Has string theory tied up better ideas in physics?
  • Nobel physicist Wolfgang Pauli didn't suffer fools gladly. Fond of calling colleagues' work "wrong" or "completely wrong," he saved his worst epithet for work so sloppy and speculative it is "not even wrong."

Weekend Box Office Results for June 23-25, 2006
  • Sandler came in strong,consistent with expectations or maybe a hair below.
  • Waist Deep did almost double what was anticipated, and nearly equaled Sandler in revenues per screen! 83% of the audience was black, so it represented some very successful marketing to the African-American community, especially women. 57% of the audience was female. That film took the number four spot despite being on a mere 1000 screens, grossing more than Tokyo Drift, which was on 3000 screens!
  • Last week's two highest grossers dropped dramatically. Nacho Libre and Tokyo Drift fell about 60% apiece.
  • The DaVinci Code passed $200 million
  • The top twelve were up about 7% over last year. That is the rut into which the summer has fallen. The last five weeks have run +7, +2, +8, +7, +7. The industry hopes to break out of that routine next week, because Superman Returns is widely expected to kick ass, while last year's War of the Worlds inspired little passion.
