If you watch carefully, it’s not hard to see how Biola University professor Matthew Weathers seamlessly goes from speaking to his class in person to appearing in a YouTube video projected on the classroom’s movie screen. But it’s still a neat trick, and it even comes with a timely lesson about the spirit of Thanksgiving. Watch the coolest lesson ever below.
The two-and-a-half-month summer vacation that kids get was a mid-19th century compromise between rural school districts, which had children who needed to help out on the family farm, and urban districts, which often dealt with extreme heat in the summer.
The internet has been having a lot of fun with the Mars Curiosity Rover landing. There were a whole bunch of memes. And, of course, there’s mohawk guy Bobak Ferdowsi, who’s successfully bridged the gap between geek and punk.
But the real fun is going to begin when we start to getting hold of more of the photos and videos Curiosity is going to beam back to earth.
In 1982, John Wardlaw was joined by four of his high school buddies at his family’s cabin in Copco Lake, California. During their retreat the five friends, who were all about 19, shot a group photo using a self-timing camera.
They didn’t think much of it at the time, but when they all found themselves at the cabin again five years later they decided to recreate the photo. Thus began a tradition that has been repeated every five years since.
When NPR radio reporter Jeff Cohen’s 5-year-old daughter Sadie gave her 3-year-old sister Eva a very unauthorized haircut, he obviously wasn’t too pleased. But it didn’t take long for him to realize that Eva’s new asymmetrical do (pictured left) was actually pretty funny and that the story of how the haircut came to be was downright adorable.
Sure there is the odd cheese-hater out there, but for the most part we can all agree that a slice of the dairy product is only going to make a burger better.
Yet the folks at KFC have managed to screw that up. The ad pictured here — which is the embodiment of “you’re doing it wrong” — features a new chicken sandwich being offered at the fast food chain’s locations in the Philippines.
It’s a video that’s as shocking as it is heartbreaking. In a clip widely circulating on the Web, middle school students in Rochester, NY’s Greece Central School District viciously taunt 68-year-old bus monitor Karen Klein with graphic slurs for ten minutes, eventually driving the grandmother of eight to tears. The video is very NSFW for bad language and an utter lack of humanity. But, if you read on, this terrible tale is headed for a happy ending.
