The yellow goat I ate!

Over at, there’s a thread on viral videos. Someone posted this classic

which the original YouTube poster described as "The Crazy Indian Video with SUBTITLES THAT SAY WHAT I THINK THE VIDEO SOUNDS LIKE IN ENGLISH!!!" and is probably the most hyperkinetic thing I have ever seen in my life. It’s also probably best not to watch it while drinking.

Over at there's an interesting thread asking for answers to the following: If you could go back in time and tell your 12-year old self one thing, what would it be? I was twelve in 1980. It seems so long ago ... maybe because it is. I guess I'd go with: You're not going to be able to…

Thank you for warning about not drinking. Hillarious!

Thanks for the video!! *****

I need to learn how to dance. I shall study this video.

Something new for those in the "Big Tent"? If so it will be strong competition for the usual hand waving we become accustomed to seeing from the Big Tent. I think some fancy footwork would go well to spice up the arguments. I also think the discussion could use some good show tunes. It gets a little dry rehashing the same old arguments over and over.
