Guy Goes Nuts Brushing Teeth During Live Concert

Note: volume, keep it low.

This is a video of some lunatic going nuts brushing his teeth and all around losing his mind while at a live Merzbow concert, which sounded less like a concert and more a flagrant attempt to destroy my eardrums. Some more info about Merzbow:

Merzbow is a Japanese noise project started in 1979 by Masami Akita. Merzbow is best known for a style of harsh, confrontational noise.

Hmmm, best known for a style of hard, confrontational noise? You know *looks around nervously, lowers voice* they should really get my girlfriend on a track. “48 with scattered thunderstorms.” Huh? “Your forecast for sleeping outside tonight.” It was a joke, honey!

Keep going for a short video of just the maniac, as well as a longer video of the whole track, with dude very clearly visible in a lot of the shots (he’s hard to miss).

WTF Are You?: Freaky Deaky Predator Seaslug Eating Everything In Its Path

This is a video of what appears to be a penis-headed seaslug (a “carnivorous nudibranch from the Melibe genus”) devouring anything unfortunate enough to be in the way of its freaky expanding mouth hole as it meanders across the seafloor off the coast of Indonesia. Ha, and people still don’t believe in aliens. How much more proof do you need, sheeple?! It’s time to wake up! “Huh?” I’m serious this isn’t a dream I’m your mom and you’re late for school.

Keep going for the video.

Watch Where You're Going!: Two Paragliders Collide In Mid-Air (Where Else?)

This is a video (with multiple angles) of two paragliders running into each other, and the helmet-cam footage from one as he returns to the ground. It’s crazy — all that vast, empty blue sky up there and you manage to run into another person. That’s like never failing to run into one of my parents’ church friends whenever I’m out. Like of all the liquor stores in the world, you had to buy your losing lotto tickets from this one while I’m yelling at the clerk about how the last bottle of tequila he sold me was defective.

Keep going for the video. Honestly, I blame Tesla’s Autopilot feature.

Taste-O-Vision: A Device That Can Allegedly Synethesize Any Flavor On Your Tongue

This is a short video about the “taste display” Norimaki Synthesizer that can allegedly replicate the taste of any flavor on a user’s tongue. Some more info while I set my Norimaki Synthesizer to nipple:

It uses a set of five electrolytic flavor gels which are electrically stimulated to produce taste sensations on its user’s tongue. The process of electrophoresis is used to subtractively adjust the amount of sweet (glycine), salty (sodium chloride), bitter (magnesium chloride), acidic (citric acid) and umami (glutamic sodium) flavors which are released. Theoretically, these five base flavors could replicate just about any flavor you’d like, and the system has already been used to simulate flavors ranging from sushi to gummy candies.

But how well does it actually work? And shouldn’t it be combined with Smell-O-Vision for the full tasting experience? Still, I suppose even if i doesn’t work, at least if you use as seen in the gif you’ll have a better idea how to pleasure a robot, which will be an important skill to have in the future.

Keep going for the full video, which isn’t much more than the gif really.

Engineer's Automated, Hidden Basement Entrance

hidden-basement-entrance.jpg

This is a video of the hidden basement entrance constructed by an engineer for his home in Baltimore, Maryland. Some more info while I wish I had a cool, hidden anything in my house besides nudie mag stash. “In a Nike shoebox in the closet.” Honey!:

“This is a video of a family friend’s entryway into their basement. The dad who built it is an engineer and is not the dad talking in the video, but the one standing at the bottom of the stairs. Many people asked how water would stay out, there is a drain at the bottom of the stairs and then a sealed door into the basement.”

Based on the way that guy is talking in the video you’d never guess he wasn’t the man responsible. It’s always awkward when your neighbors come over and get too drunk. Like you live two houses down, go back home and pee on your own toilet seat, Alan.

Keep going for the video while I ruminate on how Alan really is the absolute worst.

Autopiloting Tesla Model 3 Drives Straight Into Roof Of Overturned Box Truck On Highway

A Tesla Model 3 in Autopilot mode while traveling along Taiwan’s National Highway 1 apparently failed to detect an overturned truck until it was too late, breaking at the last moment before crashing right into the top of it like the Kool-Aid Man. Some more details while I wonder how much longer I’ve got until somebody runs me over in Autopilot:

“The Fourth Highway Police Brigade said that driving Tesla was a 53-year-old man named Huang, who claimed to have turned on the vehicle assist system at the time. It was thought that the vehicle would detect an obstacle and slow down or stop, but the car still moved at a fixed speed, so when the brakes were to be applied at the last moment, it would be too late to cause a disaster.”

It’s crazy how much people trust features like this. Like this is your life and the lives of the motorists around you at stake and you’re taking a nap or playing on your phone because you’ve got a false sense of safety and security. And just look where it got this guy. “Side view mirror deep into a box truck.” Exactly.

Keep going for two different angles of the accident, as well as a shot of the Tesla afterwards that appears to indicate the truck was carrying a load of secret sauce.

Do What You Love: Man Provides In-Depth Reviews Of Video Game Bathrooms

These are three videos from Youtuber Curious Reviewers providing humorous in-depth analysis and review of video game bathrooms. His commentary is pretty insightful, like this excerpt for tthe gif above:

I felt authentic showers of Heavy Rain, I’ve been on the toilet in Beyond Two Souls, I was even able to acquire a shower in Sonic Adventures, using the shower for countless hours as Tails kept me company, enhancing the experience.

His voice is so soothing, I almost felt like I was taking a shower in his words. I’m not even sure what that means, I’m really just waiting for some pervert in the comments to let us know how difficult a fap these videos proved. “Pfft, 3 out of 10 tops.” Dammit, not you too.

Keep going for three (yes, three!) videos of video game bathroom tours.

Young Leonard Nemoy Deepfaked As Young Spock In 2009 Star Trek Reboot

This is a video of a young Leonard Nimoy deepfaked as young Spock (originally portrayed by Zachary Quinto) in the 2008 Star Trek reboot, and talking to his older self. Ha, I talk to my older self all the time, even though Doc Brown is always insisting I shouldn’t for fear of creating a time paradox that sets off a chain reaction that unravels the very fabric of the space-time continuum and destroys the universe. That guy’s an idiot. “Doc Brown?” No, older me. He doesn’t even bring me winning lotto numbers.

Yikes: Disney's Alternative Baby Yoda Designs For The Mandalorian

baby-yoda-concept-art-1.jpg

This is a small series of concept art created by Disney artists while The Child was being developed for The Mandalorian. As you can see, they definitely chose the best option, and whoever designed the one above should have been fired on the spot and had their handns broken so they can never draw again.

Oh, Internet: 22 Giant Teddy Bears Riding A Roller Coaster Look Alive

This is a video of 22 giant teddy bears riding the UNTAMED (I bet I could tame it easy) roller coaster at the Walibi Amusement Park in The Netherlands to celebrate it’s reopening, and looking very human in the process. Are there actually people inside? Not unless those bears ate them! LOL. But seriously maybe, bears are nuts. Now point me to the carnival games, I’m gonna win one of those giant mammer jammers by catapulting a rubber frog onto a lily pad.

Keep going for the video.

Whee!: Little Bird Rolling And Riding Basketball

This is a video of a little bird (any of you birdwatchers or ornithologists want to identify it?) purposefully rolling a basketball around somebody’s patio and repeatedly trying to ride on top of it. How about that! So, the next time somebody tries to tell you birds aren’t people you can show them this video and tell them “No shit, but they’re still a lot smarter than you are.’ Then grab a weapon and prepare to fight!

Colin Furze Riding Back To The Future II Hoverboard Wearing Arm-Mounted Jetpacks

This is a video of inventor Colin Furze taping a Back To The Future II replica hoverboard to his feet while using Gravity’s arm-mounted jetpack system to actually hover. I mean it’s cool, but if you’d told me in 1989 this would be the closest we’d get to actual hoverboards by the year 2020, there’s no question I would have left for Neverland with Peter Pan when he offered.

Keep going for the video, actual hoverboarding begins around 6:00.

Getting Low: Jet Testing Minimum Catapult Launch Power Needed For Takeoff From Aircraft Carrier

/a>

These are two different videos of a F-35C pilot testing the minimum catapult launch power required for a successful takeoff from an aircraft carrier and almost getting the plane’s toes wet in the process. I thought it was going into the drink, I really did. Some more info while I continue to lie to myself that I could have made it in Top Gun:

Something you don’t see everyday…low energy catapult launch! That sink is scary, but it was a part of the test plan. The folks at PAX River needed to find the lowest amount of energy that the catapult needed in order to safely launch an F-35C…they definitely found it! Through a smart build up and mitigation the test professionals go where others don’t.

Watch the waters part because of the engine exhaust!! You can tell from this angle that the aircraft got close to the water. Remember though, this was a part of the testing and the team had prepared for this moment.

Good Lord. “Well no wonder it dipped so low, that pilot’s balls must be gigantic!” Hey now I’m pretty sure that was sexist, I mean what if this was a female pilot? “I’m surprised her tits fit in the cockpit!” Wow, I’m not sure if that’s better or worse but I’ll definitely be Zooming your parents after class for a behavioral meeting regardless.

Keep going for the videos, including one from below the deck where you can really see how close it gets to the water.

It's Gonna Blow!: Throw Pillow That Looks Like An Expanded Lithium-Ion Battery

lithium-ion-battery-pillow.jpg

This is the throw pillow available from snwball’s Redbubble store that looks like a lithium-ion battery that’s expanded and ready to blow. Available in a variety of sizes from 16″ x 16″ to 26″ x 26″, it can be purchased as a cover only or with pillow insert, and prices range from $22 to $55. I’m going to get a couple for my couch and wait for my roommate to see them. “The same roommate who had a lithium-ion battery explode on him and now can’t even text without flinching?” I bet he runs screaming.

Thanks to Kent, who agrees smoke should come out when you squeeze it.

Engineer Constructing An Ultra-Tiny Marble Machine

This is a video of engineer and Youtuber Daniel de Bruin constructing a tiny marble machine from scratch that’s only big enough for a little ball bearing to ride. Obviously, this is the perfect unit to own in the event a marble machine loving friend of yours goes to prison, because you could easily sneak this into them in that ass of yours. “Excuse me?” Here, why don’t you take this Newton’s Cradle too?

The Mat Hatterpillar, A Caterpillar That Wears Its Previously Shed Heads Like A Stack Of Hats

the-mad-hatterpillar.jpg

In it may be time for another Mother Nature intervention news, this is a short video from scientist Steve Mould highlighting the life of the the gum-leaf skeletoniser (Uraba lugens), a moth that while in caterpillar form wears all of its previously shed exoskeletal heads in a stack on its current head. Per Wikipedia while I crack open a Friday brunch beer:

Uraba lugens is nicknamed the mad hatterpillar because of its distinctive exoskeletal feature. Every time it sheds the head portion of its exoskeleton, the exoskeleton stays attached to its body. Over time, developing through its life span, the head grows bigger and sheds increasingly larger exoskeleton shells, which build upon each other.

Crazy, right? “Totally nuts.” Mother Nature is a TRIP. Like how does she even come up with this stuff — watching horror movies? You know she actually invited me over for movie night a couple weekends ago but I declined because I figured she was just gonna play the popcorn trick on me again. “Wait — again?” I’m not sure what I touched the first four times, but it wasn’t unpopped kernels.

Keep going for the video.

Good Heavens: The Beatles' 'Eleanor Rigby' With All Notes Either E Or F

beatles-eleanor-rigby-e-and-f.jpg

This is The Beatles’ 1966 classic ‘Eleanor Rigby’ but with all notes either E or F. It sounds the way you’d expect a song to sound like when you’re on drugs. Wait *violently swipes bowl of cereal off kitchen table* did somebody drug me?! Honey how could you?! “It was easy, I just opened the bottle and poured it over your cereal when you were getting a spoon.” What have you done! “Relax, it was just an anti-diarrheal.” Oh so you heard that, huh? You’re so good to me.

Keep going for the song as well as a 2015 remaster for reference.

Womp Womp: Farmer Knocks Over All His Fresh Produce, Throws Tantrum

farmer-knocks-over-produce.jpg

This is a recording of a computer screen playing some security cam footage (my favorite kind of video) of a farmer moving some produce with a forklift when he sets off a domino effect of falling boxes. The rest is a hat-stomping cartoon style temper tantrum. Clearly, somebody needs to give baby his bottle. And by baby I mean Old MacDonald here, and by bottle I mean Jim Beam. Let’s get him drunk and roll him down a hill.
