Attempting to recap George R.R. Martin's entire epic series A Song of Ice and Fire in two minutes is an extremely tall order, but Slacktory host Nick Douglas was so sure he was up to the task that he let the camera roll and went for it.
He failed, of course, but Nick did manage to become so lost in his stream-of-thought ramblings that even people who have read the entire epic series will struggle to make sense of it all, thereby confusing everyone into believing Nick has actually read the entire series.
Nick’s video contains spoilers (kinda), so if you live in fear of Game of Thrones-related spoilers you may not want to tune in. Otherwise, enjoy watching Nick flounder!
Paul looks reasonably amused by the kid's candid shot, while Warren looks like he's either going to wave for the camera, or shoo the kid away.
Apparently Paul had a concert that weekend in Lincoln, Nebraska (thanks Lou!), and Warren still lives in Omaha in "the same modest home he bought in 1958 for $31,500" (thanks Miss C!), so it looks like rare moments like this may happen often in Omaha...
There's something different about that willy nilly silly old bear, he suddenly doesn't seem so cute and cuddly anymore. What happened to Winnie? Was it something the bees were putting in the honey, or did he get ahold of some of Tigger's stash? Whatever the case, the residents of that wood measuring one hundred acres had better watch out, because it looks like Pooh has a hankering for more than honey!
Your favorite childhood bear is all grown up thanks to this Fuzzy and Cuddly t-shirt by Anthony Moreno, sport this shirt around town and you'll scare the roo out of every piglet you see!
He might be considered nothing but an outdated console these days, but back in the day B was a cutting edge gaming/computing device, and those who owned an original MO console spent way too much time playing games like King of Ice and Space Princess Adventure on him. But if you're lucky enough to come across an old console like B power him up and be nice to him, because he can also be one heck of a good friend!

Not all mighty pirates look all that mighty in person, some look like total fops with bushy blonde hairdos, white blouses and sassy red sashes wrapped around their waists. Looks don't mean much when you're uncovering the secrets of an island called monkey, and the undead don't really care what you look like, so give Guy a chance, don't just brush him off! In fact, if you sit with him for a spell and listen to what he has to say you may learn a thing or two about adventuring.

That boy Calvin loved to play with his stuffed tiger all day, every day, going on imagination adventures around the neighborhood and occasionally getting into a bit of trouble. Then one day his imaginative romps took a bad turn, and he started breaking things all over the neighborhood like a little thug. Soon he was pretending to be a character he called "Heisenberg", and his stories took a violent turn, resulting in the disappearance of the neighbor boy...

Back in the day when the boombox ruled the block, cassette tapes were the best way to keep your jams ready to pop in the deck when it was time to get down. There was one problem with cassettes, one thing that made them impractical, and that was dealing with unspooled tape. When the tape deck tried to eat your cassette, and the ribbon came spilling out of the spool, you had to pull out your trusty pencil and wind it all back up again if you wanted to get on with the dance party!
Share a little old school ingenuity with the world by wearing this Back in the Day t-shirt by Boots, so the younger generations understand the struggle we used to go through to listen to our music.
Harry wasn't like the other boys- he didn't want to play the day away outside, he preferred to stay indoors and continue his studies, and he'd always had really good taste in music. One day his school of wizardry was set upon by giant spiders from mars, and young Potter's knowledge of Bowie albums became an asset, as he cast a Ziggy Stardust spell and zapped them all into oblivion!

It's easy to get so caught up in your own life that you start thinking of yourself as the center of the universe, but when that happens just remember- you're an insignificant speck of dust in a vast universe full of beings thinking the world revolves around them too.

The battlefields of World War II were a mighty dangerous place, unless you were accompanied by an inglourious group of basterds handy with a rifle, knife and baseball bat. These misfits were led by a wildman nicknamed "The Apache", a guy who believes the best way to kill Nazi scum is with lots of practice...

Do you ever feel like you work for an evil mastermind who is hatching a despicable plan to take over the world?
If you answered yes then you’ll probably relate to the giant construction minion in this photo- he's working hard for his supervillain boss and loving every minute of it!
Minions aren’t generally known for their fine workmanship, so whatever this guy helps build will probably come tumbling down in a day or two, but at least he delivers service with a smile. BEE-DO-BEE-DO-BEE-DO!
Some humans love to live life on the edge, performing death defying stunts and risking it all for an adrenaline rush.
We’re used to seeing people performing crazy stunts, so they don’t look quite as crazy anymore, but when you see elephants, giraffes and ostriches performing the same stunts they suddenly look totally crazy again!
Of course, the creators of these clever ads for France 3 didn't really make elephants jump out of an airplane, or walk on a tightrope high above the city streets- these fantastic adverts were created with a little help from CGI software and a bit of zoological imagination.
Want to take your totally 21st century business back to the glory days of the 1990s? Then you gotta keep it old school by replacing your boring rectangular business cards with some fresh round Business Pogs.
They’re a game of some sort, a cool conversation piece and a business card in one, and when you’re done with them you can throw them away-just like the original pogs from the 90s!
Not sure if this is some genius level marketing or a horrible way to advertise yourself, also not sure if this site is a joke or for realsies despite their claims that "This is a real product and real site!", but one thing is certain- nobody will ever forget you if you hand them a pog business card!
The live action hero in a half shell legacy began in 1990 with the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, which many fans believe to be the only worthwhile movie in the franchise’s history.
Even fans of the comic book loved the film when it first came out (which used to be a rare occurrence), and even though it looks campy compared to today's standards there's something inherently charming about characters created with practical effects rather than CGI.
No wonder the TMNT were so charming- their suits were created by Jim Henson's Creature Workshop, and it's said that Jim was rather upset with the amount of violence in the movie.
That on-screen violence was the same reason Playmates Toys decided not to release a toy line featuring characters from the movie, even though they were already releasing the Ninja Turtle toy line based on the animated TV series.
This pregnant cosplayer is a lovely shade of green, which is apparently just the way Captain Kirk likes his ladies, and her costume brings to mind one rather geeky question- how many gals across the galaxy have fallen for that patented James Tiberius charm?
Once the travel video has finished implanting a travel bug in your neurochamber make sure you visit The Galaxy Getaways site, where you can learn about all the adventures that await you on the abandoned planet Morag, or the best thing to order when you visit the renowned restaurant Gluborg's on Xandar, "a peaceful paradise in the stars". Bon voyage!
Those who have chosen to uphold the law don’t always succeed in bringing criminals to justice, and sometimes they fail so spectacularly that the criminals slip right through their fingers, leaving people to wonder how they could have escaped so easily:
There are 21 Terrifying Criminals Who Are Still On The Loose according to this Cracked user submission compilation, 21 nefarious no-goodniks who managed to avoid prosecution for their crimes, and for most of them that's where the terrifying part ends:
Don't get me wrong, there are many bad guys on the list who deserve to be called "terrifying", but they're lumped in with thieves, hackers, and fixers of baseball games who hardly live up to the terror title.
However, there are enough true crime tales in this collection to pique the interest of the avid armchair criminologist, despite the somewhat clickbaity title, and you won't believe how easy it is for some people to dodge the long arm of the law!
He’s the shy little pig with an extremely pronounced stutter, and even though he was typically cast as a sidekick (and the fact that he doesn’t wear pants) he became one of the most beloved Warner Brothers cartoon characters of all time.
Every WB cartoon fan has tried to do the Porky Pig stutter at one time or another, but Mel Blanc is a difficult voice act to follow unless you know how to p-p-p-prop-p-perly st-stu-stu-stutter like good ol’ Porky himself:
Let voice actor Bob Bergen, who incidentally knew Mel Blanc and may have picked up a few pointers from him, show you how it’s done so you can wow toon fans and s-s-st-stu-...talk funny just like a cartoon superstar!
Capybaras are the largest rodents in the world, Rafael "Rafa" Nadal Parera is one of the largest tennis stars in the world, at least in terms of popularity and the fact he's an eleven time Grand Slam tournament champion, and thanks to the ridiculousness of the internet we are shown Capybaras That Look Like Rafael Nadal:
Despite their large size, their big, gnashy teeth and stout build capybaras are very gentle critters, preferring to take a swim and lay around on the shore all day rather than running around town causing trouble.
Capybaras look like they'd be quite comfortable to sit on, provided you don't mind sitting on a soggy rodent, and despite their semiaquatic nature they don't stink because their wiry fur and lack of an undercoat keeps them stench free.
Since they're one of the least stinky animals living in their native habitat capybaras have become rather judgmental towards other critters, which inspired the creation of a Tumblr site called Capybara Is Judging You:
Where does all that capybara attitude come from? It stems from the fact that they're internet famous, of course!
They live a life of privilege, which some non-capybaras feel is an injustice, so a site featuring photos of posh capybaras living the good life was created, complete with colorful commentary, called This Is Capybara Privilege:
It's clear the internet adores the look of the majestic capybara, and the trend of capybara adoration (arguably) began with one Tumblr with an explicit name- F%#@ Yeah Capybara:
The Last Starfighter was the story of a guy who escaped trailer park life by becoming really good at an arcade game- his epic high score got the attention of aliens who were in need of a hero, and a generation of kids who grew up loving video games were officially hooked by this dream come true premise.
When The Last Starfighter came out in 1984 arcade obsessed kids just couldn't get enough, but most of us knew very little about the movie except for what we saw on the screen, and the fact that Atari promised us a Last Starfighter arcade game but never delivered.
The Brooklyn based illustrator has clearly lived a full, and occasionally a bit drawn out, life and thus has some pearls of knowing howness to share with the comic loving world:
With everyday life situations constantly rearing their ugly heads, like being invited to the first backyard BBQ of the year, or when you go to a wedding and then nurse a hangover the next day, it’s good to know that Christie has simple, illustrated solutions readily available for our eyeballs to view.
Christie may be young in age, at heart, and in last name, but her illustrated words are just as true as if they’d come out of the mouth/pencil of an old person.
Chucky was brought down to the station for a lineup and was surprised by what he saw- a pinhead, a leather faced man and some psychos wearing masks, an evil clown, a candy man, and a puppet headed squirt. But the one he hated most, the one who made him want to scream, was that guy by the name of Krueger he'd seen once inside a dream...

Like many tough yet tiny guys there's a giant lurking inside of Goku, an incredible beast just waiting to come out and play, and when he lets it out the earth trembles beneath his feet. Those who marvel at him transforming from a small boy with a tail into a massive hulk of a gorilla beast are terrified, but deep down he's still that silly little boy who loves nothing more than to balance on a ball and practice his dragon style techniques.

When one is passing between dimensions via projected portals it is customary to do so while walking in a very silly manner, so as not to offend those who reside in the Python dimension. If you should meet a man named Monty on your trip through the aperture just remember- his house looks like a flying circus because he doesn't get very many visitors...

He was tired of playing second fiddle to his bros super platformer star status, and the once all play and no work Luigi was starting to crack up.

When Darth agreed to star on that show about the orange side being the new black, he had no idea filming it would involve being incarcerated in a space prison for three seasons and a colorful change of wardrobe. Still, he really needed the credits, since his long lost offspring keep popping up out of nowhere, and since he was currently at war with his former friends on the council locked up was the safest place to be.
Take your geeky wardrobe directly to jail with this The Orange Side t-shirt by Laughing Devil, featuring a unique mashup sure to make sci-fi fans smile!
