I came across a brilliant comedy routine on the unlikely subject of "the history of oil" by Robert Newman. Anyone who can laugh-and make me laugh-about these subjects deserves the highest award for highbrow comedy. I'm also quite impressed with the Google video site. I've already sworn off ever buying a cable connection, but if a few more of such sites were around, I might swear off Netflix as well. And no, the picture isn't Newman in drag. I just had to fit this photo in somewhere!
