Hologram Shown Off in Hong Kong

I'd like to believe it's real, but I'll wait for more sources to report on it, or until I see it in person.

That flickering due to synching problem between the rotation and the smartphone camera is pretty good, but I have to wonder about that woman's ability to hold the device so very still despite turning her head to look at someone standing next to her during the demo a few times like at 1:27 into the video (though how some of the animations jump around helps to hide this problem). MAYBE the rotational momentum would help to prevent SOME movement of the spinning "projector". She doesn't appear to be wearing any sort of brace to help hold it in place.

ALSO the guy with smartphone held his camera very still BUT only while the projector was working. The view wanders SLIGHTLY during the projection but that video only has larger movements when the projector was NOT fully working (like during spin-up/-down). Perhaps that is only coincidence.

And "hologram" is NOT the right word. This is merely a variation upon a flat-screen TV with only a change in how the pixels are projected "into" the air. To view this along the plane of rotation would be like trying to watch TV from a seat along the plane of that TV.

That looks intriguing.

The presenter is not bad. Still a bit too much arm waving and gesturing but not as bad as most amateur YouTube presenters.

I've had occasion to waste time watching some other youtube videos and they don't even have human voices anymore. They are unwatchable.

BBC journalist gets his ear wax eaten out by a grub.

NSFW due to language and a flash of a penis. This was the way that members of the Korowai tribe of Papua used to clean their ear canals.

George Takei talks about his experience on "The Twilight Zone". The YouTube video is at the link.

Takei's appearance was during the last (1963-64) season of "The Twilight Zone". In "The Encounter" he played a Japanese-American gardener who began to talk then argue with an American WWII vet (played by Neville Brand). The climax involved a "haunted" samurai sword.

Part of the story was Takei's character's admission that his Japanese-American father had set signals which helped guide the Japanese Navy planes to Pearl Harbor. The Japanese-American community and historians vehemently complained about that fiction, which was at least part of the reason "The Encounter" was never re-aired even during the series' long syndication, though it can be found on SOME DVD sets. That video of Takei is from one of those more inclusive sets.

For whatever reasons the apparent link to the full episode does not work for me, but I found this which has the intro (up to Serling's narration) and the ending of "The Encounter".

The "WTF are you doing" expression at 0:35 is priceless.

Technicolor fragments from the 1920s found attached to other films.

What had happened is that the film projectors needed a bit of leader added to the starts and ends of a reel, so instead of purposefully making some blank film what some of the studios did was cut up reels of old films and attached those bits to their newer films. An archivist working for the British Film Institute discovered these and started to collect these fragments.

Some fragments are from film tests (so were not for distribution) while others are from now lost films.

interview with a (japanese) porn star

she's actually quite articulate, and it's completely without titillation or sexiness ... the life she describes does not sound fun

for instance the popular girls are shooting pretty much every single day, maybe they get two days off per month

it's even worse for the guys

quite interesting, actually

At Dutch "safari park" family gets out of car near some cheetahs.

NSFW due to language. Narrative and captions in Dutch (I think) though unneeded just to see what happened. Fortunately no one got hurt (but it was close near the end).

US Army sergeant cut the straps on 3 Humvees being airdropped with predictable results. YouTube video at link.

And WTF? He was demoted to private and was dismissed from the Army. Not even a dishonorable discharge--much less a prison sentence--for deliberately sabotaging part of this exercise and destroying over a half-million dollars of equipment?
