Who? Are You Paranoid?



"Who AreYou?" from The Who mashed up with "Paranoid" by Black Sabbath. Yes, it's another masterful Bill McClintock edit. 

A Memorable Birthday Cake

Chad Riden's grandma turned 101 years old. When her children ordered the birthday cake, they said she would be one hundred and one. So the decorator wrote a hundred, then a one. Here she is, trying to look upset, but you know she's suppressing a giggle.

A discussion on the wording of numbers tells us that you shouldn't use the word "and" because the numerals would be 100.1 or maybe 100.01 which some say is taught in school, but I'd never heard of that before. In this case, you can be sure that the decorator just wasn't thinking. If it were a proper cake phrase, the numeral would be 101st. You might imagine what would have happened if they'd have asked for "Happy one hundred and first birthday."

Kiss Me Maybe



In this song parody, YouTuber Liechee uses Carly Rae Jepson's song "Call Me Maybe" to tell the story of The Little Mermaid. It's not only a clever and funny idea (if a little dated), but the song and video turned out right nice. (via Geeks Are Sexy

Do You Know What Today Is?

Deep Purple Lip-Syncs "Hush"



Deep Purple li-i-sync their 1968 song "Hush" poolside, with and without instruments. This looks pretty casual, which makes it way more fun. (via Laughing squid)

Robot Tryst



For months, they were just two robots passing in the night. But one evening the stars aligned for them, they finally met, and sparks flew. They coupled and then fell asleep. Philip Bloom captured the incident on two Nest cameras and another camera attached to his cat feeder. Since both robots have edge detectors, you'll have to watch the video to see how it happened.

Area 51 Raiders

Here's a picture taken early this morning somewhere in Nevada of the first folks ready to storm Area 51. The event is was originally called  “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us,” before it was changed at the last minute. Maybe they can't stop all of us, but the US military will have no trouble stopping these couple of dozen people. There are probably more journalists around than raiders. (via reddit)
