MLB "Speed" Use Emerges In Report
  • "Dan Wheat, a former Texas Rangers head trainer, told probers that the use of speed was 'prevalent' among big leaguers and he considered it a bigger problem than steroids. The report quotes Wheat recalling how he once asked a player, 'Of the nine players on the field, how many took greenies today?' Wheat said that the athlete responded, 'eight.'"

Will Canada and Denmark go to war over Hans Island? Well, maybe not, but this barren chunk of rock is starting to look kinda-sorta important as Global Warming opens up the Northwest Passage.
  • Hey, wait a minute. Isn't the island's ownership obvious from the name? I mean it isn't called McKenzie Island or Pierreland. "Hans" sounds pretty darned Danish to me.

Cracked Magazine's parody of ESPN

I'd contract it out to Hollywood. They have done it so often they should have it down to a science. And remember the sage wisdom of Homer Simpson "Actors, is there anything they don't know?"

 

Lemur named after John Cleese
  • Urs Thalmann, of the University of Zurich, who discovered the species, said the lemur's long legs were the only physical similarity to the actor, famous for his Silly Walks sketch. "Woolly lemurs can't really walk, but they do enjoy silly jumps."

The trailer for The Fountain, Aronofsky's new film. I don't know much about the movie, but the teaser-trailer is a must-see. It is in high definition, created for the internet, in spectacular quality.
  • "A quest for immortality - via a 'tree of life' found in Central America - is attempted in three different centuries, the ultimate lesson being that death, as part of the process of rebirth, is to be embraced, not feared."

I didn't know David Letterman was still on TV. How's his show doing?

 

"HOW TO TELL IF YOU'VE BEEN ABDUCTED BY ALIENS"
  • MOST people have been abducted by aliens, say some UFO experts -- so odds are you're one of them. "Extraterrestrials possess the ability to wipe human memory clean," said Dr. J. Albert Longneck, a UFO investigator from Houston, Texas. "You could be kidnapped once or twice a week and you wouldn't remember a thing."

The Weekend Warrior's predictions for the weekend of Nov 11-13.
  • There are some surprises here, at least to me. He's predicting Zathura to finish fourth, despite excellent reviews and 3000 screens, yet he's predicting the 50 Cent movie to amass awe-inspiring revenues per screen, allowing it to finish second despite scathing reviews and a presence on only 1600 screens.
  • If there's money to grab, these movies better grab it now, because Harry Potter arrives next weekend.

This week's movies: Get Rich or Die Tryin' - 18% positive reviews. This is the movie about 50 Cent. "[A] major disappointment from director Jim Sheridan, who... seems lost in his first foray away from Irish-themed films..."
  • What? They never heard of the Black Irish?

This week's movies (limited distro - 215 screens): Pride and Prejudice - 88% positive reviews. It was widely praised as a lush, romantic movie, but "any resemblance to scenes and characters created by Miss Austen is, of course, entirely coincidental."

  • "This murky psychological suspenser manages the tricky feat of being as predictable as it is finally preposterous." -- VARIETY
  • "This flaccid psychological thriller keeps spoiling its own surprise by constantly signaling the big plot twist." -- HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
  • "The odds are even that reaction to the twist, when it comes, will be huh! Or duh. Or whaaaa?" Entertainment Weekly

I don't believe I have ever seen the editors of staid Scientific American refer to people as "dimwits" before.
