This is a short video captured off the coast of Cape Cod of a great white shark breaching behind a boat to steal a young boy’s fish that a woman was helping him pull in. That must have been exhilarating. And here I thought fishing was all just sitting around and drinking beer to get away from your wife for a while. “It kinda is.” Sure, sure, but sometimes a terrifying shark appears to remind you of her.
Keep going for the whole video, but the gif is really it minus the audio reactions.

This is a video from Interstate 35 In Dallas, Texas of a man on a Lime electric scooter crossing five lanes of traffic to make his exit (what was he doing in the fast lane in the first place?!). Granted traffic isn’t exactly moving at a NASCAR pace at 8:54 AM, but I’m pretty sure you aren’t supposed to ride those things on the highway at any time of day. But what do I know? I’m just a man who’s only ridden one of those rentable electric scooters once and ate shit so hard I swore I’d never step foot on one again. *rolling up pant leg* You see this? “Your penis?” Thank God it wasn’t injured.

This is a trailer for the Thanksgiving release of A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood, starring second nicest man in the world Tom Hanks as first nicest man in the world Fred Rogers. It looks like the kind of movie you can expect to smile and cry at the same time while watching. Still, it was a little hard for me to see Tom Hanks and try to pretend he’s Mister Rogers. I know Mister Rogers. I’ve honestly probably seen all 912 episodes of his show, and a lot two or three times. “And you’re still a monster.” Unfortunately, I’m afraid I was a little too young to internalize his message.
Keep going for the trailer.

This is a short video of some idiot in Los Angeles (there are a lot of them — everywhere, really) who decided to secure a box to the top of his car with blue painter’s tape (you know, the stuff that’s made to remove easily). As far as good ideas go, this isn’t one. Unfortunately no word what was in the box, but I imagine as soon as he makes a turn or stops too quick the person driving behind him is getting a free one.
Keep going for the video. Also, I like how he made the one horizontal strip to hold the other strip down — that’s gonna do the trick.

These are several shots and a video of the now-available-for-$25-preorder CrunchCup, a cup designed for eating milk and cereal on the go. Basically it consists of two individually insulated cups (the inner for cereal and outer for milk) that keep the ingredients separated until you tilt the cup to eat from, at which point you get a mouthful of dry cereal and milk at once. That’s sounds good. Like a good way to choke when a rogue Cheerio tries to dive past your teeth down your throat. Alternatively, wake up five minutes earlier so you can eat your cereal out of a bowl at a table like not a crazy person.
Keep going for a few more shots of a CrunchCup family having the time of their lives (except the dad– he looks like he’s up to something) and a video of people trying the CrunchCup while I wonder how the hell I’m supposed to get my cereal milk all chocolatey now.

This is a video from Zach Pierce’s Nest home security cam in Bend, Oregon of a kid who jumps in one of his trash cans to avoid the police chasing him. Apparently it was “a 90° day and the garbage can was full of baby diapers and cat litter scoopings. It REEKED.” I’m honestly surprised the kid didn’t pass out and die in there. Granted that may be how you win at hide-and-seek, but that is not how you win at living. I wonder what this kid did. I need BACKSTORY. Although based on what I could gather from the footage, it appears he may have been caught running away from a haircut.
Keep going for the whole video, complete with officer walking right by, then a fast forward to the kid emerging 30 minutes later and taking off.

This is a short video of Shaq entering the mosh pit at the Tomorrowland EDM festival in Boom, Belgium. Man, he moves through that pit like a hot knife through butter. Apparently Shaq (aka DJ Diesel) also performed a set at the festival afterwards. That’s cool. Maybe not as cool as convincing Shaq to let you ride on his shoulders chicken-fight style so you can kick a bunch of moshers in the face, but a boy can dream of driving his own human battle mecha, can’t he?
Keep going for the video, as well as Shaq’s hour-long DJ set.

This is a video of video game player/video maker Dunkey playing ‘1-1 but with a twist’, allegedly the hardest Mario Maker level made to date (but certainly not marry). It, uh, it definitely looks like a controller thrower. The level currently has only 52 completions in 347,634 attempts, for a 0.01% clear rate. Personally, I rage-quit the Youtube video several times just watching, but Dunkey eventually manages to complete it. How, I don’t know, I can only assume the devil is still accepting souls for hasty decisions made in anger.
Keep going for the whole video.

Remember that Picard teaser trailer from earlier this year? It didn’t really tell us much except the captain had left his position at Starfleet and was living the simple life, making his own wine. Thankfully, this new trailer answers some of the questions posed in the first, and provides a little more insight into the series. SPOILER: there will be aliens. Also: conflict. “They should have pulled that drawer open all the way.” Dammit, I can’t take you anywhere, even if you are right.
Keep going for the video, complete with obligatory “Engage.”

This is the just-released-at-Comic-Con teaser trailer for Netflix’s upcoming The Witcher series. Now I’ll admit I haven’t read the books and my only experience with The Witcher is playing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, but I did play the game and the Hearts Of Stone and Blood And Wine DLCs to completion and collected every trophy, so I did spend something like 160+ hours in Geralt’s world. I guess what I’m saying is I’m at least a little invested. How does the trailer look? Promising, and the production value seems high. Still, just like they say about nudie magazines and their covers — you can’t judge a show by its trailer. So, fingers crossed it’s a banger, but even if it isn’t I still have literally hundreds of hours of other shows I’ve been meaning to watch.
Keep going for the teaser. SPOILER: Lots of grey hair.

Because apparently some people still know how to make a decent movie, actor/producer Ian Ziering (Steve from 90210) and his director from all those Sharknado movies are premiering Zombie Tidal Wave on the SYFY channel August 17th. In case you couldn’t tell from the title, it’s about zombies rising from the sea floor and culminating in its namesake zombie tidal wave. Is it gonna be a movie you could Netflix and chill to? No, I already told you — it’s coming out on the SYFY channel. But is it a movie you could make out to? Depends on who you’re trying to make out with, but I’d recommend somebody you only plan on seeing once, or every day for the rest of your lives together.
Keep going for the trailer.

This is the $300 life-size posable plush Cookie Monster replica (right) up for possible production via HasLab, Hasbro’s crowdfunding platform for limited edition, collectible toys. The 38-inch, 10-pound cookie crushing monster will be made available if they reach their minimum funding goal. On the HasLab website it says their target is 3,000 units, although I’m not sure if that’s the minimum funding goal. I assume it is? Like sex, I’m not really sure how these things work. “He thought a Play-Doh fun factory would make a good sex toy.” No, I thought it would make a great sex toy. “And?” AND I WAS WRONG. “And?” And the new sheets should be here tomorrow.
Keep going for a handful more shots while I evaluate the break room vending machine for cookie options.

This is a short video of a puppy trying to lick the picture of an ice cream cone on the side of a Nestle ice cream cart. I’ve done that before. “Licked a picture of an ice cream cone?” I didn’t mean LITERALLY, I meant figurative. You know, like– okay yeah I meant literally. Whatever, I eat the fake fruit whenever my mom takes me to the craft store too, I don’t care.

This is some video footage from an ABC News helicopter of a man scaling down the exterior of a 19-story apartment building in Philadelphia after somebody’s trash compactor started a fire, causing the building to be evacuated. Why he chose the Spider Man route instead of the stairs is beyond me, but I suspect he wanted to put his newfound superpowers to the test. Now I’m not certain what floor he started on, but in the video he’s at least seven or eight stories up. Clearly, a bold decision maker. Or a man on drugs. Whatever the case, I like how the firemen at the bottom lend a hand after he reaches the scaffolding on the first floor like he didn’t just climb down at least seven other stories like a f***ing gecko.

These are several photos captured by photographer Christian Spencer starring a black and white Jacobin hummingbird flying in front of the sun and filtering the light through its wings, causing a prismatic effect. Per Christian while I briefly wish I was a hummingbird until I realize how much I hate my heart feeling like it’s about to beat out my chest:
The photo captures the exact moment in which the sunlight penetrates the wings of a Black and white Jacobin hummingbird revealing a secret of nature that cannot be seen with our eyes. This photo contains no digital manipulation.
Beautiful, isn’t it? You know sometimes Mother Nature really does let her inner beauty shine. *watches giant spider eat mouse* Enough is enough, it’s time for an intervention.
Keep going for a couple more shots of the tiny, majestic beauty.

This is a video from underwater cinematographer Dan Abbott starring wildlife biologist Lizzie Daly diving alongside a massive barrel jellyfish off the coast of Cornwall in the UK. I presume it’s called a barrel jellyfish because it reminded early pirates of the rum barrels they wished they were drinking from as they sung sea shanties and fantasized about the bar wenches at their next port o’ call.
The jellyfish just “appeared out of the murky water,” Daly said, bigger than any other barrel jellyfish they’d ever seen. They swam with it for about an hour, Daly told Motherboard.
“It really humbles you to be alongside an animal that size,” Daly said. “It’s an experience we’ll never forget.”
Why, that’s the second biggest monkey head I’ve ever seen! Anybody? “The Secret Of Monkey Island.” Heck yeah *high fiving* I knew there was a reason I wanted to marry you so bad. And not just because your parents are rich. “My parents aren’t rich.” Give me back the Ring Pop. “But I already licked it.” I said give it back!

This is a video from Youtuber LockPickingLawyer (how much to go wipe a crime scene clean for me?) trying to pick an UNPICKABLE (per the product packaging) Europa Disc dimple keyed padlock. It takes him all of about fifteen seconds and very little effort. In fact it looks so easy I feel like anybody who just watched this Youtube video could do it, including children and most pets without fins.
Keep going for the video while I survey coworkers to see if they’re protecting any valuables behind a Europa Disc lock.

An authentic Oscar Mayer Wienermobile will available for AirBnB stays in the Chicago area starting July 24th for $136/night and I am going to stay in it and I am going to eat all the hot dogs and make everyone who rents it after me regret it. Some more info while I wonder why there aren’t more wiener themed AirBnB rentals like there should be:
Housed inside an authentic Oscar Mayer Wienermobile, this cozy space for two is located in Chicagoland. Complete with a bed for dreaming of wienies, sitting area for discussing at length whether a hot dog is a sandwich (spoiler alert – it is!) and other amenities like adjacent outdoor spaces for the bathroom and a hot dog picnic zone
Amenities include a mini fridge stocked with Oscar Mayer hot dogs and all the Chicago-style hot dog essentials, an Oscar Mayer roller grill to take home, an outdoor space for comfortable hot dog eating and a custom Wienermobile art piece by local artist Laura Kiro. And to help you celebrate your love of hot dogs during your visit, each guest also will receive a welcome kit, complete with all the hot dog-inspired accessories you could want
‘Each guest will receive a welcome kit, complete with all the hot dog-inspired accessories you could want’? Bold words, because I could want a LOT of hot dog-inspired accessories. All of them as a matter of fact. Plus I’m going to eat so many hot dogs I become a hot dog. “You are what you eat.” Are you calling me grass and paint chips?
Keep going for a few more shots of the accommodations while I plan how I’m gonna wienerjack that thing and drive it off into the woods and live in it during the apocalypse.

This is a video from a home’s new 360-degree motion detecting security cam that, detecting some motion, turns towards the action and SURPRISE — it’s just the other half of the home’s security team. Man, I wish I had cool coworkers. Plus worked security and was allowed to carry a tazer. But noooooo, you taze yourself ONE TIME trying to dig some candy out of your pocket during a long meeting and all of a sudden you’re “a liability” and “we’re gonna have to let you go.”
