Vista Speech Recognition Demonstration

Not new, but new to me.

I watched the whole thing, but you'll get the idea after the first couple of minutes.

The Rabbi and the Taxman

Emailed to me by my friend Michael D.

At the end of the tax year the IRS sent an inspector to audit the books of a synagogue.

While he was checking the books, he turned to the Rabbi and said, "I notice you buy a lot of candles. What do you do with the candle drippings?"

"Good question," answered the Rabbi. "We save them up and send them back to the candle makers, and every now and then they send us a free box of candles."

"I see," replied the auditor, somewhat disappointed that his unusual question had a practical answer. But on he went, in his obnoxious way:

"What about all these matzo (bread) purchases? What do you do with the crumbs?"

"Ah, yes," replied the Rabbi, realizing that the inspector was trying to trap him with an unanswerable question. "We collect them and send back to the manufacturers, and every now and then they send a free box of matzo balls."

"I see," replied the auditor, thinking hard about how he could fluster the know-it-all Rabbi.

"Well, Rabbi," he went on, "What do you do with all the leftover foreskins from the circumcisions you perform?"

"Here, too, we do not waste," answered the Rabbi. "What we do is save up all the foreskins and send them to the Internal Revenue Service, and about once a year they send us a complete dick."

Jon Stewart on Romney (right on)

I swear- this show has gotten better since the writer's strike. My mom will probably think that Jon's script is vulgar, but thgat doesn't make it less funny or less correct.

I'll post this from multiple sources to make sure it sticks here for a while.

My Brain Works Funny

I saw this ad on television (ignore the ad- just listen to the music):

The music reminded me so much of the following video that I went and found it so I could confirm it wasn't the same music:

...and it isn't. Why was I so convinced it was?

Peter Callesen (Art - Paper)

Peter Callesen makes stuff I like a lot. You should go to his site and check it out. If you're the sort who can buy art, you should buy some of a gift for me.
