Apathetic Open Thread

There is an old joke truism:

A survey was taken in the U.S. that asked “What is the greatest problem in the country today, ignorance or apathy?”

Fifty percent of respondents said “I don’t know”

Fifty percent of respondents said “I don’t care”

    What is the greatest problem in the country today?

  1. I Don’t Know…

    “I Don’t Know”

    People look to me and say

    Is the end near, when is the final day

    What’s the future of mankind

    How do I know, I got left behind

    Everyone goes through changes

    Looking to find the truth

    Don’t look at me for answers

    Don’t ask me – I don’t know

    How am I supposed to know

    Hidden meanings that will never show

    Fools and prophets from the past

    Life’s a stage and we’re all in the cast

    Ya gotta believe in someone asking me who is right,

    Asking me who to follow, don’t ask me, I don’t know,

    I don’t know – I don’t know – I don’t know

    Nobody ever told me I found out for myself

    Ya gotta believe in foolish miracles

    It’s not how you play the game

    It’s if you win or lose you can choose

    Don’t confuse win or lose, it’s up to you

    It’s up to you – it’s up to you – it’s up to you

    (solo)

    People look to me and say

    Is the end near, when is the final day

    What’s the future of mankind

    How do I know, I got left behind

    Everyone goes through changes

    Looking to find the truth

    Don’t look at me for answers

    Don’t ask me – I don’t know

    How am I supposed to know

    Hidden meanings that will never show

    Fools and prophets from the past

    Life’s a stage and we’re all in the cast

    Ya gotta believe in someone asking me who is right,

    Asking me who to follow, don’t ask me, I don’t know,

    I don’t know – I don’t know – I don’t know

    And I Don’t Care…

    “I Don’t Care”

    I don’t care

    I don’t care

    I don’t care

    About this world

    I don’t care

    About that girl

    I don’t care

    I don’t care

    I don’t care

    About these words

    I don’t care

    Speaking of ignorance, I run Firefox with Noscript blocking all script by default. Everyone’s youtube entries show up in my browser with the blocked Noscript icon where the video is usually shown, except your entries. Do you do something with the embed code that stops me from seeing the Noscript emblem until I allow the script? Please enlighten me and excuze mah ignernz.

  2. Do you know if there is any way to take videos from youtube, load them on a CD, DVD or thumb drive, then play them back in sequence? I’m primarily concerned with the audio part, to be used as background music for a gathering later this year.

    Any ideas?
