The forum is full of interesting people saying boring things. You are sharp, curious young men, if something interests you it probably interests me too. Please share your favourite sites, blogs, games, subreddits, porn, whatever you consider worth your time.

For example Imgur http://imgur.com/gallery/Sp0Ds a massive caption competition, images are interesting, beautiful or funny.

You know it's true.

My housemate is obsessed with dinosaur comic, every time she sounds like shes quoting something and everyone else is looking at each other blankly, it takes us a second to realise its dinosaur comic again.

Is WFMU a radio station?

WFMU is a listener-supported, freeform radio station situated in Jersey City, New Jersey. (Or Jandekistan during the hurricane, when they were surrounded on all sides on water.) It is paid for during a yearly marathon fortnight, for which you are handsomely rewarded with CDs and t-shirts. Each DJ can do what they like with their slot, so each show is almost completely different from one another, for example Sinner's Crossroads is all gospel, The Best Show is a 3 hour long call-in comedy show (a huge cult hit), and the Antique Phonograph Music Programme has only acoustic recordings (pre-1930) played on original machines.

Meanwhile, in Tudor England: tell your housemate that I love her and that also she should read Three Word Phrase and Feel Afraid.

I guessed she was Australian, and I still think she's rad. Get her a cuddly T-rex.

Second warlighter to call me a hipster in 3 days. And I didn't even give a link to Pitchfork this time. Why did you make me this hip, God?

Listen to the Best Show Gems podcast. The Best Show turned 12 years and a thousand hours old last autumn, if you want to listen you have to commit. The Gems, however, are only 10-50 minutes long, and it would probably be best to listen to them first anyway, to ramp up.

Pretty strange song.
They're singing this in order to honour the Polish soldiers who would perish unless they outnumbered the Germans 40 to 1 ?? That seems to sort of give a low opinion of the Polish to be honest.
Furthermore this fact sort of makes the metaphor of the Spartans fall away. The spartans were outnumbered, while the polish actually had more manpower.
The only thing "praise-worthy" for the polish soldiers was their sense of honour. They would rather all charge themselves to death instead of surrendering and running away. Especially seeing the charge of the polish cavalry divisions against the german tanks always sort of gives me goosebumps. Not just for the sillyness of it, but also since it signified a quick change in the way warfare was going to be conducted from then on. And in such a foolish charge there is an aspect of glory, stupid faith.

With regards to small nations hurting the german war effort one could better look at Malta and the Netherlands for example.
Malta who sort of took out the remaining german para-trooper divisions + stalled them for a long while in their mediterranean expedition.

Netherlands, who eventually capitalated to save the cities from bombardment. As a matter of fact their army was not even defeated. They had had to regroup and form a new defensive line but that one was actually totally intact. Their only fault was that their 30 airplanes had all been destroyed during the previous war efforts. The 30 fokker airplanes, of which most were older versions, had taken down 100 airplanes of the Luftwaffe at the cost of their own lives. This left them with no secure means to defend against the bombers of the Germans.
So the dutch government surrendered in order to prevent bombings on their cities. Communication not being what it is now this led to problems. While Netherlands had already surrendered the hundred german bombers were already on their way to Rotterdam. Without being able to receive the retreat order they went on to bombard the centre of Rotterdam, killing thousands.

I was also called a troll not 12 hours ago! And no, thank you. I can never take recommendations, I get hyper-critical. I can only appreciate things when I discover them myself.


Uhh Yeah Dude is another podcast of excellence: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UoR1dUm9dE this clip is my favourite. It's a regular segment where they take from the news 3 stories of child neglect/abuse and ask: "Who is momming harder?"

In this recurring segment they read and reflect upon ludicrous Craigslist posts: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pk2GIhVUmRk

which is pretty interesting/funny depending on how morbid you are. The one of inventors killed by their own inventions is also good.
