Solar Orbiter Provides Closest Yet Video Of The Sun’s Corona

Solar Orbiter Provides Closest Yet Video Of The Sun's Corona

Captured by the European Space Agency’s Solar Orbiter, this is a closer-than-ever-before video of the sun’s outer corona, highlighting some of its features. My corona? It has a lime wedge in it. A beautiful video though, isn’t it? It makes the sun look so warm and inviting, like it would be a great place for a picnic. Then I remember it’s actually an insane 3,600,000°F burning ball of plasma, and the only people who should picnic there are my enemies, which they totally should. Or if that’s too far to take a flying f*¢k to I heard hell is also quite nice this time of year.

City Makes Man Build Fence To Hide Boat, He Has Realistic Replica Of Boat Painted On Fence

City Makes Man Build Fence To Hide Boat, He Has Realistic Replica Of Boat Painted On Fence

Artist Hanif Panni’s neighbor got a letter from the city of Seaside, California, stating he had to build a fence to hide his boat from view from the street. So what did he do? What anybody who hates local government would: asked Hanif to paint a reproduction of the now partially hidden boat ON the fence. Damn the man, that’s the message here. It’s a good message too, not like the sticky note I just found on the fridge saying we’re out of milk, AFTER I already poured a bowl of Cookie Crisp. I can’t eat them dry! Not a whole bowl anyways. Oh who am I kidding.

Taking Ball-Less Golf Swings In Garage Still Goes Horribly Wrong

Taking Ball-Less Golf Swings In Garage Still Goes Horribly Wrong

This is a video of a golfer taking a ball-less practice swing in his garage when he accidentally breaks the club head off and sends it through a neighbor’s car window. That sucks. I mean he was doing everything right, and things still went wrong. Story of my life! I mean minus the doing the everything right part. Or anything right, really.

LEGO Releasing 3-Foot Tall Eye Of Sauron Tower Build Set

LEGO Releasing 3-Foot Tall Eye Of Sauron Tower Build Set

Dropping June 4th, the LEGO Lord of the Rings: Barad-dûr build set contains 5,471 pieces, which, if assembled correctly according to the instructions, result in a 35.2″ tall recreation of Sauron’s dark fortress, complete with Eye Of Sauron on top. If not assembled correctly, you may end up with a sprawling 8″ angular turd. The set includes five interior rooms, as well as Frodo, Sam, Gollum, Gothmog, Sauron, Mouth of Sauron, and several orc minifigs. The Eye Of Sauron is battery operated and lights up, and the set costs $460. *spit-takes elf blood* $460?! I don’t have that kind of money! “Not with how much you spend on elf blood.” Hey — how many other 800-year old warlocks are there with skin this soft? Because the very few others that I know look like a mummy’s butthole.

Mutt Absolutely Smokes Agility Course At Westminster Dog Show

Mutt Absolutely Smokes Agility Course At Westminster Dog Show

Very appropriately named Nimble the “All-American” dog (read: mixed breed, mutt) recently destroyed the competition in the 12″ class of the Masters Agility Course at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Nimble beat the times of over 350 other dogs to become the first mixed breed to win the competitions. He will not be the last though. At least not until robot dogs start taking home all the medals. Keep going for the video, which includes commentary by some super excited announcers. There’s no way that one dude wasn’t hoarse the next day. My throat hurts just listening to him.

What Different Singers Might Sound Like Falling Down The Stairs

What Different Singers Might Sound Like Falling Down The Stairs

Because everyone is kept up at night haunted by different questions, this is a video from Dustin Ballard of There I Ruined It imagining what different singers might sound like falling down the stairs. He uses vocals from their songs to make the sound effects, and at the end he plays them all at once, which is extra glorious. PLEASE NOTE: this is not the video to listen to if you have a headache or are prone to headaches. So, who took the best tumble? I vote David Lee Roth by a landslide. Speaking of — no Stevie Nicks?
