  • Meteor Over Finland Briefly Turns Night Into Day

    Meteor Over Finland Briefly Turns Night Into Day
    This is a video captured by Youtuber Aurora Borealis (LIVE!) while live-streaming the Northern Lights of a meteor that briefly turns the night sky as bright as day. In his own words while I imagine how pissed I'd be if that woke me up and I couldn't fall back asleep. Plus that the meteor missed my apartment.
    Huge meteor burn up. I was sat about 10 metres to the left of the camera and felt a huge shockwave. It shook the cottage. My immediate thoughts were Earthquake, but then realised, we don't get earthquakes in Lapland. It must have been a huge tree falling on the roof? Nope, all the trees are still vertical. It was when I rewind the camera I see what actually happened. This happened so fast, without warning and with such violent power. It was humbling, just how small and insignificant a man is, compared to the destructive power of the universe.
    Wait, so it happened so fast you didn't notice the light? That's crazy. I mean, unless you were drunk, then I get it -- I've missed entire hours of time before. Sometimes even a whole night. Also, how do we not know this wasn't just Santa doing a trial run before Christmas? The man needs practice. There's no way you can only do something once a year and expect to be any good at it. "Tell me about it." Honey! Keep going for the video.
  • All The Stranger Things Season 2 Episodes Reimagined As Vintage Paperback Horror Book Covers

    All The Stranger Things Season 2 Episodes Reimagined As Vintage Paperback Horror Book Covers
    stranger-things-2-books-640.jpg Note: Larger version HERE. These are all the Stranger Things season two episodes reimagined as vintage paperback horror book covers by Brazilian artist Butcher Billy. As far as things like this go, I feel like this was well executed. Maybe you disagree. I doubt it though, you and I have a connection. I bet we could finish each other's sentences all day long if we wanted to, but we don't want to because that would get annoying quick and next thing you know we're trying to beat the shit out of each other-- "On the sidewalk in front of a Burger King." That's it, COME AT ME. Thanks to Dapper Don, who's convinced Burger King and Dairy Queen once had a thing and spawned Jack In The Box.
  • Saleswomen Quickly Demonstrate A Thousand Different Ways To Wear A Magical Scarf

    Saleswomen Quickly Demonstrate A Thousand Different Ways To Wear A Magical Scarf
    These are two videos from China of saleswomen quickly demonstrating the incredible versatility of a magical scarf garment (possibly inspired by the Thneed from Dr. Seuss's The Lorax). It can be worn as a scarf, shawl, vest, hat, hood, skirt, and a bunch of things I don't even know what to call -- the possibilities are endless. Unfortunately, apparently it can't be the only thing you wear to a job interview (I went with a beanie and cape combo), or at least that's what security said when they refused to let me into the building. Whatever, I don't want to work for a company that doesn't want me to be myself anyways. Keep going for the videos.
  • Navy Admits To Wiener Drawing In The Sky Above Washington

    Navy Admits To Wiener Drawing In The Sky Above Washington
    navy-skywriting.jpg The Navy has confirmed that one of its aircrews stationed at Whidbey Island was responsible for skydrawing a crude penis above Okanogan County in Washington state. A lot of people in the area took pictures of the wiener (that must have been an awesome ride home on the school bus), and the Navy is investigating further, saying "The Navy holds its aircrew to the highest standards and we find this absolutely unacceptable, of zero training value [Editor's Note: that's debatable] and we are holding the crew accountable." Wow, so apparently this is frowned upon. Just not in my book. In my book that is ear-to-ear smiled upon and an omen of good fortune and a bountiful harvest. Keep going for a couple shots of the chemtrail member.
  • What The Hell Was That?: Puppet Teddy Bear Struggles To Serve Drinks To Customers At Japanese Restaurant

    What The Hell Was That?: Puppet Teddy Bear Struggles To Serve Drinks To Customers At Japanese Restaurant
    teddy-bear-server.jpg Note: Keep your volume in check, screaming. This is a video from a restaurant in Japan where a teddy bear tries to deliver drinks to patrons, but struggles to do so, eventually screaming and getting crushed under the weight of the tray. That...is not what I had in mind when I said I'd like to go to dinner and a show. I generally frown on screaming in restaurants. Unless it's a couple breaking up on their anniversary, in which case I want a front-row seat and if there's any VIP or backstage passes available I'm buying them. Keep going for the video.

    GJS reveals first GEIO FPS battle robot
    There is a certain degree of fascination when it comes to robots and robotics, as we continue to plunge headlong into the 21st century.
