This made me laugh until I could hardly breathe. You have been warned!

Probably bad timing for this thread now :P but I was listening to some CSNY earlier, which I enjoy.

It's never a bad time for Crosby, Stills, Nash and the Canadian.

Edit: Also, Deju Vu, the first album pairing C,S & N with the Canadian, was released 49 years ago today!

I wondered whether to put this in the Geeks thread or here. Either way, it's brilliant:

So enjoyable to watch :D

Typed on a tiny phone keyboard on Tapatalk - typos inevitable.

If you've ever heard of her, you know what to expect. If you haven't... I have no idea how to prepare you.

This is just sad. "We Asked People If They Care About Homo Sapien Extinction"

Ignorance is not bliss, at least not in that instance. It's just pathetic.

To be fair, they probably excluded all the many people who know what homo sapiens are.

It would be interesting to know how long it took them to get that sampling.

This is a... fascinating look into the 1950s. I kept wondering if the acting and/or dialogue was a bit stilted, or whether this was the normal way of talking back then.

That film was put out by Encyclopedia Britannica. There were a bunch of those 'public service announcement' type short films that I believe were made to be shown in schools. I am pretty sure they were scripted and done by 'real' people so they do seem a bit stilted and 'ideal'. I recall seeing one on hygiene that had to be ancient

Check this one out (not done by Encyclopedia Britannica) Body Care & Grooming (1948).

Fascinating. I was surprised with some of those results.

I was surprised that The Rolling Stones weren't up there (I don't like them, but I always thought they were a "big thing").
