Early last night reports started to reach various news outlets in Scotland that a bright flash had lit up the night sky over Aberdeen, which was followed by a loud rumble.
Various dash cams caught the flash on film and the general consensus at this stage is that it was caused by an exploding meteor and not wee Wille MacKenzie sparking up 20 Benson & Hedges at once in his mouth for a bet.
This is how easy it is to be washed out to sea. You never turn your back on a raging ocean nor do you walk down the beach in the middle of a storm.
This video was taken earlier this year on the coast of France at Porsguen beach in Portsall by two holidaymakers, who came to the aid of an elderly couple caught out by a rogue wave. As the video demonstrates the wave comes out of nowhere and within seconds the elderly man is on his back and being dragged out by the tide.
The good news is everyone survived the ordeal and suffered only minor injuries, but the outcome could have been completely different if the holidaymakers had decided to stay in their hotel room that day.
Ever have that feeling you’re being watched from very far away? Well the bloke in the video above did and he was right.
Posted on Reddit earlier this week the man who took the video left the following description. He wrote:
‘I took my new camera to Spain with me. While testing the zoom, I noticed this dodgy looking fellow, and I think he noticed me too…’
Of course with Reddit on the case it wasn’t long before someone managed to flesh out the innocuous story even more, by suggesting the man in the video was none other than Daniel Andreas San Diego, (real name apparently), a vegan, animal rights terrorist wanted by the FBI for two bombings in the San Francisco area in 2003.
You be the judge.
A lot of dangerous, some may say ‘fool-hardy’ experiments have been conducted in the name of science and the one above could easily be included into that bracket.
Physicist Andreas Wahl bravely demonstrates how water slows the trajectory of a bullet down, once fired from a submerged gun, by standing directly in front of it. The science behind this experiment is explained succinctly in the video’s description:
It’s harder to create movement in water than in air, because water molecules are closer together than air molecules. To show the difference in resistance, physicist Andreas Wahl puts himself in front of a weapon submerged in water and fires it – on himself.
Here’s the critically acclaimed short film The Chickening which, due to it’s highly successful debut at last year’s Fantastic Fest, is now available to all, thanks to YouTube.
The Chickening is a ‘classic film remix’ from the warped mind of Nick DeBoer which you can watch in it’s full surreal, f**ked up glory above.
So this is really fucking awkward.
In a month when high profile black actors and actresses rightly boycott the Oscars in protest over Hollywood’s lack of diversity, a white European actor has now been cast to play the role of one of the most famous Black American singers in history.
Apparently Joseph Fiennes has been cast as Michael Jackson in a British film about an alleged road trip he took with Marlon Brando, and Elizabeth Taylor directly after 9/11. The story goes the trio wanted to get out of New York so they hired a car and drove to Ohio.
Really? What’s next? Stephen Fry cast as Little Richard? Hugh Laurie to play Nat King Cole? The only way this production can redeem itself in the diversity stakes will be if Caitlyn Jenner plays Elizabeth Taylor and Morgan Freeman is cast as Brando.
Pretty much anyone and everyone has a tipple on New Year’s Eve to celebrate the dawning of another calender year and the prospects it may hold.
Of course not everyone restricts their celebrations to just one drink, in fact many binge and guzzle their way through the evening until they become annoying, loud-mouthed and threatening meat bags of absolute no use to anyone.
The above footage, taken by nightclub bouncer Peter Williams from London, Ontario, demonstrates exactly how annoying drunk people can be.
The patience of a saint.
