New Technology Brings Back Old Memories

My new video iPod came in the mail this week. I was driven to this by United's lack of technology adoption. I mean really. Airline capacity is higher than ever... can't they install some personal video screens on long-haul 747s? Anyway, now I can watch my TV shows and movies on the ipod when I'm in the airport and on the plane. Pretty sweet.

As I was sorting through all my old media, I ran across an early southpark clip where Cartman sings "O Holy Night" with Kyle shocking him everytime he screws up. I crack up every time I see this clip. If you haven't seen, go watch it on youtube.

What is funny is that youtube also suggested this live-action version of the same clip.

Before you say to yourself, "Chad needs something better to do at midnight", let me just confirm that that is absolutely true.

Land of the Free

America is the best country in the world. Bringers of light and freedom to the darkness that is elsewhere. Isn't that what we are taught in grade school?

Did you know that in this great Land of the Free, Congress just passed a law making online gambling (including poker) illegal?

Yes, that's right. It is now legal to play poker online in Europe but not in the United States. So much for letting adults choose how they want to live. I'm so glad we are using our tanks to bring our special brand of freedom to the rest of the world.
