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.
Here’s some incredilble footage of a firework display from the unique angle of a drone.
The guy who took this footage was running the risk of having his drone rig destroyed by getting right into the middle of the fireworks display, but thankfully the risk paid off.
WARNING: NSFW footage.
Gump Studios have produced a seamless mash-up short featuring James Stewart, from Alfred Hitchcock’s classic Rear Window, as a paranoid man surrounded by characters from Stanley Kubrick’s most famous films.
The Red Drum Getaway is a surreal vision of what happens when distinct cinematic universes collide.
The Simpsons has been on air now for 25 years and to celebrate such an achievement for an animated show one artist has created his very own version of the iconic opening credits.
Yoann Hervo has put together what can only be described as a subversive nightmare by transforming the usual light and breezy intro to The Simpsons and turning it into an 80s, VHS themed apocalypse, which fits perfectly for this time of year.
