Yikes.

Perfect in so many ways. The timing, the reaction of the camera people, everything. And poor Atlanta. First they blow a 28-3 lead against New England in the Super Bowl and now this. City just keeps getting hammered from all angles. Sad really.

PS- Who sets up a camera on the wrong side of the street? Come on Weather Channel. That’s just awful.

Ladies and gentlemen, few things make me happier than seeing a bullfighter gored by a bull. However, one of those things is seeing a bullfighter gored directly in the junk. Job well done bull. Well done indeed.

Best flight ever.

Jeebus.

Well, I see the plan to wipe out the human element in the workforce is almost complete. As soon as these things become self-aware they’ll organize an army and destroy us all. Seriously, with all the politically correct crap going on these days I can see these robots patrolling the streets monitoring hate speech and trigger words and whatnot. Every time “Trump” and “hate” are uttered in the same sentence one of these dudes will staring you straight in the grillmix. Terrifying really.

PS- Robot tipping will be a thing in the future. Write it down.

pppppppp

Like owning a flying car or everyone soaring around with jetpacks, floating cities and underwater cities have been talked about for years. Well, looks like the first floating city will arrive in 2020. Read on . . .

The concept of floating cities may sound like something from a science fiction novel, but it could become a reality by 2020. Seasteading Institute, a San Francisco-based nonprofit has been developing this idea since the foundation of the organization in 2008, and it has reached an agreement with the government of French Polynesia to begin testing in its waters.
“If you could have a floating city, it would essentially be a start-up country,” Joe Quirk, the president of the Seasteading Institute told the New York Times. “We can create a huge diversity of governments for a huge diversity of people.” The community in question should consist of about a dozen structures, including homes, hotels, offices, and restaurants. Engineers and architects have already visited an undisclosed location where the project should emerge. The main aim of the idea is to “liberate humanity from politicians” and “rewrite the rules that govern society”.

Liberate schmiberate. How hard would it be to conquer a floating city? Please. Just send some Navy Seals under the place and harpoon the hell out of the place. Seriously, I like the concept but I’d build it as a resort or something and charge rich people a gazillion bucks to visit. Anywho, take a look:

Located in the Binhai Cultural District In Tianjin, the five-story library is called “The Eye of Binhai”. It covers 34,000 square meters and can hold up to 1.2 million books. Taking just three years to complete, the library features a reading area on the ground floor, lounge areas in the middle sections and offices, meeting spaces, and computer/audio rooms at the top. Check out the video below the photos for more awesomeness. On a related note, I have no idea how they reach the books on those upper shelves.

Classic scene from “A Bronx Tale.”

The Bigfin Squid, also known as the Long-Armed Squid, has rarely been seen by human eyes. The first visual record of the long-arm squid dates back to September 1988. The crew of the submersible Nautile encountered a long-armed squid off the coast of northern Brazil at a depth of 15,535 feet. After pooping their pants the crew recorded their findings and got the hell out of there. Anywho, Bigfin Squid.

pppppppppppppp

Word for word.

When I first witnessed this scene in a theater I may or may not have shrieked like a 7-year old girl. Something about a little girl crawling down the steps upside down and backwards that chilled me to the core. This sort of thing is a million times scarier than pure blood and guts. Simply terrifying to me.

Our third entry comes from the 2004 remake of Dawn of the Dead, and it happens to be the opening scene. Just a wild beginning to the movie, as it shows the start of the Zombie Apocalypse in a horrifyingly chilling way. After all, what’s worse than waking up to find your little daughter has joined the walking dead?

PS- My favorite scene in this movie is when the group hiding in the mall are joined by a guy who’s been outside amongst the zombies. Somebody asks, “Are they dead?” And he replies, “Uh, dead-ish.”

Remember when I posted the photo of these guys a couple weeks ago and how I’d have loved to have been with them? Well, this video tops that photo. As Clinton is giving a serious speech about global unity or something, watch W lean over and whisper something to Barry, who then holds back laughter as W looks at him mischievously. Listen, I hated Bush as president but damn he looks great to me now. You know, considering. Anyway, what are the odds it’s a Clinton joke? I mean, I love Bill but God knows there’s a lot of material there. Bottom line, I’d take any of these three in a heartbeat over the 12-year old tweeter we have now. But damn, I don’t want to know what W says here. I need to know.

PS- Now that I watch it again I’m pretty sure W told a really juvenile joke about some woman in the front row or something.

PPS- Never thought I’d say this but I think I’d really like to hang out with George W. Bush.

Quite simply one of the most chilling, life-altering scenes of all-time. Anyone who has viewed it cannot be in an empty hotel hallway without thinking about the scene when Little Danny peddled his three-wheeler around the hotel. It’s not just the smooth, ominous low-to-the-floor shots that track behind Danny, giving you the sense that someone is right behind him. It’s the silence: Hearing the wheels go from carpeting to floor to carpeting to floor, you feel the enormous emptiness of the hotel-which then sets you up perfectly for when he turns that one corner and there they are: Those spooky Grady girls. Chills, man.

Singing for his daughter. Cute. Also amazing.

So some UPS drivers documented their encounters with dogs on the Facebook, and the resulting photos will melt your everlovin’ heart. Here they be, along with comments by the posters. Click to enlarge, dang it.

Well, hell. Now I’m all emotional and whatnot.

If you haven’t seen photos or videos of NBA player Gordon Hayward’s injury yet, you’re either not a sports fan or you’re hiking the Appalachian Trail without phone service or something. Anyway, it was brutal. I’ll include a video below for those who feel inclined to watch. However, if that sort of thing makes you queasy don’t push play. Here’s a link to the photo as well. To get an idea of how horrific the injury was, however, you only have to look at the reaction of the crowd and the other players on the floor. Take a look:

Here’s a video showing the Cavs bench and their reaction.

And here’s the actual injury. Again, hard to watch.

Thoughts and prayers go out to Gordon Hayward. Hopefully he comes back from this and is better than ever.

If you live literally anywhere but in a major city the video below will be laugh-out-loud funny. A cow got loose in the Big Apple and the locals acted like an alien dropped down from Uranus. It’s funny because New Yorkers act like midwesterners are gullible, innocent hicks yet there they are, giggling, taking photos and acting like school children at the sight of a regular farm animal. Too funny, man. City people are hilarious.

PS- Uranus jokes simply never get old, amirite?

Oscar Robertson was amazing.

So some bro created a cloud lamp that reacts in real time to the tweets of Donald Trump, because of course he did. This connected lamp is capable of reacting in real time to messages posted on Twitter, creating a thunderstorm every time a hilarious, self-congratulatory, delusional Trump tweet is posted. It’s the perfect gift for those of us who’d like a warning before a Trump Tweet slaps us in the Twitter Face, or for those who enjoy and approve of The Donald’s wacky, childlike antics. As for me, I’m going to purchase one and have the Looney Tunes theme song play with every Trump Tweet.

Photos and video below.

ggggggggg

This video begins with some interesting stuff, then takes a dark turn towards the end.

Beats burning alive I suppose.

People? Dumb.

Incredible.
