Dancing on a Street Corner



Andrew Wilcox lost a basketball game to his brother, for the first time ever. They had a bet on the game that the loser had to dance on a street corner in Provo, Utah, to whatever music the winner selects. He thought it was going to be humiliating, until people started joining him! The obvious reaction: “And that, kids, is how I met your mother.” (via reddit)

It's a Poopy Trap!


It's a poopy trap! After peace has prevailed in a galaxy far far away, the mighty rebel admiral retired from military service and started his own diaper cleaning service. And he's already got a handy motto, courtesy of NeatoShop artist Matt Sinor.

Playing Jenga with Heavy Equipment



One surefire way to get the internet’s attention is to take something that was already fun and make it so big that someone could get hurt. In this case, it’s a super sized game of Jenga, although for copyright reasons, they call the game “Stack.” The playing pieces are 600-pound blocks of wood. The players are operating five different pieces of heavy equipment (excavators and telehandlers, etc.) in this promotional video from Cat® Products (Caterpillar). When the stack finally tips over, you’d better get out of the way fast! The behind-the-scenes video is pretty amazing, too.

Flying Firefighter



A Russian fire department found a unique way to pass the time. How many fire hoses does it take to levitate a flying carpet? And what could possibly go wrong? I have to wonder how many videos were recorded before they got this one. And how many bumps and bruises were involved in the research. (via The Chive)

The Original Predator Look



The original design for the alien in the movie Predator was not the look that ended up in the film. It was not amenable to an actor actually walking around it, much less performing martial arts, as Jean-Claude van Damme thought he would. Ultimately, van Damme was replaced by 7’ 2” actor Kevin Peter Hall, not only because of his disgust with the role, but also because he was so much smaller than Arnold Schwarzenegger and Carl Weathers. Let’s get another look at that costume.

Does a Bear Fall in the Woods?



Animal welfare officials were called when a bear was spotted 30 feet up in a tree in Panama City, Florida. The 250-pound bear was shot with a tranquilizer gun. To catch the falling bear, the crew erected a tarp as a sort of net a few feet off the ground. But a tarp is not as strong as a 250-pound bear falling from a 30-foot height, as anyone should have figured out. The bear tore right through and hit the ground with a splat. The bear was uninjured, and fortunately, slept right through the ordeal. (via Arbroath)
