Surgical Resident Breaks Down 49 Medical Scenes From Film & TV | WIRED

Annie Onishi, general surgery resident at Columbia University, takes a look at emergency room and operating room scenes from a variety of television shows and movies and breaks down how accurate they really are. Would the adrenaline scene from Pulp Fiction actually play out that way? Is all that medical jargon we hear in shows like Grey's Anatomy and House true-to-life? Is removing a bullet really a cure-all for a gunshot wound?

Correction: We misidentified the type of worm in the Grey's Anatomy episode at 5:23! It was actually Ascaris lumbricoides,not Strongyloides

assault, misconduct, and violence against women by those in the sports industry

Desus and Mero talk about what went down on The Breakfast Club

It's the continuation of what happened between VICELAND's Desus and Mero appearing on The Breakfast Club and DJ Envy demanding an apology from the late night hosts after making a joke about his wife. TL;DR: DJ Envy and his wife appeared on The Real to talk about him cheating and them getting back together.

Desus and Mero talk about what happened during their appearance. Desus claps back why the fuck didn't he just call them for an apology instead of asking for it during their appearance on The Breakfast Club. Desus gave the apology. What more did Envy want?

They talk about Charlemagne being messy.

It's Official: Jennifer Lawrence is a Flop

- The Hollywood Reporter looks into Jennifer's recent failures and the death of the movie star.

- Jennifer Lawrence had a lot banking on Red Sparrow but it only managed to open to a humble $16.9 million first weekend after endless promotion and talk show appearances. The actress apparently knew she had a lot riding on the film, and did heavy promotion.

- Now the Hollywood Reporter doubts her bankability: Many in Hollywood thought Lawrence was the real thing, until her box office began to show signs of continental drift. The news that she's had her third major flop in a row with Red Sparrow (following Passengers and mother!) was especially disheartening, following the underperformance of Joy and the forgotten Serena.

- Studios have increasingly turned to brands, rather than brand names, to the Star Wars and Marvel movies, rather than individual actors. Jennifer Lawrence was supposed to be the exception, but maybe there's no such thing as movie stars anymore.

Camila Cabello responds to claims that Taylor Swift encouraged her to quit Fifth Harmony

CaCa claims Diabla Blanca Taylor Swift did not gas her up and ditch Fifth Harmony. “It annoyed me that people said she was encouraging me because I know that she probably got a lot of negative criticism for that”, CaCa said. “Absolutely nobody could ever persuade me to do something. If I don’t want to do something the whole world could be telling me and I won’t do it.", exclaims CaCa.

CaCa caused major tension within Fifth Harmony from blindsiding the girls and releasing a song with Shawn Mendes without their knowledge video of shawn turning camilla's mic off during their duet. CaCa was exposed using racial slurs, gross sexts and prompting physical violence against group member Ally for overusing the word y'all.

Fifth Harmony's label held emergency meetings with a mediator and hired a therapist so the girls could work out their differences but CaCa never showed. Diabla Blanca made the group dynamic worst by throwing CaCa a bday party and not inviting other members of Fifth Harmony.

Don't worry, Hawkeye will be in Avengers: Infinity War!

Rob Keyes at Screen Rant got to visit the set of Avengers: Infinity War last summer, and he asked the question that's on everybody's mind: where is Hawkeye? The Russo brothers, co-directors of the film, were quick to assuage our fears and explain what's happening to everybody's favorite superhero:

Joe Russo: Hawkeye, coming out of Civil War, is in the same position that Cap and Falcon are at the end of that movie. And Ant-Man. And coming into this movie characters who were on Cap’s side coming out of the Civil War. Some made certain decisions and others made other decisions that led to different paths in them dealing with oversight in this movie in a different way. So Hawkeye’s on his own journey in this movie.

Anthony Russo: Yeah. He has a unique reaction to the Civil War situation that puts him in a special spot in this film.

Keyes also mentioned that during the visit, he saw a prop that hints at Hawkeye's special journey (OP note: Hawkeye is totally going to turn Ronin in Infinity War).

Mike Posner Comes Out As Bisexual

Mike Posner released a spoken word album this month and in the song "A Song With Pitbull"
he included this lyric:

I got an email this morning
It’s from a record label ANR
They want me to do a song with Pitbull
My part is already written
They are sure it will be a big hit

I want to have sex with men and women I haven't met yet


OJ Simpson thinks Colin Kaepernick made a mistake and you should respect the flag

OJ Simpson, the former football star who evaded a murder conviction by exposing police racism, thinks Colin Kaepernick's protest of police racism on the football field was a mistake:
I think Colin made a mistake. I really appreciate what he was trying to say. I thought he made a bad choice in attacking the flag."

"I grew up at a time when deacons were in the KKK. I don't disrespect the Bible because of those guys. The flag shouldn't be disrespected because of what cops do. The flag represents what we want America to be."

"When he did it the first time I thought, 'Well, you took a gamble, and I give you credit.' But it was him continuing to do it where he made the biggest mistake. I'm a firm believer of doing what you think is right, but I would always stand for the flag."

He says Trump used to be one of his golfing buddies:
"The one thing I can say about The Donald is The Donald is fun."

"Somebody asked me if I'd have voted for him ... Probably not, but I only know two of my friends I'd vote to be president. Some of my best, best besties I would not vote to be president. That has no bearing on it, you know?"


Cate Blanchett & Sandy Bullock get ‘penis facials’

"Sandy [Bullock] and I saw this facialist in New York, Georgia Louise and she gives what we call the penis facial and it's something--I don't know what it is, or whether it's just 'cause it smells a bit like sperm--there's some enzyme in it, so Sandy refers to it as the penis facial," Blanchett shared when asked about her beauty regime.

Georgia Louise explains the contents of the sperm facial, "The Hollywood EGF Facial started last year when Sandra Bullock was filming in NYC and came to see me for a deep cleansing and long-lasting facial glow," says Louise. "I wanted to give her something that would transform her skin without the need to undergo lasers, so I loaded up her bespoke facial with something that would give her long-lasting results. Within weeks her make-up artist, Whitney, and cast mates wanted to know what was the cause of her amazing, long-lasting glowing skin...and from that moment onward the Hollywood EGF Facial was born!"

The latest on Brielle Biermann: from heartbreak to robbery

As you may have read in the past two posts (here and here), there have been conflicting reports as to the status of 'Don't Be Tardy' star Brielle Biermann and Mike Kopech's relationship.

Last night she ominously tweeted this:

Meanwhile, her heartwrenching breakup is on the heels of a substantial robbery that Brielle suffered:

  • thieves stole two Chanel bags from her car valued at $2,900 and $1,000

  • they also stole three driver's licenses (hers, her mother Kim Zolciak's, and her sister Ariana's) and three credit cards

  • the thieves apparently had a fun day out on her dime, spending over $4,000 at a gas station, an Applebee's, and Bloomingdale's

  • Kim's husband Kroy was the one who called the police to report the robbery

  • Kroy has video footage of the robbery which proved unhelpful to police

  • Kim tweeted: “Hey you loser we got your a— on camera stealing our s—! You are a dumb f—!!”

Terry Gilliam Blasts ‘Mob Rule’ of #MeToo Movement in Hollywood: ‘It Is a World of Victims’

"There are plenty of monsters out there… There are other people (still) behaving like Harvey in the film industry, abusing their power for sex. Weinstein was exposed because he is an asshole and he made so many enemies."

"It’s crazy how simplified things are becoming. There is no intelligence anymore and people seem to be frightened to say what they really think. Now I am told even by my wife to keep my head a bit low. It’s like when mob rule takes over, the mob is out there they are carrying their torches and they are going to burn down Frankenstein’s castle.”

"I think some people did very well out of meeting with Harvey and others didn’t. The ones who did knew what they were doing. These are adults, we are talking about adults with a lot of ambition. Harvey opened the door for a few people, a night with Harvey — that’s the price you pay… Some people paid the price, other people suffered from it.”

Kim Kardashian blasts Get Out memes joking Kanye West has been captured by her family

Kim sat down with Elle magazine to speak about a number of headlines concerning her husband.

Some fans have compared Kanye to Daniel Kaluuya’s character in the film Get Out. Daniel discovers a horrifying family secret when he visits his white girlfriend’s house for the first time – that her family has been taking the bodies of black people (but not their minds) because they believe their bodies are superior.

Kim told Elle about the meme: “Another dumb Kanye f**king Get Out reference… It’s like people are so f***ing dumb and stupid.”
