This is the greatest action scene of all time. It has it all. Not only are all the components there, but the Indian dubbed over in Russian is the icing on the cake. Someone show the Wachowski brothers. This is how it’s really done.
Keep reading for rib cage mortar shells, night surfing and the snake shaker.
8 Bit Funding sounds like a great idea. A new way to raise money for independent game funding. With great games like Magicka coming out, there must be more money out there for indie studios.
Is this interesting, funny or shameful? Who knows, but it is the Duke Nukem Forever trailer. You have to respect what Gearbox has done thus far with what must have been a disaster of a half made game they inherited.
These boys are serious about their Gran Turismo 5. Respect. He even has a navigator reading the upcoming turn directions to him.
I have brought great shame to my family
My Virtual Girlfriend is clearly the creepiest game yet. I don’t care about any of those Rapelay simulators or Catherine or whatever. This is a new low. Mostly because it’s not just marketed in Japan, where everybody is a pervert.
The real Battlestar Galactica won't stand for any of this knockoff shit. Launch the alert fighters!
The Battlestar Galactica game, the game everybody has been waiting for. Sadly, it looks like a bag of shit. I guess the music is still good – always looking for the silver lining.
Dad, some advice: skip the Britney Spears songs on Just Dance when we have the video running.
Creating a pop song in 8 hours. I’d say this was impressive, but there are lots of songs that I hope were made in 8 hours of less.
British marines testing some rocket launcher thing. Imagine if they had these things in WW2 it would have been a bloodbath. Impressive accuracy.
Senator Alesi is actually the biggest douche in the world. You’re off the hook, Joementum.
Chinese have no regard for human life. That’s the only conclusion I can come to after reading about these temple hikes. I guess they do have an overpopulation problem. But wait! A new contender appears in another country!
The grocery store? Yeah, you just walk up the death hill. Why's it called that? No reason.
It’s impressive what you can do with home video equipment these days. This is like the example for today of that plane landing on the highway clip from a decade ago. Lazy Teenage Superheroes.
Chrome really puts a lot of thought into what happens when you close a tab. Too bad all programs don’t put in this kind of effort.
An X-ray from the Vietnam war of a guy who was hit by a mortar shell that didn’t explode and instead was lodged in his rib cage. Careful taking that out, Doc.
If you have a safe to crack, this is the thing for you. I wonder what they’d say if I wheeled this thing down to the bank? Don’t worry about me officer, nothing to see here.
Some medieval robber baron from the 15th century had this crazy mountain castle. Must have been epic in a siege, at least if you couldn’t get on the cliff above.
The upside of being a robber baron is the pimpin' style. I guess technically these guys aren't medieval. Or they're way ahead of their time. I hope there are robber baron reunions
Glow in the dark night surfing. This is possibly the most dangerous surfing you can do. Even that guy who rode on the back of the Great White was safer than this guy.
Need to save some time? Check out the video anthology of time saving tips.
Reinventing a text passage. I think it would have been equally acceptable if the guy had just responded with a jumble of nonsensical letters. Maybe they wouldn’t have made it into such a big deal, but hey, no great artist is understood in their time.
The Blade Runner, Oscar Pistorius, loses his first race. Take that cheater.
The secret of filming the car chase scene in Bullitt. Also Steve McQueen sounds like a douche.
A solo Egyptian protester takes on the water cannon truck. I guess he didn’t really do any damage to it, but if I were him I would consider this a victory.
Weird dead spot on the court during the Australian Open. I don’t know what the court is made of for this to be possible. Clearly there is some support structure or spring system or something beneath and it’s not concrete. Rubber support to the court maybe.
Dueling cellos play Smooth Criminal. I love the caption to this one as well – this is the only time on earth people care about the cello.
Whole plane parachutes. I can’t understand why they don’t have these on commercial jetliners. Who cares that there’s almost never a problem and they’re probably not useful at 35,000 feet. Whatever happened to quintuple redundancy!
You're doing it wrong. The plane has to be in the air first
Turn your room into a castle, with a drawbridge and everything. And hot oil. 9 dead.
This guy puts in quite a lot of effort to his gun holster reviews. I guess this is a good one.
I don’t even like dogs and I thought this was a pretty good little list.
Making art in Microsoft Paint is hard enough, but Excel? Impressive … now let’s see you make an artistic pivot table.
Train that lays its own track. I think Skynet has found its vehicle of choice.
The best possible workout: the snake shaker. Break it down. Euro training!
This is the best way to start your comedy performance. The rest of the routine isn’t bad, either, but it’s hard to top the intro.
I would have gotten away with it if it wasn’t for those meddlesome kids!
Kermit, are you sure you really want to know?
How many nervous breakdowns have you had Kermit since finding out? One ... two ... three!!! Hah hah hah
The original cut of the new iPhone 4 commercial. You know, before they put in the digital overlays of what’s happening onscreen.
This is a clever baby. Except they don’t show the next take when he badly misses and turns into a fine slurry.
More stuffed things from the Hyperbole and a Half blog. I like the look on its face. It’s soothing.
Woody Allen has the next life thing down. Maybe next time he won’t be as creepy and marry his granddaughter Morgan Freeman style. I guess Morgan Freeman went Woody Allen style. I’m sure I have some details wrong.
I have brought great shame to my family
See! Your foolish privacy settings aren’t doing anything on Facebook. I can see everything. EVERYTHING!
White people rapping poorly. This is the name of the blog. I don’t think I have to extrapolate.
The anatomy of Gamera and his foes. I wonder when we got them on the autopsy table.
Jan Hammer rocks the keytar! Check out the Miami Vice theme song music video as well. They say everything’s cyclical. I just hope I live to the year when the keytar makes its triumphant return.
I wanna rock
8 half court shots in one minute: a new world record. I have to admit, it was an exciting ending. Still – this is nearly as bad as cup stacking as far as world records go.
Imagine how many times they tried to do this before it was successful? Even though I consider myself a mini golf aficionado this is only fairly impressive.
That’s all for this week. Did I miss anything? Hit up the comments!
