Senior Citizen on a Bottle

I have no idea who this guy is, but his performance is impressive for his age. The youtube info only says that he's a performer in Nuremberg's Christkindlesmarkt. The video was uploaded in December 2006.

"New," that is, for 1957.

God Bless America - World Series 2012

I would expect that everyone who watched the last game of the world series 2012 has seen this but for those of you who missed it here it is in all it's glory.

Normally, I would show a lot more respect for our troops in uniform but, seeing how this is a batch of zoomies, and they laid it out there all by themselves, they've got it coming.

Decomposition of a Pig Underwater

Back in Jan 2009, I posted a video showing the decomposition of a pig. Here's a similar video, also showing the decomposition of a pig, but underwater this time. It was an experiment conducted in Feb 2012. The pig was in a cage to stop sharks from getting to it. Watch to the end to see the surprise visitor.

3D Bioprinter

3D bioprinters are being developed that could manufacture medicines and vaccines according email specs from their basic components. They could be used in pharmacies and perhaps even homes to print out refills. More 'replicator' science.

Monster Mash Senior Lip Dubbing

Happy Halloween!!

If this performance doesn't scare you, just file it away until you are old and in a "senior living center".

This is the webpage for "memory care" at this facility, which I think means Alzheimer's, conveniently priced at only $298 per day, plus the $103,000 refundable entrance fee.

At least I have something to look forward to, and it ain't that far away.

I hope my kids find me a place where I can do YouTube videos.

I like the choreography and costumes. What's your favorite part?

Why do the bad kids always seem to be having so much more fun than the little angels?

There are only eighteen illustrations in this old book, but each one a gem!

Read them here.

Chicken Poop Bingo

The rules are that players bet on a 54-number grid. Then they wait for a chicken to poop somewhere on the grid. So it sounds more like Chicken Poop Roulette, than Bingo, since you don't wait to get a bingo. According to the Wall Street Journal, the game was invented in a New Orleans bar during the 1980s. There's also a version that involves cow poop.

Cleanse The Palate

Cleansing the palate is just basically clearing the taste of one thing from ones mouth before tasting something else to get a truer idea of the second flavor. Can you guess what UK Chef Heston Blumenthal uses to cleanse his plate between tastings?
