'What On Earth!' documentary shows how cars might look to aliens

By Sebastian Blanco

what on earth screen grab

Filed under:

There’s a classic The Far Side comic where two aliens, cleverly disguised as traffic lights, discuss eliminating the Earth’s population slowly, one at a time. The joke, of course, is that things aren’t always what they seem.

Apparently, filmmakers Les Drew and Kaj Pindal had a similar idea back in 1966, when they made the animated short called What on Earth! The nine-minute movie is a satirical look at Earth from outer space. Specifically, when Martians arrive on our blue rock, they assume, based on the observable conditions, the automobile is the dominant species. It’s a warm and funny little video, especially the part about how getting crushed and heading to the junk yard is an individual’s final contribution to society. The Film Board says, “This animated short proposes what many earthlings have long feared – that the automobile has inherited the planet. When life on Earth is portrayed as one long, unending conga-line of cars, a crew of extra-terrestrial visitors understandably assume they are the dominant race. While humans, on the other hand, are merely parasites.”

What On Earth! was nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated Short in 1967, but lost to something called The Box. Produced by the National Film Board of Canada, the movie was shown in theaters and on ABC television in the US in the 1960s. Now, it is available for your viewing pleasure simply by clicking below.

News report on Prius tire slasher in Arlington, VA - video screencap

Filed under:

Toyota Prius owners aren’t bad folks. With a few exceptions, they’re just normal people that appreciate the comfortable, high-mileage hybrid. Someone in Arlington, Virginia doesn’t see it that way, though, as 14 examples (and one Smart) had at least one tire slashed last Sunday night.

The serial tire-slasher didn’t any items from the vehicles, but he or she has left owners with substantial bills and sour dispositions. According to a report from ABC affiliate WJLA, some citizens are considering the matter a hate crime.

Despite the targeting of Toyota hybrids and the acquisition of one fingerprint, police have been unable to make any arrests, as the slasher has targeted vehicles across the county. Take a look at the local news report from WJLA below.

How to exit a script with error ?

By Salil Gupta


I have a script ABC which calls another script XYZ. Function of XYZ is to ftp a file from one server to another.

code for ABC:



home/user/xyz "$@"

exit $?

code for xyz:



### This file holds the outget of the FTP commands for success checking
#touch $FTPCHK
echo "" > $FTPCHK



echo Source Host: $HOSTNAME
echo Source File Name: $SRCFILE
echo Destination File: $DSTFILE

echo `date` Beginning FTP download...
ftp -v ${HOSTNAME} <>$FTPCHK 2>&1
nlist ${SRCFILE}

### Check for FTP errors
CHK1=`grep -c "226 Transfer complete." $FTPCHK`
CHK2=`grep -c "226 ASCII Transfer complete." $FTPCHK`
CHK3=`grep -ic "226 transfer complete" $FTPCHK`
CHK4=`grep -ic "226 File send OK." $FTPCHK`

### In NT, There should transmissions complete:
### One for the data transfer,
### One for the nlist

if [ $CHK1 -eq 2 ] || [ $CHK2 -eq 2 ] || [ $CHK1 -eq 1 -a $CHK2 -eq 1 ] || [ $CHK3 -eq 2 ] || [ $CHK4 -eq 1 ]; then
echo "OK: FTP Transmission Worked"
echo '--------------------------------------------------------------'
echo '--------------------------------------------------------------'

echo "ERROR: FTP Transmission Failed"
banner "ERROR"
echo '--------------------------------------------------------------'
echo '--------------------------------------------------------------'

ls -al ${DSTFILE}


echo '---------------------------------------------------------------------'

exit $RC

In script XYZ, I am trying to ftp a file. So during ftp , whenever it shows that space is less than size of file, it should ftp the partial according to the available space and prompt a message about it and also prompt a message to outer script that inner script could not complete successfully. Hence resulting in the failure of outer script, due to partial ftp of file.

Also please post the comments about the each step of script to explain what is happening in that step. Thanks a lot in advance.

By The Huffington Post News Editors

Perhaps, the fourth time’s a charm.

Or at least that’s what fans of Sofía Vergara’s Gloria on ABC’s “Modern Family” are hoping after the Colombian actress was nominated for her fourth consecutive Emmy on Thursday. Actress Morena Baccarin and comedian Louis C.K. also made the list of nominees for television’s big night.

Vergara is once again competing against her co-star Julie Bowen — who won in 2011 and 2012 — for the Emmy for “Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series”; and “Modern Family” will be vying for it’s fourth consecutive win as “Outstanding Comedy Series.”

What Jenny McCarthy Should Do Before Her View Debut

By Emily Willingham, Contributor The decision is in: Jenny McCarthy will join “The View,” a daytime ABC chatfest involving a handful of women of, ahem, different views gabbing about everything from shoes to whether or not Mel Gibson is a racist. The show debuted with a smidge of gravitas, courtesy of the presence of Barbara Walters, pre-Oscar interview weepies notwithstanding. But the likelihood that it will retain any sense of that sobriety has just become extraordinarily low. …read more

Will Zimmerman Face Federal Civil-Rights Charges?

By Breaking News

George Zimmerman SC Will Zimmerman Face Federal Civil Rights Charges?

The not-guilty verdict in George Zimmerman’s trial for second-degree murder and manslaughter is not the end of the legal story. There are still a few court cases to pursue, including a few that may emanate from Zimmerman’s camp, such as a defamation lawsuit against NBC News for doctoring audiotapes to make Zimmerman sound like a racist. Zimmerman attorney James Beasley is quoted in the Washington Post saying his team plans to “start in earnest ASAP” on this lawsuit. Incidentally, the Post also quotes NBC’s remarkable defense of its creative video editing, issued before the verdict was handed down on Saturday:

NBC Universal Media responded to the Zimmerman complaint by noting that other media outlets played up the racial angle of Zimmerman’s deadly encounter with Trayvon Martin.

The company also noted the pivotal nature of the second-degree murder case: “[I]f Zimmerman is convicted, that fact alone will constitute substantial evidence that the destruction of his reputation is the result of his own criminal conduct, and not of the broadcasts at issue which, like countless other news reports disseminated by media entities throughout the country, reported on the underlying events.”

In other words, it’s OK for the media to lie outrageously and slander someone, provided they go on to lose at trial? It would do the deeply sick world of left-wing agenda journalism a world of good if Zimmerman sued NBC “News” into oblivion, and taught the rest of them a stern lesson, but this sort of thing usually ends in a settlement.

There’s also the high probability of a civil suit from Trayvon Martin’s family against Zimmerman. ABC News reviewed this option in a piece bizarrely entitled “George Zimmerman Could Face Civil Suits, Death Threats, Federal Prosecution.” What do you mean, “could face death threats,” ABC? The man is positively buried under them. New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz just had to apologize for venturing his opinion that “Zimmerman doesn’t last a year before the hood catches up to him.”
