The Guinness World Records series Spotlight posted the official video showing Muhammed Rashid of Pakistan as he claims the world record for “Most Walnuts Cracked Against the Head in One Minute” at a head-crushing 150 nuts. Rashid performed the incredible feat on February 26th, 2014 at the Punjab Youth Festival where more than 30 Guinness world records have been broken in the last three years. Rashid’s record crushed the previous one which was set at only 44 walnuts.
Bob Saget appeared on the Paul F. Tompkins web series Speakeasy, where he voiced a segment called “America’s Filthiest Home Videos.” When Bob Saget hosted America’s Funniest Home Videos, he frequently did voiceover to add or replace voices in the video clips. Tompkins parodied this tradition by asking Saget to add voices to videos of a cat playing Jenga, a cliff diver, and a man dancing while he cleans. The primary difference being that Saget wasn’t limited by television censors and was allowed to be as filthy as he wanted to be.
“America’s Filthiest Home Videos” was an additional segment from the show. Tompkins and Saget had a longer conversation in the full episode.

Silhouetted figures walk in the clouds and play on rooftops in the delightful silhouette art of Spanish artist Pejac (see previously). He creates his figures in cut paper or acrylic paint, applying the art directly to windows. The windows are then photographed at a precise angle for the final effect.

Dave MacLean, who is Centre of Geographic Sciences GIS Faculty at Nova Scotia Community College in Canada, has created an interactive map of images captured by astronauts from Expeditions 40 and 41 on the International Space Station (ISS). Specifically, the map includes images by astronauts Alex Gerst and Reid Wiseman as well as cosmonauts Maksim Surayev and Oleg Artemyev. Each image was pulled from tweets made by the astronauts and cosmonauts. The map also includes the position of the ISS with a one-minute delay.
