If you didn’t already know that slow-motion effects make everything look way cooler, direct your attention to this mesmerizing video in which everyday stuff like water and metal vibrate at 1,000 frames per second (compare that to typical TV and movie shots, which are typically 24, 25 and 30 FPS).
Apparently they do high school graduation a little differently in Taichung, Taiwan. Instead of just throwing on ‘Pomp and Circumstance’ and reading out a list of names, Ming-Dao High principal Albert T. Wang emerges onto a smoke-filled stage dressed in a full Iron Man costume and delivers a speech in not one, but two languages. His message: “Believe in yourself. You are also Iron Man.”
It's hard to Dunk. Participants in this weekend's Gus Macker prove that. Only the elite players can slam the ball home. But if you're not quite as athletic as Gus Macker players, you might want to consider dunking down on an Arcade basketball machine like Atlanta-based rocker Aaron Keyes . He ended an epic game of H-O-R-S-E by dunking on an arcade basketball game. Lucky for us, YouTube comedy duo Tripp and Tyler caught it all on film.
Counting sheep is a relaxing way to fall asleep, unless you’re Ci the border collie, in which case it would most likely lead to frightening night terrors. Ci may technically be a sheepdog, but he’s also afraid of sheep, a fear that dates all the way back to puppyhood. According to his 54-year-old owner Jane Lippington, the sheep herding instinct is definitely present in Ci, but instinct can only take him so far.
We don’t know what it is exactly, but Australia has been having its fair share of great news bloopers recently. This video of a streaker running behind a 9News weatherman as he reports on the bitter cold temperatures in the mountain town of Katoomba (about 60 miles west of Sydney) is no exception. Be sure to pay close attention though: It’s a quick streak and if you blink, you might miss it. In fact, given how cold it is, you might still miss “it” if he were standing there, stark naked, right in front of you. There’s also a part of us that wonders if most Australians would even bat an eye at this sort of thing because if you’ve ever seen one of those “World’s Funniest Commercial” specials, all the naked ones are from Australia.
For most of us down here on earth, June 7th was a fairly typical day. If you happened to be on the sun, on the other hand, you would have been treated to one of the most massive solar explosions man has ever seen. It may not look all that big in the video — the footage was captured on an ultraviolet camera by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory — but remember, this is the sun we’re looking at here. It’s more than 100 times larger than the Earth.
When Aptos, California resident Peter Govaars went with his daughter to examine the the damage that a two-day storm had wrought on nearby Hidden Beach, he discovered the skeleton of a digital camera. It was beaten and battered by the ocean but, amazingly, the memory card was still intact. After opening and cleaning the card with rubbing alcohol to remove the salt and sand, Govars inserted it into his computer and found 104 photographs taken in nearby Santa Cruz during a two-week period in June of 2007. The images, he concluded, had just survived a possible and remarkable four years at sea.
Amidst a sea of fact- and opinion-based newspapers, parody publication The Onion has stood as a beacon of completely made-up journalism for 1,000 issues. The paper has never received a prize for its years of service, so naturally, an also made-up watchdog group called Americans for Fairness in Awarding Journalism Prizes has taken up the noble cause of pressuring the Pulitzer committee to bestow The Onion with its top honors.
