Guy Builds An Impressive Infinity Mirror Electric Guitar

Guy Builds An Impressive Infinity Mirror Electric Guitar

In dream it and you can achieve it news, this is a video of guitar maker Burls Art constructing and playing an infinity mirror electric guitar. The result is pretty impressive, although when I showed it to Thanos he says he still prefers the gauntlet. Could you even imagine playing an infinity mirror guitar WEARING the infinity gauntlet? You wouldn’t even have to be any good, people would pay just for the spectacle. Of course you would be good because you’re wearing the infinity gauntlet, which allows you to do whatever you want, and I doubt you’d want to suck. Have we already given this more than enough thought? I think so.

Florida Man Uses Ford Mustang As Pickup Truck To Haul Fencing, Pipes

Florida Man Uses Ford Mustang As Pickup Truck To Haul Fencing, Pipes

Florida Man: if he’s one thing, it’s resourceful. If he’s two things, it’s resourceful, and dead at any moment. This is a shot of Florida Man hauling a pickup truck’s worth of fencing and metal pipes in, on, and around his Ford Mustang. I particularly like the blue power strip he’s using to help secure the pipes near the front wheel, as well as what appears to be a blender strapped to the car right behind it to keep the pipes at a safe distance from scratching the paint on his ride. And, despite the pipes clearly dragging in the back, I think it’s overall a solid hauling job, and I give it 4 out of 5 gators, two snapping turtles, and a warm 24-ounce can of Budweiser.

Thanks to my dad, who agrees there’s a little bit of Florida Man in all of us.

AI Ball Tracker For Televised Soccer Game Keeps Drifting To Ref’s Bald Head

AI Ball Tracker For Televised Soccer Game Keeps Drifting To Ref's Bald Head

Because it’s called artificial intelligence and not artificial genius for a reason, this is a video from a recent Scottish Inverness Caledonian Thistle FC soccer club game where the AI operated ball tracker keeps drifting to the head of a line ref with a bald head. As far as artificial intelligence goes, I’ve got the feeling this one might need to repeat a grade. Some more info about the incident:

As part of efforts to increase social distancing and protect its fans, a couple of weeks ago the Scottish Inverness Caledonian Thistle FC soccer club announced that it would be live-streaming all home games at its Caledonian Stadium to season ticket holders or those wishing to watch a specific game through a pay-per-view service. As part of the initiative, the club also revealed that it would be replacing human camera operators with a new automatic camera system from a company called Pixellot that leverages artificial intelligence to track the ball on the field and automatically keep the important action centered on screen.

Could you imagine all the rabid Iverness fans trying to watch this live-stream and the camera continually drifting away from the action to a ref on the sideline? I mean soccer fans are a whole different breed of crazy, and I can only imagine the number of chair legs and wall patch repair kits that were sold the next day.

Awww: Kid Asks If Dragonfly Is A Baby Helicopter

Awww: Kid Asks If Dragonfly Is A Baby Helicopter

Kids: they say the darndest things. And in the case of my nephews, usually loudly and when I’m trying to watch a show or take a nap. This is a short video of a precious little boy in West Virginia (my home state — hit it, John Denver!) asking if a dragonfly is a baby helicopter. Admittedly, not a bad question. Of course it doesn’t take an adult to know dragonflies aren’t baby helicopters, but full-grown spy machines hatched by the government to spy on swamp witches and steal their magic.

Metro Train Derailed 30-Feet In Air Saved By Giant Whale Tail Sculpture

Metro Train Derailed 30-Feet In Air Saved By Giant Whale Tail Sculpture

Because sometimes truth is stranger than fiction, this is a video from a metro station outside Rotterdam in the Netherlands of a train that overran the stop and came to a rest some 30-feet in the air atop a giant whale tail sculpture, allowing the driver to exit the train to safety. The sculpture, created by artist Maarten Struijs in 2002 is appropriately named, and I kid you not, ‘Saved By The Whale’s Tail.’ *brain explodes in a cloud of cobwebs and old TV commercial jingles*

The metro driver was reportedly able to free himself from the train without injury after the incident shortly after midnight on Monday morning. There were no passengers onboard.
Maarten Struijs, who made the sculpture of two tails emerging from water beneath the elevated metro line, said he was surprised the sculpture had held together.
He said: “I could never have imagined it that way, but it saved the operator’s life. The damage is an afterthought.
“I am amazed that it is so strong. When plastic has stood for 20 years, you don’t expect it to hold up a metro train.”

That’s nuts. Even more nuts? That there aren’t failsafes in place that prevent this sort of thing from ever happening in the first place. I just assumed everything was super automated with tons of safety measures. What is this, the 1950’s? Have seat belts been invented yet? Art saves lives, that’s the real message here.

Half-Life’s G-Man Remakes The Talking Heads ‘Once In A Lifetime’ Music Video

Half-Life's G-Man Remakes The Talking Heads 'Once In A Lifetime' Music Video

Presumably in his infinite down time waiting for the development of Half-Life 3, this is a video of Half-Life’s G-Man performing a shot-for-shot remake of the Talking Heads ‘One In A Lifetime’ music video. The video, which was actually created by Youtuber CoreyLaddo over the course of four months, is spot-on. So, if you were every hoping to see G-Man perform the Talking Heads’ ‘Once In A Lifetime’, congratulations, today is your lucky day. And, if you’re one of my coworkers and were hoping to see a selfie of me in my underwear playing video games that I meant to email my girlfriend as a joke but accidentally CC’d the entire marketing department, today is also your lucky day, just check your inbox. But please, no falling in love. I was once involved in love triangle that quickly escalated into a hexagon, then even quicker down to a single point sitting at home alone every weekend.

Keep going for the video, as well as the original for comparison.

Thanks to Joe Soap, who agrees as far as once in a lifetime events go, winning the lottery would be a great one.
