How the BBC makes Planet Earth look like a Hollywood movie

If you've been watching the BBC TV series Planet Earth II, you've no doubt been amazed at the wildlife footage. It almost looks like a Hollywood action film -a blockbuster, even. A lot of that is due to new filmmaking technology.

(YouTube link)

The BBC has been making nature documentaries for 60 years, and they have steadily gotten better as the cameras and equipment get better. This video from Vox gives the short history of that technology and how it can be used to film fascinating creatures that don't follow a script. This is "part 1 of 3," so we can look forward to more behind-the-scenes looks at how Planet Earth was made. -via Tastefully Offensive

What's The Difference Between A Coffin And A Casket?

People use the words coffin and casket interchangeably when talking about funeral arrangements, but morticians know there's more than just a price difference between the two-the difference is in the shape and function.

Coffins are the octagonal burial containers made wider at the shoulder and tapered at the feet to fit the body, and they're used pretty much exclusively for burial.

But by the mid-19th century undertakers had become funeral directors, and they needed something more luxurious and showy than a coffin for viewing purposes- so the casket was created.

(Image Link)

Caskets are lined and typically rectangular shaped burial containers with hinged lids and decorative elements, and nowadays caskets are often custom made to suit the deceased to a T.

Pearl The Goat Is In Love With The UPS Man

Goats are interesting critters with fascinating minds and bold personalities, and that's why they're popular pets both on and off the ranch.

Sadly, some goats are treated poorly by humans, but if they're as lucky as Pearl the goat they end up in a rescue center like the Gentle Barn in Tennessee, where they can meet new, and much nicer, human friends.

And even though Pearl was abused by her former owner she still has lots of love to give to her favorite human friend- the UPS man.

Horrible Stories of Children in Restaurants

I'm far from the person who believes no one should take children to a restaurant as I've seen plenty of well behaved kids eating out, but we've all seen those monster children at restaurants whose parents completely ignore them. But the worst kid you've ever seen while dining out probably doesn't compare at all to the terrible youngsters in this Thrillist article. While all the stories are pretty good, the last one really emphasizes how terrible some parents are while dining out with their offspring: 

"I was way too busy to take time away from my other tables to escort this girl to the bathroom and I also did not really feel comfortable taking a young child and 'helping her' in the bathroom. I mean, what if this involved wiping and such? I let her know that I was sorry, but I needed to start bringing the food out for the table and did not have time to help her daughter. I should add that, at least to appearances, there was no obvious physical disability that would have prevented this lady from taking her own daughter to the bathroom. Not to mention, there are 13 other people at the table -- who know this child to some extent -- who could also have helped if needed.

And that's just the beginning of the awfulness. You can read the rest of the story -and all the others at Thrillist.

Guy Will Eat a Picture of Jason Segel Every Day Until Segel Eats a Picture of HIm

There are a lot of weird people out there on the internet, but every now and then you find a new type of weirdness you may never have encountered before. Today is one of those days.

(Video Link)

That's because this brave stupid genius utterly insane man has promised to eat a picture of Jason Segel every day until Jason Segel eats a picture of him in return. He's hashtagged his campaign #EatMyFaceSegel.

(Video Link)

Some people think he's just trying to become internet famous, but he certainly seems to be legitimately obsessed with the actor, even getting a tattoo of his name yesterday, which was the fourth day of his project so far.

Famous Pop Culture Characters Get Simpsonized

Belgian illustrator Adrien Noterdaem (ADN) takes pop culture characters from TV and movies and converts them into the cartoon style of the TV series The Simpsons. No fictional world is off limits.

Why Cartoon Characters Wear Gloves

When cartoons were wholly crafted by hand animators used all kinds of tricks to speed up the process, and one of their tricks made a character's hands more visible, emotive and easier to animate-they put gloves on 'em.

This small change made a world of difference for early animators who were discovering rounder was better in a character design, and simplification saved precious time during production.

(YouTube Link)

This toon-tastic video by Vox shows how gloves became an iconic part of a cartoon's character design, and how Mickey's gloves started it all.

In Loco Presidentis: Who's In Charge Here?

This Presidents Day article is from the book Uncle John's Bathroom Reader Plunges Into the Presidency.

You probably wouldn’t let the unconscious, anesthetized,  or generally incapacitated mind the store, but  would you let them mind the country?

It seems like a necessary and not terribly difficult thing to do—make sure someone is always running the country. But it took U.S. lawmakers nearly 200 years to get most of the kinks out of the presidential succession process. Not until the 25th Amendment to the Constitution was passed in 1967 was the procedure for replacing an incapacitated president clarified. So what happened before that? Well, the government sort of made things up as it went along.

THAT DEPENDS ON WHAT THE MEANING OF "PRESIDENT" IS

The first real test of the succession process came when William Henry Harrison died after only a month in office. After delivering his inauguration speech in cold, windy weather without an over-coat, Harrison caught a cold that quickly turned into pneumonia. Within a month he was dead.

The Constitution said that given the president's death, his powers and duties should go to the vice president, who at that time was John Tyler. But not everyone was sure that Tyler actually became president. While he might have the president’s powers and duties, was it really the same thing as being president? Wasn’t he only acting, so to speak? Tyler didn’t think so. He quickly had himself sworn in as president and even gave an inauguration speech at the ceremony.

Ten Of The Oldest Cities In The World

Every time I travel through California I'm reminded of how young the cities in my state are compared to cities like Boston and NYC, let alone when compared to ancient cities like Athens, Greece.

But even though cities like Los Angeles and San Diego are only a couple of hundred years old there's a city about 2000 miles south of California that has been around for over 2500 years- Cholula, Mexico.

Cholula was home to the Olmecs, Toltecs and Aztecs, and when the town was conquered by Hernán Cortés and his Conquistadors he called it "the most beautiful city outside Spain".

The small colonial town of 60,000 is best known for Tlachihualtepetl, the Great Pyramid of Cholula, which is the largest pyramid in the world and the largest archaeological pyramid site in the New World.

Cholula has definitely seen some epic battles in its day, but those battles cannot compare to the wars fought in and around Plovdiv, Bulgaria.

Plovdiv dates back to at least 4000 BCE, and as one of the oldest cities in Europe it has seen its fair share of invaders, conflict and resurrection, traces of which can be seen in the city's 39-foot thick cultural layers.

The Romans, Greeks, Persians, Celts, Goths, Huns, Slavs, Turks and Ottomans have all invaded and/or conquered Plovdiv throughout its storied history, each one contributing to the city's history like a patch on a quilt.

Plants You Should Always Grow Together In The Garden

Too much sun, too little water, bugs, poor quality soil and a lack of fertilization are some of the main reasons why fruits and veggies fail to grow in the garden, but did you know what we grow together matters too?

It turns out plant pairing can be just as important as where, when and how you grow, so start planting the right stuff side-by-side and reap the rewards!

Sweet smelling roses attract pests, so grow some pungent garlic next to your roses and repel those pests with the delicious power of nature.

Nematodes (roundworms) attack melons at the root, but growing marigolds next to your melons can be as effective as chemical treatments at controlling those pests- and they look pretty too!

Everybody loves to grow fresh tomatoes in the garden, but did you know tomatoes can be a cabbage's best friend?

Diamondback moth larvae love to munch on cabbage leaves but tomato plants are repellant to the larvae, so grow tomatoes and cabbage together to keep your leaves from getting all chewed up.

Executive Order 9066

Today is the 75th anniversary of Executive Order 9066, issued on February 19, 1942, which allowed the U.S. government to inter Japanese-Americans, German-Americans and Italian-Americans in camps for the duration of the war. Around 120,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry were removed from their West Coast homes and taken to internment camps.

(YouTube link)

The above government newsreel was made in 1943. At the National Archives' Unwritten Record Blog, you can read about the internment project and see an 18-minute 1944 color documentary.  

At The New Yorker, you can see Bill Manbo's rare color photographs of his internment camp.

At NPR's Code Switch, you can see photographs of the internment from three different photographers which very different agendas: Dorothea Lange, who wanted to convey the unfairness of the order; Ansel Adams, who depicted the internees as patriotic and cooperative volunteers; and Toyo Miyatake, who was himself an internee. -via Metafilter

A New Novel Reveals The Fate Of Jar Jar Binks After Revenge Of The Sith

Ever since he made his last big screen appearance in Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith Jar Jar Binks has been the butt of many jokes, and a few fan theories even speculate the Gungan may be a Sith Lord in disguise.

Mashable received an advanced copy of Chuck Wendig's new novel Star Wars Aftermath: Empire's End and found out that fan theory hit the Meesa right on the Binks- because Jar Jar was working for the Empire after all.

(Image Link)

In Empire's End a young refugee runs into Jar Jar, who is now a street performer, and the Gungan opens up to the kid about his dark past:

"Jar Jar makin some uh-oh mistakens," the Gungan says, explaining why he isn't wanted anywhere either. "Desa hisen Naboo tink I help the uh-oh Empire." He stares into the distance, suggesting he knows more than he's saying.

I knew that little bastard stank worse than Dagobah!

Forgotten Fortune Found in Recycled TV

An unnamed man in Bolsover, Ontario, received an inheritance back in the 1980s. He hid $100,000 of it, in $50 bills, inside a television set. Then he forgot where he put it. Some time over the next 30 years, he gave the TV set to a friend, who used it until about a year ago, when it was sent to Global Electric Electronic Processing (GEEP) in Barrie, Ontario, for recycling. There the TV sat until last month, when it was taken apart. Employees were surprised to find a box full of cash.

Barrie police reunited a 68-year-old man from Bolsover, Ont., a village of about 400 people in the Kawartha Lakes region, with the cash, using banking records from 1985 to trace the owner. Police did not release his name because of privacy concerns.

“This is a unique situation where this large quantity of money was missing without anyone knowing it was missing,” Const. Nicole Rodgers said. “He hadn’t even realized with the police officers sitting in his house that they were speaking of the cash box with his money in it.

“In his mind, he thought it was still somewhere else in his house.”

There must be a safer place to keep one's savings, like maybe a mattress. Read more on the story at the Calgary Herald. -via Dave Barry

Accidental Inbound Missile Warning

(Image source: imgur)

You've been told for years to stop and think twice before hitting "send." That goes double and triple if you are testing graphics to be used only in an emergency. An incident Tuesday most likely caused a few hearts to skip a beat among U.S. Air Force personnel.  

The message read “MISSILE INBOUND. SEEK SHELTER IMMEDIATELY!” as it took over the screens of Air Force personnel working at the 52nd Fighter Wing at Spangdahlem Air Base in Germany, earlier this week.

It was accidentally sent out to all terminals through the bases AtHoc emergency alert system that is typically used for weather updates. Spokesman Maj. Bryon McGarry told Stars and Stripes, “One of the command post controllers was building a template for this specific thing that was posted.” The message was intended to only go to one person but he “inadvertently sent it to everybody.” Eight minutes after the message announcing impending doom popped up, a soothing blue screen went out across the base’s terminals telling everyone to chill out.

But the original image was saved and shared. Someone added an embarrassed face to the original message and posted it to Air Force amn/nco/snco at Facebook. Read the entire story at Gizmodo.

An Animated History Of Russia

Russia is constantly in the news these days, and people can't seem to agree on whether Putin's trying to bring back the Iron Curtain or whether he's coming around to the idea of being a part of the global community.

This mistrust is partly due to the fact that schools didn't teach us about Russian history, in order to keep the Cold War extra icy, so maybe if we learn about Russian history we'll understand them better.

But who wants to read those long, boring history books? You're better off watching The Animated History of Russia by James Suibhne so you can learn it all in a nutshell before you dive into those dusty tomes!

The Difficult Journey of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

When Star Trek went to the big screen in 1979, audiences were excited, but Star Trek: The Motion Picture was too long and slowly-paced to stand the test of time. It was also extremely expensive, causing Paramount to rethink making a sequel. So changes were made: Gene Roddenberry was fired, a budget-conscious director was brought in, and the script for The Wrath of Khan was written by a writer who'd never seen a Star Trek episode. The production staff not only learned from the mistakes of the first movie, but used the existing sets and unused footage to save money. The changes had repercussions beyond Star Trek.

The cumbersome large model on wires approach was shelved for Star Trek’s motion control, and new models were built with usability and cost in mind, rather than screen presence. The only thing not cut back on was the aforementioned CGI. The large terraforming sequence could only be done in animation, and much like the sequence in the finished film it was presented as an advert for the skills of Lucasfilm Computer Imaging. And like in the film, the CGI video succeeded in its marketing purpose. The clip impressed a young Steve Jobs enough to part with $5 million to buy out the division, which renamed itself Pixar.

But what really made the The Wrath of Khan a hit was a plot that focused on the original cast and a villain that harked back to the TV series (to be fair, V'ger did, too, but not as charismatically as Khan). Read about the process of bringing The Wrath of Khan to theaters at Den of Geek.

Vintage, Colorized Photos of the Greatest Show on Earth

Come this May, Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus will be folding up their tents for good, closing after 146 years on the road. Now you can enjoy the colorful history of the Greatest Show on Earth thanks to the Illinois State University's Milner Library. 

The school has spent ample time and money to preserve the history of the circus through digitizing thousands of posters, photographs, circus route books and Kodachrome slides.

While the glory days of the circus may have ended, it's legacy will live on for years to come. 

You can see the pictures for yourself on the Milner Library website, where you can casually browse or search for specific images based on location, performer, circus and more.

Monsters Ink Mike - Eyeball Tattoos Cost Extra


Monsters Ink Mike by Scott Neilson

When Mike and Sully imagined a career in scaring they didn't think about longevity or a future where kids became desensitized to monsters, so five years in to the gig they found themselves laid off. Sully quickly found a job as a bouncer, which ended up being the perfect gig for him, but poor Mike was left wondering what to do with his life. One day he was sitting at the bar doodling on a cocktail napkin when a biker beastman came up to him and asked him if he'd ever done any tattoos, since he was about to open a tattoo shop in Monstropolis. Mike's great big eye got teary, and he gave the beastman a hug even though he smelled like a dirty goat, and Mike once again had his future laid out for him by a happy accident.

Add some sick tat style to your geeky wardrobe with this Monsters Ink Mike t-shirt by Scott Neilson, it's an all new way to show love for your favorite one-eyed monster pal Mike Wazowski!

Investing in the Future

I used an app that did this a long time ago at a previous job. We were encouraged to explore the internet at first, but over time, we ended up restricted to only looking up the weather forecast, so a loading screen was quite useful when the boss walked in while I was checking email or playing solitaire. Jeff Lofvers of Don't Hit Save has a more dedicated reason for using his: to hide the fact that he's been at home playing video games all day instead of producing something useful.

6 Horrifying Realities Of Living In A Sitcom Universe

You could spend a lifetime watching TV sitcoms and not realize that the same weird things keep happening from show to show over time. Maybe that's because we don't watch that many sitcoms at a time, or we don't compare our favorites from the 1970s to our favorites from the '10s. Did you ever notice how new infants in a sitcom family suddenly become old enough to deliver lines (or at least look cute) the next season? In Full House, Uncle Jesse's twins grew quickly, while their cousin Michelle did not.

Modern Family provides more evidence of a vast baby-swapping conspiracy when Cam and Mitchell celebrate their daughter's second birthday ... only to mention that she's three a few months later. Clearly, they're speeding up the rate of her birthdays so as to avoid arousing suspicions when they inevitably switch her (which they did).

On the other hand, the baby swaps in Growing Pains and Family Ties are so laughably obvious that they seem to imply this business isn't even underground. Chrissy Seaver blossoms from basically a newborn child to a 5-year-old girl in the space of one season ...

That's just one weird thing about sitcoms that happens over and over. You might notice one thing when it happens in your favorite show, but you probably never realized that it's a TV thing in show after show, over decades. Read the rest of the list of weirdness in TV sitcoms at Cracked.

Playin' with Bruce Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen played in Brisbane Thursday night. A teenager held up a sign that said he was missing school for the concert, and could he play "Growin' Up"? Springsteen called him up on stage to play. Fifteen-year-old Nathan Testa knew the song, and well. In the middle of the song, Springsteen gives him some advice about looking good on stage.  

(YouTube link)

What's really strange is that this isn't the first time Testa has played with the Boss. His family are all avid Springsteen fans, and attended a Brisbane concert in 2013, when Testa, then 11, was pulled on stage to play "Waitin' on a Sunny Day." -via Metafilter

Woman Takes Selfie In 11 Different Dressing Rooms, Looks Remarkably Different In Each Shot

Have you ever tried clothes on in a dressing room and thought to yourself "this doesn't look right at all, and that person in the mirror doesn't even look like me!", only to leave the store empty handed?

Fitting rooms should have flattering light and pleasing colors that make the clothes look good, but Russian blogger Inna visited dressing rooms in 11 different stores and found they often fail to flatter.

Inna visited clothing stores such as H&M, Mango and Zara and compared her before shot, taken with home lighting, to the shots taken in each room.

And even though she was wearing the same clothes, and shot the pics with the same phone, the lighting and background changed her look up quite a bit from shot to shot.

So what did Inna conclude based on her research? Brighter lights are more flattering, and red used right will really make you stand out, but a dark dressing room can ruin an otherwise good shopping trip.
