“Serving up the best roadkill on the web!

You Can’t Do That On Television

Everything you ever wanted to know!

But were afraid to ask!”

A very cool, old style fan site, for You Can’t Do That On Television.

The pictures are really grainy…and this will remind you of a website from the 1990’s [which, personally, I love]…It hasn’t been updated in a long time…

…But, there’s a lot of pictures…there’s a great rundown, of every single episode…The trivia game still works [for me, anyway]…So, this is a worthwhile visit, for anyone who loved the show.


02) You Can’t Do That on Film

“What happens when you travel to the birthplace of green slime? For an entire generation of classic Nickelodeon fans, it’s like finding the Holy Grail. Join filmmaker David Dillehunt for You Can’t Do That on Film, the first and only feature-length documentary about the cult-classic children’s television show, You Can’t Do That on Television. This revolutionary program broke all the rules, let kids be kids, and taught viewers everywhere to avoid uttering the phrase, “I don’t know.” Packed with more slime, more laughs and more fun, You Can’t Do That on Film includes interviews with nearly two dozen original cast and crew members, including Les Lye, Christine McGlade, Alasdair Gillis, Adam Reid and Alanis Morissette.”

American Death Cult has MILLIONS worshipping FAKE SCIENCE!…

01) American Death Cult has MILLIONS worshipping FAKE SCIENCE!


“In this episode of “Modern Death Cults” we take a look at one of the largest and most dangerous sects of dogmatic zealots in history: the United States of America!”

This is what happens when the common media tactics used to disparage people and cultures, is applied to cultures normally shielded from such.

Very interesting watch…Not sure it’s entirely accurate…but, still…

This clearly wasn’t meant to be taken seriously…and I love this type of poignant exercise.

The Free IQ Test…

Date: November 19, 2018

01) Free-IQTest.net

“The average IQ is 100. Have you wondered what your IQ score is? Our original IQ Test will give you a fast, free and accurate iq score. Take our quick free IQ test and find out just how smart you are.”

I’m pleased to announce, that my IQ remains comfortably above average…at 122…

This is consistent with how I’ve been doing on these tests, over the years…One year may be a few points higher, or a few points lower…but, 122 is right in the neighborhood, for me.

…I’m never joining MENSA…and at this point in my life, I’ll never reach the point of being an IQ genius…

…But I’m still more crafty, creative, explorative, perceptive and insightful, than the average mind.

…If only I could get myself up eight more points…I’d be Gifted!

…So close…Yet, so far away…

BuzzFeed:

“Congratulations! You’re cranberry sauce. You bring a much-needed dose of sweetness and flavor to the party. You’re also far-and-away the easiest side dish to prepare, so thanks for making our lives better.”

Brainfall:

“Your personality is light and pleasant on the surface, but there’s still a certain depth to your character.”

I do love both cranberry sauce and stuffing…I’m satisfied, being these two different side dishes.
