1. Russia’s rules on dolphin frolicking are really strict: I can’t help but feel like this whole brawl at post-Soviet SeaWorld could have been avoided if they hadn’t skimped on the wall partitions between the audience and the animals.
2. Matt Damon stands up for teachers, not cameramen: During this weekend’s Million Teacher March in D.C. the actor and guest speaker bristles at a cameraman’s suggestion that maybe some educators are just bad at their job.
Dude should have done his homework: Damon’s mother (to his left) is a teacher herself.
3. Leonardo DiCaprio’s foreign cell-phone commercials only slightly less confusing than “Inception”: How is this not just a trailer for a new Leonardo DiCaprio movie?
What? Go buy these Chinese cell phones, or Leonardo DiCaprio will never find out what is going on.
4. Pixar’s best: This compilation of scenes from the animation studio is incredible looking, but it also seems kind of easy. Every shot from Pixar is like a work of art: all this guy needed to do was put music behind it.
5. Damned Ponies!: Brazil has a much more interesting way to sell Nissans than we do. I won’t spoil it, but I’m pretty sure the process involves large quantities of LSD being distributed around the ad agency’s boardroom.
I would like to meet the Brazilian Don Draper that came up with these spots.

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
