This MMA community has many non-MMA threads already.  Music, Jokes, baseball, football, etc.

So, I thought it might serve a purpose to create a thread for all the other contributions to each other's lives that don't fit anywhere else.

Do you have something that would enrich the community culturally?  Maybe dance, comedy, nutritional, inspirational, arresting visuals?  But please let's keep this positive, and appropriate to the general public.

Maybe a video clip of a movie, broadway show, highly unusual, utterly creative, a cutting edge piece of information, a new computer application, or something that would make someone's life better or richer.

The Nicholas Brothers & Dorothy Dandridge performing Chattanooga Choo Choo.
One of the all-time great dance routines.

From the 1941 movie, 'Sun Valley Serenade.  Glenn Miller Orchestra provides the swinging music.

Skip to 4:45 seconds into the clip.

MadMike.  Both those photos are in the lists of the photos I posted.  And I agree.  I never forgot tankman or Buddhist monk burning himself in protest to Vietnam war.  Or the Vietnamese chief of police shooting a Vietcong in the head.

Some images stay with you a lifetime.  Which is why some journalists get awards for amazing historical images.

And why I created this thread.  Can you imagine the level of mentality for someone to down arrow these things?  And yet 2 trolls actually did.

Speaking of culture.MMA is a great way to learn about other country's.

Without MMA I can honestly say I wouldn't know 90% of what I know about Brazil's awesome culture.

In Brazil, they had a Beauty Pageant for Grandmothers

They held a Beauty Pageant for Miss Brazilian Grandma, unlike any you'll see elsewhere.

It will raise the goose-bumps on your neck.

charlie chaplain and albert einstein and Clint Eastwood and Paul Newman were my favorites. i don't think eastwood and newman did a movie together. i can't think of it if they did. clint is my favorite actor. "The outlaw josey wales" and" high plains drifter" were my favorites.
