Vorhersage der Oscar-Gewinner durch Husten und Niesen
Ein paar Mad Scientists haben ein statistisches Model entwickelt, mit dem sie die Wahrscheinlichkeit eines Oscar-Gewinns anhand der Anzahl der Niesanfälle, Huster und Räusperer in Filmen ausrechnen können: Chalamet Coughs, Dune Wins: Predicting Best Picture Winners Using Coughs and Sneezes.
Dazu haben sie die Website Every Movie Cough ausgewertet und einen “Coughgeist” ermittelt, einen Wert, der angibt, wie sehr das Publikum im gegebenen Jahr auf Husten in Filmen steht. Die Anzahl der Huster und Räusperer in Oscar-Filmen entsprechen laut Paper dem Coughgeist ihres Jahres, sofern nicht der Batman-Effekt dazwischengrätscht: Filme, die keine Huster enthalten, aber dennoch Oscars gewinnen, haben statistisch relevant häufig Schauspieler in Hauptrollen, die Batman gespielt haben. Ein Batman ist also zwei Huster wert.
Der Favorit des Oscar-Rennens in diesem Jahr ist laut Kritikern “Power of the Dog” und “Belfast”, beide liegen aber über dem 2021er Coughgeist von 2. Geht es nach den Wissenschaftlern, müsste dieses Jahr “Licorice Pizza” oder “Dune” gewinnen, da beide zwei Huster enthalten. Ich sekundiere das und ziehe meinen Hut vor der Wissenschaft.
Many movies have coughs and sneezes in them. Some win the Academy Award for Best Picture. Is there a connection? The mainstream statistical hegemony says “no,” but our research suggests otherwise. We have created a model capable of predicting a Best Picture winner based on the number of coughs and sneezes in nominated films. This allows us not only to predict this year’s winner with 91.7% accuracy, but also to determine that Viggo Mortensen will be cast as Batman at some point in the future. (…)
Our dataset of coughs and sneezes comes from analyzing user-created subtitles for the deaf and hearing impaired (SDH) from OpenSubtitles.org. We search these subtitles for instances of phrases like “cough” and “a-choo,” correcting for false positives like a character saying “cough it up.” (…)
We notice that abnormalities in our framework tend to occur when a movie has no coughs and stars an actor who has played or will play Batman. For example, Argo, starring Ben Affleck, won with zero coughs when the Coughgeist was two. And Spotlight, starring Michael Keaton, won with zero coughs when the Coughgeist was also two. It appears there is a clear Batman Effect at play: when a movie has no coughs, having a lead actor who has played or will play Batman is worth two coughs.
Good News everybody! Microplastics found in human blood for first time! Look at Chaotic Nightclub Photos and tell me this is a bad thing.
You remember when the internet hat that cronenbergian/lynchian flair without being an actual mean and horrible place for everyone? Me too. Here’s fresh Salad Fingers Episode 12. My dear, how uetterly spellbinding to witness such beauty in the flesh.
“During February 2022, I challenged 3D artists with the Infinite Journeys 3D challenge, where I provided artists with a simple animation of a moving "vehicle" and they built out their own customs scenes. Of the 2,448 entires, the top 100 were chosen for this montage.”

I’m not saying that there are aliens living in the sun, but there are totally aliens living in the sun!
Interesting and cool concept for an online mag: “I Heard It In A Magazine is an online destination for sound culture and the listening-obsessed. We cover sound across our human experience by exploring how sound shapes our lives and drives the world forward, offering coverage of how sound is used in film, art, science, the internet, and everywhere else.”
Impressive Demo for Real-Time-Rendering of ultrarealistic CGI-people: “Enemies is the latest project by Unity’s award-winning Demo Team. It showcases Unity’s capabilities for powering high-end visuals in 2022, including the latest improvements to its High Definition Render Pipeline (HDRP), new high-end Adaptive Probe Volume lighting system, an all-new strand-based Hair solution, and an evolved Digital Human toolkit.” — If you follow this stuff, it’s an improvement of their Adam/Heretic-Demos from the past few years, but it’s still not jumping the uncanny valley, the moving skin and hair looks off. But we’re getting there.
Everybody is making a fuss about Goldman-Sachs-CEO David Solomon DJing at Lollapalooza, one of the largest festivals in the world and sure, some finance business guy djing is funny business for sure, but listen to his prog-piano-house banger Heatwave and tell me that this kind of mainstream-appealing house for the rich and beautiful isn’t a perfect fit for an absolute mainstream-festival like Lollapalooza.
Today in crypto-pipedreams: Ambitious plans unveiled for a libertarian city in the metaverse. And the stupid apes made a smelly crypto coin. Trust me, all of this will go just as fine as the crypto island and the crypto cruise and pretty much anything crypto has ever done. The best usecase for crypto right now seems to be: *Make sure your project fails hard and fast* which is something, i guess.
And yes ofcourse there are NFTs of shitting women, why you’re asking?
What did people who are super into orgies and group sex do during the pandemic? Like you and me, they attended “online group sex events (e.g. Zoom orgies) as well as skill-building classes (e.g. rope bondage).” I mean hey, I read 50 books during the pandemic, others learned better knots for bondage. To each their own.
This artist puts a camera inside her vagina and takes photos of her lovers. Given that in 2022 the value of shock art is pretty much below zero, this is, i dunno, shrugs?
The guy who does cover-versions of songs only using his voice remixed the whole Strokes-album Is This It but everything is his voice. It’s the pinacle of human culture, no less.
