[John Coulter's WEIRDEST LOCK ON EARTH!!] (Viewer #1,542,687)
[Lego The Hobbit in 72 Seconds] (Viewer #200,720)
Technically, it contains spoilers if you haven’t read the book, since the third movie’s not out yet.
On the bright side: no Radagast the Brown – live-action Jar-Jar of wizards.

On Ebola, CDC director Thomas Frieden said “we’re confident that we won’t see a large number of cases from this”.
Don’t worry, the government has it under control. After all it’s not something complicated like, you know, rolling out a web site.
First-person-view racing. It’s like the Podracing in Star Wars Episode I except without all the stupid CGI, annoying sound effects, and Jar-Jar.

Step 1: Have a computer do all the carving.
If you want a political metaphor, I suppose we can call it “liberals chipping away at our freedom until they’ve created a world according to their vision”.
Although – let’s be honest – if that were the case, it would end up looking more like this.
[Chainsaw vs. 5 Beers at once!] (Viewer #48,813)
UPDATE: The original video was deleted, but I found another version of the same video.

For those asking “Hey! Where’d the motor go?”, the answer is that it came out the underside of the vehicle. Kinda hard to see with all the dust & debris, but it’s there.
Meanwhile, the question that’s been bothering you for… however many seconds since you read the title of the video:
[Why are Stars Star-Shaped?] (Viewer #733,960)
Excavator is stuck in a ditch. How does he get out?
With painstaking deliberateness…
[YouTube direct link] (Viewer #70,238)
[Wobbly Circles - Numberphile] (Viewer #133,913)
The first part was pretty cool, because I had no idea you could roll 2 circles like that.
However, I got bored & checked out by about 3:30, but if you want, you can hang out & stay for the trig lesson.
“This guy” being Elbert Guillory. I wish he’d run for something national so I could vote for him.
