More YouTube favorites

It's been a couple months since I posted YouTube favorites, so here are some more. (The ones with asterisks have some "bad language" in them.)

If you put a Mentos in Diet Coke, it makes a fountain. Some people can make art from this. (I listed this one last time, but that version was taken down, and it was at the end of the list anyway, so maybe not many people saw it.)

If I had to choose, I think I'd rather live in a country whose basketball players can't defend the pick-and-roll than in a country whose basketball players can't do 720° dunks.

One thing you'll notice if you watch a lot of Chinese and Japanese action films is that, in contrast to the American hero who must always fight fair even with the odds against him, Asian heroes have no qualms about teaming together and outnumbering the enemy. Sometimes, in fact, they can be downright abusive.

Of course, I can't really blame them if that monster was as obnoxious as Darth Vader.

"I love you more than bears love honey, I love you more than Jews love money, I love you more than Asians are good at math." OK, I don't love her quite that much, but I totally have a crush on Sarah Silverman.* I wonder if I'd have a chance with her. I'm not Jewish, but I am circumcised....

Whenever life is bringing me down, whenever I feel sad or troubled, the Hoff is always there to cheer me up.

All Your Snakes Are Belong to Us* is probably better than the actual movie Snakes on a Plane (but I won't know for sure until S.O.A.P. is in the $1.50 movie theater and I see it). It's better than the trailer, anyway.

It's always kind of fascinating to watch traffic accidents, but when people get crashed into and then jump up and yell at the other driver, it's just plain funny.

When even the Hoff isn't enough to cheer me up, there's still Apache.

Magic is creepy.


  1. Why do I have the time to watch all of these?

    Must get hobby.

  2. I hear blogging is a nice hobby...

  3. It's a thin line between hobby and obsessive/compulsive behavior.

    I'm still laughing at the safety glasses the guys wore in the Diet Coke/Mentos experiments. I wonder how long it took them before someone suggested, "dude, let's get some protective eyewear."

  4. That Apache video was a favorite at my former place of employement to entertain. They even played it on the big screen projector in the conference room for everyone's delight. It just so happened we had an employee who looks just like they "lead singer"


What do you think?
