Proof Positive: An Eight Minute Video Explaining Why Jar Jar Binks Is A Sith Lord


This is an eight minute video (text version HERE) detailing Redditor Lumpawarroo's theory that Jar Jar Binks is actually a trained Force user, a Sith master, and will have a profound impact on the upcoming Star Wars movies. Is J.J. Abrams really that determined to be hated? Lumpawarroo makes some pretty decent points. "Mesa horny." DON'T TOUCH ME, JAR JAR.

Keep going for the video, then become a believer.

There Can Be Only One: Neil DeGrasse Tyson Weighs In On Millennium Falcon Versus Starship Enterprise


This is a short video of Neil DeGrasse Tyson answering a fan's question about whether he would choose the Millennium Falcon or the Starship Enterprise, and why. SPOILER: Neil chooses the Enterprise because it has real scientists and engineers on board monitoring its vital systems. Plus he likes that it's the first sci-fi spaceship that wasn't designed to go from point A to point B (i.e. Earth to another planet), but was rather designed STRICTLY FOR EXPLORATION. Which one would you choose? I would also choose the Enterprise, but only because it's way bigger so I could probably sell it for more after I crash it into a couple planets.

Hit the jump for the wow, he really put some thought into that.

Amazon Releases Another Video Of Its Future Prime Air 30-Minute Drone Delivery Service


This is a new video from Amazon starring English broadcaster Jeremy Clarkson (of Top Gear fame) detailing the company's future Amazon Prime Air delivery service, which promises drone delivery of packages under 5-pounds in 30 minutes or less (previous video from 2013 HERE). Amazon says the service will still take some time to roll out, but will be ready to go as soon as they have "the regulatory support needed to realize our vision." I assume that vision is not me trying to shoot all my neighbors' packages out of the sky. I still can't even believe they're moving forward with this, I feel like it's going to be disaster after disaster. Still, stranger things have happened. "You got to see boobs?" Not just see, I got to touch them! They were not as mushy as I thought they'd be. Plus she said my hands were cold so it only lasted a second.

Keep going for the video, then tell Amazon the drones should also be able to pick up returns because I am genius and I came up with that. Just kidding, I'm dumb.

Tons Of Balls: Guy Mods Nerf Zeus Rifle To Hold 108 Balls


This is a video of Nerf gun lover Out Of Darts (he REALLY loves Nerf guns, and it shows) debuting his custom Zeus ball-shooting rifle, which he modified to hold 108 balls instead of the standard twelve. He uses a blower mounted on the back of the rifle to keep the balls moving towards the launching mechanism for full-auto blasting. There's also a video of the backpack mod he made which can hold up to 270 balls. That is a lot of balls. For reference, I have two balls, and one of them hurts right now because my pants are too tight and I moved my leg.

Keep going for three videos, one of this mod, one of his 3-ball burst fire mod, and one of the backpack.

Man Spends Six Years, Takes 720,000 Photos Trying To Capture This Shot Of A Diving Bird


This is the shot that Scottish photographer Alan McFadyen spent 4,200 hours and 720,000 exposures trying to capture over the span of six years. It's a female kingfisher diving for a fish, just as its beak breaks the water's surface. I'm gonna be honest, I would have tried for maybe one afternoon then just Photoshopped it. Also, I feel a lot less guilty now about all the time I spend playing video games.

Thanks to Diane, who agrees everybody needs a hobby, and for some people that hobby is sitting completely still with a camera staring at a lake hoping for a bird to dive in.

Bring It Back: Coca-Cola Renews Ecto Cooler Trademark


I collected all those Hero Caps, I really did.

Coca-Cola recently filed to renew its Ecto Cooler trademark, possibly due to the new Ghostbusters movie coming out, or possibly due to why the hell wouldn't they? If they didn't renew it, I would, and I would bring back one of the best 10% juice drinks ever made. Only mine would be brewed with drugs to get everybody hooked on it, and I would make a fortune. "The FDA would never stand for that." The FDA doesn't have to know. *winks, slides $5 bill across table." There's more where that came from. "I sure f***ing hope so." Well I was kidding, that's all I've got.

Thanks to Closet Nerd, who's allegedly been holding on to a six-pack of Ecto Cooler juice boxes for a special occasion. Mmmm, I hope it's sludgy.

Dad Attaches Leaf Blower To Son's Power Wheels Car


This is a video of Jarrad Provost's son riding around in his modified Power Wheels car. And by modified I mean Jarrad attached a leaf blower to the side so his son can clean up leaves while he ridesr around. Pretty clever. Getting work done AND having fun. It's a shame that's not how real jobs work. Now attach a rake to his sister's tricycle and you've got yourself a legitimate landscaping business.

Keep going for the video.

Germans Demonstrate Tank's Stabilized Gun With A Beer


This is a video from 1986 of Germans demonstrating the Leopard 2's fully stabilized main gun. They do so by filling a beer, setting it on top of the gun's muzzle, then speeding the tank around without spilling any beer. Most impressive. You know it's important to know where you cannon is pointed if you actually want to hit what you're aiming for. Without a stabilized gun you can hit a ditch and wind up shooting your own squad. That's like going to the bathroom and thinking you're hitting the urinal before looking down and realizing you never took your cannon out of your pants in the first place. Now your pants are soaked and the bar doesn't have a back exit. WHAT DO YOU DO? Well if you're like me or James Bond, you knock out the next guy who comes into the bathroom, take his pants (along with your own wallet, phone and keys), and don't forget to pay your bar tab before making a quick getaway.

Keep going for a short video, as well as a longer one in German.
