• Does it mean anything that only Scalia and Thomas (only 2/9) would have granted the stay?
  • AWESOME.
  • Man, I adore the Big Lebowski and loves me some Pynchon, but I'll be damned if Inherent Vice wasn't a painfully boring slog. It took me five times longer to finish than Gravity's Rainbow, and I only did it out of some perverse sense of obligation. I might see the movie, but only because I fear my dream of Terry Gilliam's The Crying of Lot 49 will never be a reality.
  • I wonder if there are 3D printing advantages to be realized in a vacuum? Are there useful and desirable materials and techniques for which the presence of air under pressure is a hindrance? One thing that occurs to me is that in a hard vacuum you could replace sintering of metals with vacuum welding. A 3D printed metal object where every particle is effectively vacuum welded in place would be incredibly strong. The trick would be to keep the particles from welding before you used them. But if you stored them in a pressurized chamber and your process allowed sufficient time for surface outgassing... well, some process along those lines might work.
  • The captions are indeed odd. I think they've been translated from Russian. I didn't spend a lot of time in Tehran but these photos match my experience of Iran pretty well. I spent time in a couple of family houses in Shiraz and family life there was not remarkably different to that in the west. The older family members prayed three times a day but the younger ones- from teenagers to early thirties- rarely did. Younger women seemed inclined to see how little they could cover their hair in public and get away with it. They were entirely familiar with western pop culture and smartphones were everywhere. My greatest frustration there was that I was never allowed in the kitchens to see how the sensational meals we ate were prepared. This was in 2010 and I couldn't walk down the street without people telling me they didn't like Ahmadinejad.
  • Yes. Given the vastly different orders of magnitude between the mass of the Earth and that of the ice sheets, I would, personally, be surprised if there were an effect. Is there geological evidence of periodic warming/cooling being correlated with shifts in the magnetic field?
  • A lot of life boat captains around in those days.
  • I just came from Inherent Vice, and I thought it was about the most perfect synthesis of PTA and Pynchon one could imagine. I think one's tolerance of / enthusiasm for that idea will determine a lot about whether you love or hate this film.

  • That's fish, people, not Fish-people.
  • On a more serious note, a quick flip through the legal code of any of the early American colonies will give you a taste of this brutality. The punishment for pretty much everything was ... death. They didn't really have the resources to imprison people for any period of time (and thereby not have the extra help in the ferocious labor of early settlement), and because the communities were so small and mutually-reliant for survival, any breaking of trust (such as, say, adultery) could be catastrophic. This does have the interesting effect that a lot of crimes went unpunished, if the community felt like it could live with the crime in order to keep the perp's labor, or if the crime was petty, or if they liked the criminal's family, or felt bad for his kids, or whatever -- since the only available punishment was death, people had a lot of incentive to excuse things unless they were fairly major (or they really didn't like the criminal or his family). But yeah, in the really religious colonies the penalties for even the pettiest crimes are death, death, death, and shunning, and in the less religious colonies it's death, death, death, and death. Not until survival of the colony stops dancing on the knife's edge of famine does criminal law get a little less death-y.
  • Gravity is a big problem with 3D printing. Objects have to be designed to support their own weight while being printed, which limits what shapes you can make. So in microgravity you can print things that simply aren't possible on Earth.
  • This is great. My daughter in law and her wife have been hanging on this decision. I knew we could do it.
  • Although not *that kind* of geophysicist (my graduate classes on the geodynamo were some of the more traumatic academic experiences of my life), I don't believe that distribution of mass at the Earth's surface (particularly that of water and ice, the masses of which are orders of magnitude less than mantle density anomalies, let alone anything in the outer core) plays any effect at all. That said, some casual googling yields some suggestions of correlations, though the causality, if any, is probably the other way (variation in the magnetic field affecting climate). Example: Courtillot et al 2007, needs a subscription for full access, which I don't have from here, and comment from Bard and Delaygue 2007 [pdf]. There are older papers relating mass extinctions, global climate change and the geodynamo from older geological time, but they are more speculative and, again, propose links between the geodynamo and major extinction and/or climate events via mantle convection (plumes, outpourings of flood basalts and so on). Again, it's not my field, so if anyone has links or cites to relevant work, it would be great to share.
  • Not allowed to take dogs out of the house? :-( Nope.
  • "She dropped the ball when the C.I.A. was given information that might very well have prevented the 9/11 attacks; she gleefully participated in torture sessions afterward; she misinterpreted intelligence in such a way that it sent the C.I.A. on an absurd chase for Al Qaeda sleeper cells in Montana. And then she falsely told congressional overseers that the torture worked." "But instead of being sanctioned, she was promoted."
  • tl;dr : the relationship between changes in ice volume on the surface and the geodynamo isn't a total non-starter, but it's far from established. It's bound to have some effect, but given all the other influences that change over geologic time I would be surprised if it was in any way a predictable one. But it's a fun subject to search the web for, and there's this: Geomagnetic reversals from impacts on the Earth.
    dust from the impact crater and soot from fires trigger a climate change and the beginning of a little ice age. The redistribution of water near the equator to ice at high latitudes alters the rotation rate of the crust and mantle of the Earth. If the sea-level change is sufficiently large (>10 meters) and rapid (in a few hundred years), then the velocity shear in the liquid core disrupts the convective cells that drive the dynamo.
  • I like seeing how one of the corrections needs a correction... "In yesterday's "Chillin' Wit" column, a fond farewell to former Daily News editor Zack Stallberg as he heads west to New Mexico, stall berg was misquoted..." And I thought Stall Berg was a town in New Mexico...
  • You might want to fix the tags, unless this also involves someone with a single glial cell (I haven't clicked on the links yet).
  • "Taffeta, darling!" is a term of endearment around here. My favorite line from the film actually comes from a 10-second bumper ad Mel Brooks recorded for television. He simply proclaims "DON'T MISS Young Frankenstein! HE won't miss YOU!"
  • \o/
  • Hmm... well, it looks like there has been several suggestions along this line: Doake (1977) A possible effect of ice ages on the Earth's magnetic field, Nature Rampino (1979), Possible relationships between changes in global ice volume, geomagnetic excursions, and the eccentricity of the Earth's orbit, Geology It doesn't look like this had a lot of legs, though the Bard and Delaygue comment I cited above mentions a fair bit of work that modeled the effect of precession on the geodynamo, via tidal effects. Beyond modeling, it looks like it's a difficult story to establish since even establishing the temporal correlation between magnetic field and climate is pretty hard -- the temporal resolution of magnetic intensity and polarity variation being generally poorer than you would want or need. The FPP article -- which isn't about the magnetic field - climate link at all -- looks like a pretty notable contribution because they've managed to find a suitable collection of rocks to begin to approach the sub-millenial resolution you'd want. That said, even if you managed to establish a climate - magnetosphere correlation, what that would mean for causality (magnetic field -> climate or climate -> magnetic field) would still involve some hard work to establish. tl;dr : the relationship between changes in ice volume on the surface and the geodynamo isn't a total non-starter, but it's far from established.
  • Next step: unstoppable replicants!
  • Thanks for this, tmotat. I hadn't seen this book. Now I'm looking forward to reading it.
  • Man, I did *not* have the same reaction to it at all. I thought it drove home over and over again that whatever euphemisms people chose to describe our treatment of detainees, it was torture. Fair enough. I got that too, but tacked on was basically "yeh but they were all bad" from True Lies. What I mean is, yeah they showed what was unequivocally torture, but every single thing said by the characters was justifying it. If you're coming from where you and I are coming from, that justification rings totally hollow--torture can't be justified. But I don't think that's how the movie was intended, nor how it was largely received; it was 24 in long form.

  • At that time the complexity and accuracy of the printed shapes was impressive, but parts were very fragile. How useful is this wrench likely to be? There are lots of materials options these days. I think they have an FDM printer on the ISS. These can be used to print plastics with mechanical properties similar to those of ABS, which is pretty tough. If you look to other technologies, laser sintering can be used to make parts from steel or titanium.

They're a smart bunch, and they've been thinking about this a hell of a lot longer than most of you have. By the way, the printer was brought up on the SpaceX CRS-4 mission a few months ago. The CRS-5 flight was supposed to launch earlier this week, but they had some problems on Wednesday and had to postpone it until next month. Mark my words, THAT launch will blow your mind ...

The phrase, "you can't go home again," might apply to Iran, if one cannot flourish in a theocracy not inclusive of your existence. If people want a free society they have to make that a national agenda, and remind all elements of society, continuusly, that is the agenda. Maybe this is not so easy in Tehran, Ferguson, or Tel Aviv for that matter.
  • I saw this in a theater when I was nine. There was a short silent film shown before the movie where first a man, then a woman, stopping to skinny dip on a hot day have their clothes and bicycles stolen by a crazy looking cackling guy. They form an alliance and start down the road naked and dive into the brush as a car comes by. A double bass falls out of the car as it passes. The naked couple remove the instrument from its case and the woman gets in. Chivalrously, the man begins carrying the case down the road until the car comes back and he jumps into the woods again. The musicians retrieve the case and take it to their concert... I got hit in the back of the head by a set of false teeth. Anyone know what I am talking about?

  • How is it that they have a 3-D printer on the ISS and yet they have never ever sent printing instructions previously? The 3D printer was only taken up in September. While the idea was tossed around for years, especially after the Shuttle program was wound down, it was only recently that they completed ground-based testing (it is designed, naturally, for 0g) and sent it up on the Dragon CRS-4 flight^. It's still officially experimental, and it isn't the highest priority for the crew, who have their days pretty mapped out even without this toy. The procedures for uploading were something imagined but not yet tested, so this was proof of viability (not unexpected). But the question of how well the tools or parts will work overall and how durable they might be is going to be ongoing. The real test will be when something without a spare breaks down and they have to try a 3D-printed part (something not unlike the Apollo 13 fix). At that level, this is serious, potentially life-threatening stuff, so a lengthy and careful proving process is critical. Being NASA, they don't move forward on a step like this until they can fully document and review it.

  • This stuff is so cool that it invites speculation of the sort one might have attempted when contemplating the qualities that made a gasoline engine better than a steam engine: drive in movies, freeways, and asymmetrical warfare, for example. Which is to say, probably impossible to imagine in any detail. Is this where chemical engineering kicks in? Well, maybe pretty soon, eh? Make the parts out of Moon dirt, Mars dirt, all that water and other crap found in comets and asteroids. Material for the next Space Habitat won't have to be lifted out of Earth's gravity well. Or, for that matter, the Moon's, either. Now, how about the nano-printer that can drag atoms around and stack them into workable molecules? A little alcohol here, a magnetic field there, hold your mouth just right, and this could get really sideways really quickly. Food, fuel, tollhouse cookies. Really. The Holyshit factor is strong. Your grandchildren won't be able to imagine not having this stuff, and I doubt that any of us can imagine what their world will look like once the peripheral gadgetry begins to pop up. It's sweet, being scientifically ignorant enough that, unfettered by practical concerns, I can see in the offing what amounts to a matter replicator--email the template, fire up the printer. Peripheral effects are too nebulous to plot. What might an economy look like that's based on, say, templates, rather than specific materials? Rather than commodities, we'd base our wealth on what?--royalties? How would cargo ship captains and cross-country truck drivers make a living? Why Fed-ex if you can email? But wait: Star-Trek, or Road Warrior? Maybe just more of the same.
  • I never seem to get over the thrill of realizing that life as we know it on Earth is only possible because the entire planet is surrounded by a magnetic force-field generated by a massive ball of iron at the Earth's core, shielding us from the constant bombardment of cosmic death rays from the sun. I love the idea of aliens discovering our planet and thinking, That can't be natural, can it?
  • Loved the non-apology apology
  • Her name is Alfreda Frances Bikowsky.
  • Are there really educated people out there that don't know this stuff? Not only that, but there are people who object to this stuff being taught, because it contradicts the national mythologies that they hold dear. It's an attack on their identity. Sometimes the reaction is racial; it's seen as an attack on whiteness. How much students learn about this stuff can really depend on the individual political ideologies of the people in charge of the curriculums in their school district/school. Some students get a far more balanced view than others. Personally, almost everything I know that's interesting and tragic and terrible about American history, I learned outside of school.
  • If comic books have taught me anything, it means we're all going to get some fantastic powers. One out of four of us might have some minor side effects, though. If Fox plays their cards right, maybe the can time the release of their FF/X-men crossover film to coincide with the flip.
  • My take on them is they just told us to F-off a few years back, in no uncertain terms, and went about their business. "Throughout the existence of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the slogan [death to America] has formed a pillar of its revolutionary values. It is regularly chanted at Friday prayers and other public events, which is often accompanied by a burning of the flag of the United States. These events include the November 4 anniversary of the U.S. embassy seizure, which Iranian leaders declared in 1987 as a national holiday called "Death to America Day." State-sponsored murals that feature the slogan "Death to America" are common in Iranian cities, particularly Tehran." Those Iranis look pretty alive and happy in their private and public moments. "Six Iranians arrested for appearing in a video dancing to Pharrell Williams' song Happy have been sentenced to up to one year in prison and 91 lashes, their lawyer says. The sentences were suspended for three years, meaning they will not go to prison unless they reoffend, he adds." I can't understand how they have managed to stay in power so long in the face of such a young population. Maybe quite a few people in Iran are actually ok with women in burqas, public executions, demonstrations with burning flags and the nuclear program?
  • Or if you prefer, the 39 language mega-version.
  • The Shocking Savagery of America's Early History, a look at historian Bernard Bailyn's book.
    Bailyn has not painted a pretty picture. Little wonder he calls it The Barbarous Years and spares us no details of the terror, desperation, degradation and widespread torture—do you really know what being "flayed alive" means? (The skin is torn from the face and head and the prisoner is disemboweled while still alive.) And yet somehow amid the merciless massacres were elements that gave birth to the rudiments of civilization—or in Bailyn's evocative phrase, the fragile "integument of civility"—that would evolve 100 years later into a virtual Renaissance culture, a bustling string of self-governing, self-sufficient, defiantly expansionist colonies alive with an increasingly sophisticated and literate political and intellectual culture that would coalesce into the rationale for the birth of American independence. All the while shaping, and sometimes misshaping, the American character. It's a grand drama in which the glimmers of enlightenment barely survive the savagery, what Yeats called "the blood-dimmed tide," the brutal establishment of slavery, the race wars with the original inhabitants that Bailyn is not afraid to call "genocidal," the full, horrifying details of which have virtually been erased.


    Also reviewed in Harvard Magazine (one of the new histories), The New Republic, and by Charles C. Mann in The New York Times:
    Now comes "The Barbarous Years," the next installment. It circles back to a period that most Americans don't hear much about in school: the chaotic decades from the establishment of Jamestown (England's first permanent colony in the Americas) in 1607 up to King Philip's War (the vicious conflict that effectively expelled Indians from New England) in 1675-76. Bailyn's goal is to show how a jumble of migrants, "low and high born," sought "to recreate, if not to improve, in this remote and, to them, barbarous environment, the life they had known before." As the title indicates, the story is as grim as it is fascinating: a group portrait in tones of greed, desperation and brutality. In recent years conservative writers dismayed by historical revisionism have flooded stores with books extolling the character and sagacity of America's founders. "The Barbarous Years" is not one of them.

  • So much for my Long Now 10000 Year Compass proposal.
  • Maybe quite a few people in Iran are actually ok with women in burqas, public executions, demonstrations with burning flags and the nuclear program? Maybe quite a few people in the US are actually ok with unfettered access to guns, rampant and racist executions, the brutalising and murder of black people by the police and the nuclear programme? But given that it is surely unproductive to reduce nations to their maddest and most miserable extremes, I'm not sure what agreeing on this would tell us about either country, though. Apart from maybe that mutual demonisation by Iran and the USA is probably part of the problem, rather than the solution.
  • A while back I saw a couple of art films from Iran. They were not allowed showings in regular theaters, but could show in an educational venue. They were a visual feast, the countryside was beautiful, they were human stories. No broad humanization of the Irani people was allowed at the time. Maybe it has changed.
  • Gene Wilder is just so amazing in this that it makes me so sad that he's had so little work over the last 25 years. For the record, he says it's by choice:
    Would you return to acting if the right project came along? I'm tired of watching the bombing, shooting, killing, swearing and 3-D. I get 52 movies a year sent to me, and maybe there are three good [ones]. That's why I went into writing. It's not that I wouldn't act again. I'd say, "Give me the script. If it's something wonderful, I'll do it." But I don't get anything like that.

  • I have seen this movie more times than I can count, and it really does get better over time. I used to think Blazing Saddles was funnier on a laff-by-laff basis, but it's true, it doesn't hold up. YF is just beautiful on so many levels, not the least of which is the sumptuous cinematography. The ridiculousness of the dialogue in that super-serious setting makes me cry laughing every time. And it really does worm its way into our collective lexicon. My husband and I were making dinner the other night, and I don't even remember what I said, but he replied, "It could be worse. It could be raining." I still will find myself humming "Ain't got no booodddyyyy," I will ask people if they want "vawm milk, peh-heps?" and we'll occasionally shout "VOOTSCHTOPS" for no reason. Awesome post. We watched this a few weeks ago, but it's never too soon for a rewatch.
  • Sickening, sickening movie. I'd be unsurprised if CIA money financed it, it was that blatant as propaganda. Much like The Hurt Locker, I thought it was an interesting study of how the larger process destroyed Chastain's character. Though of course lots of people (mistakenly IMHO) also thought The Hurt Locker was a gross pro-war movie.
  • Excellent post, the man of twists and turns. Thanks.
  • Suck it, homophobes.
  • I just watched this on TCM the other night, and saw the trip to Hell--my brother and I realized that we had never seen that scene, though we had seen the movie itself many times on TV over the years. I assume the scene was regularly cut for network TV airing. I can see why; it pops out of the story very easily. The greased-up shirtless musclemen were a deeeefinite eye-opener. And Alec Guinness chortling (as said musclemen drag in Scrooge's chain), "It's even bigger than I thought it would be!" Oh, my.
  • Have you heard rap in Arabic? I've been fascinated with an Egyptian compilation klang linked on his blog around the time of the initial Egyptian revolution. I have not. I'd love a youtube link as well (i'll download that, but seeing people rap is pretty awesome), or better yet a FPP.
  • Da iawn!
  • Inspector Kemp lighting his cigarette in the the funniest damn thing I have ever seen. This movie has kept me laughing for decades. Thanks for the memories, filthy light thief.
  • Fairmettle: TFA notes that the machine was installed November 17, and prior to this beamed up wrench, they'd been working through 21 test designs.
  • I don't know. If I remember, didn't the Junior Straussian League keep yelling for results, and the results they wanted? And yeah, I've refused to see Zero Dark Thirty. It's worse that it's good.
  • Banana, ejaculating dildo...eh, what's the difference?
  • So we've gotten to the under-bus tossing stage with all this as the political cockroaches scatter in the light. Well, at least the process is predictable. Loathsome, but predictable.
  • I'm pretty sure it means that the rest all agree that the appeal on the merits (whether or not Florida's constitutional ban on ssm violates the us constitution) has no chance of upholding the ban. Otherwise they'd do a stay to avoid situations where people can get married and then later can't. Wittgenstein, that's roughly how I read it, except that one county (where the lawsuit was filed) would be required to issue licences. It feels weird but I don't know Florida procedural stuff and am willing to trust the law firm mentioned.
  • > The Milgram experiments demonstrated that The Milgram experiments demonstrated that you can fast-talk people into doing bad things as long as they don't have much chance to think about it - and little else. Milgram varied his conditions in various iterations of his experiment, but that one condition was not changed - that the victim, er, subject of the experiment never got to leave the room. My guess is that if Milgram had set up the experiment and then let the subjects leave for lunch, 90% of them would not come back; and if he'd let them go home for the night, nearly 100% of them wouldn't have come back. The Miligram experiment is not great science - more Candid Camera than psychology - and if you read the original paper all its flaws are right there. We do in fact have some hard data about real-world situations like guards at concentration camps and the results say better things about humans. For example, even though guards at Nazi death camps were picked for the job, a large portion of them requested transfers almost immediately, and the Nazis had a policy of granting those transfers without any blemish on the soldiers' records - showing they knew that a sizeable portion of even dedicated Nazis would be unable to perform this job. So when someone like this person of filth commits atrocities, you cannot use the limited and flawed Milgram experiments to somehow absolve her of one jot or tittle of the responsibility for her crimes. Perhaps a fast talking guy in a white coat can make you do something bad, once, if you don't have a chance to think about it, but if you continue to perform atrocities over days, weeks and months, the moral responsibility is entirely yours.

  • What he said.
  • I am traveling to Iran next year, when I turn 60. Mrs. Breadbox and I visited Cuba in February for her 60th. Given the short time on this planet, I relish seeing countries that cause so much consternation for the good old USA and our skewed Christian ideals. As it turns out, everyday inhabitants of the enemy of our State are good people. To me, travel is about learning. To wallow up to a pool bar in Cancun, or eat and gamble on a floating hotel is such a waste of my time. I will never forget the recent conversation with a lovely representative while discussing the sale of our ill advised time share in Aruba. She reminded me, "At your resort, everyone speaks English, and it's just like you never left America." Sigh.
  • Extraordinary post. "They're little shells". Reminds me of a great teacher I had when it came a teaching methodology.
  • Finney, Michael Caine, George C. Scott, Scooge McDuck. Don't forget Patrick Stewart!
  • This looks like a fantastic read. Thanks!
  • This doesn't read to me like a "one bad apple" story. the reports are pretty damning about the institutional system and politics. And the "throwing a woman under a bus" story doesn't really work either, because she's not the odd one out as a female: "As recently as 20 years ago, there were no women in the upper ranks of the CIA. Now three of the top four officers and five of the top eight are women, and when Director Brennan's out of the country, Avril Haines runs the show. An agency that once oozed machismo is now almost half female, and has become the home of "the Sisterhood," the powerful band of women who tracked bin Laden to his hideout."
  • I turned this off TCM when Scrooge's "I Hate People" number came on. Really? Why would you turn it off then? You know the Dickens story, right? It's not like you could expect Scrooge to be a loveable curmudgeon in the beginning.
  • Who here remembers Janis Karpinski?
  • (The Marty Feldman bits are my favorite - pretty much made for the role.)
  • Not 30 minutes ago my daughter said something about Ovaltine, which caused several jokes as we were driving along. It's a touchstone in our household. As an aside, after the last time we saw it (the day before Halloween this year in an actual theater packed with people), we realized that Inspector Kemp sounded just like Otto from the later seasons of Malcolm in the Middle. I don't know how I never realized it, but yeah, that's Kenneth Mars. So both he and Cloris Leachman had roles in that show.
  • One of my favorite movies of all time. It's usually hard to find it on streaming services but it's on HBO GO through January, if you have that.
  • I've seen lots and lots of family photos from before and after the revolution and it makes me sad how incredibly chic and modern people used to look and how that changed overnight. Suddenly no cocktail dresses, no clean-shaven men in nice suites, no nightclubs ... I think I've linked to Tehran Disco before.

If the people and/or legislatures of those states hadn't passed anti-SSM laws and amendments, SSM proponents in those states would face the challenge of arguing that the 14th Amendment actively requires SSM even though the relevant statutes don't mention it. Instead, all they have to show is that the anti-SSM law is an unconstitutional exercise of animus against homosexuals. So... thanks, bigots!
  • I saw this in the theater when I was a kid and it's been the go to Christmas Carol for the Holidays since then. I like the Alastair Sim version but it doesn't have the over-the-top trip to Hell that this version has. Thanks for the post. I'll need to get out the video and have a watch!
  • .. you can't put "the system" in jail, only individuals. Why are all the torturers always women? You put "the system" in jail one individual at a time. Why are all the tortures (that are outed) always women*? FTFY *Always women, or some little peon that the shit rolled downhill on. The boys giving the orders--they're gold.
  • There's important shit in everyone's lives, going back through our tens of thousands of years of individual experience. I am honored to have lived in a time when the important shit in my life includes this movie, and as I've suggested before, "Civilization peaked with the release of Blazing Saddles, and it's been all downhill from there."
  • the bricabrac: Brooks on that: "'Young Frankenstein,'" he said, is "by far the best movie I ever made. Not the funniest — 'Blazing Saddles' was the funniest, and hot on its heels would be 'The Producers.' But as a writer-director, it is by far my finest."
  • what is the big deal? The fact that it's the first time. An object has been created off-planet by uploading data to a machine we placed there. Sure, the technology to do so has existed in principle for a few years, but now it's actually something that our civilization has done. It's a genuine milestone. And it is cool. It also proves that we're halfway to Von Neumann machines and we'll have self-constructing habitats all over the inner solar system in about a week. Okay, that second part isn't quite true. But it ought to be.
  • >Rational, sane, brave, balanced human beings, don't do what the torturers did, with any impetus. Actually otherwise normal people can be, on the whole, reliably coerced into immoral behavior in the right environment. The Milgram experiments demonstrated that - 65 percent administered the final fatal shock. I think its important to remember that 'we' have no special immunity to evil.
  • Romer v Evans was in 1996. Lawrence v Texas was in 2003. It's time. This makes me a bit weepy.
  • Amazon's next delivery tech
  • Exactly what I was thinking, phooky. Being able to recycle materials from products that are no longer needed would really mitigate the raw materials problem that notyou identifies. Lots of hand tools, for instance, are really specialized and may be totally redundant except for that one time when they are absolutely essential. Bringing stuff like that into space is obviously a problem. Heck, it's a problem here on Earth! I have several tools that were bought, used once, and are now just clutter, and I can't even count the number of projects I've abandoned because I didn't have some weird thing that I didn't feel like spending $25 on when I knew I'd never need it again. If I could print out that odd-size socket or nonstandard screwdriver and then melt/grind it down for feedstock afterward, it'd be great. It wouldn't even matter if its durability was poor—as long as it could get through the job it had been made for, it would be durable enough. A system like that would probably be really useful on the ISS, and could potentially reduce a lot of waste and inefficiency here on the ground as well. And perhaps they could also deal with the inevitable need to send some new feedstocks up (no recycling system is 100% efficient) by incorporating them into the packaging materials for other components and supplies being shipped to the ISS. This is really neat, and looks like the first glimmers of actual, honest-to-God on-demand printing of consumer objects. In fact, "consumer" might be a misnomer, as if this becomes commonplace it involve a lot less consumption as it is known today.
  • do you really know what being "flayed alive" means? (The skin is torn from the face and head and the prisoner is disemboweled while still alive.)

  • Especially when it is using this to tell people to "forget global warming". That headline is not a rhetorical device, it's the point of the article. This can't be stressed enough, IMO. Sneakily phrasing the real viewpoint as a seemingly tossed off joke or implicit assumption rather than plainly stating it is a technique I keep seeing in use by bad actors.

Cuba gives me some hope.
  • How is it that they have a 3-D printer on the ISS and yet they have never ever sent printing instructions previously? Are they using it for freeform work or do they have such a large onboard pattern library that it has never been necessary? According to the single link and short article, the printer was put together on Nov 17th, printed its first parts on the the 25th, so they're getting there, ok?
  • I useful reminder that there really wasn't ever a peaceful halcyon "good old days" in American history, we've been butchers and warmongers since day one. Sure, at some times we've been worse than others, but it has always been there, often hidden under a history we want to pretend didn't happen, that this nation was born in blood and has lived off of it ever since, and the life those of us who live here enjoy, comes at the expense of millions who died horribly so that we could do so.

  • I don't think it's clear that there's bus-throwing going on here. Bikowski's identity was leaked piecemeal after she did a hell of a lot of interviews with journalists. Using your own middle name and distinctive description is a pretty tenuous way of maintaining confidentiality. Bikowski is reported to be jealous of the credit for the successes she feels were enabled by her actions, and some of the press contact seems to result from a desire on her part (and that of some of her superiors?) to "set the record straight. While it's clear that in a more just world, we'd meet our responsibility under the Torture Convention and prosecute or extradite the architects of the torture program, I don't think that failing to do so gives the implementers and advocates of it a free pass. Even though it's hard to believe Bush, Cheny, and Yoo will ever see justice, that doesn't' mean that prosecuting those who directly ordered sodomizing, drowning, and other abuse of prisoners is unjust. We can't reach the monsters' head to cut it off. That doesn't mean that it's unfair of us to slash at it's fingers before they can crush more innocent people. God only knows they have plenty of blood on them to justify it.
  • Just in time for Epiphany!
  • sailors (during the daytime at least) would have found it very hard to navigate when out of sight of land. Not so difficult in the daytime as during a cloudy night with variable winds. But maritime navigation relied on the compass until quite recently, not just centuries ago. Radio navigation was invented sometime in the 1940's during the war I think, but it wasn't thoroughly ubiquitous until the 1980's. So I would say we're just barely beyond the period of maximum dependence on the magnetic field for navigation. Not so long ago it was hard enough even with a good compass; you never know precisely how much leeway the boat is making, or exactly how fast the current is going. When you came in sight of land or a lighthouse or something, you'd just hope you weren't too far off and could recognize your actual position from the charts. Or maybe I just wasn't very good at navigating, but I bet that if you can find data on the worldwide rate of shipwrecks per decade, it'll show a dramatic decrease from the 1960's on as it seems to do for the Great Lakes. Anyway, the point is, if geomagnetic troubles wipe out all the GPS satellites as well as making the compass useless, we could always go back to LORAN-C.

  • The Alistair Sim "Christmas Carol" is wonderful and I do remember seeing it colorized back when everything was being colorized if that counts. It dates from 1951. Probably the best version I know of (with the Muppets coming in second). There's always the Jim Carrey Christmas Carol (ewwww, shudder) and the Patrick Stewart one from a couple years back (which manages to miss most of the humor of the original). There's a 1984 one with George C Scott as Scrooge (made for tv) which follows the story pretty well and isn't awful.
  • Also the best part of the article is the bit where they explain that the first thing they used the 3D printer for was to print out a replacement part for the printer.

  • Ber: What would it take to overthrow the theocracy? Are they supported by the military? By the rural population? I can't understand how they have managed to stay in power so long in the face of such a young population. To your questions: Yes and yes. They are the military, more-or-less, and they are supported by the rural population. The Westernization of Iran under the Shah happened mostly among wealthy people in the cities, and was imposed with efficient brutality by SAVAK. The generation which doesn't remember SAVAK but does remember the brutality of Khomeini - the population that's partying in these pictures - is only now beginning to come into its own. One thing that's often forgotten about Iran is that it's currently the closest thing to a stable democracy among the Islamic countries of the Middle East. The range of candidates is limited, much like the range of candidates in early British and American elections was limited, but there is a choice. The protests after Ahmadinejad's election in 2009 happened because voters had come to expect fair elections within that limited range of choices, and they felt they didn't get it. Iranian/Persian culture and economy is rich enough and complex enough that I wouldn't be surprised to see it evolve into a full democracy within a few decades, if we don't bomb it to smithereens first. The Council of Guardians - the theocratic core of the Iranian regime - could easily drift into irrelevance after a few populist elections, the same way that the British crown and Japanese emperors did. Or so I like to think.
  • "The best lack all conviction, while he worst/Are full of passionate intensity." Yeah. Things have changed so much since the "60s". Or was it the "70s"?

  • The population of Iran is very young, a few years back, 70% were under 30. We need to get off of Iran. When we do they will just be framed by their haters. My take on them is they just told us to F-off a few years back, in no uncertain terms, and went about their business. I love the US, but not everyone has to function as a vassal state. I wince at theocracy, oh my God it is the antedeluvian author of all things evil, but following right behind is the energy industry, and the surveillance industry facillitating every means of theft, from tangibles, to intangibles minor items like, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Those Iranis look pretty alive and happy in their private and public moments.

  • A former co-worker of mine had some amazing stories about being a Persian in an Iranian country. That's how most of the Iranian ex-pats I've met think of themselves: They are Persian, connected to 2500 years of history and culture and empire, most of it pre-Islam. They are not Iranian. All of the clamping down, the religious ridiculousness, that's Iranian. Secret parties late into the night, art and beauty, illicit goods, being free to say what you want, that's Persian. In his case, he was sentenced to death for distributing pornography. He made it out with some timely bribes to prison guards and masterful bluffing.
  • I think what we're saying--or, at least, what I'm saying--is the exact opposite. Prosecuting her (which should, don't get me wrong, absolutely happen--ideally at a War Crimes tribunal) is what will give the architects a free pass. She's going to be the scapegoat.

But then, I encountered The Shady Side of America when I was just a young teen...although it spans a large period of time (and isn't a large book to begin with) and therefore must be brief, it was a great overview of un-whitewashed American history (up to just before the Kennedy years, anyway). It's well-written, engaging, and a quick read. Definitely worth looking it up.
  • Stoner noir certainly replaces the unflappable, sardonic hero of the hardboiled detective novel with a type of fool– the pothead being an ideal modern archetype of the fool, a figure whose fraught relationship with the hardships and nuisances of everyday life we can all identity with to some extent. The Dude, as the Stranger observes, takes it easy for all us sinners – all us perhaps greater fools who are guilty of the sin of actually trying to stay up on the bucking bronco of life, rather than just kicking back and hoping its severer mood swings will just pass us by.

  • Is local power generation a euphemism for wind and solar, leotrotsky? We should not depend upon highly experimental distributed tiny nuclear reactor technologies. And local power generation with fossil fuels is disastrous for the environment, global warming, etc. Wind and solar are by far our best sources of energy, but they do require either batteries or a smart grid. Batteries have their own environmental challenges. And a smart grid is not exactly avoiding the power lines. In fact, we'll need far more long power distribution lines if we want to address global warming : World's first road-powered electric vehicle network switches on in South Korea Wind and solar are more resilient int the sense that if the long wires blow up a base station or two, some local power generation capacity remains.
  • Great photos, but that's a rather sleazy site with badly translated captions; I recommend the much wider selection here. As for the politics, clawsoon is on the money. It should not be forgotten that there is a higher percentage of women in the Majles than in the US Congress, and 60 percent of university students are women. Things are going to change, even if slower than one might like and in directions that will not necessarily bring joy to the heart of the progressive Westerner. It's a different country with different traditions. I can only urge people to read Iranian literature (like Jamalzadeh's wonderful Isfahan Is Half the World: Memories of a Persian Boyhood) and watch Iranian cinema, especially the glorious masterpieces of the '90s (Abbas Kiarostami! Jafar Panahi! Majid Majidi! Darius Mehrjui! Mohsen Makhmalbaf! at least as many great directors as the French New Wave boasted), and try not to judge an entire country of diverse people by a few news stories.
  • Zero Dark Thirty is really turning out to fit the fascist propaganda mold perfectly. lol At this point, any CIA officers doing jail time for torture improves our chances for institutional reform, well the C.I.A. will get off scot free after illegal hacking the Senate.

Imagine if the torture case eventually make the foreign press eager to out C.I.A. agents, ultimately making it impossible for them to operate effectively.
  • The Iranian woman smoking from a hookah, may for all we know support public executions and the nuclear program. I actually kind of get the point you're trying to make, but I don't think it really relates to the point of looking at this sort of material. Iran is portrayed as uniquely oppressive and fundamentalist as a propaganda technique. Its people are dehumanised in our accustomed portrayals of them. And it is ridiculous that this happens. Iran simply is not that exceptional, except in being the "baddy" in a particular Western narrative. Try being a woman or gay in Saudi Arabia, for example. I have a friend who was publically flogged before being deported from SA to Lebanon in fucking chains. None of which is to say that the Iranian regime is anything but an oppressive despotism, simply that it is useful to get some perspective on things. People are people all over the world. They mostly want to be left alone to get on with life and look after their kids. They are not defined by the political narrative which seems most important to me or you. Maybe the reason that woman smoking shisha isn't out overthrowing the regime is that it's too much trouble for the likely benefit. Looking at the effects of regime change in Iraq and Libya as examples, can you really blame her?
  • I'm so glad I never got minotaurs confused with one eyed monsters all of my life.

  • I think that somewhere along the way people started skipping a step in thinking about how Earth's magnetic field affects radiation and life here. Because really, most of the nastiest radiation from space that can harm living things doesn't care much about our magnetic field: a lot of cosmic radiation is in the form of gamma rays or uncharged neutrons that don't respond to magnetic fields, while those cosmic rays that do respond are "deflected" on curved paths that just change which incoming directions end up hitting the Earth, still almost as many particles are slamming into the upper atmosphere and releasing a shower of secondary radiation, some of which makes it to the ground and is why we build our sensitive particle detectors in mines or under the ice in Antarctica, or suspended on the bottom of the Mediterranean (if that one gets built). Meanwhile a lot of the harmful radiation from the sun is x-rays or ultraviolet light, completely unaffected by the magnetic field but partially blocked by the atmosphere. What's mostly deflected by our magnetic field is the solar wind, that thin, high-speed plasma emitted from the sun. It's dangerous radiation, and it is deflected by the magnetic field... but while some of it is deflected away, other of it deflected into the Van Allen belts where they bounce back and forth for quite a while, radiating away some of their energy as radio waves before eventually, usually, coming in as concentrated beams aimed at Norway or wherever and making pretty northern lights (also southern). Notice yet again that it's the atmosphere doing the radiation-blocking, keeping those northern lights up high and beautiful rather than down at the surface giving us cancer. That's the real benefit, the real reason why astrobiologists talk about magnetic fields being a prerequisite for a planet to support life: not because it blocks the deadly radiation, but because it blunts the energy of the solar wind before it strikes the atmosphere. Without it, the solar wind would have stripped away Earth's atmosphere long ago. And it's that atmosphere that does most of the radiation-blocking. The electric grid and compasses and other tech might have problems with a weaker magnetic field, but we living organisms won't notice a change in the radiation one bit.
  • I'm just glad Nashville has upheld the freedom for dogs to marry dogs.
  • I attended on the first day of release, in Westwood, CA. It was electric in that theater, and the loudest cheer, in the opening credits, was for Mel Brooks as director.
  • The Made In Space folks wrote up a summary at Medium, which includes this picture of some of the pieces that have been printed. I'm still a bit unclear on the assembly process and how many of the "sequence of 21 prints that together make up the first tools and objects ever manufactured off the surface of the Earth" refers to parts of the actual wrench (some of the pieces in that pic don't seem wrench-related at all), but I think it's clear there was some assembly required to create the wrench in question.
  • >>Banana, ejaculating dildo...eh, what's the difference? Man, I ain't sending you to the supermaket.
  • Maybe quite a few people in Iran are actually ok with women in burqas, public executions, demonstrations with burning flags and the nuclear program? Maybe you should learn the first thing about a country before you start ignorantly criticising it: burqas are very uncommon in Iran . World's a complex place. That leaves public executions, demonstrations with burning flags and the nuclear program. Burqas were mentioned in the original post, that I was referring to: "20 years of news and photos from Iran have been fairly uniform: a woman in a burqa, public executions, demonstrations with burning flags and rumors of nuclear weapons. However, the reality of everyday life in this ancient country is more complex and diverse." Stories like this one, about a woman jailed for watching a volleyball game, are also a part of Iran today. The fact that a number of younger people has a "liberal" and maybe even "western" lifestyle behind closed doors in Iran, is not a guarantee for political change. Change took about 50 years in Spain and Portugal, about 70 years in the Soviet Union and has not yet happened in North Korea. Articles about how "liberal" younger Iranians/Persians really are behind closed doors, may not answer why the regime still is there. The Iranian woman smoking from a hookah, may for all we know support public executions and the nuclear program. Regarding "Maybe you should learn the first thing about a country before you start ignorantly criticising it": what's the difference between criticising a country or criticising a political system in countries like Iran, Russia, China, North Korea? Should Amnesty International stop criticising Iran for death penalties?

  • I went looking for this one today, and Amazon didn't have it and now I am sad. (Netflix's Christmas offerings are, of course, dreadful.) My kid doesn't really know the Christmas Carol story, and I don't think he'd respond well to Dickens as-is, so I was hoping to use this one to introduce him. I remember enjoying the Henry Winkler American Christmas Carol as a kid, and Amazon does have that one, but I'm afraid my kid memories are faulty. (I remain possibly the only person on Metafilter who really really dislikes the Muppet Christmas Carol. But I really really do. Other suggestions for versions welcome though. Preferably in color and made after 1950).
  • That's why they wanted those religious lunatics out of England in the first place. They got a nice taste under Cromwell and mainstream English religion has remained steadfastly moderate ever since.
  • The geodynamo comes from circulation of the molten core, not the solid iron core. Coriolis forces combined with MHD feedback effects create vortices that generate the magnetic field. When Earth's rotation changes, shear between the mantle and liquid core causes turbulence that disrupts the vortices until the new rotation propagates throughout the core. Then the vortices come back with a 50% chance of being oriented north or south. Pole reversals seem to occur about half as often as abrupt rotation changes. Rotation changes can occur for many reasons, not necessarily climate change.
  • Very cool.
  • "Woof.."
  • I feel out of the loop for not knowing about cryptomb. John Young doesn't endorse much, which makes me imagine he knows a bit about the site (and potentially its operators). I notice a couple of difference. John would never use gmail (as this site does for its contact information). Also, they re-used* cryptome.org's wonderful 'how-we-respond-to-threats' warning:

  • I'll be damned if Inherent Vice wasn't a painfully boring slog. It took me five times longer to finish than Gravity's Rainbow, and I only did it out of some perverse sense of obligation. I was the opposite. It took 8 tries to get thru Gravity's Rainbow (I've read it again since), but IV I read through in 3 days, then read it again back-to-back. I mean ... ZOMES! Really, it's a pretty quick read. Compared to Vineland, it's a breeze. It's my current go-to recommendation for anyone who's never read Pynchon. (Much better than Bleeding Edge.) Vineland is the right comparison--mostly comedic novel about the "end" of the counterculture and the rise of the authoritarian uber-state--but IV is much better, imo. So so good. I gotta read it again...
  • Scrooge
  • This was the first version of A Christmas Carol that I saw, so Finney will always be my Scrooge. Followed closely by Mr. Magoo and Rich Little's version. Now if someone can get me a copy of "Emmet Otter's Jug Band Christmas," my nostalgia trip will be complete.
  • They all need to be a möbius strip of bean feeding and defacating tube. Rational, sane, brave, balanced human beings, don't do what the torturers did, with any impetus. They did not miss the 9/11 boat, without it, the Bush Admin had no excuse to start the Iraq war. Their crime was to facilitate it by deliberate omission. The whole crux of the thing did not rest with one person, that is the BS. What is it going to take to bring this shipwreck of state back up to the light?

It is unclear how many plan to take that advice. In Kissimmee, Fla., near Orlando, Osceola County Clerk of the Courts Armando Ramirez said Thursday that if the stay was lifted, his courthouse would open at 12:01 a.m. on Jan. 6 to issue marriage licenses and possibly perform services. State judges in four South Florida counties have also declared the same-sex marriage ban unconstitutional, but those decisions are being appealed by Bondi as well, and no marriage licenses have been issued."

  • I'm having a hard time understanding the false dilemma between "terrible person does terrible things and should be punished" on one hand and "burn the CIA to the ground and salt the earth" on the other. She inarguably did horrible things, repeatedly, for years. Surely she deserves prosecution. This doesn't preclude razing Langley and building a giant iron wall around the site. I can understand there being a fear that all the sins of the CIA will be put on her head, though, if Iran-Contra is any lesson to go by. Worse still, when she re-emerges a couple years later to host some show on Fox.
  • Sorry to double up, but just remembered "My grandfather's work was doo-doo!" Still makes me laugh til I'm weak.
  • "Thank You Very Much" is such a great use of the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come section. Instead of everything being doom and gloom, Scrooge thinks that they all loved him and he never knew it as they tap-dance on his coffin. It's dramatic irony at it's most fun. Also, I never thought about it this way until this thread, but "I Hate People" is an "I want" song.
  • I watched it late at night on-demand at my ex boyfriend's house while he passed out on me, stoned. Didn't want to wake him and we were comfortable on the sofa, so what the hell, I thought. (This exact sequence of events led to several regrettable movie watchings.) Sickening, sickening movie. I'd be unsurprised if CIA money financed it, it was that blatant as propaganda.
  • I'd be unsurprised if CIA money financed it, it was that blatant as propaganda. Man, I did *not* have the same reaction to it at all. I thought it drove home over and over again that whatever euphemisms people chose to describe our treatment of detainees, it was torture. (Alyssa Rosenberg's take on the film seems right to me.)

  • Dreaming of Babylon is, for lack of a better word, hilarious, but it's also masterful. The concept is comedy, the execution, the way the noir story gets pushed to the sidelines and kind of bleeds through and is never explained is postmodern virtuosity.

  • Director Mel Brooks spent a lot of money on white handkerchiefs while making his 1974 tour de farce, Young Frankenstein. "I gave everybody in the crew a white handkerchief," said the 88-year-old comedy legend during a recent phone interview. "I said, 'When you feel like laughing, put this in your mouth.' Every once in a while, I'd turn around and see a sea of white handkerchiefs, and I said, 'I got a hit.'"

    Young Frankenstein was more than a hit. It is a comic masterpiece.
    An interview with Mel Brooks on the 40th anniversary of Young Frankenstein, with an overview of the events that lead to what Mel Brooks calls 'by far the best movie I ever made.'

    Depending on who's telling the story, Gene Wilder was either in his cowboy outfit on the set of Blazing Saddles or it was after his part in Woody Allen's Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Sex (possibly NSFW, if discussions of intercourse with sheep is frowned upon - and the scene is overlaid with AC/DC's "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap"), when Wilder was sitting in a little place in West Hampton Beach, Long Island --
    I took a yellow legal pad and a blue felt pen and I wrote "Young Frankenstein" on top. And then for two pages, I thought what could happen to me if I suddenly found out that I was an heir to both Beaufort von Frankenstein's whole estate in Transylvania. And I finished the two pages. I called Mel. I told him, well, I says, cute. Cute. That's all I said. And then later on that summer, Mike Medavoy, who was my agent at the time, is that anything for you and Peter Boyle and Marty Feldman? I said, what made you think of that combination? He says, because I now handle you and Peter and Marty. I said, well, what a wonderful artistic basis. As it happened, I think I do. Send it to me. I said, no. Give me another day or two. And I wrote two more pages. The Transylvania station -- almost verbatim the way it is. And then put an ending on it.
    Wilder was also the one behind of 'Putting on the Ritz', which Mel Brooks fought at first, then he realized Wilder's genius in the inclusion of that scene. Brooks and Wilder got their ensemble cast without too much trouble. After he gained some renown for The Marty Feldman Comedy Machine (more info), Marty turned down a five-year television contract in favor of a film to be shot in black and white. Peter Boyle recalled being happy to play "the loving, tender, sweet-heart of a guy," a character who is "just misunderstood", and what it was like to work with Mel Brooks. Cloris Leachman recalled her favorite scene ("Would the doctor care for a brandy before retiring?"), and Brooks spoke highly of Madeline Kahn. "I know how crazy I can go, and she's gonna nail it." Add to the ensemble cast an early role for Teri Garr, Kenneth Mars with a monocle over an eye patch ("that's not too much"), and a cameo by Gene Hackmann, and the cast was set. Roger Ebert gave the film four stars in 1974, writing highly of Brooks' skills as a director.
    In his two best comedies, before this, "The Producers" and "Blazing Saddles," Brooks revealed a rare comic anarchy. His movies weren't just funny, they were aggressive and subversive, making us laugh even when we really should have been offended. (Explaining this process, Brooks once loftily declared, "My movies rise below vulgarity.") "Young Frankenstein" is as funny as we expect a Mel Brooks comedy to be, but it's more than that: It shows artistic growth and a more sure-handed control of the material by a director who once seemed willing to do literally anything for a laugh. It's more confident and less breathless.
    Ebert went on to compare Young Frankenstein with James Whale's Frankenstein (1931; full movie on Daily Motion) and Bride of Frankenstein (1935; Daily Motion), which Mel and crew captured well, as you can see in this collection of various Frankenstein movie stills (previously), in part due to the movie's use of the original 1930s Frankenstein equipment, made (and stored) by Kenneth Strickfaden. Three decades after the release of the movie, Mel Brooks returned to the story and turned Young Frankenstein into a musical, which you can watch, in its entirety, on YouTube (audience recording from OnStage Atlanta, 08/16/2013), and you can follow along with the libretto vocal book (Scribd). Mel said of the musical: "There's a lot of sexy innuendo. I don't know if Mary Shelley would be so happy.... There's a little in the movie. There's a lot in the musical. That's what musical comedy is." If you still haven't seen the film, or your memory his a bit hazy, you can enjoy the film edited down to 5 minutes, or you can skim through the first draft, transcribed as a .TXT file, or read through the third draft from Dec. 17, 1973 (PDF). Now that we have that out of the way, onto bonus material! Three segments from AMC's Backstory on the movie: making of Young Frankenstein, part 2 (with goofs and laughter) and part 3. You like bloopers? OK, here are 5 minutes of outtakes, with more laughter, and another 3 minutes of crack-ups! For something more serious, here are three cut scenes featuring Gene Wilder and Teri Garr on Archive.org. An encore: Mentalfloss provides 15 fun facts for the 40th anniversary; Neatorama rounds up more factoids and anecdotes; IMDb's trivia, goofs and quotes pages for the movie; the TV Tropes page for the movie; Giphy search for Young Frankenstein clips. And as a parting gift, five clips from Mel Brooks, Cloris Leachman, Teri Garr and producer Michael Gruskoff at the Academy's 40th Anniversary Screening of Young Frankenstein on September 10, 2014 at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater: Young Frankenstein: 40 years ago; Mel Brooks on working with Gene Wilder; memories from the set; working with Marty Feldman; and favorite scenes.
  • Mel Brooks has made more than a few great movies, but Young Frankenstein is obviously his best movie qua movie. Everyone involved should live forever. RIP Madeline Kahn.
  • The only valid version of Christmas Carol is the one that involves music and Muppets. It is a masterpiece.
  • Well, by turning it off ealy you missed the closing number "Now I've Changed Because the Ghosts Showed Me Things."

  • Khan I kick it?
  • Taakse jää (Finnish) Fun fact: Jää here is a conjugated form (3rd person singular present indicative, he says after looking the terminology up) of the verb jäädä (to stay), but also the nominative singular of jää (ice). And taakse means 'behind.' In case anybody wondered.
  • Her name is Alfreda Frances Bikowsky. I was just going to say that "A senior female CIA official who has testified before Congress and was one of the inspirations for the protagonist of Zero Dark Thirty" is not very much anonymity.
  • Its unfortunate headline aside, I don't read this as pinning all of the blame for the US's secret torture regime on one person, particularly when this short piece is put in the context of the rest of Jane Mayer's exceptional reporting on these issues. Obviously the whole national security and intelligence community, up to and including the White House, is complicit here. Torture doesn't become routinized without this kind of tacit systemic endorsement. But on the other side, you can't put "the system" in jail, only individuals. So stories like these are needed side-by-side with institutional analysis, so that figures like this agent can be identified, investigated, and prosecuted. When it comes to doling out responsibility, the systems viewpoint and the individual viewpoint don't exclude each other, which I take to be the moral of Mayer's last two sentences.
  • Today also happens to be the first anniversary of Kitchen v. Herbert, the Utah same-sex-marriage case that set this wave of court decisions in motion. A year ago it seemed so unlikely that we'd be in the position we are today, with federal judges practically tripping over themselves to rule against states' anti-ssm laws. What a great way to end 2014!
  • Interesting. This sounds like a good counterpart for Laures Martines' Furies, talking about the savagery of total warfare in the same era (1450-1700) in Europe itself.
  • Thanks, Obama.
  • I used to write for The Dartmouth! So cool to see them in this list.
  • Why would you turn it off then? You know the Dickens story, right? It's not like you could expect Scrooge to be a loveable curmudgeon in the beginning. Yeah but you can't just have your characters announce how they feel. That makes me feel angry! Scrooge literally saying the words "I hate people!" is just way too over-the-top "It's the 70s and we're experimenting with less formal and less subtle modes of expression in entertainment" for me.
  • We do in fact have some hard data about real-world situations like guards at concentration camps and the results say better things about humans. For example, even though guards at Nazi death camps were picked for the job, a large portion of them requested transfers almost immediately, and the Nazis had a policy of granting those transfers without any blemish on the soldiers' records - showing they knew that a sizeable portion of even dedicated Nazis would be unable to perform this job. That's certainly not what Christopher Browning found when he wrote Ordinary Men: of the 500 men in the battalion he studied, only 12 opted out of participation in the Holocaust. And they weren't specifically chosen for the job either.
  • Yes (for certain values of "educated").
  • I am always surprised when people talk about the "white washing" of American history. My entire K-12 education was spent in typical suburban public schools and we were always taught about the brutality and genocide. Are there really educated people out there that don't know this stuff?
  • These photos are really nice! My grandfather did epidemiological research on cancer in Iran in the 60s and 70s so my grandparents visited there fairly often. I have seen a whole bunch of photos from that time and what struck me when I first saw them as a teenager, being born in the 80s, was how things had that sixties and seventies look. So much looked very western. It's interesting to see how many western cultural norms survive as underground culture in Iran. Oh, and what's on the walls and ceiling in this picture of women smoking hookahs and purpose does it serve? Is it to capture any smoke?
  • A high profile lawsuit by McDonald's would be amazing publicity for this band.
  • Walk this way! I love how much it looks and especially sounds like a much older movie (my ask.mefi q on the topic)
  • The Road to Guantánamo is an altogether much more accurate picture, if anyone's looking to counter the propaganda of Zero Dark Thirty. I wasn't so sure back in '06, but now, well, the screenwriters could practically sue Diane Feinstein for plagiarism.
  • One of the joys of my family is my parents introduced us to Mel Brooks and Tom Lehrer when we were young. Indeed, we went to the drive in to see Star Wars, but it was full, so my parents took us to the other film - "Blazing Saddles."
  • They are related. Global warming affects the geodynamo through icecap melting that changes earth's moment of inertia by shifting mass toward the equator.
  • That was awesome.
  • How is it that they have a 3-D printer on the ISS and yet they have never ever sent printing instructions previously? Are they using it for freeform work or do they have such a large onboard pattern library that it has never been necessary?
  • Bill Murray's Frank Cross is the one true Ebeneezer Scrooge to rule them all.
  • Cryptocomb has been publishing a lot of information about CIA agents' identities. I'm assuming they're the background source for some of these articles we've been seeing in the press. My question is who runs Cryptocomb? The name and site recall Cryptome, John Young's excellent and venerable leaked-secrets site. But there's no specific reason to think Young is running Cryptocomb and he's generally not one to keep his activities secret. (FWIW, in 2012 Young endorsed Cryptocomb.) So if not Young, then who?
  • Madeline Kahn is everything I ever wanted to be when I grew up, and this movie is a treasure. Time for (another) rewatch!
  • What would it take to overthrow the theocracy? Are they supported by the military? By the rural population? I can't understand how they have managed to stay in power so long in the face of such a young population.
  • I'm also distressed by this simplistic "it's all one woman's fault!" story. You don't have to take that interpretation, you know. Think of her more as a door than a bucket. She could drop dime on a ton of people.
  • I am always surprised when people talk about the "white washing" of American history. My entire K-12 education was spent in typical suburban public schools and we were always taught about the brutality and genocide. Are there really educated people out there that don't know this stuff? Maybe your history teachers weren't big on textbooks, or good at teaching not just within the framework of the textbook teachers guide? Because the influence of the Texas Board of Education as a gatekeeper to keep controversial material or less patriotic interpretations of American History out of standard texts is pretty well documented.
  • in the really religious colonies the penalties for even the pettiest crimes are death, death, death, and shunning Is "shunning" like exile, or simply giving them the silent treatment and not trading or aiding them in any way? Because in a small community in a larger wilderness with inhabitants that are already pissed off at the interlopers, that sounds like it would pretty much be death. Also, I'd long since found out that the Pilgrims of Plymouth Rock had come to America not so much because they'd faced religious intolerance in England (what we'd been taught in school) but because the community in Leiden in the Netherlands, where they'd moved to, was too tolerant and their kids were in danger of being assimilated by the Dutch.
  • Slippery slope! Next the boa constrictors will be marrying the alligators! And the giant snails! Anarchy! Sodom and Gomorrah! Babylon!
  • That was a lot of fun. Love me some throat singing.
  • There's one thing I don't get. Is the reason that she and a few other CIA operatives willfully withheld information from the FBI pre-911 attacks that they wanted to control the situation themselves? If indeed (from Wikipedia) "Rossini further states that Bikowsky told congressional investigators in 2002 that she hand-delivered al-Mihdhar's visa information to FBI headquarters. This was later proven false by FBI log books" how is she still in any position of power? Were they playing at being super spies?
  • Wow. What a time to be alive. Amazing.
  • \o/
  • Does anyone happen to know much about the current state of the 3D-printing art in terms of material properties? It's been a few years since I was in a position to handle 3D-printed objects regularly. At that time the complexity and accuracy of the printed shapes was impressive, but parts were very fragile. How useful is this wrench likely to be?
  • If this had happened around a thousand years ago humanity's history would have been very different. Without compasses there may have been no Age of Sail, because sailors (during the daytime at least) would have found it very hard to navigate when out of sight of land.(*) (*) Yes, I know about the Polynesians and their impressive feats of compass-less navigation.
  • This movie is full of favorite moments but I literally fell out of my seat from laughing so hard during the seesaw scene with the monster and the little girl.
  • Ffractal looks legit
  • Congrats, Florida!
  • Don't forget the High Maintenance webseries. Each one is great, but I think the one that will get you hooked is the first I saw, Qasim. (The new season is pay per view, I think, but there's plenty -- about a full length movie -- in the first.)
  • 786,000 years ago. Yet clearly some humans made it through last time. Amish, I expect.

  • Another great book covering the early colonies is American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America. The idea that the 13 colonies were unanimous in their reasons for fighting for independence is a pretty nice lie that we tell ourselves. They were founded for very different reasons by different groups, and we're STILL dealing with the fallout from those original cultures.
  • Flippin' awesome. Love it.
  • This is why I come here. Thanks cthuljew and MetaFilter!
  • What's extra interesting is that since the 11th circuit essentially said "Meh, sounds good to us. No point in staying this pending appeal," we can assume they're likely to say the same thing to cases coming from Alabama or Georgia too!
  • That was excellent, but I admit I am a little disappointed that fractal in Welsh is apparently still fractal.
  • The best model might be a distributed network of wind and solar residential producers, who produce what they consume and store any excess in distributed but publicly subsidized (like public utilities) hydrogen battery banks for resale or use during non-peak production periods. We could use large scale renewable projects (wind farms, geothermal, hydrothermal, etc.) to provide some additional flexibility in capacity to offset yield gaps at the residential level.
  • This was the first movie I saw with just me and my older brother - no parent or adult. I guess I was about 8, and I was a-scared of it even though it's funny.
  • Welsh needs a few more syllables squeezed in by the sounds of things!
  • IMO, that is one of the best music videos of the 21st century so far. If we are still acknowledging music videos as a thing in the 21st century.
  • Turns out they would download a socket wrench.
  • "Pardon me boy, is that the Transylvania Choo-Choo?"
  • The original inhabitants were no slouches on the brutality front themselves, as a brisk turn around 1491, or War Before Civilization shows.
  • I'm skeptical about that last statement. Even it's true that global warming pumps more than a tiny amount of mass towards the equator I don't see what that has to do with earth's magnetic field.
  • The movie showed that the torture worked. That's a giant falsehood. In regards to that movie's own story it's false. But I agree with Rosenberg here: I'd like to see the more low-level but still repulsive use of this trope, the threat of torture in police interrogations, slink ignominiously away from popular culture, where it's become entirely normalized. Man, do I ever notice this a lot more. I was listening to an old Philip Marlowe radio show and he's punching some guy out to get his info. Think about how pervasive that trope is.

  • Loved this essay. Thanks.
  • This just beat out french as my favorite language to hear rap in that I don't understand. I had high expectations. Did not disappoint.
  • Young Frankenstein was one of the movies the adults in our lives made sure my siblings and I had seen when we were kids. I count that as quite a fine favor.
  • Aw, I was hoping they would end it with the birth notice gender correction. That would have been a nice note. And it's certainly one of the best, if not the best, corrections of the year.

  • My 9th or 10th great grandparents survived the Raid on Deerfield Connecticut in 1704. She was pregnant and gave birth on the forced march to Canada. Whenever I share family history I try to de-romanticize it. This is going to help!
  • The original inhabitants were no slouches on the brutality front themselves As the good professor himself notes, which is terribly old fashioned of him. I would note that the early Puritans were not sent, they left of their own accord. As to the criminals, we're more often in Jean Valjean territory than Hannibal Lecter. As to the country being nothing but butchers and war mongers, that's a pretty broad brush and something of a slap against, say, the good Quaker people of Pennsylvania, a healthy sector of early Americans. Indeed, there's an equally played down history of antiwar activism in this country that is rather hopeful. Our current war has plenty of opponents, LBJ won his election by portraying Goldwater as a menace (and found himself on the outs when he proved to be one himself), WWII had its share of Won't Get Fooled Again types, Wilson was elected on the He Kept Us Out of the War ticket, the Spanish-American war was unpopular with people we know and admire, the Peace Now party gave Lincoln a run for his money in '64, men like U.S. Grant and others viewed the Mexican War as a shameful land grab. Sure, opinions get changed, but it's not as if the people of this country are always spoiling for a fight. It generally takes a pretty serious kick in the pants, real or manufactured, to get us into one and once in one, we tend to get sick of it pretty quickly. Peace on earth, seasons greetings.
  • I'm fine with throwing her under a bus. Then fill the bus up with the rest of the Torture Inc. Gang and drive them all to The Hague. Sick bastards.
  • asterix: Good reference, thanks for the correction - I shan't make that claim again.
  • I suspect the idea behind Scalia and Thomas willing to grant the stay is that the 11th Circuit hasn't ruled, and a panel of the 6th has upheld a ban, which means we still may have a circuit split. It's notable that in this case, the dissent was recorded, all the other refuses of stays and writs had the court ruling without (listed) dissent. If either the 11th upholds a ban or an en banc 6th doesn't reverse their upheld ban, then it is a circuit split. That'll have to go to SCOTUS. The fact that 7 other justices basically said "it's over" and refused to grant the stay, including Roberts, means that it's likely that the bans will be overturned nationwide. It's clear that both Thomas and Scalia want to take up this case, but it seems that nobody else is willing. The grounds for a stay pending ruling or appeal are pretty strict. There has to be clear harm (in this case, I could see that -- being allowed to marry then having that marriage taken away) and there has to be a significant chance that the people requesting a stay will prevail in court. That 7-2 refusal is the clearest evidence I've seen that SCOTUS will overturn bans if they have to rule on the matter.
  • Some of Brooks' films don't hold up quite as well now as they did when I was young -- Spaceballs I'm looking at you! -- but Young Frankenstein is an all-time classic. Gene Wilder is just so amazing in this that it makes me so sad that he's had so little work over the last 25 years.
  • About twenty years ago, a friend of mine and I -- both drunk, both recently and spectacularly dumped by our respective girlfriends -- were trying to crash in a sweltering apartment on a truly miserable summer night, just everything was going wrong, and I found this on TV. My friend had never seen it, and immediately started railing about some cheesy bullshit movie that blah blah blah and then the "Puttin' on the Ritz" scene came on and dude just lost it. Miraculous properties!

  • The word for that is, of course, ymarysgrifoeddus-y-terfygaethraegyllys. Well, technically, it would be y-gerfy. Welsh has several mutations when forming sentences. The Welsh word for Cardiff, for example, Caerdydd (kay-ur deeth), is also pronounced Gaerdydd or Haerdydd, depending on what letter the word preceding it finishes on. Examples: Dwi'n dod o Gaerdydd - I'm from Cardiff. Dwi'n byw yn Haerdydd - I live in Cardiff. This is because everything in Welsh is said as one long sentence. When you're saying "o Gardydd", your tongue and lips are in a different arrangement to when you're saying "yn Haerdydd". It's easier to say "yn Haerdydd" than "yn Gaerdydd".
  • Oh, and what's on the walls and ceiling in this picture of women smoking hookahs and purpose does it serve? Is it to capture any smoke? I'm wondering too. Looks a bit like animal skins.
  • The album is Mish B3eed Mixtape Volume One. I think this is a working download link. I don't have time to verify it right now but there appear to be a bunch of sites hosting the album if you search for the artist and title. I don't speak Arabic so it might be a horrifically offensive album. It sounds good though. Non-American hip hop is just so fascinating.
  • Maybe quite a few people in Iran are actually ok with women in burqas, public executions, demonstrations with burning flags and the nuclear program? Maybe you should learn the first thing about a country before you start ignorantly criticising it: burqas are very uncommon in Iran . World's a complex place.
  • They're a smart bunch, and they've been thinking about this a hell of a lot longer than most of you have. True enough, but they've been thinking about it down here in the Slow Zone, whereas some of us who've only been thinking about it for a few seconds actually live in the High Beyond or Low Transcend, where a moment's thought can be the equivalent of the intellectual output of entire civilizations.
  • Blucher! (horses neigh in terror)
  • "'Young Frankenstein,'" he said, is "by far the best movie I ever made. Not the funniest — 'Blazing Saddles' was the funniest..." He's wrong. Young Frankenstein is funnier.
  • There are so many lines from this film that are quoted around our house, but "Right here? Now, Doctor!?" is the one that is probably the most frequent. Well, maybe that and "Abbie... something." Wait, wait, Hackman's melancholic, "I was going to make espresso..." Such a fantastic film. (And a great post, thanks!)
  • Hopefully this will cure all the vaccine-related autism cases.
  • Does anyone happen to know much about the current state of the 3D-printing art in terms of material properties? It's been a few years since I was in a position to handle 3D-printed objects regularly. At that time the complexity and accuracy of the printed shapes was impressive, but parts were very fragile. How useful is this wrench likely to be? The wrench on the space station is just plastic (as on preview, I see mr_roboto said). But in general the technology is getting pretty good - now starting to use 3D-printed parts in rockets themselves.

I'm also distressed by this simplistic "it's all one woman's fault!" story. The United States torture was a collective action performed by many Americans and justified up to and including the President. All Americans bear some moral responsibility and many Americans bear specific legal responsibility for the illegal actions they took.

  • "My next favorite film version of 'A Christmas Carol,' right after the Alastair Sim movie, is this one from 1970. Finney received the 1970 Golden Globe Award for best actor in musical or comedy. The film was also nominated for Academy Awards for art direction/ set decoration, costume designer, best song ('Thank You Very Much') and best song score/ adaptation. A musical retelling with memorable songs and dances, (the song 'December the 25th' is a favorite) and a lively cast, this film ranks high on my list of 'must watch' DVDs during the holiday season. Filmed in such a way as to suggest that the only light is ambient sources on the set, it adds a look to the production that is simultaneously realistic and dream-like." An affectionate look at director Ronald Neame's musical adaptation, Scrooge.

    More about the website; introductory page. Bonus! Trivia about Scrooge (verbatim from IMDb):
    • Richard Harris rejected the role of Scrooge. Rex Harrison agreed to play the part, but had to back out due to a commitment to a difficult play. (Harrison was also having an affair with Harris' then-wife, who he would later marry.) Albert Finney, who had been offered the role before Harrison but had initially rejected it, reconsidered once he read the script and asked for the role. (He was a business associate of Michael Medwin, the co-writer who played his nephew in the film.) (imdb)
    • Alec Guinness did not enjoy doing this movie. It required much more time than he expected, with the need of wires and a harness for his floating character. He suffered a double-hernia that required surgery to repair. (imdb)
    • Alec Guinness' big musical number was cut from the film, although the lead-in remains intact. It was called "Make the Most of This Life" and was restored when "Scrooge" was adapted into a stage musical with Jon Pertwee as Marley and Anthony Newley as Scrooge. (imdb)
    • This version differs from the book in that, here, Scrooge's fiancée, Isabel, is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fezziwig. In the book she is not related to them, and is called "Belle". (imdb)
    • Although the music was composed by Leslie Bricusse and nominated for two Academy Awards, Bricusse could not write music. He would dictate lyrics and melody to music supervisor Ian Fraser who would transcribe and arrange them for Scrooge's score. Bricusse did so on many other movies to much acclaim. (imdb)
    • Scrooge (played by then 34-year old Albert Finney) is actually younger than his nephew Fred (played by then 46-year old Michael Medwin). (imdb)

  • When there was that report a month or two ago about brains being stolen from a Texas university my wife immediately said, "Abby Normal".
  • I guess it's not technically stoner noir, but my favorite of this genre is Brautigan's novel Dreaming Of Babylon.
  • Six Iranians arrested for appearing in a video dancing... Neat photos, and I love looking at these mini-slices of real life, but I worry about these folks being recognized and thus vulnerable.
  • I hated Zero Dark Thirty on every level. It was a bad film, and a terrible propaganda. But now to discover that the featured hero of the film is the sole person they are throwing under the bus for all this is just ludicrous.
  • If you're coming from where you and I are coming from, that justification rings totally hollow--torture can't be justified. But I don't think that's how the movie was intended, nor how it was largely received; it was 24 in long form. I can see that argument, but then I come back to the facts that the supporters of torture a) refuse to describe it that way and b) do everything they can to obfuscate what our treatment of detainees was actually like. And I don't actually think the movie was intended to justify torture; I think Bigelow and Boal wanted to make as journalistic a film as they could, and erred by not considering the way the characters' attempts to justify their actions would be taken. (Basically, I think they were thinking "this is what the people who really did this said about it, and we've got an obligation to show that too".)
  • The sing-along version also renders "fractals" as "ffractalau", so it may be legit ...
  • My sisters and I enjoyed this movie on TV as a secret vice around Christmas, because the amateurish lyrics drove our dad crazy. It's still a fun atmospheric Christmas movie, and the tunes are catchy.
  • You won't believe what happened next!
  • I saw this movie in the theater, with my parents. I was 5 or 6. It was a little scary in spots, I'm not sure I'd let a 5 or 6 year old kid watch it now, but even I knew it was fucking hilarious. One of the formative films of my childhood. Mel Brooks is a national treasure.
  • I'm trilled with even just publishing names to limit agents future travel options outside the U.S. given our inability to punish them here. Because the CIA doesn't ever fake travel documents. Nope, nope, nope.
  • Do not discount the Mr. Magoo version of A Christmas Carol. Seriously.
  • There wolf genius. My wife's favourite movie, it gets quoted regularly, just yesterday was "hair, darling!". We saw the musical a few years ago and greatly recommend it.
  • Earth's Magnetic Field May Be About to Flip [summary] - "Earth's last magnetic reversal took place 786,000 years ago and happened very quickly, in less than 100 years -- roughly a human lifetime. The rapid flip, much faster than the thousands of years most geologists thought, comes as new measurements show the planet's magnetic field is weakening 10 times faster than normal and could drop to zero in a few thousand years."

  • Is "Khuleg Baatar" the name of the song, "Ethnic Zorigoo" the name of the primary artist/group, and "Tatar Zaya" the name of a guest artist? Yes, yes, and yes. Looks like Ethnic Zorigoo also cross over into euro/dance pop, while Tatar Zaya may be more strictly Mongolian rap.

  • Landsberg absolutely is trying to belittle Punk's attempts at fighting in the UFC. From the opening promo basically implying Punk might as well fight Justin Bieber because they are somehow equals to saying he wouldn't fight Nate Diaz for a million dollars. Clearly he doesn't respect Punk and he was baiting him the whole interview to get clicks online, and guess what, it worked. But Landsberg needs to quit acting like he's the good guy because Punk was way more respectful than I would've been and Landsberg comes off like a true asshole. And it's rude to drink coffee during a talk show interview? Do people not have something to drink on every single talk show? COME ON

  • I respect her passion, but she literally talks out of her ass and should take some of her own advice and shut the fuck up. She touches on cultural appropriation which indeed is correct, cultural appropriation is alive and well in todays society, however chastising Iggy Azalea for "Appropriating" African American culture rather than criticizing AFRICAN AMERICANS who demean our culture everyday and at an exponentially larger scale than Iggy will ever do is childish and misguided. Bobby Smurda talking about selling crack since the fifth grade (most likely to black consumers), and "I'm in love with the Coco" ringing throughout clubs with African American patrons and you mean to tell me your upset with Iggy for saying "Im so fancy"?? She crying and shit about Black Culture being snubbed for accolades such as the Grammy's when we no damn well these American institutionalized awards don't reflect nor cater to black culture. Why place so much concern on something that should have no little to no weight to black culture. The Fuck a grammy gone do? Only until we make our own accolades with no institutionalized cultural boundaries and view them as prestigious in comparison to awards like the Grammy's will we be able to realize that this shit is just plain stupid. God this girl is passionate but she's a loudmouth idiot. FRFR

If the sun didn’t rise and set, if the season’s didn’t come and go, and if things didn’t age and die; we wouldn’t know time. But Jesus is eternal.

You're filling her head with feminist/Taliban ideas on what women should wear to not demean themselves.

  • CM Punk is such a cool guy! He speaks his mind and he does not care whatever people love him or hate him. Everyone should be like him. Most people would say that he is a douchebag or an asshole but, to me, he should be taken by everybody as an example in life. He started out from ZERO following his dream which was being a wrestler. He became one and not just anybody, he overcame John Cena in merchandising sells. He became rich just with his talent and he never let anybody bully him. Even here he speaks the truth and treats people who hide behind a mask like garbage... Imagine a world with CM Punk as United States President! I would definetely vote the guy (if I were American of course...) :-D

She is definitely much needed in the music world. A breath of fresh air. She is deep on that real shit.
  • FREEDOM OF SPEECH DOESN'T INCLUDE VIOLENCE. PEOPLE ARE SAYING THIS IS BETWEEN SONY (A JAPANESE COMPANY) AND NORTH KOREA. BUT I'M CONFUSED BECAUSE THE FILM IS AMERICAN, WITH AMERICAN ACTORS SETH ROGEN AND JAMES FRANCO. THAT MUST MEAN THE U.S. STARTED IT, RIGHT? EITHER WAY, IF YOU DON'T APPROVE OF SOMETHING, HANDLE IT IN A MATURE WAY. BUT TO JOKE ABOUT SERIOUS ISSUES AND JOKINGLY THREATEN TO ASSASSINATE SOMEONE, AND THEN ATTEMPT TO PASS IT OFF AS "COMEDY" IS DISRESPECTFUL. NORTH KOREA IS NOT PERFECT, BUT NEITHER IS ANYONE ELSE. WE LEAD BY EXAMPLE. DON'T ADD FUEL TO THE FIRE. TREAT OTHERS AS YOU WANT TO BE TREATED. IF POSSIBLE, TRY TO LIVE PEACEFULLY WITH EACHOTHER. DON'T INSULT. LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR. LOVE YOUR ENEMIES. THESE ARE THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE BIBLE. I'M GLAD THE MOVIE WAS PULLED AND I HOPE IT'S NOT SHOWN. ACCORDING TO NEWS SOURCES LIKE CNN, THE CIA AND NSA SAID A MAJOR CYBER ATTACK IS UNDERWAY AND WE HAVE 13 MONTHS TO PREPARE FOR IT. I ACTUALLY HAD A PREMONITION/DREAM WHERE I SAW THE NUMBER 13 MONTHS AND HAD NO IDEA WHAT IT MEANT BUT SOMEHOW KNEW IT WAS IMPORTANT. I TRY TO REMEMBER ESSENTIAL DETAILS LIKE THIS IN MY DREAMS, LIKE NAMES, PEOPLE, NUMBERS, PLACES, ETC. I THINK GOD WAS TRYING TO TELL ME SOMETHING, BUT I'LL WAIT AND SEE UNTIL THAT TIME COMES. FOR NOW, I'M COUNTING DOWN THE MONTHS. ALSO, THE BIBLE PROPHESIES THE USE OF MODERN TECHNOLOGY IN END TIMES. FOR EXAMPLE, WHEN IT SAYS PEOPLE WILL RUN TO AND FRO, AND KNOWLEDGE WILL INCREASE (DANIEL12:4). I'M NOT TAKING SIDES, BUT THE U.S., JAPAN AND NORTH KOREA WILL EITHER SELF-DESTRUCT OR BE DESTROYED BY GOD'S JUDGEMENT IF THEY DON'T REPENT FOR THEIR SINS. I WILL PRAY FOR ALL THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD AND THEIR LEADERS. REPENT, FOR THE END IS NEAR AND THE FIRES OF HELL ARE HOT! MAY GOD SHOW YOU THE TRUTH THROUGH JESUS CHRIST! AMEN.

  • i would pound her pussy inside out
  • can't wait for this movie. clint eastwood is an awesome director, and bradley cooper has really grown as an actor the last few years. 
  • She has gotten classier & sexier over the years. When she first came out, she looked a hot mess with all the wild clothes. She might make a great wife. She does have cute feet though.
  • That time your drunk uncles picked up the mic at your BBQ.....oh and Nicki Minaj showed up too Witness a Cypher with Kenny Smith, Grant Hill, Ernie Johnson, Shaq & Nicki Minaj Nicki Minaj paid a visit to the set of Inside the NBA and the hosts put together a Cypher in her honor. Kenny Smith, Grant Hill and Shaq flexed their skills to varying degrees of success. Kenny, ever the competitor, actually came with some BARS (relatively speaking) and Shaq took it back to the 90′s with his Shaq Fu. Ms. Minaj did what she does best and kicked an a capella verse, battle-rap style. Even EJ got in on the action with a “drop the mic” moment. Check out the video to be thoroughly entertained. http://youtu.be/_BXiBT7Fuok
  • Thank you, President Obama.
  • Why are there so many fedoras that I recognize here...
  • Merry Christmas to everybody! I invite you to check out our video : Jingle Bell Rock
  • i went on it and the world wasnt there
  • Sorry to interrupt this youtube thread, but I just dropped a contact lens...nobody move...
  • This show is basically a shitty lesbian porno. Males FLOCK to see this. Lol sad. Wonder why it was suggested in my feed...
  • The Amphipod appeared to be playing dead. Maybe a good strategy where there is no light.
  • Nick Offerman Reads 'Twas the Night Before Christ…: http://youtu.be/i8KF6-VuIQk
  • Very interesting video thank you, but yes please...what is this orgasmic music I hear?
  • too bad i will never have a moment like this with m'ladies because they friendzone me and chase after douchebags like op, gg
  • Wow a proposal with no gay people in it.. This video should be flagged for going against the gay agenda. We want a mono society, not one with culture and tradition. Not one with religion as religious people a bad not the global elite who brag about human depopulation.
  • LOL Oh...Nick...you just being you... <3
  • But don't we all have this until we recieve the proper training for it? I feel like after rigorous training one can percieve simple sounds as melodies. Don't you agree? 
  • Oh right, ovens in other countries use celsius, don't they. That's about 350 degrees fahrenheit for anyone who's wondering.
  • Stop at 0;23 and look at her eye closely
  • Conclusion: Schools kills children by giving them diabetes and slowing down their brain Why? You sit down, diabetes in future You stand up, teacher ask you why, no reason. You go back to sitting You lie down, teacher asks you to sit properly, you go back to sitting You go toilet, you sit on the toilet , still no difference, unless you're peeing (male has lesser chance of diabetes... Yay)
  • Yes ofcourse lets justify the killing of a child by making him hold a grenade. I'm sure they killed even those who didn't hold one. Also, Iraqis were just trying to defend themselves against Americans who had no right to be in their country. 
  • Misty from Pokemon and that girl from the Pokemon movie who plays the conch shell thing. And that girl from yugioh. Disney wise? Rapunzel. Lol. 
  • So 141 kids die in Pakistan and its strongly condemned but an attack on a movie must have something done about it. 
  • i think im beat deaf...just not tone deaf...
  • نشستن به مدت طولانی به معنای واقعی کلمه کشنده است. نیم ساعت و یک ساعت ورزش در روز هم علاجش نیست. اگر کار شما رو مجبور می کنه بخش بزرگی از اوقاتتون رو نشسته بگذرونین، ساعت بگذارین و سر هر یک ساعت بلند شین پنج الی ده دقیقه راه برین. تلفن ها و پیامک ها رو ایستاده بزنین و جواب بدین و خلاصه از هر فرصتی برای ایستادن، راه رفتن یا دراز کشیدن استفاده کنین. بدترین حالت برای سلامتی ما نشستنه. 
  • North Korea doesn't understand comedy so they'll probably hack them 
  • 3 2 twenny wan! le meme xD
  • Show the movie, release it on dvd, leak it, whatever you have to do. Show it. Worst case scenario the Korean government launches a hacking attack that displays to the world what executives think, or they explode a movie theatre, in which case that would be a declaration of war. We would then (If Obama has the balls) wipe their country from the face of the planet.
  • I cannot tell if this animation is more "offensive" than The Interview. /sarcasm
  • I lay in bed all day and watch anime am I going to die? 
  • The problem is that you have to sit in our society. May it be at work or in school, you are forced to sit more than 6 hours a day.
  • America is a corporation, not a country.Has been for a looong time,it belongs to China mostly,but other countries own stock in it also.You all need to realize this.Remember "red dawn"? North Korea made the u.s. change the the invading country to China.I personally don't think n.k is behind the hacking, but I could be wrong.If you ask me,its a inside job by someone associated with the production studio,how else could soooo much information be accessed? Pay rolls,private emails,actors private phone numbers?
  • Does anyone else find it ironic that one guy (Punk) can bring more media attention to a company, by quitting, then they've been able to generate for themselves in fifteen years? Then people wonder why Dana is willing to take the risk of bringing him into the UFC?

  • This album is something nice, something very deep and interesting, this song is very cool, I'm a huge fan of Madonna, thank you for this gift! Thank you for your work, for your songs, for your tour, your passions. You are my Queen forever, you are changed me and my LIFE is different now because, you are the one very BRAVE and SMART woman! I love you so MUCH, always and forever Madonna, I can't wait for this album, I love your voice in the ballads, so much pain, love, freedom, sadness, happiness. Devil Pray & Ghosttown is my favorites now, very emotional and so beautiful songs! GO HARD OR GO HOME. ♥
  • This Michael Landsberg guy is a tool. It really does not speak well for people who watch his program.
  • Amazing video! I hope commercial spacefaring becomes a reality during my lifetime Thank you for sharing! I was thinking of the white/red fire. Is that because of the camera sensor is beeing oversaturated with light? Or is it the actual colour of the plasma burning around the Orion. And also, Why do the main parachutes have different marknings? The wires/ropes have different colors. Shouldn't that suffice to tell them apart? Finally: Credits for the music?
  • Yeah cause white people can't possibly win an award over a black person right? If a black person won an award for a country song they wrote everybody would be all "Ooooh progress! Yaaaay good for them, eff you white people!" and yet because a white woman raps and wins awards for it suddenly she's in the wrong? Grow up people. Also why is she so upset about Bill Cosby being exposed? He very likely raped a bunch of women but because he's black she's upset that he's being called out for it?
  • THIS IS THE BEST THING OMG
  • Oh, God. All the COMMENTS.
  • Finally! something to describe some of my music students!!
  • wow Landsberg REALLY comes across as an ass in this interview
  • Dear Stampy (Joshua), I cant Find your house. They have replaced it with a castle. I play on xbox 360.

  • I need to read this book. I also want to see this movie. Damn this looks good.
  • that ladle is round, you calculate roundness with pi, pi starts with 3... Half life 3 confirmed. 
  • Seth rogan is not that fat lol 
  • Madonna if there is a small chance you are reading this, please change the final illuminati version to demo version, new version is nowhere near as good as the demo Thanks 
  • 5 days until christmas, I still haven't bought a single thing. 
  • What a fucking dick... he was poking at Punk from the first second of the interview... I love that Punk called him out and didn't give him the reaction that he was trolling for... I would love to see this Landsberg bitch get skulldrugged... this type of shit won't make anyone tune into your show... in fact it's doing the opposite
  • Mmmm
  • Haha +Marlene Mendez 
  • Reading these comments assures me that people have lost their common sense. Nobody sits for 6+ hours straight (continuously), not even in school. After an hour you get your ass up and go to a different class. And the sleep argument is utterly ridiculous. Sleep is different than sitting.
  • Not hating, but is this guy's target audience the ages of 8-13 year olds?
  • Nutella is not chocolate , you know..but good recipe tho
  • hahah omg the look on his face like "human why you let him do this"

  • Another brilliant idea - thanks Dave! I suppose the different flavour possibilities are endless- I might try a savoury one and spread it with tomato purée and sprinkle it with grated cheese, like a pizza - yum! 
  • Ye of course let's make another propaganda movie because americans are heroes killing all those terrorist but just only few of u can see that real problem are americans killing innocence people and defending oil cause politicans said so...."but of course we need more brain fucked soldiers" ....
  • When is this on tv in the uk cus I want to watch the entire show not just snippets :) Thanks

  • Sony Pictures: Chicken shit.
  • Well... I guess I'm beat deaf.
  • Mine was Jafar from Aladdin. The crab from Little Mermaid wasn't so bad either.
  • The president should have encouraged Americans to go to the Interview. Movie theaters could have charged extra for increased security - I would have paid $25.00 or more - and in Texas the audience would have brought their own security too. But Sony, the theater owners AND Obama wet their beds. How weak and pathetic. There is no leadership and no love of freedom in this country, especially in the White House. We just lay down and do what we are told. 
  • you are chef 
  • Скоро Sony пригласит вас в новый мир красочных оттенков и ярких деталей. Уже совсем скоро!
  • But I sit a lot and I'm still underweight and this stuff doesnt really affect me

  • The German Youtuber 'Daaruum' made this a few months ago... Anyway..love the idea of it. It's delicious :)
  • Fake, if you look closely at 0:16, you'll see that it was water the whole time, not soup.
  • Blowing my mind, we can go underwater as deep as some of the tallest mountains on earth and fkin find NEW SPECIES. And there are still people out there that think we are alone in the universe with crazy giant alien looking bugs right here on earth.
  • UH OH, It has begun!! Fallon has started stealing bits from Conan...

  • That mystery video / promo thing was lame as fuck.
  • anyone here had a crush on urusei yatsura?
  • This was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. But seriously? No music credit for that piece? Someone deserves a shout-out, even if it is just an Eno or Vangelis track I don't recognize. And more-so if it's a lesser-known artist who could use the recognition.
  • how to make the perfect nutella recipe: 1 buy Nutella 2 buy a spoon(very important!) 3 open nutella and eat with the spoon. repeat until diabetes

  • I'm new to stampys channel but why does he laugh like a mentally challenged 3 year having a asthma attack?
  • I don't wanna be on the road when nicki is driving. Her ass don't be paying attention. 
  • Madonna has lost all her originality, this is why her record sales decline. MDNA sold 2 million copies worldwide according to Wikipedia. Adele's last album sold 30 million worldwide. Quite a difference, heh? 
  • What keeps the three red and white main parachutes from getting tangled up? They seem to bounce off each other without collapsing into a deflated bag.
  • Uzo had the best singing voice.

  • Oh, that's Cheese Sandwich. I had to come back to make sure, at first I didn't recognize him.

  • Us it only for xbox
  • Will you upload videos of other tricks Kibo has learned? He's so cute!
  • Why people saying Nicki can't rap? Them was some good punchlines to be a off the top of your head freestyle. The rest of the NBA players little things were practiced, you could tell. "Give 0 f's they got no chill" is a good punchline. And plus this was a joke, if she was to really start going in in a joking type environment it would've just mad it awkward.

Of course I still don't understand why reddit is upvoting these videos even though mine are much better, must be autism or something. - Eric Hoogstoel Jonas, level 419 star wars dressmaker on facebook, Redditor.

  • Wonder what our world would look like if Obama was our President instead of Bush the same or better, i have to wonder. It doesn't even seem fair to his Presidency that he has to deal with the Aftermath i can only imagine it being a huge weight/burden on his shoulder. That's why i respect Obama the willingness to take on Adversity, I feel his promise of change has been kept or somewhat enforced. In my opinion at least, so here's a Big Ty and a wonderful holiday wishes greeting★

  • Who even is Eddie Redmayne? I'm not trying to be rude or anything, I've just never heard of him...
  • I'm not sure how I feel about this... I know Feminists all over the place would be mad about this because what Leia's wearing objectifies women and the girl thinks it's ok, but at the same time, can't a woman wear whatever she wants according to Feminists? Wouldn't they be mad because the father is trying to tell the daughter was is right and wrong to wear, but at the same time is teaching her about objectification of women? Of course, I'm not talking about the video, I'm confident it doesn't have a bias influenced by Feminist ideologies, I'm just thinking about the reactions of those coming from uber-SJW sites like Reddit, as is apparent by the amount of trolls in the comments.
  • Quite fascinating, and that means a lot considering the things I've seen and experienced.
  • reminds me of the reddit exclusive 'doge meme' nice dog you have man
  • Love these videos :) totaly gonna try this xD happy Xmas
  • Can we just stop for a minute and talk about that AHHH.MAAZING cover?? OMG... don't care if it's photoshop to death, it's fucking AHHH. MAAAZIIINGGGG!!!!
  • Your oven is so dirty...
  • This is all such BS. It's so much easier for the U.S. government to lie and blame North Korea then the real hackers who will get away with it and probably just some computer geek kids living in their mothers basement. Such an embarrassment for Sony who started this mess in the first place for creating this stupid grade B movie that was provocative and irresponsible.
  • Imagine Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, Stephen Curry, and Michael Jordan, with other random players like Kevin Durant and others on the same team😂

  • Mindblow.
  • this idiot just made the biggest mistake of his life 5 years latter she divorces u and take half your shit
  • We're talking America here. We have security and the Government has its eyes everywhere. I'm pretty sure we've tightened our security and eyes since 9/11. For crying out loud the government is watching us and monitoring us 24x7 on the look out for terrorists. So I feel safe going to the theatres to watch this movie. Kim Jung Un will be unable to hurt us. The reason Sony had balls to make this movie was because they believed in humanity. They believed in a world against terrorists. They believe in a world where we don't need people like Kim Jung Un running as presidents in our God given world. They believe in a free North Korea. To be able to live in peace with them someday without an iron fisted cold hearted dictator. I believe Sony is trying to make a point and showing the world that we can stand up against such people. I say Bring It On. Quote from Taken: "I don't know who you are or what you want. I don't have money but what I do have is a very special set of skills. Skills I have obtained over years. I will find you and I will get you."
  • bruh , this movie got me emotional. like Nicki you been doing yo shit , but this is beyond beautiful. you are beautiful and so freaking creative. I didn't even want this to end like dang bruh. I love you so much. You are a real Inspiration. I don't care about no negative comments , cause there are some good ones. And I'm telling you , from Me personally that you are everything. I see you as a human being , not just as famous. you're just like me. have emotions just like me. Cry , just like me. thank you 💕

  • For the n Koreans that see this. You don't know but you leader controls you and everything you do. They keep a lot of things hidden from you and don't let you see the truth of the world. And if you think differently that's because you being controlled by the n Korean government. You think your leader is a kinda man. But history shows the evil in the n Korean government. Unfourtunely you will never know the truth cause your government won't let you.
  • I'm a little monster and I'm really sad that madonna fans and little monsters are fighting, can we just have a good time. I'm so excited for this album to drop. The album cover remind of the erotic album cover.
  • When was this show?
  • I'm not really sure why there is so much hate in all of these comments and why 'faggot' and Christianity is being brought into anything. Or why this isn't 'good' enough for a proposal. Fucking sad humans you all are. This is awesome, he thought of the perfect moment for THEM which is all that matters in this moment.

  • we've been laying down on our beds our whole lives, sleeping hence this video is bullshit. Laying down to sleep = 8-11 hours per day, every day and laying down is same thing as sitting down, you are letting your body to relax; fucking bullshit; there are other pressing health issues that needs greater attention than seeing health deteriorate just by sitting down for long periods of time (which takes ages to see whether these 'studies' live up to what they claim to be. 
  • More proof Weird Al is a puppet for the *ILLUMINATI* he released 8 videos in 7 days the number 3 and 4 coupled together is a mystical number representing his ties to the Freemasons. This is why the letter "G" is the 7th letter of the alphabet and is displayed in the temple square of the *ILLUMINATI* - Weird Al is 54 years old, there's 5 points on a pentagram with 4 points reflecting downwards, that is his tribute to Lucifer and his followers. None of his videos are funny which is another tribute to the all seeing owl. The all seeing owl has an inverted hairline which shockingly resembles Weird Al's unusual resemblance of a woman. Uses of the number 6 pop up numerous times in this video, it is a signal of Weird Al transitioning from a born man to becoming a whore of the Devil. He wants to look like a woman to confuse the masses. Wake up world.

WHITE geNOcide. If you are White, and you object to your own geNOcide, you are called a RACIST! Well guess what, my people, White people, are catching on very quickly to the following two things: 1 – Multiculturalism is a code for White geNOcide. 2 – Anti-racist is a code for anti-White.

Super thin, let's roll to number 5 (android Lollipop), sound waves (amazing front facing dual speakers), a chameleon full of colors in makro (brilliant display, full of colors), sunset Paris (high dynamic range, crystal clear camera, time lapse), a beast dragon shadow (a SnapDragon 810), palms on a thin glass (Connecting people), eyes taken in macro (Super detail camera capture), tears and goose bumps (capture and share a lot of emotion), kid waiting for it's new brother from a pregnant woman in the 9th month ready to pop out her baby (Z3 waiting for the Z4, a red option possibility), Welcome to the new world (with a lot of possibilities).
  • The beautiful serene music doesn't really help alleviate the immense terror or how horrifyingly fast things are moving in the video, I mean seriously, DID YOU SEE HOW FAST THAT BAY COVER JUST FLEW OFF AND DISAPPEARED INTO THIN AIR?
  • The lady who is hosting this video sounds horrible. The timbre of her voice is so bad that listening to this is like having musicophelia!
  • I cant find it... :(
  • Guys...please stop bullying Sony she has enough crap thrown at her because of the leaks. Everyone makes mistakes. The more you bully her there's probably a chance she will commit suicide. Cyberbully is not okay. Also , it's only Sony Entertainment that was hacked not all of Sony.

  • Like that guy, very news-worthy-- liked the sweater more tho-
  • Meh! By doge standards, that is a lame trick to learn in 3 months. Within that time I managed to get my bankai(only a bleach extraordinaire would understand), get a white gold deck in MTG, watch every episode of bleach and MLP, become a level 80 paladin in WOW and got a lifetime of reddit gold. All within 3 months, rather than learning one useless parlour trick. I sip my dew, tip my fedora and also will be playing MTG under the moon light with my waifu. ~snoop doge, bleach extraordinaire and MTG competitive player.

  • This is sony admitting North Korea has complete control over their developments
  • This hobo has a really nice house... 
  • I understand that Azealia Banks has her feelings towards Iggy Azalea, but the fact that she's coming at her in a disrespectful manner is what is turning me away from fully agreeing with her point of view. It's ok to disagree and have an opinion but it's about how she's voicing it that's turning me off. The fact that she madly disrespecting T.I. tho is what I cant get with even more. I stopped watching after she called him a coon ass nigga. That wasnt necessary and I definitely refuse to listen to someone disrespect another artist who has been in the industry for awhile. If T.I. wants to mentor and sponser Iggy Azalea so what that is his choice. What Banks should be focusing on is how to out shine her competition not down talking Iggy. She should find her artist that's going to help promote her even more not worry about what T.I. is doing for Iggy. Azealia Banks seems to be such a talented artist and it's a shame that she's being so unprofessional.

I think I can see the flight path effect of holding a high AoA at about 9:52 and then a shift to a ballistic trajectory a few seconds later. 
  • black people speaking against her for what? She's calling out issues that affect us! For people who look like us! OUR culture. OUR history. OUR music. STOP trynna play respectability politics by speaking on stereotypical issues, no ones giving you a standing ovation for speaking out against other black people...you embarrass us ALL.
  • YouTube used to be a community driven site... One where the most of the front page content was there because it was interesting. It saddens me to see rubbish like this video on the front page everyday. My hope for the human species plummets when I see the like to dislike ratio. Nicki Minaj is a scourge to humanity, a detrimental parasite. She promotes materialism and promiscuity towards youth. Beats by Dre are over priced, flimsy, mediocre sounding headphones. There are much better options on the market, but many of you will buy Beats because Nicki, the bimbo, told you to buy them. Oh, the decadence...
  • Invading a foreign country and then sniping the people who want to defend their country is nothing to be proud about. I hope the movie does not glorify wrongful bloodshed, but I am not sure a cowboy like clint Eastwood would understand that.

  • I find it so annoying how the show's main storyline is Piper + Alex, while literally every other character is more interesting and fun than those two. >:(
  • Landsberg looks like he likes to suck dicks. What a pathetic looking fag. He does this kind of bullshit all the time in his interviews. I dunno about this cm punk guy but ill reserve my opinion of him until after his 1st fight. The way I see it, the guy is just trying to set a goal for himself. Let him do it. We will see what he is made of. I like how he handled this roast of an interview. 
  • Two main parachutes have the red and white pattern inverted in the middle, while the third parachute doesn't have this feature. Why is that?
  • OK, nice video.

  • Although I have some ill-feelings to her for things she made to Gaga in the past I have to say she is the queen of pop for something.
  • whats wrong with just hiring a professional photographer? I mean instead of going to some cheap random ass dirty ass photo booth.. thats really where they (he) wanted to have such a memorable event to take place? thats terrible xp waste

  • I already saw the movie and it sucked big time, so bored throughout the movie it would put the average North Korean to sleep. If this incident didn't happen this movie would have been a block buster bomb and rated one of the worst movies of the year. Roger Ebert is laughing in his grave at this whole fiasco that is mostly based on a whole bunch of BS.

  • What will astronauts see as they return from Mars? New video recorded during NASA’s Orion return through Earth’s atmosphere provides viewers a taste of what the vehicle endured as it returned through Earth’s atmosphere during its Dec. 5 flight test. The video begins 10 minutes before Orion's 11:29 a.m. EST splashdown in the Pacific Ocean, just as the spacecraft was beginning to experience Earth's atmosphere. Peak heating from the friction caused by the atmosphere rubbing against Orion's heat shield comes less than two minutes later, and the footage shows the plasma created by the interaction change from white to yellow to lavender to magenta as the temperature increases. The video goes on to show the deployment of Orion’s parachutes and the final splash as it touches down.

  • Fake MMA fighter, Landsberg is the best interviewer of sport Period. And he always that way when he interviews people. He smiles, Laughs...etc. As Nate Diaz said, "CM Punk has vergin Nose, and never been punched" now he is telling us that he had some fight outside the fake Wrestling that he does. Get out of here

  • CM Punk "I got to stay awake on TSN; I need my caffeine" Burn and a half
  • Iraq was an illegal war, with no legitimacy. No candy-floss entertainment, homogenous cultural product will justify it. I understand the film is about personal struggle and potentially what the U.S jingoists had him do, but there should be no profit made from that war, especially profit in the sense which glorifies, galvanises war and leads people to believe such war was just or that the "U.S is an exception to the rule". Hopefully, this film wont convey these possibilities and is a mere reflection of how wrong the war was to both sides. However, I would rather much see an Iraqi perspective of the war. At least it would diversify perspective of the masses who blindly absorb what the culture industry shoves down their throat. 
  • Great to see a normal, heterosexual couple going for a marriage. Good. What is natural always looks and feels natural. Because it is.

  • I'm not sure what's a more outdated concept, photo booths or marriage.
  • I'm no fan of Landsberg, I actually think the guy can be real fucking annoyin but it seems Punk was already predisposed to not answering Lansbergs pertinent questions in the best way he could have... But then again dunno how Landsberg was to him off camera but he didn't seem as rude as Punk made him out to be on camera in this interview
  • Watch the video called ' The true story of pou (a social experiment) ' you ll be shocked
  • Your daughter is absolutely adorable. Without a care of what other people would think or say about her in such garb, she sticks to her guns and thinks that the outfit is pretty. A self sense of fashion and lack of caring about society standards, your daughter is now awarded 1000 internets. Please tell her I said to never change.

  • I really hope that opening promo with Justin Bieber and Chef Boyardee was just a joke. I thought Landsberg was usually respectful of wrestlers and UFC fighters. That opening made me cringe. If Punk went off on Landsberg, then it was because that opening was so damn insulting.

  • I wanna see more of the new world. I liked their older videos better but this isnt horrible. Only the music is.
  • Music is a language. Like any language, the more you are exposed to it & interact with it, the more you comprehend it. As an elementary school music teacher, I can tell you for a fact that most people who are tone deaf are that way because they weren't exposed to music in the home as a little kid. You have to listen to enough music in your formative years (from birth to about age 10) to be able to process/hear tonality, hear the relationship of intervals to each other, and be able to match pitch & carry a tune. This is what is known in layman's terms as "having an ear" for music. 
  • FREEDOM OF SPEECH DOESN'T INCLUDE VIOLENCE. PEOPLE ARE SAYING THIS IS BETWEEN SONY (A JAPANESE COMPANY) AND NORTH KOREA.

EITHER WAY, IF YOU DON'T APPROVE OF SOMETHING, HANDLE IT IN A MATURE WAY.

  • Bitch is bitter and she's also racist, she may be right that Iggy may be appropriating black culture but she could've left it like that, by the way she express is more like she hates white people, she's like stating that only black people can do hip-hop or rap and stupid shit like that,I mean just check her twitter and you'll see that girl has some issues. She needs to focus in her career and think why she's not getting the recognizing she deserves because all these rants won't take her any further than a twitter act, unless she's fine with it. But those are my 2 cents...

You are a special and important person, so don‘t try to fit in and start being you ! You are an amazing human being inside and out, never forget to show your beautiful smile :) When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change, you can make your dreams come true ! Just trying to be nice on the internet, I hope this comment helped you a bit :) Sincerely, ME Also, this movie is absolutely awesome, nice to see that Nicki actually is a very good singer and artist ! :)

  • I kinda get what she means. Here in the UK, black artists have been pushed out of R&B. White singers like Adele, Sam Smith, Jessie J and Ed Sheeran are now the new faces of soul and R&B while black and mixed singers like Emeli Sande and Leona Lewis are ignored by the media. In future, I see the same thing happening in America. Remember that Rock and Roll is primarily a combination of *"African-American genres"* such as blues, boogie woogie, jump blues and jazz. Today Rock is considered "white music" and Black artists have completely been pushed out. The same will happen in American Hip Hop and R&B in a few years.

  • This interviewer is about as condescending and intellectually dishonest as they come and he acts as if he's not. While I don't if CM Punk is a legitimate fighter going into the MMA, he shouldn't have been treated like that. CM handled that well and a lot of other people would have flipped Landsberg off and walked off. This interviewer is the worst kind.....he demeans people to make himself look good or famous.

Isn't that cultural appropriation since she's not Spanish? She's angry that iggy is trying to be something she's not but she's kind of doing the same thing.

  • That was... Beautiful.
  • It's a new era. Black people and white people are both a part of hip-hop and are both relevant. Azealia Banks is delusional as fuck and this is coming from a black person. Black people will never get smudged out of their own culture, white people are simply embracing it. Equality goes both ways, no matter the point in time.
  • So, wait, why was it ok to screen a movie about killing George Bush ("Death of a President")? These liberal standards are a little weird.
  • This was needed. Oh how I've missed that cast ..I'm looking at you Alex
  • Why is everybody here depicted as obese? Taiwan, you're weird.
  • Americans are the most hypocrite people on the planet, always finding ways to look like the heroes or the victims.

  • I support all female artists for the most part but what people forget is none of this shit is truly original. All of it has been done been done before in some shape or form the difference is now we have better technology to make shit more flashy. All the artists right now are just all kind of piggy backing off each other. niki is the new little kim. lady gaga is the new Madonna in ten years there will be new people that will be doing the same thing and our children wont even know who these people are. I am not talking smack I support anyone who can hustle their talents I just think its interesting

  • As a mother, this disgusts me. You're actively letting your child watch an adults movie based on violence, sex and incest. The effects can clearly be seen. She's actively wanting to wear next to nothing and thinks that's a good look. Clearly it shows how you're raising her. You're a sick paedophile and a terrible parent who doesn't deserve to be free from jail never mind have a child. - Sharon Hodson, mother of 3 boys.
  • SOOOOOOOOOOOOO GOooooooooood dude, dude i am so jaming to this !
  • The WWE is a tough business and over the years has produced many great athletes, many of them legitimate tough guys. Although I don't think much of Punk for walking out of the WWE, I think he will do well in the UFC as long as they build him up slow and he gets the proper training. Will he be the next Brock Lesnar? Of course not but I don't expect him to be. In all honesty, at Punk's age getting into the UFC, he'll probably be a mid card guy. As for the interview, I found Landsberg to be very patronizing and he was making a mockery of Punk. All of you diehard UFC fans can say what you want about Punk but no one will really know until he gets in that cage. Kimbo Slice for example was a great street fighter so everyone assumed he'd be the cream of the crop but his UFC career was short lived and mediocre. Same with Tank Abbott. I think most of people's hate towards Punk is because he is a former wrestler and nothing more, and there is just very little respect for the wrestling business outside of it. Give the man a chance people.

  • To all the haters stop watching if you going to comment negativity you go nicki #teamnicki
  • @nickshaheen Nick I get your point and agree in principle but 1 small detail popped into my head. Have I just been having the most trippy dreams about 100s if not 100s of movies where a president of a certain North American country has been a target for assassination attempts. In Independance day ET even tries to wak the big guy. Basically what I'm saying is that if in the year 2014 you are not allowed to release a complete piss take of a movie starring 2 of the worlds most recognizable weed smokers because 1 guys ego can't handle something so ridiculously far fetched it makes the tooth fairy buzzing around the world each night replacing teeth with $ sound quite plausible to me (where does the little slapper get all that cash and where does she put it all during flights) learning how to separate reality and fiction would be 1 of the qualities I would want my president to have surely...
  • Ok thats WRONG! I dont think that should be the tutorial world AT ALL like other people are gonna be on YOUR world stampy, griefing it and other bad stuff like and reply is you agree! #ssw! (Save. Stampy's. World.)
  • This is absolutely disgusting, this child has been brainwashed by the father, he was obviously trying to act innocent in this video so the Legion Of Feminists would spare him our wrath. The outfit Princess Leia wore was disgusting, I couldn't believe the level of misogyny I was seeing when I first saw it. It's sickening how this movie isn't banned yet. How pathetic of this male to expose his innocent daughter to imagery of a half-naked victimised woman and teach her that it's okay, all in the name of Reddit Karma and Youtube views!

  • I wish she would sing more often. She has a beautiful voice and although she can rap well, her music sounds so much more mature and emotional when she sings. She seems less like a sex icon and more like a person with this music and video style. :)

  • I. LOVE.THIS.GIRL. 
  • This girl is so IRRELEVANT!!!! 
  • Nope nope no.......it was a much better show back when Letterman and then O'Brien was the hosts.
  • Landsberg was so outclassed in this interview. He was such a dick to Punk. Punk showed poise and class, too bad the other guy didn't do so. Punk could have totally took control and took over this interview. After all, he's done that for YEARS! I still don't understand why people are so annoyed that a FORMER pro wrestler is getting into MMA? Do they get annoyed when a former accountant got into MMA? What about a former police officer? What difference does a guys past make?
  • I actually watching this standing up in the middle of the video...
  • Unbelievable! This video is telling MEN to warp the minds of their daughters and fill it with sexist clothing and make them think that is the norm! As a Male promoter of female rights this needs to STOP! I will stand by no longer and let men take over the world. This will end. As an administrator of the popular social media site, Reddit, I advise you to take this video down before I have it taken down.

  • These jokes are dumb, immature and silly. Apparently good enough for a bunch of shallow ´Muricans, though. How would you hicks like it when North Korea threw a movie on the market that featured the assassination of your President? Fucking narcissists, who hanged Japanese after WWII for waterboarding Americans, but find it A-OK if their CIA does the same to others! And, as to Sony: Have you seen North Korea? It looks like the Stone Age. You think THEY can hack Sony? LOL fools.
  • The insane pressure at 5-10 Km down is totally beyond my comprehension. I've felt the crush when diving down to just 5m, but it's hard to imagine 1000 to 2000 times that pressure.
  • 1.) Mocked Punk right off the bat (Regardless if it was done to be funny or malicious, Punk took offense.) 2.) Ask questions trying to make him look bad ("the agenda") 3.) Brought up his wife (Big no no.) 4.) and disrespected Punk again by grilling him about WWE when he wanted to move on from the subject. (I'm amazed Punk didn't walk out out of the interview too. No joke intended) Michael Landsberg played with fire and he got BURNED!
  • Women are just after money. Have sex with them and leave them.
  • The people who hate Azealia Banks are the same people Ebro referred to as those that avoid conversation on race and come with that "we are all human being" mentality. STFU!! There is something called history and America's history is filthy. To not feel that guilt they run away from talking about it with that "get over it" or "it happened long time ago" mentality as if white supremacy died. I got news for you: America get ready because one day you will have to face your demons and they're here and screaming loud and Azealia Banks is just reminding you of that past and behavior you want to sweep under the rug. It's called KARMA. Yeah I know karma is a bitch but so is genocideS. And please think before you comment. Thank you.

  • So, here's some food for thought. My classes are 90 minutes each, and I have 4 classes a day. Alongside meals, homework and clubs, I will sit much more than the allotted 6 hours. While I do get an hour of exercise from tennis class two to three times a week, it doesn't counteract the sitting I am forced to do for the majority of my day. Thus, I conclude school is killing me.

  • After listening to the complete interview, I have even more respect for Azealia. I love her passion for her art and her courage to speak out about the appropriation of black culture and music and the white washing of our history. Thank you, Ms. Banks. Her album is amazing. It's not like anything you hear on the radio and it's pushes hip-hop to another level.
  • Misty from Pokemon and that girl from the Pokemon movie who plays the conch shell thing. And that girl from yugioh. Disney wise? Rapunzel. Lol. 
  • When you look at cultures that don't sit much (like the papua people in Papua New Guinea, they don't look any healthier than the average person living in North America. On the contrary, they look like they are living very unsanitary lives, have way less body muscle (although less fat as well, which makes them terribly skinny) and their intelligence is actually more limited than in most other countries. The old ones suffer from major bone loss, especially due to the mass exercise they had to apply on their joints in order to stay standing, and all sorts of strange medical conditions occur (like massive wrinkles due to the big loss of collagen from the over-exposure to the sun) with that population alone that we don't have here. Sit down and relax people, at least its' way more enjoyable.
  • This guy was so badass the Iraqi insurgents dubbed him *The Devil of Ramadi* . RIP Chris Kyle P.S. Fuck wars, fuck religion, fuck injustice.
  • Maybe we'll get a president that isn't an assclown come next election. I mean sure, America is becoming a fucking second rate joke, but this dumbass should take his position seriously, instead of trying to be a clown in front of the camera.

If the media is going to portrait ALL Muslims as crazy violent people, we are going to have people like user YouTubePoliceDepartment below this comment willing to kill all Muslims. I'm in Montreal. All Muslims here look very nice. We need people looking for alternative sources on the Internet to learn that Muslims are not evil. Only then we will get along just fine.

Then he meets a girl , "gets a boy/girl" with her and marry her. 2. Then he goes to Afghanistan or Iraq or whatever that shithole is called cause he is a "true" Patriot 3. He starts killing the sand-niggers.... wait wait ! ... I mean The "bad guys" like thousands and thousands , and after killing half of the country he starts to ask himself why he joined the military , some moral shit like "is it right"(after he killed 10000 soldiers) and crying for his fallen friends. 4.yes 4 I will let it open Maybe he dies and hes son says what a "patriot" at the end of the movie or he gets back in a weelchair and says oh, was it right it was so hard there , but i saved Lives and that shit ....

  • For the ppl who don't know this man his name is Chris Kyle his nickname in the millitary was the devil ( don't hate me on that Idk if that's true) and he was Americas most lethal sniper with 160 confirmed kills. He was killed while was at a shooting range and this movie is dedicated to him and to show that being a sniper is never easy. So to all the foregien ppl who think these ppl kill kids and family for no reason plz be a sniper and just try to say it was that easy.

  • First of all, Nicki's freestyle straight up SUCKED. It barely made sense, she barely rhymed, & she didn't bring the ruckus like wu tang. So many things wrong with it that its not worth analyzing further. Her fake sincerity was beyond annoying. She was trying to act modest but everybody know she's far from it. Nicki refused to even play along with shaq's fake proposal which was arrogant & conceited. She even had attitude when she said it. So much disrespect for a veteran in the rap game. Anyways, I give the cypher up to Kenny. I think Kenny knocked it out the park with his freestyle. Very basic stuff but he represented hip hop properly. Shaq wasn't taking it 100% seriously so he didn't bring his best. For a written, Grant Hill wasn't half bad. And then the way Ernie handled his biz was classic. He brought it the best he could. Nice stuff from him...
  • Nick Offerman - The savior of late night chat shows.
  • Bring on the Z4. And @ previous posters, how would you be if North Korea hacked you? Would you withdraw your movie too? I for one would go to work on an even more offensive movie, if indeed Sony's "The Interview" is offensive to them in such a way they had to go do this which seems to be the case. Give em the finger, and give us an excuse to go to war with the bastards.

  • So the best rapper has to be Black? Please we(BLACKS) started the same foolishness with Eminem. But today we can't discredit because he brought something to the table. Azelia Banks, if you think you better than Iggy, make a good album first instead of saying because she is white. Nobody can discredit NAS, JAY Z, 2PAC, RAkeem, Snoop... because they did the job. You are young to start now and be brillliant. Stop blaming the white man for everything in America please. Rap as good as Nikki you admire. Take Care!!!!

  • What will astronauts see as they return from Mars? New video recorded during NASA’s Orion return through Earth’s atmosphere provides viewers a taste of what the vehicle endured as it returned through Earth’s atmosphere during its Dec. 5 flight test. The video begins 10 minutes before Orion's 11:29 a.m. EST splashdown in the Pacific Ocean, just as the spacecraft was beginning to experience Earth's atmosphere. Peak heating from the friction caused by the atmosphere rubbing against Orion's heat shield comes less than two minutes later, and the footage shows the plasma created by the interaction change from white to yellow to lavender to magenta as the temperature increases. The video goes on to show the deployment of Orion’s parachutes and the final splash as it touches down.
