Putting things in focus

Once in a while, you need to just focus and see the beautiful things out there. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=731h4B1QGJs

Playing fetch with a big, dumb, lovable dog

Sometimes even a very good dog decides that she's going to do what she wants to do and does it.

Video of the day: We want to be entertained. We need fiction.

Again, Max Landis, nails it. This is the end to a short film he made about wrestling. It's pretty entertaining, but the ending is where he nails it. It is where he explains to us why we need things like "fake" wrestling, movies, novels, and other kinds of fiction. We want to be entertained, because, ...

What really “ruins” childhood?

The College Humor people have done it again... They've gone done and made me think. I wrote a post about television the other day, about how it was somewhat of a "third parent" in teaching a lot of us about right and wrong. Well, here is a skit from CH on how maybe we should ...

How Korea sees unwed mothers

This is an interesting and eye-opening video. It deals with how women in Korea are treated when they become pregnant out of wedlock. You think the United States is "conservative" about marriage... Just wait until you listen to this: http://youtu.be/f0SyJpn5Fp8   It is a very sobering video from an otherwise funny and informative couple of ...

Video of the Day: Flight of the Eagle

We have very sophisticated computers to do everything that this eagle's brain did to fly from the Eiffel Tower to its handler's arm. I don't know about you, but that blows my mind.

I went out and took some pictures of the Moon

I still don't understand how people can look at the Moon and not be amazed by it. I'm also confused as to why our elected leaders are making it so hard for us to get off this rock and go to places like the Moon or Mars or beyond. In the meantime, here are some great pictures and a video that I took.
