Stranger Things Cast Answers Google Autofill Questions About The Show

Here’s a neat video of Stranger Things cast members Gaten Matarazzo and Joe Keery answering questions that appear in Google’s Search Results.

The questions all relate to the topic of the show and range from “Is Stanger Things like the Goonies?” to “Does Stranger Things Get better?”. Oh, and apparently a lot of people think Stanger Things is written by Stephen King.

It’s a short video, but it should help to hold you over until Stranger Things Season 3 releases and answers some of the burning question we have. And hey, if you watch the video 64,388 times in a row, you’ll make it Season 3! (I did the math)

Hit the jump for the video.

Giant Sharks Attack Film Crew’s Submarine During Creepy Deepwater Encounter

A film crew working on Blue Planet II caught an amazing sight when they came across several Sixgill Sharks going to town over a whale carcass, and got one crazy scare when the sharks turned their sight to the submarine filming and started attacking the vessel.

It’s an incredible short video, that’ll have you glad that Sharks aren’t land based animals. Could you imagine going toe-to-toe with a Great White Shark that wandered into your backyard? Sure, you can run into the house, but he’d just hang out on the porch waiting for you to come out, doing that intimidating neck-slice move until he gets a blood-sacrifice. Sorry Sparky, it’s you or us.

Wow, I went off topic there. I really shouldn’t be writing these things so late. Anyway, hit the jump to see the incredible footage that’ll leave you out of the ocean for a while. I know it’s November, but you know what I mean.

Remember The Old Arcade Game Rampage? Well It’s Now A Feature Film and Here’s The Trailer

Remember Rampage from the 90’s? The one where you go around and cause as much chaos and destruction as possible? Well, it’s now being turned into a major blockbuster staring The Rock, and Warner Bros. just released the first trailer.

As you can see from the trailer, there are indeed large monsters causing chaos and destruction to the city (it follows the game so closely!).

The Rock plays a primatologist who befriends a gorilla named George, one day George becomes curious and investigates a meteor landing and after being sprayed in the face with some Hollywood magic, starts growing massive and becomes Curious George a rampaging monster.

The film looks like a lot of fun, and I can say that because they showed the entire movie in the trailer. Like, from the first act to the climax, they showed the entire thing. They showed so much, that I wouldn’t be surprised if the next trailer showed 35 minutes from the sequel.

The Steamed Hams Scene From The Simpson But It’s A Guitar Hero Song

The Simpsons used to be great, we got hilarious episodes like Homers Enemy, Mr. Plow, and Marge v. The Monorail. But without a doubt, one of the funniest moments is when Principal Skinner invites Superintendent Chalmers over for dinner and makes a mess out of everything.

Apparently, the scene was so good that someone decided to make it into a custom song for Guitar Hero, complete with power chords and all. I know it sounds crazy, but I’m pretty sure this is why the internet exists, and this might be the best thing I’ve seen all week.

Keep going for the video.

10 Minutes of Robot Porn from Hannover Messe 2017

Robots can do some pretty amazing things these days. Sure, there are concerns about humans losing their jobs to automation, but you have to remember that there are lots of high-paying jobs created for engineers and roboticists to design, build and program the robots themselves, and many of the jobs robots take on are laborious tasks that can be harmful or stressful to humans anyhow. Sure, there’s always a chance there will be a robotic uprising, and they’ll decide they don’t need us anymore, but that’s more likely to be science fiction than fact.

If you think robots are as awesome as I do, then check out this amazing highlight reel that HD1080ide posted from this year’s Hannover Messe exhibition. This annual German expo offers up the latest and greatest in industrial automation technology, and features lots of cool exhibits where robots demonstrate their functions live and in person.

In the course of this 10-minute video, you’ll see robots doing everything from serving up cold beer, to dueling it out with lightsabers, moving like snakes, and even lifting a car. It’s an amazing look at some of the machine technology that companies can use to build, handle, and ship products faster and more reliably than ever before.

That was so cool. I could watch this kind of thing all day long. Also, I want a robot bartender now.

The Humble Beginnings of Mario Explained by Shigeru Miyamoto

We all know Mario is an Italian plumber with overalls and a big black caterpillar mustache. However, most people don’t know the true origin story of Nintendo’s most popular character.

As part of its series 8-bit Legacy: The Curious History of Video Games, the guys from Great Big Story sat down with game designer Shigeru Miyamoto to learn about the earliest days of Mario, and how he came up with the character. It’s a fascinating short documentary that looks back at the history of gaming’s most iconic character, and well worth 6 minutes of your time:

Along the way, you’ll learn a bit about the history of Nintendo itself, how Mario could have been named “Mr. Video,” and how the limitations of 8-bit gaming technology helped guide the distinctive look of Mario.

Building The World’s Largest Rubik’s Cube

When I was a kid, people who could solve a Rubik’s Cube were a rare thing. Nowadays, there are entire leagues dedicated to solving them as quickly as possible, and even guys who can solve them while wakesurfing or juggling. All of those things would be much more difficult when played out on this giant-size Rubik’s Cube.

Woodworker Kyle Toth was recently commissioned to build what appears to be the world’s largest Rubik’s Cube for the Tanz Summer Festival in Cleveland, Ohio. The puzzle measures in a 7 feet-tall, and over 5 feet-wide, and was built from plywood with lazy susan style turntables to make it spin easily.

While each layer of the cube can spin horizontally like the real puzzle, it can’t rotate on the vertical axis. For that, you’ll have to try Tony Fisher’s cube, which is just a hair smaller, but is fully functional.
