Saturday Night Open Thread

I had heard that the original name of The Beverly Hillbillies was going to be The Hillbillies of Beverly Hills. Now, I have proof of that. This is the original pilot episode of the show. This isn’t the first episode that aired. This was a pilot to sell the show. This was slightly edited and became the bulk of the first episode.

Even Staring at the Actual Ocean Is Only Interesting for 10 Minutes at a Time

[30 Days Timelapse at Sea | 4K | Through Thunderstorms, Torrential Rain & Busy Traffic] (Viewer #2,036,919)

The difference between this video and my experience with ocean-crossing is that I never got to see the stars because aircraft carriers are covered in very bright lights

Here, You Can Borrow My Dictionary

A new poll shows that 19% of college students think that it’s acceptable to use violence to disrupt a speaker who is saying “offensive and hurtful” things.

So… would they feel the same way if Trump got to define “offensive and hurtful”?

Best Line Since “We Begin Bombing in Five Minutes”

The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. The United States is ready, willing and able, but hopefully this will not be necessary. That’s what the United Nations is all about; that’s what the United Nations is for. Let’s see how they do.

If you haven’t read Trump’s speech to the UN, give it a shot. I kept waiting for something I objected to, but it never came.

I’d forgotten what it’s like to have a President who speaks favorably of the US and its interests.

Friday Night Open Thread

I’ve been watching Star Trek Continues. It’s well done. At least, I think so. And, it’s filmed just down the road from here, in Kingsland, Georgia.

Meanwhile, They’re Turning Away Asian Kids Because Their Test Scores Are Too High

Students in a sociology class at San Diego State University got extra credit for taking a quiz to determine their level of “white privilege.”

I’m guessing “not being pressured to feel guilt because of my skin color” wasn’t one of the privileges.

Not Magic, Just Common Sense

Contains a few swears

[Leaving the Left – Part 3: Penn Jillette] (Viewer #418,098)

It really comes down to what you would make people do at gunpoint.

For example: making a doctor treat my illness while losing money doing so – not on my list.

Another Reason for the Left to Hate Trump

During his UN speech, President Trump blasted socialism, saying that everywhere it’s been tried, “it has delivered anguish and devastation and failure”.

Yup. And those are its GOOD qualities.
