Kim Jong Un called Seth Rogan’s upcoming movie ‘The Interview’, “an act of war”. Everybody’s a critic.
In the movie, Rogen and James Franco star as two journalists who, after scoring an interview with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, are ordered by the CIA to assassinate him. In a statement published by the state-run KCNA news agency, a foreign ministry spokesman characterized Rogen as a “gangster filmmaker” and called upon the US to block the film, according to a report from the AFP. “The act of making and screening such a movie that portrays an attack on our top leadership… is a most wanton act of terror and act of war, and is absolutely intolerable,” the spokesman said, adding that the US would face a “resolute and merciless response” if it fails to ban the film, which is slated for release later this year.

Vice News video of the day: Kurds fight for control of their nation

As recently as 2012, the Iraqi army and the Kurdish fighters, know as Peshmerga, engaged in a standoff that at times seemed like it could break out into conflict. For now though, the Kurds are firmly in control — though south of the city, sporadic attacks continue. VICE News spoke with Falah Mustafa Bakir, the head of foreign relations for the KRG, who said that the Kurds have no intention of giving up their control of Kirkuk.

ESPN sneaks cameras into a migrant worker camp in Qatar to look at the slave labor that’s building the massive infrastructure for Qatar’s World Cup in 2022
Even as crowds cheer their teams on in the 2014 World Cup, the lengths that Brazil went to in order to make it a reality cannot be downplayed. However in 2022, the World Cup will be in Qatar, a tiny, massively wealthy oil state where nearly none of the citizens actually work, but instead the government imports laborers from around the globe, mainly from South Asia. And with the World Cup construction, hundreds and hundreds have died already, being forced to work 10 to 12 hour days in 120 degree heat. They’re not allowed into the cities other than to work, they’re kept in squalid ghettos on the edges of town, their passports are taken and they become property of their bosses. Welcome to Qatar!

Teaching Creationism as science is now illegal in all UK classrooms

Seeing the craziness that has consumed parts of the US with religious groups trying to infiltrate Christianity into public school science classrooms with religion very poorly disguised as “science”, Great Britain recently made teaching Creationism in public schools a crime. As it should be.

Daily Discussion: US Trademark Office cancels Washington Redskins patent, says it’s racist. Help give the Redskins a new name

image

After a lengthy court battle between Native Americans and the NFL’s Washington Redskins, the US Patent and Trademark Office yesterday canceled the patent on the name “Washington Redskins”, citing that “Redskins” is a disparaging, racist term. This will not force the Redskins to change their name, nor does it stop the team from selling Redskins merchandise, but the fight for the team to keep the name may be nearly lost, so at some point, they’re probably going to have to think of something else to call the football team. The last time a DC team changed its name because of good reasons they went with the “Wizards”. So they could try that.

Amazon announces its magical 3D screen smartphone that just happens to be good at helping you buy stuff from Amazon

As expected, when Amazon held its private press event in Seattle today, it was to pull the curtain back from its first smartphone, the Fire Phone. With successes in the Kindle Fire tablet and Fire TV, Amazon’s new phone doesn’t have the highest resolution or the fastest processor, but it does have some really neat features— it will carry over the Mayday button from the Kindle Fire, it has four front-facing cameras to watch for head position so it can deliver glasses-free 3D without having to hold your head at one perfect angle, and it just wouldn’t be an Amazon phone if it didn’t offer a bevy of built-in features that will make purchasing everything you could possibly imagine via Amazon way too easy.

Iraq war architect now thinks we should go back and stay foreeeevvverrrr

Former Deputy Secretary of Defense under George W. Bush, Paul Wolfowitz, the man often called “the architect of the Iraq War” stated this weekend that had we just never ever left Iraq at all, if we had just kept it a perpetual war, everything would just be dandy right now and the Iraqis would surely all form a human chain of love from the border of Kuwait to the borders of Turkey. Well, I elaborated a bit, that’s the gist of it. Not at all that what’s happening in Iraq is what pretty much everyone knew was inevitable, and that’s that the country is splitting apart along ethnic boundaries instead of being confined to the arbitrary borders assigned to it by Great Britain in the 1930s.

Researchers find that fasting for three days is a good way to reboot your immune system

For centuries, some people have touted the benefits of periodic fasting, and now with 21st century science, researchers have discovered that fasting for three days apparently “restarts” the immune system by triggering the body to turn stem cells into a batch of brand new white blood cells. Scientists at the University of Southern California say the discovery could be particularly beneficial for people suffering from damaged immune systems, such as cancer patients on chemotherapy.

Florida woman arrested for shooting a missile into a car has the most Florida name ever

For a minute, never mind the charge of shooting a missile into a car. A missile doesn’t have to be a Minuteman or Patriot missile— it’s simply a launched rocket-shaped projectile. Let’s focus on the important part, that the woman who was arrested in Polk County, Florida has the most Florida name ever. Crystal Metheney. No, that’s not the name of a Breaking Bad themed My Little Pony, that’s her actual name. This is gonna be a good day.

Man gets his dick stuck in a pipe for two days, million to one odds

A Chinese man was left red-faced after getting his penis stuck in a pipe for TWO DAYS. Lian Tien came up with possibly the world’s most bizarre excuse for the embarrassing blunder - he was painting in the nude and slipped. The 61-year-old said his ‘private parts’ became stuck in a pipe sticking out used to take water from the building’s air conditioning unit. But he thought nobody would believe his story - so he stayed there for two days until he developed a fever and called doctors, who suggested they call for backup from the fire brigade.
