Viral Video

I got a link to this video via email, and I just find it charming.

First of all, because in high school, I was a big George Michael fan, and that song came out right around when I graduated from Tumwater High School, home of the mighty Thunderbirds.

Second, because I think republican big wigs tripped all over their evil plans, and I'm feeling pretty smug.

And the final reason I find this video charming is because I have rhythm, and the editing is timed perfectly with the music. It's a big deal to me.

So last week's episode of Battlestar Galactica was about biological weapons, genocide, torture, and what it is to be human.

I've been reading a fan based website, where the consensus was "kill 'em all!" I politely disagree, and I know it's science fiction, but I'm a little startled to see how easily some of the commenters are ready to accept biological weapons and potential genocide. Yikes.

I thought I was the only one, but the recapper at Television Without Pity expressed it better; being human is a choice.

For some reason I can't find the post where you showed the YouTube video for the wacky Japanese Rube Goldberg mini-segments, so this comment is horribly misplaced.

Nonetheless, I have found out what they are!
