Go see The Age Of Stupid

A very cool looking movie that will hopefully make folks think a bit.  A man in 2055 looks back at the year 2008 through video clips and asks the question : Why didn't they do anything when they had the chance?

Monday Sept 21, the makers of the film are holding a worldwide premiere in order to get it in the Guinness Book Of World Records and get some attention.  To be a part of it check out the site.
