Elevating The Discourse One Video At A Time: The Friday Nooner (EST)!

Awesome Video Of The Day These Times We Live In Yesterday somebody accused me of posting "surprisingly high-brow" videos this week. I'm not particularly offended by that remark, but I think I need to explain myself. We live in tumultuous times. We've got a war going on in Iraq that is killing innocent people, global warming is threatening to eradicate us all and the gap between rich and poor grows wider every single day. Globalization is forcing manufacturing into increasingly-polluted third world countries, where cheap child labor is plentiful and unreglulated. The rainforests will be gone soon. Also, what ever happened with that hole in the ozone? Did that work itself out or what? That being said, don't attack me for posting videos that are "high-brow." In these days of uncertainty, I think it's important that we elevate the level of discourse. I know this is a humor website, but why should that mean that we can't open up a dialogue about what's happening in the world around us? It's a conversation we should have started a long time ago, but it's not too late, people. It's never too late. Remember that.
