Shorter Hobbit

[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.

How Many Digits in a “Large”?

Sunday, October 19, 2014 12:00 pm

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.

How to Make a Globe on a Lathe

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.

[Risk] (Viewer #3,110,930)

Personally, I really liked the part about Abraham Wald (3:23), because I wouldn’t have thought of the thing he thought of, and I admire people who can out-think me.

Slow Motion Crash Test

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.

No, Seriously, You Can Connect Two Circles and Roll Them

[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.

Homemade Raiders of the Lost Ark

[Raiders of the Lost Ark Opening Scene - Homemade w/ Dustin McLean (Shot for Shot)] (Viewer #17,406)

I like this – not because it’s better than the original – but because it displays that crazy American can-do attitude: “I want to do a shot-for-shot remake of a Spielberg blockbuster, but my budget is spare change and pocket lint. How can I do it?”

Stirs the heart, it does.

For those who haven’t seen “Raiders” in a long time, here’s the side-by-side comparison video.

And, for the curious, the “making of” video.
