People often cringe at the thought of a balloon bursting, and some people get so freaked out when a balloon pops near them their fear is dangerously close to becoming a full-blown phobia.
But judging by the stunts they've done in the past The Slow Mo Guys have no fear of balloons bursting, and Dan is so into balloons he's willing to hang out inside a giant water balloon while it bursts.
It's probably best if those who have globophobia don't watch this video, but everyone else should celebrate the start of summer by watching this stupid stunt video!
Bad movies far outnumber the good, but to earn the title "worst film of all time" you've gotta really smut it up, leaving viewers feeling forever unclean by taking trash cinema to the bottom of the heap.
As far as I can tell The Lonely Lady isn't quite that bad, since it doesn't include gratuitous gore, racism, animal abuse or any of the other trashy elements filmmakers love to include to shock the audience.
But the film does include Pia Zadora as an aspiring screenwriter who gets literally and figuratively screwed by showbiz, and Ray Liotta appears as a rapist in one of his first roles.
According to Christian McLaughlin of Dangerous Minds The Lonely Lady is smutty enough to make audiences feel dirty after watching, but his grandma actually bought him a ticket to the movie back in '83 so how bad can it be?
Now, nearly 34 years after its initial release in theaters, The Lonely Lady is available on Blu-ray from Shout! Factory so you can decide for yourself whether it truly is "the worst film of all time".
But, in case you're still wondering what to expect, here's a taste:
8. Pia’s brilliant writer character is named “Jerilee Randall.” Jerilee Randall!
7. Jerilee’s attempt to get her indecently too-old, impotent and obscenely hairy-backed husband hard by cooing “Gently, gently”.
6. Instead of the luscious bi-sexy babes of Cinemax, the lesbos here are all repulsive predatory gargoyles, like the long-breasted bikini-clad matron in the hot tub who purrs the horrendously looped pick-up line “It’s wonderfully relaxing!”
5. The lesbian Italian movie star (who tricks Jerilee into a threesome with her toad of a husband) is cross-eyed, but her nipples point in different directions, too.
4. Post-threesome, Jerilee is so disgusted with herself she showers with her clothes on and promptly suffers a nervous breakdown.
3. The best nervous breakdown scene EVER, in which the keys of Jerilee’s typewriter become the faces of her tormentors, before rising from the keyboard into a swirl of mocking sound-bytes and cheesy shattering optical effects.
Have you ever woken up after a vivid and realistic dream to find you can't get that dream out of your head?
Those memories of our time in the dreamlands are so clear they almost feel real, and even though our bodies never leave the bed our dreams take us to places so realistic we feel like we actually went there in person.
True wildlife enthusiasts like to make sure there's something animal related to do wherever they go on vacation, and these days it's not hard to find small nature reserves and sanctuaries that allow guests to visit with their animals.
But if you adore animals and you're looking for places to add to your bucket list then you should make your way to Phuket, Thailand so you can have lunch with the elephants at the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary:
Phuket is home to an ethical sanctuary where you can observe and feed the elephants as they roam and do as they please. Being able to watch, understand, and respect the majestic beasts as they go about their day is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
If Thailand is too far away and elephants aren't your jam then perhaps you'd rather head north to Hudson Bay, which is near the town of Churchill, Manitoba, so you can see polar bears in the wild.
Known as the “polar bear capital of the world,” Hudson Bay near the town of Churchill, Manitoba, is the gathering place of hundreds of the cuddly-looking creatures every autumn. You can book a tour in a tundra buggie where you’ll be able to observe the bears up close while they hang out and wait for the sea ice to refreeze so they can get their seal-hunting back on.
But if one species of animal isn't enough to earn a spot on your bucket list then you must pay a visit to Kruger National Park in South Africa, where you can see all kinds of critters, including the Big Five:
Kruger National Park is home to the Big Five: elephant, lion, rhino, leopard, and buffalo, and a plethora of other magnificent mammals, birds, and reptiles. There are a wide range of safari options available, but no matter which one you choose be sure to have your camera constantly at the ready. You never know when a casual herd of rhino may wander by!
So far Kylo Ren hasn't been the most interesting Sith in the Star Wars universe, and his angsty and whiny personality leaves a lot to be desired.
Kylo's so annoying, in fact, that the whole thing may be an act used to drive his enemies crazy and get his captives to confess. Maybe he's perfecting some sort of whine-based ASMR technique to use on any Rebel scum he captures?
World 1-1, aka the first level in Super Mario Bros., is one of the most iconic levels in video game history, and even those who have never played the game know how the level looks.
Mario comes bouncing in, smooshes a Goomba then starts punching bricks, discovering tiny Mario can't break through the brick blocks until he eats a mushroom that makes him tall.
This iconic level has been recreated by artists and game designers many times before, but this is the first time World 1-1 has been recreated in augmented reality, allowing designer/coder Abhishek Singh to play in Central Park.
It can be hard to tell when a friend is using you, or when they're using the friendship to get close to someone in your social circle, because manipulators will play the game as long as needed to get what they want.
But it's easy to tell when you've got a true friend in your corner, because true friends are willing to bend over backwards to make each other happy.
It's not like you expect your true friends to bend over backwards for you, but a true friend knows when you need a boost and doesn't expect a medal when they help you out.
Wil Wheaton has had to come to terms with the fact that no matter what else he does as an actor he will always be known for playing Wesley Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation.
But at least he's known for playing a good role on a legendary show, so he can be proud of the role he's best known for, and Wil has definitely embraced his TNG past and ain't afraid to revel in his gloriously nerdy roots.
A few years back he was reunited with the original sweater he wore on the show back in 1987, and now he has been reunited with Wesley's actual uniform from the show.
It doesn't fit, but it sure was cool to see and hold Wesley's acting ensign uniform for the first time in 30 years. pic.twitter.com/C4sJDThyWd
IKEA furniture has become an essential part of many homes, and since pretty much everything they sell is extremely affordable people are filling their homes with IKEA's household goods too.
Customers like the price but they also like the simplicity of IKEA, which is something the Swedish company has strived to bring into our lives by making it simple to furnish our homes with easy to build furniture.
So since they're known for their simplified assembly instructions IKEA Canada and marketing company Leo Burnett created Cook This Page- a set of illustrated recipe posters people can actually use to cook a meal.
All you have to do is fill in each blank on the page with the proper ingredients, roll the recipe page up with the ingredients inside and pop it into the oven. Now you're making dinner the IKEA way!
It's hard to tell little dogs are descended from wolves just by looking at them, but when they get mad and turn into a savage little barking beast their wolven ancestry comes shining through.
It must be hard for little dogs to keep the wolf inside them in check, because everywhere they go people want to pet them and gush over how cute they are.
However, their cuteness allows them to get away with a lot, including face-licking, jumping, barking, laying on the bed and pulling on the leash during a walk, because there's no curbing a little dog's enthusiasm!
Emily Larlham runs the dog training business Dogmantics Dog Training in San Diego, California. She is known around the world for her popular Youtube Channel ‘Kikopup’ where she has posted over 200 free in-depth dog training tutorials. She believes that by putting out free training tutorials that don’t involve any forms of physical or psychological intimidation, it will not only effect how people treat animals but also how people treat other human beings.
It's not always a bad thing for a movie or TV series to leave us with a head full of questions, and it can be fun to speculate and answer these burning questions by imagining our own storylines that solve the mystery.
But many of these mysteries already have answers that were included in the show so subtly viewers may have missed it- like the mystery of why a film crew is following around Dunder-Mifflin employees:
Shortly before the events of The Office, a Dunder Mifflin employee committed suicide. This was revealed during the show's second season. In the episode "Performance Review," Michael Scott cleans out a suggestion box that's been gathering dust for years. In the box is a suggestion from a man named Tom that the office should provide better counseling for depressed workers. Michael doesn't know who that is, and so another character mimes blowing her brains out.
That's why the camera crew is there: A man killed himself, and the filmmakers wanted to document how his friends were dealing with it. The really sad part is that no one really seems to care. According to the writers, Ryan the temp was hired almost immediately after Tom's suicide, because death or no death, Dunder Mifflin is a business that cannot shut down, or even slow down, just because someone lost a battle with depression. Huh, you know, maybe The Office was more realistic than we gave it credit for.
Another enduring pop culture question that has an answer- why didn't the Good Witch tell Dorothy she could use the ruby slippers to return home if she supposedly knew the whole time?
That's because the book features two Good Witches- Glinda, the Good Witch of the South and Locasta Tattypoo, the Good Witch of the North met by Dorothy in Munchkin Country.
In the book Locasta tells Dorothy how to use the ruby slippers, since Glinda doesn't have a clue about the shoes, but in the movie the Good Witches were merged and an inconsistency was born.
It's the story that has been told a billion times- cute (and typically blonde) princess is kidnapped by evil magic user who plans to use magic to destroy the princess for being "too good". In the end the princess is saved by the handsome prince and the evil magic user is banished or destroyed.
It's the most common premise in the world of animated fairy tale adaptations, and yet there are plenty of ways to play with this clichéd storyline.
For instance- focus on the wicked vixen instead of the boring power couple, and turn the whole thing into a death-themed cautionary tale.
Comics and illustrations that hold a mirror up to society really appeal to me, partially because they can be an effective catalyst for change but mostly because they're so frank they make the people they're referencing uncomfortable.
It's also quite brilliant when a comic artist can actually pinpoint something stupid in our society that we can all agree is stupid- like the fact that money matters can kill a friendship.
Colombian illustrator Sako Asko draws up strange panels populated by ordinary people and object which reveal the absurd nature of life on Earth in an equally absurd manner.
Nature documentaries are tame and soothing to watch when narrated by Sir David Attenborough, but when Snoop Dogg narrates a nature doc the whole thing goes wizzild!
In this installment of Plizzanet Earth with Snoop Dogg from Jimmy Kimmel Live Snoop provides narration for that classic clip featuring an iguana running from a bunch of snakes. It's high-larious! (NSFW-ish language)
Bobby Hill may not be the most physically attractive, physically fit or physically capable kid in Arlen, and he ain't exactly a smartypants neither. But there is no wiser or more tuned in kid than Bobby Hill, Texas's answer to the Dalai Lama.
Okay, that may be overstating it a bit, Bobby's more like Buddha, Pooh Bear and Curly from the Three Stooges all rolled into one lovable cartoon character.
And yet Bobby Hill seems so real, like someone we've all known and cheered for as they take on the world, unafraid to be an adorable oddball in a world full of bullies.
Nintendo doesn't just make games and consoles that change our video game lovin' lives- they make consoles that are built to last a lifetime, and it's not uncommon to hear about gamers who own NES consoles that still work.
And now with the release of the Switch they've changed the world of gaming once again, giving us the hybrid console of the future we didn't know we needed.
Along the way there were some misses like the Nintendo GameCube, later improved by the Panasonic Q, which was basically a GameCube with remote that can play DVDs.
The Q was only released in Japan and was a commercial flop, so Nintendo discontinued it two years after it was released.
There is still one thing I've always wondered about the NES and the original Japanese version the Famicom- why didn't the NES have cool controller holders like the Famicom?
The 1990s are back in a big way, but did they ever really go anywhere? It's not like we stopped liking all the rad stuff we liked back in the 90s, so maybe we should call it a resurfacing rather than a revival.
Either way, if you're a fan of all things 1990s then you're going to love the NeatoShop, because we have so many 90s themed t-shirt designs it's bananas!
The 1990s introduced us to some great friends, like that crazy cat and dog dude who live next door
Animals who play instruments on purpose are cute, and some of them seem to have genuine musical talent, but it's even cuter when a critter accidentally plays an instrument because they don't know what it is.
Security cameras caught this video of a black bear breaking in to the Vail, Colorado home of Katie Hawley, and the scene was not very fun or amusing to watch at first.
Sometimes when we're dressed to impress, looking good and feeling fine we project an air of success that people mistake for actual success and fame, which may make journalists take notice.
A few years back a professor from Fordham University named Lyn Slater experienced the effects of fabulousness emissions when she was noticed by a photographer while she waited for a friend near Lincoln Center.
This was during Fashion Week, so journalists were out in full force covering the event happening at Lincoln Center, and when they saw Lyn they felt sure she was a fashion industry bigwig:
“The photographers surrounded me and began taking pictures,“ recalls Lyn. ”Two Japanese journalists began asking questions. Tourists started gathering and taking videos and photos on their phones, thinking they had come across a major figure in the fashion industry. I was confused, but it was at that moment that my friend arrived, and we started laughing at the situation. She said to me, ’Wow, you’ve unexpectedly become a style icon.’ “
A post shared by Accidental Icon (@iconaccidental) on Mar 8, 2017 at 5:39am PST
Now the 63-year-old professor is also a professional model represented by Elite London and she has her own fashion blog called Accidental Icon, where she teaches young people "age is not a variable" when it comes to looking good.
You don't have to be a total rebel to know stupid and incredibly outdated laws are made to be broken, and in times when the powers that be keep trying to make laws to limit our personal freedoms it's time to resist.
Photographer Olivia Locher wants her rebellion against dumb, antiquated laws to be on the record, so she created a series called "I Fought The Law" which illustrates how utterly moronic these laws are.
At the top we have Alabama's law against having an ice-cream cone in your back pocket, above we have Ohio's law against disrobing in front of a man's portrait, and below we have Oklahoma's crazy law against people making love to their cars.
Lawmakers have way too much time on their hands if they think these laws need to be on the books!
People have made all kinds of comics, short films and cartoons about the mighty Link and his quest to save Hyrule, and they're all great fun to check out- but they're also all missing a little something.
So which magical element of the Legend Of Zelda games do the artists paying homage to the games nearly always forget to include? The activity I spend hours doing every time I play a Zelda game- smashing pots for rupees.
Animator Callegos Yavolitak created this fan film for the pot smasher in all of us, which focuses on the greatest pastime in Hyrule and shows us we're not alone in our obsession to destroy and collect gems.
Natural camouflage works so well it even hides creatures from our scrutinizing human stare, making it really hard to tell whether that's a tree bark colored owl or a chunk of tree bark pretending to be an owl.
