It was the early 1970's. Music still came on vinyl. I found in the bargain bin David Bowie's Station to Station for $2. I still treasure this as one of my best finds.
Here is a cover of the Johnny Mathis single.

Consumers have bought more than 11 million internet-connected Vizio televisions since 2010. But according to a complaint filed by the FTC and the New Jersey Attorney General, consumers didn't know that while they were watching their TVs, Vizio was watching them. The lawsuit challenges the company's tracking practices and offers insights into how established consumer protection principles apply to smart technology.
America. It's one of the biggest countries on Earth, both in terms of population and sheer size. It's the planet dominating superpower; the heaviest hitter where culture is concerned; a place known by nearly every single human on the planet... and, to all but the 4-5% of humanity who live there, it makes absolutely no gosh darn sense.

Here is the pilot episode of Sealab 2021, the parody of Sealab 2020. 2020 was a Hanna-Barbera 30 minute show and was a semi-educational Saturday morning animated show broadcast back in 1972. From 2001 to 2005, Cartoon Network's Adult Swim took footage from the 2020 series and turned it into some really strange comedy.
Without further adieu (there was no prior adieu), here is the pilot episode from the Adult Swim series.

Forget cash. On Tuesday, McDonald's hamburger fans were able to withdraw a Big Mac from an ATM. Big Mac lovers who visited a McDonald's eatery in Boston's Kenmore Square were able to bypass the counter and instead head straight to an automated teller machine that dispensed two new versions of the signature sandwich, along with the original. All were free.

These are two short videos of a cat that managed to get away from its owner, enter a pet store, then go hog-wild in the catnip toys until its owner tracked it down and retrieved it. Honestly, I would have done the same thing if I were a cat.

Hey, remember how Luke and the rebels went zipping thru the trench that goes around the middle of the Death Star to get to the exhaust port that leads to the reactor that makes the whole thing go FOOM? Yeah, that's not where you thought it was. It's nowhere near the equator, and they even showed you that in the pre-attack meeting.
