I’ve been running into these videos where someone in China lights a firework, drops it down a manhole and gets literally explosive results. The ensuing blast is powerful enough to launch the manhole cover!
Is this kind of methane buildup particular to sewers in China, or are there other places where the sewers are brimming with poop gas? Is it simply caused by the high population density in Chinese cities coupled with Chinese cabbage or is there some other cause?
I always knew cello players were weird, but not this weird. Found via Peter Sagal.
Tiny Chainsaw is both a video and a song produced and written by Joel Veitch from rathergood.com, who over the years have brought you gems such as Buffy’s Swearing Keyboard, the kitten videos of Gay Bar, Independent Woman and Fell in Love with a Girl and the We Like the Moon song, which got turned into a Quizno’s ad:
Thanks to Ryan Coleman for pointing me to it!
Some people have mentioned that Tiny Chainsaw could be the new Lupo the Butcher. I say that nothing could ever be Lupo the Butcher but Lupo the Butcher:
Back in 1987, Disney and Star Wars first came together with Disneyland’s Star Tours ride, the first such attraction based on a non-Disney film. That same year, Guns ‘n’ Roses released Appetite for Destruction, an album with a slew of rock hits, including Welcome to the Jungle, the second single off that album (a song that got a big boost from the “Dirty Harry” film The Dead Pool).
We would have to wait until 2011 for Disney, Star Wars and G’n’R to join together and form a triumvirate of awesomeness. In case your brain refuses to accept what’s happening in the video above, it’s Welcome to the Jungle featuring the Mos Eisley Cantina Band as backup dancers, Chewbacca as Axl Rose and the Ewoks as guitarists and percussionists (they’re playing on the helmets — or is it decapitated heads? — of fallen stormtroopers and TIE fighter pilots).
I normally don’t go for the live entertainment at Disney parks, but this one I’d love to see.
