I watched the entire video.
It doesn't need fixing - it was perfect.
When Jeremy Niven talked about bees and Van Gogh's painting, 'Sunflowers'. I was reminded of a time when I was eight years old.
My brothers and I were sitting on a dock at Lake Simcoe. I was dangling my feet in the water. I was wearing a royal blue one piece bathing suit with a sunflower on the chest. It was nowhere near Van Gogh quality, in fact, I think a five year old could have done a better job.
We were just talking and laughing. When suddenly, both brothers became wide eyed and my older brother calmly said: "Don't move Michael, there's a bee on your chest." I looked down and there it was standing in the middle of my sunflower starring right at me. At least, I perseaved it to be looking right at me.
I flipped out screaming and jumped into the lake. I was so scared. I didn't come back up for air until I just couldn't hold my breath any longer. I don't know why I have a fear of bees. I have never been stung. They're just so big and loud!
Patrick Hof was a little boring, despite the sexy french accent. Except when he pronounced hippopotamus. That was funny!
Near the end of the video when Brian Hare was saying that we tend to look-by-lead. That if someone was looking up, we would either think he was crazy, or that he was looking at something and we would look in that direction.
It reminded me of this one time, 25 years ago. I worked for AGT downtown. We had this camera set up outside the building because a rare falcon had built a nest. They set up a live feed so we could watch them go from eggs to hatchlings...
Anyway, I was standing at this major bus stop at rush hour, waiting for my bus. There had to be at least
100 people waiting as well. Then, I heard the distinct call of this falcon. I looked up and I could see it circling around the tower of this really tall building in front of me. I watched it for a couple of minutes and then I heard the hissing of air breaks, so I looked to see if it was my bus. To my surprise, everyone
was looking up! As I made my way through the crowd to board my bus, I could hear people saying things like: "What is it?" and "What's everybody looking at?" and "I don"t know."
I knew what I was looking at but, 'Joe Public' didn't know about the rare falcon.
I got on the bus and all the way home, no matter how hard I tried, I kept breaking into spontaneous fits of laughter. People must have thought I
Another thing I found interesting (and funny) was the dogs and obedience. I used to have a big dog named Olson. He was a cross between a Newfoundland and a Labrador Retriever. He was so smart and obedient. You only had to tell him 'no' once. No matter how tempting. Even if it was his favorite treat, lying on the floor and I wasn't in the room? He wouldn't touch it until I gave him permission. He was a great friend. I really miss him.
I thoroughly enjoyed the video, Orpheus.
Thanks for sharing.
