The Random Interesting Stuff Thread

edited December 2015 in General
This is a place to post whatever you find interesting. It doesn't matter what it is. It could be a video you find interesting, a song, a news story, or something that interesting that happened in your life you'd like to share. Whatever you want. I've often found stuff that I really like in other forums that have off topic general threads, so I'm making one for us. I'll get the ball rolling here.

Found this video last Christmas and it made me laugh so much. The guy did a great job parodying a Christmas classic. I think you will enjoy. That is if the forum will allow me to auto-embed the youtube link, which it should...



and if it doesn't here is the link www.youtube.com/watch?v=idnXrzDtusA

  • It was totally awesome. I just filled out this online survey and based on my social security number, date of birth, zip code, and mother's maiden name it was able to tell me that my spirit animal is a sloth!

  • I was just thinking about the movie Cool As Ice which led me to the thought "I wonder when the last time someone could honestly say 'I was just thinking about the movie Cool As Ice' was."

  • Is "The Walk of Life" by the Dire Straits the perfect way to end any movie? I'm not convinced, but there's a guy with just that thesis and he's posted a ton of different movie endings overlaid with the song. It's pretty entertaining even if it doesn't always work. And for whatever reason, no matter how many of these I watch it hasn't gotten stale. It also got me thinking about what other songs are great movie ending songs.

    Interesting bit of Star Trek movie trivia: Remember "7th Heaven," that awful family drama from the 90s? Well both of the parents on that show guest starred in a Trek movie with the original cast. Stephen Collins was Captain Decker in The Motion Picture, and Catherine Hicks was cetacean biologist Gillian Taylor in The Voyage Home. Interestingly, the role that Hicks played was initially written for Eddie Murphy, who approached Paramount wanting to be in a Trek film. It would have been the next thing he did after Beverly Hills Cop, but he decided instead to do The Golden Child. Good thing, too; I can't imagine Shatner delivering the line "Well, like they say in your century, I don't even have your telephone number." to Eddie Murphy.

    I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, “If this isn’t nice, I don’t know what is."

  • @DancesWithWookies wow, now, call me crazy, but I imagine if you seasoned something just right with some garlic and onions, it probably wouldn't taste as bad as you think, or am i really messed up
  • @adobo1148 I'm sure it tastes like chicken.

    But if these are performance artists and there are no cuts, then isn't this really a piece of performance art that's been videotaped, as opposed to it being a movie?

  • @Hatorian gave this trailer a shot, started at 5:18 est, and tapped out at....... 5:18 est

  • Yeah I don't really think that qualifies as a movie but good try guys lol

    I didn't even know they were making a re-make of this, but It's Hollywood so I'm not surprised. I like Denzel & i like Pratt so i could give this a chance

  • @adobo1148 My wife showed me that yesterday. Totally hilarious. I particularly loved the bit about how if we ate all of the deer so many deadly car accidents would be avoided. I love it!
