"Police in Germany are hunting pranksters who have been sticking miniature flag portraits of George W. Bush into piles of dog poo in public parks."
  • "Legal experts say there is no law against using feces as a flag stand and the federal constitution is vague on the issue."
  • ... which is kind of surprising. You'd think the German constitution would have several highly specific provisions stipulating which types of animal shit can be used to support flags.

Six clips from Little Miss Sunshine
  • "Little Miss Sunshine tells the story of the Hoovers, one of the most endearingly fractured families ever seen on motion picture screens. Together, the motley six-member family treks from Albuquerque to the Little Miss Sunshine pageant in Redondo Beach, California, to fulfill the deepest wish of 7-year-old Olive, an ordinary little girl with big dreams. Along the way the family must deal with crushed dreams, heartbreak, and a broken-down VW bus, leading up to the surreal Little Miss Sunshine competition itself. On their travels through this bizarrely funny landscape, the Hoovers learn to trust and support each other along the path of life, no matter what the challenge."

An extended clip from Step Up
  • "Everyone deserves a chance to follow their dreams, but some people only get one shot. Tyler Gage (Channing Tatum) is a rebel from the wrong side of Baltimore's tracks – and the only thing that stands between him and an unfulfilled life are his dreams of one day making it out of there. Nora (Jenna Dewan) is a privileged ballet dancer attending Baltimore's ultra-elite Maryland School of the Arts -- and the only thing standing in the way of her obviously brilliant future is finding a great dance partner for her senior showcase. When trouble with the law lands Tyler with a community service gig at Maryland School of the Arts, he arrives as an angry outsider, until his skills as a gifted street dancer draw Nora's attention. Now, as sparks fly between them, both on and off stage, Tyler realizes he has just one performance to prove that he can step up to a life far larger than he ever imagined. Featuring the directorial debut of leading choreographer Anne Fletcher, the film also stars R&B superstar Mario, Drew Sidora as well as rap legend Heavy D, Damaine Radcliff, De'Shawn Washington and Academy Award® nominee and Golden Globe® winner Rachel Griffiths."

KEVIN SMITH STORMS OUT OF SCREENING OF CLERKS II
  • "Smith had not seen the fully-edited version of Clerks II until last week's screening in New York City. "I feel bad now about what I said about Siegel," said Smith. "Apparently, he was right on the money when he said this movie was foul and mean and repulsive."

Google Earth images of all 30 MLB ballparks.
  • Assuming North to be 0 degrees, East 90, and South 180, Minute Maid Ballpark in Houston is the only ballpark where the batter faces anywhere between 181 and 359 degrees, and that barely within the range at about 345 - close to due North. The Houston park has a retractable roof, so the slight Western exposure does not affect batters in the early evening. The management doesn't draw the roof back until after dark.
  • Several parks are very close to due north, but no others vary on the westerly side. Chase Field (DBacks) seems to face due North. Comerica (Tigers) is the closest to due South - maybe 150%. San Francisco's AT&T park seems to face almost due East.
