Roomba Beer Pong Is Your Game Of The Summer

(0) Comments | Posted June 29, 2016 | 12:02 PM

Who knew that the solution to summer boredom could be found in vacuum cleaners?

A version of beer pong played with cups on moving Roombas has hit the Internet. In a video posted Tuesday to YouTube by Megan Noll, one gentleman tosses a ping pong ball into a cup despite the added degree of difficulty.

That's right, bros, you can play your favorite drinking game on pricy cleaning robots.

But you might want to be well-heeled bros.

Wrote one Redditor: "All you need is 12 cups, some beer, and $800 worth of vacuum cleaners."

Roomba Beer Pong isn't a new thing, as this Imgur clip from several months back shows, but here's to hoping it'll catch on for good.

48세의 토니 호크가 스케이트보드의 새 역사를 쓰다 (영상)

(0) Comments | Posted June 29, 2016 | 1:30 AM


토니 호크가 역사를 되돌렸다.

이 엄청난 스케이트보드 선수는 지난 1999년 'X게임'에서 첫 선을 보였던 자신의 기술을 17년 만에 다시 성공했다. 이는 '900'이라고 불리는 기술로, 공중에서 900도를 회전하는 것을 의미하며, ESPN은 이 기술을 스케이트보드 선수들의 궁극적인 목표라고 설명한 바 있다.

지난 월요일, 48세의 호크는 또 다른 '900'을 시도했다. 그가 처음으로 이를 선보였던 지 17년이 지난 때였다.

이 새로운 비디오에서 그는 새로운 역사를 썼다. 그의 새로운 '900'이 달성된 뒤, 그는 헬멧과 패드를 축하 속에서 집어던진 뒤 아들 스펜서를 끌어안는다.

노장은 죽지 않는다는 것을 직접 증명한 셈이다!

OMG, It's Animals Singing 'What If God Was One Of Us'

(0) Comments | Posted June 28, 2016 | 11:09 AM

If animals were meant to cover rock hits, they would have been born with better singing voices.

But thankfully for us, that doesn't stop Insane Cherry. The YouTube channel returns with another creature-dubbed masterpiece, Joan Osborne's "One Of Us" (written by Eric Bazilian).

Splicing in barks, meows, hee-haws and other beastly sounds from internet videos, Insane Cherry has also rendered Queen's "We Will Rock You" and Linkin Park's "Numb."

But watching the animals in Insane Cherry's latest ask "What if God was one of us?" takes rock 'n' roll theology to a whole new level.

Tony Hawk Does A '900' At Age 48 Because He's Still The Man

(0) Comments | Posted June 28, 2016 | 6:43 AM

Watch Tony Hawk repeat history.

The skateboard great caused quite a stir when he completed a "900" at the 1999 X Games. The 2.5-revolution (900 degrees) aerial trick off a ramp was considered skateboarding's "Holy Grail" at the time, ESPN wrote.

In a nod to his feat, Hawk, now 48 years old, attempted another 900 on Monday, 17 years to the day of his original.

In the new video, the legend experiences trial-and-ouch before finally landing the big one. He throws off his helmet and pads in celebration, hugs his son Spencer, then basically says it's his last 900.

Say it ain't so, Tony.

Amy Schumer Releases Deleted Gun Sketch

(0) Comments | Posted June 24, 2016 | 6:28 AM

Amy Schumer, an advocate of gun control, has sometimes turned to comedy to help voice her disgust with political inaction on the topic.

The Senate's inability to pass gun control measures this week inspired her to release a previously axed "Inside Amy Schumer" sketch highlighting the helplessness of shooting victims, Politico reported.

The dark bit puts a spin on lawyer ads that promise monetary damages after accidents.

“Have you ever been injured in a mass shooting or other gun crime? Do you want justice?” the lawyer, played by H. Jon Benjamin, asks. "Hi, I’m Toby Shrak of the law firm of Shrak and Murphy, but don’t call me, because there’s nothing I can do."

Then victims recount their failed experiences.

The clip was originally cut from the Comedy Central series’ “Welcome to the Gun Show” episode, but has been released to the public following the mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, which killed 49 people and injured dozens earlier this month. 

"I am sickened by the cowardice of these people who are supposed to lead us,” Schumer told Politico. "Their dedication seems to be only to dollar signs for their own pockets. In November, we will remember who stood with the gun lobby, rather than their constituents, as we mourned for Orlando."

Last July, a gunman opened fire in a Louisiana theater during a screening of Schumer's comedy "Trainwreck," killing two before shooting himself.

“Unless something is done and done soon, dangerous people will continue to get their hands on guns,” she said at the time, according to Entertainment Weekly. “The critics scoff and say, ‘Well, there’s no way to stop crazy people from doing crazy things,’ but they’re wrong. There is a way to stop them. Preventing dangerous people from getting guns is very possible. We have common-sense...

Charles Barkley Insists LeBron James Isn't A Top-5 Player Of All Time

(0) Comments | Posted June 23, 2016 | 6:49 AM

LeBron James is great, just not that great.

That seems to be the familiar refrain from NBA analyst and Hall of Famer Charles Barkley, who once again denied James a place among the highest immortals of the game.

In a visit with Bill Simmons on HBO's "Any Given Wednesday," Barkley listed his top five NBA players of all-time -- Michael Jordan, Oscar Robertson, Bill Russell, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Wilt Chamberlain -- and said James would never crack the list because his top five will never change. He's publicly left James out of his top five before.

We figure James is probably blocking the noise like:

But ...

That Barkley won't even consider including LBJ is perplexing. Perhaps Barkley had his eyes closed while James carried the Cavaliers on his giant shoulders to the championship to earn a third NBA Finals MVP award.

Barkley did allow that James belongs in the top 10, but, nope, certainly not in the top five; ergo, not in the top three either.

“I’m not going to just move him past Tim Duncan and Kobe. They didn’t just die," Barkley said. "But I will say this about LeBron James: I’ve never seen a man coming out of high school who has handled the success, been a great player, never got in a stitch of trouble. It’s probably been the greatest career ever."
