I can’t believe we made it…a video tribute to all those who made it through childhood when helmets weren’t mandatory, anti-bacterial sauce wasn’t applied multiple times a day, kids played outside, etc.
…I’m so glad I played outside as much as I did. I loved Intelivisiona and Atari…but that shit came second to my skateboard.
I hear a lot of people singing the praises of the almighty mApple iPhone being the industry innovator…inventing and implementing the best features and form-factors in our gadget crazy world.
Then I saw a short list in a comment section of an article that put a bunch of those ‘innovations’ to their actual innovators. Interesting shit:
iMessenger was stolen from BB (Blackberry), Notification bar from Palm, Touch screen phones from Palm, iPhone from Linksys, Thunderbolt technology from Intel, Magnetic charger for Laptops from Asian crockery, 30-pin power connector (charge iPhone/Pads/Pods) from Motorola, Apple TV from Microsoft Media Center, Apple logo from Genesis 3:6 Eve took a bite of an apple, Digital Camera from Kodak and Fuji, Current OS from Debian BSD, App store from Ubuntu, Tablet from DOS based Gridpad in 1989 and then SEVERAL tablets from Microsoft after that, MP3 player from Diamond RIO, Inductive charging from Palm and Nikola Tesla, First Laptop with handle from Data View from 1985, Infrared keyboard also from the Data View in 1985.

This video has blown up recently…racking up over a million views and being taken down from YouTube repeatedly for copyright shit. Check it out while it lasts:
This is an exerpt from a speech that David Foster Wallace gave to a graduating class. Super dope shit…then some folks in Los Angeles took it and created the video to sync up with it.
President Eisenhower warned the American people about the dangers of an ever-increasing military industrial complex.
Did we listen? Of course not. Are we paying for it? Of course we are…take a look at where our money is being spent.
Our prison system is better funded than our schools. More money goes to funding the business of incarcerating individuals than goes to educating young people. Check out this infographic showing just how gross the problem really is:
This is just Michigan. In each state, the problem is the same. We have private prisons that are funded by our tax dollars. The business of locking up non-violent criminals is and has been booming. Are you sure you’d rather have a non-violent drug offender locked up for $30,000 a year rather than divert those funds to our education system? Keyword: non-violent.
