television show host. She was best known as the original puppeteer of sock puppet Lamb Chop, first appearing on Hi Mom, a local morning show that aired on WRCA-TV (now WNBC-TV) in New York City.
In addition to her other work, Lewis provided the voice of the Princess, in a cartoon segment "Arabian Knights" (1967) of The Banana Splits Adventure Hour. With her husband, Jeremy Tarcher, she co-wrote an episode for the original series of Star Trek, "The Lights of Zetar" (1969). Lewis wrote over 60 books for children.
Alan J was first, and correct, with:
One, "The Lights of Zetar"
Shari Lewis wrote some episodes of Star Trek?
Lamb Chop Shari Lewis?
man... I gotta look this one up...
I'll be damned... looks like the answer is ONE!
"The Lights of Zetar"
Dale of Diamond Springs, Hotnorcali replied:
Shari Lewis and her husband, Jeremy Tarcher, wrote one Star Trek episode, "The Lights of Zetar" (1969). Accompanied by her artless humdrum sock puppets that little piece of mouse meat replaced "The Howdy Doody Show."
Lois Of Oregon responded:
Apparently Shari Lewis was a huge "Star Trek" fan and
co-wrote one of the more embarrassing and forgettable
episodes where Scotty falls in love! She wanted to play the
part of his romantic interest herself, but sadly was not
allowed. Lamb Chop, however, struck out on her own and
landed a plumb role in "Alien".
DJ Useo said:
An easy question for a trekkie like me. She co-wrote one episode.
A pretty good episode, imho. But then, I even like Ultraman. Lol.
@ Dale - Nice work yesterday providing evidence of strippers' femininity.

One ~ They co-wrote episode "Star Trek" The Lights of Zetar in 1966. A mysterious, twinkling mass of sapient energy ravages an important archive and Scotty's new girlfriend may be linked to it.
Jim from CA, retired to ID, answered:
Headed back to Idaho........1....The Lights of Zetar
Joe S replied:
Just one. I thought it might be "The Trouble With Tribbles," But it's not. It was "The Lights of Zetar." Zetar is obviously a made up name as I've never heard of it.
Patriot Act NSA Spying Unconstitutional Section 215 National Security Letters Must End
My name is Marc Perkel and I have decided to announce that I will not comply with the so called "Patriot Act" laws requiring me to disclose information about my customers. If I receive a national security letter I will immediately photograph it, post it online everywhere I can, and then make a video of me burning it. I will then await my arrest. If you want to put me in jail then come get me mother fucker.
Went to fire up the computer and was met with the dreaded windows "3-beep" salute.
Turned out to be dust. Lots and lots of dust. Years worth of dust.
Enough dust, my grandmother would have said, to make another Adam.

Brian Williams won't return as NBC "Nightly News" anchor at the conclusion of his suspension for misrepresenting his role in a news story and following an investigation into other alleged misstatements.
The New York Times and CNN both reported an announcement on Williams' future is expected on Thursday. NBC News officials and Robert Barnett, Williams' representative in negotiations with the network over the past several weeks, would not comment Wednesday on the reports.
Williams and NBC have been discussing an undefined role for him at the network. Lester Holt has subbed for Williams on NBC's evening newscast and is the odds-on favourite to be his permanent replacement.
NBC has been tight-lipped about its negotiations with Williams, who signed a new contract to be the network's chief news anchor last fall.
Donald Trump's big presidential announcement Tuesday was made a little bigger with help from paid actors - at $50 a pop.
New York-based Extra Mile Casting sent an email last Friday to its client list of background actors, seeking extras to beef up attendance at Trump's event.
"We are looking to cast people for the event to wear t-shirts and carry signs and help cheer him in support of his announcement," reads the June 12 email, obtained by The Hollywood Reporter. "We understand this is not a traditional 'background job,' but we believe acting comes in all forms and this is inclusive of that school of thought."
The pay was listed as $50 for fewer than three hours of work. According to the email, Extra Mile was reaching out to potential extras in partnership with Gotham Government Relations and Communications, a New York-Based political consulting group that has worked with Trump in the past. Gotham GR had no comment.
Contrary to what the gun lobby argues, personal firearms in the United States are rarely used for self-defense, a gun control advocacy group said Wednesday.
In an analysis of FBI and other federal government data, the non-profit Violence Policy Center said Americans are far more likely to hurt themselves or others when handling a lethal weapon.
In 2012, it said, only 259 "justifiable homicides" involving a private citizen were reported, compared to 8,342 criminal homicides committed with a gun.
Put another way, for every justifiable homicide involving a gun, 32 criminal homicides carried out with a firearm occurred. And that does not take into account "tens of thousands" of gun-related suicides and unintentional shootings.
When actor Michael Douglas learned that he had been chosen to receive the "Jewish Nobel Prize," he pointed out a small problem: Under strict religious law, the Oscar-winning actor isn't Jewish.
Douglas, who only recently has embraced his Jewish roots, is vowing to use the $1 million Genesis Prize to build bridges between Israel and increasingly assimilated Jewish communities around the world.
Douglas, accompanied by his wife, actress Catherine Zeta-Jones, and their two children, is in Israel this week to accept the Genesis Prize. Jay Leno will host the high-powered event, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is scheduled to present the award.
For Douglas, the Genesis Prize - to be awarded on Thursday - caps a process that was generations in the making. His father, actor Kirk Douglas, was born Issur Danielovitch to Russian immigrant parents and raised as an Orthodox Jew. But he drifted away from his faith. Michael Douglas' mother, actress Diane Dill, is not Jewish.
A toxic algae bloom in the Pacific Ocean stretching from California north to Washington state might be the largest ever detected off the U.S. West Coast, scientists said on Tuesday.
The bloom, which first appeared in May, involves microscopic algae that produce a neurotoxin potentially fatal to humans called domoic acid, according to researchers at the University of California at Santa Cruz.
Levels of domoic acid in California's Monterey Bay are some of the highest scientists have ever observed, Raphael Kudela, professor of ocean sciences at the Santa Cruz campus, said in a statement.
The acid has been responsible for several deaths and has sickened more than 100 people, according to the Washington state Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Watson, who was awarded Nobel prize in 1962 for a discovery in the DNA studies, said he was going to give support to young scientists from Russia and China. His Nobel medal that was sold at an auction to Russian businessman Alisher Usmanov last year, was returned to him during his visit.

There's something of a whodunit going on in the Vatican to discover who leaked Pope Francis' environment encyclical to an Italian newsweekly, deflating the release of the most anticipated and feared papal document in recent times.
L'Espresso magazine published the full 191 pages of "Laudato Si" (Be Praised) on its website Monday, three days before the official launch. The Vatican said it was just a draft, but most media ran with it, given that it covered many of the same points Francis and his advisers have been making in the run-up to the release.
On Tuesday, the Vatican indefinitely suspended the press credentials of L'Espresso's veteran Vatican correspondent, Sandro Magister, saying the publication had been "incorrect." A letter from the Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, to Magister advising him of the sanction was posted on the bulletin board of the Vatican press office.
Several Vatican commentators hypothesized that the leak was aimed at taking the punch out of Thursday's official launch of the encyclical, in which the Vatican has lined up a Catholic cardinal, an Orthodox theologian, an atheist scientist and an economist to discuss the contents.
The pilots filed into the room and were presented with a form that asked if they wanted to be kamikaze. It was multiple-choice, and there were three answers: "I passionately wish to join," ''I wish to join," and "I don't wish to join."
Hisashi Tezuka recalls that a few of his colleagues quickly wrote their replies and strutted away. But he and most of the others stayed for what felt like hours, unable to decide.
He did not know then if anyone had dared to refuse. He learned later that the few who did were simply told to pick the right answer.
They were the kamikaze, "the divine wind," ordered to fly their planes into certain death. The U.S. Strategic Bombing Survey and data kept at the library at Yasukuni shrine in Tokyo estimate that about 2,500 of them died during the war. Some history books give higher numbers. About one in every five kamikaze planes managed to hit an enemy target.
Books and movies have depicted them as crazed suicide bombers who screamed "Banzai" as they met their end. But interviews with survivors and families by The Associated Press, as well as letters and documents, offer a different portrait - of men driven by patriotism, self-sacrifice and necessity. The world they lived in was like that multiple-choice form: It contained no real options.

London's Natural History Museum is trialling a quirky system using female moth pheromones to confuse males into homosexual activity in its battle to stop the damaging cloth-eating insects from breeding.
British agricultural technology company Exosect impregnates wax tablets with minute levels of the pheromones, which rub off on amorous male moths, who in turn go on to attract other males.
"The powder overwhelms their senses and they aren't able to detect regular females anymore," Exosect spokeswoman Georgina Donovan told AFP on Wednesday.
"If an untreated male comes into contact with a treated male, he will start to show mating behaviours, such as wing fanning," she said.
The company says tricking the moths into trying to mate with other males is a more effective and environmentally friendly way of tackling the menace than traditional pesticides such as those contained in mothballs.
