I don't Squee very often, but I squee'd about this:

Acts I & II currently up. Act III will go up Saturday. All will come down Sunday at midnight. Available on iTunes for $2 per episode or $4 for the "season pass." Read the "master plan."

"...[I]f you're not prepared to be wrong, you will never come up with anything original. And, by the time they get to be adults, most kids have lost that capacity. They have become frightened of being wrong. And we run our companies this way; we stigmatize mistakes. [my notes: Not just mistakes, but results the ceo didn't like, no matter whether the decision was correct or not and we just got a bad break!!] And we're now running national education systems where mistakes are the worst thing you can make. And the result is that we are educating people out of their creative capacities."

Think today's kids live in the equivalent of a plastic bubble? Me too.

Five Dangerous Things You Should Let Your Kids Do
(Well, actually six)

There's one I would add: let kids get lost. I used to purposefully get lost, both in my neighborhood or nearby neighborhoods, and in the woods when we went camping. You can't find yourself if you don't first lose yourself. You don't get orienteering skills by watching it on TV.

For my reference, and possibly yours: the trailer for the mother of all global climate change videos.

I've watched the trailer above, "How It All Ends," and "How It All Ends, Index." I intend to watch all the linked videos. Because I find his humor entertaining, and want to hear what he has to say, and what he's asking his viewers to do.

with accompaniment by an *old* song by The Tubes. LOL. I am very fond of The Tubes.

Warning: there is some non-work-safe language.
