David Letterman's very first Top Ten list

It has been at least 20 years since I thought David Letterman was funny, but I did always enjoy his nonsensical, often absurdly obscure, Top Ten lists. Here is his very first Top Ten from 1985:

Video shows skydiver almost getting hit by meteorite

If you decide to go skydiving, be sure to watch out for meteorites. Anders Helstrup, member of the Oslo Parachute Club, was wearing a helmet cam that caught images of a meteorite narrowly missing his open chute. A geologist confirmed that a meteor had exploded in the atmosphere about 12.5 miles (20 km) above Helstrup and his fellow skydivers.


And, yes, this is entirely believable.

Car dealership's clever comeback to protest sign

When Subaru of Wichita decided to go ahead with a $1.5 million remodeling and expansion project, it hired a local contractor to handle the job. The contractor bid out the drywall portion of the project to several companies and eventually went with the lowest qualified bid. It just so happened the winning bid was from a local, non-union company. Naturally, that sparked a protest from United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America Local 201. It wasn't pleasant...


Rather than take it lying down, however, the dealership responded with a sign of its own...



...and even provided the protesters with lunch...


You gotta love it!

First teaser trailer for the upcoming Peanuts movie

When I first wrote about the upcoming Peanuts movie back in 2012, I was less than enthused. Talk of a high-tech adaptation of one of the world's most beloved comic strips didn't sit well with me. I thought moving away from the hand-drawn feel of the originals was the quickest way to ruin it.

I now admit I may have been a little hasty in my judgement. After seeing what Disney had done with its short film Paperman, I started warming up to the idea that technology need not ruin classic-style animation.

And now, having watched the first teaser trailer for 2015's Peanuts, I actually think it could work. Check it out:


I still think 3D is a bit over the top, though.
