November 23rd, outsourced

Are they still talking about the Petraeus affair? Until Colbert laid it all out for me, I didn't realize how soap-opera-like it all was.

These hosts of an ESPN show purposely crammed their segment full of quotes from The Princess Bride. Very cute.

Videos you've probably seen, oh, EVERYWHERE ELSE by now: Other things that security cameras see, and Dumb Ways to Die.

McKayla Maroney and her Not Impressed face...with the President. [HT Jessie]

31 kids who are too clever for their own good.

I didn't know AC/DC was from Australia until a few months ago. That's (partially) because "regional dialects tend to get lost in song" - all singers basically sound American. [HT Scotty]

If you're not too full of caring about war these days, what with Gaza and Syria, think about That Other War.

Seeing these old photographs in color makes more of a difference than you'd think - this stuff really happened in color!

In the UAE, I don't need permission from Jeremy to leave the country. However, he gets a text message whenever I go through passport control. (Interestingly, when the kids go through passport control, I get the text message.) I'm not sure why that didn't come up in this article about the same thing happening in Saudi - are the women being prevented from leaving, or are the husbands just being informed?

In case you need to get that "Dumb Ways to Die" song out of your head, here is William Shatner singing about deep-fried turkeys. Mmmmmm. [HT Yvonne]

Thanks for the colorized photos link. I didn't realize that I have always thought of those images as if the people themselves lived in black and white. Fascinating.

This is one of your best "outsourced" ever. I stole a bunch and shared them. Thanks for the laugh.
