Dog Knows What It Wants

It would have been more convincing if she had said "bath" or "walk" consecutively, but still it's quite entertaining.

Another Halloween Prank

I've seen something similar before somewhere on the internets, but I don't think I've ever posted it here. It's quite a neat trick.

For anyone wondering why people are gathering in that particular alley...
The city is San Luis Obispo in California and one of its main (only?) "tourist attractions" is this, Bubblegum Alley.
Yes, it's an alley where people, for many years now, have been sticking chewing gum on the walls and taking pictures.
Nuff said.

Interesting Halloween Costume Idea

These 4-legged stilt costumes are a bit... unsettling.

From the Youtube video info:

"We were inspired by the Frouds who made the Landstriders in the Dark Crystal. They have seen them in person and love them! We were also inspired by Miyazaki."

OK... so I had no idea who these Frouds and Landstriders they were talking about were (although Wikipedia and Google have helped shed some light), but I can definitely see the Miyazaki connection.

Who Won the First Lady Debate?

Jimmy Kimmel did an experiment asking people who won the First Lady debate.
Considering that it never happened, it's amazing how many people actually watched it.

First of all, to play the devil's advocate here, they don't show us how many people actually knew that it was a trick question. They only show five people who said they saw it. Is that out of ten people they asked or out of two hundred? 

Secondly, this was filmed on Hollywood Boulevard where many wannabe stars hang out. So perhaps it didn't matter what the question was as long as they could be seen on camera. For example, the first guy walks by at 2:19 when the fourth guy is talking, meaning that he was either interviewed earlier and passed by again or he was passing by, saw the camera and grabbed the opportunity.


The Internet Loves Cats

That's a well-known fact, so here are three more cat videos.

Bodyform Viral Ad

Bodyform, a UK-based company specializing in feminine hygiene products, received the following comment on its Facebook page by user Richard Neill:

­"Hi , as a man I must ask why you have lied to us for all these years . As a child I watched your advertisements with interest as to how at this wonderful time of the month that the female gets to enjoy so many things ,I felt a little jealous. I mean bike riding , rollercoasters, dancing, parachuting, why couldn't I get to enjoy this time of joy and 'blue water' and wings !! Dam my penis!! Then I got a girlfriend, was so happy and couldn't wait for this joyous adventurous time of the month to happen lied !! There was no joy , no extreme sports , no blue water spilling over wings and no rocking soundtrack oh no no no. Instead I had to fight against every male urge I had to resist screaming wooaaahhhhh bodddyyyyyyfooorrrmmm bodyformed for youuuuuuu as my lady changed from the loving , gentle, normal skin coloured lady to the little girl from the exorcist with added venom and extra 360 degree head spin. Thanks for setting me up for a fall bodyform , you crafty bugger"

Bodyform didn't let the opportunity pass them by and responded in a classically British sarcastic style.

Well played Bodyform. Well played.

Reminds me of this joke...

The Right Way to Peel a Banana

Do it like the experts.

Mind. Blown.

(actually I saw this a couple of years ago, but after adopting this technique I concur, this is, if not the right way, definitely the most efficient way to peel a banana)

Canadian Runner Has Close Call With Bear

I understand the appeal of running, hiking, biking, camping, etc. in North America's beautiful national parks. But doing it alone and in an area of British Columbia which is known to be grizzly bear country? I consider it a bad idea. In any case, this guy got the adrenaline rush of a lifetime and lived to tell the tale.

The event is at 03:12, so you can start watching around the three-minute mark if you wish.

Pffff, he thinks he's safe, but surely the bear can follow the malodorous trail he left behind him... ;p

Worst Movie Death Scene Ever!

(until the next one that surfaces)

This excerpt from the Turkish 1973 movie "Karateci Kiz" has been doing the rounds on the internets in the past few days and rightly so.

It truly is hilarious!

It would have been perfect if the movie contained this exact scene.
But it did seem illogical that no one (director, actors, etc.) even in 70s Turkish cinema didn't realize how ridiculous the scene looked. And indeed it has been cleverly edited.

Here is the original, quite a bit more silent, but still kind of ridiculous, scene from the movie.
It starts at 01:58, but you can watch it from the beginning if you want to catch a glimpse of what led to the despicable act ;)

Singapore (tilt-shift)

It's been some time since I posted a tilt-shift, time-lapse video.
This one is pretty nice and is accompanied by good music too.
As always, suggested viewing is in HD, full screen mode.
