It has been pointed out that this is a repeat from over four years ago, but we've decided to let it run again for those of you who didn't see it the first time.

SilentStrider: Helen Keller/Anne Frank jokes are to funny what Benghazi is to scandals.


But the Amelie Earhart hat-trick makes it all worthwhile.

Warthog: Okay, sorry for thinking this was new.  I received my Smithsonian.com weekly newsletter this morning (yeah, I'm a history geek), and they both called this out in the subject line and the body of their newsletter.  They didn't actually call it new; I inferred that.  Why they're linking to four year old YouTube videos is beyond me.

So Mods, replace the cool tag with Repeat if you like Mods, or just redlight it if you think this amounts to spamming the oh-so-packed video tab, but I for one hadn't read the article four years ago and thought this was neat.

It's a very interesting video, and for the record, this is the first time I've seen it. I'm sure that applies to a lot of people on fark, so don't sweat it, okay. :-)

And yes, it's very neat.

Anybody want a copy of the font I made from Helen Keller's handwriting? EIP.

Yes, her handwriting. She evidently had a metal template with rectangular cutouts which she could use to make very gridlike letters. It's pretty cool.

It's new to me. I had no idea such footage existed.

It's one thing if a repeat is a repeat that was greened yesterday, or even this week. But if it was months or years ago then only the most pedantic of us give a rat's ass - and really, who cares what those whiners say? Some of us don't have our brain stem plugged directly in to an ethernet port and don't see every new link on the internet every day.

So thanks for the cool link, bud.

And naturally they don't have footage of the time she invented Socialism.
