    The most remarkable thing about this video may be that, in the age of the nano-second attention span, people are actually concentrating and thinking, for an extended period of time.

    The bilge does seem nominally disrespectful. Interesting link; interesting painting.

    Many of them are crying. A painting of their invisible friend in the sky.

    Nice post, Jack, but you missed some zeros.

    The painting sold for $450 million. ( $450,312,500, to be exact)

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    Thanks Kevin for the correction. (been always bad at math) My daughter works for Christie's. She clewed me in on watching the auction via the internet and face book. When the auctioneer slapped the gavel down it was at 400 million. The rest must be some kind of charges etc. Interesting to view it from two sources. Face book was several seconds or more ahead of Christie's site . This via a mac and older PC.

    BTW the auctioneer sure waits long for another bidder to chime in , mostly by phone. I guess more bucks for Christie's.
