A blast from the past

In 1950, with the Cold War in full swing, Soviet journalists were looking desperately for something to help them fill their anti-American…

This Easter, enjoy a very special Bunny, Albrecht Dürer's masterpiece 'Hare', in ultra high resolution at: http://goo.gl/D6oPMQ thanks to the Albertina Museum.
#Zoom in! Can you see what the reflection in the hare’s right eye represents? #art #HappyFriday #Easter #gigapixel

Net neutrality is not that complicated.
Is this a case of intellectual dishonesty?
Political cartoonists, as satirists, routinely offer some of the most incisive commentary on the issues of the day with just a few words. Of course, it all falls apart if there's a fundamental...

Another win for science.
The US Department of Agriculture has decided to deregulate two new apple varieties genetically engineered to resist browning, The New York Times reports. That means the apples, which will be...

WHY WOULD I WANT TO WEAR MORMON UNDERWEAR IF I’M NOT MORMON?
...
* Your wife has a thing for Mormon boys, and you’re trying to satisfy her needs
* You want to dress like/feel/be Ann or Mitt Romney
...
The company was founded by a formon (former Mormon) named Ann Jackson who was married as a teenager and has since divorced and left the faith -- she'll sell "temple garments" (AKA "magic Mormon underwear") to anyone who wants...

Shame...

I didn't think one could make Americans hunker down and shut up so easily.
Free speech must be defended even when the speech at issue is a sure-to-be-shitty comedy vehicle starring Seth Rogen and James Franco, poking fun at tired ethnic stereotypes.

Add it all up, and the ruble has fallen something like 22 percent against the dollar the past month, with 11 percent of that coming on Monday alone. As you can see below, the Russian ruble has fallen even further than the Ukrainian hryvnia or Brent oil has this year. The only asset, and I use that word lightly, that's done worse than the ruble's 50 percent fall is Bitcoin, which is a fake currency...

Now, go and subsidize the occupied Crimea and pay for the ongoing invasion of the Ukraine!
Russia's central bank just hiked interest rates from 10.5 to 17 percent to try to stop the ruble, which is down 50 percent on the year, from falling any further.

Just when I thought it couldn't get any weirder ...

Both funny and strange.
This North Korean hacking business has turned out to be an extremely amusing way to promote a movie. I hope it does well at the box office. It is certainly primed to be a nice money-maker once it  hits the VOD circuit.
Now that Sony Pictures has allowed The Interview to premiere on Christmas Day — in select theaters, at least — we've heard nothing from exuberance at everyone involved in this story, from Seth...

Amazing selection of spices, legumes, pasta, cheeses and olives. Lots of cool and rare (for Seattle) culinary items.
