    Fun with a GITD wall, a quick lesson in fluoresence and phosphoresence, and some amazing GITD artwork.

    Broadcast television, especially network television, spends a lot of time, money and effort to produce a highly polished, smooth product. These days a lot of the production electronics rely on IT systems to perform their magic. Every now and then they have a bad day, and the result is usually funny.

    I view that as a piece of art; a dazzling technical display, punctuality, precision, and now a selection of scenes of daily life - a sunset, a funeral, a collage piece on the economy, and we take you now back live to our newscaster who remains dutifully on watch, silently at the ready, nothing to report on this serene day..

    Interesting perspective, StarHalo.

    On the other hand, I would pay to be able to hear the intercom / IFB track while that was happening!

    The people in the background right start flying into "get so-and-so on the phone" mode at around 2:35, but generally it's pretty surprising how uninvolved the news room is; you'd think if the live broadcast were going nose first into the ground with you in the shot, there'd be a bit more concern, but bald dude just over the anchor's shoulder is just chillin' with his headphones, doing some browsing..

    I went back and looked at that and you're right. I'm pretty sure the people in the background are all news editors. I'd love to see a shot of the control room during this fiasco. From what I understand, their automation and/or graphics system crashed. I've seen a very similar looking crash on a local news station once, but it wasn't nearly as prolonged.

    It occurred to me that the British, being generally more prim and proper than americans, might have taken this in stride better than we would.

    Drone Racing League, indoor obstacle course drone racing - prepare to be dazzled, and perhaps to have found your next hobby you don't have the time or money for. Not computer graphics or enhanced, this is what the sport looks like:

    Yeah... I saw this in a Readers' Digest "Humor in Uniform" column about 40 years or so ago, featuring a different "other party" than the one in this video clip. Something tells me some enterprising soul heard the same yarn and put this together for our amusement.

    Damn, that guy is tough. It looks like that bus was doing around 35 mph, way too fast for that turn.

    One of the coolest pyrotechnic displays I've seen in a long time. Great planning and craftsmanship.
