These warm, gooey cinnamon rolls are my secret weapon around the holidays, because the all-in-one recipe takes only one bowl, and the rolls can be made in advance to bake and frost without any fuss.

College football games are too damn long. I have 3 solutions so far. | Bill Connelly for college football commissioner
College football games averaged nearly three and a half hours in 2016, and some went for nearly five hours. One game lasted so long, Mack Brown had to leave the announcer's booth on air. That’s absurd, and people have plenty of ideas on how to rectify that.

Some of those ideas are ridiculous. We’re not going to change quarter length from 15 minutes to 12. It seems unfair to reduce the number of replays in a game; if your officiating crew is having a bad night, saying "just accept it" doesn’t work.

Michael B. Jordan Is a 'Black Panther' Encyclopedia | WIRED
Michael B. Jordan Is a 'Black Panther' Encyclopedia http://ift.tt/2EoWW9O Prospective http://ift.tt/2CnYcZ2 February 14, 2018 at 07:12PM

In Black Panther, the titular hero is played by Chadwick Boseman, but it might be his cinematic adversary who knows more about his character. When we sat down with the cast of the new Marvel movie and started asking questions about the Wakandan king T’Challa, it was Michael B. Jordan, who plays villain Erik Killmonger, who knew the most comic book history about his onscreen foe.

Need proof? Ask Jordan who Black Panther is and he won't just say "the king of Wakanda," he'll say that he “fought Captain America throughout Marvel comic history.” Ask him if the hero has superpowers and he’ll respond, “Yeah, he does. He takes a Heart-Shaped Herb; it gives him super strength, a lot of cat-like qualities. Pretty cool.” Ask him whether T’Challa or Cap is stronger and the answer is: “They’re the same, but Black Panther edged out Captain America in almost every battle that they had throughout Marvel history.” He even has an excellent argument for who would win in a battle between T'Challa and Wolverine. Sure, some of his intel may have been in the script, but there's no denying Jordan is an encyclopedia of Wakandan knowledge.

But that’s just the beginning of the fun facts in this Google Autocomplete interview. Watch the video above to find out whether Boseman has siblings, how many languages Lupita Nyong’o (Nakia) speaks, and which member of the cast is good at karaoke. (Hint: It’s the one who once played a famous soul singer.)

How do AI-powered virtual assistants figure out what to say? Scriptwriters come up with their lines.

A means to an end: Most people use conversations with virtual assistants transactionally. Exchanges consist mostly of “Alexa, order me more paper towels” or “Siri, play ‘Born to Run’ by Bruce Springsteen.” Scriptwriters have to learn the best way to help to users achieve their intended goals, while also planning for twists and turns.

Siri’s improv skills: As Mariana Lin, writer and creative director for Siri, wrote in the Paris Review: “Writing for AI, then, can be a bit like writing an absurdist play. You have a character, you have some goals in mind. But there’s no accounting for what the other characters, the humans, will say or do.”

In-depth conversation: It’s a new avenue of employment for out-of-work Hollywood writers and poets. But for some it’s about more than just making ends meet. Lin says her goal is for AI not to limit the depth and intricacy of human discussion. It can, she believes, create “inspired conversation in our lives.”
