Wednesday is Share Day
Remember show and tell at school? This is my grown up version based on things friends have shared on Facebook.
First off several have pointed out this clip from the Daily Show, showing what happens when you follow the money that is funding the Cordoba Center, and find that it leads right back to Prince Alwaleed, who is, you know, also the biggest share holder in News Corp, Fox’s parent company. Do watch and enjoy this:
Next comes this little tid-bit of geekitude, which also amuses me, care of my blog/facebook friend, PJ: If Historical Events had Facebook Pages. Very geekish and funny stuff to be found there. Heee! Go ahead! Click it! You know you want to!
Oh, and I almost forgot this little tidbit pointed out my friend Ann. Abe Books has an interesting collection of books that has received attention in the New York Times, the Guardian, and the Times of London, to name a few, for it’s, erm, interesting collection. Go and take a look at the titles of some books that have actually been published in Abe Books Weird Book Room. Peruse titles like The Lumberjack Songs with Yodel Arrangements and All About Scabs. Good times!
This is my favorite image of the week, pointed out on FB by Tracie The Red. I just like this, cuz I like these two gentlemen and most, if not all, of what they espouse!

And last, but not least, here is a video all women should watch. We need to keep in mind the photoshopping that is done, to make this attractive woman become “perfect” – at least in the eyes of the photoshopper. Ugh. And we wonder why women are so messed up in the head about what beauty is – all we are ever shown is a “product” not a person. It messes with your head, even when you understand the truth of the situation. Hat tip to my friend Denise for this one!
