We've been soaking in the Bathtub for several months, long enough that some of the links we've used have gone to the Great Internet in the Sky.
If you find a dead link, please leave a comment to that post, and tell us what link has expired.

My blog, Millard Fillmore's Bathtub, is a continuing experiment to test how to use blogs to improve and speed up learning processes for students, perhaps by making some of the courses actually interesting. It is a blog for teachers, to see if we can use blogs. It is for people interested in social studies and social studies education, to see if we can learn to get it right. It's a blog for science fans, to promote good science and good science policy. It's a blog for people interested in good government and how to achieve it.

It’s only an indication that you don’t know what you claim to talk about, nothing more. Gore’s fortune is built almost entirely from large corporations like Google and Apple exploiting his knowledge and savvy advice on technical issues you try to ridicule Gore for not knowing.
Fun to watch Gore make money off of your ignorant use of his work. At least the profits go to a good cause, in his case.
LOL …. you win Steve Jobs owed it all to Al Gore. I stand corrected I will take Al Gore seriously. And thank god they only lost Steve Jobs , while Al Gore is still there….hand on the tiller
You know he took advantage of listening to Al Gore, put Gore on the board of directors at Apple. Maybe you could work to be as wise as Steve Jobs, and listen to Al Gore.

1. Did we see the same movie? – ok Potterville. I used to watch Charlie Brown every Christmas , it was, in part, a comment on the commercialisation of Christmas. We now have Macy Gray positing Hillary as santa. We now have the politicising of Christmas and its traditions. That is my complaint….remedy- listen to Linus.
2.”Wise people always listen to Al Gore” …..now which logical fallacy is this…mmh. Yes thank you politician Gore who helped privatise the internet, but does regulatory expertise really transfer across to other disparate fields ( they might think they are qualified- hello Dunning and Kruger). And if you make scary movies that purport to be facts and advocate societal change expands government into every facet on ones life- plus make millions from it – a serious person would be down in the culture war trenches arguing solutions and trying to convince people of the “greatest moral dilemma facing mankind”..except he’s not, he runs and hides from debate – he into the money.
You conflate his achievements with real heroes- I’m a Steve Jobs – Elon Musk sort of guy
Similarly, if one plays Capra’s “It’s a Wonderful Life” one is not really willing to celebrate the true Scrooginess of Christmas, unwilling to send poor to the workhouses and prisons just because it’s Christmas.
Wise people always listen to Al Gore. You use the internet, you use Apple devices or GUI, you use Google or other information-finding applications, you don’t have toxic wastes buried in your backyard, you owe him big time.
There’s a World Cup for Christmas Songs? Was Irving Berlin even entered?
Only if you’re a real human.
I guess if you put this track on at a Xmas party, you aren’t really wanting to celebrate the true spirit of christmas …. and really , I should take Al Gore seriously?
Oh, yes, it would not make his supporters happy! Another alternative Christmas song and very timely, Thanks for sharing!
