Have you ever thought “I’m a buffoon – somebody please give me a free college-level lecture on Western Civilization”?
Well, since I did, I’m sure you have too. Check out Lerner.org’s compilation of Eugen Weber’s The Western Tradition. If you watch them straight through, its just 24 hours of video (reg/login free, but required).
Also very worth watching are Jacob Bronowski‘s The Ascent of Man. I was able to find a bunch (not all) of the videos on guba. This is less straight history, with more humanism and philosophy.
Here’s a little sneak clip – the very end of the very excellent series:
I know this is a deeper than usual foray into nerd-dom, but both these series are awesome and worth your time.
So, I was looking at public U.S. Federal actions because I am bored, and want to see how much a used cop Interceptor costs if you buy it straight from the government. Instead I found this lovely charm:
JAIL CELL: $20
JAIL CELL (1 EACH),SIZE:6 FFET X 8 FEET, (CONDITION USED,REPAIRS MAY BE NEEDED) USED (1481058004GLCA6) bodytype(“160″); usmswarn(“N”); showExpWarn(“81QSCI08032″,”073″);
THE CONDITION OF THE PROPERTY IS NOT WARRANTED.
So I figure once I buy this for $20, I’ll be able to make some really messed up B-Horror film without much trouble? I got a chainsaw down by the farm and some axes. I’ll be good to go!
Other applications? I imagine it could go towards a lovely S&M dungeon, or teachers may want to bring it to school for those troublesome students.
