D.J. wears hearing aids, but doesn’t want to pigeonholed as the “deaf comic.” Unless it brings in more money of course.
Wallace, an adorably accommodating bunny, delivers a beer to his human upon request using a special cart that his human had made just for him. According to Wallace’s human, this feat has been in the making for some time.
This event marks the release of an epic accomplishment. I have been collaborating for the past year with my girlfriend’s pet rabbit to create performance art and “happenings” that capture this rabbit’s capabilities and worldly passions. In a million years, neither Wallace nor I would have guessed that our creative endeavors would take this route but after such a long journey we arrive at this significant moment.
There’s also some shaky behind-the-scenes footage of Wallace training for his big moment.

Researchers at MIT have managed to create synthetic skin inspired by the adaptive properties of cephalopods like octopuses, squid, and cuttlefish that can change its color, fluorescence, and texture simultaneously via remote control. Early applications for the skin would likely be aimed at the military uses with potential consumer applications following.
While troops and vehicles often move from one environment to another, they are presently limited to fixed camouflage patterns that might be effective in one environment but stick out like a sore thumb in another.
Voice actor Jon Bailey of Screen Junkies and Smosh recently teamed up to create an honest trailer (previously) for Resident Evil, the original survival horror video game developed and released by Capcom in 1996.

In “BusinessTown,” illustrator Lunch Breath has brilliantly reimagined the lovable anamorphic Richard Scarry characters of “Busytown” as the stereotypical technology employees and personalities that can most be often found in places like Silicon Valley.
An ongoing project attempting to explain our highly intangible, deeply disruptive, data-driven, venture-backed, gluten-free economic meritocracy to the uninitiated. With apologies to Richard Scarry.

“Avengers 2: Step Up” is a great parody by PistolShrimps (previously) of Marvel’s 2012 film The Avengers where a flexible young man attempts to turn the group of powerful superheroes into a graceful dance team.
One man is bringing together a team. A dance team! Avengers 2: Step Up. Avengers parody.

Numberphile (previously) host Hannah Fry takes a look at a number of mathematical strategies aimed at increasing one’s probability of winning a round of rock-paper-scissors. While the game is intended to be determined by random chance, certain strategies can increase one’s odds when playing against a human opponent.
People who win tend to repeat their strategy. For example, if I beat you playing rock, there is a very high probability that I will play rock again, a second time. If it worked once, it’s going to work again, right?
