It's Winter... Why not?

Random--I know, but if you've got ten minutes to waste, why not learn something.

I ran across this video the other day and thought it was pretty interesting. It was made in 1949 in northern Canada. Watching this feels so much like something that would have been shown to us in elementary school. I can almost feel the rough, itchy, horribly colored, all-weather carpet underneath me as we all settle down on the floor while the teacher rolls the TV in on an unusually tall cart. Then she struggles with the VCR trying to get the video to play. Once the video starts to play we have no sound and after watching the first minute or so she figures that part out, rewinds the tape and finally starts the video from the beginning with everything working. 

OK class, settle down, the video is about to start...
Enjoy.   :)

Pez! There truly is only one! I found you (and your awesome igloo building video) through the Skow Hacienda blog... but do you remember where we met before? Think back to June of 2007 in PA, at Alex's wedding. Justin and I live in CS now, and go to church with the Skows. Small world. Or blogosphere. Or... whatever.

Anyway. Thanks for the education. I didn't have ten minutes to waste, but managed to squeeze it in anyhow! Have a great weekend.
