I really, really didn't need another reason to desperately want to punch Ben Stein in the nads, and yet:

The people who have been laid off and cannot find work are generally people with poor work habits and poor personalities. I say "generally" because there are exceptions. But in general, as I survey the ranks of those who are unemployed, I see people who have overbearing and unpleasant personalities and/or who do not know how to do a day's work. They are people who create either little utility or negative utility on the job. Again, there are powerful exceptions and I know some, but when employers are looking to lay off, they lay off the least productive or the most negative. To assure that a worker is not one of them, he should learn how to work and how to get along -- not always easy.

I have to think that the inside of his skull is simply filled with a writhing mass of centipedes and cockroaches and that only the sheer power of the dark side of the Force keeps them from spilling out of him every time he opens his mouth.

But on a more positive note:

Also this sleeping bag is the greatest thing I have ever seen. I both thank and curse my buddy J- for showing me this.

Because apparently some people have never seen Hardware Wars:

My sis just sent me the link to this YouTube vid of Dancing with the Star Wars Stars and it must be shared:

My sis just sent me this and it is both disturbing and entertaining:

I totally blame [livejournal.com profile] windrose for this, but fortunately we're both pagans so we don't believe in hell and are therefore unlikely to go there for sharing it. If I sent people Easter cards this is the image that would be on them:

"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine..."

Dammit, this piece by Keith Martin almost makes me want to re-watch the Star Wars prequels, it's so goddamn brilliant:

Then, on the verge of escape, Vader himself turns up only yards from both of his children, one of whom is leaking Force all over the place. Obi-Wan stages a distraction by letting himself die and go into the Force while the others escape. At this point, Chewie suddenly realises that he's been left in charge, not only of the Death Star Plans and the survival of the Rebellion but of the secret son and daughter of Darth Vader. With the Organas and Kenobi all dead, only Chewie, R2 and Yoda know who Luke and Leia are. And only Ob-Wan knew where Yoda has been hiding. Chewie is stressed out by the responsibility and R2 (who keeps making crude jokes about the whole affair) is being no help at all.

A re-interpretation of episodes 4-6 given what we learned in 1-3, it really does put an interesting spin on the flicks. And I love the concept of R2 and Chewie as the masterminds behind most of the events in A New Hope.

Also a podcast I need to check out is "How to Succeed in Evil":

How to Succeed in Evil is not a self-help page for the maladjusted. It it is the story of Edwin Windsor, Evil Efficiency Consultant. He’s like Arthur Anderson for Supervillians.

Just because a person can melt walls by winking at them or build a device to threaten the very fabric of our reality doesn’t mean that they know how to manage investments or squeeze money out of a scheme. Just look at M.C. Hammer. (Not that’s he’s evil or super — just that he’s exquistely bad with money.)

But the problem with supervillians is that they are all too egomaniacal to listen to good advice. (They always pay, but they never listen.) So Edwin gets so fed up with this state of affairs and decides to go into business for himself. This results in an efficient, ruthless (and often very funny) brand of evil.

The Star Wars series as a silent film:

Hat tip to [livejournal.com profile] scar_let for pointing me to it!

I just caught this on Robot Chicken and I had to share. Emperor Palpatine receives the news about the destruction of the first Death Star.
