Guten Morgen Deutschland Gotham. It's Wednesday.

  • This is a real bum out... Mr. Wizard has died. Don Herbert (a.k.a. Mr. Wizard) who introduced generations of young viewers to the joys of science has died, he was 89. He had bone cancer. I loved me some Mr. Wizard. I always wanted to meet him behind the old school house after dark and blow sh*t up. When "Late Night with David Letterman" debuted in 1982, Mr. Wizard was among the first-night guests. Mr. Wizard really tried to bust the image of scientists and that science wasn't just for nerds in laboratories.

  • Eminem and Mariah Carey just can't seem to stop griping about each other. Eminem's new album is mining his fling six years ago with Mariah for material. There is more than one track that goes into really specific, intimate detail about what went on between Em and Mariah. In fact, Mimi's so mad about the new tracks that she's asked the head of her record label to intervene, and wants to sue Eminem for slander. Waaaaaaaah.

  • Corruptors of the World Unite! ... Iran's parliament voted in favour of a bill that could lead to death penalty for persons convicted of working in the production of pornographic movies. The hysterical term, "corruptor of the world" is taken from the hysterical Quran, the Muslims' holy book, and ranks among the highest on the scale of an individuals criminal offenses. Under Iran's Islamic Penal Code, being a porn star carries a death penalty.

  • Et tu, Brute!? ... Did you know that when you search for something on Google, a record of what you've searched for can be saved for up to 2 YEARS!? Officials are worried that data from Google searches and cookies can be used to identify individuals and create profiles of their political opinions, religious beliefs and sexual preferences. Sort of like keeping a record of what library books you borrow or whatever. The privacy issue is in danger of becoming a real embarrassment to Google.

  • D00d sum guy just got kild LOL snd a cop ;) The LAPD announced plans 2 improve the city's 911 system, sayin callers in the future will be able 2 use text messages, photos n even video from cellphones 2 seek emergency assistance ROFL LOL S.O.S. !!!!

  • Forget Paris and the Bahamas. What about the Bronx? If the borough is the last place you'd think to spend your vacation, TV commercials coming soon to a screen near you will try to convince you it's not such a bad idea. The series of TV commercials are part of a marketing campaign called "We're Talking the Bronx.'' Yeah, I just bought a cottage on Mosholu Parkway. It's breathtaking.

  • SONY got called to the principals office in England... I guess theres some video game called "Resistance: Fall of Man" where theres a shoot-out in a Manchester cathedral. "This is a sensitive topic," SONY said, "Many historical buildings are used in entertainment such as movies, including Godzilla and the Tokyo Tower and King Kong in Manhattan." The church has demanded an apology, saying that SONY never axed for permission to use the cathedral in question. I luvre the word 'cathedral', it's so perfect for what it defines.

  • Who knew? The Dalai Lama was down with the Crocodile Hunter... Delicately handling a Burmese python and petting a stoned koala, the spiritual head of the Buddhist world visited the zoo of late Steve Irwin and addressed a sold-out crowd at its open-air, arena-style "Crocoseum." The DL thanked Irwin's family for its dedication to wildlife and then bought a few bags of Roo-Poo.

  • I like my sugar with coffee and cream: Beastie Boys announce tour dates

  • The Double Slit Experiment is considered the quintessential quantum mechanics experiment. It succinctly illustrates the counter-intuitive properties of the quantum world in a clear concise manner. I mean, where the F else are you gonna get very bizarre but very real quantum physics explained thru animation?

  • 19th-century weapon found in whale... A 50-ton bowhead whale caught off the coast of Alaska last month had a weapon fragment embedded in its neck that showed it survived a similar hunt — more than a century ago. That's my boy.

  • OK, time for another iced coffee. Peace.
