I did a search for this and couldn't find that it had been posted. Do yourself a favor and watch VP Biden's speech to the families of fallen troops. Wow.

Wow indeed. That packed quite a punch. I don't recall any politician ever baring their soul like that. Only Joe. :cry:

I didn't even know how to react ... it left me speechless.





Whatever happens in November, I take comfort in knowing that for at least 4 years of my life, we had two good, decent, caring people leading this country.

From the BBC, "What a Wonderful World" read by David Attenborough. Do full-screen; it is HD.











[edit]Not Louis Armstrong, but the song version from a rather different singer and country: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=dH1_Xu9f_io&NR=1[/edit]





[edit]

[link]Wikipedia,http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/What_a_Wonderful_World[/link] Intended as an antidote for the increasingly racially and politically charged climate of everyday life in the United States, the song also has a hopeful, optimistic tone with regard to the future, with reference to babies being born into the world and having much to look forward to. The song was initially offered to Tony Bennett, who turned it down. Thereafter, it was offered to Louis Armstrong [1968]. The song was not initially a hit in the United States, where it sold fewer than 1,000 copies because the head of ABC Records did not like the song and so did not promote it, but was a major success in the United Kingdom, reaching number one on the UK Singles Chart. In the US, the song hit #116 on the Billboard Bubbling Under Chart. It was also the biggest-selling single of 1968 in the UK where it was among the last pop singles issued by HMV Records before becoming an exclusive classical music label. The song made Louis Armstrong the oldest male to top the chart, at sixty-six years and ten months old. Armstrong's record was broken in 2009 when a cover version of "Islands in the Stream" recorded for Comic Relief — which included 68-year-old Tom Jones — reached number one.





ABC Records' European distributor EMI forced ABC to issue a What A Wonderful World album in 1968 (catalogue number ABCS-650) which did not chart in the US due to ABC's non-promotion of it, but did chart in the UK where it was issued by Stateside Records with catalogue number SSL 10247 and peaked on the British chart at #37.





The song gradually became something of a standard and reached a new level of popularity. In 1988, Louis Armstrong's 1968 recording was featured in the film Good Morning, Vietnam and was re-released as a single, hitting #32 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart in February 1988. The single charted at number one for the fortnight ending June 27, 1988 on the Australian chart.

We need that antidote today.[/edit]

Doesn't help that the creator / director fed into that crap in his interview with Alex Jones (and admits to being a 911 truther).[/break1]youtube.com/watch?v=YsPlPohPa1c]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YsPlPohPa1c(edited to clarify)

When I came across this on one of the nutz sites that I visit, I had no idea that there was so much out there about this film. It is denounced as Illuminati programming of the masses, praised as revealing the dark secrets of the Illuminati, and heralded as the announcement of a major calamity soon to come. The author/director does seem to have worked almost every possible bit of Illuminati symbolism into the film, along with 9/11 conspiracy theories and Antichrist theories about President Obama. It fits that the director worked on the Golem character, which was truly creepy.





Some of the comments on Jones' site say that the director is on "the good side" while others basically declare that he is a tool of Satan. Others claim that he cannot be the director because he understands so little of this film. How he was able to work "full-time" for five years on the film is a bit mysterious to me. Residual income from his previous films must be fantastic.





I wonder who the target audience is. I think those who have taken Zeitgeist as the truth may be that audience.

“I asked what kind of protective gear I was going to have, and they said ‘nothing,’” Yoshitake said laughing. “I had a baseball cap with me, and I said ‘I better wear that just in case.’” :shock: Today, 55 years later, the seemingly safe operation may have had some serious side effects: all six members of the group have had cancer, with four dying of it, according to Yoshitake and Luttrell.“In those days, nobody thought there could be any fear of developing cancer from these nuclear tests,” said Yoshitake who survived stomach cancer. “But … there must be some direct correlation between these tests and cancer.” Yoshitake noted that many of his “camera friends” who filmed similar operations developed and died of cancer; most in their 40s and 50s.“In hindsight … it appears that it was not safe,” colon-cancer survivor Lutrell said.Read more: [/break1]foxnews.com/scitech/2012/07/27/how-does-it-feel-to-stand-under-nuclear-bomb/#ixzz22UdrRphX]http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2012/07/ ... z22UdrRphX

I give the Tech a B+. When the user complained about slower access versus the scroll, the tech should have taken that as a clue to show the usage of "bookmarks".Although, when I think about it, it is possible that the tech has had prior experience with the user and realized that explaining the differences between "page-based random access" versus "serial access" would have to wait for another day.
The wise man builds upon, and acknowledges, the contributions of those who came before.
