Usually, I post a music video at the head of each playlist.
This time, I'm posting a public service announcement, one which I originally found via BoingBoing.
It's not meant (by me anyway) as a plug for Google. Nor is it an indication of my sexual orientation. I'm posting it because I understand only too well what it's like to be an outcast. Being smart, at least in the industrial town where I grew up, was looked down upon just as much being gay was.
