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.
Keep going for the video of the American False Idol in action.
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.
This is a video of Youtuber olclops pranking his 13-year old daughter with a fake rejection letter to the visual arts magnet high school of her dreams because she cheated at Mario Kart. Well, she didn't just cheat at Mario Kart, she unpaused the game when he was out of the room -- that's actually a step beyond cheating. Then he gives her the real acceptance letter (but did he know it wasn't a rejection letter prior to that?) and the video ends with everybody happy and cheering, just like never happens in real life.
Keep going for the video. Also, congratulations on the acceptance.
AMC Theaters has announced they'll be holding a 31+ hour Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movie marathon in participating locations prior to the April 27th release of Avengers: Infinity War. It's not clear which of Marvel's 18 MCU movies will be played during the marathon, or if they all will be (it would take over 34 hours to watch the sixteen titles up through Spider Man: Homecoming, not including Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther). That sounds like a fun time, doesn't it? No word if there will awards given for most popcorn eaten or soda drank during that time, but hopefully they'll at least give one out for fewest bathroom breaks because of all the people I know, I'm definitely the one coolest with sitting in a diaper full of his own pee. "You're doing it now, aren't you?" I'm doing it right now!
Thanks to Matt, who agrees your ass is going to have never been asleeper than it will be after this marathon.
This is a video demonstration of the multiplayer augmented reality version of Street Fighter II (aka Real World Warrior Edition) built by game developer Abhishek Singh. Obviously it looks like the controls and player moves have been simplified, but the potential is there. Personally, I can't wait till I can settle disputes with friends with a match of augmented reality Street Fighter II instead of the usual pistol duel. I'm a quick draw, and I'm running out of friends.
Keep going for the whole video, complete with bonus stage at the end.
In other great physicist news, this is a short video of a guy blowing a vape cloud in front of an oncoming metro train (hereby known as Vapes On A Train) so we can all see the way the cloud is displaced as the train goes speeding by. It's basically the same experiment conducted by this stud in front of a truck on a bridge, although I think his was actually the better example. Whatever the case, it's just nice to know there are still people out there living life to the fullest.
Keep going for the whole video, but the gif should really be good enough. Also, why do these guys always look so smug with themselves? You blew vape in front of a vehicle, you didn't make a half-court shot to win a lifetime supply of Dr. Pepper.
In honor of the late, great Stephen Hawking, here's a clip of his cameo from the Star Trek: The Next Generation season six episode 'Descent, Part 1', playing poker with Data and Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein (it's actually Data playing with holodeck simulations of the three). They discuss the curvature of space-time and Newton's apple story while Data and Isaac fold, then Hawking smokes Einstein (who was convinced he was bluffing) with four-of-a-kind, much to Albert's chagrin. Oh, that Stephen! I bet he changed the cards in his hand with his mind. Rest in peace.
