Host John Oliver tackled nuclear weapons on a recent episode of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. Specifically, Oliver called out Americans for being woefully uninformed on the state of their country’s nuclear armament.

America has over 4,800 nuclear weapons, and we don’t take terrific care of them.
It’s terrifying, basically.

Breaking Bad 18in Teddy Bear

ThinkGeek has released a life-size replica of the iconic pink teddy bear from AMC’s popular television series Breaking Bad. The teddy bear, which is available to purchase online, made its most memorable appearance on the second season of the show when it fell out of a downed 737 plane, landed in Walter White‘s swimming pool, and lost its eye.

The pink teddy bear. So innocent and also so aptly representative of that plunge from innocence that Walter White takes. It’s the perfect iconic prop from Breaking Bad. Fans will immediately know what it is. Non-fans will wonder what the heck you did to your poor teddy bear and make a mental note never to give you plush as a gift.

YouTube archivists WDTVLIVE42 have unearthed “Threading the RCA Projector”, a 1950s instructional film showing viewers the proper way to operate a 16mm projector. The film, which was was produced by the State University of Iowa, is “one in a series on the use of audio visual equipment.”

To rewind the film after a showing, bring the end of the film to the feed reel and attach it. Wind counter-clockwise a few turns to take up the slack. Turn the rewind lever to rewind. Turn on the projector switch and let the projector run until the film is rewound.

Mega64 has created a funny and “100% real” live-action Dragon Ball Z movie trailer that is “no joke.” The group was asked by FUNimation to make a special trailer that would help promote their release of the upcoming anime film Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, which hits select theaters on August 5th, 2014. The guys at Mega64 gladly accepted the challenge and funding from FUNimation, but did something totally off-track from what the production company wanted.

http://laughingsquid.com/?p=411761

“Marilyn Myller” is a stop-motion animated short by British artist Mikey Please that stars comedian Josie Long as the titular protagonist who experiences some extreme frustration while attempting to create animation of her own.

A year in the making, the full six minute stopmotion short features the voice of Josie Long, one zillion hand carved tiny things, literally tens of carved foam puppets, two eye fulls of in-camera, long-exposure light trickery and a pair of tiny dolphins, smooching.

The team behind the short has also created a time-lapse video of some of that creation process.

Los Angeles photographer Ian Wood flew a quadcopter outfitted with a GoPro through Downtown Los Angeles to find some beauty in the more visually stunning buildings and artworks of the area, including the Arts District and Chinatown.

Above the grit and noise of the street, downtown Los Angeles quietly provides some of the most amazing visual detail in its buildings and public art works. This is a selection of those buildings and public arts filmed across some 50 different locations in the immediate downtown area and the arts district. There are many many more locations that are not included and are equally if not more impressive.

http://laughingsquid.com/?p=411765

The five Denmark-based members of The Bottle Boys recently performed a cover of the Turkish song “Simarik” by Tarkan live at a crowded bazaar in Istanbul using bottles as instruments. We’ve previously written about The Bottle Boys and their impressive covers of famous songs.

This time we are taking you to the beautiful city of Istanbul, where we just performed at a big festival. The morning after the concert we decided to make a really special video in a big bazaar, because of the great atmosphere. We wanted to play the Turkish song Simarik (which also has been translated to english at some point – here the song was named Kiss Kiss), because of its cool groove and because it allowed us to experiment even more with bending the bottles.

Video of World Record-Breaking 804 Handclaps in One Minute

http://laughingsquid.com/video-of-world-record-breaking-804-handclaps-in-one-minute/

http://laughingsquid.com/?p=411740

Chicago singer-songwriter Bryan Bednarek captures the world record for most handclaps in a single minute with 804 — beating the 802 that he achieved last year — in a video posted by musician Rob Scallon. Bednarek has also detailed the extremely specific guidelines set by the Guinness Book for officially recognizing the record attempt.

A ‘clap’ is confined to noises made by an individual’s two palms meeting. At least two qualified and experienced sound engineers, preferably from a university or studio dealing with recording, should be in attendance and monitor the attempt, and take responsibility for determining the number of claps. Two experienced timekeepers (e.g. from a local athletics club) must time the attempt with stopwatches accurate to 0.01 seconds.

A Giant Spirograph That Measures Eight Feet Across and Writes on the Sidewalk in Chalk

Spirograph

Nathan of the craft website HaHa Bird built a giant version of the perennial favorite children’s drawing toy Spirograph made out of wood that measures eight feet across and creates familiar geometric patterns on the sidewalk in chalk.

The idea for this project came about at a craft show in December when a friend of mine had a little trouble with a laser-cut Spirograph we found. I teased her about her apparent lack of fine motor skills, then had the idea to make a Spirograph that only required gross motor skills. How big could I make a Spirograph?
