John Oliver on Apple’s encryption battle with the FBI

John does it again. I’ve been waffling on this issue, but am leaning toward phone encryption. John Oliver’s report on the subject isn’t only hilarious, it’s balanced and informative. And there’s a great mock iPhone ad at the end that sums everything up quite well too.

And I still don’t like that terrorism is used as the justification for unlocking encryption. I think that religious white males with access to firearms would be a better tactic.


Question the Bible?! Why not…

James Randi: informative and entertaining. In this video he discusses the archeological evidence, or lack thereof, for Nazareth. Does the fictional status of Nazareth equate to the fictional status of Jesus (and therefore God and salvation)? Yes. I believe it’s just another nail in the coffin.

I especially enjoy the jet coming in from the top left.


Turn it again

Turn it again by the Red Hot Chili Peppers from Stadium Arcadium. All around a great album, and this song is nearly perfect.

The Walking Dead: A Bad Lip Reading

If you’re a fan of The Walking Dead, I’m sure you’ll find this Bad Lip Reading beyond mildly entertaining.


Bad British NFL Commentary

This is the kind of commentary I can get behind. I could easily make my wife a football widow if this were the real deal.
