A Big But and an Even Bigger Dinosaur

Apr 17, 2012

A big But? Yeah. I know. I spelled it wrong. If that’s what you were thinking. I’m thinking of Pee-wee’s Big Adventure. He had been dropped off at a roadside diner by Large Marge – a spectral truck driver.

C’mon, Simone, let’s talk about your big 'But'”. Now, while they were chatting, they were looking out at the night sky – through the mouth of a large dinosaur.

'World Without Mind': How Tech Companies Pose An Existential Threat

Journalist Franklin Foer worries that we're all losing our minds as big tech companies infiltrate every aspect of our lives. In his new book, World Without Mind: The Existential Threat of Big Tech , Foer compares the way we feel about technology now to the way people felt about pre-made foods, like TV dinners, when they were first invented. "And we thought that they were brilliant because they did away with pots and pans — we didn't have to go to the store to go shopping every day — and then...

'Monkey Selfie' Lawsuit Ends With Settlement Between PETA, Photographer

Back in 2011, Naruto was just an anonymous macaque in the jungles of Indonesia. On one particular day, however, the photogenic primate happened upon a wildlife photographer's camera and snapped a "monkey selfie." Whether the act was intentional or a quite-too-literal instance of monkeying around, only the grinning primate knows for certain.
