Awareness of Surroundings FAIL

Not much to report from the internets lately, so here's an oldie with Dennis Rodman (remember that guy? I just checked and he's 51 now...) decking a lady who entered his path. ;p

Yeah, yeah, I know it's not Dennis Rodman and that she should really have been looking where she was going.

In any case... OUCH.

Sh*t Southern Women Say

Even if you don't get all the references, this is still quite entertaining.

Black Friday Craziness

For anyone not familiar with the subject, Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving in the US when many retailers open really early (e.g. 03:00a.m.) and (theoretically at least) offer amazingly great deals. It is considered the start of the Christmas holiday shopping season.

Many people camp outside stores, even weeks earlier, in order to be the first to enter and grab the item they've set their sights on. Reports of people getting trampled, fights among customers and total rampage in stores are not uncommon in the news on Black Friday.

The following video demonstrates this (bear in mind though that the footage is from previous years and not 2012):

Touchscreen Newscast FAIL

A (French-speaking) Canadian news presenter attempts a hi-tech approach to news reporting and... fails miserably.

Oh! Oh! Oh! It's Thanksgiving!

From the bulk song makers geniuses (ARK Music Factory) behind Rebecca Black's most disliked ever viral hit "Friday" comes another singer/customer with rich parents rising young star in the form of Nicole Westbrook and her "Friday"-wannabe but not quite hit song "It's Thanksgiving".

And here's Brock Baker's take on the song:

Let's Enhance (supercut)

Since I'm on the subject of supercuts...

Not a supercut, but it certainly takes the cake as far as enhancing goes.
From the British sci-fi comedy TV series "Red Dwarf" (which I did try to watch in the past, put unfortunately I found it disappointingly crappy, but this clip is good, trust me).

"Not in Kansas Any More" (supercut)

Hmmm, I haven't posted a supercut for a long time.

There. I fixed it.

I've been to Kansas. Very empty and very flat. At least the western part.
Quite a few wind turbines though, which is always a plus in my book.

PS. The Youtube video is titled "Not in Kansas Anymore".
Is "anymore" really a word? According to this, yes. Well, I prefer "any more".

It's Friday! Friday!

I can't believe I have never posted Rebecca Black's "Friday".
That is sacrilegious.

Here it is in all its "glory", along with a couple of the best parodies:

Literal video version (by dascottjr, whose insanely funny literal videos we've seen before)

Brock's dub (by Brock Baker aka McGoiter, Rebecca Black's personal favorite!)

Everybody's Russian!

Official (TV Series) Spoiler Rules

Stars from (as of November 2012) recently ended (Heroes, Battlestar Galactica) or still airing TV series (Dexter, Walkind Dead) explain the newly defined official spoiler rules.

Yap, you definitely don't play with these things.

Boy, does that Nelsan Ellis guy look bored in this or what?
Seriously dude. Sorry to wake you up for this... 10 minute shooting!

Rollercoaster Costume

This video was, as expected, uploaded around Halloween.
Very ingenious costume indeed.

Human Aging Timelapses

This is interesting, but also a bit depressing.

People in order of age - 1 to 100

35 years backwards through time (2011-1976)

Natalie - Birth to 10 years old

Lotte - Birth to 12 years old

Vince (Lotte's brother) - Birth to 9 years old 

Noah takes a picture of himself for 12.5 years (January 11, 2000 - June 30, 2012)

Creepy music was a bit unnecessary in the last one.

Mitt Romney's Concession Song

Yap, that's pretty much true.

Finally, the election is over. In the end, not as tight a race as the media were projecting.
So, in a couple of years (or even sooner), the news will again be dominated this time by both the race for the Democratic and the race for the Republican nomination as the countdown to the 2016 election begins (2-3 years early, because you know, papers need to be sold, sites need to get clicks). Quite similar to what happens in my country actually, with the main difference being that in the US, elections are held exactly every 4 years and not 2-3 times a year...

I Told My Kid I Ate All Their Halloween Candy Again

Following last year's success, Jimmy Kimmel again asked parents to tell their kids that they had eaten all the Halloween candy they had worked hard to amass during trick or treating, record their reaction and upload it on Youtube. Here are some of the best reactions as picked by Jimmy Kimmel's team. Hilarious. Make sure to watch it till the end.

They Took Our Jobs!!!

I just watched yet another Mitt Romney ad on Youtube talking about how people in Ohio (a state which has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the US) want jobs and how he's going to create them through spectacular methods such as producing energy from... coal.

Yes. Coal. I had the impression that this was 2012.
Republicans, it seems, are stuck somewhere around the '70s and '80s.

In any case, it reminded me of this classic South Park excerpt (all truth be told, Romney did not say anything about Ohioans losing jobs to immigrants).

Der Tek Arderrrr!!!

Fix This Bridge Already!

Or at least improve the signage of this Durham, North Carolina bridge.
It even has its own site!

I understand people with rented Penske trucks not knowing their trucks' clearance (I'd probably be oblivious to it myself if I were in their position), but professional truckers?!

Hurricane Sandy Felling Trees

The video is amazing in itself, but what lifts it higher than similar videos is the insane conversation and reactions of this very... happy family.
