If you're like me, you'll see this clip load and say, "Nine minutes? Okay, I'm not watching this for nine whole minutes, but I'll watch it for a little while to get the gist." Then, if you're still being like me, you won't be able to stop yourself from watching the WHOLE THING, on account of HOLY SHIT. (This is this, sorry if you've seen it elsewhere but I couldn't pass up posting it.)
It's always hard to divine what the Founders intended in the Constitution (and you can argue over how worthwhile that pursuit is anyway), but a columnist at Forbes just wrote about an early incidence of socialized medicine and U.S.-government-mandated health insurance—in 1798!

Brendan is up to some cool stuff, with Reggie Watts no less:
Infused with sonic landscapes performed live by Reggie Watts, Dutch A/V is a live-edited environmental film that seeks to replicate the first hand experience of being a flâneur in another city. Reggie - with collaborator/playwright Tommy Smith and Seattle journalist Brendan Kiley - traveled to Holland and shot over 26 hours of footage, exploring its cities using spy-glasses that recorded everything they saw and heard. Dutch A/V seeks to re-present this footage using projection technology and stereophonic sound, turning the interior space into portals to a foreign landscape thousands of miles away.
