It used to be common practice to ask people for a jump start when your battery died, but nowadays people usually just call roadside assistance and let them handle the process.
But if you’re one of those DIY minded people who like to know what your options are when it comes to jump starting a car battery then you should check out this video by Mehdi Sadaghdar for ElectroBOOM.
That moment of death is the focus of this amazing animated short called “Coda”, by And Maps And Plans Studio as directed by Alan Holly. The art style is beautifully simplistic, the animation is top notch, and the story will truly sweep you away! (Contains cartoon nudity)
When asked to give a profile of the powerful Sith Lord known as Vader, the Imperial scribe had this to say- "He has a lot of deep, dark stuff going on under that shiny helmet of his". The darkness that envelops Darth is blacker and inkier than the deepest depths of space, and although he's the star of the Empire's campaign of galactic subjugation he's got more than war on his mind. You can't force Vader to reveal his secrets, nor will he ever admit to being in a state of emotional turmoil, but if you know where he came from, and what turned him in to the wicked man he is today, it's easy to see why he walks on the dark side of life...
Bring home some seriously cool sci-fi flavor with this The Dark Side t-shirt by inkOne Art, it's the ultimate way to add some wicked attitude to your geeky wardrobe.
Candy loving kids have been known to chew a pack of gum at a time, and if they have artistic inclinations they might turn that chewed up wad of gum into something shapely, like a small sculpture or sticky multi-colored ball.
The gum Maurizio uses in his works has not been chewed, it's unwrapped and melted into "layers of usable material" which is then applied to a plaster or fiberglass mold to help stabilize the sculpture's shape.
Pop culture tells us that spies are the most smartly dressed agents in the field, and they always look good whether they’re embroiled in a gunfight or disguised and deep undercover.
But the truth is many spies looked downright goofy when they went undercover, especially those who spied for the East German secret police and intelligence service, aka the Stasi.
It's said that East Germans could spot a Stasi agent a mile away thanks to their ridiculous outfits and terrible acting, and yet nobody dared say a thing lest they be dragged away and executed for causing trouble.
A book released by Simon Menner in 2013 called Top Secret: Images From The Stasi Archives reveals the Ostalgie inducing styles worn by undercover Stasi agents, who apparently believed the best way to avoid being pegged as a spy is to dress like a sterotypical spy.
The police composite sketch, created with the help of an eye witness, is often the first step in catching a criminal.
But witnesses who have a fuzzy recollection of what the perpetrator looked like may end up contributing to a sketch that looks nothing like the accused, and therefore isn’t much help to law enforcement.
It’s not always the witnesses fault, sometimes the sketch artist is simply lacking in illustration training and ends up drawing a gnome instead of a human perp.
And then there are those spot on sketches that manage to perfectly capture both the look and the attitude of the criminal, the drawings that set the standard for other composite sketch artists.
Even though that war in the stars between Imperial and Rebel forces took place a long, long time ago you rarely see that ancient setting addressed in the movies. It's all clone troopers, droids and starships, but where are all the dinosaurs? Turns out Lucas thought the movies wouldn't do as well with troopers riding raptors, so they swapped out the dinosaurs for speeder bikes and AT units and the rest is movie history!

There was something seriously wrong with the new batch of Good Guy Mickey dolls being shipped to stores nationwide, and parents were about to learn that toys aren't always child's play. It seems an angry programmer named Charles Lee Ray had written the code for the Mickey chip, and this cutting edge piece of technology caused the units to turn from tickle mode to terror mode whenever kids pulled their strings. As for why the Mickey Good Guy dolls came with a knife as an accessory, well that's anybody's guess!

Mad Max fever is sweeping across the globe, but for some the blood of the Road Warrior has been flowing through their veins for decades.
These fans who dream of driving across the wasteland, looking for trouble in a souped up vehicle bristling with weaponry and attitude or, better yet, hitting the highway in Max’s mighty Interceptor muscle car.
A diehard fan named Dale Walter decided to make his own post-apocalyptic dreams come true by turning a 1972 Australian Ford Falcon into the badass muscle car that first drove Max into our hearts back in 1979.
As Dale demonstrates in this video from Barcroft Cars, the Interceptor has a movie accurate horn and siren, a 351 Ford Cleveland engine that purrs and growls like a panther, and enough screen presence to star in its own Mad Max movie!
Some of our favorite pop culture franchises feature a vehicle prominently in the storyline. Whether it’s the funky machine used to get to the next mystery or one super stylin’ way to go back in time, these amazing stories wouldn’t be the same without a cool vehicle.
