Top Gun 2 pits Tom Cruise against drones | Digital Trends
"“The concept is, basically, are the pilots obsolete because of drones? Cruise is going to show them that they’re not obsolete,” Bruckheimer told HuffPost. “They’re here to stay.”" - ronin from Bookmarklet
All they have to do is add a love triangle and a psycho AI/pop star and we'll have Macross Plus! - ronin

LA Times - Malaysia plane: Confronting searchers is an ocean full of garbage
:( ""In addition to foul weather, administrative bungling and the vastness of the search area, the search for MH 370 has been compounded by one other factor: the incredible amount of garbage already floating in the search area — and in oceans worldwide,’’ wrote Marc Lallanilla on the website, livescience.com, where he referred to the search for Flight 370 as a “needle in a garbage patch.’’" - ronin from Bookmarklet

Playground removes "safety" rules; fun, development and injuries ensue - Boing Boing - http://boingboing.net/2014...
"The Swanson School in Auckland, NZ, quietly eliminated all the rules against "unsafe play," allowing kids to play swordfight with sticks, ride scooters, and climb trees. It started when the playground structures were torn down to make way for new ones, and the school principal, Bruce McLachlan, noticed that kids were building their own structures out of the construction rubble. The "unsafe" playground has resulted in some injuries, including at least one broken arm, but the parents are very supportive of the initiative." - ronin from Bookmarklet
I'm still pissed playgrounds here no longer have seesaws. - ronin

The Strange Case of David A. Trampier | Skyland Games
"Grognards and other fans of 1st Edition D&D will remember some of the greatest illustrations in role-playing being drawn by David A. Trampier (aka ‘TRAMP’ or ‘DAT’). The original cover of the 1st Edition Players Handbook, plus plenty of monsters in both the 1st Edition Monster Manual and from the Gamma World Series were his creations. He designed or played a role in design of several games, like Titan and Divine Right, and was the creator of the long running Dragon Magazine comic strip Wormy. I was always a fan of his work, but never connected the dots that this illustration and this comic and this game all were from him, until much later. Trampier was not only in on the ground floor, but was moving to publish his own collected volume of Wormy, when something strange happened in April of 1988… He disappeared." - ronin from Bookmarklet

It's very similar to how they've folded in French cuisine (especially pastries,) coffee houses and cafes, wine appreciation, etc. It's pretty fun to see, because the joy in what's being produced is evident. - Jennifer Dittrich

Netflix users on Verizon and AT&T get raw deal, have little reason for hope | Ars Technica
"In short, many US residents stick with Internet service providers they hate because the have no choice, and that gives ISPs a lot of leverage in negotiations with Netflix." - ronin from Bookmarklet
"But there are reasons to feel sorry for customers of Verizon and AT&T (and surely other ISPs) who are barely able to use a product they've paid for because of business conflicts they might not even be aware of. US residents subscribe to Internet service expecting the ability to access all the services on the Internet. Today, there is not enough competition and no law on the books to ensure that expectation is met." - ronin

Heh. "Grave of the Fireflies knows what it did, and I'm still waiting for an apology." - ronin from Bookmarklet
Ha yes. I've seen many of these, but there are some that I definitely have to add to my list. - Shevonne
I think I've seen about 2/3, but several of the unseen ones are on my list. I'm so glad they included "Only Yesterday," even though it is wicked hard to find in the US. That's just one of my favorite movies, no matter the format/language. - Jennifer Dittrich
Though I am laughing myself stupid that somebody name-dropped "Bible Black." I'm also laughing at myself for even knowing anything about that series. - Jennifer Dittrich
I've had the Japanese BD release of Only Yesterday sitting in my Amazon.jp cart for months now. And the soundtrack is pretty good too. - ronin
Yeah, I need to pick that up. There's not likely going to be a better release of that here. - Jennifer Dittrich
I've blacked out Grave of the Fireflies to the point I can't even remember much but the very beginning of the film. I've watched it probably half a dozen times because I simply don't remember it. - Not Me

BBC News - Ecuadorean super-snorer wins siesta contest in Spain
This was back in 2010. "A jobless security worker has won a competition billed as Spain's inaugural siesta championship, napping for 17 minutes in a busy shopping centre. Ecuadorean Pedro Soria Lopez took first place and 1,000 euros (£890) for his efforts - or lack of them. Judges praised the 62-year-old not only for the duration of his 40 winks, but also for his volume, notching up snores of 70 decibels - around talking level." - ronin from Bookmarklet
"Judges awarded points for the speed with which participants fell asleep, the volume of their snoring, the most original sleeping position and the best-dressed sleeper." - ronin
sounds like my dad back in the 70s, in the days before you could win money for this. - Big Joe Silence

"Culture always seems to grow legs of its own. Regardless of how specific and niche you might think a culture is, it always finds a way to go where you least expect it. Except “Where you least expect it” always seems to be Japan. For such a supposedly homogenous culture, Japanese people seem to wholly embrace new cultures all the time." - ronin from Bookmarklet

Minnesota's kids' game can't duck controversy | Star Tribune
I'd never heard of the Gray Duck version before. ""More proof of Minnesota’s superiority: We play better games. Or, at least, our version of a classic children’s game is better than everyone else’s, according to a handful of admittedly biased experts. The game is Duck, Duck, Gray Duck. Or is it? If you think it’s Duck, Duck, Goose, then either: a) You’re wrong, b) You’re not from Minnesota, or c) Both."" - ronin

Study says parents’ help with homework does more harm than good - The Mommy Files
"After analyzing nearly 25,000 student surveys provided by the U.S. National Center for Education Statistics and family questionnaires from Child Development Supplement, researchers found that parent help is mostly inconsequential, and sometimes can even hurt." - ronin from Bookmarklet
I don't quite buy into this though. "And so why do children of more affluent parents do better in school? Robinson believes it’s because their parents talk to their children about college and these kids are growing up in an environment surrounded by high-achieving individuals." - ronin
"What can parents do to set their kids on a path of success? Robinson and Harris found that children of parents who set high expectations and then stepped back performed especially well." - ronin
We're not affluent, but we do talk to our kids about college. It's actually a focus of their school. The kids study colleges all year long. My kids even have perfect attendance. Hasn't helped my son do well at all and my daughter is middling. - Anika

After Serving 15 Yrs In Prison For Robbing Shoe Store, Man Robs Same Store: Gothamist
*facepalm* "A NJ man who served 15 years in prison for robbing a shoe store attempted to rob that same shoe store the day after he was released from prison. Christopher Miller, 40, was released from jail Friday, and his first stop as a free man on Saturday was at the Stride Rite shoe store in Toms River—the same place he robbed in 1999. "I knew who he was right away," the 43-year-old manager of Stride Rite, who worked there in 1999 when the first robbery occurred, told the Post. "I just think [he came back] because he didn’t get anything the last time."" - ronin from Bookmarklet

"This giant gem—a 21,000 carat light blue topaz called the Brazilian Princess—was cut in the late 1970s, just to prove it could be done, according to George Harlow, curator of the division of physical sciences. “It was the largest gem ever fashioned,” he says. “In order to cut a stone, you have to be able to hold it and put it on a grinding wheel to polish it. That was the challenge at the time.”" - ronin from Bookmarklet

Artist Turns Corrective Helmets for Babies into Works of Art - Neatorama
"Plagiocephaly is a neonatal disorder popularly known as “baby flat-head.” During gestation, a baby’s skull encounters resistance and grows a flattened surface. One common treatment is to wear a custom helmet that corrects the growth as the child ages. Perhaps they’re not pretty appliances, but Paula Strawn is here to fix that problem. Over the past 10 years, she’s painted 1,200 helmets with playful and fancy designs, from the works of Van Gogh to super heroes." - Me from Bookmarklet
Great work. We just stuck stickers on our son's when he had it for 3 months. - ronin
One of the babies in my classroom wore a helmet for a while. She had hearts painted on it... Love the flight helmet & goggles! SO CUTE! - Lisa L. Seifert
