FIXED url - Possibly The Ultimate MetaData on The Online World


Just a deep recommend for moderately tech savvy, net educated people who enjoy a brilliant combo of "magic tricks" and hard science all about Us and the world we are creating... and a side issue of Google as God.

EDIT I couldn't find how to add "Fixed" to the thread <dammit!> so here (and also below) is the correct link

"Oh what sad times are these when passing ruffians can say Ni at will to old ladies!"

Best scenes of Monty python?
Best scenes of the Holy Grail, more like. Might as well watch the whole movie.

Anyway, I have said it before:
Quote:
Time and again I am amazed how many online situations are perfectly explained by a Monty Python scene!
There can be only two reasons:

1. The world wide web is modeled after Monty Python's work, or at least heavily influenced by it
2. Monty Python had that sort of visionary power; like George Orwell and William Gibson, they just saw what's going to come; incl. but not limited to spam, trolling etc.
My favourites:
Architect's Sketch (audio only) - often emulated in various online communities, but also in real life politics etc.
And of course the Cheese Shop - a beautifully composed burlesque on the impossibility of communication in the modern world with a rustic touch of the mediterranean.

That's the real metadata of the internet.

OH CRAP! I've done it again! I love that I can save two separate bits of text, one with "Copy" or "Ctrl-C", and another with mouse swipe, but it does sometimes get me in trouble. The funniest part is that clip kinda fits!

I enjoyed the clips!! Especially since it reminded me what happened when a friend and I went to a "College Movie Theater" when they were showing "Monty Python and the Holy Grail", shortly after it was released. We had seen plenty of Monty Python productions, again and again. We tried to be on time, but came in late, so our arrival was a bit disruptive, and the available seats were in the rear of the theater. At one point, one of the characters essentially said something like "What do we do next?". My friend and I laughed very loudly causing plenty of people in front of us to turn around and look at us as if they thought we were crazy. But from all our experience with Monty Python's, we had guessed what was going to happen next***. Then once the people who seemed to think my friend and I were crazy, saw what was next, most of them laughed very loudly too.

*** Legal disclaimer. No Truth Algorithm was used in the making of that guess.

I've seen Most of Monty Python. The UK gave us a fine string of comics.

What was funniest imho was the reaction to the Life Of Brian. We had bishops debating with comedians about possible insult (or 'blasphemy' as they refer to it) to Jesus Christ. My Understanding was they looked at the Life of Jesus, found it wasn't funny, because all of the human weaknesses comedians make fun of weren't there in Jesus, and they went elsewhere. Wasn't it the 3 wise men went to the wrong cow shed?

BTW, anyone who liked Monty Python might also go for the "Johnny English" movies.
