The U.S. Forest Service Is Backing Off Its $1,000 Fine for Photos in the Forest — The U.S. Forest Service, one of the four agencies which oversees wilderness areas in the United States, is backing off the language in proposed rules that would require members of the media to have a permit to photograph or shoot video in the 36 million acres of wilderness areas it oversees.

The U.S. Forest Service Wants to Fine You $1,000 for Taking Pictures in the Forest — Nice photo. That'll be $1,000, please. This week's most profoundly wrongheaded display of nonviolent press infringement comes from an unlikely source: The U.S. Forest Service. New rules being finalized in November state that-across this country's gloriously beautiful, endlessly photogenic, 193 million acres of designated wilderness area administered by the USFS-members of the press who happen upon it will need permits to photograph or shoot video.

Sarah Silverman Just Gave Everyone the Quote of the Day — Incredibly-on the same day that the NFL chose to uphold Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon's suspension for testing positive for marijuana use-Sarah Silverman, who caused her own stir earlier this week, offered some brief wisdom: It's silly that having a puff of legal pot at the end of the night is news amongst a sea of scary drunk people- Sarah Silverman (@SarahKSilverman) August 27, 2014 There's also this, by the way.

Richard Attenborough, Actor, Director, and 'Builder of Worlds' Has Died at 90 — The tremendously talented Lord Richard Attenborough-actor, director, and shining light of cinema for decades-has died today at the age of 90. He passed away around lunchtime on Sunday, according to a statement by his son. He is best known for his acting roles in The Great Escape, Brighton Rock, Jurassic Park, and Miracle on 34th Street, and for directing Gandhi, which earned two Academy Awards.

Nutella Recipes - Nutella Funny Videos - Esquire — Oh, sweet Jesus, no. As if sriracha, beer hops, and high-end whiskey weren't bad enough, now there's another shortage to worry about. The Nutella you know and love is running out. And it won't be pretty. All bets are off. If you live with or are friends with a Nutella devotee, there is no room for compromise.

Exclusive: Listen to Little People's Remix of Polyphonic Spree — Nothing resonates quite like a relationship in peril. We've all been there. She complains you're not spending enough time with her, but your schedule hasn't been normal in months. You left the seat up, and it's the third time, you jackass. All that seems to be left in it for both of you is inertia.

Benjamin Netanyahu Ice Cream Budget — We feel for Benjamin Netanyahu. He will no longer be eating his ice cream for free, according to the Atlantic Wire: "The Prime Minister's Residence had already spent NIS 3,000 [$814 US] on ice cream by May of last year, and therefore filed a special request for budgeting thousands of shekels more for ice cream from a nearby shop that Netanyahu especially liked," reports the Times of Israel.

If Leonardo DiCaprio Makes Even One Person Care, That's a Victory — Leonardo DiCaprio is a busy man. One week he's living it up in Buzios, Brazil, for the World Cup chatting up no less than 50 women at once and hanging on a borrowed 482-foot superyacht, and just today he fought the good fight for the world's oceans.

Leonardo DiCaprio Draws a Line With the Kardashians — Life hands you all kinds of complicated situations. You confront them, look at your options, and make a decision. Here's a complicated situation Leonardo DiCaprio faced: he was about to walk into a party that was filming an episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."
