The Greatest Truth Never Told - Full

I have only watched 30 minutes of this so far, but it is fascinating.  Not sure that I want to spend 4 more hours on this.  I am also not sure where it is going.  Maybe I will watch it in pieces.  It is a bit gloom and doom ...

Probably the Funniest Cat Video You'll Ever See

I can't help myself. At least once per year I watch this video
because the first 90 seconds makes me laugh myself silly.

Mark Twain Independence Day

Johnny Whitaker is about the same age as me. He was on the old TV
show "A Family Affair." I remember seeing him 40 years ago in a Tom
Sawyer movie...

George Carlin - Why You Are In Debt (explicit) 

Is Market Failure an argument against government? - David Friedman

I found the first 41 minutes to be an enlightening discussion about how economics leads to individual decision making and bad politics.  It is slightly technical, but I learned some new terms...

Also interesting is his discussion on Global Warming and population explosion starting at 65 minutes ...

Re: 9/11 As It Happened: First Reports and Second Crash from Multiple Media

A better view of the second plane ...

> First plane:

9/11 As It Happened: First Reports and Second Crash from Multiple Media

I think that this is real interesting. It takes about 90 seconds to
get to the 9-11 coverage. 20 seconds from the end we see the second
plane hit.

Never forget.

Bobby Kennedy anounces Martin Luther King's death, Indianapolic, IN 1968

You have probably seen this before, in which case you might not want
to see this again, but I am blown away by the quality of the impromptu

I think that Bobby Kennedy would have gotten my vote because he was
someone who could deal with racial strife.

The first minute of this video is from the original Bambi movie, and is IMHO one of the best parts of the movie...

... the last 30 seconds are from Bambi II, which is a direct to video movie made in 2003.  This part seems less interesting.

Sugar Dangers - Dr. Richard Johnson Lecture (Part 2 of 3)

This is an interesting video about high blood pressure, salt, uric acid, weight gain, and sugar.

In part three he mentions that Vitamin C neutralizes uric acid's effects.

ORIGINAL Elephant Painting

Check out this video on YouTube:

I am impressed. I think that maybe the elephant had to be trained to
do this, so it is a question of if it understands what it is painting?
I suspect so. The flower on the painting was a little over the top,
which is why I figure that the elephant was trained how to paint. I
would be more impressed if there were some spontaneity.
