The New Breakfast Taco: The Los Angeles Times reports Taco Bell will soon be increasing the number of stores offering the waffle taco that the company launched in southern California earlier this year. Taco Bell’s new waffle taco has apparently become the top-selling breakfast item at all five locations where it’s currently offered, and will soon be offered at an additional 100 stores in Fresno, Omaha and Chattanooga. Personally, we’ll be sticking to Popeye’s for our fast-food waffle fix. Chicken and waffles on-the-go? Yes, please. source

More than 10,000 live exotic baby turtles were found in the luggage of two passengers at an Indian airport. Unfortunately, none of them were teenaged nor mutant. MORE HERE.

Did the new Crossfire start?

I imagine, as this panel discussion takes place, Jeff Zucker is in his lair at the CNN studios in Atlanta, rigidly stroking a Chihuahua, wondering how his plan to ruin cable news is going.

Today in weird trades: Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers may have led his team to a ton of success over the past nine years, but as a rebuilding period lingered, it was clear he was raring to go. The L.A. Clippers were interested, even. One problem: Rivers was still under contract. Solution? He’s essentially getting traded for a draft pick, a rare move for a coach. The crazy part? They wanted to trade him along with star player Kevin Garnett, but that deal got nixed.

This Mr. Clean commercial doesn’t appear to draw any parallels at all with the story of Superman.

Where’s the owner so I can criticize them for doing this to their dog?

How JPEG compression affects Shakespeare

Just for kicks, speaker and overall techie Tom Scott took a copy of Romeo & Juliet, saved the text file as a RAW Photoshop file, then saved the files as JPGs at different levels of compression to see how it corrupted the file. He then printed up the results as bound books, which is sort of a fun way to waste money. The results? At 100 percent, the text is barely readable. At 50 percent, it looks like gibberish. At zero percent, it looks like an accident. But the images Scott created? Here’s the interesting part: “On the front of each book is the JPEG image it was derived from,” he explains “And, for all but the lowest quality, they appear utterly identical to the naked eye.” Check the middle images of the photoset to see the photos in order.
