-- If 72 is the new 30...two questions, what if you don't make it to 72, and if I'm 33, how old am I really? Human longevity has improved so rapidly over the past century that 72 is the new 30, scientists say.
-- I like Seth McFarlane's tweetabout not doing the Oscars again! Yes, I like Star Trek, a lot, but he's right.
"My cat said the show went well," he later posted, alongside a photo.
He also Tweeted: "The Oscars is basically the Kobayashi Maru test."
The test MacFarlane is referring to is a no-win scenario simulation exercise that is assigned to Starfleet Academy cadets in "Star Trek," as seen in the 1982 film "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan" and the 2009 "Star Trek" reboot, which stars Chris Pine as Captain James T. Kirk, played by William Shatner in the original 1960s series and films. Shatner made a remote appearance at the Oscars.
-- The Yahoo! memo ending telecommuting is getting hammmmmmmered all over the Web. When I tell people that I work at home, they usually assume one of two things—that I’m un- or underemployed and just biding my time until I get a real job, or that I possess a monkish, single-minded devotion to work that they suggest is required for successful telecommuting. Neither is true. Instead, I’ve realized that, once you learn how to do it, working at home is superior in almost every way. It allows me to be better at my job and at my life—to be a more productive employee and a not-terrible husband and dad.
-- A rare(realllllly?) shark fatality in the waters around New Zealand. Police said they fired shots at the shark after a swimmer was fatally bitten on Wednesday at Muriwai beach, about 25 miles north-west of Auckland, one of many beaches dotted along the North Island's west coast popular for its surfing.
-- Guns for Beyonce tix in New York. If hip-hop music manager Michael “Blue” Williams, the head of Family Tree Entertainment, has his way, New Yorkers will be able to trade guns for Beyonce tickets.
That’s part of Williams’ plan for a private-sector gun buyback that he’s pitched to the New York Police Department, the New York Daily Newsreports.
“We want to get as many guns off the streets, and if this works, we’d like to support it,” Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly told the Daily News.
-- I see a subtle difference in her eyes, and her teeth. You look, was it Miss Teen Delaware in the porno? Damn. Damn. Damn. A lot of coincidences?
-- No Amy Poehler and Tina Fey as Oscar hosts next year? Is it a possibility that you and Amy Poehler could wind up hosting the Oscars next year? I don't know how that works with NBC, since the Golden Globes were on the same network as both of your shows. Can you two go host the Oscars on ABC if you wanted to?
No, you can. But I just feel like that gig is so hard. Especially for, like, a woman -- the amount of months that would be spent trying on dresses alone ... no way.
-- Why women make up names for guys they date. Sometimes the nicknames are creative: The Crusader (super religious with a wild side in the bed), HGB (short for Hot Gym Boy), and The Meatball (round, stubby, and Italian). One woman told me, "one of my favorites is the guy my friend is dating now—he was formerly a bit of a slut, so we call him TRW, for The Repentant Whore." Then there's the self-explanatory: Hot Hat-Wearing Balding Guy, or Formerly Fat Chris. And the more generic ones that still serve their purpose: The Writer, The Brit, The Professor, SoCal.
-- By the off chance you're a porn star, or considering the field, Larry Flynt has 6 tips for you. STAY AWAY FROM AGENTS. For people who are in legitimate acting careers, agents are good. They can help people. But if you’re in adult, and you’re interested in being in the business, the agencies tend to use you.
