Many bears dream of a day when they’re able to shove a human being inside something roly-poly, like a barrel or a tire, so they can roll that screaming human around the woods and show it off to their ursine friends.
Sadly, most bears will never get to experience the joy of rolling a human, but the bear in this clip is luckier than most, and he’s definitely luckier than the poor person in the cube.
This video was supposedly shot as a promo for the Japanese show Sekai No Hate Made ItteQ!, but beyond its use as a promo video it should also serve as a reminder to humans- don’t believe bears when they tell you there’s candy at the bottom of the cube!
The smuggler and the bounty hunter found themselves surrounded by a bunch of jabbering Jawas fully armed and in full force. The tiny wall of well armed guards parted to let the Jawa-in-charge through, who was carrying a case full of clanking contents. As the little boss opened the box the smuggler and the bounty hunter began to recoil, ready to go to war if need be, but what they saw next instantly put them both at ease. For the little boss held a bottle of booze in one hand and a long, skinny glass in the other, and in a croaking voice he said "Mar-ti-ni?"
Buy the world a round of funny with this MAR-TI-NI t-shirt by Skullpy, and you'll be a star among your fellow sci-fi fans!
Sometimes it’s hard to politely remove yourself from a conversation at a party, and the last thing you want to do is make things awkward since you’re going to be stuck in a social situation with the person for a while.
"Whether you’re having a lovely conversation or a crappy one, I think that the way to get out of either is identical," he says. "My approach is to look them in the eye with a big smile and say, 'It’s been so nice talking with you.' And then you just do a hard pivot and you walk away."
If you are hereby emboldened to try Colin's approach, note that the technique needs to be deployed with appropriate warmth and congeniality.
"What has to go with it is being a nice and decent person," says Colin. "When you say ‘It’s been nice talking to you,’ you should probably mean it, and you should communicate that with your eyes and your smile and all that stuff. If you do that, then I think it’s okay."
It’s just nice enough to keep you in a stranger’s good graces and assertive enough that it’ll even work on the Clingers and the Close Talkers.
You'd think a massive Battle Cat who carries a mighty warrior named He-Man on his back would be brave, but poor old Cringer lives up to his name even when he has transformed into a fierce feline battle mount. But when the forces of evil slither down from Snake Mountain and threaten the lives of Eternia's citizens that old scaredy cat pounces into battle with a mighty roar, ready to reduce the bad guys to a bag of bones. Outside of battle, though, that big bad Battle Cat is afraid of his own shadow!

The Slow Mo Guys filled another 6 foot long balloon with water a while back and jumped on it until it burst, but that video lacks the cringeworthiness this stupid stunt has in spades. And seeing Dan sitting there with his head sticking out of a giant watery balloon sac is utterly hilarious!
We all begin life as a seed, we return to the earth when we die, we each have our own distinctive smell, and some people have very pretty faces. In these ways we are a lot like flowers, and life is essentially the same whether you're a plant or a person, we're all just trying to stay fed, be desired and grow. But is our desirability diminished by the thorns we grow to keep the world at bay?
Nature lovers and toughies agree- this Flower Skull t-shirt by AntoFax is one totally fresh design!
From 1983 to 1985 America's video game obsessed youth had a good reason to stay home on Saturday mornings- the Saturday Supercade, an animated series on CBS that featured many of our favorite video game characters.
The legends of the arcade and console were brought to life in colorful 2D animation segments, and when the Supercade hit the airwaves we realized the story behind our favorite arcade games didn't stop at the kill screen.
Characters like Donkey Kong and Frogger seemed fairly slim on storyline in the games, but when they appeared in their own 11-minute long animated episodes kids couldn't wait to watch...and play all the games afterwards!
Leaping in-between cars across a busy intersection was just the beginning for young Frogger, an intrepid reporter for the Swamp Gazette.
Frogger had a crime solving mystery kids vibe and a much deeper storyline than you'd expect given the simplicty of the game, and yet young Frogger still found time to play in traffic in almost every episode.
When Mr. Rodriguez gets up and sings "Love Me Bender" it drives all the fembots wild by blowing their auditory circuits and overloading their heart fluid regulators, all except Crushinator, of course, who always keeps her cool. Bender learned to do the Elvis from an ancient holovid showing some fat guy in a sequined jumpsuit sweating his way through some really moldy oldies, but now he's cooler and drunker than that guy ever was! It's good to be the Kingbot...

He chose to portray the perfect enemy, one The Doctor failed to take down, and before Calvin had time to prepare a suitable defense the tiger sprang his trap. Hobbes tried to maintain the don't blink dynamic in their imaginative game, but the urge to become a pouncing angel was too much to resist...
Bring some geeky fun to your wardrobe with this Pouncing Angel t-shirt by Cheeky Designs, it's the most imaginative mashup this side of Gallifrey!
No matter where you stand on the topic of sexism in pop culture one thing is for certain- the female body is most often portrayed in an idealized form in visual media such as comic books and video games.
Sometimes this idealized form ties in well with the character, like when the character is an athlete in peak physical shape, but a lot of times they’re just drawn that way because creators think it will help them sell their product.
It’s not meant to be a slight against “average” women, and yet it’s hard to deny the impact these unrealistic body shapes have on young women.
I agree with some of the makeovers but I don't think they put enough thought into the characters they chose for the project, because why would a Special Forces officer/pit fighter who trains constantly be overweight?
Presupposing angels are real, and not just mythical beings, I wonder what an angel would look like if it fell to earth?
Would it look like a human with wings, as they are most often depicted, or would it resemble something far more disturbing and alien? Whoa, what if angels are actually aliens?
Allow your eyeballs to consider this hyperrealistic sculpture by Beijing based artists Sun Yuan and Peng Yu as you mull over that canonical conundrum, and you’ll soon find yourself faced with another dilemma- do you find this sculptural figure attractive or repulsive?
This facial expression and emission of sound from our mouths (and sometimes nasal cavities) we call laughing makes perfect sense to humans, heck it can even be contagious, but laughing is lost on most animals.
Tools are created with specific jobs in mind, which is why you wouldn’t try to saw a brick in half with a drill or hammer a screw into place, but when you think outside the toolbox you find many more ways to put those tools to work.
Looking to shorten a bolt and leave a clean edge?:
“If you need to shorten a bolt, let your drill do the hard work. Spin two nuts onto the bolt, tightening them against each other. Then chuck the bolt into the drill and hold a hacksaw blade against the spinning bolt. The nuts help to steady the blade and clean off burrs when you unscrew them.”
Need to cut a length of PVC pipe which is already mounted? Use a string to slice that pipe while it stays in place. Does driving hooks into wood hurt your hands? Drive 'em in with a wrench, and save your mitts for a future career in hand modeling!

The Dark Crystal is, without a doubt, one of the best puppet movies ever made, and even though CGI has taken over people are still blown away by the practical effects created for this film.
It’s one of those iconic films that can never be effectively remade or rebooted, and yet this film almost didn't make it to the big screen due to poor feedback from preview audiences. Jim Henson spent $15 million dollars making sure the film got the chance it deserved in theaters, and The Dark Crystal turned around and made a whopping $40 million at the box office.
A lowly sum by today's movie standards, but enough to keep The Jim Henson Company in the filmmaking business.

California is currently being rocked by one of the worst droughts in the state’s history, and with the drought comes changes to the way we humans live while nature goes on doing what it does best- adapting.
As certain resources dry up others become more plentiful, like the increase in cute little kittens due to the fact that warmer days are ideal for feline breeding.
It used to be really hard to explain to people how visual effects software can reduce the signs of aging on an actor’s face, but nowadays we’re exposed to a lot more behind-the-scenes footage that shows how it’s all done.
And yet this video by visual effects artist Rousselos Aravantinos is still amazing to watch, even if you’ve seen similar stuff in the bonus features section of a DVD, because the subject seems to lose twenty or more years right before your eyes.
It's called digital cosmetics, and it's the part of post production that keeps stars looking young and vital even when they're well past their prime.
But before you and your significant other decide to cosplay together you should think about what your costumes are saying to those who bear witness to your public displays of affection.
Because when your cosplay as Joel and Ellie from The Last Of Us, a middle aged man and a fourteen-year-old girl, and you start making out people who have played the game are liable to lose their lunch.
And if you're a giant guy with a little pixie of a girlfriend cosplaying as The Hound and Arya Stark may seem like a great idea, but you're going to look mighty pervy when you lean down to give young Arya a kiss!

We continue to integrate computer technology into cars in hopes of making them more efficient, more autonomous and so they feel more like home while we’re on the road, but progress isn’t always a good thing.
It seems the smarter the car the easier it is for a hacker to completely shut that car down, and as Wired writer Andy Greenberg discovered finding your smart car has shut down on the highway is utterly terrifying.
In this instance Andy’s 2014 Jeep Cherokee was purposely shut down by hackers Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek in order to prove a point, but imagine how hackers will wreak havoc on the highways in the smart car future.
This smart car security test has raised many eyebrows and left people wondering- how good is a smart car if it can be killed so easily?
When you’re in prison you may find yourself forced to do whatever it takes to survive, and when you don’t have any regular weapons handy you’re forced to improvise.
Prison personnel try to stay vigilant about rooting out and eliminate anything that can be used to craft a cutter, sticker, strangler or shooter, but cons are crafty. They prove that necessity is the mother of invention by crafting deadly weapons out of whatever’s handy.
You’ve probably heard about a toothbrush or broom handle shiv but incredibly some guy made one out of toilet paper.
There’s nothing like a group of violent racists marching down the middle of the street to ruin a town’s day, but when the mean marching is accompanied by the soothing sounds of the tuba sousaphone their cause becomes a big joke!
A group of KKK members hit the streets in South Carolina to spread some hatred, but they didn’t know a crafty sousaphone player was waiting to ambush them with a suitably campy soundtrack. Excelsior! (May contain NSFW language)
