The Long Walk Of Nelson Mandela | FRONTLINE | PBS -
FYI. This is starting now on PBS.
I forgot Red (Kurtwood Smith) was in Robocop.
It’s 80’s nostalgia night around here.
For more 80’s goodness, Robocop is starting now on BBC America.
(I have to correct my other post. Highlander was on BBC America too)
Compare Kurgan to Sheriff Corbin
Ma mère au volant.
@keepingtrackofnothing borrowing my car today.
They’re showing Highlander on
SyFy channel BBC America (it started at 4:30 pm). I haven’t seen this in ages and I forgot it came out in 1986. That’s the year I graduated from high school.

A brief history of cocaine - Salon.com -
This is a fascinating read.
Vin Mariani was a concoction of cocaine in claret, which was certainly a very reasonable idea. Not surprisingly the combination of a good Bordeaux with cocaine sold extremely well. Not only did the drink have the attractive effects of both of its ingredients going for it but Mariani was also an excellent publicist, obtaining affidavits from all kinds of famous people. These included, believe it or not, both the pope and the chief rabbi of France. Eventually Mariani marketed a large number of cocaine products in addition to his wine, including tea, lozenges, and cigarettes.
The only thing I take issue with in this post is donating to the HSUS. Donate to your local animal shelter instead (you can give them money or see if there are other things they need like food, laundry supplies, etc.) where the vast majority of your money is going to go to care of the animals and not overhead.
