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.

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

August 18, 2017

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

August 18, 2017

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

August 18, 2017

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!

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

August 18, 2017


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.

Star Trek The Original Series Road Trip Sunshade

August 18, 2017

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.

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

August 18, 2017

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.
