Everything Else / Re: Parody

It sounds dreadful. Like a Go-Go's song.

Wow, you thought up something worse than Sherry Lewis with her puppets Lamb Chop, Charlie Horse, and Hush Puppy (song's source). I didn't think that was possible. I came up with it when I saw part of a CNN report talking about racist Trump (one can't go anywhere without telescreens droning on everywhere). I thought, "This narrative just goes on and on..."

It would make a great parody video, I just don't have the means.

Everything Else / Parody

I thought a parody (preferably original ones) thread would be fun.

Here is a little parody I wrote to the tune of "The Song that Doesn't End" (for those not familiar with this very annoying song it may not make sense. Here is a youtube short version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_47KVJV8DU Some psycho put up a 10 hour version...)

Trump's a racist sexist misogynist,
Trump's a racist sexist misogynist,
Some people started saying it when he ran for office,
And now they'll keep on trying to control the public mind.
Trump's a racist sexist misogynist....

Everything Else / Re: Chernobyl on HBO

I have not seen it, but have read that it is pretty good. There were complaints about inaccuracies, such as a claim that radiation sickness is contagious. But that could be that the person depicted was wrong.

Excellent.

Has anyone else watched this yet?

It far surpassed my expectations, and after the failed GOT finale, this one did not disappoint.

Karl Jaspers “The power of leadership appears to be declining everywhere. More and more of the men we see coming to the top seem to be merely drifting.”

Ted Engstrom (former head of Youth for Christ, author of Making of a Christian Leader)  “ We see the tragedy of weak men in important places; little men in big jobs.”

British Essayist Walter Savage Landor “When little men cast long shadows it is a sign that the sun is setting.”

Isaiah 3:12 “As for My people, children are their oppressors, And women rule over them. O My people! Those who lead you cause you to err, And destroy the way of your paths.”

 Here's one that makes forced vaccination sound all the more ominous.

"The principle that sustains compulsory vaccination is broad enough to cover cutting the Fallopian tubes. Three generations of imbeciles are enough." Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. on Buck v Bell (1927) which was deciding on forced sterilizations.

Firefly and a single movie was not enough for such a fantastic show.

the Movie quote was from The Bucket List (spoken by Jack Nicholson).


"Truth does not become more true by virtue of the fact that the entire world agrees with it, nor less so even if the whole world disagrees with it." Moses Maimonides, Guide for the Perplexed (quoted in You're teaching My Child What? by Miriam Grossman, MD)
