Clever rabbits ride sheep to escape flood

Twitter Facebook

When these wild rabbits were facing floodwaters, they had to think outside the box.

So they hopped onto a flock of sheep, as per a video shot by 64-year-old farmer Ferg Horne on his property near Dunedin, New Zealand, on Saturday.

"I couldn't believe it for a start," he told AP

Horne was helping a neighbour rescue 40 sheep from floodwaters, as a result of heavy storms in the country's South Island. He noticed some "dark shapes in the distance," and when he got closer there were three rabbits — two perched on one sheep, another on a single sheep. Read more...

Larry David and Bernie Sanders are actually related, and now it all makes sense

Twitter Facebook

Sometimes life imitates art in the most perfect way: Larry David is actually, truly, literally related to Bernie Sanders—y'know, the guy he impersonated on Saturday Night Live because everyone thought they looked alike?

Turns out that David took part in PBS' genealogy series Finding Your Roots recently and discovered that he's distantly related to the Vermont senator, "he's in the line... like a third cousin, or something," David revealed at a panel promoting Season 9 of Curb Your Enthusiasm at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. "I was very happy about that, I figured there was some connection." Read more...

'Deadwood' movie has a script, now HBO just needs to get the cast back together

Twitter Facebook

The long-gestating Deadwood movie is one step closer to our screens, according to HBO programming president Casey Bloys. Bloys confirmed that he has finally read a finished script from show creator David Milch.

"The one thing that I was concerned about was that I wanted a script that would stand on its own; that if you were a Deadwood fan it would make you happy, and if you had never watched Deadwood you could still enjoy it," Bloys said during HBO's presentation at the Television Critics Association summer press tour on Wednesday. "I’m happy to say David totally delivered on that — it’s a fantastic script." Read more...

Twitter Facebook

The small slice of folks who sit atop North Korea's sociopolitical hierarchy use the internet pretty much like anyone else in the world, according to a study published by Recorded Future on Wednesday. 

That might sound surprising, and indeed the report sparked a flurry of news stories on the topic. But it shouldn't come as a shock, according to experts familiar with the region.

"It shouldn't be a surprise that they like gaming and shopping at Amazon," said Robert Manning, an Asia analyst with The Atlantic Council. "I think it's not as weird a place as people think it is." Read more...

Filming that epic 'Game of Thrones' sea battle was even crazier than it looked

Twitter Facebook

Game of Thrones viewers are all too familiar with seminal battle sequences, but Sunday's Greyjoy faceoff was a visceral, bloody mess. HBO took us behind the scenes in a featurette called "Battling the Silence" which dives into the storm-tossed sea battle.

The scene's main players are Euron (Pilou Asbæk) and Yara (Gemma Whelan). Whelan discusses working with her on-screen uncle who understands the physicality of a battle sequence. Much of the filming involved green screens and was shot in "a car park in Ireland" rather than on a body of water.  Read more...
