This is a video of general surgery resident Annie Onishi reviewing 49 different medical scenes from various movies and television shows for accuracy/realism. SPOILER: Basically everything you've ever seen is wrong. It's almost like real doctors didn't write any of this stuff. Does Hollywood not care they're perpetuating unrealistic medical scenarios? I mean, they have a responsibility to be accurate, don't they? I'm just saying, if I ever find myself in an emergency medical situation what I've seen in movies and television shows is definitely all I have to go on.
Because things stopped making sense a long, long time ago, these are the Finger Hands for Finger Hands (available in light and dark skin tones, $5 for 10) from Archie McPhee. They're even tinier finger hands that fit on top of Archie McPhee's previously released finger hands ($10 for 10). These are truly exciting times we're living in. "What are you doing?" Nothing -- nothing. "Don't do it, GW." You can't stop me! *dives for big red button*
This is the $160 officially licensed Scrabble mechanical keyboard (with Cherry MX Brown switches) available for preorder from crowdfunding site Massdrop. The keyboard is the brainchild of Cassidy Williams, who was apparently able to secure the licensing rights from Hasbro "after relentless cold-calling." PERSEVERANCE.
if you've got a mechanical keyboard kicking around that you'd like to convert, you can get the $47 keycap set instead
for an additional $40, they'll include a Scrabble tile-bag loaded with 100 keycaps to match a standard Scrabble set, so you can play an actual game with keycaps.
Cool, but I really want a keyboard with keys that look like all the buttons on my microwave. Obviously, the popcorn button would be the enter key. Man, more computers should have popcorn buttons. AND a call flight attendant button.
I used to love playing Scrabble, but that was before I realized my parents were letting me get away with playing words that aren't really words. Now I try playing with a friend and they're all, "Zerbert isn't a real word." And then what am I supposed to do? "Play a different word." Exactly, fight the to the death for my honor.
Thanks to Lydia, who agrees it's only a matter of time until the Word With Friends keyboard.
These are two videos from a ski resort in Georgia (the country, not the state) of a ski lift malfunctioning and proceeding to go double speed in reverse while launching and dumping skiers at the bottom of the hill before the chairs start piling up. Surprisingly, nobody was seriously injured. Unsurprisingly, everyone agreed they're never skiing again.
This is a short video of a Cadillac spotted in Houston, Texas with wire rims protruding further than a foot out from each of its wheels. It's a perfect example of how to do it completely wrong. Although, I don't have much room to talk, I rock spokey dokes on all my rims and a baseball card between the spokes of my back wheel. "You're talking about your bike." No, I'm talking about my Ferrari. Of course my bike I've never even had a driver's license, but only because I refused to take my mask off for the photo. "Plus you failed the driving test." That creek came out of nowhere.
This is a video of a pitch from season 8 episode 23 of Shark Tank in which inventors Billy Thompson and Randy Choi try to sell the sharks on a sweat-proof t-shirt for working out, but with all the dialogue removed by Youtuber No Dialogue (everybody needs a hobby) so it's just awkward reactions (I know all those looks all too well). The sharks don't seem too impressed (sharks don't sweat anyways, silly!), but I personally really could use a sweat-proof shirt because I sweat like -- what's the expression? "The fat turd that you are." I'm lucky I'm going to see my therapist this afternoon.
This is a video of Twitter user AdamBroud's friend Stevie belting out what can only be be described as a painfully unmelodious song about being the only one on her Chicago 'L' subway car, until about forty seconds in when she realizes she isn't. Still, it's pretty clear the other guy in the car was wearing headphones and listening to his own music because his head never exploded.

These are several videos of David Aguilar, who was born with an underdeveloped right arm, demonstrating the prosthetic replacement he built out of LEGO parts. He's spent the last decade refining the design, and even uses the arm while DJing under the name 'Hand Solo'. I get it, like the Star Trek character! "Star Wars." Like the Star Wars character!
Ever since he was a kid, David Aguilar was obsessed with Lego. He spent his childhood building cars, planes, helicopters, and eventually, his own prosthetic. Born with a deformed arm, the self-named "Hand Solo" decided to take his Lego-building skills to the next level. At age 18, he perfected his designs with the MK2, a prosthetic arm with the ability to bend and pick up objects with a pincer-like grip.
Good looking, David, you've clearly got a bright future ahead of you (PROTIP: wear sunglasses). Also, a related question: where do LEGO bricks fit in as a building material on the scale of The Three Little Pigs? "Between the second and third pigs, but closer to the third." Cool, that's what I thought.
Keep going for a Great Big Story video, as well as two others posted by David: his first model, and his new MK2 design.
