Green Tie in Front of a Green Screen
TMJ4 weatherman Scott Steele found out why you're not supposed to wear a green tie when giving the weather in front of a green screen:

The news director told me to get a power tie, I just didn't realize how powerful it is ...

It certainly made the weather report more interesting, perhaps all weathermen should wear green ties!

The Yoshimoto cube is nowhere complex as it appears to be. It's basically 2 rings which folds into a star and into an empty cube which can hold the star. The 2 rings can be placed together when it is folded 4x2. Once you figured it out, it is straigthforward.

"Fur Elise," not "Moonlight" Sonata. What the guy did was learned to play "Fur Elise" in reverse, and also say his dialogue in reverse (probably by spelling it out phonetically). The result, when the video & audio is run backward, is strange-sounding speech, "Fur Elise" going forward but sounding almost as though it's played on a harmonium (a sort of pump-organ) --- and of course all kinds of backward action from his friend. Interesting experiment! One person who posted a response on Flickr even supplied their "re-reversed" recording of the piece. "Fur Elise" is still pretty recognizable backward.
