Shut Up

Miami Woman Pulls Over Police Officer

Miami Woman Pulls Over Police Officer

“The Reason I Pulled You Over Today… “

We have all seen it. No lights, no siren, no warning and whooosh, a patrol car blows right by you. One should hope that they have a reason for doing so but are the lights and sirens not to be used when such reason exists?

Some might argue that the woman in the video below is crazy, bent or simply has too much time on her hands. Watching the video, one could also conclude she is just fed up.

Regardless of why this woman put some serious effort into catching up with an officer, she claimed travelling about 100 mph, attempting multiple times to get his attention.  Look what happens when she does.

Huge Windmill Fireworks Display

Huge Fireworks Display

Another don’t try this at home

When Colin Furze hit 2 million YouTube subscribers, he celebrated big time. A huge whirling, spark-throwing, and exploding big time way.  He created a windmill-like fireworks display. I admit, he got one more subscriber with this stunt… me. While I am not going to try it, I will sure watch it.

I admit that I love fireworks. I could not count all the old SLR time lapse photos of them I have in a photo box. The video after the break is off the hook. The 120 firework pin-wheel is pretty impressive.

The Simpsons Perform Edgar Allen Poe, The Raven

The Simpsons – Edgar Allan Poe – The Raven

Seems The Simpsons did a version of The Raven.  The video has also become a suggestion for educational curriculum. I am of the school of thought that education can also be entertaining. I had a physics professor who embraced the idea of entertaining while teaching… more on him later. Once again, I found this at Open Culture. I like the idea of using this video of The Simpsons presenting The Raven as an educational tool.

Additionally, the video is worth the watch and anyone can enjoy it. It is right after the break, check it out.

English: Sparklers with a slow shutter speed of 4 seconds. Taken new years eve 2008 in a public park in Dover Heights, New South Wales. I got my young cousin to stand as still as possible whilst rotating both sparklers in a circular motion (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

This is one of those “don’t try at home” items. What happens when you cram 10,000 sparklers into a bucket and then light them?

Honestly, I love fireworks of all types.  As long as I know they are going to go “bang”, they don’t trip off my PTSD.  One could debate whether one would need to be a pyro to attempt such a stunt.  However, I think most of us would want to, at a safe distance, witness 10,000 Sparklers all burning at once.  I confess that I sure want to see it. However, being aware of the fire risk, I doubt I would foster the courage to actually attempt the stunt on my own.  Lest not forget the fact that a huge plume of sparks and fire would certainly lead to fire, police and arrest in my urban neighborhood.
