one thing i will never understand is how there are teenagers who tell their parents everything like who they like or having casual talks about sex when i can barely bring myself to tell my parents what i want for christmas
Have you ever seen the world’s most famous soliloquy being heckled by a dude and his sarcastic robot friends? If not, you’re seriously missing out, and you need to see this clip of Mystery Science Theater 3000 taking on Shakespeare. For those who don’t know MST3K, it’s hard to explain without sounding like I need to be committed, but long story short it’s a guy and his robots making fun of movies—in this case, a dubbed German made-for-TV version of Hamlet.
This video is just the highlights, the whole thing is here.

NOTE: In this post, I use terms such as “mad” and “insane” to refer to the characters in Hamlet, mostly because that terminology is what is used in the play itself. I’m not meaning them in an ableist sense. I actually greatly question whether or not the characters who are said to be “mad” in the play actually are and if it’s fair to call them such, hence you’ll see a lot of those terms in quotation marks within this post.

Iceland grieves after police kill a man for the first time in its history
December 5, 2013
It was an unprecedented headline in Iceland this week — a man shot to death by police.
"The nation was in shock. This does not happen in our country," said Thora Arnorsdottir, news editor at RUV, the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service.
She was referring to a 59-year old man who was shot by police on Monday. The man, who started shooting at police when they entered his building, had a history of mental illness.
It’s the first time someone has been killed by armed police in Iceland since it became an independent republic in 1944. Police don’t even carry weapons, usually. Violent crime in Iceland is almost non-existent.
"The nation does not want its police force to carry weapons because it’s dangerous, it’s threatening," Arnorsdottir says. "It’s a part of the culture. Guns are used to go hunting as a sport, but you never see a gun."
In fact, Iceland isn’t anti-gun. In terms of per-capita gun ownership, Iceland ranks 15th in the world. Still, this incident was so rare that neighbors of the man shot were comparing the shooting to a scene from an American film.
The Icelandic police department said officers involved will go through grief counseling. And the police department has already apologized to the family of the man who died — though not necessarily because they did anything wrong.
"I think it’s respectful," Arnorsdottir says, “because no one wants to take another person’s life. “
There are still a number of questions to be answered, including why police didn’t first try to negotiate with man before entering his building.
"A part of the great thing of living in this country is that you can enter parliament and the only thing they ask you to do is to turn off your cellphone, so you don’t disturb the parliamentarians while they’re talking. We do not have armed guards following our prime minister or president. That’s a part of the great thing of living in a peaceful society. We do not want to change that. "
