Batman v Superman: Retro Style

(YouTube link)

The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice teaser trailer was barely out to the public before Bobby Burns began remixing it to feature Christopher Reeve and Adam West in their iconic superhero roles. The audio from the teaser remains the same. This makes it clear that while we can imagine Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill as having nefarious intentions underneath their public personas, it’s hard to look at our old-school heroes that way.

This could have starred George Reeves as Superman, but then you’d get into the color vs. black-and-white mixing problem. And the fact that only us old folks would have appreciated it. -via Time Newsfeed

Spider Species Named after Skeletor

(Images: Jürgen Otto, Filmation)

On the right is Skeletor, the main villain on the cartoon He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. On the left is Maratus skeletus, a species of peacock spider named in his honor. Madeline Girard, a graduate student at the University of California at Berkeley, discovered it and another that she calls "Sparklemuffin" in Australia. How did she come up the names? Girard explains in an interview for the blog of Berkeley's Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management:

Searching for and catching spiders feels a little bit like a game; my colleague and I started joking that it felt like we were playing Pokémon! Our first brainstorms with these two new species were trying to play off of that. We didn’t come up with a good Pokémon reference, but “Skeletorus” came up because the spider is black with white lines resembling a skeleton (and we liked the subtle reference to Skeletor from Masters of the Universe!). Sparklemuffin just kind of popped up one day. We wanted something a little bit glamorous, which led to sparkle…and muffin works because the shape of the spider (which is more narrow at the interior of the abdomen and then puffs out at the top) sort of resembles a muffin top. It started as our nickname, but people really love the name and it has made the species really popular!

The Photos That Changed The Boston Marathon Forever

(YouTube link)

Up until about 50 years ago, women were excluded from marathons, and indeed the longest footrace in the Olympics open to women then was 800 meters -less than a half-mile. In the early ‘60s, a few women snuck into marathons without registering, but in April of 1967, Kathrine Switzer of Syracuse University registered for the marathon under the name "K.V. Switzer." She started undetected, surrounded by fellow Syracuse runners. But at about the two-mile mark, she was spotted by a bus of reporters and officials, which included John Duncan Semple.

On Patriots’ Day 1967, “Mr. Boston Marathon” was a very angry man. Runner No. 261 had violated the sacred code of the institution that was his baby. She deserved to be punished – and if Cloney couldn’t do the job, then Jock Semple would. “This wasn’t just about me being a girl,” Switzer said. “Jock probably would have left me alone if I was just running along like Bobbi. It was the number that got him. I had made him look like a fool.”

Semple evaded Briggs and lunged at Switzer, grabbing at the cardboard bib pinned to her sweatshirt. “He was pulling at me and screaming, ‘Get the hell out of my race and give me that number,’” Switzer recalled. “Arnie was screaming at Jock, and then Tom smashed Jock out of the way.”

News photographer Harry Trask caught the assault on film, which changed the way people viewed women in sports. The sequence overshadowed the winners of the race, and showed the public that not only can woman run a marathon, but also refuse to be pushed away. Switzer finished the race in four hours and twenty minutes. Read the entire story at Deadspin.

Switzer was at the Boston Marathon yesterday, broadcasting the action as Caroline Rotich won the women’s division in 2:24:55.

Anime Recommendations and Open Thread

(Protect the Wall t-shirt on sale at the NeatoShop)

Every few months, I make anime viewing recommmendations and invite Neatorama readers to suggest their own and discuss any anime topics they want. Let's do it again!

The last time that I made anime recommendations, Aldnoah Zero rested at the top of the post. You know what? It does again! It's an extraordinary, soaring drama of love, war, courage, and treachery. Slaine Troyard--the man in the red coat--is the most fascinating character I've encountered in anime. After 24 episodes, the series is now complete and is now easily one of my three favorites.

Make Unicorn Pinata Cookies That Poop Tiny Rainbow Stars

Unicorn pooping stars

We've seen what we thought was unicorns poop and we've seen the sugary magic mounds that unicorns barf up, and now we get to see what really comes out of them (at least according to Elise Strachan of My Cupcake Addiction): TINY RAINBOW STARS!  

She's made an online tutorial and while the process is a bit labor intensive, I think you'll agree, the results are worth it. Watch and learn, watch and learn:

Whodunit: Three Weak Alibis

The following is a Whodunit by Hy ConradThese mysteries are from The Little Giant® Book of Whodunits by Hy Conrad and Matt LaFleur. Can you solve the mystery before you read the solution?

(Image credit: Daniel Schwen)

After two straight days of dark skies, the stationary front moved, bathing the city of Seattle in bright sunshine. The change seemed to put everyone in a good mood. Well, almost everyone. Fifteen minutes after the sun broke through, a gunshot rang out in the offices of Claxton & Brightman, attorneys-at-law.
As luck would have it, a trio of security guards just happened to be sitting in the Claxton & Brightman reception area. The guards barreled through an inner door and down the hall. The firm's senior partner, Henry Claxton, lay in a pool of blood in his office, most decidedly dead.

Without exchanging a word, the experienced guards broke up, looking for anyone who might have seen anything. Only three offices were occupied and each occupant had a story.

"I heard Claxton arguing with someone," Annette Goulding told guard number one. "I was reviewing court documents and I tried to mentally block out the sound."

The guard saw the red light blinking on Annette's voice-mail system and asked how long she'd been here in her office. "For nearly an hour," she replied. "When I'm busy I don't answer my phone."

Meanwhile, the second guard was talking to George Brightman, the firm's surviving partner. 'As you can see, Henry's office is way on the other side. I heard nothing until the gunshot. Then I opened my door and looked out into the hall. I heard running footsteps but didn't see anyone." The guard noticed that George's window was open, allowing a warm breeze to play through the blinds.

The third guard was with the firm's youngest lawyer, Ellen Youst. "I've been holed up here for hours, working on a speech I'm delivering tonight." She pointed to her computer, the screen awash in sunlight from the window. Ellen swiveled it so the guard could see. It certainly looked like a boring, lawyerly speech.

John Oliver’s Doomsday Video

(YouTube link)

John Oliver was not impressed with CNN’s Doomsday Video that Ted Turner had ready just in case, and made an effort to improve upon it. Oliver apparently does not care for marching bands. His alternative video for the end of the world features humanity's greatest hits, a few bloopers, and of course, cats, hosted by Martin Sheen. This is from the HBO show Last Week Tonight. -via Daily Picks and Flicks

An Arresting History of the Police Car

The following is an article from the book Uncle John’s Perpetually Pleasing Bathroom Reader.

Ever see a police car in your rearview mirror and think, “Hey! Where’d that come from?” If so, you probably weren’t wondering about the origin of the police car, but in case you were, here it is.

THE COMMISH

Frank Croul was the Police Commissioner of Detroit, Michigan, from 1909 to 1913. Then, as now, the city was the heart of the American auto industry. Ford, Studebaker, Packard, and Cadillac were all headquartered there, and as Croul saw an ever-increasing number of cars buzzing around the city streets, he wondered if they might have some use for the police.

He wasn’t the first person to contemplate such a possibility: In 1899, the city of Akron, Ohio, paid the Collins Buggy Company $ 2,400 ($ 65,000 today) for a battery-powered “paddy wagon,” complete with a stretcher, a cage for prisoners, electric headlights, and a gong. America’s first horseless police vehicle left a lot to be desired. Weighing 5,000 pounds, it had a top speed of just 16 mph and a range of 30 miles before the batteries had to be recharged. A year after it was built, an angry mob pushed it into the Ohio Canal during a race riot. Though the wagon was returned to service, the city never bothered to build another one.



IF AT FIRST YOU DON’T SUCCEED…

As Croul could tell from watching the traffic in front of his office, motor vehicles had improved a lot since 1899. Cars with newfangled gasoline engines had none of the problems with range that older electric cars had. Now that automakers had been building them in quantity for nearly a decade, gas-powered automobiles were becoming quite reliable. Some, like Ford’s Model T, were even affordable. Croul thought the time was right to buy a car for the Detroit Police Department. But when he asked the city for money to buy one, they turned him down. Croul was adament. He was so sure that “police cars” had a future, he bought the department a Packard with his own money, $ 5,000— more than $100,000 today.

ON A ROLL



Croul’s hunch proved to be correct: His Packard was a lot more useful than Akron’s electric paddy wagon. It was speedy and reliable, needed less care than a police horse, and it allowed police to get to the scene of an emergency faster than if they went on foot or in a horse-drawn wagon. After just four months, the city reimbursed Croul for the Packard and made plans to buy six more cars. These proved so economical to operate— less than half the cost of the horses and wagons they replaced— that by 1913, even the city dog catcher had his own truck. Detroit’s last horse-drawn vehicles were phased out forever.

Thirteen Horrifying Ideas America Had For Invading Cuba

Relations between the U.S. and Cuba seem to be getting back on track after more than fifty years of distrust and bitterness between the two nations, but not so long ago America had big plans for Cuba.

These plans generally involved intimidating, harassing and undermining the Cuban government into submission by using psychological warfare to turn Cubans against Castro.

The American government came up with all kinds of odd ideas, like doctoring photos to make Castro look like a fat glutton, terrorizing the country with sonic booms and multicolored rain, and dropping one way tickets to Mexico so Cuba's citizens could flee en masse.

Luckily global relations won out, and the American government decided not to carry out most of these poor spirited plans so they wouldn't come off looking like the bad guy.

Guy Secretly Records Album of Strangers at Guitar Center

Guitar Center

Have you ever gone to a Guitar Center just to try out your latest masterpiece on a brand new piece of equipment? Or, even better, let your kids? I didn't think so.

Well, over the course of three days, artist Noah Wall went to the Manhattan Guitar Center and surreptitiously recorded strangers --people like you and me and our children-- banging on drums, singing, hammering on keyboards, and emitting other loud cacophonous noises. He then made the recordings into an album. It's called Live at Guitar Center and it's almost unlistenable (free to download though), unless you really lean in and let it envelope your senses.

Listen...

Or, maybe it's just unlistenable, but simply brilliant otherwise. 

Wall describes his secret project:

March 27, 2015. It’s about 3 on Friday. School’s out and people are headed to Guitar Center Manhattan. I'm going there to do some field recording. A block away, I put on a pair of microphones you might find in a spy catalog. They look like earbud headphones but are actually binaural (stereo) mic’s that go in each ear. No one suspects I’m recording them - more like listening to music or something...

via Dangerous Minds

Is Noah Wall's album "Live at Guitar Center" unlistenable or brilliant?

Star Wars as an Old Norse Saga

(Photo: The Community-Pop Culture Group)

Dr. Jackson Crawford of UCLA is a scholar of Scandianvian studies and Old Norse literature. He has faithfully restored the Star Wars saga from its original form before George Lucas set to work on it. Star Wars began not as a movie trilogy, but an Old Norse saga composed a thousand years ago. You can find the entire document here. Skip to chapter 17 to read the beginning of what fans refer to as Episode IV. It includes this introduction of the legendary Viking warriors Han Solo and Chewbacca:

Hani had another great treasure, and that was his ship, which he had gotten when he won a swimming race against Landó Kalrissiansson at Kessel Island. This ship was called the Thousand Year Falcon; it was the fastest of ships.

A Frisian man accompanied Hólmgöngu-Hani; he was named Tsiubakka. He was the hairiest of men and very big, he had blackish-brown hair and was rather chubby-faced and broad across the brows. Tsiubakka did not know how to speak Norse, but he understood what men said, and Hani spoke Frisian.

Wild Chimpanzees Look Both Ways before Crossing the Road

(Image: New Scientist)

Small children may not be bright enough to look both ways before crossing a street, but many wild chimps are. Scientists observed a stretch of road in Uganda for 29 months. 112 chimpanzees crossed during that time. 92% of them checked for cars in at least one direction before crossing. Many checked both directions. Alpha makes were particularly vigilant, carefully organizing about 83% of the group crossings. The video below shows one alpha escorting a group across the road. He watches the progress of the stragglers while monitoring road traffic.
