Bale is at it again this week


Who puts the MAN in Batman? Not George Clooney, according to professional growler Christian Bale. Bale tells WSJ magazine this week that Clooney, who basically enacted laws in Italy to protect his wedding from the paparazzi, should "shut up" and "stop whining" about privacy.

Bale explains:

It doesn't matter that [Clooney] talks about [the paparazzi]. It's like, "Come on, guys, just shut up. Just get on with it and live your lives and stop whining about it." I prefer not to whine about it.

After calling Cloons a whiner, Bale goes on to say that the paparazzi are out kill his own "dignity" and "humanity." So.

-This coming from a man who looses it onset

-Is he just out to attack all the actors who ever played batman? is Michael Keaton next?

Sony Hacked by Kim Jong-Un???

Well maybe not directly but,
Five movie screeners from Sony Pictures have made their way onto torrent sites after the studio’s computer system was hacked earlier this week.

These include unreleased titles “Annie,” “Mr. Turner,” “Still Alice,” and “To Write Love On Her Arms,” as well as World War II drama “Fury.” The latter has been in theaters for over six weeks, but is now the second most popular pirated film with more than 1.2 million downloads as of 11AM on Sunday, notes Variety.

The leak is most likely related to the hacking last week of one of Sony Pictures’ servers, which caused all computers used by the studio to go down. An image with the words “Hacked by #GOP” (which stands for Guardians of Peace, not the Republican Party) appeared on employees’ computer screens, along with a demand for access to financial documents.

The studio is also reportedly investigating a link between the attack and North Korea, as retaliation for “The Interview,” a comedy film about a CIA plot to assassinate Kim Jong-Un.

In an email to The Verge, a person claiming to be one of the hackers responsible for the attack said they had been aided by Sony employees.

An Update on the Avatar Movies

The director told Empire magazine in an interview that he's hard at work on scripts for three sequels to Avatar, the most successful movie in history (unadjusted for inflation).

Cameron, whose credits also include Aliens and Titanic, declined in the interview to share plot details following the end of first movie, in which (spoiler alert if you're one of the several hundred people who haven't seen it yet) the native Na'vi expel the corporate evildoers back to Earth.

“I can tell you one thing about them,” Cameron told the magazine. “They’re gonna be bitchin’. You will shit yourself with your mouth wide open.”

Cameron split the writing between Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (writers on Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Josh Friedman (The Black Dahlia) and Shane Salerno (Savages).

"We met for seven months and we white-boarded out every scene in every film together,” Cameron told Empire. "I didn’t assign each writer which film they were going to work on until the last day. I knew if I assigned them their scripts ahead of time, they’d tune out every time we were talking about the other movie.”

Jaffa, Friedman and Silver have been assigned to write the second and third sequels, while Salerno is focused on the fourth film, according to IMDb.com.

Cameron said he toyed with the idea of shooting the sequels in 60 frames per second, but instead committed to 48 fps — the same rate used by Peter Jackson's Hobbit movies. Films traditionally screen at 24 fps.

Pizza Hut wants to read your mind

Ordering pizza by thinking and speaking words is so last century. Pizza Hut is now testing technology that allows diners to order within seconds, using only their eyes. The future!

Calling it "the world's first subconscious menu," the pizza giant has since October been testing a special eye-tracking tablet with some of the diners of its 300 locations across the U.K. The digital menu shows diners a canvas of 20 toppings and builds their pizza, from one of 4,896 combinations, based on which toppings they looked at longest.

The menu, built by Swedish eye-tracking firm Tobii Technology, is the product of six months of retina-scanning development and "psychological research," according to Pizza Hut, which is testing it for now only in the U.K. A potential expansion into the United States could be in the cards, based on how well the pilot system works.

Digital E-Scouts

One of America's finest food traditions is about to get more convenient than ever: Girl Scouts have been given the go ahead to sell their cookies online.

The tradition, which is now almost 100 years old, churns out over 200 million boxes of deliciousness per year—but until now it's been a solely offline affair. Now, spurred by the girls themselves, the organization has given the nod to allow the cookies to be sold via mobile apps and personalized websites, reports the Boston Globe. The only catch: scout councils and guardians have to agree to the Girl Scouts in question going digital.

It's not intended to make the conventional sales of the cookies redundant, but rather bolster sales of the boxes, which cost between $3.50 and $5 a pop. It's certainly good news for cookie eaters, who will be able to order boxes of sweet treats and have them delivered straight to their door.

The first spacecraft to ever visit Pluto is set to wake up on Dec. 6 in preparation for its midsummer rendezvous with the solar system’s most famous dwarf planet.

The New Horizons spacecraft has been speeding toward Pluto for almost nine years, covering 2.9 billion miles. To conserve energy and general wear and tear, the spacecraft has gone into intermittent hibernation, often for months at a time, slumbering for a total of five years.

But now it’s go time.

The spacecraft’s systems are programmed to start up again on Dec. 6 at 12:00 p.m. PST/3:00 p.m. EST. An hour and a half later, it will send a signal back to Earth confirming that it’s awake. But because it’s so far away, it will take more than four hours for the message to reach mission control—around 6:30 p.m. PST/9:30 p.m. EST. Mission controllers will then take six weeks to check all of the spacecraft’s systems and prepare its approach toward Pluto, which starts in earnest on January 15, 2015.

When New Horizons launched in January 2006, Pluto was still considered a full-fledged planet, the only one not to have been visited by any spacecraft. But later that year the International Astronomical Union vote to reclassify Pluto as a dwarf planet.

As it flies by Pluto, it will save all of its images and measurements onboard before sending them back to Earth (there will be so much data that it will take until late 2016 to finish transferring). If something happens to the spacecraft, all that information could be lost.


The rendezvous with Pluto will last six months, and New Horizons will map the geology, temperature, and composition of Pluto and its moons, and analyze the Plutonian atmosphere.

New pill makes your farts smell like chocolate

You’re gonna eat a lot of food over the next month, which means

you’re gonna pass a lot of gas.

But thanks a 65-year-old Frenchman called Christian Poinchevaln, your gas can smell a little sweeter.

He spent the past eight years dedicating his life to creating sweeter smelling gas.

His new line of digestion pills promise to turn your “wind” into chocolate-scented goodness.

He says he came up with the idea after a dinner with friends.

He claims everyone was passing gas and nearly suffocating each other with the horrible smell.

So he went on a mission to “fix flatulence forever.”

His pills sell for about $12.50 a bottle.


Jason Puckett Caught Slipping Cow Tongue Into Pants

DELAND, Fla. (AP) — Police in Florida say a Wal-Mart shopper denied slipping $35 worth of beef tongue into his pants, but the telltale tongue told a different story.

DeLand police say 44-year-old Jason Puckett was charged last week with misdemeanor theft after a Wal-Mart security guard spotted him slipping two packages of tongue into his waistband.

When the guard confronted Puckett at the store's exit, Puckett denied stealing the packages and said he had put them back on a shelf.

But the guard told authorities Puckett then removed the tongue from his pants when he didn't think he was being watched and ran from the store.

Jail records show Puckett remained in jail Tuesday. Bail was set at $2,500.

A public defender assigned to Puckett did not immediately return a call seeking comment.


Carjackers Thwarted By Car's Stick Shift

HOUSTON (AP) — Authorities say two teenagers attempting to carjack a vehicle in Houston were foiled by a stick shift.

The pair held the motorist at gunpoint last weekend and demanded that he tell them how to drive the vehicle. After the driver provided a few instructions, the teens ordered him out of the vehicle. He then called police.

A brief police chase ensued. Stefan Happ, an officer for the University of Texas at Houston, told KPRC-TV (http://bit.ly/1tJoDw9 ) the teens "had issues operating the vehicle."

The pair opted to flee on foot and were later apprehended.

The suspects are 15 and 17 years old. They were taken into custody. The older boy was charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.

Homeless Man Steals Ambulance To ‘See Some Pole Dancing’, Is Thwarted Before Reaching Titty Bar

A homeless man in Detroit wanted to see some taters, but being homeless he didn’t own a car, and public transportation wasn’t available. Instead of just letting his carnal urges subside he did the best thing he could think of: he stole and ambulance and drove to the strip club.

This is not a story with a ceremonial happy ending (in the champagne room) though, as the homeless man was apprehended by police on the way to the strip club. Furthermore, if he had made it to the strip club he was intending to go to, called the ‘Booby Trap’, he’d have made it there only to find out that musty old clap trap went out of business ages ago.

From The Oakland Press:

Frustrated with a lack of public transportation and in desperate need to reach a certain destination, a homeless man stole an ambulance from a hospital in Pontiac on Sunday.

“He told the deputy he was hoping to go to the Booby Trap to see some pole dancing,” Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said.

“You can’t make this up.”

The man, who hoped to make it to the Detroit strip club but was stopped by police in Sterling Heights, was asked why he took the ambulance.

“Apparently he said there was no public transportation available,” Bouchard said.

“Again, you can’t make this up.”

Deputies learned of the theft around 11 p.m. Sunday, when they were dispatched to the hospital in the 50 block of Perry. The ambulance had been parked at the entrance after a patient was transported to the hospital, and it was unlocked and had a cell phone inside.

Authorities located the vehicle after tracing the cell phone to an area in Sterling Heights, and Sterling Heights police officers pulled the vehicle over and arrested the suspect, who was cooperative. The ambulance was turned over to STAR EMS.

The suspect has mental health issues, according to the sheriff’s office.

Literally the ONLY shocking this about this story is that it took place in Detroit, and not in the great state of Florida.

When I first saw headlines for this I was 99.9% certain it was Florida before I even clicked, but much to my dismay ‘crazy’ isn’t something that’s localized to America’s Penis, the Sunshine State.


School Playground Evacuated Due To 'Aggressive' Squirrel

A tail of terror or a nutty lie?

Multiple UK publications reported last week that a school playground had to be evacuated earlier this month after an “unusually aggressive” gray squirrel became too much of a threat

The Watford Observer reported that a rampaging squirrel went so far as to scratch a staff member at Chater Infants School, a primary school located in Watford, Hertfordshire.

A statement on the school's website, however, says "no squirrel has ’caused havoc’ or ‘terrified’ children at Chater Infant School" and accuses the Observer of “greatly exaggerating” the event:

We did have a curious and bold squirrel in the playground during Golden Time a few weeks ago; I would like to assure you that the children were not at risk. If there had been a serious concern I would have written to you immediately. The teachers and I spoke to the children in assembly about how to behave around pets and other animals.

There is no substance to this article, it is poorly written and greatly exaggerates an occurrence in the playground . I am sorry if this has caused you any concern.

Nevertheless, both the Observer and The Evening Standard cite head teacher Amrit Bal-Richards as confirming some sort of squirrel-related incident.

"We did have an incident where we had a squirrel,” Bal-Richards said, according to the Watford Observer. The publication says she noted that aggression is “very uncommon” in squirrels and that the school would “be monitoring the situation.”

Whatever happened, no one has seen the critter since.
