The whole BP oil spill (with few legal ramifications so far, although apparently there is a cap on the damages which BP would be required to pay) and the recurrent stories of copyright violations (with many outrageous fines to poor saps who got caught downloading movies and music) got me thinking: is anyone aware of a nice infographic of different fines issued / punitive damages awarded for different crimes? I am basically curious how it would look like for different countries, and if it could be used as a rough "how much we value what" scale. [more inside]

Do movies shape the way we imagine things or vice versa? I notice that when I dream/daydream/concept that I often think very cinematically (meaning imagining things staged/put together/"filmed" even in a motion picture narrative style).

Statsfilter: I have a bunch of noisy measurements. Each has an (x,y) coordinate and a "score" for that location. Most of the scores are trustworthy, but with the occasonal outlier. I want to come up with a function f(x,y) that estimates what the score at (x, y) would be (whether or not I have an observation at exactly that location). I'd like the function to be smooth and resilient to noise. Can someone point me in the right direction? [more inside]
