Some YouTube favorites

Following in the footsteps of Bill Simmons and Curmudgeonly Yours, here are some of my YouTube favorites.

Fat guys dancing are usually funny, but Evolution of Dance proves that even guys who are in shape can amuse.

I wish I could do impressions.

Bas Rutten is a genuine bad ass. Follow his self-defense advice and you will win your street fight. You will also go to jail for a long, long time.

Ann Coulter is a vicious, crazy skank, but Henry Rollins has the cure.

How far would you go for a flying car? (Watch carefully and learn a little-known fact about Einstein.)

At some busy intersections in Japan, they set the traffic lights so all the cars are stopped and all the pedestrians can cross at once, even diagonally. I used to joke that they should try the same thing with the cars and see what happens. Apparently, they actually do that in India.

I point to the Star Wars Kid not to mock him, but because I see his "act" as a pure and innocent celebration of life. It's unfortunate that kids his age are generally too stupid to see that and apparently harassed him into psychiatric care as a result of this video.

Speaking of Star Wars, surely nothing could be more fun than two nerds fighting with light sabers, unless maybe it's two kung fu guys fighting with light sabers.

Comedians constantly make fun of George W. Bush's supposed lack of intelligence, but of course they must be exaggerating. After all, no genuinely stupid person could possibly become President of the United States.

This is why I love the internet. I love the way anyone with a couple hundred dollars, a lot of spare time, and tons of creativity can create art out of garbage like Diet Coke and Mentos and share it with the entire world.
