Mom: Another Update

Well, Mom went back into the hospital for a few more days, but she home again. This time she has on oxygen as her heart needs some help. She'll be seeing her cardiologist soon.

Some Talk About The Ten Commandments

I don't mean the actual Ten Commandments, although I do talk about them briefly. No, I go on about the 1956 Cecil B DeMille classic film. I go through the some of the story and focus on Moses' girlfriend and how she can't think of a lie at a point at which a lie would have avoided so much. And later she talks sense to her boyfriend, but...
Well, you'll have to listen to get he rest.

Pedantic Moment: The Pyramids Weren't Always In Rough Shape

The Exodus, which likely didn't actually happen, took place in 1440BCE or 1290BCE. The last pyramids in Egypt were completed in 1700BCE. But the quick shot of them in the film had them looking the way they do now. I would have thought they would be in better shape.
And Then There Are These Two Assholes
On November 25, 2017, a gunman killed 26 people and wounded an additional 20 in the First Baptist Church. Included in the dead is one of the daughters of the church's Pastor. Along come two delusional shit stains who believe the mass shooting never happened, and they make it their mission in life to expose the truth by harassing the father of a dead girl.
It's infuriating.
You can find the Vice video here.
WatchMojo For Shame
I end the show ranting about a video put out by YouTuber WatchMojo. They do daily Top Ten list videos that deal with pop culture. Well, one list was about the Top Ten most electrifying live bands. I still haven't been able to get through it for two reasons.
One: The greatest rock band ever, The Who, got ranked at #10. 10?! Any position lower than the top three is an incredible insult. Of course, I would put them at #1.
Two: The youngster who does the voice can't even pronounce Pete Townshend's name correctly!
For shame, WatchMojo! For shame!
Here's the video, see if you can get through it.
