South African weather updates on MSNBC in the US. Why?

Why does MSNBC broadcast South African (and no other international) weather updates when I am located in California? They frequently come on at 12:30am PT and have done so for the last few months, so it is not due to a specific weather event. MSNBC is shown in South Africa although that alone wouldn't seem to explain it. Is this a mistake, S.A. tourism ministry advertising, something else? Has anyone else seen this?

Looking for an old South African TV mini-series...

Does anyone know where (or even if) I can get hold of a copy of the 1980's SABC (South African TV) series 'The John Ross Story: An African Adventure', made and set around the same time and locations as their excellent 'Shaka Zulu' series? I know it exists but I can find no mention of its availability in any format, or even at the IMDB... Thanks in advance!

Safe, Cheap Parking on the Southside of Chicago

I've got friends from Bloomington, Indiana driving up to Chicago to visit for a few days. They were going to take the Amtrak out of Indianapolis, but the schedule is extremely inconvenient. I'm thinking they should drive up and try and park near a Metra or CTA station on the south side of Chicago, and take public transportation into the city. Any suggestions on what would be the best station to pick? [more inside]

I Wanna Do Bad Things With You

MusicFilter: Mrs. Billtron would like more music like the opening song from HBO's True Blood, "Bad Things" by Jace Everett. She likes the sound of Chris Isaak and Junior Brown, which are the closest things in our mp3 collection, but misses the spooky vampire and warewolve ambience of the theme song. Any suggestions? Suggestions should err on the side of New Orleans rather than Nashville, since she just got back from Louisiana and really misses it.

PS I am really enjoying reading Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale at the moment.

Is this racist?

An upper class white Southern lady says of an athlete while watching sports on TV: "Look at him, he's dark. He's like charcoal." Is that a racist comment or am I oversensitive? There were no black people in the room when the comment was made. It made me uncomfortable but I didn't say anything.

South Beach eating and drinking?

Anybody have good recomendations on eating and nightlife in South Beach? Primarily interested in ceviche, cuban food, seafood, lighter fare, not really interested in Italian or big heavy meals. We have a reservation at Talula, thinking about Ola and would like to know about some of the newer places. Price does not matter. Nightlife we like loungey chill places, maybe a club one night if its worth it, not interested in sports bars, etc. Any other tips appreciated. We will be in town from a Thursday to Sunday.

ingmar bergman, who?

In the "Casa Bonita" episode of South Park, Jimmy tells the setup of a knock-knock joke: -Knock-knock! -Who's there? -Ingmar Bergman! -Ingmar Bergman, who? Before he can tell us the punchline, he is literally punched-out by Cartman. So my question is, does anyone know of an existing punchline to this joke? My hunch is that the South Park guys just made this one up. And if that's the case, can anyone think of a great punchline for this setup?
