This is a video from St. Petersburg, Florida of a construction crane working on the new St. Petersburg Police Department headquarters deciding it’s constructing days are over and throwing itself to the ground, sending workers running for their lives. Thankfully, nobody was injured, although if I were there I would have faked my own death and moved to the tropics. “Why?” For a new start with Elvis and 2Pac.
This is a video of Colin Furze discussing how to build an Alexa voice-activated flamethrower, then testing the one he constructed. Apparently Colin loves fire ALMOST as much as I do. I stress almost though because I am the number one lover of fire. “Why don’t you marry it?” Because why buy the cow when I can get the milk for free? “You’re saying you have sex with fire.” I don’t kiss and tell but we don’t kiss, only bone.
This is a video of Youtuber James Nelson setting an upright piano on fire and playing it until it dies/the smoke is too much for him. Personally, I would have kept playing it until I caught fire myself, but that’s just me and I’m a true performer. Also, Billy Joel clearly missed the opportunity to play a burning piano in the video for ‘Piano Man.’ “Yeah, or maybe ‘We Didn’t Start The Fire’?” You’re such a one-upper.
This is the helmet cam footage from motorcyclist Malik Elizee of an accident that almost sends him to meet his maker after a Camaro runs a red light and t-bones a couple cars. Mailk ends up hanging onto the bottom of a Toyota RAV4 that’s been flipped on its side and sliding halfway through the intersection. Then he immediately runs off the road (smart) and into the grass to celebrate not being dead. I know that feeling — I celebrate not being dead every morning I wake up. It’s going to be weird for my girlfriend the day that I don’t.
This is a video from Sushiya no Nohachi in Tokyo, which has become famous for its tiny sushi (each piece is made with a single grain of rice). The tiny sushi platter (which includes a piece of toro (tuna), tai (sea bream), chūtoro (medium fatty tuna), hokkigai (surf clam), uni (sea urchin), tako (octopus), tamago (egg), and gari (pickled ginger)) is free provided you buy at least $50 of regular-size sushi, although the chefs will only prepare the dish a few times a week, and only five per day). Has it ever made anyone cry? I’m glad you asked!:
This is a video from Nantong in the Jiangsu province of China of an electric trike cart that hit-and-runs a motorbiker, only to be chased by three good Samaritans, one of whom rams the cart until it flips on its side, preventing a getaway (it appears the hit-and-runner tried ducking down a one-way alley and had to turn around — a clear sign someone hasn’t played enough Grand Theft Auto). Man, if only every hit-and-run ended this way, the world would be a better place. Unfortunately they don’t, and, as of the time of this writing, the world remains a shithole.
