If You Took Away Their Bathrooms, Which Friends Character Would Pee on the Floor First? -- Vulture
"When we saw Ian Roach's re-creation of the cast of Friends in The Sims 4, our imaginations ran wild. Friends ended in 2004, but it left us with so many questions: Which Friend can survive the longest without food? Or a bathroom? If you locked them along together in their apartment, how long would it take Joey and Chandler to fall in love? We had Roach run a few simulations and now you'll never have to wonder again." - rönin from Bookmarklet

"“The root of the problem isn’t [Asian American actors]. It’s the content created for them. That’s why I’m a content creator,” Ko says. “I know the reality of my situation. I have to do it myself.” “Millennials are so for change. All we want is change. We’re so eager for change, but you have to be willing to change the conversation and to adapt to this new world that we’re living in,” says Ko." - rönin from Bookmarklet

"The Atomettes are meeting again — as they have for 65 years. What began in 1949 as a social club of seven young Japanese American girls finding refuge from exclusion and racism is still going strong today — a bond of friendship that has endured through college and careers, marriage and motherhood, surgeries and deaths." - rönin from Bookmarklet

I Took A Picture Of My Son With My Canon PowerShot G1 X And He Disappeared Forever | ClickHole
I thought having your photo taken was supposed to steal your soul, not your corporeal body. ;-p "I’d say the only issue I’ve run into so far is that I recently used my G1 X to take a picture of my son and he immediately disappeared forever. I really don’t understand what happened here. One moment I’m taking a photo of my son, the next moment he’s blinked out of existence entirely. His shadow is still there, but he’s completely gone. Is this a common issue for the G1 X? I’d really appreciate any assistance anyone on this thread might have so that I can get this issue resolved as soon as possible." - rönin from Bookmarklet
"Also, I don’t know if this is somehow related, but three days after I took the picture, a strange old man appeared. In the picture, he’s standing right where my son was standing, but he is very clearly not my son. Is this a problem that is unique to Canon digital cameras, or do other brands like Nikon and Sony also do this sometimes?" - rönin

Goliath Encounter: Puppy-Sized Spider Surprises Scientist in Rainforest - Yahoo News
If that was me I would have instantly understood what I was seeing and then promptly crapped my pants. "Piotr Naskrecki was taking a nighttime walk in a rainforest in Guyana, when he heard rustling as if something were creeping underfoot. When he turned on his flashlight, he expected to see a small mammal, such as a possum or a rat. "When I turned on the light, I couldn't quite understand what I was seeing," said Naskrecki, an entomologist and photographer at Harvard University's Museum of Comparative Zoology. A moment later, he realized he was looking not at a brown, furry mammal, but an enormous, puppy-size spider." - rönin from Bookmarklet
"When Naskrecki approached the imposing creature in the rainforest, it would rub its hind legs against its abdomen. At first, the scientist thought the behavior was "cute," he said, but then he realized the spider was sending out a cloud of hairs with microscopic barbs on them. When these hairs get in the eyes or other mucous membranes, they are "extremely painful and itchy," and can stay there for days, he said." - rönin

"When the Minneapolis metro region went to build a light rail line connecting downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul, the initial reaction was not good. Several community groups from lower-income neighborhoods along the proposed route opposed the project. They'd been scarred from a previous highway project that cut right through the neighborhood, dividing homes from the retail district and resulting in hundreds of evictions. They were afraid the new rail line would do the same." - rönin from Bookmarklet

"Kenyans don’t usually see working-class mzungus. Melanin-challenged visitors and residents tend to be professionals, diplomats, United Nations types or safarigoers — people with means. Tell Kenyans that there are white people who sleep in rags on the sidewalks of America and most shake their heads and laugh in disbelief." - rönin from Bookmarklet
"“I think it’s going to work,” said the female patron, who asked not to be identified because she knew one of Caramel’s investors. “Where else in this country are you going to get a mzungu waiter? It’s a bit of a screwed-up mentality, but some people have a post-colonial hang-up, and if they can turn the tables, they’ll pay a premium for that.”" - rönin

'The Tale of the Princess Kaguya' is the most gorgeous film you'll see all year | The Verge
"Princess Kaguya is based on a 10th-century Japanese folk story called The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter, which tells of a poor couple that discover a mystical girl in a forest and take it upon themselves to raise her as a princess. Takahata takes this narrative and runs with it, exploring the transient nature of life, the shallowness of wealth and materialism, and the absurdity of societal roles along the way. But Princess Kaguya’s plot is a simple one at first — most viewers will be more immediately grabbed by the astonishing art style." - rönin from Bookmarklet

Does Hatsune Miku's Ascent Mean the End of Music as We Know It? - http://tmagazine.blogs.nytimes.com/2014...
Does Hatsune Miku's Ascent Mean the End of Music as We Know It?
"What does Hatsune Miku mean for the future of music? There’s little doubt that the character’s success has been fueled by a growing otaku (Japanese for people obsessed with anime and manga) community; last weekend’s Hatsune Miku Expo overlapped with New York Comic Con, which drew over 150,000 sci-fi, comic book and anime enthusiasts (many of them costumed) to the Javits Center over the course of four days. And machine-generated popular music is nothing new; many of today’s biggest hits — from Disclosure’s “Latch” to Beyoncé’s “XO” — are littered with digital loops and blips. Outside of hip-hop, which has carried the mantle of popular music’s most creative genre since the ’90s, few styles have carved out as much musical real estate in the past decade as electronic and EDM. So perhaps Hatsune Miku represents the inevitable. To quote Miku herself — or, more accurately, the Vocaloid producer kz, who penned “Packaged,” one of her earliest hits — “It’s reaching you, right? It’s echoing, isn’t it?”" - rönin from Bookmarklet
