Bond: Hello? Uh, breakfast for one at nine, please… Green figs, yoghurt, coffee very black… Thank you.

So that’s when I said, “That’s not a
bulldog. That’s my girlfriend.” And that concludes another traditional Yale
information session. Any questions
before we start the tour? Yes. What year was Yale founded? Great question. Yale was founded in 1701. Thanks.
That’s actually all I wanted to know.
Bye. Is it true that all Yale
professors teach? Yet another great
question. It is true that every tenured
professor at Yale teaches undergraduates.
So even a freshman may learn from a Nobel Prize winner. Who are you?
Any more questions? What happened
to the original ???? video? No
more? Really? Great.
I have a question. Why did you
choose Yale? When I was a senior in high
school, I felt like I didn’t belong. I
had zero friends. No plans for the
weekends, cause I always broke out into song. But when I applied to college and got my
letters in the mail, I wanted to hail from a college called Harvard. But then I got rejected and went to
Yale. Welcome to the world’s largest
bathroom stall. From hookers to hobos we’ve
got them all. That’s just around the
grads and the tazing only adds to why I chose Yale. And gale arts and science never crash… Shut the fuck up and give me all your
cash. It happens here quite a bit. Come on.
Come on. And trust me, you’ll get
used to it. Fuck you! O-o-o-oh.
And that’s why I chose Yale.
Given the crime-ridden streets of New Haven, you’ll probably wanna spend
most of your time here inside one of our twelve Residential Colleges. These colleges are co-ed, unfortunately. But rest assured, they are much more than
just a living space. For all four years
we’ll all reside
Boy A: Yeah, admissions officer?
Admissions officer: Tell us a bit more about ... Residential Colleges.
Boy A: Sure thing. Students here at Yale come from everywhere around - with every type of interest that can possibly be found. Do our passions divide us? No, our colleges provide us with family and common ground. For all four years we'll all reside together in colleges, united by pride. With such great facilities to hone your abilities, you'll never wanna go outside.
Girl A: Every college has a dining hall with a salad bar and grill and organic options for every meal.
Boy B: I'm gonna eat my fill.
Boy C: Each one has a common room, which we could not live without, to study or to meet in groups, or simply to hang out.
Girl B: And when the dining halls are closed there's butteries for snacks
Boy D: And if you need a study break, there's game rooms to relax.
Girl C: I can get to my college library without stepping foot outside.
Boy E: And just right down the hallway, my clothes are washed and dried.
Girl D: I work out in my college gym, a mere two floors below. Then I meet my friends for rehearsal in the dance studio.
Boy F: There are tons of music practice rooms where I can hone my skills.
Boy G: We even have a movie theater.
Boy H: This one always gives me chills!
Girl E: We don't have normal dorms at Yale. Instead, we live in suites, so you may have a roommate.
Girl F: Uuh - we have matching sheets!
Girl E: Outside there's a common room, so come and stay a while. There's space for couches and TV's or a lava lamp if that's your style.
Boy: Yes, um... When was Yale founded?
Admissions officer: Great question. Yale was founded in 1701. Oh, um yes, you.
Girl: Is it true that all Yale professors teach?
Admissions officer: Another great question. It is true that every tenured Professor in Yale college teaches undergraduates, so even a freshman might be taking a class from a Nobel Prize winner.
Admissions officer: Any more questions?
Girl: Yeah. I have a question. Why did you choose Yale?
Admissions officer: When I was a senior in high school, colleges called out my name. Every day I'd debate where to matriculate, but every place seemed the same. Yet after I went through the options only one choice remained. I wanted to hail from a college called Yale.
Now let me explain...
It's a place where you'll learn quintessential knowledge, and you can live in a Residential College, and you can put your hearts into all the liberal arts. And that's why I chose Yale. Of course, you'll get a first-rate education, but also thrive on classmates' conversation. Here is where we thread Shakespeare Studies and Pre-Med, o-o-o-oh, and that's why I chose Yale.
“My fellow Americans. On Tuesday Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad launched a horrible chemical weapons attack on 1. innocent civilians. Using a deadly nerve agent Assad choked out the lives of helpless 2. men, women, and children. It was a slow and brutal 3. death for so many. Even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack. No child of God 4. should ever suffer such horror. Tonight I ordered a targeted military strike on the air field in Syria 5. from where the chemical attack was launched.”
“It’s very motive subject and the President Trump was 6. probably moved by pictures of, you know, poisoned children and women. Do you understand this motive, and would Russia 7. do the same if it had means?”
“It is the 8. duty of every leader to take decisions not based on personal 9. emotions but rather on hard facts. And unfortunately this decision on air strikes was taken by Washington, eh, 10. without hard facts in hand.”
“Mr. President, did you 11. give an order to strike Khan Sheikhun with chemical weapon last Tuesday?”
“There was no order to make any attack. We don’t have any chemical weapons. We gave up all arsenals three years ago. Even if we have them, 12. we wouldn’t use them. And we have never used our chemical arsenal 13. in our history.”
Trinity: This is it. Let me give you one piece of advice. Be honest. He knows more than you can imagine.
Morpheus: At last. Welcome, Neo. As you no doubt have guessed, I am Morpheus.
Neo: It's an honor to meet you.
Morpheus: No, the honor is mine. Please, come, sit. I imagine that right now you're feeling a bit like Alice, tumbling down the rabbit hole? Hm?
Neo: You could say that.
Morpheus: I can see it in your eyes. You have the look of a man who accepts what he sees because he is expecting to wake up. Ironically, this is not far from the truth. Do you believe in fate, Neo?
Morpheus: Why not?
Neo: Because I don't like the idea that I'm not in control of my life.
Morpheus: I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you're here. You're here because you know something. What you know you can't explain. But you feel it. You've felt it your entire life, that there's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is but it's there, like a splinter in your mind driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I'm talking about?
Neo: The Matrix?
Morpheus: Do you want to know what it is?
Protester: Some will be so brash to ask if we believe that all who hear Manson tomorrow night will go out and commit violent acts. The answer is "no." But does everybody who watches a Lexus ad go and buy a Lexus? No. But a few do.
Manson: I definitely can see why they would pick me, because I think it's easy to throw my face on a TV, because I'm, in the end, sort of a poster boy for fear. Because I represent what everyone's afraid of, because I do and say what I want.
Protester: If Marilyn Manson can walk into our town and promote hate, violence, suicide, death, drug use and Columbine-like behaviour, I can say, "Not without a fight, you can't."
Manson: The two by-products of that whole tragedy were, uh... violence in entertainment and gun control. And how perfect that that was the two things that we were gonna talk about with the upcoming election. And also, then we forgot about Monica Lewinsky and we forgot about... The president was shooting bombs overseas, yet I'm a bad guy because I sing some rock'n'roll songs. And who's a bigger influence, the president or Marilyn Manson? I'd like to think me, but I'm gonna go with the president.
Moore: Do you know the day that Columbine happened, the United States dropped more bombs on Kosovo than any other time during that war?
Manson: I do know that and I think that's really ironic, you know that, that nobody said, "Well, maybe the president had an influence on this violent behaviour. Because that's not the way the media wants to take it and spin it and turn it into fear. 'Cause then you're watching television, you're watching the news; you're being pumped full of fear. And there's floods, there's AIDS, there's murder. You cut to commercial, buy the Acura, buy the Colgate. If you have bad breath, they're not gonna talk to you. If you got pimples, the girl's not gonna fuck you. And it’s just this… it's a campaign of fear and consumption. And that's what I think that's it's all based on, is the whole idea that: keep everyone afraid, and they'll consume. And that's, that’s, really as simple as it can be boiled down to.
Moore: Right. If you were to talk directly to the kids at Columbine and the people in that community, what would you say to them, if they here right now?
Manson: I wouldn't say a single word to them. I would listen to what they have to say. And that's what no one did.
Moore: Yes, our children were indeed something to fear. They had turned into little monsters. But who was to blame? All the experts had an answer. “Angry, heavy-metal subculture.” “Where were the parents?” “Violent movies.” “South Park.” “Video games.” “Television.” “Entertainment.” “Satan.” “Cartoons.” “Films.” “Society.” “Toy guns.” “Drugs.” “Shock-rocker Marilyn Manson.” “Marilyn Manson.” “Marilyn Manson.” “Marilyn Manson.” “Marilyn Manson.”
Reporter: Marilyn Manson has cancelled the last five dates of his U.S, tour out of respect for those lost in Littleton. But the singer says artists like himself are not the ones to blame.
Official: This is perhaps the sickest group ever promoted by a mainstream record company.
Manson: I'm not a slave to a god that doesn't exist.
Moore: After Columbine, it seemed that the entire focus on why the shootings occurred was because the killers listened to Marilyn Manson. Two years after Columbine, Manson finally returned to Denver.
Reporter: The Oz Fest at Mile High Stadium brings shock-rocker Marilyn Manson to Denver tomorrow.
Moore: There were protests from the religious right. But I thought I'd go and talk with him myself.
Manson: When I was a kid growing up, music was the escape. That's the only thing that had no judgements. You know, you put on a record and it's not gonna yell at you for dressing the way you do. It's gonna make you feel better about it.
A Canadian: If guns were... If, if more guns made people safer, then America would be one of the safest countries in the world. It isn't. It's the opposite.
Moore: How many people are killed by guns each year? In Germany, 381. In France, 255. In Canada, 165. In the United Kingdom, 68. In Australia, 65. In Japan, 39. In the United States, 11127.
Professor Glassner: My favorite statistic in all the research I did discovered that the murder rate had gone down by 20 %. The coverage, that is how many murders are on the T… on the evening news, it went up by 600 %.
Prosecutor Bush: The American people are conditioned by network TV, by local news, to believe that their communities are much more dangerous than they actually are. For example, here, in this community, crime has decreased every year for the past eight years. Yet, gun ownership, particularly handgun ownership, is on the increase.
Professor Glassner: Crime rates have been dropping, dropping, dropping. Fear of crime has been going up, up, up. How can that be possible? It doesn't make any sense. And yet that makes perfect sense when you see what we're hearing from politicians and seeing in the news media.
Moore: Back in my hometown of Flint, Michigan, a six-year-old first-grade boy, at Buell Elementary, had found a gun at his uncle's house, where he was staying because his mother was being evicted. He brought the gun to school and shot another first-grader, six-year-old Kayla Rolland. With one bullet that passed through her body, she fell to the floor and laid there dying while her teacher called 911 for help. No one knew why the little boy wanted to shoot the little girl. As if the city had not been through enough horror and tragedy in the past two decades, it was now home to a new record: the youngest school shooting ever in the United States. On the morning of the shooting, it only took the news helicopters and satellite trucks a half-hour to show up on the scene.
Moore: Not far from where Charlton Heston and I grew up is a training ground for the Michigan Militia. The Michigan Militia became known around the world when, on April 19th, 1995, two guys living in Michigan who had attended Militia meetings, Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols, blew up the federal building in Oklahoma City, killing 168 people. The Michigan Militia wanted everyone to know that they were nothing like McVeigh and Nichols.
Michigan Militia Man: This is an American tradition. It's an American responsibility to be armed. If you're not armed, you're not responsible. Who's gonna defend your kids, the cops? The federal government? No, none of them. It's your job to defend you and yours. If you don't do it, you're in dereliction of duty, as an American. Period.
Michigan Militia Woman: I've had guns, um...pretty much since I was old enough to...to have them. And I learned how to use them, um...You're silly! Uh, because being a female, number one, I felt it was important to be able to protect myself with the best means possible. And one of those means is having a gun. When a criminal breaks into your house, who's the first person you're gonna call? Most people will call the police because they have guns. Cut off the middleman. Take care of your own family yourself. If you're not going to protect your family, who is?
James Nichols: I use the pen. 'Cause the pen is mightier than the sword. But you always must keep a sword handy, for when the pen fails. I sleep with a .44 Magnum under my pillow.
Moore: Come on. That's what everyone says. Is that true?
Nichols: It's true.
Moore: If we were to go…
Nichols: The whole world knows that.
Moore: If we were to go look under your pillow right now, would we see a .44 Magnum?
Moore: Honestly? Would you take us and show us? Right now? He took me into his bedroom, but told the cameraman to stay out. Sure enough, there was a .44 Magnum under his pillow. There it is. Okay. Is it loaded?
Nichols: Aye-yay-yay. No one has the right to tell me that I can't have it. That is protected on our constitution.
Heston: I have only five words for you: From my cold, dead hands.
Moore: Just ten days after the Columbine killings, despite the pleas of a community in mourning, Charlton Heston came to Denver and held a large pro-gun rally for the National Rifle Association.
Heston: Good morning. Thank you all for coming and thank you for supporting your organization. I also want to applaud your courage in coming here today. I have a message from the mayor, Mr. Wellington Webb, the mayor of Denver. He sent me this, and it says, "Don't come here. We don't want you here." I said to the mayor, "This is our country. As Americans we're free to travel wherever we want in our broad land." Don't come here? We're already here.
Daniel’s father: I am here today, because my son Daniel would want me to be here today. If my son Daniel was not one of the victims, he would be here with me today. Something is wrong in this country. When a child can grab a guns, grab a gun so easily, and shoot a bullet into the middle of a child's face, as my son experienced, something is wrong. But the time has come to come to understand that a Tech9 semi-automatic 30-bullet weapon like that that killed my son, is not used to kill deer. It has no useful purpose. It is time to address this problem.
Heston: We have work to do, hearts to heal, evil to defeat and a country to unite. We may have differences, yes, and we will again suffer tragedy almost beyond description. But when the sun sets on Denver tonight, and forever more, let it always set on we the people, secure in our land of the free and home of the brave. I, for one, plan to do my part. Thank you.
Dispatcher: Jefferson County 911.
Teacher: Yes, I'm a teacher at Columbine High School. There is a student here with a gun. He just shot out a window.
Dispatcher: Okay, has anybody been injured, ma’am?
Teacher: I don’t… Yes!
Teacher: Yes. And the school is in a panic, and I'm in the library. I've got students down. Under the tables, kids! Heads under the table! I saw a student outside! I was on hall duty…oh dear God. Okay, I was on hall duty, I saw a gun! I said, "What's going on out there?!" He turned the gun straight at us and he shot, and my God, the window went out. And the kid standing there with me, I think he got hit.
Dispatcher: We've got help on the way, ma'am.
Teacher: Oh God!
Dispatcher: Stay on line with me.
Teacher: Oh God!
Moore: When the shooting was over, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold had killed twelve students and one teacher. Dozens of others were wounded by the over 900 rounds of ammo that were fired. It is believed that the guns that they used were all legally purchased at stores and gun shows. And many of the bullets were bought at the Littleton K-Mart just down the street.
Reporter: Harris's diary also detailed ideas about hijacking an airplane and crashing it into New York City. Some may characterize that as fantasy...
Moore: In the end, they turned the guns on themselves.
Girl A: And then he came into the library, shot everybody around me, then put a gun to my head and asked if we all wanted to die and...
Girl B: We started hearing shots in the hall, and then they came in and they all told us to get under the desk and we all got under the desk and then they started coming in the library and opening fire...
Girl A: I just started screaming and crying and telling them not to shoot me. And so he shot the girl, he shot her in the head in front of me. Then he shot the black kid, because he was black.
Fennell: I, I think that the couple of things, Columbine did a couple of things. One is that it changed, it changed how we talk. That's the first thing. Because…
Moore: How's that?
Fennell: Well, for instance, if I say "Columbine," everybody knows what it means. I don't have to explain to you that Columbine..., er…
Moore: Is a what? What's wrong?
Fennell: Nothing’s wrong, just...
Moore: What's wrong?
Fennell: I... I just... sometimes Columbine bothers me. I'll be fine. Just a minute.
Moore: That's okay, that's okay.
Fennell: Um... There... there's something, something overwhelming about that kind of... viciousness, that kind of predatory action, that kind of indiscriminate, uh, killing.
(April 20, 1999)
(Largest one day bombing by U.S. in Kosovo War)
Reporter: Twenty-two NATO missiles fell on the village of Bogutovac near Kraljevo. Deadly cargo was dropped upon the residential part of the village.
President Clinton: We're striking hard at Serbia's machinery of repression, while making a deliberate effort to minimize harm to innocent people.
Reporter: On the hit list were a local hospital and primary school.
(One Hour Later)
President Clinton: We all know there has been a terrible shooting at a high school in Littleton, Colorado. I hope the American people will be praying for the students, the parents and the teachers. And, er, we'll wait for events to unfold and then there'll be more to say.
