Thanx for posting. The host of that video always does a fantastically informative job of scholarly exposition in his series of Utube vids on religion called "Religion for Breakfast". Those crazy ...yet oddly innovative...weirdos called the "Shakers" evolved a "culturally let...

If your IQ is in the top 2% of the general population then I encourage you to join Mensa . However, remember that intelligence has much less practical application than you'd think. Being qualified for Mensa means that, unlike all of your friends, you are able to...read your comic books without movi...

Sometimes the same thing can elicit laughs, or tears, depending upon your mood. https://youtu.be/7xBxZGQ1dJk https://youtu.be/7xBxZGQ1dJk The above Seventies singer-songwriter really was both dying, and a Cubs fans, when he wrote the song. Knowing that can jerk a tear or two from you when you hear t...

Eh, in another 60-70k years it will all be ice again.


Again?

The Ice never reached that far south even during the glacial maximum. Climate is changing far faster than nature would do it.

Hmmm... If you're ten years old, but are only as smart as a seven year old then you have an IQ of 70. If you're ten and can do what a ten year old can do you have an IQ a 100 (average), a 20 year old two hundred (genius).

More than one dj did mash-ups of the late Amy Winehouse with this Sixties hit by Motown's Four Tops. The styles dovetail. Resulting in a fun novelty record. Until the Rehab singer finnally succumbed to her inner demons. Now the male voices of the Tops ...representing a man addressing his defiant lov...

I didn't know it was popular but that makes sense. I got married just after it was released. I don't think it had gained much traction yet. He was always my hero. Little did I know he'd later become a national hero. There's a national monument for his heroism. That's a lovely song for you and your ...

Good choices.

The Bette Midler song is popular for father-daughter at weddings.

If I had gotten married while mom was still alive I might have picked this song by Boyz-II-Men for the mother-son dance.
