More ‘Harry Potter’

After eight films and $7.7 billion in worldwide box office, Warner Bros. has found a way to cash in on JK Rowling’s “Harry Potter” series once again: They won’t just make one semi-prequel movie based on a text the author wrote as an accompaniment to her international bestsellers, titled “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” but instead chop it up into three new feature films.

 

 

 

Word of the magical segmentation came in a New York Timesprofile of new WB chief Kevin Tsujihara, who was responsible for getting Rowling on board with the plan, which will involve her writing the big screen adaptations herself.

“When I say he made ‘Fantastic Beasts happen, it isn’t PR-speak but the literal truth,” Rowling told The Times. “We had one dinner, a follow-up telephone call, and then I got out the rough draft that I’d thought was going to be an interesting bit of memorabilia for my kids and started rewriting!”

 

 

 

 

The trilogy will be set 70 years before the first “Harry Potter” installment began, and involve the New York-set adventures of a “magizoologist” named Newt Scamander.

The new movies are just the latest continuation of Rowling’s beloved series; she’s also writing new chapters for the official fansite, Pottermore.com, and there will be a “Harry Potter” stage play, as well.

WhatsApp, Doc?

whatsappA woman has actually injured herself after using WhatsApp on her phone for six hours. Her doctor diagnosed her with a case of “WhatsAppitis,” which is a condition of sore wrists suffered after excessively using the WhatsApp text message service. It’s thought she’s the first to suffer form it, but she won’t be the last. Here are some other ‘diseases’ that might be on the way thanks to our social network addictions:

• The Twitches – The feeling that you cannot sit through an event without compulsively tweeting about it.

• Instagramorexia – A phenomenon where you can’t eat your food until you post the photo.

• Obsessive Refresh Disorder – The compulsive urge to refresh your Gmail.

• SiDS (Sudden iPhone Death Syndrome) – A disease associated with people who believe they charged their phones … but did not actually charge their phones.

• ADCCD (Attention Directed to Candy Crush Disorder) – An inability to focus on anything that is not Candy Crush. (TheDateReport)

Instant Karma

Road-rageJohn Lennon sang about instant karma, and a guy learned about it on a road rage video that’s gone viral. It happened in Tampa. A woman was being tailgated by a guy in a truck. She felt intimidated, so popped her camera over her shoulder and started to record the incident. Now, she was in the left lane and going slow, which is wrong to begin with. None the less, the guy got impatient and when he saw an opening, he darted around her, showed her where she ranked on his list, then cut her off, only to end up losing control of his truck and crashing into median.  To make his problem worse, he left the scene of an accident — even though he was the only one involved. Turns out the cops frown upon that more than what happened while they were driving.  Here’s the (PG-13) video… 

Go Ninja, Go Ninja, NO…..

What Would You Do?

A Georgia bank accidentally deposited $31,000 into a teen’s bank account—the 18-year-old then spent all of it.

A man made the hefty deposit at First Citizens Bank in Athens, Ga. on March 7th. The teen shares the man’s name, however, and the teller mistakenly deposited the money into the wrong account.

The teen, ecstatic upon discovering his newfound wealth, commenced on a massive spending spree. He withdrew $20,000 in cash, police said, and spent another $5,000 on his debit card.

 

 

 

 

Bank officials discovered the error after receiving an angry call from the man who had made the original deposit.

When the kid went to the bank to withdraw the remainder of the money on March 18th, tellers informed him of the mistake. The teen then insisted that he inherited the money from his grandmother.

A Madison County sheriff’s deputy went to the thief’s house, where he “again said he thought the money came from his grandmother’s estate.”

The deputy, presumably after rolling his eyes, told the teen that he must return the money to the bank. The officer assured the the thief that if he returns the money, he won’t go to jail.

The kid assured the deputy he would get right on it. Except, he didn’t.

The bank now says they will file charges if the money isn’t returned.

Gawker published an article commending the teen (albeit somewhat sarcastically). But, some commentators disagreed with Gawker’s sentiment.

“Soooooo…if someone drops their wallet in a cab, it’s okay for the cab driver to claim it belongs to him and just abscond with the money inside? There is no obligation to return it? Seriously, those of you who advocate this kid ripping off the bank are unbelievable.”

 

 

WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

Spend it?

Tell the bank of their error?
