Thanks for the heads-up, doublebrightness! It works now.

Re: “Things I learn at band practice (NSFW)

Pointless? I’m sure it is to some. If you’re not interested in still photography choreographed to eerie, narrated fiction, then definitely don’t watch the Rat King video that links to a wonderful collection of scary stories by theLittleFears.

If you’re not interested in the mystery of a natural phenomenon explained, don’t click on the ant video.

If you don’t care about the devastating consequences of drug addiction in a country with little pharmaceutical regulation and few state-sponsored rehabilitation programs, then don’t watch the powerful piece on Russia’s Krokodil epidemic.

If you don’t think people should be aware of a frightening drug called scopolamine which has been used to commit crimes in South America, the US, and Canada, then don’t share VICE’s informative documentary on the subject.

And if being interested in art, science, and the global community we live in gets me seated at the kids’ table, I’ll happily and willingly stay here. If my attempt to entertain the other kids at the table while sharing this information is not to your taste, well then, perhaps the grown-ups’ table should stop eavesdropping. The Reader has many excellent writers covering a wide variety of adult subjects that aren’t about the Discovery Channel. I’m confident you can find a different column by a different writer on this site that you will enjoy.
