I have dial-up and yesterday a 2:44 minute video took over 4 hours to load & play.
4:35 will still be chugging away when I get back from my promotion of my folk career at the open mike in Gardner, MA - if i start it now. Maybe kick it in for an overnight run. Hope I dont forget a comma in the JCL deck (old code warrior joke).

We see monsters where science shows us windmills. -- Phat
It has always struck me as odd that fundies devote so much time and effort into trying to find a naturalistic explanation for their mythical flood, while looking for magical explanations for things that actually happened. -- Dr. Adequate
...creationists have a great way to detect fraud and it doesn't take 8 or 40 years or even a scientific degree to spot the fraud--'if it disagrees with the bible then it is wrong'.... -- archaeologist
Yet another good one I won't ever be able to use. Like my favorite Redd Foxx line from an old "blue" party record he had made in the 50's or early 60's:
quote:I swear to God and three other white men, ...
Only other routine I remember from hearing that album back in 1970 (paraphrased from memory, of course):
quote:An old couple was sitting listening to the radio and a preacher came on announcing, "I can heal tonight! If you have some part that ails you, put one hand on the radio, your other hand on the part that ails you, and join us in singing 'Wade in the Water'!"
The old woman placed one hand on the radio, the other on her tired heart, and starting singing. The old man figured, "What the hell. I got nothing to lose.", placed one hand on the radio and slipped the other hand down to his lap and started singing along. The old woman saw this and said, "Abner! He said he could heal, not raise the dead!"
The Telegraph should know better than to repeat anything that the Daily Mail reports. The only thing that out-weighs the Daily Mail's ignorance is their racism. (They once claimed that black holes should 'go home'.)
