On This Day
In 1916 : Easter Rising: The Irish Republican Brotherhood led by nationalists Patrick Pearse, James Connolly, and Joseph Plunkett starts a rebellion in Ireland.
Black and Tans
Come, let us hear you tell
How you slandered great Parnell,
When you thought him well and truly persecuted,
Where are the sneers and jeers
That you bravely let us hear,
When our heroes of sixteen were executed.
Oh, come out you Black and Tans;
Come out and fight me like a man;
Show your wife how you won medals down in Flanders;
Tell her how the I.R.A. made you run like hell away
From the green and lovely lanes in Killeshandra.
Come, tell us how you slew
Them ol' Arabs two by two;
Like the Zulus, they had spears and bows and arrows;
How you bravely faced each one,
With your sixteen pounder gun,
And you frightened them poor natives to their marrow.
does anyone know if CNN has gotten a green light on a second season of MH370 programming?
Its like watching Lost from the POV of the rest of the world.
You Ladies are all insane
Cue the outrage, "He even bows to robots"

I keep saying the problem isn't that your costs will go up, the problem is your provider will make certain sites so slow they're effectively blocking them. You won't have to pay more for amazon prime or netflix. ISPs won't offer a "fast lane" to them because it conflicts with their Cable / FIOS / Satellite television Video on Demand models.
If this were true a year ago, Aereo wouldn't be in front of the Supreme Court... The ISPs would've collectively shut Aereo Down by serving Aereo's traffic at 64KBs
On This Day
In 2005 - At 8:27 PM, Jawed Karim, one of the co-founders of YouTube, uploaded the video Me at the zoo making it the first video ever to be uploaded to YouTube.
It's amazing how talented Tatiana Maslany is. I've been watching Orphan Black and thought that the 2 of the clones had "great chemistry". Somewhere in the back of my head, I forgot they were played by the same actress.
I'd like to wish my favorite plagiarist a happy 450th Birthday #Shakespeare450 #EdwardDeVere
