Video Interlude – How not to race a speedboat full of half naked chicks across a rough sea …

The driver’s impression of someone being shot being outdone by the ‘chicks in a food mixer’ ending I think :

The ‘pink bikini faceplant’ must have smarted a little too.

Video Interlude – One to get the bansturbators in a tizz – smoking and drinking edition …

How about this for a demonstration of how to down a pint whilst simultaneously puffing on a cig :

Now, what film is that clip from??

Video Interlude – Tennis line judge hiding balls …

Reminds me of something else on the internet with a lady firing ping pong balls from a particular orifice …

So close to being squished …

Barroso “is a deluded communist idiot” … Farage on the EU

Nigel Farage speaking his mind in his usual frank manner which, as always, leads to a rather amusing interview : _ _

Whilst he is having a dig at Barroso and van Rumpey Pumpey, he also makes a very good point in the interview on the likeness of the EU to the old USSR […]

Video Interlude – I guess that some countries have more relaxed laws regarding goods vehicles…

Whilst VOSA drones would probably soil their underwear in anticipation of the reams of paperwork the following would generate, it would seem that in some places, attitudes are much more relaxed to the loading of vehicles :

Take note of the guy hanging out of the lorry door in a vain attempt to […]

Video Interlude – Wrecking ball hits car on busy street …

Whilst this looks like a scene from Gone in 60 seconds, I think the reaction of the people walking on the road would suggest that it isn’t CGI in this case :

I am left wondering whether this was a film set pictured from afar or a demolition fuck up.

Video Interlude – Venus transit of the Sun.

Well I saw bugger all here yesterday morning with thick cloud but, thankfully, we have NASA to thank for this beautiful video which has some amazing shots of the sun and Venus : _ _

A fascinating video showing 1000 years of European history in 3 minutes.

Spotted at ZeroHedge, the following video demands several viewings if only to see everything going on in various parts of Europe as empires ebb and flow. One particularly impressive moment in the video is when Germany becomes a unified country rather than a myriad small states and then suddenly explodes to colour the whole […]

Video Interlude – when parking your shiny new cargo ship, just remember that stopping takes quite a long time …

… unless that is you ram it right into another parked ship followed quickly by the quayside :

Video Interlude – Putting holes in cars with a wooden slingshot…

Beautifully made and highly effective car destroyer – who wouldn’t want one of these? _ _

I particularly like the racket it makes when it goes off!

Video Interlude – a brain researchers experience of her own cerebral hemmorhage.

Mentioned in passing at Watts Up With That, the following Ted video is well worth spending 18 minutes on. Jill Bolte Taylor gives a brilliant presentation and speaks with a genuine passion 8 years after observing her own stroke :

Jill Bolte Taylor got a research opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: She […]

The Alien prequel … erm I mean Prometheus trailer looks damned good …

Whilst I never fully judge a film by it’s trailer (as the trailers usually contain all the bits worth seeing from the film condensed into 2 or 3 minutes leaving the other hour or so as dull as ditchwater), the trailer for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus certainly looks stunning : _ _

One to look […]

Demonstrating earthquake power using sound – a brilliant video of all the quakes of 2011 …

First spotted at Zerohedge over the weekend, I thought I would share this one too as it’s a great example of how to make something abstract clearly understandable.

The method used in the video is sound, with the volume being related to the earthquake magnitude (all quakes over mag 4.5 shown) and the pitch […]

Now that was one hell of a bang – SS John Burke detonating in 1944

One thing about the internet that still surprises me is the amazing array of things you can just stumble across with a few random clicks.

The following video is one of those surprises (for me at least) and shows the last few seconds of the US Navy supply ship SS John Burke which was […]
