I don't always post cat videos,

but when I do,

they're pretty cool.

(don't worry, it has subtitles in English)

This could go on forever.

Recycling. Flash Mob Style!

An old video (as can be inferred from the whopping resolution of 240p), but if this doesn't leave you with a smile on your face, then... I dunno man.

Holocaust Remembrance in Israel

Yap, THIS is how you show respect for your dead and for your history.

(although it is a bit precarious doing it in the middle of the motorway)

I wish we showed similar respect when remembering the Pontic/Pontian genocide (part of the Greek genocide) every May 19th.

On the Subject of Watermelons...

Right in the kisser!

Ahhhh, so enjoyable!

Cutting up a watermelon in under 30 seconds

How to eat a watermelon (with a spoon)

I'm just putting this here for the interesting idea of eating watermelon with a spoon.

The rest, such as combining watermelon with marshmallows and peanut butter, as well as the notion that half a watermelon is one serving (try it and your stomach will feel as if it's going to explode, followed by frequent visits to the bathroom as you'll feel the need to pee a lot) is utter nonsense (americanisms, pfff!).

What the video doesn't tell you is that this gentleman is in fact 45, but this is what combining marshmallows and peanut butter with half a watermelon does to you over a few years.

Good Deeds By Russian Drivers

Who would have thought it possible?

After all those crash videos, it was about time someone made a positive dashcam video compilation from Russia.

It will take quite a bit more to restore my faith in humanity, but it's a start.

Miniature Melbourne (tilt-shift)

A short tilt-shift (see note at the end) time-lapse film featuring the city of Melbourne, Australia, by Nathan Kaso.

Miniature Melbourne from Nathan Kaso on Vimeo.

Very beautiful, although it isn't true tilt-shift.

From the video description on Vimeo:

The tilt-shift effect and grading was applied in Photoshop, and the film was edited in LRTimelapse, After Effects and Premiere Pro CS6.
