Remember that thread where everybody posted their survival tips for the middle ages? (previously) Well, this singer/songwriter named Hillel compiled those tips and made them into a song.

Thank you, Kottke.

Ok, well, if this is a double because it's been posted as a comment in a 14-day-old thread, the mods will surely delete it.

But I hope they don't. Not everybody's so obsessive that they keep checking old threads, and I think that this song will make people laugh.

If they liked the old thread enough to post in it, it'll bubble up in their recent activity.

Count me with Standeck, I thought it was going to be a song about the benefits of dietary fiber and retirement planning.

And I had totally forgotten about that previous thread and even though I liked it a lot, neglected to post in it or favorite it, so thanks for the callback.

I liked the original thread better. It had more soul.

If you're going to bring up an old thread, then how about this one (sort of NSFW). Musical accompaniment? Check.

Just when I was (naively) beginning to think that the Internet could no longer shock me. I guess I should have known better.

Going back to how to survive 1000 years ago: hook up with these guys!
One day, presumably a wet Thursday, a secret society of medieval weavers suddenly decided to create an even more secret society of global assassins.
