Guy Trapped Naked Outside His Hotel Room

In this viral hit from a couple of years ago, a hotel guest is too lazy to put on clothes to go out to the hallway to leave his tray.

Instead, he checks, and decides to come out naked.

And the door locks behind him...


But also, ha, ha, hilarious!

Quite a predicament.

I wouldn't wish this to my worst enemy (OK, I might).

But why doesn't he ask the two guys passing by to contact reception?
Or at least give him a towel to cover himself?


Because unfortunately (or fortunately)...
I'll let the following video explain.

When Monkeys Are Paid Unequally...

This is an excerpt from a TED talk by Frans de Waal, a Dutch primatologist and ethologist working mostly in the United States. The subject of the talk was "Moral Behavior in Animals".

Two capuchin monkeys were paid unequally for doing the exact same job.
Watch what happens when the lower paid one realizes the injustice.

And also Turkey. Give back what you stole. Obey international rules for once.

First Moon Party

This video has reached 11million+ views in just four days and justifiably so.
It's hilarious.

High quality acting, high quality production right there.
Going viral? They're doing it right.

The Cannikin Bomb

The Cannikin bomb was the largest thermonuclear bomb ever detonated underground by the United States.

From the Youtube video:

Cannikin was detonated on November 6th, 1971 on Amchitka island, Alaska. The announced yield was 5Mt. The explosive force, almost 400 times that of the bomb dropped on Hiroshima, lifted the ground by 6m. The explosion caused a seismic shock of 7.0 on the Richter scale. 

It is extremely unnerving that already 40 to 50 years ago humans could create bombs that could unleash such energy. With today's 30 minute delivery and weapon miniaturization one can only hope that calm and sane men control the important buttons.

5. ESPN reporter's grasp of the Champions League is... cringeworthy

6. Unexpected

7. Seriously lady...

8. Repeat offender

9. Watch out behind you!

10. Face of shock

When Will The Bass Drop?

This post can be considered a sequel to the "What DJs Really Do These Days..." post.

The Lonely Island team very accurately satirize modern DJs and their beat dropping.
