The Triumph of the Ordinary Cellphone — Interesting article about worldwide use of cellphones. (Thanks to my dad.)

More antivax hammering — Vaccination protestors kill. Period. Bad science is bad science, and even the most sincerely held opinions are not facts. no matter where you fall on the political spectrum.

Do Popes Quit? — The Catholic Church I knew of when I was in a kid in the 1970s stood for education, healthcare, and social justice. The Catholic Church today seems most concerned with sheltering pedophiles and persecuting pregnant women. What the hell happened over the years?

To tie bad movies together with cellphones: my brother and I watch a lot of SyFy bad skiffy for fun, and one of our favorite games is guessing when the movie was made by type/prevalence of cell phones. It's striking sometimes.

Worst movie I ever saw part of: King Solomon's Mines, with Richard Chamberlin, Sharon Stone, and John Rhys-Davies. After twenty minutes we walked out (and I hate to walk out on movies, like I hate to not finish a book). Awful Indiana-Jones-wannabe, despite the pedigree.

I'd have to say _Laserblast_, although it's a bit of a toss up between that and _Manos, the Hands of Fate_. At least the latter was done by an amateur...
