OK, how many fake names can you catch here? You may have to watch twice, especially during the anniversary section, where they dropped the middle initials. This kind of thing happens all the time in broadcasting. Continue reading for more examples, plus some real names that are just as good.
Seinfeld may have been about nothing, but there was plenty in it... pop cultural references, recurring themes, self-referential jokes, and auxiliary characters. Now you can relive all that silliness in this artwork from Kiersten Essenpreis. There are 99 things about Seinfeld to find in this. If you can't identify them all, there's a reference key.
Channel 4 (not to be confused with 4chan) presents The Great Sperm Race. Your goal is to beat the other sperm to the egg without getting caught too long in the sticky walls of the vagina. Besides the utter silliness of it, the game is HARD! Maybe I'm just not cut out to be a sperm. If you're in the UK, you can follow a link to a TV show that inspired this, but I can't.
The town of Vulcan, Alberta has spent the last couple of years trying to bring the premiere of Star Trek XI to their village. The problem is, they don't have a movie theater! See how this is working out as the opening date nears.
Remember Afro Ninja? Of course you do! He's the stunt man who fell spectacularly in this audition. That video led to internet fame and then to a movie for Mark Hicks. He tells how the video changed his life in this interview.
The space shuttle Discovery launched from Cape Canaveral on Sunday with a stowaway -a bat hanging on the outside of the external fuel tank! NASA had hoped the little guy would fly away before launch, but he held on, even after the engines roared, and held on at least as far as observers could follow.
"He did change the direction he was pointing from time to time throughout countdown but ultimately never flew away," states a NASA memo obtained by SPACE.com. "Infrared imagery shows he was alive and not frozen like many would think ... Liftoff imagery analysis confirmed that he held on until at least the vehicle cleared [the] tower before we lost sight of him."
Officials at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Fla., where Discovery launched from a seaside pad, said the bat's outlook after launch appears grim.
"Based on images and video, a wildlife expert who provides support to the center said the small creature was a free tail bat that likely had a broken left wing and some problem with its right shoulder or wrist," NASA officials said Tuesday. "The animal likely perished quickly during Discovery's climb into orbit."
There were mournful reactions across the internet. Some speculated that the bat with the broken wing dreamed of flying again, and therefore achieved his wish. Others lauded the bat for flying further than any other bat. He will go down in bat history for his bravery and stubbornness. In any case, he left this world in grand style. It wasn't long before a tribute was produced.
Yeah, the NCAA tournament is a lot of fun, as long as you aren't a University of Kentucky fan. I can't recall the last year the Wildcats weren't in the Big Dance. Folks are moping about in my hometown, trying to make themselves into Louisville fans at this late date. But rooting for your favorite team doesn't hold a candle to participating in tournaments. Three online tournaments that have nothing whatsoever to do with basketball will be determined by your votes.
You've got to hand it to Samsung, they are the masters of getting free ad space by producing killer videos. As far as this one goes, it's complete BS, but the finished product made me laugh out loud all by myself.
