Project 88 - Back to the Future Too



Remember Star Wars Uncut, The Empire Strikes Back Uncut, and Shrek Retold? Here's another group project that involves all kinds of people doing scenes separately to remake a whole movie. They took Back to the Future Part 2, cut it into 88 pieces, and let people al over remake the scenes in their own style. But this time, it was done under quarantine, with only what was available at home, so it was a real challenge, and therefore even more Sweded. And since the explainer above was released, the rest of the movie has been finished. Here it is.

The guy from You Suck at Cooking shows us some culinary tips and tricks for preparing fresh fruits and vegetables. If you start to think this is a one-joke video, keep watching. Not only does he take vegetables apart, he puts them back together again. His leek actually leaks. And we find out why one asparagus is called a spear. (via Digg)

Quarantine Coffee

This recipe only has three ingredients: tequila, Cointreau, and lime... well, that's three, so there's no room for coffee. (via TYWKIWDBI)

Why Are Calico Cats Always Female?



The reason only female cats have calico markings, or almost always, have to do with genetics. The exact story of those genes is quite interesting. Simon Whistler of Today I Found Out tells us all about it. He also explains catnip.

Freeride Skiing at Home



Philipp Klein Herrero was supposed to take his family on a freeride skiing trip, but had to cancel. At home, all he could think about was skiing, so he used his GoPro camera to make a little stop-motion video about it, which probably took as long a climbing up that mountain would have.
