5 Lines: Of Wigs And Weiners

In 5Lines, Blog by Brady Carlson

Five lines worth remembering from the past week:

  1. “I’m not crazy about those pants.” Huma Abedin, top aide to Hillary Clinton, to her husband, Anthony Weiner (you may know him better as “Carlos Danger”), in a new documentary called “Weiner.” THEY NAMED THE MOVIE “WEINER.” [New York Times]
  2. “The Urban Death Project utilizes the process of composting to safely and gently turn our deceased into soil-building material, creating a meaningful, equitable and ecological urban alternative to existing options for the disposition of the dead,” – designer Katrina Spade, describing a new plan to use your remains to grow some badass tomatoes the summer after your death. [Inhabitat]
  3. “‘12345678’ gained popularity, moving to third overall, ‘1234567’ jumped two spaces to ninth, and ‘123456789’ held strong at sixth.” – reporter A.J. Dellinger on how passwords are getting longer but stay just as ridiculous. [The Daily Dot]
  4. “With your small donation of at least $1.00, a like  and one share, I’m certain that we will be able to pick ourselves up from the trenches of this lost and spend another fortune trying to hit it big again!” – a user on GoFundMe who claimed to have spent her whole family’s savings on Powerball tickets, and was crowdfunding a Round 2. Or you could just throw your money into the human compost of the Urban Death Project, which would probably be more productive. [Vibe]
  5. “I probably would have given him a better wig if I had known.” – hair salon owner Elaine Mancuso, on loaning a middle-aged man a wig so he could portray an elderly woman in a photo op for the Cranston, R.I., city government. Can’t wait to see the documentary about this story. [Associated Press]
