Thread: Interesting Video Finds Part 3

  1. #1

    Default Interesting Video Finds Part 3

    In keeping with the spirit of this thread, this thread is provided as a repository for those interesting little videos you find.

    The bulk of the recently created threads does little more than call attention to a particular video that a member might have found to be personally interesting. In most cases, the video hasn't sufficient content to merit anything more than a possible sentence, if even that, with which to open the thread. They are interesting indeed. They're interesting enough to merit a post within a thread, but they lack sufficient sustainable content to merit creation of a dedicated thread.

    Such finds are to be posted in this thread. Those posted as a newly created thread will be closed or moved to this thread. Merging threads is more labor-intensive, so moving the threads to this one may not always be the way it will be handled.

    No doubt there are some circumstances where the subject matter of a video, the commentary from the thread creator, and the reasonably expected responses from the posting membership will justify a unique thread dealing with the topic. In such cases, it's not likely that moving it here, or closing it will occur.

    Please don't use the thread for any purposes other than to post your video finds, or to discuss them, since the discussion of the threads utility would be destructive to this thread's purpose. Discussion of this thread creation can be handled in Questions/Problems/Suggestions, or the Underground, depending on the intensity or nature of your responses.

    We'll eventually sticky this thread.
    Feel free to post your video finds, and enjoy.

    Thanks for these threads, they are great. The last video you posted, "Luckiest People Alive" was tremendous.

    Never mind.

    Link redirects you to a survey instead of the fun vid about a robot window-washer.

    Seems youtube came up with a creative way to generate more revenue.

    A deer protecting Mother Goose.

    The male goose dies, so a deer stepped forward to take over the male goose's obligations to protect the nest.

    In all honesty, that news story would be much more touching if it were not for my extensive experience studying geese, and their behavior. I won't get into it. Suffice to say that if I only had enough food to feed a rat or a goose, I'd feed the rat. A far more noble creature.

    For cute, we've got the lady bug playing ball with sprinkles.

    Actually, it's trying to eat them; I guess.

    That one made me smile. Only bug I'll ever go out of my way to gently pick up and place outside. There's a reason why they don't run away when you flick on the light.

    Big jet clips tail of little jet on runway and spins it around. Nobody is injured, other than needing a change of underwear.

    Proof that anything tiny is adorable. Introducing the (extremely) mini-cannon.

    And I don't mean a camera. (Be sure to check out part 2 if you'd like.)

    With almost 25 million hits, I'd be surprised if this hasn't been posted here already but I don't remember it. Besides, it gets better when you watch it again anyway.

    The presidential limo is equipped to cope with just about everything.

    Except steep driveways

    Most folks have no clue just how truly advanced Presidential limos really are. Those things are basically mobile fortresses. Forget bulletproof, it is rumored that the plating on one is thick enough to withstand grenades as well as rocket attacks. Weapons stowed all over the place. And even a few secrets that the White House won't reveal to the general public.

    When the limo reaches a certain mileage, they don't sell it to anyone. President gets a new limo. The old one is given to the Secret Service so that agents can practice driving manuvers when they are protecting the President. They literally drive the old one into the ground!

    The President's limo was designed to stop bullets, grenades, rockets, fire-bombs, etc.

    Yet all it took to stop one was a steep driveway!

    See . . . This is why you don't buy a crew-cab truck, with a full-length bed, if you plan on even remotely taking it off-road. Your going to high-center it. This is why you don't get a stretch limo that is longer than 3 windows. (This is in reference to the number of windows present on one side of the limo. Three is fine. When you go up to four, you risk high-centering it. Just like a crew-cab truck with a full-length bed.)

    High-centered on a steep driveway.

    Yep. With all of it's armor and high tech systems, geometry and physics won in the end.

    Sounds not too interesting, until you actually see the vid all the way through. Enjoy.

    If you haven't seen this story linked from CPF's front page, it's worth a look on this Memorial Day. I'll warn you that it's a little tough to watch at first due to the scope of this solder's injuries, but it's a touching story about how he's turned his injuries into a way to help others through humor.
