New York Times stoops low, publishes article on puns.
Obviously the writer has never witnessed a game of 187.
187 Op-Ed Contributors walk into a bar, the bartender says, "We don't serve your kind here." The Op-Ed Contributors reply, "Why? Just because we love Op-Eds? It's not like we're a pedophile (read: Op-Ed-ophile)!"
Wikipedia has a really nice map of the time zone divisions around the world. Clicking the image will take you to the full 4779x1979 map. A number of interesting political-geographic choices have been made regarding time zones. China is huge, but keeps everything in the same time zone. Europe is pretty wide, but also keeps mostly in 1 time zone. The UK is close enough geographically to be in time with Europe, but is 1 hour off instead. India and some other countries are 30 minutes off the normal hours. It's an entertaining hodgepodge.
One of the gems of BBC2's Friday night line-up when I was in high school was the "celebrity game show" Shooting Stars. In fact, it was a part-scripted, part-improv comedy show hosted by Reeves and Mortimer, and was basically just half an hour of celebrities being made the target of cheap jokes. (It was also Matt Lucas's day job before Little Britain.)
YouTube is pretty thin on clips, but this one of Jarvis Cocker doing the 'final challenge' is pretty representative:
Some QuickTime movies contain embedded "HREF tracks" that will open a webpage in a browser window during the movie (or at the beginning or end). This is highly annoying, not to mention a possible security risk. I looked far and wide, but I couldn't find a way to stop QuickTime from opening website links embedded in movies it plays.
The fix is to set movies to open in the excellent VLC media player instead of in Quicktime. VLC will play the movie properly, but ignore any links inside of it. On a Mac you can do this by doing "Get Info" on a movie file and changing the "Open With" selection box to be VLC. Then click the "Change All..." button below it.
