Trial & Error is a promising new show with John Lithgow... sort of his 3rd Rock character combined with his Dexter character with a bit of Parks & Rec feel

on Tuesdays, started last night

One couple has been accused of urinating on several copies of the Quran and on former President Bill Clinton’s autobiography at a library in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Library workers also claimed the couple placed copies of the Bible and books written by conservative commentator Ann Coulter around the library “as if they were placed on display for all to see,” according to a police report.

yeah, and just when this very UGT-apt story broke...


A Moscow zoo is suing a video studio that hired one of its raccoons and made what the zoo calls an "erotic" video.

Spokesman Viktor Kiryukhin told the BBC the raccoon - Thomas - returned from the studio traumatised. "We noticed he was attracted to women's breasts."

Video firm Art-Msk called the zoo's lawsuit "absurd". They also said the raccoon stole a model's bra on set.

Viktor Kiryukhin said Thomas's interest in women's breasts suggested that during filming they had "put out some treats for him, so he associated breasts with a treat".

The raccoon's behaviour since his return had unsettled female zoo staff.

"It took two to three months to change his behaviour. Now he is happy again… but he was sad before," he told the BBC.

Mr Bogatov has threatened to counter-sue the zoo, and to claim compensation for the damaged bra, the Russian blogsite tjournal reports.

Antonio Romero suffered severe injuries when a bull plunged a horn into his backside in Mexico City’s Plaza Mexico on Sunday, Univision reports.

Dr. Rafael Vázquez Bayod told the outlet that the goring damaged Romero’s anus and rectum. He required an operation that included controlling the bleeding, the doctor said. Romero was scheduled to later undergo reconstructive surgery.

The bull, a 1,160-pounder named Caporal, penetrated nearly a foot inside the cavity.

"DC Executive Worried Batgirl Script Not Interesting Enough To Be Movie, 3 More Movies, 2028 Reboot And 4 More Movies"
[Onion News in Brief]
http://www...rl-script-not-interestin-55614
"BURBANK, CA—While giving creative notes on the screenplay in a Friday meeting, DC Comics president Geoff Johns reportedly said he was concerned that a recent draft of the Batgirl: Origins script was not compelling enough to support a movie, three more movies, a 2028 reboot, and four additional movies. “Frankly, I just don’t see this having the legs to carry a feature film, a follow-up trilogy, a video game franchise, and then another prequel trilogy,” Johns said, adding that while the script’s first act “definitely works,” he worried the narrative would drag when stretched to a full 90-minute runtime, several more 90-minute runtimes, and a dozen more 50-minute runtimes as part of the Netflix tie-in series. “I’m just worried this starts running out of steam well before the end of the movie, the comic book adaptation, and the standalone spinoff movies telling the Huntress’s backstory. If a narrative can’t even sustain a single movie and a Lego set, let alone more than one syndicated animated series, maybe it needs some heavy revisions.” At press time, DC executives had decided to ask for a total rewrite after concluding villain Killer Moth was not an interesting enough antagonist to hold people’s interest for two hours and the length of several Six Flags roller coasters."

An Idaho motorist told the local sheriff’s department that a Bigfoot sighting caused her to crash her car last Wednesday night.

According to Pullman Radio, the woman, who was not identified, told the Latah County Sheriff’s Office that she saw a Sasquatch chasing a deer on a stretch of US-95 outside of Potlatch.

She said the creature was “shaggy” and between 7 and 8 feet tall.

The woman checked her mirrors to see the Bigfoot, but as her eyes re-adjusted to the road she hit the deer with her Subaru Forester.

finally some feel-good AR-15 news:

Three suspected burglars are dead after they broke into an Oklahoma home and were confronted by a man reportedly armed with an AR-15 rifle.

The three suspects, all of them in their teens, allegedly forced their way into a house near Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, around noon on Monday. The homeowner and his son were home at the time. The son, 23, says he grabbed the firearm and confronted the intruders, according to local reports.

The son, whose name has not been made public, opened fire on the suspects. Two of them died inside the home, while the third collapsed in the driveway, the Wagoner County sheriff’s office said.

All three suspects were reportedly clad in black, including masks and gloves. A 21-year-old woman who later turned herself in is accused of serving as the trio’s getaway driver.

That woman, identified as Elizabeth Marie Rodriguez of Oologah, faces three counts of first-degree felony murder and one count of first-degree burglary.

The authorities recovered brass knuckles and a knife from the suspects’ bodies. The homeowner and his son were not injured.

I'm still excited that this means that the US is ready for a President Camacho :D

@AR Story: wows! saw a headline for that but didn't know it was that interesting. I'm guessing they threw first-degree felony murder at her because the prosecutor wants to punish someone and she was the only survivor (pesky homeowner taking the prosecutor's glory!), but they may have to prove that she was aware that her friends were carrying deadly weapons. They don't *need* that, but a jury might think that felony murder is excessive if she was just waiting in the car.. not sure how Oklahoma peeps feel about over-prosecution.

lets ponder why that ^robin guy is wandering around a park with a pitchfork :p

-------

A laundromat owner in Philadelphia shot an alleged robber on the street as he fled Sunday ― just part of the chaos that unfolded during the pursuit.

Bullets also hit a bystander while others at the scene scooped up the $2,000 in stolen cash that the suspect tossed in the air as he ran, WPVI reported.

Cops say the suspect had robbed the laundromat owner at knifepoint, according to WPVI. The robber left with the money and the owner grabbed his revolver and gave chase.

An observer, Angel Perez, told the local NBC affiliate that the proprietor yelled for the suspect to stop several times. That’s when he opened fire, hitting the alleged thief twice in the chest and striking a 51-year-old woman in the hand.

Meanwhile, neighbors who had ducked for cover then descended on the sidewalk to scoop up the cash the suspect had left behind.

The owner was not charged in the shooting, CBS Philly noted. Investigators say the owner saw the suspect turn and raise his hand during the pursuit, prompting the proprietor, a licensed gun owner, to fear that the suspect had a weapon, WPVI reported.

i wonder how many bystanders he could shoot before being charged

Random CC IRL update: when my friends say something mean to me I usually just laugh and move on, but this time I'm going to try to hold a grudge. It's difficult work, because I'm usually way too sarcastic for this level of participation. Still, while I might be mean in UP sometimes, it occurred to me that IRL I'm really supportive even of people who mistreat me, so this will be a fun experiment in reciprocity ;p

I have to face the real possibility that I might wind up careerless for the rest of my life, with no long-term occupational pursuit to nurture and devote myself to. God, that’s sad.” At press time, Bleicher said she was considering settling for a company that she only found somewhat attractive but that was eager to commit to her and help her develop professionally."

The routine meal that they offered was burger and fries, but on a vegetarian diet that left me with just fries and the burger bun. The salad bar was a dollar extra, so I usually didn't use it (it only had lettuce and some very minor items like baby tomatoes anyways).

"Man Has Been Meaning To Catch Up On Whole Of Human Artistic Endeavor"
[Onion Full Article]
http://www...-whole-human-artistic-en-55654
"“From what everyone says, it sounds pretty cool, but I just haven’t gotten around to it yet,” said Regan, who explained he has been meaning to follow up on friends’ recommendations to check out sculpture, photography, the Western literary canon, cinema, printmaking, traditional Asian puppet theater, and all of the performing arts. “I figure I should probably start from the beginning, with Paleolithic ivory carvings, and work my way forward from there. But I’ve also been told there’s some really awesome stuff going on with architecture from the Roman Empire through the European Renaissance, so that could be a good place to start, too.”"

i picked up Ark:Survival Evolved on Steam (on sale for $10 now)... has mixed reviews so not recommending necessarily :p, haven't played it yet... certainly sounds bad PvP-wise but not planning to play multiplayer

anyway, the reason i mention is it wants 51 GB to install!

Civ 1 was < 2 MB... damn byte inflation

it's got some weird reviews... many people w/ 1000s of hrs played saying they don't like it :p

perhaps is the work of Jared Kushner (who many people are saying is the devil)

I wanted to figure out why Kushner is known at all.. and this was the wiki article: "senior advisor to his father-in-law, President Donald Trump. Together with Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, he forms Trump's leadership team. Kushner is said to be President Trump's most trusted advisor, showing "unwavering loyalty" to his father-in-law"

I like how they managed to seem wiki-journalistic about it but still drove in the reminder that his only qualification is that he's Trump's son-in-law ;D

"51 GB to install!"

That's too much tuna! Starcraft II was like 2GB or something wasn't it?

Here's the dog jihad thing I planned months ago but only just made :D

..I'm thinking of adding an explosion effect towards the camera and maybe adding the dogs head flying towards the camera... I'll see how that looks first.

I tried to do sequential masking on the dog's head to make it look like it was bouncing on the ground, but when I went to overlay the head portion I accidentally undid all the masking I'd just done by moving the masking window to a different part of the video (like, it wasn't showing the dog's head anymore).. so... nevermind that part ;D

"there's an autosave feature where it saves backups every x minutes if you want to try that"

Oh does it? :/
I noticed it was saving some kind of temporary output files, but I didn't try to access them. Also to avoid CPU drain I have it set so that it only saves the last few actions (like, I can only use undo on the last few actions) — sounds like undo would be different from those save files.. hmm. Next time! :D

..
"Keylight thing ... sounds handy"

It really is!! I had a bunch of little projects saved from months ago that I had abandoned because I didn't want to go frame to frame to edit them, but Keying>>Keylight automatically removes green-screen from videos and a "Channels">>"Set Channels" lets you remove black backgrounds from videos. And I was using "Masking" + "Masking">>"Feathering" to remove backgrounds from the dog's head because there wasn't much distinction from his head and the background.. Apparently rotoscoping would be better for that. Rotoscoping would still be frame-by-frame, but that's still better than my pre-AfterEffects method of separating the layers and photoshopping each layer..

Imgur has basically been unusable for April Fools Day (some kind of Humans vs. Zombies virtual game where peeps get points just by tagging things #TeamZombie and #TeamHuman). So here's a puppy waiting in surgery for its stuffed animal!

Wow yeah :D ... just leave a badger with the body and it'll do all the work... ;D

I actually learned how to rotoscope for that one! The helmet definitely helped. The motion is choppy because the lion kept moving its head (I was trying to cover its face), but it occurred to me that I can edit out the lion's head to get a better Hanks attachment
