Great video Pol. I smell a long thread coming on.

On the same theme, drums are amazing too. Remember kick drums that could walk forwards faster than you could and Pearl Maxwin drums?

Great clip, Polly and there's a ton of profundity under the glib humor that should not go unnoticed.. we take so much for granted, though I suspect all past generations will always have a version of this opinion on the current generations.

I've seen that clip before. It's brilliant.

Ah...I love this clip! It's a good one to re-visit every once in a while, for perspective!

Thanks Pahlianha...I like it alot!

I remember the first time I got into my Conestoga wagon and made the six week trip across the country to go to Vegas to Gamble. Damn the roads were terrible.

What's wrong with that video? Aspect ratio is all buggered, sound is wonky and when I go full screen, you can see huge blobs of pixels?

Lame.

Yeah! The fact that it's not in high def is total BS! ;-) BTW, I miss Conan.

OK, this just begs for the old Four Yorkshiremen sketch:

Hahahaha.....LOL.

so true, so true.

I had a brief moment of this morning with my 3 and 1/2 year old who wanted to watch a certain "kid show" we don't think is educational over his normal "educational" TV show we will let him watch. And all I could think was "when I was a kid, there were NO childrens programming on during this time of day, you should be happy to even have a choice..." But of course, this would have made no sense to him. Which goes back to when I was kid discussing TV with my mother and her explaining to me there was no such thing as a TV when she was a little kid, and at the time, that made no sense to me.

Ah, but you see the people who are doing hardest, even if many of them have already lived well past Mali's average lifespan of 37 years (last time I looked). Doctors see suffering and police see crims.

However, as a statistician, I may not be a reliable judge since I'm the kind of person who thinks that if your head's in the oven and your feet are in the freezer then you are doing just fine ...

Love that vid, though. I am one who is in a perpetual state of wonder whenever I fly. I always want the window seat so I can get that amazing panoramic view of the world, see the views and/or watch the clouds; I never tire of their shapes and textures. I hope to never grow up :)

Thanks, guess my searching skills are superior... Well, it's either that, or I spend way too much time on the Internet.

That sketch is so great, I actually watched through three of four different versions before deciding which one to post, and I laughed at each one.

I don't think it's so much that your search skills are superior, I think it's more you've got better search tools and a fast connection.

why...back in my day, we had to search by using the food allergies of an author's eldest cousin and our packets were carried by quadriplegics piloting canoes

Sheer bloody luxury ...

Back in my day we couldn't search for anything at all! We took what we were given.

It didn't help that we spent 27 hours of each day blindfolded and locked under the stairwell. Once a week they'd push scraps under the door for us - if we were lucky!

Yeah, I love cats like Louis C. K. Biting observation/perception/commentary.
A wise buddy of mine (ex-Marine Viet Nam combat vet) once said "people who sweat the small stuff have obviously never encountered intersecting automatic weapons fire".

Re: Our lives are so hard!
 
...and there are those that are whining about how myface or spacebook is taking over their lives because they have to deal messaging so much...

...sometimes the simple life seems like the most satisfying...I don't know, do we need that much technology?

Advancement or happiness?

Experience or innocence?

Very wise man, indeed. Its all about perspective. It can change in an instant depending on a single event or experience.

Usually it's something dumb like a fall that does it. We humans are pretty robust critters but we can also be surprisingly fragile at times.

Just last night and this morning I was wracked with intense chills and back/kidney pains. I was sure it was the flu at one stage. Then I was ok. It turned out that I had a tooth abscess which gave me a mild dose of blood poisoning. Once I flossed this molar that had been bothering me for a few days and used antiseptic mouthwash I was fine.

It's amazing the things that can malfunction out of the blue ...

Make hay while the sun shines ...

Re: Our lives are so hard!
 
I've heard of that before, the toothache/poison thing, but never knew of anyone firsthand. Glad it turned out OK Pol, I don't know if I could go on here without our little Pollyanna.....

Pollyanna 06-10-2010 03:10 AM

Re: Our lives are so hard!
 
Tell you what, Larry, the tooth thing is hard work! Infants can actually die of it if they get infected gums while teething. However, a big (increasingly so) critter like I am is a lot harder to knock off ...

I've heard dentists say it used to be a decently common cause of death before endodontics, but don't know much abt it (besides scaring the crap out of me)

That's a great clip! I'm always amazed when I fly too. I flew to NY last week and couldn't believe all the people who were closing the windows, and I'm thinking, "How often do you get to see the planet from 5 miles up?"

People spend a lot for houses/apartments/condos with views and here's the BEST view of the world in the world and people are closing the windows!

Amazing.

I can only imagine how bad life must have been back in my Grandfather's day.

I look at old black and white photos of him and I think how dull the world must have been without color.

Good grief! Glad I went to the doctor, but fortunately didn't need antibiotics. Our lives are more tenuous than we know ...

Couldn't agree more. It makes sense if the person's afraid, but for me it's always a buzz!
