Long but very interesting interview by Babylon Bee (3 guys) of Elon Musk. Interview is embedded in the article; can also watch on YouTube.

https://babylonbee.com/news/wow-what-a- ... vilization
I'm liking that Elon started cutting his own hair, but what I'm really liking that it's so obvious.
And as for him who lacks the courage to defend even his own soul: Let him not brag of his progressive views, boast of his status as an academician or a recognized artist, a distinguished citizen or general. Let him say to himself plainly: I am cattle, I am a coward, I seek only warmth and to eat my fill.

Since I either have things like this on as either background or in conjunction with what I am doing at these keyboards ... I'm taking it in mostly by listening and little by watching. But, in this case, I did spend some minutes looking at him. And, it was not at all apparent to me he was cutting his own hair.

Hal, are you a vegemite connoisseur? ;D

National blessing depends not upon political parties or some charismatic leader—be they altruistic or self-serving—but upon God Almighty. Without Him, sooner or later, a nation's cracks and fissures will appear and divisions will widen, and the nation will greatly suffer on account of it.

I think I may have been able to successfully evade that song during the 80s!

Me First And The Gimme Gimmes - Rocket Man

Later made famous by Elton John.


A good version of the song. But it was the other way around. First was an Elton John song in 1972:

This version came out in 1997.

This clip of animals with high IQ's was amaziing.....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pA0WFLF ... 1&index=49

There are two scenes of artistic elephants that I find almost hard to believe. One starts around 1:52 and the other around 7:45.

Now you can join me in listening to the same two alternative versions of Rocket Man that I heard today!

Many, many, many thanks for putting this here!

I cannot believe that this talented duo has been around for 15 years and it is only in the last hour that I've discovered them (thanks to you!).

Their interview was excellent. I've listened (so far) to 7 of their songs and greatly enjoyed each of them. I am now an OFFICIAL fan of them!

Continuing on my journey of listening to as many MonaLisa Twins songs / performances that I can .... this is a particularly good one!

Twist and Shout - MonaLisa Twins ft. Mike Sweeney (Bert Russell/The Beatles Cover)

Thanks again to Hal for introducing me to this wonderful duo!

Zdogg with a tremendous (in every sense of the word) interview with Daniel Schmachtenberger (who I'd never heard of). This guy is amazing. I'm only halfway through it so far. The topic is "existential risk to civilization".

This IS quite good! Thanks for bringing it to our attention. I double the recommendation.

As soon as it ended I started it again for a second listen.

By the way .... does anyone here listen to Lex Fridman?

I discovered him last week and listened to several of his (long, long) podcasts. He is also quite good.

Which one? The host or the guest? I am assuming the former but wanted to check.

I'd never heard either before so I'm experiencing them as a duo.
