Funny insurance commercial This is a funny insurance commercial. I think it aired during the 2002 Super Bowl. I can watch it over and over again.

THIS IS WATER This talk by the late David Foster Wallace might just change the way you see the tiny, sometimes annoying, details of life. This simple unChristian talk might just blow your mind & Make You a Better Christian. This was the commencement speech he gave at Kenyon College in 2005. The speech is published in a short book called This is Water.

Comfortably Numb - Dar Williams & Ani DiFranco Dar Williams covers Pink Floyd with a little help from Ani DiFranco. I’m setting myself up for an asskicking but I might prefer this version over the original. Kick away, folks.

Lincoln Humphries ALS Nomination Share away - Get this out there! Another view on the ALS #IceBucketChallenge - Having a different view does not mean that you disagree with the good that something is doing or has done. In no way have I helped in the making of or contributed to the content of this video, just really liked what he had to say so have stuck it on YouTube. What Lincoln had to say on his post: Thanks for the nomination Jorge Cadona. I’d like to nominate everyone everywhere. www.cancer.org.au www.wateraid.org www.charitywater.org http://j.mp/1nmrKIl www.redcross.org.au www.rspca.org.au www.lifeline.org.au www.salvos.org.au www.vinnies.org.au Thanks for the support guys. Really I just thought this would be a creative way to get out of pouring cold water over myself; it’s really cold and wet already here at the moment. Just to clarify, nothing against the ALS Project, kudos to them for orchestrating a viral trend raising awareness/funds. However which charity receives the most awareness/funds shouldn’t be determined by who can come up with the best social media gimmick. There have been more than 1 million ice bucket video uploads and only 13 million dollars raised. Considering the individual wealth and celebrity star power involved, those figures are terribly disproportionate; because too many people have completely missed the point. Sorry to get political, but while I’ve got your attention: Everyone (not just Aussies) should take a close look at their governments’ investments (and cuts) into medical research. Those numbers go into the billions, just for some perspective. Again, instead of pouring ice on your head, get informedwww.cancer.org.au www.wateraid.org www.charitywater.org http://j.mp/1nmrKIl www.redcross.org.au www.rspca.org.au www.lifeline.org.au www.salvos.org.au www.vinnies.org.au Thanks for the support guys.

80-odd years of happy Sixty residents and staff at the Diana Isaac Retirement Village in Christchurch combined all their considerable talents to come up with this tribute, 80-odd years of happy. The residents wanted to show their children and grandchildren just what they’re made of!

Bill Cosby - Himself The brilliant stand up act, here is Bill Cosby - Himself. Bill talks about various things from the foolishness of drugs, alcohol, having a ‘good time’, and going to the dentist, before getting to his main topic; himself. From his childhood to his wife, to natural childbirth and his children, this is hilarious, wholesome family entertainment at its best. Filmed in Canada. Want to see Mr. Cosby, _himself?_ Here’s the link to his channel. :) http://j.mp/1pwPxJB
