Sure, Why Not?: A Beer Koozie That Looks Like A Red Solo Cup

November 14, 2018

red-solo-cup-koozie.jpg

Seen here modeling his finest chick-attracting plaid, a man holds a $10 beer koozie that looks like a red Solo cup. Obviously, i's perfect for blending in at a raging kegger while you sip a La Croix can. That's what I do when I'm DD (except with orange or grape soda). Besides, I don't even like keg beer, I only like bottles and cans and draft. "Where do you think draft beer comes from?" Tubes. "And where do you think those tubes go?" All the way back to the brewery, obviously.

Thanks to Greg C, who reminds us all to drink responsibly, but live at least a little recklessly when you're not having any cold ones.

Slicing Through Rainbow Jell-O With A Tennis Racquet In Ultra Slow-Motion

November 14, 2018

rainbow-jello-slow-motion-racqueting.jpg

Improving on their 2,500 frames/second Jell-O racqueting video from a few years ago, this is a new segment from the Slow Mo Guys of them slicing through blobs of rainbow colored Jell-O with a tennis racquet, filmed at 12,000 frames/second. That is almost five times slower motion. The maths: I did them on the back of the label I just peeled off my beer. Besides being about six minutes too long, I thought the video was pretty cool to watch, although, just like the time I caught a glimpse of my best friend's penis, it's really only something I need to see once.

Keep going for the video.

Star Wars And Marvel Character Coffee Mugs With Arm Handles

November 14, 2018

meta-mugs-1.jpg

These are the $13 Star Wars and Marvel Meta Mugs available from Firebox. Each mug looks like a specific character (Darth Vader, C-3PO, a stormtrooper, Spider Man, The Hulk, Iron Man, Black Panther and Thor), has an all-around design (including their backs) and features their arm as the handle. Obviously, they look just the right mix of stupid and awesome for a purchase and a life split between a cabinet in the office break room and my desk. Unfortunately, the product description doesn't say how many many ounces they hold, but I'm guessing 128. I'm also a terrible guesser. "How many jelly beans are in this jar?" Zero, I guess they're Skittles.

Keep going for a shot of some of the Marvel ones.

Video Of A Ferrari Formula 1 Car Getting A 1.97-Second Four Tire Change Pit Stop

November 14, 2018

This is a video of the top three pit stops from the 2018 Brazilian Grand Prix, including a 1.97-second four tire change on Sebastian Vittel's number 5 Ferrari. Now that's fast. For reference, the last time I got a flat it took me 10 minutes just to find the spare, then another 30 minutes of my girlfriend telling me I'm putting it on wrong before stepping away to call AAA behind my back. "He was trying to put it on backwards." Haha, she's kidding. "I wish I was." Come on, I don't go airing your dirty laundry all over Geekologie -- BUT MAYBE I'LL START. *digging through hamper* Haha, what's this?! "It's called a bra." *drapes over head like a giant eyepatch* Shiver me timbers!

Keep going for the whole video including two fast but not as fast pit stops from other teams.

Toy Story 4 Gets A Teaser Trailer

November 14, 2018

toy-story-4-teaser-trailer.jpg

This is the teaser trailer for Toy Story 4, set to Joni Mitchell's 'Both Sides Now'. Now I know what you're thinking, and I agree, didn't they already make us cry hard enough watching Toy Story 3? Geez, give it a rest, Pixar, I'm already chronically dehydrated.

Woody has always been confident about his place in the world and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that's Andy or Bonnie. But when Bonnie adds a reluctant new toy called "Forky" to her room, a road trip adventure alongside old and new friends will show Woody how big the world can be for a toy.

From what I gathered from the very unspoiling trailer, Forky appears to be a makeshift toy crafted out of a plastic spork with pipe cleaner arms, popsicle stick feet (attached with gum), and googly eyes. Obviously, this film will probably focus on the importance of recycling and reducing our plastic waste.

UPDATE: Added another teaser introducing Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele's new characters, Duck and Bunny.

Keep going for the trailer, which really isn't much but the toys holding hands and not singing kumbaya.

Kid Accidentally Breaks Fall Of Friend Who Slipped From Third Story Balcony, Both Walk Away Without Injury

November 14, 2018

This is a short video of an 11-year old boy in Pusad, Maharashtra, India who climbed onto the third story balcony of a building to retrieve a kite and falls over the balcony after dropping it down. Miraculously, his friend had bent over to pick up the kite at that exact moment, breaking his fall. Both walked away without injury. Talk about being at the right place at the right time. Knowing my luck there wouldn't have been a friend there, and I would have fallen straight into a spike pit like at the bottom of that one Mortal Kombat level.

Keep going for the whole video of a video, but the gif is pretty much it.

Sorcery: Guy Produces Black Fire That Casts A Shadow

November 14, 2018

This is a video of Youtuber The Action Lab producing a black fire that casts a shadow by exposing an alcohol flame to salt water that's all being illuminated by a low pressure sodium lamp that only emits light in a very tiny wavelength range of monochromatic yellow. *breathing heavy* It works because the sodium atoms being released from the salt water absorb the wavelength of yellow light from the lamp, making the fire appear black. Of course, using the scientific method, we also can't rule out the possibility of black magic. Which is of course 100% what this is, since it is a black flame and all. I've seen Hocus Pocus before.

Keep going for the video, actual black flame around 4:00.

Classic: The Old 'Sit In This Excavator Bucket' Dump In Lake Prank

November 14, 2018

excavator-bucket-prank.jpg

This is a video from Lagoa Seca, Paraiba, Brazil of a guy getting tricked into sit in an excavator's bucket, then immediately being dumped in a fishing lake. Not tenderly dumped either -- it's a harsh dump. What could they have possibly told him to convince him to sit in there? What did he think was gonna happen? Who falls for that? "Don't act like you've never been tricked into sitting in an excavator bucket before." Man, there never any gold.

Keep going for the video, but skip to 0:40 for the action.
