So shrink it.
Via American Digest, who explains:
This footage was filmed around 1900 in the cities of London, England, and Cork, Ireland. However, it doesn’t look like any 100-year-old film you’ve seen, because it’s been altered to make it more like being there than the film technology of the time could produce. This video has been dramatically enhanced in quality, using modern video editing tools. The film has been motion stabilized and the speed has been slowed down to correct speed (from 18 fps to 24 fps) using special frame interpolation software that re-creates missing frames. Upscaling to HD quality was done using video enhancer software.
This is a beautiful time of year for flowers and rejuvenation. So what better time to post two of my favorite saddest songs.
Some of the images in this video do evoke a chuckle or two.
And John Prine.
For those who don’t know, actor Jim Carrey put out a video mocking gun owners.
Jim Carrey was once coupling with actress/nude model Jenny McCarthy and joined her in her campaign against childhood vaccination.

Explanation: Does it rain on the Sun? Yes, although what falls is not water but extremely hot plasma. An example occurred in mid-July 2012 after an eruption on the Sun that produced both a Coronal Mass Ejection and a moderate solar flare. What was more unusual, however, was what happened next.
Plasma in the nearby solar corona was imaged cooling and falling back, a phenomenon known as coronal rain. Because they are electrically charged, electrons, protons, and ions in the rain were gracefully channeled along existing magnetic loops near the Sun’s surface, making the scene appear as a surreal three-dimensional sourceless waterfall.
The resulting surprisingly-serene spectacle is shown in ultraviolet light and highlights matter glowing at a temperature of about 50,000 Kelvin. Each second in the above time lapse video takes about 6 minutes in real time, so that the entire coronal rain sequence lasted about 10 hours.
On celebrity Jeopardy, Wolf Blitzer could not name the town where Jesus was born. Even the biggest atheist would, by his age, have been exposed to “Oh Little Town of Bethlehem” a few thousand times.
Wolf ended his round $4600 in the hole, probably a record. So his idiotic comment about Marco Rubio fits right in.
And here’s are some highlights of the Wolfman (who doesn’t know) Jack. It should have ended his yapping career, but CNN is not a meritocracy.
