In the 2006 film Idiocracy, one of the many gags is a movie called ***, which consists of nothing but 90 minutes of a bare buttocks on screen, occasionally farting. It is noted to have won eight Oscars, including best screenplay:






With that for context, tell me that we're not basically already there:






Also, just for kicks, a plot of fertility vs. GDP-per-capita of all nations in the world with a population of over 5 million people:



Poor people do, in fact, breed more.

This data seems to have some heteroscedasticity. Id like to see it on a logarithmic scale.

How would a log plot compensate for heteroscedastic variables?

It could make the variance more even, but in this situation the x axis would have to be reversed. Regardless, I think the beta of the regression is supposed to be "useful" even with heteroscedasticity.
So we can still say for every ~10k per capita GDP you get one more life sucking doomspawn per woman.

If that's your idea of relaxing, then I don't even know how to finish this sentence in a way that makes sense.


Reminds me of the Fruity Oaty Bars commercial for some reason:




Doing a google search for the Sounds of Star Trek has so far failed to revel to me any documentaries about the Foley / sound design in any of the TV series, but it did lead me to this page with tons of background loops: http://trekcore.com/audio/

Also, what if Wes Anderson (Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic, Grand Budapest Hotel, etc) had directed Forrest Gump?

That would have been far better if it were the Star Trek audio over the Bubble Butt video.

I gave away a black phone like that. Basically a rotary without the dial... so a hotline style.
