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.

I Don’t Know

Really, I don’t know.  I’m not sure why it exists.  But you must watch it.  And you must be terrified.

Some Incredible Coke + Mentos

It’s simply fun to watch.  I don’t know what the world record is.  Or why he’s using Nutella.  All I do know is that it was a joy to watch a grown man have that much excitement.  The video is way better then the reddit gif originally makes it out to be.

The Aztec’s Were Crazy

Once you can get past the terrible narration, you can appreciate the absolutely terrifying nature of this whistle.  It’s theorized that these whistles were used to strike fear in the enemies.  Or to send send the human brain into the next state of being.

I guess when you don’t have metallurgy, or guns, or those fun things, you have to make your own strange things to pass the time.

This video is somewhat easier to watch because the woman can carry a conversation better:

She also has a collection of whistles to blow though and terrify you with.

It’s Just Hotdogs

Being sneaked into people’s pockets.  The guy is quite fun to watch.  I love the PG attitude he has throughout.  Too often now people curse in the videos that otherwise don’t really warrant it.

Fragile Engines

If for some reason you wanted to make a steam engine made entirely out of (what I can assume is hand-blown) glass, then the above video should be right up your alley.  I’m sure that is serves some sort of educational purpose, but I’m also sure that whatever purpose it is, this device is far to expensive to be practical.  So I guess it’s purpose is to be ace.

Anvil Shooting

Honestly, I’m not 100% sure how I found this video.  Once you watch it though you will realize why I posted it.  It’s frekin insane the sound that happens.  Who knew there was a world record for anvil shooting?

So Many Faucets

Seriously, who knew that the lonely faucet had so many new ways to operate?  If you don’t believe me, search for “faucet” on Yanko Design, (or just click that link).  At the time of this writing, there’s 13 pages worth.  Sure, some of them are stupid crazy things, but some are actually pretty neat.

This swirling pattern faucet is what first sparked my interest.

It is neat, and it probably is less harsh on your hands, but I don’t know 2 things.  1 – how much water it will actually save.  There’s the paradox of you’re using less of something, but that something is so cheap now that you’ll end up using more of it anyway.  In this case, the price of the water hasn’t changed, but the delivery method is so neat that people will watch it more then usual.  And secondly, as someone on imgur pointed out, calcium deposits.

Next on the list is this strange one that directs a waterfall upwards.

water-up

How it’s expected to get this perfect curve I’ll never understand.  Anyone who’s played with a hose will know that that stream will work for about 2 seconds, then fall apart and mess everything up.  The creators think the water fountain like design will make it easier to brush your teeth, I think that’s quite an edge case.  But hey, it’s a free concept!

The Ring Faucet though is my favorite:

I could conceive of this faucet in a bathroom at my house.  Provided I had a wife that would allow it, or a workshop where I could tinker with things that is.  While I don’t share all of the sentimental things that the designer does, I do think that the ring of water falling down is quite cool.  Like most humans, I could watch moving water for hours on end, so I think this might end up needing to go into the guest bathroom where I won’t see it often enough to waste the water.

I totally could put this on the wall and get looks from people though.  What are you supposed to put in that hole?

How Neat is this?

That’s pretty neat, that’s what that is. This is what I’m doing this week now, watching Nature, and all the neat things that make it up.

You should really watch the rest of the videos on the channel, they are really well done.  Don’t really take anything he says to heart though, it’s a parody account.  For the most part it’s sane information, but it’s still crazy.  And neat!

Creepy Abandoned Hotels

https://youtu.be/O8xRsZCr4T8?list=TLGGrjPuiLhtnQkyNjA4MjAxNw

Igloo City is my favorite one on the list.  Yes I have a soft spot in my heart for Alaska, I think it’s one of the most exotic ones because of it’s weird look.  It also looks like it was just abandoned.  Some of the others in the list are truly abandoned, and look like they’re about to fall down and that’s what makes them creepy.  This giant igloo in the middle of Alaska, that’s creepy.
