LSD: Line, Square, Dot

LSD is a very minimalist physics game. There’s a box. You can draw lines. And a dot falls. Your goal is to get the dot in the box. Simple, huh? All you have to do is draw lines in the right place to bounce the ball into the box. It’s doable, but maddening at times. Inertia is not your friend here- if you get your lines placed just right, that ball will bounce forever. As soon as you think you’re pretty good at it, you’ll be put in your place. -via Metafilter

The "Scorpion Queen" of Thailand Covers Herself in Scorpions to Amuse Tourists

But that's just for now. If you have the title "Scorpion Queen," then you're morally obligated to become a vicious tyrant.

At the moment, our queen parades in front of visitors to the Tiger Zoo in Pattaya, Thailand. She amazes them by wearing live scorpions on her dress and playing with them as though they were loyal henchmen who will obey her psychic commands. This is a demonstration of her power. She has no fear of something that terrifies everyone else. It is Step 1 to building a base of supporters.

Murphy’s Take on Moore’s Law

Instead of Moore’s law, the latest comic from CommitStrip appears to be an example of Wirth’s law, named for Niklaus Wirth, who recognized the phenomena back in 1995. It tells us that as hardware becomes faster, software even more rapidly becomes slower.

I’m no technical genius, but even I can tell that what we use computers for becomes more complicated all the time, which means we will never have the speed we want. Twenty years ago, I couldn’t load a video. Ten years ago, I had to buy a new computer just to start a blog. Now we stream full-length movies and live events. What's next? And how much frustrating will it be?

8 Photos of Frying Pans and 1 of a Moon of Jupiter

NASA recently released this composite image of 9 round objects. 8 of them are the bottoms of frying pans. 1 of them is Europa, a moon of Jupiter. It was taken by NASA's New Horizons space probe in 2007.

Can you guess which is Europa? Attempt no landing there, but make a guess. Then check it against the answer in the Daily Telegraph.

Did you guess correctly?

Forget Microbrews--Have a Nanobrew!


(Video Link)

"Microbrewers can focus on making each bottle taste good. But we can focus on making each sip taste great." The comedy troupe Above Average takes the microbrewing craze to the next level by imagining a brewery that scales down its product to less than a thimble-full per bottle. You will never, ever feel the effects of alcohol, but you will experience microbrew prices.

10 Fascinating Facts About Blade Runner

Harrison Ford stars in a Ridley Scott film based on a novel by Philip K. Dick. You can’t beat a pedigree like that. The 1982 film Blade Runner couldn’t help but become a classic of the sci-fi genre. Surely you’ll want to know some of the important facts behind the movie. For example: 

4. RIDLEY SCOTT DIDN’T READ THE BOOK ON WHICH IT’S BASED.

Blade Runner is (loosely) based on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by legendary sci-fi author Philip K. Dick. (It’s one of over a dozen movies based on his works.) But Scott didn’t read the book before making the movie: “I actually couldn’t get into it. I met Philip K. Dick later, and he said, ‘I understand you couldn’t read the book.’ And I said, ‘You know you’re so dense, mate, by page 32, there’s about 17 storylines.’”

5. PHILIP K. DICK HATED THE SCRIPT (AT FIRST).

Dick passed away before the film was completed, but he kept up with the script as it went through various permutations. He loathed Hampton Fancher’s original draft, saying he was “angry and disgusted” at the way it “cleaned my book up of all the subtleties and of the meaning … It had become a fight between androids and a bounty hunter.” A revised screenplay by David Webb Peoples brought Dick around: “I couldn’t believe what I was reading! ... The whole thing had simply been rejuvenated in a very fundamental way ... [The screenplay and the novel] reinforce each other, so that someone who started with the novel would enjoy the movie and someone who started with the movie would enjoy the novel. I was amazed that Peoples could get some of those scenes to work. It taught me things about writing that I didn’t know.”

Other bits of trivia address the question of whether Rick Deckard is a replicant himself or not. And there’s more about Blade Runner you’ll want to know at mental_floss.

Silly Season in the UK

There have been a few news stories out of the UK that have Americans scratching their heads. This is news? We are used to British newspaper websites being full of stories that would never make the papers here, but lately stories are published that are silly even by British standards. It’s the Silly Season, in which Parliament is on vacation, so there are fewer government news stories to fill space.

The above story made the BBC. A rogue lawn chair attacked a cow at a farm near Boughton, Northamptonshire. You can clearly see the chair has the cow subdued in a headlock. By the time the Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service arrived, the cow had freed itself from the chair. Thank goodness! -via Metafilter
 


Then there was the case of two wheelbarrow planters that had been tipped over in Henley on Thames.

Caroline Langler, a member of the Henley in Bloom committee, who had planted up the two barrows, said: “Obviously it’s annoying someone has knocked it over because I had enormous pleasure doing them both.

“When I was doing them people were stopping to ask about them and telling me how wonderful they were. People really appreciate them.” Mrs Langler, of Queen Street, said she was just thankful the barrow wasn’t pushed into the road.

The story has a happy ending, as Langler picked up the wheelbarrows and replanted them. Whew, that was a close one. -via Arbroath

Can you find a story out of the UK that beats these two?

The Perfect Breakfast Cocktail Is Cereal, Milk, and Bourbon

What should you drink for breakfast? You can guzzle down coffee. But that gets old after a while and stimulants are not necessarily a good idea in the morning. A better alternative is an invigorating cocktail. Kim Patton-Bragg, a professional mixologist in New Orleans, has a great solution that she calls the Cereal Killer. She describes her recipe in Garden & Gun magazine:

4 cups Honey Smacks cereal
1 gallon whole milk
2½ bottles Rebel Yell bourbon
2 oz. vanilla extract
1 quart simple syrup
Nutmeg, for garnish

The preparation takes a while because the cereal needs to marinate in the milk for at least an hour. I recommend starting that process the night before. Patton-Bragg says that if it's prepared correctly, the Cereal Killer is "an eye-opener."

17 Actors Impersonating Other Actors


YouTube Link

One amusing side effect of actors spending long hours together while waiting on sets in their down time is that they occasionally become familiar with each other's voice inflection and mannerisms. Being actors, with (hopefully) an existing flair for imitating fellow humans, many become adept at impersonating each other.

Some actors have more of a talent for it than others  for instance, Kevin Spacey is widely acknowledged to be great at practically flawless imitations. But who knew that Bradley Cooper could do a few pretty good ones? His Owen Wilson is good. His Walken isn't bad either. See all seventeen imitations by various actors at Esquire.

Stock Photos Of Real New Yorkers Doing Things

As a rule New Yorkers do things on a daily basis, just like pretty much everyone else in the world, but it's often assumed the things New Yorkers do are strange things, urbane things, utterly New Yorkerly things.

The thing I said about the New Yorkerly things they do is actually true, but that's because New Yorkers have access to things many others don't, like one dollar pizza slices that actually taste good.

On the flip side they also have to deal with everyday things others don't, like mysterious fluids falling from the sky.

New York Public Radio WNYC cast real New Yorkers for a series of 35 stock photos depicting everyday encounters and activities- NYC style, which are free to share and use for non-commercial purposes.

So the next time you need a pic of a guy making people uncomfortable on the subway with his “manspreading” you've got it! Thanks WNYC, we'll put them to good use.

Removing Bees from a House

Photographer Larry Chen noticed that honeybees were living in a wall of his house. They weren’t coming inside, but who wants bees living in the wall? Instead of calling an exterminator, he contacted a beekeeper named Mike.

(YouTube link)

Mike managed to remove an established hive and contain almost all the bees without harm. There was some wall repair to do, but it was a nice squared-off hole, so it shouldn’t have been too difficult. Highlights of the 5-hour process were recorded for your edification and amusement. In other words, this is fascinating. -via reddit

Goron's Ruby Rock Candy - The Taste Will Knock You Out!


Goron's Ruby Rock Candy by Cory Freeman Design

When the Gorons started making candy everyone was pretty skeptical about how it would taste, but his Ruby Rock candy is actually pretty good! Too bad the pieces only come in large and legendary sizes, so nobody can actually fit those delicious boulders in their mouths. Zelda suggested Link tell the Gorons their candy pieces are too big for Hylians to eat, but Link knew better than to insult those rocky Death Mountain dwellers with a criticism of their candy. Instead, he slipped on his Goron mask and pretended to be one of them...

The Marmot’s Roar

I always imagined a marmot would sound something like this. So I was as surprised as you will be to hear one actually vocalizing.

(YouTube link)

This was recorded on Blackcomb Mountain in British Columbia by the folks at Lone Goat Soap Co. Naturally, YouTubers had to edit this video to “improve” the roar, and to insert the marmot into an opera and a Taylor Swift concert. You can see those at Tastefully Offensive. -via Arbroath

Marilyn Monroe's 1961 Letter Detailing a Harrowing Psych Ward Stay Against Her Will

Marilyn Monroe in a still from The Misfits, 1960 | Image: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer

In 1960, during the filming of Marilyn Monroe's last completed film, The Misfits, her life began to fall apart. Monroe's husband at the time, playwright Arthur Miller, had written the screenplay, which was about a troubled woman in love with an older man. By all accounts, the story was Miller's interpretation of his and Monroe's marriage. 

The shoot, filmed in the Nevada desert at temperatures regularly over 100 degrees, was punishing. Monroe watched helplessly as Miller, on set, fell in love with photographer Inge Morath. Mercurial, alcoholic film director John Huston spent most of the time drunk. Clark Gable, Marilyn's costar, died of a heart attack only a week after filming ended. In this horrific set of circumstances, Monroe's remaining stability crumbled and she increasingly abused prescription drugs. In November of 1960, Arthur Miller filed for divorce. 

By the beginning of 1961, a psychiatrist Monroe had seen committed her to Payne Whitney Psychiatric Clinic in New York. What Monroe believed would be a few days rest turned into being locked in a padded cell against her will. Until she was released against the staff's direction with the intervention of former husband Joe DiMaggio, the actress felt trapped and terrified. Read Monroe's six-page letter to another psychiatrist, penned during her psych ward stay, at Letters of Note. Via Open Culture

Film From The 1940s Showing Women Use Strange Exercise Contraptions

 photo Kr957r_zpse1gbd7pt.gif

It's not uncommon to see people hitting treadmills and ellipticals to get in shape, but back in the 1940s an exercise machine called the Streamliner was introduced, and it was supposed to fight the "battle of the bulge" for you

(YouTube Link)

Something tells me there were more than a few “unfortunate accidents” attributed to the machines in this video, because they look like they were invented by sadists.

Female Spies and Gender-Bending Soldiers Who Changed the Course of the Civil War

Belle Boyd, teenager, “fast woman,” and Confederate spy.

Karen Abbott grew up in Philadelphia and then moved to Atlanta. She experienced culture shock when suddenly confronted with people who seem to still be fighting the Civil War. It piqued her interest in the conflict, and she wondered how women were involved. There are always women involved in war, even if they don’t make it into textbooks. Abbot became intrigued with the stories of Elizabeth Van Lew, Rose O’Neal Greenhow, Sarah Emma Evelyn Edmondson, and Maria Isabella “Belle” Boyd. The stories of these spies and soldiers intersected with each other, and involved plenty of other women who left fewer accounts behind. They used the misogyny of the time to their own advantage.     

In this climate, women made great spies precisely because of the way 19th-century society underestimated them. During the Civil War, they “were able to take society’s ideas about the weakness of womanhood and brilliantly exploit them,” Abbott says. “Women were always supposed to be the victims of war, not the perpetrators. One of my favorite quotes in the book is from a Lincoln official, who was completely flummoxed when he said, ‘What are we going to do with these fashionable women spies?’ The idea that women are not only capable of treasonous activity, but they are also capable of executing it more deftly than men was something that had never occurred to these men. The women were either above suspicion, in the case of somebody like Elizabeth Van Lew, or below suspicion, in the case of somebody like Mary Jane Bowser. Nobody even knew she could read, and of course, she was probably the smartest one of them all.”

If they were caught, or on the verge of being caught, female spies could play dumb, helpless, or indignant, declaring “How dare you accuse me? I am a defenseless lady!” Abbott says men didn’t know how to handle it. “Another one of my favorite scenes in the book is the hearing where Rose O’Neal Greenhow is being charged with treason against the United States,” she says. “The prosecution is questioning and badgering her, and she’s turning the tables on them and putting them on the defensive brilliantly. Then one of her interrogators says ‘I don’t think you are bent so much on treason as mischief.’ And it’s like, ‘Mischief? I basically won the battle of Manassas for the South, and I’m up to mischief?’ Even when the evidence was clearly laid out right in front of the men, she was just guilty of ‘mischief,’ because what more could a woman be guilty of?”

Abbot’s research resulted in a book titled Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy: Four Women Undercover in the Civil War. The book will be available next week, but you can read an overview of those stories at Collectors Weekly.

History of Cockney Rhyming Slang and How to Correctly Speak It


YouTube Link

In this, the thirty-sixth episode of Anglophenia, host Kate Arnell presents some fascinating facts about Cockney rhyming slang. How did it come into existence?  

"It’s not 100 percent known how cockney rhyming slang — the replacement of a common word with a rhyming phrase — came about, but it’s typically thought that the tricky word play was a type of code amongst groups of people in 19th century London who wanted to speak to each other without others being able to understand (for instance, street merchants who were haggling with customers). The “tricky” part is, in almost all cases, the omission of the secondary rhyming word, making the origin and meaning of the phrase unknown."

Tricky indeed! But very interesting in that it began as sort of a secret language or code, particularly given that some non-Brit English speakers claim to this day to have trouble deciphering it at times. Via Laughing Squid

A Brief History of the Road

From ancient mud bricks to salty beet juice, roads have  a long, winding history—and a glowing future.

(Image credit: Brent Moore)

Happy Trail

Long-wandering human tribes finally hunker down in 9000 BCE and form villages. To hop between settlements, they convert game trails—like the 440-mile Natchez Trace trail between Mississippi and Tennessee—into walking paths.

Ox News

Around 5000 BCE, oxen become the preferred draft animal and the travois—a V-shaped frame that shoulders heavy weights—becomes the world’s first vehicle. Trackways widen to accommodate bigger loads.

Circling Up

Sumerians invent the best thing to come before sliced bread—the wheel—around 4000 BCE. Roads made of mud brick appear in the Indus Valley, while Mesopotamians build stone streets near Ur, Iraq.

Gourmet Cuisine at a Remote Antarctic Base

This isn't McMurdo Station, which can house over a thousand residents, but the tiny Palmer Station. Only about two dozen people live there. It is, by Antarctic standards, out in the boonies. But that doesn't stop Mike Heller, the station chef, from developing impressive meals with limited ingredients that arrive only every three months.

Sometimes it's hot dog soup, which is precisely what it sounds like. But Heller can also get creative and whip up some impressive deserts. Pictured above is his mocha semifreddo. Sky Moret explored Palmer Station cuisine in a fascinating article in Roads & Kingdoms. She writes:

“I would challenge you to buy three months of produce at your grocery store … and then not go shopping again for three more months,” he tells me, pointing to 50 large cans of tomatoes stacked in his dry-goods storage room that he’ll transform into roasted tomato bisque, spicy pizza sauce, and black bean chili. […]

To add some variety, our science support crew makes exotic dishes as well. On the other U.S. Antarctic ship, the Nathaniel B. Palmer, I enjoy making liquid nitrogen–cooled ice cream with our excess supply. Scientists clad in cryogenic gloves and safety glasses stir cream, milk, sugar, and flavoring in large stainless steel bowls while I pour the super-cooled liquid into each, and a midday treat is served.

Beatles vs. Stones and Two Unmade Stanley Kubrick Movies

Often the stories of movies that were never made are just as interesting as those that become big hits. Can you imagine Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings starring the Beatles? It was a real idea at one time.  

Before J. R. R. Tolkien sold the film rights for The Lord of the Rings to United Artists, who produced A Hard Day’s Night, in 1969, The Beatles thought it might fulfill their contract nicely. Lennon, one of the best songwriters in music contacted Stanley Kubrick, one of the best directors in the movies, to make it. Lennon reportedly wanted to play Gollum. He cast Paul as Frodo, Ringo as Sam, and George as Gandalf.

J. R.R. Tolkien, who was an English professor at Oxford at the time, was initially in favor of the idea. Lord of the Rings was published in 1954 and the best offer he’d gotten was from literary agent Forrest J. Ackerman who wanted to make a cartoon out of it. Ackerman hadn’t scored his big hit, Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine, yet.

But it was not to be. As it was with the Rolling Stones when they pursued the possibility of starring in a movie version of A Clockwork Orange. Read about both of those projects and why those intriguing movies weren’t made at Den of Geek.

The Egg Map

Dénes Sátor, a Hungarian designer, envisions the Egg Map as a playful navigation device for tourists to use while exploring a new city. It's a compromise between enormous folding paper maps and handheld devices. To zoom, just squeeze the egg. Each quarter has a different color to help you find out where you are. Standardized symbols show visitors how to find important spots, like restaurants and public transportation.

Awesome MacGyver Inspired Household Tricks

As a kid watching MacGyver meant discovering new ways to get out of dangerous situations I would probably never really find myself in during my lifetime.

This knowledge didn't help for much more than creating new ways to kill player characters in roleplaying games, but applying the MacGyver technique to life certainly made things more convenient.

When you go with what you've got you can work MacGyver-esque miracles with stuff you have laying around the house or were probably going to throw away, like using a squirt bottle to make pancakes or sealing a plastic bag with the top of a soda bottle.

11 Rare But Rising Dog Breeds

The American Kennel Club only recognizes new dog breeds when there are a certain number of registered members of that breed. Until then, they compete in dog shows under the “miscellaneous” class. Meet some of the breeds that are beginning to find popularity among dog fans, like the almost-hairless Peruvian Inca Orchid.

The Peruvian Inca Orchid, nicknamed the PIO, is ranked by the AKC as the 166th most popular dog breed. People often think the hairless version has a higher body temperature than other dogs, but according to the AKC, the dog actually just feels warmer to the touch, because there’s no coat between you and the dog’s skin. Of course, no coat can leave her cold, so she’ll probably need a sweater or jacket when temps drop. This charming yet reserved pooch is usually best handled by an experienced owner. We love how PIO fans refer to the small patch of hair on her otherwise-hairless head as the “kiss spot!”

There’s also another hairless breed from America, a long-legged breed from Africa, an adorable Dutch breed you won’t be able to pronounce, and more in a rundown of new dog breeds at Care2. -via the Presurfer
