How does a short make money?

I'm wondering about the business end of short films. How do they make money? A no-budget, 5-minute short is one thing, but many shorts have high production values, location shoots, CGI, etc., which can come to a substantial amount. For example the Academy Awards for Best Short nominees all seem to be (I didn't see em) at least (stab in the dark here) $10,000 and way up. Unlike features (even really crappy ones), shorts aren't shown in theaters or on video and I've never really seen them outside a shorts festival. Are the producers of these taking a loss? Is it merely a kind of marketing for a director/production company and a loss is the norm?

Making a movie master list

I want to make a list of every movie and book I've ever seen/read. There are a few categorizing apps like this, but nothing I've found is very efficient. Here's my idea and tell me if it's already been done: I can search by genre, actor, director, author, etc and be given a list (preferably with the movie/book cover as a clickable icon), which I can then simply click on to go to my master list. The list then has my choices darkened (and the unclicked ones still light), so I can easily see, say, which Scorsese movie I haven't gotten to yet. Does anything like this exist? If not, it'd be a good project for me to work on (tho probably waaay over my head).

Who is Yoda?

StarWarsGeekFilter: I'm trying to find out the origins of the Star Wars character Yoda. I currently live in Japan, and a buddy of mine who's lived here several years said that he met an old Japanese man who was Lucas' inspiration for the character--Lucas knew him somehow. Unfortunately I didn't get details and that buddy has left the country. So fast forward to a couple of months ago: I was watching TV and this guy was talking about the new Star Wars flick and they flashed up a picture of Yoda, and then next to it a pic of an old Japanese man named Yorida (family name), who is apparently still alive, living in some small town in Japan. My Japanese ain't so good so I couldn't really tell what they were saying about him. Does anyone have the skinny on this? My google-fu, as they say, fails me. [more inside]
