One of my favorite YouTube channels is Epic Rap Battes of History. Some of my favorite battles include Darth Vader vs. Adolf Hitler (and, of course, the rematch), Mr. T vs. Mr. Rogers (hilarious!), Napoleon vs. Napoleon, Gandalf vs. Dumbledore, and, of course, my favorite of all time, Albert Einstein vs. Stephen Hawking. However, just this morning I got a notification that the boys had finally posted a rap battle we’ve all been waiting for, one that I’m surprised they didn’t do a long time ago. That’s right: Steve Jobs vs. Bill Gates.
Apple vs. PC vs. Linux. Discuss. Yeah, I know. It’s a cheap, lazy, and obvious way to keep my blog active on a day after I was up late working on grants and didn’t have time to lay down some proper Insolence. You’ll just have to deal with it, I’m afraid. Grant crunch time consumes all, even this blog. Fortunately, I’ll have a couple of days now where I can’t do much writing as I wait for co-investigators and collaborators to weigh in.
As for my allegiances, all I can say is one word about the new retina display MacBook Pro: Want. Bad. (I know, that’s two words.)
