Film stuff

How does a fire breathing dragon produce fire?

hmm...when he isn't lighting his belches, is he causing global warming?
Cow Belches as a source of global warming

and what is the "fart tax" aka "belch tax" on Smaug?
and it's not only dragons who produce methane: Starlet's new "diet" promoting lentil eating will pollute the planet....via flatulance, another major source of global warming...

Flatulence-producing foods are typically high in certain polysaccharides, (especially oligosaccharides such as inulin). Those foods include beans, lentils, dairy products, onions, garlic, spring onions, leeks, turnips, rutabagas, radishes, sweet potatoes, potatoes, cashews, Jerusalem artichokes, oats, wheat, and yeast in breads. Cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts and other cruciferous vegetables that belong to the genus Brassica are commonly reputed to not only increase flatulence, but to increase the pungency of the flatus.[citation needed]

The Chinese icebreaker that went to rescue the global warming specialist who were making a documentary about the loss of ice in Antarctica due to global warming...has gotten stuck in ice too.

ironically, the article describes this as "... a trip...aimed at emulating a 1911-1914 expedition by the Australian explorer, Sir Douglas Mawson", which shows how the MSM is not bothering to report that it was supposed to prove global warming by measuring the loss of ice, and included lots of reporters to trumpet their "findings"...of course, they ended up a laughing stock by proving the exact opposite.

So who was paying the bills? And, more importantly, who is paying the cost of their rescue?

and to make it worse, it diverted funds from the real scientists working down there. Real scientists, as defined by a person who if the data doesn't support the theory, you throw out the theory and start over, as opposed to this group, who had a predetermined conclusion they intended to find.

Australian update here.
How much is this costing?$Au 400 000...not counting the disruption of delivering supplies to the Australian scientists.

and the cost of the rescue: 

For those of you following The White Queen soap opera, TeaAtTrianon links to a Nerdalicious post on Henry VII's queen, Elizabeth of York.

No, I stopped watching that series for the same reason I stopped watching the Game of Thrones (which is loosely inspired by the War of the Roses): Too bloody.  One wishes to get some of these folks and shake them and say: SETTLE DOWN AND SMELL THE ROSES...because in their lust for power, it is mainly the poor people who suffered, so I have little sympathy for their shenanigans.

why Montie Python will never mock Islam.


 Atlas Obscura reports that One Time Square, famous in many stories and movies, is now nearly empty...
and the dropping of the ball on New Year's eve? A publicity story for the NYTimes who owned the building back then...started when fireworks were banned for being dangerous.
