David Tennant And Jodie Whittaker (The 10th and 13th Doctors) Judge Homemade Doctor Who Costumes

David Tennant And Jodie Whittaker (The 10th and 13th Doctors) Judge Homemade Doctor Who Costumes

This is a video from The Late Late Show With James Corden starring the tenth and thirteenth doctors, David Tennant and Jodie Whittaker, judging six contestants on their homemade Doctor Who inspired costumes. From what I could gather from the quality of costumes, it appears each contestant was rolled down a hill in a sleeping bag, stripped of anything useful, then given thirty seconds to create their costume. I mean I’d be embarrassed trick-or-treating in any of those costumes, and two years in a row I went as myself with a limp.

The Ol’ Frisbee Around The Empty Pool Trick Shot

The Ol' Frisbee Around The Empty Pool Trick Shot

This is a video of some dude performing a frisbee trick shot that travels around the entire outer edge of an in-ground pool and knocks over a Gatorade bottle. I thought it was just going to delicately twist the cap off the bottle, but I also expect too much sometimes. *girlfriend rolls eyes* I saw that! Still, a pretty cool trick, but you know what an even cooler trick? If you cleaned that disgusting swamp and refilled it with clean water so we could actually go swimming. IT’S A POOL, DAMMIT, NOT A FRISBEE TRICK PARK.

Thanks to Alex S, who agrees with a pool like that, you better watch out for gators.

The First FDA-Approved Prescription Video Game To Help Treat ADHD

The First FDA-Approved Prescription Video Game To Help Treat ADHD

This is a short video demonstration of EndeavorRX, the world’s first FDA-approved prescription video game, developed to help treat ADHD in children ages 8 to 12. Some more info while I hit up my old model airplane glue dealer to see if he’s got any EndeavorRX connections:

The game challenges users to dodge obstacles and collect targets as they navigate icy winter wonderlands and lava rivers, guided by aliens who zip around on flying saucers. The developers say the game stimulates neural systems that are intrinsic to attention function. It also features adaptive algorithms that monitor each patient’s progress as they play, allowing for personalized ADHD treatment.

The decision follows seven years of clinical trials. Over five separate studies, researchers examined more than 600 kids to determine whether EndeavorRx could affect their ADHD symptoms. One such study found that 30 percent of the children “no longer had a measurable attention deficit on at least one measure of objective attention” after playing EndeavorRx for 25 minutes a day, five days a week for four weeks. According to Akili, these changes persisted for up to one month following treatment with EndeavorRx. The most common side effects were frustration and headache, which seem mild in contrast to traditional medications.

Hey — whatever works. I’ve actually been using video games for years to help cure a lot of what ails me, including, and by no means only limited to, the overwhelming pain of human existence. Now *blowing on NES cartridge* if you could just– “I’m not putting that in your butt.” I NEED MY MEDICINE.

Driver Forgets To Put Vehicle Into Neutral For Car Wash, Rear-Ends Tesla

Driver Forgets To Put Vehicle Into Neutral For Car Wash, Rear-Ends Tesla

This is the footage from a Tesla’s rear-facing camera of a Nissan SUV whose driver failed to put their vehicle in neutral for the pull-along car wash and rear-ends the Tesla. Some more info while I wonder if *putting cool-guy shades* the Nissan driver mistook this for the EXPRESS wash:

“I was getting my car washed in my Tesla Model 3. It was a conveyor model wash that pulls your car through and you put your car in Neutral. The car behind me did not do that and drove straight through and into the back of me. The back of my Tesla had minimal damage, approximately $2k worth, while the front of his Nissan SUV looked a bit worse. After the accident, I went and got Raising Cane’s for lunch.”

Um, what does going to go get chicken fingers afterwards have to do with anything? Wait, is this — IS THIS JUST A VIRAL AD FOR RAISING CANE’S CHICKEN?! Goshdang you know it worked too because I just used their store locator to see where my nearest restaurant is for lunch but it’s 3.5 hours away so I guess it’s just *snapping into wiener* cold hotdogs and sadness instead.

Video Of Chili’s Classic ‘Baby Back Ribs’ Jingle Being Recorded

Video Of Chili's Classic 'Baby Back Ribs' Jingle Being Recorded

This is a video of the recording of Chili’s enjoy-having-it-stuck-in-your-head-all-day ‘Baby Back Ribs’ jingle.  Some more info while I demand my dogs treat me to Chili’s take-out for dinner tonight since it’s Father’s Day weekend. They’ll refuse, and I’ll be drunkenly burning Totino’s Pizza Rolls in the oven by 8PM:

Singer Alvin Chea of the a capella band Take 6, shared original footage of himself (“I want my baby back, baby back”), Louis Price of The Temptations (“barbecue sauce”), and Willie McCoy aka Wolf Johnson (bass) performing the tasty iconic jingle for Chili’s Baby Back Ribs. After the first take, a lively discussion took place about how to say “barbecue sauce”.

Surprisingly, apparently the creator of the jingle, advertising creative director Guy Bommarito, was actually worried the song would be considered his greatest achievement in life. Ha! Like a mere mortal could even dream of achieving anything greater without inventing the time machine or free energy. Get real, ‘Baby Back’ Bommarito!

Keep going for the jingle, and an interview with Guy.

Real Products That Exist: The Lime Bomber, For Finger-Free Mashing Lime Wedges Into Beer Bottles

Real Products That Exist: The Lime Bomber, For Finger-Free Mashing Lime Wedges Into Beer Bottles

Because nobody wants a complimentary case of coronavirus with their Corona, this is the Lime Bomber, a $20 product for mashing lime wedges into beer bottles without a mess or the use of your friend’s grubby fingers. I was skeptical at first, but the Amazon reviews don’t lie — apparently it’s a quality product. Per verified purchaser EMESKAY:

Unbelievable how great this contraption works. I want to drink more beer just so I can put limes in the bottle with my Lime Bomber.

Pfft, I want to drink more beer even without the added fun of getting to put limes in bottles. But what do I know? I’m just a man who’s already on beer number two this morning. “Try four, dear.” Hoho, looks like somebody spotted my empties in the shower!
