Antiques Roadshow Appraised My 2008 Toshiba TV

In June, Antiques Roadshow visited Birmingham, Alabama, my home for the last three years. I don’t own a Tiffany lamp or a 19th century Chesterfield sofa. I do, though, have a flatscreen television that’s ancient by consumer electronics standards. So that’s what I brought to be appraised.

Video: People with last names like “Smith” or “Jones” will never understand this pain.


Cerebrospinal Fluid Is The Key To Surviving The Zombie Apocalypse (NSFW)

Specifically, by having unpalatable CSF. How one actually acquires a bitter taste to their brain gravy is both difficult and undesirable — cancer. If such a odd scenario was to eventuate, however, the zombies would probably just ignore you if their primary interest was in grey matter, rather than flesh.

Steve Coogan is back as everyone’s favourite self-involved, bumbling British broadcaster in this very funny feature-length film.


Scientifically Accurate Sonic The Hedgehog Is So Funny Yet So Gross

Video: It’s always fun to realise that all your favourite childhood characters are completely disgusting creatures. Like Sonic the Hedgehog, who in real life can run really, really fast but would also create foam poo with its mouth to rub it on itself for no reason at all. In fact, hedgehogs love all kinds of poo. Plus, his best friend totally wants to eat him. Childhood memories are best ruined by hilariously gross scientific facts.



Sure, Your Job Might Suck, But At Least Your Boss Isn't Darth Vader

Video: Poor Conan Antonio Motti. The guy speaks up at a work meeting, and all of a sudden Lord Vader is trying to put his lights out from across the room. But the worst part isn’t the force-strangling or lack of faith. It’s having to work alongside the jerk and pretend like nothing ever happened.
