MUNCIE Indiana – Fox News pundit Sean Hannity is questioning those who question Mitt Romney on his history of paying no taxes.

.

Sean Hannity

.

“Those questions are irresponsible,” Hannity said on Thursday.

“People who want to know if I ever paid any taxes are probably poor.”

Senate minority leader Harry Reid recently charged that sources inside Bain Capital, the private equity firm Romney ran, confirm that for as much as ten years Mitt Romney paid the equivalent of no taxes.

.

“It feels GREAT to be filthy rich and not pay any taxes!”

.

“That’s zero taxes,” Said Reid. “Zero taxes paid by a rich guy who says that if he is elected president he will cut taxes for the rich even farther than they are right now.”

.

“If I am elected president, not only will rich people pay no taxes, everyone else will have to give them money! Big smelly piles of it! And I will also bomb Iran.”

.

Romney’s return from his ill-fated European campaign trip was dogged by reporters yelling questions at him about Reid’s charges.

.

“IT great to be in England. Did I mention that I think your Olympic games suck? Hey, what smells funny?”

.

“Hey, Romney!”  a reporter yelled. “How many years did you pay zero tax?”

.

“You want me to remember? Only poor people need a memory. People like me hire accountants to remember that stuff for us.”

.

“That reporter ‘s question was totally irresponsible!” Hannity yelled at a group of immigrants.  “And any questions about his time as governor of Massachusetts are irresponsible.”

“Hey, did I tell you about that great health care system I started when I was governor? It is exactly Like President Obama’s health care system and it worked great. But I am totally against President Obama’s health care system, and if I am elected president I will get rid of it on day one of my presidency. I know that sounds contradictory, but so what? Enough voters won’t notice or won’t care to get me elected!”

.

“And so are questions about Bain Capital firing workers and giving their jobs to people in other countries.  And it is totally irresponsible to ask questions about the gay kids Romney bullied when he was in high school. “

.

“Hold him down, boys!”

.

“Or his views on Jews being hard workers and Palestinians being lazy. Questions about that stuff are irresponsible, too.”

.

“Hey, its great to be here in Jerusalem talking to a bunch of hard working, thrifty Jews. I love Jews. They are all the right height. I have a joke: how many culturally inferior Palestinians does it take to screw in a light bulb? 100! See, they are so lazy that it takes a bunch of them to do something even one thrifty, hardworking Jew could do. Did I say how great it is to be here talking to a bunch of Jews? Did I mention that if I am elected president I start a war with Iran?”

.

When asked what questions would be responsible, Mr. Hannity said “Any question about whether Barak Obama is a half breed muslim.”

.

.

“Or trees. Trees in Michigan. How the trees in Michigan are the right height,” Hannity concluded.

.

On the other hand, Mitt hates the trees in Minnesota. They are NOT the right height.

No joke: it’s real -

.

A Reuters/Ipsos poll showed on Sunday that most Americans oppose President Barack Obama’s healthcare reform even though they strongly support its provisions.

.

.

Medicare is a government run health care program.

.

This seems, well, sort of stupid, if not crazy, so People of Earth: Attention located an average American to interview and find out what is going on.

.

The average American voter.

.

PEOPLE OF EARTH:  Thank you for speaking with me today to clear up how you, the average American voter, feels about President Obama’s reforms of the American medical care system.

AVERAGE AMERICAN:  It’s simple, Paul.  Like most Americans, I vehemently oppose the President’s plan while strongly supporting the reforms within that plan.

PEOPLE OF EARTH:  Let me ask you a different question.  Do you like cheese?

AVERAGE AMERICAN: I love cheese.

.

Loves cheese.

.

PEOPLE OF EARTH:  Do you like mozzarella?

AVERAGE AMERICAN:  You bet. I love mozzarella.

PEOPLE OF EARTH:  Do you like tomato sauce?

AVERAGE AMERICAN:  I sure do.

.

Loves tomato sauce.

.

PEOPLE OF EARTH:  Do you like dough that can be baked into a crust?

AVERAGE AMERICAN:  You mean like pizza crust?

PEOPLE OF EARTH:  Yes. Like pizza crust.

AVERAGE AMERICAN:  I can eat it all day.

.

Likes pizza crust.

.

PEOPLE OF EARTH:  Great. Do you like mozzarella cheese pizza?

AVERAGE AMERICAN:  No, I do not.

.

Does not like cheese pizza.

.

PEOPLE OF EARTH:  Why not?

AVERAGE AMERICAN:  Because I am sick and tired of the government shoving pizza down my throat.  And a black man made that pizza.  It doesn’t taste right. It doesn’t taste American.  It tastes Kenyan. I bet there is dog on that pizza.  I heard it on Fox News.

.

.

PEOPLE OF EARTH: Perhaps your opposition has something to do with the spices used to prepare the pizza.

AVERAGE AMERICAN:  I don’t believe in spices. Like global climate change.  Spices aren’t expressly described in the Bible or the U.S. Constitution, so spices don’t exist.  Especially garlic.

.

Doesn’t believe in garlic.

.

PEOPLE OF EARTH:  Garlic doesn’t exist?

AVERAGE AMERICAN:  Nope.

PEOPLE OF EARTH:  I think there was some in the salad I ate for lunch.

AVERAGE AMERICAN:  No there wasn’t.  Garlic doesn’t exist.

PEOPLE OF EARTH:  But I ate some.

AVERAGE AMERICAN:  No you didn’t.  Look, do you see the word “garlic” used in the Bible or the Constitution?

.

Has never read the Bible or the Constitution, but believes in their infallibility.

.

PEOPLE OF EARTH:  No.  I don’t think the American Founding Fathers discussed garlic.

AVERAGE AMERICAN:  Well, there you go. I proved it doesn’t exist.

PEOPLE OF EARTH:  But I ate some.

AVERAGE AMERICAN: So?

PEOPLE OF EARTH:  Solvitur ambulando.

AVERAGE AMERICAN: Huh?

.

Doesn’t know that was Latin.

.

PEOPLE OF EARTH:   Nothing. Thank you. I have no further questions.

AVERAGE AMERICAN:  Any time, Paul.  We’re about to sit down to dinner. Would you like to join us?

PEOPLE OF EARTH: What are you serving?

AVERAGE AMERICAN:  Mozzarella cheese on a baked crust with tomato sauce.  My favorite.

.

Loves cheese and tomato sauce backed onto a bread-like crust, but hates pizza because he heard bad things about it on Fox News.

.

Postscript:

Global climate change is causing rising sea levels that are causing the erosion of coastline in those American states with ocean borders.  The State of Virgina is one of them – the same state with a Republican majority intending to pass a law that requires any woman seeking an abortion to have ahtransvaginal ultrasound/prior to obtaining an abortion.

Virginia’s beaches are eroding, and there is a bill in the Virginia legislature that seeks funds to study how to best address the changing sea levels and their effect on Virginia’s Atlanatic coastline.  However, prominent Republicans refused to support the bill because they do not believe in global climate change or “changing sea levels,”  but the bill obtained their support when the bill’s author amended the bill to replace the phrase with “persistent flooding.”   http://hamptonroads.com/2012/06/lawmakers-avoid-buzzwords-climate-change-bills 

God bless America and save us from the dark madness that is sweeping across out once great nation.

HEADLINE – Japan’s reactor operator apologizes for radiation release

Posted in Headline, Headlines, Humor, News, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on April 12, 2011 by paulboylan

TOKYO – A Japanese power company executive apologized on Saturday for spreading radiation into the air and sea due to preventable mechanical malfunctions caused by negligent operational protocols and substandard maintenance of nuclear reactors damaged by recent earthquakes and a tsunami.

“I totally apologize for spreading radiation into the air and sea due to preventable mechanical malfunctions caused by negligent operational protocols and substandard maintenance of nuclear reactors damaged by recent earthquakes and a tsunami,” Sakae Muto, a TEPCO vice president, told a news conference.

“I totally goofed. It was totally my fault, and for that I am totally sorry. My bad,” Muto added, pointing out that he should get some credit for “totally owning” the problem and not trying to point the finger of blame at Japanese nuclear safety regulators who either repealed or failed to enforce safety regulations.

“This guy is totally ruining it for all of us,” said Gene McTutle, a high level executive with Goldman Sachs. “Never apologize for anything. Never admit you made a mistake. Never ever.  Insist that you are too big to fail and then convince the government to fix your private mistakes by bailing you out by giving you lots and lots of public money that you can give to yourself as bonuses and that you will never pay back. That’s how this works,” McTutle concluded.

RIKUZENTAKATA, Japan – As Japan’s prime minister held another in an endless stream of press conferences to describe in great detail the Japanese government’s efforts to fix damaged nuclear reactors, frustrated tsunami victims complained that the government has been too focused on the nuclear crisis that followed the massive wave.

“Hey! Over here! 165,000 people living in cardboard boxes and packing crates! HELLO?? Is anyone home??” 35-year-old Megumi Shimanuki shouted at the Prime Minister from the crowd gathered at the press conference. “Yeah, yeah, highly radioactive water is leaking into the sea. Blah, blah, blah. I need a house,” Shimanuki yelled.

“Go find the corporate executives and their stooge government regulators who willfully and knowingly decided to operate unsafe nuclear reactors right near the ocean, line them up against a wall, and shoot them,” suggested Ken Hashimoto, a fellow tsunami evacuee.

.

.

“Kill them all, then confiscate their multiple homes, expensive automobiles and jewelry they bought with the profits they made cutting safety corners.  Sell that property and use the money to get me some food,” Hashimoto added.

In response to charges of criminal regulatory negligence that resulted in the clearly apparent failure to build and maintain safe nuclear reactors, the Japanese government vowed to review Japan’s nuclear safety standards.

“We will review them, if we can find them,” promised Ken Fujikuma, Head of the Japanese Nuclear Industry Regulatory Commission and Late Night Drinking Games.

Fujikuma also pledged to “look into” the wisdom of running while holding scissors and playing Russian Roulette with fully loaded hand guns.

A STRATEGY FOR THE REINVIGORATION OF THE AMERICAN REPUBLICAN PARTY: SOME MODEST PROPOSALS

People of Earth, it is looking bad for the American Republican Party.  Reliable polls show that 19% of Americans now identify themselves as Republicans, compared with 48% just half a year ago.


How could this have happened?

How could this have happened?

And it is getting worse.  Recently Arlen Specter – a long-serving moderate Republican Senator – became a Democrat.  Even Joe the Plumber announced that he is leaving the Republican Party. You know things are bad when the GOP has become “too creepy” for Joe the Plumber.

The GOP is devolving into a “rump party” – i.e., a political party that, due to rigid ideology, becomes isolated from the main currents of national American life.  Traditional “family values” Republicans should be very concerned about becoming a rump party, primarily because of the gay jokes it will inflict upon the GOP.

The Republican Party is shrinking because mainstream America no longer listening to the Republican message.  Instead of developing a new, more relevant message, leading Republicans are shouting the old GOP message louder and louder, leading to bizarre results.

The new Republican voter.

The new Republican voter.

For example, Republican political leaders have just gone crazy opposing new federal hate crime legislation that includes “sexual orientation” as a category.

Here is how the new law would work:  let’s say you punch someone in the face.  That is a crime called battery.  But under the proposed federal law, the penalty for that  crime would be enhanced if you call your victim a “fag” before hitting him.

The Republican Party snapped into action to oppose this bill.  Speaker after speaker in the House of Representatives forcefully warned that, if this new law is passed, it will “chill free speech.”

democrat stimulus bill passes house

“So-called ‘hate crime’ laws actually serve only one purpose -” said Kevin Theriot, Senior Counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund,  “- the criminalization of citizens based on whatever thoughts, beliefs, and emotions they have that are not considered to be ‘politically correct.’”

Mr. Theriot is wrong and anyone with half a brain knows it.  The new law does not punish people for their thoughts or beliefs. Even if the new law passes, every American will still have the God-given right to hate anyone as much as they want.  The new law doesn’t discourage you from walking up to any homosexual and saying “I hate you because you are a homosexual.”  The law doesn’t discourage that – but it does discourage you from punching him or her in the face after saying it.  The law does not “chill” speech, thought or feeling.  It chills assault.

And that’s the problem. The Republican Party isn’t opposing the new law to protect  free speech – the GOP is against the new law because they want to protect your right to punch a homosexual in the face because you hate homosexuals.

The Republican base.

The Republican base.

This does not play well with the  “post-Bush” American electorate. The vast majority of Americans do not hate homosexuals, don’t care if they can get married, and can’t understand why the GOP seems hell-bent on promoting hate by opposing laws that discourage acts of violence motivated by hate.

“It has nothing to do with hating homos,” explains the Reverend Trip Knuckles, an Evangelical Christian. “Our opposition to the new law has everything to do with discouraging our children from choosing the homosexual lifestyle,” said, Knuckles. “Fewer kids will decide to become gay if they are afraid they might get lynched if they do. The new law undermines that fear by discouraging violence against homosexuals. And that’s bad.”

Bad craziness.

Bad craziness.

Arlene Smedby, Chairwoman for The New Republican Majority, sees a different answer. “In the beginning, we hated blacks,” Smedby said. “ And that worked great.  Then came the Civil Rights movement and the American people stopped listening to segregationist slogans and passed laws against lynchings.  But the GOP adapted, replacing blacks with communists. When the Cold War ended, the GOP adapted again by targeting homosexuals. Gay bashing has had a good run, but now it is time for the GOP find some other group to hate.”

Other leading Republicans also advocate reform. “We risk losing our national political influence if we refuse to change with the times,” said Track Hemplin, unemployed rodeo promoter.  “I recommend we embrace homosexuals – not too close, of course, because you don’t know where they’ve been or what they’ve been doing – and refocus on hating illegal immigrants, especially the ones who refuse to learn English,” Hemplin concludes.

The perfect choice because they are powerless.

The perfect choice because they are powerless.

“Studies show that Americans will hate illegal immigrants just as much as they used to hate and fear blacks, commies and homos,” said Trig Smythe, just some guy waiting to buy crank outside of a Wasilla 7-11. “Hate is a traditional Republican unifying force.  But exploiting hate can be tricky.  We depended on enough people hating blacks, liberals and people with foreign sounding names to win the last election.  We didn’t realize how few people hate blacks, liberals and foreigners, even if their middle name is “Hussein.”  But I think we are on to something with illegal immigrants because they don’t speak English.”

A force for political unity.

A force for political unity.

“English is the American National language,” said SarahFan, an anonymous blogger. “I just want to punch people in the face who don’t speak English,” he/she/it said.

Will the GOP find a new group to hate before the party collapses?  Only time will tell.

SARAH PALIN’S GREATEST HITS!!!

[Alaska Governor Sarah Palin spoke at a right-to-life dinner last night in Evansville, Indiana via satellite (shown above). The governor teared up when discussing her son Trig who was diagnosed with Down syndrome before birth. "Trig is a miracle. He is the best thing that ever happened to me and I want other women to have that opportunity to give birth to mentally challenged children who will grow up and vote Republican," she said.]

(Ass. Press)

My dear friend, Betty – whom I am secretly in love with – asks me why I won’t leave Sarah Palin alone. “Your guy won,” Betty points out.

First of all, Obama was not and is not “my guy.” He won my vote by being the lesser of evils. And I wasn’t alone. Moderate Republicans like me were thrown under the political bus the moment John McCain chose Sarah Palin as his running mate. So we crossed party lines and voted for Obama – more out of protest against the insanity that has taken over our party than as a sign of support for Obama. If not for this cross-over vote, Obama would not have won.

But this created a problem that still has to be dealt with. When moderate Republicans like me left the GOP, we left behind the brain dead, ideologically driven, bible thumping morons that McCain was kissing up to when he chose Palin. And that means, like Iowa, these same morons will have a disproportionate influence on the next national elections.

And that is why I won’t leave Sarah Palin alone. She is still out there, and she is taking steps to run for president. She is actively kissing up to the idiot vote that the GOP now represents, which means it is actually possible that Palin will win the nomination.

So it is very, very important to remind people that Sarah Palin represents everything that has been wrong about America for the last 25 years. She is an utterly corrupt liar who believes in a perverted version of Jesus who approves of hate, and greed, and ignorance. Oh Lord, look what they’ve done to you and the evil they do in your name.

So I give you a video collecting Sarah’s finest moments during the last campaign. Watch it. It will be a test of your own personal mettle. If, after watching this you feel that Palin would be a good choice for President of the United States, then you are simply too stupid to vote. Or drive a car. Or carry sharp objects. Or raise children. You contribute nothing to the world other than being a means for evil people to get rich and stay rich and to give birth to and raise more idiots who will do the same stupid stuff. If you died this very moment the world would be a better place, because there would be one less moron for evil people to manipulate and one less idiot to meet up with some other idiot and misuse the miracle of life to create more idiots.

And just for fun:

WHY HASN’T OBAMA FIXED EVERYTHING YET?

Posted in Paying Attention with tags on January 29, 2009 by paulboylan

 

 

It has been more than 8 long days since “the Big O” was sworn in as the United States’ 44th President.

 

 

 

 

Well???

 

 

 

 

Why hasn’t the Big O fixed everything yet?  The economy is still in a tail spin.  America’s standing in the world hasn’t improved – well, not much.  It seems like nothing has changed.

 

 

 

 

When I voted for Obama, I did it because I was impressed with his traditional conservative values.  I voted for him because he promised to lower taxes and cut spending on social services.  I voted for him because he promised to be a tough Commander in Chief who would never, ever, ever leave Iraq to the heathen without first establishing Iraq as a Christian nation.

 

 

Hold on a second….

 

 

 

 

I was just informed that Obama didn’t promise to lower taxes and cut spending on social services and campaigned on a promise of withdrawing troops from Iraq.

 

 

 

 

Never mind.

SARAH PALIN’S 2012 STRATEGY: (Part One)

.

I am now convinced that Sarah Palin will be the next President of the United States.

.

milk-out-of-nose

.

.

No, really.  I’m not kidding. This isn’t a joke. Let me tell you why.

In a recent interview posted on Youtube, Palin “set the record straight” about her humiliating performance in the last election.  Most of Palin’s explanation centered on  her refusal to answer Katie Couric’s question “what newspapers do you read?” Most political analysts interpreted Palin’s refusal as an attempt to hide that she doesn’t read and isn’t very well informed.  But that’s not what happened at all.

“We got it completely wrong,” admits US Political Thought Editor-in-Chief Zev Wlcshznksnk. “Palin didn’t answer because, if she revealed that she reads to stay informed, then she would have risked alienating her political base.

.

Zev Wlcshznksnk

Zev Wlcshznksnk

.

“During the Reagan Revolution, the Republican Party – a party of wealthy business interests – succeeded in convincing voters comprised of economically disadvantaged high school and college dropouts who lacked critical thinking skills to support Republican candidates,” Wlcshznksnk continues.

Other pundits agree. “The rise of the stupid voter demographic coincides directly with the decline in reading skills,” explains Dr. Krista Schnurstein, Research Director at the National Institute for Moronic Studies. “Those who lose the ability to think critically because they cannot or do not read enough become suspicious and resentful of anyone “smart” or who can “speak well” – a common reason many Republican voters said they distrusted Barak Obama.

Dr. Krista Schnurstein

Dr. Krista Schnurstein

When seen in this light, Palin’s failure to answer Couric’s question becomes shrewd, if not brilliant.  Her recent explanation of her failure to answer only reinforces the growing appreciation for Palin’s political skill – and her potential to be our next President.

542389855_811a187e7b

Palin said “to me (Couric’s) question was more along the lines of, do you read, what do you guys do up there, what is it that you read, and perhaps I was too fliffant [sic] in my answer back to her.”

If Palin’s explanation sounds like a poor excuse that makes no sense, then you are probably educated and read recreationally.  But to a stupid person, Palin’s seemingly bizarre attempt to rewrite the question makes perfect sense. Stupid people are often asked questions they don’t understand or can’t answer.  In response, they manipulate reality to hide their ignorance and/or incompetence.

“Stupid people believe their lame excuses because it is the only way to maintain their illusion of self-respect,” says Armando Schwartz, inventor of the Vegomatic.  “By creating the kind of excuse that a stupid person would use, Palin is, essentially, encouraging stupid people to identify with her because if they call her out on her lies it would be the same as challenging their own dumb excuses for their own failures,” Schwartz concludes.

8527stupid-people-posters

This explains why Palin is still out there saying stupid things.  When she does, she is manipulating the media into pointing out and criticizing every dumb thing she says and does.  And when the media does this, it forces stupid voters to take sides with Palin against those criticizing her.

stupid_voter1

“In order to appeal to stupid voters, it is essential to demonstrate inconsistency,” says Professor Alan Shainwooks of the National Institute for Stupid Studies. “Stupid people live in a state of virtually constant confusion as they try to figure out what is going on,” Shainwooks says. “And being stupid often goes hand in hand with having a poor memory. Combine confusion and poor memory with a stupid person’s almost pathological need to make up excuses for their failings and mistakes, and you get a person who can’t keep their story straight if their life depended on it.”

Palin amply uses this strategy. In response to her interviews with Couric, Palin first said she approved of the interview in advance.  Then she said the McCain campaign forced her to do the interview. Then she denied saying that, claiming that the interview was her idea. And now Palin has returned to blaming the McCain campaign for forcing her to do it.

“A smart person would be concerned about Palin’s seeming inability to tell the truth,” says Mary Hemplin, an international authority on political trends and the author of The Rise of Stupididy in American Politics. “But a stupid person wouldn’t realize that Palin is constantly changing her story and contradicting herself because a stupid person will only remember the last thing Palin says, and how shiny the buttons on her sweater are.”

Probably can't read.

A stupid voter?

Palin’s contradictory statements also serve to distance her from the real reason John McCain lost the election. “McCain’s people knew they couldn’t win the election unless he could rally the stupid vote,” Shainwooks observes. “But McCain’s ultimate strategic blunder was not leaving the stage to Palin. McCain stayed in the spotlight. His rationality and intellect alienated enough stupid voters to keep them from voting, and that is why Obama won.”

Cardinal Stanley Moran

Palin demonstrates that she realizes this simple truth. By repeatedly blaming the McCain campaign for her failures she is attempting to appeal to those stupid voters who didn’t vote in the last election. And with critical reading skills continuing to decline and fewer students being able to afford a college education, Palin is betting that, if she can realize the full political potential of the growing stupid vote, it could put her in the White House.

Clyde Scoggins, a Palin supporter, is grateful for Palin’s efforts to avoid alienating her political base. “I got alienated once,” Scoggins says, “and those little guys did medical experiments on me and I wound up naked in a corn field. I sure don’t want that to happen again.”

SARAH PALIN IS BACK!!!

Posted in The Matrix with tags on January 9, 2009 by paulboylan

What a GREAT day! Palin is BACK – and she is just as stupid and incompetently evil as ever!

And I was on the verge of forgetting all of this:

Well guess what?  Sarah didn’t slink away into the shadows as any truly smart person in her position would have.  She isn’t trying to put distance between her and her idiotic performance as a (try not to laugh) candidate for the vice presidency.  She decided to set the record straight!

she has big balls.

That's right: she has big balls.

She has been interviewed by a conservative pundit, and in the interview she is so wonderful, reminding us what a huge ignorant, hypocritical fascist she is!

See for yourself!  Watch this incredibly entertaining vid and count how many times she blames the media for unfairly telling people the truth about her. Note how many times she hints that she is in favor of censorship of things she doesn’t agree with.  Witness the weirdness of her actually trying to say that criticism of her is somehow “sexist.”


Marvel at the way she excuses her inability to name anything she has read recently by deciding Katie Couric asked her a completely different question that Couric didn’t even get close to asking.  You just have to love someone who lies so brazenly and actually expects her audience to be stupid enough not to notice.  Oh! And PLEASE pay close attention to how she glosses over her white trash roots, including but not limited to her unwed teenage daughter.

Not trying as hard. Well, to be honest, the addition of the unwed teenage pregnant daughter sort of puts a different spin on things.

Not trying as hard.

Yes, once again, she demonstrates that she embodies everything wrong with America as she tries to appeal to the idiot vote.     Oh, there is so much to hate about her t hat you just have to love her!

WARNING: HOMO-EROTIC CONTENT

One of the most pressing ironies of this new electronic age is what is being lost as so much is being gained.  Through the Internet we are gaining a somewhat permanent historical record of events.  Future generations will look back and mark history, not by the birth of Christ (BC/AD) but BI and AI (Before the Internet and After the Internet).  If your great-great grandchildren want to know what happened today, they will access the true historical record as preserved online.

But, as rich as the historical record has become due to Google, Youtube and Ebay and the mega-terabyte archives being constructed to hold it all, our connection with the past that existed prior to the Internet is rapidly disappearing.  We are forgetting what life was like before the Information Age.  And when that happens, we will be the lesser, and will be prone to making mistakes becasue the lessons of the past will have vanished.

So, in this context, please view the vid I feature below.  I found it on Youtube, and it memorializes one of the earliest experiments attempting to synchronize film with sound – which eventually revolutionized cinema and lead directly to the computer you are using to view this little piece of history.

I give you the Fathers of the Internet in all their glory.

Enjoy.
