It’s Happened

It’s no secret that I am a great Jake and Amir fan. It might be immature of me but it’s one of those things that has stuck with me for many years. Every so often I go back and watch videos of them at random and I still crack up. It’s hard to choose a favorite from among their hundreds of videos, each one has great lines and moments. They’ve had many recurring jokes over the years, but one that was small (pun intended) and used a few of times has an unnaturally large following. I’m talking about going dickless for Chiklis. That’s right it’s an unexplainable phrase that made it’s debut in “Reddit” was followed up a year and a half later in “Reddit 2” until it was referenced a third and final time in Part 6 of the Finale.

It got to a point where people would @MichaelChiklis on Twitter the joke.  Eventually he found out and enjoyed it enough to stick with it.  Well this past weekend the joke has reached it’s conclusion.  Michael Chiklis himself went dickless:

When you gotta Go

You don’t need to go to the extreme lengths that this woman went to, but you could.  Actually, I don’t think that you could.  I don’t think it would dry or harden as much.  Also I’m not sure why she had an entire carton of litter in her bag at school.  Also, I know that this is staged but it’s still crazy.  Totally worth of the WTF subreddit.

Jake and Amir, watch Jake and Amir

It’s been a long time since Jake and Amir were regularly making videos.  I remember it like it was yesterday honestly, I can’t believe it’s been 3 or 4 years.  Any Hootie and the Blowfish, they recently joined back up on Patreon and are uploading Jake and Amir watch, Jake and Amir, it’s like director commentary on DVDs back in the day.  Just pop it in, press play and enjoy the ride.

Or, pay them some money and watch them watch themselves.  This above video is from Milk Man I and II with Ben Schwartz.  I’ll be honest, I wasn’t a big fan of the Milk Man set, but it’s fun to watch them reminisce about times past.  I almost want to sign up and watch,but they’re only like 20 episodes deep and they have over 800 to total.  Or that’s what I heard.  It seems right.

I remember stumbling to the videos years and years ago.  Remember stumble-upon.  Man those were good times.  I know Tuesdays and Thursdays I was refreshing the homepage waiting for the new video to drop.  Then before I had found the reddit community, I would hope to be one of the first to add a comment to their page.

Many good times watching them.  I still use many of the phrases in my common every day words.  It’s impressive, kind of.  Some people don’t really get it, but I do, and that’s what matters.

Check it out, pay them.

Wine Cooled PC

You can file this under the folder of “why?”, but someone decided to make a liquid cooled PC, which instead of using water, or coolant, they used wine.  Yes, they now can serve warm mulled wine to guests 60°C in a few hours.  I don’t drink Mulled Wine, but according to them, that’s the perfect drinking temperature, who knew?!

It’s odd, but hey it’s not like something crazy like this hasn’t been done before.  People used oil to cool their computers.

Check out some more of the photos on Imgur.

This is ridiculous.  Plain old ridiculous.  Apparently it’s some Red Bull event called Crashed Ice.  It is as dangerous as it looks, one of those people broke their tailbone, which is apparently excruciating.  I have no intention of ever trying this.  Watching it on the other hand, I could be for that, maybe.

What happens when you Breath In Noble Gas

Crazy things.  Of course you know that helium gives you chipmunk voice. The others get surprising.  I think my favorite is Xenon, “It almost feels like it’s attracted to the ground”.

It should be noted that this is something you should never do as they very likely can kill you if done in excess and done without any thought to safety.  This guy seems like he should not be doing them.  Especially not with anyone around to help him.  But hey, he good for him.

The end of an Era

Earlier this month something unbelievable happened, StumbleUpon closed down.  I didn’t know it was founded in 2002.  I started using it in 2005, or 2006 I think.  I can’t remember exactly, I’m pretty sure that I started using the site well before that blog post, but who knows.

Endless hours, nay, days were spent stumbling across the internet.  I found many a strange photo, or comic, or video.  Some interesting natural? formations.  The whole basis of the Going Green series of posts started from some stumbles.  I had interesting conversations with people, sadly I can’t remember any of their names.

It all started with that browser add-on.  You know, back in the hay-day of browser add-ons.  You couldn’t open someone’s browser without 36 different things opening up, stealing all your cookies, and making life really weird.  Yet back then, no one cared.  I gladly stumbled all over the internet, well into the morning hours.  Things slowed down when I switched to the Chrome browser.  And things practically disappeared when the browser add-on turned more into an iframe.  I guess SU wanted even more of our dataz.  It might have been around this time that they changed their logo from the cool green SU to the strange ugly orange.  I see that as the death of them.

I honestly not have known that they were shutting down had it not been for this Reddit Post.

Regardless, me and my 42k likes will live on forever.  They might not be relevant, they might not even exist anymore, but good golly, they were some great times wasted away on the immature internetz.

Take Care, Asshole

This isn’t the first time I’ve watched actual YouTube Ads as separate videos.  It’s a testament to the quality of said videos that I’ll sit and watch an entire ad before some other video plays.  (Un)Fortunately that was not the case this time around.
