On the surface of it, ska bands and improv troupes have little in common, outside of both being brands of entertainment that are more fun to produce than consume. But that might be enough right there, as the creators of the Holding Court Podcast have discovered. They've started a Tumblr called "Ska or Improv" and all you have to do is decide whether you're looking at a ska band or an improv troupe. Not a game for the faint of heart, as it's virtually impossible without resorting to a reverse Google image search. You can do that if you want (AV Club says one of the ska bands is calling itself "Skashank Redemption," so consider yourself warned) but it's probably just more fun to guess and leave it a mystery as to how many you actually got right ...

Serial may be over, but the snowball started by its investigation into the case of Adnan Syad, who was jailed for the murder of his 18-year-old ex-girlfriend, Hae Min Lee, continues to roll. After Jay Wilds gave a brand new account of just what happened on the day of Hae's murder, the prosecutor in the case spoke to the Intercept. The prosecutor, Kevin Ulrick, took serious issue with Serial's investigation, claiming he hadn't even been contacted by Serial's producers until the season was nearly over. The Intercept agreed, calling Serial's attempts to contact Ulrick "the most troubling thing" about the program. However, Serial is fighting back big time, and they make a pretty strong case.

We reached out to Kevin Urick multiple times, at multiple locations, during the winter of 2014, about nine months before the podcast began airing. Urick did not respond to any of those interview requests ...In the end Kevin Urick ...declined to be part of the podcast.

In 2012, some terribly unfunny person started a hoax about how you have to post a status declaring legal ownership of your Facebook content in order to keep it safe from the Facebook bogeymen. It starts off like this ...

In response to the new Facebook guidelines I hereby declare that my copyright is attached to all of my personal details, illustrations, comics, paintings, crafts, professional photos and videos, etc. (as a result of the Berner Convention). For commercial use of the above my written consent is needed at all times! ...

And goes on for meaningless paragraph after meaningless paragraph. It was useless in 2012 and it's useless now, as the hoax tends to pop up regularly like an unwanted Tinder match. As Facebook's Terms of Service clearly stipulate, you automatically own everything posted to Facebook, but give Facebook "a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with Facebook (IP License)." That agreement does not change when you post a Facebook status saying otherwise. So, don't post it. Don't copy and paste it. Don't fall for hoaxes and, if you don't like Facebook's Terms of Service then, by all means, get off of Facebook and go outside ... Discuss

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has just started a new book club, and he wants you to join. The young billionaire posted on his Page,

My challenge for 2015 is to read a new book every other week -- with an emphasis on learning about different cultures, beliefs, histories and technologies … Books allow you to fully explore a topic and immerse yourself in a deeper way than most media today. I'm looking forward to shifting more of my media diet towards reading books.

On the “A Year of Books” Page, Zuckerberg will keep followers updated about the latest selections and host moderated discussions about the books. After announcing the new reading initiative, the Facebook founder said he received thousands of suggestions on what books should be included. He wrote that among one of the most popular suggestions was the Bible. It’s still unclear if the “Year of Books” reading group will actually turn into a Bible study at some point though. So far, he’s only announced the first book for followers to read: The End of Power: From Boardrooms to Battlefields and Churches to States, Why Being in Charge Isn't What It Used to Be, by Moises Naim ...
