Impressive!: Man's Beer Can Crushing Stomp Dance

October 19, 2017

"Alright, it is recording now."

This is a video of total stud Jim 'The Can Man' Anderson quickly crushing a long line of aluminum cans in front of the Pure Ice Company in Yankton, South Dakota (which looks like a great place to have a few cold one outside with your buddies) with what appears to be some sort of can-stomping dance he's developed. He's as graceful as a ballerina. *laying tux out on bed* Call me if you need a dancing partner, we could make a small fortune in recycling.

Keep going for the video while I go practice outside.

Baby Gets Emotional After Hearing Mother's Voice For The First Time

October 19, 2017

baby-hears-mothers-voice.jpg

This is a short and sweet video of a baby hearing her mother's voice for the first time after receiving hearing aids to help combat her bilateral profound congenital hearing loss. It looks and sounds like they both get a little emotional. And, judging from all the sobbing I hear around me, I'm guessing so did everyone in the office I sent this to. You know, I still remember the first time I heard my mothers's voice. She was yelling at me from the bottom of the stairs to clean my room. "That was this morning." I have a bad memory.

Vault Boy Approved: Fallout Inspired Tiki Mugs

October 19, 2017

fallout-tiki-mugs-1.jpg

These are the Fallout inspired tiki mugs created by Geeki Tiki and available as a four-piece set from ThinkGeek for $60. The set includes a deathclaw, suit of power armor, Vault Boy and Dogmeat (who looks a lot like Scooby-Doo). Still, I'm more than a little disappointed there isn't a Yes Man from Fallout: New Vegas or a super mutant, but what are you gonna do? "Write an angry email." Exactly. So far I've got 'Now listen here you jerks!'

Keep going for a couple more shots.

Guy Falls Off His ATV, It Takes The Opportunity To Throw Itself Off A Cliff

October 19, 2017

atv-runaway.jpg

Similar but completely different than this ATV sacrifice, this is a video of a guy riding his ATV on a mountain trail when he loses control and falls off. His ride then takes the opportunity to throw itself off a cliff. No word if it actually made it all the way down to the ocean, but at least in my mind it's living the life it's always dreamed of being a merman now. You do you, ATV.

So, We've Come To This: A $290 Toilet Plunger

October 19, 2017

expensive-plunger-1.jpg

This is the $290 (marked down from $350) American Master Plunger designed and crafted by the Re Made Company of New York City. It unclogs toilets after you try to flush too much toilet paper at once because suicide hot wings. Alternatively, use a regular $4 plunger. The plunger I use I actually bought from the 99¢ store and it works fine. That reminds me -- a friend of mine used to live in a house that had carpet in the downstairs bathroom and one time the toilet backed up and soaked the carpet with shit water and he called me to come over and help remedy the situation, which I did with a gallon of gasoline and a lighter.

Keep going for one more shot and a weird video while I speculate why anybody with the money to spend on a $290 plunger would ever plunge their own toilet anyways.

Artist Chainsaws Tree Stump Into Bucket Pouring Water

October 19, 2017

stump-sculpture-1.jpg

This is the tree stump that 42-year old Romanian wood sculptor Gabi Rizea cleverly carved into a bucket pouring water. Or maybe it's pouring paint, I can't really tell. Apparently Gabi was given permission by the local authorities to transform any stumps in local parks into works of art and, amazingly, hasn't sculpted a single penis yet. *shivers* The willpower that must have taken.

Keep going for a couple more shots of the process.

Special Edition 'Fahrenheit 451' Can Only Be Read After Heat Is Applied To The Pages

October 19, 2017

heat-sensitive-book.jpg

Seen here demonstrating how to burn your finger with a lighter, this a video of a prototype for a special edition of Ray Bradbury's 'Fahrenheit 451' (about a dystopian future where books are outlawed and 'firemen' burn any discovered) that has entirely black pages until heat is applied, at which point it becomes readable. In this case, heat is applied using a lighter, but I assume you might be able to use a blow dryer instead for a more convenient reading experience. For an even MORE convenient experience? Just read a traditional copy. For the MOST convenient experience? Listen to it book-on-tape style -- you don't even have to open your eyes. Still, this version does seem practical for anyone planning on spending eternal damnation in hell, where it'll always be hot enough to read. Plus you can use the glowing red-hot coal the devil makes you keep in your anus as a book light.

Keep going for the video demonstration.
