Starting Early Now

"Human suffering is as much a permanent phenomenon on our planet as the tides and the polar ice caps, and from this little satellite of our dwindling sun endless wails of woe and terror always have, and always will, come from the ululant throats of suffering humanity, whose lamentations and screams forever rise upward into the unheeding atmosphere and die away in the cold infinity beneath the pitiless stars."

Remember, remember the 5th of November... SBPDL wrote a piece entitled, "Waiting Until Middle School to Start Freak Dancing", and we thought we had seen it all. A reader told us the video that accompanies that clip came from the Dominican Republic.

The clip below is difficult to understand (it comes from somewhere in America), so we'll leave it for your written dissection.

We upload another video for your enjoyment, the beautiful Clair De Lune.

Read the quotation while listening to the second video we have uploaded, after watching the interesting first clip. Remember where you are when you watch these two clips and realize the Mad World that we find ourselves living in and that "Sophocles heard it long ago on the Aegean, and it brought into his mind the turbid ebb and flow of human misery..."

In the first video - the thing on the table and the one holding the camera have the same IQ

"the thing on the table"? That's disgusting. This is a baby, who's actually a pretty good dancer and able to pick up moves. Don't blame the baby for the choreography. Shame on you.

The "thing" on the table?

Wow :) Nice to know a child is identified as a thing. The first step to dehumanizing a person...a baby no less. Just wow.

Last time I'm coming to this site. That was just vile. The poster of this blog has no bones about coming out and making his opinions known. The lack of response lets me know that he doesn't even consider a child a person. Your silence is acquiesence.

I thought this website was funny and mostly harmless, but that was disgusting to me. I don't care what color you are a child is not a thing. Thinking like that is what lead to the Europeans Childrens War and children being gassed during WW2 and children of slaves used as alligator bait and children in Africa used as soldiers and children in England used as cheap expendable labor. A total disregard for the innocence of childhood. You want to talk crap,talk crap on the parents, lowlife. Talking about babies. Kick rocks and get a soul.

What strikes me is two things about the 'Stanky leg' video...

A: Behavior is not 'learned' but rather DNA rules all (OK, 80% at least..) and as my buddy Ed likes to say 'People are like horses. Breeding *shows*'.

B: What IDIOT would put a (I assume) two year-old on a kitchen table to gyrate around like a horribly unbalanced top? Ever wear socks on a waxed surface? (Like a kitchen floor, or in this case a kitchen table?) Ever notice how the traction is about as good as snot on a doorknob?
I wonder how 'funny' the video would have been, had the 'parents' (And I use the term VERY loosely) captured their kid's last seconds of life while it slipped off the table and snapped it's neck while it's head hit the floor?
Big yucks.

"actually a good dancer"

"first step to dehumanising a person"

I agree AND disagree with the comments on this post. Both of the posted videos could bring a man to tears. Are there any more men?

Both videos make me cry, but for different reasons.

There is the 'black American culture' we hear so much about. It is a sickening display. A child ( and I use the word loosely) dancing the 'stanky leg' on a table and being taped doing so by , I am sure, proud relatives.
The song is bereft of any class....just like the beings in the tape.
