William Ellsworth “Dummy" Hoy: Baseball's Greatest Deaf Player

Neatorama presents a guest post from actor, comedian, and voiceover artist Eddie Deezen. Visit Eddie at his website or at Facebook.

Around the turn of the 20th century, in much less PC times, there was an excellent baseball player named William Ellsworth Hoy. Because of the social agreements of the times back then, William was nicknamed “Dummy.” Why? Dummy Hoy was a deaf mute.

In those less enlightened times, many deaf mutes were nicknamed Dummy. And, for the record, William Hoy never minded his nickname, instead embracing it. If anyone ever called him “William,” he would always correct them, asking that they call him “Dummy" instead.

William Ellsworth Hoy was born in Houcktown, Ohio, in 1862. At the age of three, he went deaf from meningitis. He graduated from the Ohio State School for the Deaf and was the class valedictorian.

Hoy opened a shoe repair shop in his hometown and started playing baseball on the weekends. His natural talent was spotted almost immediately and in 1888, Dummy broke into the big leagues with the Washington Nationals. He was to play 14 seasons in the major leagues, playing with several different teams in Washington, Cincinnati, Buffalo, St. Louis, Louisville and Chicago.

Dummy Hoy was a superior baseball player, with a .288 lifetime batting average, while stealing 596 bases (some sources credit him with over 600 stolen bases). Besides being a very good hitter, with over 2,000 hits, Dummy was a superb center fielder. At the time of his retirement in 1902, he had set and held several fielding records for outfielders.

The new documentary 
​based on the life of Saturday Night Live great and comedian Chris Farley begins showing this Friday. Entitled I Am Chris Farley, ​the film is directed by Brent Hodge and consists of interviews with many of Farley's SNL and movie costars as well as his family members. Farley's entire life is covered, from his childhood in Madison, Wisconsin until his death by drug overdose at age 33 in 1997.

The movie is guaranteed to be bittersweet, much like the impression this kind, larger-than-life character left in the minds of his friends and costars. As featured in Esquire, here are ten facts about Farley that are presented in the film. 

 "8. He was surprisingly charitable.

The comedian gave back to his community. Farley was a "true Catholic" and spent a lot of time volunteering at children's hospitals. He believed that any homeless man had the possibility to be Jesus so it was best to help everyone. 'That part of him I don't think people knew,' Lorne Michaels says."

The Most WTF Inducing Bosses In Video Games

Bosses are generally the most iconic characters in a video game, and whether players succeed in taking them down, or lose a life trying, they’re not likely to forget those foul faces anytime soon.

Games that feature prominent boss battles can sometimes feature the most bizarre character designs for these big baddies, which games like Batman:Arkham Asylum, Final Fantasy X and Silent Hill 2 use to bring the story to a dark and wondrous place.

Abby Roeser demonstrates the cool tricks she’s trained her rats Blue, Puffin and Pepper to perform. The rats, who are happy to do the tricks in exchange for rewards like dog treats and dinner leftovers such as peas, are trained using a clicker. Very impressive! Now, hopefully I can remember how smart and cute that rats can be when one steps into the light in front of me as I'm walking around New York or some other large city at night! Via Laughing Squid

(Photo: Guinness World Records)

Hennig-Olsen, an ice cream company in Norway, earned a Guinness World Record by building the largest ice cream cone in the world.

That’s so much that the company had to airlift the ingredients from its factory to Kristiansand in southern Norway for the event.

Pippi Longstocking Is Back, And This Time She's Dishing Out Crimson Justice

Pippi Longstocking is a redheaded powerhouse in pigtails, and although she looks a bit like the Wendy’s girl her superhuman strength and self sufficiency prove she's not your average nine-year-old.

And yet she has been left by the wayside in the world of pop culture, deemed outdated and unworthy of a reboot in an age when they’re making movies about everything from board games to sharknadoes.

(YouTube Link)

Thankfully Clint Howard and Funny Or Die heard our pleas for a newfangled Pippi reboot, and he wants to bring Milla Jovovich on board to play a grown up Pippi in Pippi Longstocking: Crimson Justice. Sounds like a worthy reboot to me!

Burger Chain Replaces Its Buns with 2 Halves of a Giant Tomato

(Photo: Mos Burger)

Mos Burger, a Japanese fast food chain, is now offering this healthy if unusual hamburger alternative. Instead of a bun, you get your patty and condiments sandwiched between the halves of a huge tomato. They’re available at only one outlet in Tokyo and only after 2 PM. The staff of Rocket News 24 visited to test it. Oona McGee reports that the meal, which comes with a cup of salad instead of fries, is tasty and uses quality tomatoes.

What other fruits or vegetables do you think should be used this way?

An Honest Trailer for the Mission: Impossible Movies

Screen Junkies takes on all four Mission: Impossible movies at once. Considering how alike they all are, this isn’t the most difficult assignment -and they chose to accept it.

The impression I get from this is that all the movies exist mainly to see Tom Cruise in stunts that should kill any mortal human. Otherwise, it’s Scooby-Doo all over again. -via Tastefully Offensive

CURSES! - Super Simian 'Splosion


CURSES! by BeastPop

100 Beautiful Words From the English Language That We Should Use More

Trinity College Library | Image: Nic McPhee

Words go in and out of fashion, and as they do, sometimes we lose perfectly good ones in our daily barrage of media presentations. Unless one is an avid reader, they may never have seen words that are perfectly apt and have the benefit of having a melodic sound that flows well into other commonly used English words. 

This list of one hundred beautiful English words has some arguably attractive selections that would be great interspersed with our own vocabulary standards, if they aren't already in rotation. The more the merrier, correct? See what words populate the list and share your favorites, if you'd like. My favorites listed here are "bucolic" and "halcyon."

Videos Revealing Every Change Made To The Original Star Wars Trilogy

George Lucas caught a lot of flak from fans when he decided to add a bunch of CGI scenes to the original Star Wars trilogy.

He caught even more heat when he decided to do away with the original versions in favor of his updated editions, leaving future generations thinking Jabba looks like this:

Unless you’ve scrutinized all three versions of the original trilogy you probably didn’t catch all the changes Lucas introduced into each film, because there are so many it's hard to keep track of them all.

Film fan Marcelo Zuniga has created a set of exhaustive side-by-side comparison videos showing all the changes made to the original trilogy, including the updated Hutt horror.

The 11 Cultures of America

Colin Woodard’s new book American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures in North America divides North America into districts that have no bearing on state borders, but are identified as unique cultures. Who knew that you could draw a map that puts John Farrier and me into the same category?  

Woodard says that among these 11 nations, Yankeedom and the Deep South exert the most influence and are constantly competing with each other for the hearts and minds of the other nations.

"We are trapped in brinkmanship because there is not a lot of wiggle room between Yankee and Southern Culture," Woodard says. "Those two nations would never see eye to eye on anything besides an external threat."

Woodward also says the regions are becoming more polarized, because humans are mobile and “self-sorting.” That’s not universal. I am still in Kentucky because of relatives and the property I own, not the politics. Read a short history and description of each of these cultures at Business Insider. -via mental_floss

Scare Your Kids Into Learning The ABCs With David Lynch's The Alphabet

Sometimes it’s hard to teach kids their ABCs and make the lesson stick, since they have a hard time remembering all 26 letters of the alphabet much less the rest of that cute little song.

Kids need something to help them visualize each letter, imprinting it in their minds for life, and what better way to leave a permanent mark than with a bit of terror?

(Vimeo Link)

David Lynch created the perfect video tool for teaching your kids the ABCs back in 1968, the appropriately entitled experimental film The Alphabet.

Blending surreal animation with nightmarish visuals and a “catchy soundtrack” that features the sound of David Lynch’s daughter crying, The Alphabet is a visualization of a time when Lynch's wife's niece "was having a bad dream one night and was saying the alphabet in her sleep in a tormented way."

Looks like she was learning her ABCs the Lynch way- through her nightmares!

Taco Belle

Master costumer Olivia Mears once made a dress out of Taco Bell taco wrappers and, on another occasion, ordered a meal at Taco Bell while cosplaying as the Disney princess Belle from Beauty and the Beast. Now, carrying that theme forward to its spicy conclusion is her Belle dress that makes it look like the mad scientists at Taco Bell have finally gone too far. Her Taco Belle dress is a wonder of satin and dry lettuce.

Bonus item: you can see Mears appear costumed in a Taco Bell commercial here.

Herman Harband’s Headstone

Herman Harband commissioned his own headstone ahead of time to be placed on his grave when he died. It was ready for him at Beth David Memorial Gardens in Hollywood, Florida. The inscription reads:

My wife Eleanor Arthur of Queens, NY lived like a princess for 20 years traveling the world with the best of everything. When I went blind, she tried to poison me, took all my money, all my medication and left me in the dark alone and sick. It's a miracle I escaped. I won't see her in heaven because she's surely going to hell!

However, Harband remarried. When he died in 2011, his second wife Domnita had him buried in a couple’s plot in Raleigh, North Carolina, with a different stone. See his actual grave. According to Find a Grave:

Herman Harband was not buried at Beth David Memorial Gardens, but he did own a headstone at the cemetery, thus making it a cenotaph, not a grave. The internet-famous headstone is real (confirmed by records and the cemetery director), but it was removed in early 2014 and the plot was sold back to the cemetery at the request of his wife. According to the cemetery directory, the headstone (as of this writing) is in storage at the cemetery.

The Fish-Propelled Boat and Other Wacky Ideas from the Man Behind Tupperware

Earl S. Tupper gave us Tupperware and thus an extended life on that casserole you don't want to eat. But he did a lot more than just give us a way to forget leftovers in the back of the refrigerator for 6 months. He had lots of ideas. Scholars can find his sketches in the archives of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. For example, he developed an ice cream cone design with a gutter to prevent leakage. And he put a lot of thought into how women’s corsets should be designed.

But most importantly, Earl S. Tupper came up with a revolutionary form of naval propulsion. The fish-powered boat had a pair of wings that did not greatly slow down the boat, but prevented the fish from diving and escaping—or diving and taking the boat with it. We we don't use these today is beyond me.

You can see more of Tupper’s sketches at Hourzz.

Sunglasses That Give The Wearer LSD Style Visuals Without The Drugs

It is not advisable to take LSD, as it can have negative effects on the body and the mind, but how are we supposed to get those awesome visuals without taking the drug?

Hungarian designer Bence Agoston has come up with a fun way to induce hallucination-esque effects while stone sober- MOOD, sunglasses for music.

Slip on a pair of these psychedelic specs and the world becomes a trippier place thanks to MOOD's interchangeable lenses, which can be layered and rotated to make every viewing experience unique.

Bence comments on MOOD:

“Because each color filters the incoming lights differently, and the patterns can overlap each other or leave blank fields, the new view is completely random and twisted.” Agoston also has versatility in mind, just in case you need a break from your simulated LSD journey: “Mood can also be used with clear lenses, for everyday living.”

Agoston goes on to describe the suggested use of such “hallucinogenic” sunglasses. “The ideal situation for use is during travel, when people listen to music, just looking out the window and watching the ever-changing sights, in perfect harmony with the music.

Interesting Facts About Pop-Culture Pets

Who was the first character cast in the Harry Potter movies? If you guessed Hedwig, you're right. And that's not the only fun fact about magical and otherwise imaginary creatures from this great TopTenz list

Here's another great trivia tidbit -adorable little Gizmo from the Gremlins was originally supposed to become the antagonist, but Steven Speilberg decided (rightly) that fans would prefer to see the adorable little creature as much as possible in the movie and wouldn't want to root against him. Just imagine what a different movie it would be if little Gizmo was the enemy.

Ten Of The Most Inappropriate Rock Songs That Became Huge Hits

It’s easy to sing along to your favorite songs, never really paying much mind to what the lyrics are actually saying.

But if you listen a little closer you’ll find that many of your fav rock & roll hits are chock full of raunchy and wrong.

(YouTube Link)

My Sharona sounds innocent enough, but when you discover that The Knack’s Doug Fieger wrote the song for sixteen-year-old Sharona Alperin when Doug was around 25 years old it kinda sheds a different light on the lyrics.

"When you gonna give me some time, Sharona?" How about when I've graduated from high school, you adult pervert.

(YouTube Link)

But My Sharona is part of a rock tradition of singing about young gals, and songs like Ted Nugent’s Jailbait, KISS’s Christine Sixteen, and Stray Cat Blues by the Rolling Stones all feature lyrics about underage girls. It's enough to make you wonder- can't rock stars find good women their own age?

How Much of a Brain Do We Really Need?

Peter Watts recalls a study in which an adult had a brain scan and was found to have almost no brain at all. The skull was filled with cerebrospinal fluid except for a thin layer of brain tissue around the edges. This person had an undiagnosed case of hydrocephalus that left him with a cavernous hole in the middle of his head. Yet he had an IQ of 126 and a math degree.

It happens occasionally. Someone grows up to become a construction worker or a schoolteacher, before learning that they should have been a rutabaga instead. Lewin’s paper reports that one out of ten hydrocephalus cases are so extreme that cerebrospinal fluid fills 95% of the cranium. Anyone whose brain fits into the remaining 5% should be nothing short of vegetative; yet apparently, fully half have IQs over 100. (Why, here’s another example from 2007; and yet another. Let’s call them VBNs, or “Virtual No-Brainers”)

What makes the difference between those who are fully functional and those who aren’t? Watts gives us a few ways the brain might work around such damage, some which have been debunked, and some that have never been adequately studied. What is unsettling is the thought of how many people never need a brain scan and go their entire lives not knowing they have none. Do you know for sure that you have a brain? -via Metafilter

Animals Who Want To Be Photographers

(Image Link)

Animals are getting used to being in front of the camera, which means they’re starting to do research into taking their own selfies.

But until we humans invent cameras made for critters to control they’re going to have to share our equipment.

(Image Link)

Maybe a photographic partnership with animalkind would be a good thing for both parties, since they’ll be able to get their furry friends to come out and pose for us and we can teach them how to use the equipment.

But animals can be really pushy sometimes, so don’t be surprised if your photo partner tries to push you out of the way and do all the shooting themselves!

Nano-Pasta: Thin Film Realization of Ultra-Fast Cooking Pasta Using Glancing Angle Deposition

The following is an article from The Annals of Improbable Research.

by W. M. J. GreCJI, K. L. Westra, K. Robbie, and M. J. Brett
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering,  University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta

With the ever-increasing demands of urban life, individuals are ever less able to find time for their fundamental daily tasks. One of the most time consuming activities undertaken during an average day is the preparation of meals: breakfast, lunch, and supper. Our society has increasingly demanded for meals that are quick to prepare, yet nutritious. As a result, we now have dishes such as instant rice, microwave dinners, and minute noodles and soups.

In this article, we present a novel addition to the "fast food" lineup. Dubbed "Nanopasta" for its small size and phenomenally rapid cooking time, this new variety of pasta can be produced with the aid of a thin film deposition technology known as glancing angle deposition1 (GLAD).

Nanopasta
Nanopasta is made by evaporating Durum wheat in a vacuum. The vapor is then directed at glancing incidence toward a rotating substrate. The schematic in Figure 1 illustrates this process, which is also currently used for other materials.2 Once Nanopasta has been deposited on the substrate, it may be harvested by a special etching process. Figure 2a shows a scanning electron microscope image of one shape, called Nano-fusilli. The photo illustrates the nanometer size scale of Nanopasta. Figure 2b shows an image of a Nano-fusilli film immediately after deposition but before the etch harvesting process. The substrate shown in the image is a silicon wafer.

Theoretical Background-AI Dente's Ratio
Theory indicates that the most efficient way to cook dry pasta is to immerse it water that is at the boiling point. Depending on the variety and shape of pasta being prepared, the cooking process may require a relatively short or long period of time.

This Table Shrinks and Grows Like an Accordion

Ian Stell’s Sinan table is a precisely designed and built piece of kinetic furniture that opens and folds. He explains that “Mutability in a piece of furniture should serve a purpose, but the act of transformation should be a kind of dance.” The Sinan does indeed dance!

Stell doesn’t list a price for the Sinan, but a somewhat similar design of his sells for a mere $20,000. For that much, the table should make accordion sound effects whenever it moves.

Cat Not Impressed by Baby Goats

Moo is a barn cat at Sunflower Farm Creamery. She’s a dedicated barn cat, keeping watch out for vermin and even sits and supervises goats when they give birth. When week-old kids Lady Bug and Princess Leia try to make friends, Moo makes it clear she just wants a little nap. While Moo has seen lots of goats come and go, everything is new to the bouncy goats.

(YouTube link)

What impressed me in this video is the relative size of the goats and the cat. Those are tiny little kids! Well, Moo is a pretty healthy size for a barn cat. After all, she lives in a creamery, and apparently gets her share of goat’s milk. -via HuffPo

The 30 Most Important Sex Scenes in Movie History

Julianne Moore and Mark Wahlberg in Boogie Nights | Image: New Line Cinema

In Vulture's list of the 30 most important sex scenes in the history of film, the word "important" has various meanings, which the writer clearly states. To quote him, he means important in the following ways: 

  • "Used in the development of the cinematic idiom"
  • "Sparking controversy"
  • Breaking new ground in the depiction of intimacy
  • "Seminal moments in film history (for better and for worse)"
  •  "Flash points that wound up changing our culture in interesting ways"
  • "Represented nefarious, exploitative trends"
  •  "And some are just unforgettable scenes that informed what came after them"

With those descriptions in mind, let's take a look at this writer's pick for the most important sex scenes in movie history. (Some screen shots used are NSFW-ish.)
