Miniature Bridge

Remember that miniature concrete building that some guy made?  Here’s a bridge version of it.  It looks slightly better, except the on and off ramp look way too steep for the scale.  I gotta admit, the whole thing of building real life miniatures is pretty cool, but it’s pretty strange too.  Like I get it if you’re using it to demonstrate something, but to do it for fun?  I don’t need a scale model bridge.

The Video ends when Mario Dies

Sadly over the last dozen years I’ve moved away from Nintendo games and products and gravitated towards Halo.  I still have a special place in my heart for the big N, but I just don’t have the time for their things anymore.  I’ve played Mario Maker, and watched my friends people play some of the other big games – Zelda, Mario Kart – but since The Wii, I haven’t had a new Nintendo System.  I think that’s sad, but I also know my limits, I don’t have the time anymore.

What is not sad however is watching people play these insane Mario Maker levels.  I can’t really remember any of the great ones I’ve watched over the years, most have been while doing other things and I haven’t paid attention.  I’m sure I could look through my YouTube history and find them, but who knows what else I would find.  Thanks to reddit though, you have the above short and sweet video.  You’re welcome.

Crazy Tesla Coil Gun

Ok, last time there was a LASER Gun, today it’s a Tesla Coil.  It’s ridiculous.  The Tesla Coil is not quite as dangerous, but also completely terrifyingly dangerous, science is weird like that.  Anyway, this channel is pretty neat, you should watch it to learn more about things.

Super LASER

There’s really no need for this, but like a good America, it had to be made.  I don’t know if he’s American, but it doesn’t matter, this is American to the core.

I need one.

Strange Juggling Balance Thing

I really don’t see a need for this, but it exists because someone made it.  That someone is Ameron Rosvall, a prop maker and juggler (according to his Instagram), also the owner of a pretty sick beard.  He’s got some pretty neat contraptions on his Instagram, but that one above is the king.  He looks so satisfied getting the balls to remain in their loops just dancing around.  He’s got some pretty good hand-eye-chin coordination too, check out this one:

The smaller ring works too 😃

Normal Items, turned into Space Ships

Instagram artist Spacegooose has a unique claim to fame, taking ordinary every day objects and re-imagining them as space ships. I first found him via this reddit post of a shampoo bottle.

Here’s a unique take on a whisk:

He doesn’t only do objects into space ships, he does original space ships, as well as visions of famous star ships of science fiction.  I never had the artistic ability to do stuff this detailed, but I did have an imagination which would provide all sorts of things.  I love reading about space ships and all the ridiculous stuff that goes on them when aerodynamics don’t mean anything.

You should check out his ArtStation while you’re at it.  He’s pretty talented.

LEGO Mustang

Have you ever wanted a car?  What about a LEGO car?  How about a Ford Mustang?  Well you’re in luck because a few years ago LEGOLand Florida built a full sized 1964 Ford Mustang, completely out of LEGO Bricks.  194,900 of them to be exact.  Some were DUPLO bricks, but that doesn’t matter in the grand scheme.  They even built in working head and tail lights.  It’s lighter than an actual Ford Mustang, but I bet if you put the engine and transmission in it would approach it.  It’s probably not very good in a crash.  Though a car from 1964 is also probably not one you want to crash in, so it’s a wash there.

Great Videos of The Past

My fiancee was showing me something the other day.  It was a video that she loved in her younger days of the internet.  Before Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, reddit, all of those things.  Back when you had to actually search for quality (or lack of) humor on the internetz.  Many hours were spent stumbling around the internet looking for things, and finding things.  I can’t remember where exactly I first saw the video, and I know I posted about it before but I can’t find it.  Anyway, I had to show her the infamous Benny Lava.

Benny Lava is superior to whatever you might be thinking.  It’s a classic internet video.  It’s not necessarily as wide spread as The Ultimate Showdown, but it’s far more known than Electronik Supersonik which I also had to show her:

Yes nostalgia and the internet go hand in hand.  It’s almost like the internet was made for it.

Anyway, I’ve posted the above videos again because they are amazing and you have to watch them.

The Wind in Real Time

Real time data, weather data, it’s all interesting isn’t it?

Wind Data

On Nullschool.net you can explore real time wind data and watch weather patterns form.  It’s pretty neat if I do say so myself.  Check it out if you can, I am.

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:
