TSA makes super WTF video of most unusual items confiscated in 2017

TwitterFacebook

The most unusual find at the airport might just be the Transportation Security Administration’s video of confiscated items.

Curtis Robert “Blogger Bob” Burns, who works for the TSA, hosted the video list again this year and included his bizarre takes on why someone would want to fly with a face tenderizer, a deadly looking fidget spinner, or a rifle-shaped umbrella. 

The added graphics and sound effects enhance the experience — hear from Mr. Death himself, who left behind his scythe!

It’s a real list, however, with items like a creepy grenade animal sculpture actually found in someone’s carry-on at Albuquerque International Sunport. Read more…

Good.

The 22-year-old Vine star-turned-YouTube celebrity announced Thursday that he is taking a break from vlogging to reflect on his actions after receiving criticism for his Tuesday video titled “We found a dead body in the Japanese Suicide Forest.” Paul has uploaded vlogs to YouTube on a near-daily basis for over a year, garnering over 15 million subscribers.

Dude who ruined the internet with ‘Harlem Shake’ goes after the FCC for making it worse

TwitterFacebook

Baauer’s “Harlem Shake” may have obliterated the internet in 2012, but now the producer is taking on the FCC for using it in a (very dumb) net neutrality repeal video without permission.

The creator of the viral track, which became a 2013 meme thanks to thousands of dancing challenge YouTube videos, has vowed revenge on the FCC and its chairman Ajit Pai. 

“Harlem Shake” was used by Pai and conservative outlet The Daily Caller in a video entitled “7 Things You Can Still Do on the Internet After Net Neutrality,” released after the Federal Communications Commission voted on Thursday to repeal protections for net neutrality. Read more…

The dude about to kill Net Neutrality thinks a dumb video will get you on his side

TwitterFacebook

On the day before he’s set to vote down Net Neutrality rules, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai wants to calm your fears about the dark future he’s about to unleash.

He did that with a really stupid video. 

On Wednesday, with the help of conservative outlet The Daily Caller, Pai released a video entitled “7 Things You Can Still Do on the Internet After Net Neutrality.” While the title speaks for itself, it doesn’t quite capture the sheer stupidity Pai unleashes. He’s all too ready to let people know they can still buy fidget spinners and Instagram their food.

What he doesn’t seem ready to acknowledge is the consequences of allowing business interests to exploit what has classically been an open platform of free communication. But who cares! There’s a dog selfie! Read more…

Watch this Mark Hamill ‘Star Wars’ interview – from 1976

TwitterFacebook

A new video of Mark Hamill has surfaced – or rather, an old video. So old, in fact, that it predates the release of the first Star Wars movie.

Hamill and Star Wars producer Gary Kurtz visited WorldCon’s MidAmeriCon in 1976 to talk about their bizarre and ambitious upcoming picture. They’re welcomed to the stage with polite applause which feels far, far away from the echoing screams of Comic-Con Hall H. 

In a Q&A during which Kurtz says he hopes Star Wars won’t be over two hours, where someone asks about “light swords,” and where Hamill pokes fun at his own line “Gee, it’s lucky we had these compartments” and refers to Chewbacca as a “big ape man” (“More like a dog, or a big furry bear with a dog’s nose. Very huggable,” adds Kurtz), what’s truly remarkable is looking back into a room where no one had any concept of how Star Wars would eventually change the world. Read more…

Mom tries out VR, ends up cuddling a doggy butt IRL

TwitterFacebook

While experiencing the thrills of virtual reality, this mom got a bit overwhelmed and reached for her dog to comfort her.

Unfortunately, the VR headset prevented her from seeing the dog, which means she grabbed the wrong end and wound up nuzzling her face into a cute, little doggy booty for a minute.

As the confused dog hangs upside down and the women unknowingly strokes its tush, it’s nearly impossible not to burst out laughing along with the woman’s family members.

Thank you, VR headset. We needed this wholesome moment of joy to distract us from the usual internet dread that’s just part of the bargain when you exist on Earth in 2017. Read more…

Pizza in space clearly means well but looks pretty disgusting

TwitterFacebook

Getting to explore space sounds pretty darn cool, but the experience comes with many sacrifices. Sure, time away from family must be rough, but one of the most heartbreaking losses is having to leave delicious pizza behind on Earth.

Paolo Nespoli‏, an Italian astronaut who’s currently orbiting our planet aboard the International Space Station, missed pizza so much that he boldly brought it up to his boss during a live streamed public event.

The result? Pizza in space. 

According to a tweet from Nespoli‏, his boss delivered the ingredients needed to construct some out of this world pizza pies. Fellow Expedition 53 crew member, astronaut Randy Bresnik‏, uploaded a minute-long video of the assembly process. Read more…
