Everyone feels something when they're in a really good starry place a really good starry place on a really good starry night and they look up and see this: Advertisement Some people stick with the traditional, feeling struck by the epic beauty or blown away by the insane scale of the universe. Personally, I go for the old "existential meltdown followed by acting weird for the next half hour." But everyone feels something. Physicist Enrico Fermi felt something too—"Where is everybody?" A really starry sky seems vast—but all we're looking at is our very local neighborhood. On the very best nights, we can see up to about 2,500 stars (roughly one hundred-millionth of the stars in our galaxy), and almost all of them are less than 1,000 light years away from us (or 1% of the diameter of the Milky Way). So what we're really looking at is this: When confronted with the topic of stars and galaxies, a question that tantalizes most humans is, "Is there other intelligent life out … [Read more...] about The Fermi Paradox: Where the Hell Are the Other Earths?
Since 1933 when the board game first appeared, Monopoly’s tokens have changed and evolved over the years to reflect the times.

1. Homicide: Life On The Streets Shattering the mold for TV credits, Homicide kicked off each show—at least in the early seasons—with a surreal, impressionistic montage showing extreme angles of Baltimore row houses, police-station desks, and one metaphorically vicious dog, all set to a soundtrack of electronic shredding and high, rapid percussion. By the time the cast list comes around, the image totally breaks down, reduced to blurry streaks of light, before ending on a picture of a homicide-department door. Has the world gone topsy-turvy? Is life flashing before some victim's eyes? Or is it all just another day of mayhem in Balmer? Whatever the credits mean, they get viewers hyped-up and nervous before the story even gets underway.

The Sopranos A3's growling blues tune "Woke Up This Morning" plays while we ride with Tony Soprano from Manhattan (where the NYPD wears blue and the criminal-justice system has two separate yet equally important parts), … [Read more...] about Inventory: 22 TV Opening-Credit Sequences That Fit Their Shows Perfectly
Looks like that Raiderettes lawsuit was just the beginning. Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader Alexa Brenneman has filed her own class-action lawsuit against the team for allegedly violating federal employment laws. As with the Raiders and Ravens, the juiciest reading here is the list of rules handed down to cheerleaders, governing their appearance and comportment. To be an NFL cheerleader, it seems, is to be simultaneously sexed-up and infantilized. Advertisement Let's start with the panties and boobs, both of which are closely regulated by the team: No panties are to be worn under practice clothes or uniform, not even thong panties. Wear pantyhose to match skin tone (L'eggs). No Danskins/Dance type tights. No control top at practices or games. No exposed skin at ankles — pantyhose must extend down into socks. No slouching breasts. Support as needed. Black or nude seamless bra mandatory for games. (No lace) The appearance section also prohibits gum chewing while … [Read more...] about Rules For Ben-Gals Cheerleaders: “No Panties,” “No Slouching Breasts”
