Leaping 3-fingered Touchdown Catch May Be the Greatest Completion of All Time

Nov 24, 2014 By Abraham 4

Yesterday, New York Giant Odell Beckham, Jr. made a catch that will be featured in highlight reels for decades to come.

It’s already unlikely that a pass thrown from midfield will result in a touchdown. Add to that a defender’s interference and the fact that this pass was thrown several feet over Beckham’s head and this seems like an impossible catch.

But he was able to leap and get a couple fingers on it…and that was all he needed.

Immediately, the announcers began hailing it as a catch that will go down in history…

Australian designer and gamer Jerome Wilson was playing Call of Duty a while back and not having a very good game. He was about to quit when he heard another player start singing. The other player, apparently unaware that his mic was on, sang the entirety of Coldplay’s song “Fix You.”

Wilson continued to play enjoying the “odd beauty of the moment” and then perfected it by adding the song’s instrumentation and posting it for us to see, too…

This Is the Hell You’ll Get If You Use a Flash at a Ryan Adams Concert

Nov 21, 2014 By Abraham 2

Musician Ryan Adams stopped a recent show midsong to deal with a constant problem: Flash photography. People have no idea how serious this is for him…or why.

He suffers from Ménière’s disease, an incurable and potentially debilitating inner ear condition. In fact, he took two years off from music several years ago because he couldn’t play due to the disease’s effects.

With therapy and carefully controlled conditions, he was able to return to the stage, though not without a fair amount of trepidation. Because one of the things that sets him off is flash photography, and how could he possibly avoid that from a stage?

Despite trying to ban flashes at his shows, there’s always someone who will ignore the request. In this clip, Adams deals with one such rule-breaker and in no uncertain terms tells her exactly what her camera flash is doing to him…

What If Darth Vader Was a Bible-thumper?

Nov 21, 2014 By Abraham 0

Obviously, Darth Vader is an extremist. One could even make the argument that he is a religious extremist. As such it would be fair to say that he is a kind of fundamentalist, though obviously not of any religion we’re used to seeing fundamentalists from.

But what if his extreme devotion were toward a faith we’re more familiar with…

Nov 21, 2014 By Abraham 0

Adam Sandler has made a few good movies and a few duds. But regardless of his films’ successes or lack thereof, they all tend to be…similar. One might even go so far as to say they’re formulaic.

Can You Recognize These Classic Cartoons Just by Their Skeletons?

Nov 21, 2014 By Abraham 0

What if our favorite cartoons from yesteryear were real creatures and all their exaggerated, comical features were a part of actual bodies?

This is what artist Hyungkoo Lee imagined when he created these cartoon skeletons for an exhibit at Basel, Switzerland’s Natural History Museum several years ago.

And as he crafted these, he didn’t simply just stand them there, but put them into action, just like we saw them on Saturday mornings. It is both fun and fascinating to see how much energy and personality are still there even though all we can see are their imaginary bones…

Could an American Crowd Do What These Canadians Did When the Singer’s Mic Cut Out?

Nov 20, 2014 By Joey White 1

When NHL teams from the US and Canada face off, they sing the national anthems for both countries before the game, regardless of where the game is being played.

For Tuesday night’s Toronto Maple Leafs game against the visiting Nashville Predators, the microphone kept cutting out during the singing of the US national anthem before finally going completely dead.

Without missing a beat, the Canadians jumped right in to finish off their southern neighbors’ anthem…

Do you think this would happen in reverse at a game in the U.S.?
