WTF? Why did Big Bang do so many parodies? They look so young. But TOP is just so friggin' hilarious in this. - ronin from Bookmarklet
This is one my favorite parodies of theirs. I kind of wish they still did them together. - Anika
Where were these originally shown? Did they have their own tv show at one point? - ronin
Yes. Most idol groups have their own shows generally pre-debut to debut. It's usually just reality TV, but many of them do parodies of TV shows, movies and other idol groups. This was on BigBangTV. When the idol groups go on variety shows, the MCs often reference stuff that happened on the shows. So usually, when the questions seem out of left field, that's why. - Anika
FWIW, their Coffee Shop Prince and Secret Garden parodies are great, but even more so if you've seen the shows. - Anika

Made In The USA: Childless Chinese Turn To American Surrogates : Parallels : NPR
"Chinese couples who are unable to have children are turning to a surprising place for help these days: America. By hiring American surrogates, Chinese couples get around a ban on surrogacy in China, as well as the country's birth limits. It also guarantees their children something many wealthy Chinese want these days: a U.S. passport." - ronin from Bookmarklet

Study confirms monkeys can do math | The Verge
"Scientists have long suspected that monkeys are capable of mental arithmetics and a new study is helping them prove it. A research team led by neurobiologist Margaret Livingstone trained three rhesus macaques to identify symbols representing the numbers zero to 25. They then taught the test subjects how to perform addition." - ronin from Bookmarklet

The Japanese Passenger on the Titanic | J-List Blog
Such a peculiarly Japanese mindset. "When the ship had its fateful collision with an iceberg at 11:40 pm on April 14, Mr. Hosono was asleep, and didn’t wake until someone knocked on the door of his second-class cabin to tell him to put his life-vest on. He eventually made his way to the lifeboats and, hearing an announcement that there was room in lifeboat no. 10, he jumped in. His life was saved, but he might have wished it hadn’t been: he was attacked in the Japanese press for living when so many others had died, and fired from his job at the ministry, and some even called for him to commit suicide to atone for his dishonorable act." - ronin from Bookmarklet

Are You Making the Most Out of Life? Here’s How You Can. | TIME.com - http://time.com/61989...
"“Am I making the most out of my life?“ The question wasn’t “What makes me feel good?” There’s no shortage of that. The problem is that in the quest for “What makes me feel good” there’s no finish line. It’s a pie eating contest and first prize is more pie. What combination of things makes us feel we have enough? What kills the need for more? What, in this world of infinite perpetually screaming options, makes us lean back from the table and calmly say, “I’m good, thanks”?" - ronin from Bookmarklet

Resegregation in the American South - The Atlantic
"Tuscaloosa’s school resegregation—among the most extensive in the country—is a story of city financial interests, secret meetings, and angry public votes. It is a story shaped by racial politics and a consuming fear of white flight. It was facilitated, to some extent, by the city’s black elites. And it was blessed by a U.S. Department of Justice no longer committed to fighting for the civil-rights aims it had once championed." - ronin from Bookmarklet

How Burrowing Owls Lead To Vomiting Anarchists (Or SF’s Housing Crisis Explained) | TechCrunch
Massive article but well worth the read, especially if you live/work in that area. "Today, the tech industry is apparently on track to destroy one of the world’s most valuable cultural treasures, San Francisco, by pushing out the diverse people who have helped create it. At least that’s the story you’ve read in hundreds of articles lately. It doesn’t have to be this way. But everyone who lives in the Bay Area today needs to accept responsibility for making changes where they live so that everyone who wants to be here, can." - ronin from Bookmarklet

Domino’s just replaced its pizza crust with fried chicken - Salon.com
*cry* "Last December, in Israel, Domino’s introduced a cheese-free pizza after a vocal vegan lobby successfully convinced the company it was what the people wanted. Here in the U.S., what the people apparently wanted was a pizza made with fried chicken instead of dough. Wish granted. The pizza chain Monday announced its newest menu item: Specialty Chicken (motto: “Failure is an option”). It’s a “delicious” combo of sauce, cheese and toppings spread over “12 bites of lightly breaded, 100 percent whole breast white meat chicken.”" - ronin from Bookmarklet

Fantastic photos. "The Kazakhs of the Altai mountain range in western Mongolia are the only people that hunt with golden eagles, and today there are around 400 practising falconers. Ashol-Pan, the daughter of a particularly celebrated hunter, may well be the country's only apprentice huntress." - ronin from Bookmarklet
"The eagles are not bred in captivity, but taken from nests at a young age. Female eaglets are chosen since they grow to a larger size - a large adult might be as heavy as seven kilos, with a wingspan of over 230cm. After years of service, on a spring morning, a hunter releases his mature eagle a final time, leaving a butchered sheep on the mountain as a farewell present. "That's how... more... - ronin

"Disgusting!," Cry Legal Experts: Is This The Lowest A Top U.S. Law Firm Has Ever Stooped?
"Where imperial Japan’s atrocities are concerned, however, at least one top U.S. law firm hasn’t been so choosy. In what is surely one of the most controversial civil suits ever filed in the United States, the Los Angeles office of Chicago-based Mayer Brown is trying to prove that the so-called comfort women – the sex slaves used by the Imperial Japanese Army in World War II – were no more than common prostitutes." - ronin from Bookmarklet
"Should Mayer Brown have taken on this suit? Here is the opinion of the prominent First Amendment attorney Marc Randazza: “Every law firm gets confronted (on a pretty regular basis) with the question: ‘should I put my name on this?’ That soul searching comes into play when you wonder, ‘is this honorable?’ You know when it is, and when it isn’t.
