Happy Thanksgiving 2018

ThanksgivingWe’re not doing much for Thanksgiving this year. I simply cooked two side-dishes yesterday. And most of today, I will be working. So I thought I would present a few interesting holiday things:

Woody Allen Jesus

I haven’t checked in recently with Tim Minchin. Truthfully, a little of him goes a long way. But he’s still good. Derren Brown is a mentalist/magician. I figured you would want to know. I figure you know who Simon Pegg is.

The Komodo Dragon

Almost no one finds Bob & Ray as funny as I do. But they are wrong.

The Lost Plague

This is a good video by CGP Grey. I can’t help but think of all the deadly diseases that the Europeans brought to America when the subject of Thanksgiving comes up. When I was a kid, in as much as it was talked about, the destruction of native peoples was always told as one of differing technologies. Of course, that was always nonsense. Guns at that time were not that useful. But given that Europeans had become used to living in filth, they could blithely wage germ warfare and convince themselves they were really badasses.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I have to get back to work. I hope you have a good Thanksgiving. If you want, you can read my 3,700-word Thanksgiving Round-Up. I’m not recommending.

  1. Thanks for these! I hadn’t seen any of them before. Minchin’s very funny, although he could take a page from Tom Lehrer and realize shorter is better. Bob & Ray remind us that brain-dead interviewers of the FOX/CNN ilk are nothing new. And the Grey videos are simply brilliant.
