Psychology, The Dude and the Matrix

September 16, 2010

Classical Conditioning On College Roommate, posted with vodpod It is pretty cool that classical conditioning works so easily, and seeing it expressed in such a bro-tastic way is great. On a completely different plane is this awesome mashup of The Big Lebowski and The Matrix – two defining movies of my late high school experience. […]


August 3, 2010

It has been a while since I posted – I’ve found that now that I am not working, I browse the internet less. Apparently having a job where I had nothing to do, but was forced to sit at a computer for 8 hours a day was the best thing for my blog. I am […]

Don’t Mess With Deer

June 18, 2010

At first I thought this video was going to be sweet and heartwarming, animals living in harmony. Then it got bad. This should serve as a reminder that wild animals, no matter how cute, probably want to kill you. And never get between a mother and her child.

Escalator Trials

June 4, 2010

I nearly cried watching this one. Maybe it is the song, maybe it is the one guy giving up, but this is sort of beautiful. Not really sure why they tried going up the down escalator and why nobody was going down that escalator, but there is something profoundly human about the struggle to keep […]

World’s Smallest Cannon

May 13, 2010

The only problem I have with this video is the demonstration didn’t go far enough. If they had made a bunch of these things and put them on a couple model ships and then had a sea battle, that would be something. This demo is pretty amateur hour.

More Exciting Than Baseball

April 23, 2010

When rain delayed two college teams’ game, they refused to just sit around and wait. Instead they put on a show. It seems like these weren’t spontaneous entertainments, they must have practiced at some point. My favorite part of the report was how the voiceover guy basically said at the end ‘oh, they played a […]

2 Doses of Badass

March 26, 2010

I think I am more intimidated by the guy with the magazine. Anyone can break a ton of concrete blocks, but defending a folding chair with a magazine is hard to do.

Skiing Nut Shot

February 26, 2010

As I’ve aged the plethora of injury/falling videos on the internet have lost some of their appeal. However, this video’s narration brought it to a special place. And though it happened a while ago, it fits in with the Winter Olympics so it is almost topical.

Birds, They Are Just Like Us

February 25, 2010

This is in Toronto, and according to the poster: The passengers of this train have nicknamed this pigeon ‘Henry’ and claim that at least once a week he is seen riding the subway and always walks off at the same exit. This is pretty awesome but if Henry wore a suit and carried a briefcase, […]

Nail Gun Mona Lisa

February 18, 2010

Though I am 99% sure this is fake, I still think it is pretty cool and would be super awesome if it were real. It took Leonardo da Vinci years to paint the Mona Lisa but this dude gets it done quite a lot faster. Modern technology kicks ass.
