Big Lazy Robot serves up this mindfully amusing video on how we’re mindlessly amusing ourselves. The firm pokes a little fun at all of us, but before you get your hackles up, BLR reminds everyone to take a chill pill:

One of the new features of the iPhone 5S is that it can shoot HD video at 120 frames per second. Basically that means we have a slow-mo HD video camera in our pockets.
So what are we going to do with it? Create profound and moving art? Hello people. This is the internet. Most of it is going to be backflips and dogs shaking and explosions. But there are a few people using it for more artisitic purposes, too. (On Vimeo, of course.)
Here are 12 cool examples of the new feature…
