Dick Smith R.I.P.

Dick Smith, „Godfather of Makeup“, ist im stolzen Alter von 92 Jahren gestorben. Der Mann ist vor allem für seine Masken in Godfather und dem Exorzisten bekanntgeworden, für seine Verwandlung von Murray Abraham in den 73jährigen Antonio Salieri in Amadeus gewann er dann 1984 einen Oscar. Ich kenne den Mann vor allem für seine Arbeit in Altered States, Scanners und mit seinen Masken halbvergammelter Wasserleichen in Ghost Story hat er mir damals eine Scheißangst eingejagt. Sein DIY Handbook of Monster Makeup hatte ich vor hundert Jahren mal komplett bei Flickr hochgeladen. RIP Dick.

Dick Smith, the renowned “Godfather of Makeup”, has died aged 92. Smith was a legend in the field, pioneering an astonishing number of different techniques and trickery in-camera. He’s best known for his work on an impressive list of classics, including Taxi Driver, The Godfather, The Exorcist and Amadeus. Indeed, it’s a tribute to his talents that – The Exorcist aside – audiences often forget that these films had such extraordinary special effects and makeup, all hiding in plain sight.

Wir sind Weltmeister des Penis Enlargement

Laut Statistik der International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery lassen sich rund 8 von 100k Männern in Deutschland den Piephahn vergrößern, das ist mit einigem Abstand die globale Spitzenposition. Laut meinen Stats habe ich hier rund 300k Uniques im Monat. An die 24 Jungs da draußen: Viel Spaß mit dem neuen Spielzeug!

According to the latest data release by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), there were 2,786 operations estimated to have taken place in Europe’s biggest country – which is more than in any other nation. The organisation estimates that there were 15,414 of these operations performed worldwide so almost one in five of those seeking to add centimetres to their member were in Germany.

It is not a huge amount of German men deciding to have an intimate nip and tuck – it’s roughly eight out of every 100,000 adult males in the country. However, only Venezuela, where four out of every 100,000 adult males have a penis enlargement operation, comes anywhere near close to the German rate.

Boko Haram ‘killed by Mystical Bees and Snakes possessed by Ghosts’:

Neulich haben die Hexen aus Nigeria den Mördern von Boko Haram den Krieg erklärt und anscheinend erzielen sie tatsächlich Erfolge: „Members of terror group Boko Haram have allegedly been arrested in Nigeria after fleeing a forest to escape deadly bites from ‘mystical bees’ and ‘mysterious snakes’. […] the captured insurgents claimed the creatures — possessed by ghosts — had killed many Boko Haram members. ‘We were told that the aggrieved people who had suffered from our deadly mission — including the ghosts of some of those we killed — are the ones turning into the snake and bees,’ one militant told Vanguard. ‘Our leaders fled, too.’“ (Danke Konrad!)

Backwards Religious Nuts listening to Led Zeppelins Stairway to Heaven forwards

Es ist ein bekanntes Hobby von religiösen Spinnern, Led Zeppelins Stairway To Heaven rückwärts zu hören und da satanische Botschaften reinzuinterpretieren. Der Mumpitz ergibt aber plötzlich sehr viel Sinn, wenn man das Rückwärts-Video wiederum rückwärts abspielt. Youtube: Backwards televangelists listening…

Marijuana Cuisine at Hunter S. Thompsons House

Vice Munchies hat auf der Owl Farm in Hunter S. Thompsons Zuhause ein Marijuana-Diner veranstaltet, dort jede Menge Weed-Speisen verputzt und Joints dazu geraucht. Mit dabei unter anderem Thompsons Witwe und Gründer der National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. Nice!

Pulling this off required first and foremost the permission and kind hospitality of Anita Thompson, Hunter Thompson’s widow, who resides at Owl Farm and keeps a close eye on her dearly departed husband’s literary legacy. Then, to handle the culinary and scientific feat of preparing a multi-course marijuana-infused meal of the highest order, we partnered Chef Chris Lanter of Aspen hotspot Cache Cache with cannabis-infusion expert Tamar Wise, former head of science at the world’s largest marijuana edibles company.

In all, we infused four different oils, using four different ganja strains, for use in four different preparations (three savory and one dessert), with a joint of each strain set aside for smoking.

Whistles for Whistleblowers von Reporter ohne Grenzen

Schicke Aktion von Reporter ohne Grenzen: Whistleblower-Whistles für ‘nen guten Zweck.

Edward Snowden, Chelsea (formerly Bradley) Manning and Katharine Gun are just few examples of whistleblowers that recently have been wrongfully accused, threatened and persecuted for sounding the

alarm on wrongdoings and corruption that put their fellow human beings at risk. If whistleblowers and the reporters who work with them don’t receive protection, the future of investigative journalism and the freedom of information is in danger. But with your help there’s hope.

By purchasing a Whistle for Whistleblowers you’re supporting Reporters Without Borders in their work for the freedom of information.

Devil texts failed Exorcist:

Ein Exorzist hat bei der Teufelsaustreibung eines Mädchens versagt und jetzt kriegt er SMS’ von Dämonen: „Parish priest Father Marian Rajchel from Jaroslaw, a town in south-eastern Poland, said he started getting the texts after carrying out an exorcism on a teenage girl. But he said that the attempt to drive out the devil from the girl’s soul clearly failed, and that it was now using the teenager to attack him by using mobile phone messages.“

I don’t wanna be buried on a Space Semetary:

Memorial space flights for four-legged loved ones will start this fall by a Houston company that already sends human remains into space. Celestis Inc. on Wednesday announced Celestis Pets. Rockets carrying cremated remains of dogs and cats are touted as a way for owners to ‘celebrate the life of their pet.’“ (via Arbroath)

Illegal Prime Numbers

[update] Ah, fuck, Repost. Damn.

Ich wusste, dass es „illegale“ Zahlen gibt, vor allem binäre Schreibweisen von Code, der DRMs umgeht oder Krypto-Keys beschreibt. Ich wusste allerdings nicht, dass es auch „illegale“ Primzahlen gibt, die erste wurde 2001 entdeckt und die binäre Schreibweise enthält Code für ein Code zum Knacken eines DVD-Kopierschutzes.

One of the earliest illegal prime numbers was generated in March 2001 by Phil Carmody. Its binary representation corresponds to a compressed version of the C source code of a computer program implementing the DeCSS decryption algorithm, which can be used by a computer to circumvent a DVD’s copy protection.

Hier die „illegale“ Zahl:
