It Seems This Song Is Relevant Again

Our current leader with the famous face, our fifth grader in the oval office, is making with the tough talk against the world's other child leader. There is a fear of nuclear attack. Boy, we sure live in interesting times.

In 1984, XTC released the song This World Over. It's a vision of a post-nuclear apocalyptic world written by Andy Partridge, giving voice to the fears the world had about Pres. Reagan and the Soviets destroying the world. There were a lot of songs like this one in those days.
Looks like they're relevant again.

A Pedantic Moment: Get The Lyrics Right!

As I talked about that song by XTC, a Pedantic Moment came up. It was a minor one. Google has part of the lyrics wrong for this song. It lists "dry odd numbered limbs" as "dry off numbered limbs." That don't make no sense given what the song is about.

Yeesh! Good job, Google.

Pastor Robert Jeffress Thinks He Knows What God Wants

Of course, I don't believe in a god, but I do enjoy when certain religious types seem so certain as to what their god thinks.

Pastor Robert Jeffress, a spiritual advisor to our child President, says that God sanctions whatever actions Pres. Trump might decided to take against North Korea, including using nukes.

I may be wrong , but I think the pastor may be one of those religious extremists rooting for End Times.

I Have An Unpopular Opinion
It's been a thing on Facebook lately: People asking others to post an unpopular opinion in the comment thread. They ask others either agree or disagree, but do not argue.

So, I posted my unpopular opinion about OJ Simpson. As related to his parole for his conviction that landed him in prison for the last nine years, I think...

Oh, but that would be a spoiler. You'll have to listen to the show. However, you can probably guess, since the opinion is unpopular.

Children Are Our Future And How To Use A Ladder  

This young man is trying to get a rag off a pipe with a ladder. Yep. He's using a ladder. Uh huh. That's what he's doing.

Incidentally, this is an example of a very rare occasion when making video in the portrait format actually works.

My Conspiracy Theorist Friend Thinks He's Checkmated Me

Watch the following video...

If you are a conspiracy theorist who believes "they" are trying to control the populace of the world with some chemical put into the atmosphere at high altitudes using jet airliners creating chemtrails, you will think this video shows a CIA director admitting to just that. As my friend believes.

If you are not a conspiracy theorist and you understand what contrails are, you will hear this fellow talking about ways to slow global warming so that "the world economy additional time to transition from fossil fuels."

My friend thinks this is an admission and that "they" have been doing this for years. I think it shows that conspiracy theorists hear what they want to hear.
Top Three Cool Things Of The Week

Here are the Top Three Cool Things from this week.

3) A Russian satellite has taken a series of pictures of the earth and a video of the images has been made from the photographs. It provides a different perspective of our home. It's way cool.

2) Youtuber Captain Disillusion has a new video out. This time he's showing how some of those amazing trick shot videos are made. Not all rely on computer trickeration, so are just take after take until the shot is made.

1) An optical illusion created by Victoria Skye is way cool. It demonstrates nicely how people just can't say, "I know what I saw."

  1. Whoops! I forgot to put this link in the show notes. Here's the link to the CIA website. Try as I might, I can't find anything on global engineering.
