Couple Find Strange Black "Walking" Fish In New Zealand Bay

People come across odd animals all the time, posting the photographic evidence online and sparking a wave of discussion about what the heck that animal in the pic actually is.

Most of the time these critters end up being nothing more than deformed or otherwise genetically defective, but sometimes their discovery is actually an important biological breakthrough.

A couple in New Zealand found a strange black fish while snorkeling in the Bay of Islands near Auckland, the fish seemingly "walking" along the ocean floor.

They caught the fish and sent it to researcher Andrew Stewart from the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa so he could study it and tell them what they'd found.

Andrew came to the conclusion that the bizarre black fish is actually a rare variation of the striated frogfish, but Andrew was amazed by the fish's jet black coloration considering they're normally brightly colored and boldly striped.

Now the black sheep of the frogfish world is part of the Te Papa collection, where they'll study it to discover whether the black coloration is an evolutionary adaptation or merely a mutation.

Taking a Phone Poll in Iowa

Because so many candidates announced their intentions very early for the 2016 presidential election, the run-up to the Iowa caucuses has taken a particularly long time. It’s got to be a hard, thankless job to call voters in Iowa to ask about their political opinions. Those folks have been bothered for months already. Seth Myers tried calling a few folks -probably a lot more than made it into the final mix- to see how they’re holding up under the onslaught.

(YouTube link)

Myers did find a few who were not only willing to talk, but were pretty funny. The funniest of all was his own mother. The Iowa caucus will be held on Monday, February first. Once that’s done, the time between other states’ primaries will be shorter and the voters of those states less scrutinized. -via Uproxx

The 8 Different Types Of Star Wars Fans

There have been Star Wars fans as long as I've been alive, and yet growing up as part of the nerd tribe means being introduced to all the different kinds of Star Wars fans that exist within this franchise centric fan base.

I've always considered myself to be a bit of a casual fan, I've played all the video games and a few editions of the tabletop roleplaying game but I don't know the name of every alien race or which planet every character calls home.

But according to this comic strip created by Andy Kluthe for Dorkly I'm actually an Original Trilogy Purist with a bit of an Extended Canon-ites streak when we're in the middle of an Edge Of The Empire campaign.

Simon's Cat Logic: Crazy Time

Simon Tofield, the animator behind Simon’s Cat, talks with Nicky Trevorrow, a cat behavior expert at Cats Protection about why our furballs do the odd things they do, specifically the sudden craziness. You’ve seen your cat switch off his senses and explode in a flurry of activity like a scalded haint. That’s crazy time.

Ten Priceless Facts About Antiques Roadshow

If you don't care about precious objects from our past you'll see the Antiques Roadshow as dull and uninteresting, but those who enjoy hearing about how cool old stuff was made and why that stuff is so valuable today find every episode to be priceless.

Many fans in the U.S. have been watching the show from the very beginning, because the American version began in 1997, but the UK version started the craze way back in 1979.

People line up by the hundreds when the Antiques Roadshow comes to town hoping their "valuable" stuff lands them a spot on the show, but only about 0.2 percent of the hopeful make it on the air.

Those who have been lucky enough to land a spot have struck it rich more than a few times, but an Oklahoma man's 18th-century Chinese cups still top the list as highest appraisal ever, the cups worth around $1.5 million.

Barbie’s Got A Brand New Bod

Starting today, shoppers at Barbie.com will be able to select Barbie dolls with four different body types. There’s the original Barbie we all know, and the new styles: curvy, tall, and petite. The dolls are also available in seven skin tones, 22 eye colors, and 24 hair styles. Barbie dolls have drawn criticism for their unrealistic dimensions for almost 60 years now. As the 21st century dawned, research showed that Barbie’s unnatural thinness indeed affected young girls’ body image. But the real turnaround came when sales began to drop a few years ago.

As much as Mattel has tried to market her as a feminist, Barbie’s famous figure has always overshadowed her business outfits. At her core, she’s just a body, not a character, a canvas upon which society can pro-ject its anxieties about body image. “Barbie has all this baggage,” says Jess Weiner, a branding expert and consultant who has worked with Dove, Disney and Mattel to create empowering messaging for girls. “Her status as an empowered woman has been lost.”

With all that in mind, Kim Culmone, head of design, posed a challenge to her team:

If you could design Barbie today, how would you make her a reflection of the times? Out of that came changing Barbie’s face to have less makeup and look younger, giving her articulated ankles so she could wear flats as well as heels, giving her new skin tones to add diversity and then of course changing the body. While curvy Barbie’s hips, thighs and calves are visibly larger than before, from the waist up she is less Jessica Rabbit than she is pear-shaped. Mattel refuses to discuss the actual proportions of the new dolls or how it came to decide on them.

The rollout is planned to be gradual. The new Barbie shapes require different clothes for each model, and there are now two shoe sizes. With all the new products, stocking stores will be slow as the company negotiates shelf space. For now, they are only available online. Read more about Barbie’s changeover at Time.

What the Blues Can Teach You About Life, Art and Everything In-Between

Recording artist and music professor Mike Errico delves into what "the blues" are. The term is culturally loaded, and yet traces it roots from all over. We know the term "Rhythm & Blues," but it was coined as a replacement for "race music," not as a definitive description of black music. The blues can also be heard in a cowboy’s harmonica, the tortured country songs of Patsy Cline, and in the Klezmer tunes of European Jews. To lay the foundation, Errico starts with the nuts-and-bolts of music by explaining notes and scales.

To me, blue notes exist in the cracks between these scale tones. To stretch the “house” metaphor, they are the notes that sulk under the staircase, sit on the roof all night, and compulsively check under the bed for monsters. You know these notes intuitively, not because you know the scales, necessarily, but because you’re human: You grew up in this house, and you know how it feels. These are the notes that give music an ache, an empathy, and the kind of grind that makes you scrunch up your face, draw up your shoulders and stretch your open hands skyward. I’m sure you know the feeling. If not, we may have to check your pulse.

How does that happen? Again, bringing it back to the scale tones, it happens by playing something that exists slightly outside the lines drawn by whatever scale you happen to be in. Warning: Being outside those lines does not mean that everything is blue and achy and humanly beautiful — some of it is God-awful, out of tune, and face-scrunching in the GAH, how long has this milk been in the fridge!? sense of the term.

Using our 12-tone approach, “blue notes” are most commonly a lowered third, fifth, or seventh. In some cases, they’re technically “wrong,” in that they don’t belong in a given scale, but even so, musicians know that any sound can work with any framework, if it’s handled right.

Handling that framework right takes not only talent, but authenticity. Ultimately, singing the blues is a very personal way of communicating. Read an excerpt of Errico’s class lecture on the blues (with examples) at Observer. -via Digg

How To Keep Your Cool After Bombing Your Trumpet Recital

P.T. Barnum is quoted as saying "Always leave them wanting more"- when you have the audience wrapped around your finger and dying to see what you're going to do next you should bow, say thanks and split.

But this motto can also be applied to performers who are bombing, because if they can do something to win the audience back before exiting the stage the crowd will go wild.

(YouTube Link)

The kid in this video may have just moonwalked his way into the hearts of America, and I've never seen somebody turn the crowd's attitude around so quickly after bombing so badly! Maybe he should try his hand at stand up comedy?

Where Did That Corn Dog Come From?

To make the county fair staple, you need ingredients from all over the globe.

(Image credit: Twodollarwhore)

1. EGGS

Most eggs come from Leghorn hens. According to Steve Ettlinger’s Twinkie, Deconstructed, they’re cracked in specialty plants like Papetti’s in New Jersey, which breaks nearly 7 million a day! Once liquefied, the eggs are hosed into trucks and shipped off.

2. CORN SYRUP

Yellow #2 dent field corn puts the “corn” in your corn dog. Corn syrup is made in huge batches: First, 40,000 bushels of corn are soaked in seven-story tanks of hot water for two days. Corn starch is separated from the wet-milled kernels, centrifuged, and washed up to 14 times! Most of the starch is used to make cardboard, but the rest is placed in a vat with hydrochloric acid and heated into corn syrup.

3. SMOKE FLAVORING

Liquid smoke comes from actual smoke! To make it, wood chips or sawdust are burned and the vapor is captured and condensed into a liquid. After the dogs are cooked, they get a quick shower in it.

4. CELLULOSE*

For nearly 6,000 years, people have used animal intestines to encase sausages. But chances are, your frank was wrapped in trees. Wood chips are steamed, saturated in a stew of caustic sodium sulfide, cooked, and screened into wood pulp. The result is cellulose, popular for paper, textiles, and hot dog casings (which are stripped off after the dog is factory cooked).

5. THIAMINE MONONITRATE (B1)

Although B1 is found in brown rice husks, it’s usually synthesized from petrochemicals derived from coal tar. (It’s easier and cheaper to synthetically create vitamins than to extract them from plants.) Most B1 companies keep the details secret.

His Favorite Star Wars Movie

A few days ago, Dogma mentioned that her granddaughter had only seen The Force Awakens and none of the other Star Wars movies. That just seems so cockeyed to us older fans, but it makes perfect sense for someone who is too young to have been around for the prequels, much less the original trilogy. Nevertheless, a real Star Wars fan would’ve felt a disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced, at the very minute this happened. This is the latest from Chris Hallbeck at Maximumble.

The All-Female Senate

On Tuesday morning of this week, the U.S. Senate convened in Washington. But this session was different. Many were absent due to icy road conditions, and those that showed up for work were all women. Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska presided, mainly to delay business until the workforce got back to normal.  

“As we convene this morning, you look around the chamber, the presiding officer is female. All of our parliamentarians are female. Our floor managers are female. All of our pages are female.”

Murkowski noted that she and Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), who was wielding the Senate gavel, hadn’t planned the all-women session. It was, she said, just a coincidence.

Coincidence? Maybe it had something to do with the difficulty of actually getting to work that day. You can see a video of Murkowski’s comments at The Washington Post. If this snowstorm had happened a couple of decades ago, the Capitol Building might have been completely empty.  -via Daily of the Day

6 Star Wars Characters Meet Their New Equivalents

If you found The Force Awakens to be a bit familiar, you’re not the only one. There are a lot of elements that harken back to the original trilogy, and the various character types have many things in common with all adventure movies. Here they are, meeting each other, in this video that may contain spoilers for those who haven’t seen The Force Awakens. If you haven’t seen the original trilogy, this will spoil nothing.

How to Win at Monopoly and Lose All Your Friends

Someone who goes by the name of elpher explained that he doesn’t like Monopoly. Yet he always wins. The point of winning is to prove to his friends that Monopoly is not fun, and they should play something else. Then he gives us his exact strategy so you, too, can win the game. First off, read and understand the rules, because no one else does. He lays out the best monopolies for you to collect. Never upgrade your houses to hotels, because you want to create a housing shortage. He is ruthless.   

At this point, you more or less have the game sewn up. If losing a normal game of monopoly is frustrating, losing to this strategy is excruciating, as a losing opponent essentially has no path to victory, even with lucky rolls. Your goal is to play conservatively, lock up more resources, and let the other players lose by attrition. If you want to see these people again, I recommend not gloating, but simply state that you're playing to win, and that it wasn't your idea to play Monopoly in the first place.

My normal strategy is to avoid the game in the first place, but if you want to learn to win, make sure you load all the images at imgur. -via the A.V. Club

The Long, Incredibly Tortuous, and Fascinating Process of Creating a Chinese Font


(Photo: Smile Always)

There are 26 characters in the English alphabet. But Chinese has a radically different writing system. If you want to be able to read a newspaper, you need to know about 2,000 characters. If you want be able to read a novel successfully, you'll need another 1,000 or so. And some comprehensive dictionaries have over 85,000 characters.

One practical result of this writing system is that creating a new font is an extraordinary feat of labor. A typographer can't whip up the next Helvetica in a week. Nikhil Sonnad describes this character building process in Quartz:

“It all starts with research,” says Winston Su, co-founder of Justfont, a Taiwanese startup that focuses on delivering fonts through the web. In most cases, the research phase lasts an entire year.

The goal of this year-long process is to take a fuzzy idea for a hypothetical new typeface, and develop it into a set of a few hundred “representative characters.” These set the tone for the thousands of characters to follow. Latin typefaces are designed in a similar way, but the scale is entirely different. In an interview with Fast Company, venerable designer Steve Matteson said he always starts a new Latin typeface with just a handful of glyphs—capital H, O, and V, and lowercase n, o, and d.

The research phase is part design, part calligraphy, part grammatology, part market research.

Everything may begin with some vague notion of the feel a typeface should have. In his interview, Matteson adds that a typeface generally starts with an adjective, like “approachable, friendly, feminine, masculine. All of these adjectives play into the detailing that we would do to the letter forms to help emphasize those attributes.”

Similarly for Chinese; “modern but not boring” is how Su described the idea behind JinXuan, Justfont’s first font designed in-house, still in development. The difference is that, because of the vast amount of work involved, a Chinese typeface cannot be created by a single designer with a singular vision, as is often the case for Latin scripts. Instead a collaborative team has to start with this fuzzy notion and then settle on a uniform design. That’s what the research stage is all about.

Apollo 1: The Fire That Shocked NASA

It was 49 years ago today, January 27, 1967, that a launch rehearsal for the Apollo 1 mission turned into a tragedy. The launch was scheduled for February 21. The rehearsal was a simulation of the countdown and launch. The spaceship cabin was filled with 100% oxygen.

Just after 6:31 that evening, the routine test took a turn. Engineers in mission control saw an increase in oxygen flow and pressure inside the cabin. The telemetry was accompanied by a garbled transmission that sounded like “fire.” The official record reflects the communications problem. The transmission was unclear, but the panic was obvious as an astronaut yelled something like “they’re fighting a bad fire — let’s get out. Open ‘er up” or “we’ve got a bad fire — let’s get out. We’re burning up.” The static made it impossible to hear the exact words or even distinguish who was speaking.

Efforts to open up the capsule were useless, because the doors opened to the inside, and the pressure in the capsule was too high. The highly flammable oxygen blazed out of control. Astronauts Gus Grissom, Ed White, and Roger Chaffee died that day, the first casualties of the U.S. space program. It took a year of meticulous investigation to determine exactly what happened, and what would be changed to keep it from happening again.

The Teen Who Trekked 1,800 Miles Through Canadian Wilderness Disguised as a Man

Western Canada during the 19th-century was a harsh place for Europeans. The Hudson's Bay Company sent workers out west to support the fur trade, but women were forbidden. Yet 15-year-old Isobel Gunn left her home in the Scottish Orkney Islands in 1806 dressed as male, and made her way across Canada, working as hard as any man. Why would she set out on such a backbreaking, dangerous life? For the usual reasons that women in history have lived as men: freedom, self-determination, respect, adventure, and money.      

Others note that early 19th-century Orkney really only only gave three options to men: risk life and limb fishing in the dangerous North Sea for a pittance, sign up to fight against Napoleon’s army for a pittance, or join Hudson’s Bay Company, head to Canada, and earn a whopping £8 a year–far more than any of the men could earn at home.

As a woman, Isobel would never be able to earn as much as even the poorest male worker in Orkney. And she’d likely need that money–one side of her face was marred by smallpox scars, which would have ruined her marriage prospects. So why not dress as a man and try to earn some money for herself?

Gunn earned the respect of the men she traveled and worked with, but she was eventually found out. Read the story of Isobel Gunn at Atlas Obscura.

30 More Life Hacks Debunked (Part Four)

Will putting your onion in the freezer keep you from crying as you cut it?

On this week’s mental_floss List Show, John Green tests more tips from the internet that may or may not be of any use. The best part is seeing Green turn red as he tries to tear an apple in two with his bare hands. I have to object to his whipped cream asessment. This will work, but ten quick shakes are not sufficient to do the job. This is the fourth of a series. You’ll find more “life hacks” (or tips) debunked in part one, part two, and part three.

Quentin Tarantino Confirms His Movies All Exist In The Same Universe

The characters in Quentin Tarantino's movies feel like part of the same universe, and whether the storyline takes place in the past or present certain key elements seem eerily similar in all of his films.

Tarantino also likes to include unifying elements that are obviously meant to be, like the Big Kahuna Burger or having a Vega brother in both Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs, all leading to the unified Tarantino universe fan theory.

Quentin finally revealed the fan theory to be true during a recent interview on The Project, confirming that his movies all take place in the same cinematic universe, well, two universes to be precise.

(YouTube Link)

There's the "realer than real" universe, which is where all the characters live, and then there's the "movie" universe within the "realer" universe that serves as entertainment for the characters.

Which is why Uma Thurman's "realer" character in Pulp Fiction describes the plot to Kill Bill to Vincent Vega when talking about her favorite TV show Fox Force Five...is your brain smoking yet?
