Dumbass Burglar Breaks Into Completely Open Carport

June 22, 2017

breaking-into-carport.jpg

Seen here proving that maybe casing a joint prior to trying to rob it might not be such a bad idea, this is a gif (after the jump, sorry I couldn't find a video) of some dumbass burglar who rips a window panel off of a completely open carport to try to get inside. He then disappears for a moment while his brain comprehends what a stupid idiot he is, then skulks off, but not before half-assedly trying the front doorknob again. Sure he's gotta know it's still going to be locked from when he tried it 30 seconds ago, but he does it anyway, almost as if to kick himself in the nuts one last time before leaving empty-handed.

Keep going for the whole gif.

Balloon Art: Walking Dead's Daryl Dixon On Motorcycle Being Attacked By Zombies

June 22, 2017

Note: Larger version HERE in case you want to try focusing your eyes like a laser beam and pop some zombie heads.

This is the life size Daryl Dixon on motorcycle surrounded by zombies balloon art twisted up by Phileas Flash (previously: his balloon art of iconic comic book covers). That Phileas sure can twist a balloon. Me? I'm only good at twisting people's arms. Like that time I asked you to drive me to a Redbox but you were being stubborn. I finally convinced you though, didn't I? "You stole my car and crashed it into a post office." I saw a box, I got excited. "It was blue." I'm colorblind.

Keep going for a shot of Negan with Lucille (his barbed wire bat) that Phileas also made.

Smart Thinking: Kid Turns His Apartment Balcony Into Makeshift Swimming Pool

June 22, 2017

homemade-balcony-swimming-pool.jpg

This is a shot of some intrepid young adventurer who decided to turn his apartment balcony into a pool, presumably with his help of his parents, which makes it all that more terrifying. Some Redditors estimated there's approximately 5,000 pounds of water already on the balcony. Is that safe? I can't imagine that's safe. Regardless, I am going to need a ride to Home Depot to pick up some tarps this afternoon. Then to Kinkos to print out the flyers for my pool party.

Thanks to Julia, who agrees units with balcony pools should definitely rent for more money.

Self-Driving Race Car Completes First Autonomous Full Speed Lap At 124MPH

June 22, 2017

Note: Check your volume.

This is the view from a camera onboard Roboracer's Devbot self-driving race car as it completes its first full speed lap around a Forumla-E race track in Berlin at 124MPH. For reference, at speeds over 50MPH my car starts to rattle and shake pieces of itself off. Important pieces too, like the hood and steering wheel. Honestly, I should probably only be driving it to church on Sundays to pray to God it doesn't kill me.

Keep going for the video, as well as one of Roboracer's engineers discussing the feat.

The Ice Cream Burrito: Ice Cream Scoops Covered In Sprinkles, Wrapped In Cotton Candy

June 22, 2017

ice-cream-cotton-candy-burrito.jpg

This is the Ice Cream Burrito available from dessert shop Sugar Sugar in Sarnia, Ontario, Canada. It consists of three scoops of ice cream all covered in rainbow sparkle sprinkles (aka unicorn dust), then wrapped in a cotton candy 'tortilla'. Obviously, it's the perfect post-breakup meal, which is why I just stashed one in the freezer in case my girlfriend decides to leave me *gets phone call, heads straight for fridge* which was apparently two weeks ago. I just assumed she was a stewardess and traveled a lot.

Thanks, Internet!: Kid Gets Dizzy On Park's Sit 'N Spin, Can't Stand After

June 22, 2017

This is an Instagram video posted by former NFL player Chris Rainey of his son Makari spinning in a park seat, then trying to stand. He does not do very well at the standing. Man, remember when you were a kid and getting dizzy was fun? That was like our first high. Now it just reminds me of being sick or hungover. Personally, I try to avoid getting dizzy at all costs, but I am still into standing up from a toilet seat too fast and seeing stars. I do still like the stars.

Keep going for the video.

Woopsie: Helicopter Rotor Vs Side Of Building

June 22, 2017

red-bull-chopper-vs-building.jpg

Note: Keep your volume in check.

This is a short video of Red Bull's AH-1 Cobra attack helicopter (wait, what?) trying to land in Austria when the side of a building gets in the way of its rotor. All that space to land and you just had to park as close to the building as possible. You remind me of everyone at the grocery store. Also, I think this video serves as conclusive evidence that, although Redbull may give you wings, that does not make you a competent pilot.

Keep going for the video.

Guy Recreates Super Mario Bros Level 1-1 As Augmented Reality Game

June 22, 2017

augmented-reality-super-mario.jpg

This is a video of Abhishek Singh demonstrating the recreation of Super Mario Bros level 1-1 he made to play with Microsoft's Hololens augmented reality headset. Overall it looks pretty promising, although I don't remember Mario being able to just walk around all those warp pipes. It also looks like a great way for everyone around you to think you're a crazy person. Or some cyborg from the future who just landed on earth and is trying to get their bearings.

Keep going for the video demonstration, which was the actual recorded gameplay from the Hololens.
