Yikes: Guy Snaps Cable On Gym Rowing Machine

December 17, 2018

This is a short video of a guy chasing gains in the form of seated cable rows when the cable snaps and he falls off the machine. Now see, this is exactly why I don't go to the gym -- it's too dangerous. "Plus you're lazy and committed to being a potato." Well sure, that too, but mostly this right here.

Keep going for the video.

What The?: Water Flowing So Smoothly It Looks Frozen

December 17, 2018

This is a video of water flowing so smoothly it appears frozen. Apparently this is known as a Laminar flow, which is characterized "by high momentum diffusion and low momentum convection." No clue what that means, but I have peed like this twice in my life.

Keep going for the whole video.

Company Testing A Fried Chicken Nugget Vending Machine

December 14, 2018

This is a short video of the fried chicken nugget vending machine currently being tested by Japanese convenience store chain Lawson Inc. at one of its Shinagawa Ward, Tokyo locations. The machine can allegedly fry and serve piping hot chicken nuggets in just over a minute. I wonder how often they change the frier oil. The less often, the better -- that's my motto. Of course I also refuse to boil my hotdogs in anything but the same covered pot of water I've had sitting on the back of the stove for four months. My girlfriend thinks it's disgusting, but-- "I've seen him make tea with it." *shrug* I was drunk and feeling extra culinary.

Keep going for a shot of the finished product and a video.

Oh Wow: Fifteen Jump Ropers Perform The 'Subway' Trick

December 14, 2018

This is a short video of fifteen jump ropers combining all their skill to perform the 'subway' trick, in which one member sort of worms his way all the way down the line underneath everyone else as they all jump double Dutch on all fours. So, do you think the person who's the worm is the one who drew the shortest straw, or is do you think that's the most desirable position? Asking for a friend who will literally talk about anything.

Keep going for the whole video, but you're not really missing much just watching the gif. And remember: you're never to old to jump rope (but hip replacement surgery does get more complicated the older you are).

Freaky Deaky: Every Online 3D Model Of Mickey Mouse 3D Printed As A Single Unit

This is a shot of the Mickey Mouse sculpture that Matthew Plummer Fernandez 3D printed using 'Every model of Mickey Mouse found online, compiled as one.' The finished product stands 51 x 24 x 49cm (~20 x 9.5 x 19-inches) and looks like a genetic experiment gone wrong. And not the good kind of wrong like 'Woops, we finally cloned a triceratops but it has penises instead of horns' either.

Thanks again to hairless, who informed me he'd pay good money for a Donald Duck version. Hahaha, you're weird.

Trust Fall!: Portly Gentleman Crushes Buddy From Chair

December 14, 2018

trust-crush.jpg

Seen here during the very lit after-hours portion of their holiday party, this is a short video of a portly gentleman trust-falling into the arms of his significantly smaller friend. Although it's really more of a trust-crush. Still, I feel like this went just about as well as they could have possibly hoped for, although based on the way he's holding himself afterwards, it appears the smaller man may have broken his penis. That's why I tape mine to my calf! "Calf?!" *wink*

Keep going for the video. Also, I like how in that first screencap he looks like Uncle Fester lighting a lightbulb in his mouth.
