Astonishing cover of Tool's "46 and 2" by schoolkids, some of whom seem extremely young. The drummer looks about 12, and is utterly amazing.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

Yes, OK, that's pretty damn good. Excuse me while I go chop up the drum kit and the bass. Won't be needing them any more...

I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.
