The Most Completely Insane Thing I’ve Ever Seen In a Cinema. — Medium
"The exec I was talking to sighed, leaned forward, and explained to me that according BBC Scotland that “Scottish people” are more working class and less educated than English people and, therefore, would feel intimidated and patronised if they watched a sitcom that mentioned philosophers, whereas English people can cope with more “cerebral” comedy without feeling as though they’re being made to feel stupid. So if I was going to pitch a script to BBC Scotland then I would have to make sure it was Glasgow, preferably male, centric and with no references to anything that could be construed as “intellectual” or cultured otherwise it would get immediately discarded." This makes a disturbing amount of sense.

I just said "Milwaukee" so now you all get the obligatory Wayne's World quote. No, /you're/ not worthy.

The Armando Iannucci Shows - Except for viewers in Scotland | Youtube
This (perfectly delivered) gag, the initial premise of which is that technology has already led to the obsolescence of regional television, was first broadcast before the Twin Towers fell. Take that, Better Together.

Animal instinct | katie mulgrew
Wow. I like to look at pretty ladies as much as the next man, but... wow. Note also the gratuitous attempted astroturfing in the comments, and @michaellegge's diligent and accurate rebuttals of same.

Linux vs. Windows | Twenty Sided
"I’ve installed both and I’ve used both, and I’m ready to offer Linux some constructive criticism. It’s a good attempt at an operating system, but they need to make some changes if they want to beat Windows." Eeeexcellent.

Where does all the best comedy come from? Death and war
"I attribute the darkness and strangeness of the comedy made by that generation to the war[...] a whole generation subscribed to their take on the war as something horrific, but also absurd". RIP Eric.
