The Slow Mo Guys are at it again, with Gav and Dan deploying air bags in slow motion.
It’s crazy to see how something that saves lives can look so violent. Even with their high-speed camera, the air bag still moves quickly on the footage.
If you’ve been keeping up with the news at all, then you know about what’s been happening in Ukraine the last month. You have also probably heard a lot of people speculating that this is the beginning of WWIII and saying that the US and Russia are going to have a go at it.
Ukraine is a country that has been in conflict for a very long time, mainly because the powers around it continue to try and control it for their own interests. Russia, it seems, is revisiting that after the Ukraine’s government became unstable when protesters and opposition leaders within Ukraine took to the streets and ousted President Viktor Yanukovich.
It’s all very complicated, especially considering the Ukraine’s long history of war and political unrest (thanks mainly to Europe and Russia, but most especially Stalin).
John Green is here to help you understand what exactly is happening in Ukraine right now, as well as some historical context, so that you don’t feel completely lost.
TL;DR – Shit’s fucked, man.
There are few videos I actually watch all the way through to the end when they’re more than 5 minutes long. These Mental Floss videos are definitely in that category.
Also, I love the story Bill Murray always tells about why he did Garfield. It’s so Bill Murray.
This is the first I’m hearing of this band… group… concoction? I guess I’m not hip. This is ‘Babymetal’, a half-pop/half-metal trio from Japan, and apparently they’ve just released their first full-length album.
Tonight’s the 86th Academy Awards.
Beutler Ink celebrates the 2014 Oscars with a poster commemorating each of the past 85 Best Picture winners. See how many movies you can recognize from the icon alone.
Looking at these figures, I can’t figure out for the life of me why Sriracha seems so much more spicy than Tabasco sauce. I can eat Tabasco sauce on things just fine, but then once I put Sriracha on something, it feels like I might pass out because my mouth is figuratively on fire. A deep, deep fire like the ones that burn in hell.
Either way, I’m glad to know that my bottle of Sriracha (which I mainly keep for guests) will probably never go bad because of the chemicals in it. And it’s going to maintain that sweet red color for a very long time.
