The Prestige plays a trick on its audience, hiding a secret in plain sight
“It takes a special gift to recognize that the best way to conceal information is to openly reveal it at a moment when the audience is consumed with another question entirely.”

A Trickster God's Guide to Domesticating Geniuses by LokasennaHiddleston (Thor - Marvel Movie 'Verse)
When Sleipnir was born, Loki did not have the heart to give him to the All-Father. Finally fed up with Asgard's treatment of him, he flees the Golden Realm with his son.
Centuries later, while hiding on Midgard, he meets a man in a red and gold suit and a heart that shines like the Tesseract.
Now, Loki will have something else to love and protect, and Sleipnir might just have a father. But what will Asgard and Midgard make of Loki's choice? Will the unlikely new family manage to handle all the challenges thrown their way?

Basketball Einstein - Sena Gregory, Time
His intelligence is on constant display. It's in the dunks, the fallaway shots, the ability to smother and outsmart opponents on defense--he finished second in the vote for Defensive Player of the Year this season--the spinning layups in the post. And then there are the passes he dishes out like a Vegas card dealer: whoosh, a crosscourt fastball to you, Ray Allen, for a corner three-pointer; flick, a shovel pass to you, Shane Battier, for another open shot. It's in his embrace of basketball analytics. James, who went directly to the NBA from high school, studies the numbers to see the spots on the floor where he has the best chance of scoring and his opponents are least effective. It's in the fact that he's still only 28 years old and will continue to push his game to new limits. "If he stays healthy," says ESPN analyst Hubie Brown, a former NBA head coach, "he will probably go down as the greatest player to ever play." Greatest genius, actually.

How ARTHR & ERNIE work: Backbone.js, Rails, Cocoa, and more. | Newspaper Club
Newspaper Club is a great product - but I'm really glad Tom's written about the technical underpinnings of the latest version of the code, because it's super impressive. They threw out InDesign and replaced it with their own renderer, written in Cocoa; they have a gorgeous, rich Javascript client that's a joy to use; and they have a development team of 2. TWO. Brilliant work, folks.
