The video below is a photographer catching fire at a wedding ceremony. Thankfully, one of the groomsmen quickly ran after her to extinguish the flames and everyone started to laugh. Because, let’s admit it, people catching alight is hilarious. Especially people with dreads. Dirty hippies.
We had a hippy in our fourth form biology class and the exact same thing happened to him but instead of dreads, he had a wiry afro before those became all the rage. When some unscrupulous fellow student lit his hair on fire, it had far more spectacular results resulting in a bald head and a hospital visit. I didn’t do it but I did laugh which makes me party to the crime I guess.
It is however well known that a) 14 year old boys are evil and b) it doesn’t pay to look different to everyone else at 14.
Anyway check out the vid below. Moral of the story: watch out for killer candles. They’re killer.
The vid below is gory in a childish type of way but by golly is it freaking addictive. Not in a meth lose-your-life-and-loved-ones kind of way, but the track does stick and you will have an hour of its catchiness ricocheting around in your head.
PROTIP: Sing it aloud a few times in the office. Not only will you get it out of your head, but you’ll also succeed in transferring it to others, much like a virus.
I don’t ever want to lose an arm. But if I do, I want it to be the left one (I’m right handed), and I want it to happen saving a whole bunch of people. Yunno, gaining hero status and replacing that chap’s face with my own on the $50 note.
Delusions of grandeur aside, this is the Bebionic3, an advanced prosthetic so refined it can actually be used to write.
From the company’s website:
The Bebionic3 is a myoelectric prosthetic hand that uses residual neuro-muscular signals from your muscles to operate a number of precise functions. Featuring a range of 14 hand positions and grips, the Bebionic3 is also offered with a skin-tone glove that approximates the appearance of a real hand.
Impressed? I freaking am. Check out the video below of amputee Nigel showing the terminator arm/Bebionic3 in action. Its pretty awesome.
Why why why can’t Ikea come to New Zealand? But they have already. No they haven’t, thats’s just a shell company peddling IKEA goods for an exorbitant mark up (Its fun to argue with myself).
Anyway, IKEA have released a fantastic new ad that really isn’t an ad, yet manages to show their range of goods oh so effectively. Also the song by ‘Masters in France’, Playing with my Friends; ain’t all that bad either. Enjoy.
If I was forced to divulge my opinion on the coolest brand in the world as of today, it would have to be Red Bull. I don’t really care for their energy drink as i think energy drinks in general are health time bombs waiting to go off, much like mad cow disease and the regular consumption of uranium, but by golly do they sponsor some freaking cool activities.
Thankfully they’ve assembled all of their sponsored pro athletes into one jam packed little session and called it the athlete machine.
And its good. So good that I’m not even sure why you’re still reading and not watching below. Enjoy.
