A Very Smart Snake

2 Jun

Nature is amazing. If you are unconvinced, check out this neat explanatory gif sequence pulled from the late, great Futurama and if you are… not… un…convinced, I recommend this video for further proof that you are right in agreeing with me.
Whew.
Okay, this is a video of a snake who wants to eat birds. Birds want to eat worms. This snake sits PERFECTLY STILL and then very subtly wiggles the end of its tail as though only a small part of it was alive and aware and a worm. It’s disturbing.
And great.

Ween—The Golden Eel

2 Jun

I have discovered my favorite band recently, which is kind of a shame, because they broke up two years ago. Anyway, they’re called Ween, they do all kinds of crazy nonsense, and their two best records are “The Mollusk” and “Quebec,” in my humble opinion. Here’s a great cut from the former, called “The Golden Eel,” about, um, a Golden Eel. I don’t know. It’s strange. If you’re interested in prog rock or guitar, they’re definitely for you. They also have a really funny, borderline obscene country & western record called “12 Golden Country Greats.” It has 10 songs on it, including one really virtuosic number called “Piss Up a Rope.” That’s kind of all you need to know.

This cat loves this vacuum cleaner. The best part is when its face kind of gets sucked down into the tube and it gets longer and stranger.

Monster Putty Eats Magnet

18 Apr

So this guy mixed iron filings with Silly Putty and it turned the Silly Putty into a MAGNET-CRAZED EATING MACHINE. And I recommend watching the time-lapsed video. Honestly, I’d watch just about any time-lapse video.

Sneaking, sneaking, sneaking… not so much.
