Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry said Monday he still thinks about a turnover in Game 7 of the NBA Finals last season, when he attempted a behind-the-back pass to Klay Thompson that instead sailed out of bounds in the fourth quarter, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com. That pass came around the five-minute mark with the Warriors up one. The team didn't score the rest of the game, and blew a 3-1 series lead. While Curry still laments the mistake, he also told Haynes he isn't going to change his style of play: "Yeah, I still think about that [turnover]. [But] in thinking about that game, it's funny because I know the concept of making the right play, making a simple play, understanding that there are deciding moments in games and the difference between winning a championship or not could be one of those plays. [With that said,] I came out in preseason this year and threw a behind-the-back pass because I have confidence that I can do it and it won't change that.

By Matt Toussaint When I was a kid, I would name the trees in my backyard. They all had distinct personalities and dynamic qualities, including the ability to talk. I would spend inordinate amounts of time collecting their branches and sticks, talking with them about my life and theirs. My imagination was fascinated with their solid presence coupled with a mysterious aliveness that defied their seemingly fixed nature. They knew something and I wanted to know what that was. Over two decades later, I find myself in the Amazon jungle and I’m still talking to trees. And they still have personalities and qualities and they do indeed talk back. Some are funny, some more reserved and laid back, others more serious, and they are all loving and willing teachers. I now walk into the forest and feel enmeshed in this visible and invisible web of plant-ness, part of an ongoing conversation that never once left any of us out.

A muscled, grunting man pretending to be a gorilla upsets a black-tie dinner for the museum, sniffing attendees and dragging a woman by the hair. The president of the Cannes jury, Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodovar, praised the film for exploring the dictatorship of political correctness and those trapped by it. They live in a kind of hell because of that, Almodovar said. It's clever. It's witty. It's funny. It deals with questions so important, said French actress and filmmaker Agnes Jaoui, a member of the jury that also included Americans Will Smith and Jessica Chastain. Most odds makers didn't have The Square as a favorite to win the prestigious Palme d'Or, the top prize awarded at Cannes. Coppola won best director for The Beguiled, her remake of Don Siegel's 1971 Civil War drama about a Union soldier hiding out in a Southern girls' school.

The 2017 NBA Finals tips off June 1, which gives much time for predictions, pre-matchup fodder and bulletin board material. Las Vegas sportsbooks and ESPN did the honors and provided some material for the Cleveland Cavaliers' Kevin Love to scoff at before his third trip to the championship round in as many seasons, per ESPN.com's Dave McMenamin : " The whole underdog thing is funny to me, because, yeah, at the end of the day we are defending our title. We're trying to repeat, which is so hard to do. I think we will use it as fuel, we will use it as motivation, but the idea of playing into it? It's tough for me to say that is the case. I don't feel like we're underdogs. We match up well with them, and I think they'd say the same about us. " According to ESPN.com's Chris Haynes , Golden State Warriors fill-in head coach Mike Brown compared his venture back to Cleveland for the NBA Finals to the Lion King's circle of life.

"It's sort of like a microcosm. You have these people everywhere in Europe and also here. You don't have to go to a small Bulgarian village in order to find these characters. The same kind of politicians you have in Finland and Sweden, everywhere in Europe," he says, "but also probably the United States. … There is like a small-time populist politician there who's just promising anything and who's trying to raise fears among people, to make people be afraid of everything new. And then, funnily enough, the liberal guy is the postman of the village." As for the populist candidate who ran against the settlement of Syrian refugees in the village, Aho says "he has a son living in Ukraine, which means that his son is an immigrant. Yet he doesn't want to have immigrants in his own country," underscoring his hypocrisy. "The Good Postman" is as heartbreaking as it is funny, a searing satire of today's world.

They believe if all they have to do to convince humans this is ok is dress up as a human through cloning and hybridization and then say, “huerr errderr, so funny killing babies, hahaehehuheheueh” that they reserve the spiritual right to destroy all of humanity. It’s all about child rape and sacrifice. The majority of people speaking out on this are in on it, they’re here to muddy the waters. The majority are forced to be involved, the differing factor is those who speak out and inform the public. I was involved with Solar Warden and MiLabs through the unacknowledged special access programs.

At the same time, she shows that early urban life was not always beneficial. Cities produced enormous gains in economics and civilizational arts, but those cities also weakened us. City dwellers tended to be shorter and less robust than their nomadic cousins. They were also much more disease ridden and even more often killed violently by other human beings. As a race, humanity advanced enormously by means of the city. As individuals, however, we often suffered from urban life. Hassett strives—more than a little too hard—for a light tone in Built on Bones . She’s just not as funny as she thinks she is, and the book’s many references to Monty Python and pop culture fail to make the author seem the hipster she clearly wants to be. While it may be true that archaeologists engage in rampant fornication during their excursions to remote dig sites, readers don't really need to be told this dozens of times.

You know, the sort of thing that happens on late-night. "Fallon’s desire to be liked, once his main asset, has become a lethal liability," Nazaryan writes. Yes, Fallon is dead in the water. According to the Times , Fallon's show is "still profitable and strongly supported by advertisers." Forget how dumb it was to expect someone with a segment on his program called "Lip-Sync Battle" to morph into Charlie Rose. What's annoying about all these articles is what none of the writers can bear to admit: Fallon not getting on board with the homogenous blob of liberal anger at Trump rocks their comfort zone. They certainly aren't angry that a comedian would do something to comfort a powerful politician. Otherwise, they'd be up in arms about: Bee's segment endorsing Hillary Clinton as the "baddest bitch" ever to run for president Meyers crying (and not in a funny way) over Hillary Clinton losing.

None of that mattered to me. By the time he did A View to a Kill , Moore was 57 years old—but still able to take on Christopher Walken and Grace Jones . He was a master at delivering those English quips. His hair was always neat! And did I mention funny? Moore even spoofed himself in Cannonball Run as a James Bond wannabe whose real name was Seymour Goldfarb, "heir to the Goldfarb Girdle fortune." Like all the 007 agents, Moore's Bond drank his vodka martini shaken, not stirred. But in Ian Fleming's first Bond novel, Casino Royale , 007 is not at all exclusive with his libations. His first drink is a whisky, and while he does imbibe in vodka, Bond more memorably asks a bartender to make a cocktail involving gin, vodka, and Kina Lillet called the Vesper. The shaken-not-stirred vodka martini phenomenon can be traced back to the first Bond movie, Dr.

Being a reporter for the local news basically means you're the station's guinea pig which can be both terrible and amazingly fantastic, especially for those watching along at home. Much to the dismay of hardcore fans, Disneyland recently revamped its beloved Tower of Terror ride, changing its theme to Guardians of the Galaxy . The park invited some media outlets for a first look, which means ABC 30 reporter Cory James got to test out the ride for a segment. His reaction ranged from screaming bloody murder to maybe almost passing out. Big plus: It's more entertaining than watching the ride itself. Read more...

A little instant karma, anyone? A driver with a dashcam captured a raging pedestrian in Adelaide, South Australia. As the driver was approaching a red light, an older man walking a dog began to cross the street. The man thought the driver was approaching too fast, so he scolded the driver with a variety of angry hand gestures. "Oh, piss off," the driver can be heard muttering in a very Australian fashion. All that hand gesturing distracted the pedestrian, who ended up walking right into a pole. Of course, in the eyes of the raging dude, that was the driver's fault. While the driver isn't free of blame here (he was driving a little fast), maybe don't be a jerk? Read more... More about Watercooler , Funny , Viral Videos , Karma , and Dashcam

A group of Texas teachers who doled out superlative certificates to junior high school students, naming one most likely to become a terrorist, were punished over what school officials called an insensitive and offensive ceremony. An unidentified seventh-grade teacher gave out different certificates to the whole class at Aguirre Junior High on Tuesday in an apparent joke, as other instructors watched and laughed, KHOU TV reported. Student named "most likely to become a terrorist" by teachers. @ChannelviewISD doesn't find it funny.
