Right Down The Drain.

This is a video of several college freshman emptying 32 glowsticks into the back of a dorm toilet and then flushing it. Normally I'd make fun of them, but it's actually pretty awesome.

Thor'd Hammer In The Morning

Seen in the top picture going for a four person sign-holding record (and proving there might actually be something to the whole "strength in numbers" thing after all), the Westboro Baptist Church's Comic-Con protest was met with some stiff opposition to say the least. Maybe God's not on your side after all. The superheroes definitely aren't!
"They've faced down humans time and time again, but Fred Phelps and his minions from the Westboro Baptist Church were not ready for the cosplay action that awaited them today at Comic-Con. After all, who can win against a counter protest that includes robots, magical anime girls, Trekkies, Jedi and...kittens?

"Unbeknownst to the dastardly fanatics of the Westboro Baptist Church, the good folks of San Diego's Comic-Con were prepared for their arrival with their own special brand of superhuman counter protesting chanting "WHAT DO WE WANT" "GAY SEX" "WHEN DO WE WANT IT" "NOW!" while brandishing ironic (and some sincere) signs. Simply stated: The eclectic assembly of nerdom's finest stood and delivered."
 Oh man, I love a good counter-protest.

The Goon Is Good Enough.

Oooooooooooo! Good news, fans of Eric Powell's paranormal comic The Goon: there's a David Fincher-producer (the Facebook movie guy!) animated movie of that coming out soon, and thanks to MTV, now we have a brief preview of it. Even better news for you: it looks like an extremely accurate recreation of the popular series. What a novel approach.

Really.

These are a couple of Pokémon battle scenes IRL as imagined by Flickr user alecks(zander)kwin. Oh, and IRL stands for "In Real Life" if today's your first day on the internet  or you're a parent reading this over your child's shoulder.

That's... Just... Fine.

This is a video of two guys spoiling the endings to 50 classic  NES games. You might not want to watch if there's still some games  you're working on... but since it's been TWENTY YEARS you might as well give up already.

Just Eat It

In the future meat  will be scarce, and in order to get your RDA of protein you're gonna have to start eating more nuts and beans. Or... OR... zombie jerky. Zombie Jerky is just like beef jerky except made out of people you knew.

Improv Everywhere Are The Plans?

"For our latest mission, we staged a reenactment of the first Princess Leia / Darth Vader scene from Star Wars on a New York City subway car. The white walls and sliding doors on the train reminded us of the rebel ship from the movie, and we thought it would be fun to see how people would react to a surprise appearance by the iconic characters. We spread out the actors along the train line, staging it so they would enter the right car at the right time."


Oh man, did I tell you about the improv troupe I saw the last time I was in New York? They faked this whole elaborate stabbing on the subway. I would have sworn it was real. Okay, so it might have been real.

Winner?

This is a little video created by College Humor demonstrating what it would be like if classic video games all had a super-easy mode. Well... what would it be like? Not fun.

Uh-Oh.


"Arcing over Zhejiang's provincial capital Hangzhou, the UFO appeared to glow with an eerie white light and left a bright trail in its wake.

"Stunned witnesses reported seeing a comet-like fireball in the sky and a number of local residents took photos of the strange ball of light.

"'The thing suddenly ran westwards fast, like it was escaping from something,' he said."

NSFW... NR... IMI.

This is the "NSFW Workplace Safety Advisory System," it works just like the color-coded Homeland Security Advisory System. I don't know about you, but I could die happily never seeing a threat over yellow. You? I can tell you're a deviant... isn't that you up there in red?

Turn. Or Turn Not.

This is a funny little video of Yoda  doing his voice recording for the  Star Wars series of TomTom GPS voices. I'm not even gonna lie: I giggled.
