We’ve all heard various sayings that decry revenge as being a worthless act that’s beneath any civilized human being. “An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind” said Gandhi. “Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves” said Confucius. “Two wrongs don’t make a right” said your parents probably at some point during your childhood.

4:12 I can understand the concern about light pollution and it shouldn't be underestimated. First off, all light going upwards is just wasted energy and it's like volunteering to pay more taxes. It also causes a lot of damage to wildlife because it disrupts their biological clock. Finally, some of that "wildlife" includes humans. There are strong indications that too much light at night causes higher blood pressure, elevated stress levels (which also raises blood pressure) and increases the chance of getting cancer. So yeah, if I'd paid a sizable amount of money for a house in a dark and quiet rural area I'd be pissed too if someone tried to turn it into an industrial zone.
If that damned “church” shows up at my dads funeral they will be sorry and most likely walking home as their bus will not be taking them. My friends and I rolled a bus in high school and could do it again
I wonder if you ever do a video without making massive MFE's? It's "Siskel & Ebert," not "Ebert & Siskel." It's Roger Ebert, not Robert Ebert as you called him at 2:29. You are truly a tuber who lives on voice alone, but nothing higher than your voice box.
6:23 OH FREAKING YEAH!!! I agree with that wholesale that is payback on horrible people done right . I can imagine the people who support mister Jackson are applauding the painting of his HQ very highly.
Hi Top Tenz. Reading the lord Byron fact the rule at trinity collage was no domesticated pets. Hence he got the bare stating that its not domesticated it is quite wild. Wold love to here is anyone can back up or debunk this?
I would like it known to the viewer that Satan nor his legions had any part in the founding of The Bank of America. Nor do they endorse, support or affiliate with The Bank of America nor any banking corporation. Ad Majorem Sathanas Gloriam
So, I caught my wife cheating on me. Proceeded to divorce her. Ended up giving her the house, my car, all my guitars and amps, the dog, my fish and 1/2 my income for the rest of my life.... *BEST REVENGE EVER!!* ...LOL... :)
How is it possible for you to literally sound posher than Prince William? Dial it back a couple of points dude, it sounds ridiculous. The poshest person in the country doesn't sound that posh so what are you trying to prove?
Wow...you managed to call Roland Emmerich "Roald," "Ronald," and "Robert" all in a single second! And apparently, Roger Ebert borrowed that "Robert" moments later.
Also, George Lucas didn't make E.T. Did you not research this one?
Michael Crichton was a much needed voice in the global warming debate. In a world where the only two voice are "we're all going to die!" and "nothing is happening" you had a guy who was looking at the data, objectively searching for the cause, and saying we shouldn't politicize scientific issues. To that, I say kudos.
In Swedish and German we have two words.
Revenge as acts of murder and mayhem are described as "hämnd"/"Rache", while Swedish and at least Austrian German has "revanch"/Revansche" as equivalent to what you are probably describing.
I offered a friend (an adult childhood friend, if that makes sense, met later when I was myself also adult) something, and in order to motivate offering me sth in return, she said "ich muß mich revanschieren" ... She would obviously not have said "ich muß mich rächen".
You forgot about the time that Lord Byron's original version of Don Juan included a dedication that was a complete hit piece on another poet, Robert Southerly, who had accused him of incest. It included the line "I wish your fate may yield ye, when she chooses,/The fame you envy and the skill you need."
I wondered about that because the score is so well known that someone in the Saudi entourage would be bound to notice it. But still, I can imagine the Queen asking her staff why all the younger people were sniggering.
