He posted on Facebook: “You may have heard they may be doing a movie about me with Pauly Shore. I have never given my permission for this movie. So don’t believe everything you read.” Earlier, Shore had indicated that he hoped that Simmons would be involved. But obviously, Shore’s project — which just recently got the green light — isn’t authorized.

If you’re one of those people who is always worrying about whether you remembered to lock the front door when you left, then this new product is for you. Created by Japanese lock manufacturer Miwa, the “ChecKEY” is a sleeve-like accessory that goes over the top part of your key and features a small window that indicates whether you locked your door or not. The ChecKEY comes with a built-in mechanism that detects when you turn the key clockwise or counterclockwise — and changes color accordingly. When you turn the key clockwise, the little window on the ChecKEY turns white, and when you turn it counterclockwise, it turns orange. The mechanism is entirely mechanical, so it doesn’t require a battery. And any time you want to check to see if you locked your home, you simply look at your key. LINK:

A startup in Greenland has begun harvesting arctic ice and shipping it to the United Arab Emirates so exclusive bars can serve it in high-priced cocktails. Using glacial ice in drinks is a common practice in Greenland, and several entrepreneurs have unsuccessfully attempted to export it. The Arctic Ice company says the ice, which has been compressed over millennia, is completely without bubbles and melts more slowly than regular ice. By the way, the shortest shipping route from Greenland to Dubai? 19 days and 9,000 nautical miles (14,500km).
