Smooth: Girl Drops Phone Out Of $2 Million Supercar, Driver Proceeds To Run Over It

supercar-phone-smash.jpg

This is a short video of a lady dropping her phone out the window of a $2 million Pagani Zonda, and the driver stopping just in time to rest the back tire on it. I think it’s hilarious how everybody watching yells for the driver to stop so he doesn’t run over the phone. I’m sorry, but you’re riding in a $2 million car, I don’t care about your phone.

Keep going for the video.

Cross Section USS Enterprise Drink Coasters

uss-enterprise-coasters-1.jpg

Remember those stacking Death Star cross section drink coasters? Well here’s a six piece set of $20 USS Enterprise ones for the Star Trek fan. Obviously, they’re the perfect coasters to find at a yard sale for a dollar, or fifty cents if one’s missing. I’ll give you a quarter for three and I won’t do donuts in your yard.

Keep going for a couple more shots.

Flute Beatboxing And Cello Cover Of The Game Of Thrones Theme

game-of-thrones-flute-beatbox.jpg

Wow, two beatboxing videos in two days — what are the odds?! “Shut up.” Okaaaaay. This is a video of flutist and beatboxer Jacklandstreet and cellist Thillman Benham (I’ve never been ham before but I was a turkey in a Thanksgiving school play once) performing the Game Of Thrones theme. DETAILS:

The flute and cello were recorded live at the magnificent undercroft of Baltimore’s Cathedral of the Incarnation. With high arches and stone architecture, this hall sends us back to a medieval era when dragons roamed. Armored in dragon scalemail, Jack takes on the visage of a Targaryen knight.

Ah yes, Jack did dress up for the occasion, didn’t he? Me? I never dress up for any occasion and usually don’t meet the dress code requirements for the places I’m going. Whatever, it’s not like I needed to go to my sister’s wedding reception anyways.

Keep going for the video.

The Goat With The Hardest Core Bleat Of All Time

hardcore-goat-bleat.jpg

This is a video of a goat with a bleat that sounds like a heavy beer drinker burping/about to puke. I was not expecting that. Of course I also wasn’t expecting my entire Facebook feed to be overrun with almost every single one of my friends posting the absolutely awful pictures they took of the eclipse today, yet here we are. Cool, we get it, you’re alive and have access to the outside. *popping pill* What a time to be alive. “Was that a cyanide capsule?” God I wish, just a multivitamin. “By multivitamin do you mean boner pill?” Yes I do, now it’s best you stand back.

Keep going for the video. The goat does it twice, once at the beginning and once at the end.

Oh Wow: Super Impressive South Korean Beatboxer Performance

beatboxing-pro.jpg

This is a video of South Korean beatboxing star Bigman’s performance for the 2017 Asia Beatbox Championship Solo Battle Wildcard. It is most impressive and I can’t believe somebody can even make all those sounds (although, FULL DISCLOSURE: I don’t really follow beatboxing so it could be this performance is just average on the grande scale of beatboxing skill and other people are way better). Me? I’m only good at making one kind of sound. “Fart sounds with your armpit?” Exactly. Plus they sound extra juicy if it’s hot out and I’ve been sweating.

Keep going for the video, it really is worth a watch, especially if you’re into this sort of thing.

Finally, A Custom Printed Luggage Wrap With Your Face On It

face-on-luggage-1.jpg

This is the Head Case luggage cover sold by FireBox. For $26 – $39 (depending on luggage size, available in small, medium and large) they’ll print a stretchable polyester spandex luggage cover with your face or anybody else’s face on it. Then there’s no way anybody can confuse your luggage for theirs. Unless of course your doppelgänger was on the same flight and also bought a Head Case. PROTIP: Use a picture from the night you passed out and your roommates drew a penis on your forehead for easier identification.

Keep going for a couple more shots.

Sinkhole Opens In Street, Scooter Rider Drives In

This is some traffic cam footage of a sinkhole swallowing a street in China, and a scooter driver plunging in afterwards. Thankfully, the driver escaped with only minor injuries, which is a relief because I assumed he plummeted straight to the center of the earth and was burned alive. Minor injuries sound way better than that, but nowhere near as sweet as winning the lottery.

Keep going for the whole video. Also, I liked how his headlight flashes around in the hole for a second before it disappears. I don’t know why, but I did.

Guy Takes His 97-Year Old Grandpa For A Ride In His Tesla, Old Man Loses His Mind With All The Features

grandpa-in-tesla.jpg

This is a video of Toronto, Canada commercial real estate broker Zev Gitalis taking his 97-year old grandfather for a spin in his new Tesla. His grandpa is very impressed with all the features, almost to the point of losing his mind. You know I rode in a Tesla once, I thought it was okay. “That was a Taurus.” I was wondering why it took almost a minute to hit 60MPH. In grandpa’s own words:

I haven’t had an experience like this in my life, I don’t remember ever seeing such forward looking things. That’s what they are. They look like a century from now.

Oh, to be old again. Honestly, I was more impressed with his grandpa’s mental clarity than I was with the car. When I’m 97 (which is incredibly unlikely) I’m just hoping I don’t poop my pants waiting in line for my fast food breakfast in the morning. And it BETTER be fast. Come on — I don’t have much time left on this planet, how long do hash browns take?! Also, nice try, Elon, but I recognize a thinly veiled Tesla commercial when I see one.

Keep going for the video. It’s pretty sweet.

Classic: Video Of A Pig Falling For The Old Carrot On A Stick Trick

pig-with-carrot-on-a-stick.jpg

This is a video of Banks (presumably like Piggy Banks?) the pig getting tricked into exercising with the old carrot on a stick ruse. You know I actually tried the same thing with my dog once with much less impressive results, presumably because she doesn’t give a shit about carrots. Then I replaced the carrot with a Sim Jim and…yeah. There’s a reward if you find her.

Battle Ready: Shots Of A Chameleon Wieldling Tiny Weapons

chameleon-with-weapons-1.jpg

These are several shots of 2-year old Olive the chameleon wielding tiny weapons. In owner Emma Ward’s own words while I try to teach my dog how to wield a bow and arrow without accidentally shooting me in the ass while my back is turned. *ahem* Margaret — that WAS an accident, right?

“Knowing she likes to grasp anything that goes in her hands, I thought Lego swords and Evangelion weapons would be an interesting idea,” Ward told Chron.com. She got the nearly 2-year-old Olive in April 2016 from a reptile exhibition in Detroit, and they have been best friends ever since.

Great, so not only are chameleons masters of camouflage, but they can also wield weapons now. Obviously, it’s only a matter of time before some evil villain employs an army of weaponized chameleons to do his bidding for him. And on that day THE WORLD WILL BE MINE — MWAHAHAHAHA! “Because you are that evil villain?” That’s what I was insinuating, yes.

Keep going for a couple more shots as well as somebody else’s flying squirrel holding some weapons and somebody else’s teensy chameleon holding a gun because you should never have to go into battle yourself (unless it’s a duel, in which case teaming up is generally frowned upon).

Peppy Hare Would Be Proud: Fighter Pilot Pours And Drinks Water While Doing Barrel Rolls

water-vs-barrel-rolls-in-fighter-jet.jpg

This is ‘Water vs Gravity’, a video of YouTuber and fighter pilot Linkerius demonstrating his ability to pour and drink water out of a cup while doing barrel rolls in a jet. I mean, impressive, sure, but wouldn’t it have been easier to just pack a Capri-Sun? We’ve sent humans to the moon, man, you don’t have to drink out of a regular cup in your fighter jet.

The Evolutionary History Of Pokemon, As A Tree Of Life

pokemon-tree-of-life-640.jpg

Note: Much larger version HERE, but save the image to see it in full-res.

This is the Pokemon Tree Of Life V4.0, which includes all species of pocket monster through the seventh generation. I learned a lot by studying it. Mostly, that it looks like a weed and there are a lot of Pokemon. I’ve very astute. I even used to work for Sherlock Homes. “You mean Holmes?” No I do not. Sherlock Homes, Oklahoma’s largest new & used mobile home dealer.

Thanks to Cyndi M, who wants to know which came first, the pocket or the monster.

Two Year Old Mistakes Batman Statue For Her Dad

batman-dad-1.jpg

This is a short video of Youtuber Emills01’s 2-year old daughter (technically 22-month old daughter but I don’t like counting in months unless I’m counting down to my birthday or Christmas) mistaking a Batman statue at the mall for her “dada,” and trying to get his attention. So, if you were ever wondering the secret identity of Batman, it’s this girl’s father.

“Dada” here.

I’ve never dressed up as Batman. I don’t even have Batman stuff around the house.

The only thing I can think of is the huge muscles that resemble mine.

Man, that has got to be one of the laziest coverups I’ve ever heard. “I don’t even have Batman stuff around the house.” Well of course you don’t, BECAUSE IT’S ALL IN THE BATCAVE. Don’t worry though, Batman, your secret’s safe with me. *immediately calls Joker asking for a reward*

String Wizard: The 2017 World Yoyo Champion's Winning Routine

This is a video of 2017 World Yoyo Champion Shu Takada’s winning routine. It is most impressive. Yoyos can actually come back to you?! That’s news to me. “You’re an idiot.” That is not news to me. Half the tricks this guy performs border on sorcery, and I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised to learn he’s wearing an Amulet Of Return around his neck. “What the hell are you talking about?” Tsk tsk — sounds like somebody’s been skipping their magic artifact class this semester. I’m telling Professor Snape. “Snape’s dead.” I’m only on book three!

So That's What That Looks Like: Getting A System Error In Augmented Reality

augmented-reality-system-error.jpg

This is a short Twitter video of iOS developer Henry Everett getting a stream of system errors while tooling around with Apple’s ARKit augmented reality framework. It reminds me of the animation from when when you used to win a game of Windows solitaire. I was always more of a Freecell guy myself. “Fascinating.” Wait till I tell you what I had for lunch today! “What did you have for lunch today?” Nothing, I spent the whole time on the phone trying to dispute a credit card charge. “You really are the most interesting man in the world.” If not galaxy!

Star Trek The Original Series Road Trip Sunshade

star-trek-sunshade-1.jpg

This is the Star Trek TOS Road Trip Sunshade featuring Kirk, Spock, McCoy, and Scotty, presumably heading to Vegas to bet the Enterprise on a hand of blackjack. Man, I remember the first time I bet my spaceship on a game of cards. “How’d that work out for you?” I lost it and now I’m stuck here on earth. “That’s depressing.” Plus the alien I lost it to ate my crew.

Near Death Experiences: First Person POV Of Motorcyclist Surviving 250-Foot Fall Down Cliff

This is a video news report about motorcyclist Matthew Murray, who accidentally drove his cycle off a 250-foot cliff in the Santa Monica mountains after hitting a road’s gravel shoulder at 40MPH and being unable to stop. Clearly, Matthew had an angel looking out for him that day. Me? I have an angel looking out for me EVERY day. “Yeah, that’s definitely a winged succubus.” She is always waving her bare tits around.

Shockingly, Murray was able to get up and walk away from where he landed, but wasn’t able to get to his bike to call 911 from his phone. He instead had to climb back up the hill and flag down a passing car to contact emergency personnel for him. Despite being able to walk, Murray still suffered a broken back, collarbone, hip, pelvis, and has two punctured lungs which will require at least a couple of months to recover.

He’s definitely lucky to be alive. You know what I would have done if I drove my motorcycle off a cliff? “Transformed into an eagle and flown away?” Exactly. But that’s just me and I was granted the gift of shapeshifting by a wizard who I helped out of a bind once. “But if you can turn into an eagle and fly, why ride a motorcycle in the first place?” Cause I’m a bad boy! “No seriously.” I just never thought of it.

Keep going for the news report.

Another Day, Another Lost Wedding Ring Found With A Carrot Growing Through It

bonus-carat-ring.jpg

This is a shot of 84-year old Mary Grams’ diamond wedding ring, which she lost while weeding her Alberta, Canada garden back in 2004 and covered it up by buying a similar ring and wearing it ever since. Thirteen years later and her daughter-in-law pulls it out of the ground attached to a vegetable, adding an additional full carat to the diamond’s total weight (Wocka wocka wocka!). How about that? (Previously: the same thing happening to an 82-year old man in Germany) So class — what’s the lesson we learned here today? “Always take your jewelry off before working in the garden.” Oh that’s good — that’s REALLY good. I was going to say only grow potatoes, but I like yours even better. Only slightly though, just for the record.

Japanese Toy Designer Builds His Cats A Cardboard Mecha Kitty Condo

cardboard-cat-mecha-1.jpg

These are a couple shots and a short video of the cardboard mecha kitty condo that Japanese toy designer Kuramochi Kyoryu built for his cats. Admittedly, that looks like a pretty fun place to play. You know where my cats like to play? In my bedroom closet. I’m not entirely sure what they do in there, but they make a hell of a lot of noise doing it. I suspect they’re trying to claw a hole through the wall to get into the pantry where I keep all the Fancy Feast, oblivious to the fact my closet doesn’t even share a wall with the pantry. Dumb cats! “They tricked you into feeding them twice this morning.” They’re little geniuses.

Freaky Deaky Marine Animal Whose Entire Head Is A Giant Expanding Mouth

This is a video of a species of predatory nudibranch sea slug (Melibe leonina) repeatedly showing off its giant mouth in the search for food. It kind of reminded me of someone trying to stretch their scrotum over the bright end of a flashlight. “Um, what?” I was a biology major in college. “You said you were a marketing major.” I was, my biology major was entirely extracurricular. “I don’t even want to know.” You absolutely don’t, believe me.
