There is a new site that is really blowing up quickly, and for a good reason. It is called ifyouwatchitbackwards.com and pretty much all it does is explain things as if they were performed backwards. For instance if you watch it backwards, SCHINDLER’S LIST is the happy story of German soldiers rescuing Jews from an unproductive factory, nursing them back to health, clothing them, and helping them move into temporary living quarters in Warsaw. Here is a collection of some really good ones with some imagery, then I also added a few bonus ones at the end.

Here is a really moving video using Charlie Chaplin’s Speech from The Dictator, which surprisingly makes a lot more sense now then it did back in 1940 when the movie was made. It was made by an organization called Peop1e, a group with, a passion, a vision, a dream. You can visit their website here for more information.
You’ve seen what we thought of the iPad2, and the coverage of the Motorola Xoom, but in comes in another contender to the pad wars, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, and boy does it look pretty. I am not going to lie, I prefer android to apple, that is just me, I feel you can customize your experience more to fit your needs. That being said I still think the apple iPad controls the game, but this tab is really making an argument to take over the game. The tablet will be powered by Nvidia’s dual-core Tegra 2 processor and will ship with Android 3.0 (Honeycomb). It will have both rear and front-facing cameras at 8 MP and 2 MP, respectively. With all that being said I might just buy an apple iPad 1 for 350 bucks at the apple refurbished store online, not a bad deal if you ask me.
You know when someone makes a complete ass out of themselves, or says something really horrible, and you actually feel awkward for them. Well here is a 5 minute video of that exact feeling, for the douche bag all star the Situation completely choking at the Roast of Donald Trump. It gets so bad people start to boo him, it’s so bad it’s actually funny. The best part is Ice-T at 3:23.
I think the last time I got a normal white guy as a taxi driver was when I visited Boston 3 years ago, and I use the term “normal” loosely. He seemed like an average guy at first, but then went on to telling us how he was in a gang, and pretty much hinted robbing and murdering people, so he had to leave the gang or he would end up a drug addict and in jail. So essentially a criminal was driving us around. But in New York, you are most likely going to get someone who doesn’t speak English, and not from America. This is all fine and dandy, especially if they have a funny name I can take a picture of and laugh at like a 8 year old, here are some prime examples.

What is going on in Japan is horrible, there is no doubt about that and we are not being dicks. But honestly in 2 months no one will give a crap about the people still without homes or food in Japan. People are dying every day and no one cares, it is just how it works sadly.

Ordinskaya Cave is the largest underwater cave in Russia, and one of the biggest caves in the world. Although cave diving can be dangerous, it is also thrilling and underwater photographer Vitya Lyagushkin and diving journalist Bogdana Vashchenko thoroughly enjoy these types of expeditions. Would you go down here and follow a fishing line through the rocks and tunnels of this massive cave? I have my answer for you, absolutely not. For one I feel I would easily get trapped in between two rocks or in a tight spot, even though as stated before, I weigh 38 pounds and paper thin, but it would probably still happen. Secondly I picture a 80 foot school bus sized prehistoric Revelation eating dinosaur lurking these caves and I wouldn’t want to encounter that, I am too good looking to be ripped into bits and pieces. Anyway here are some stunning photographs of Russia’s Ordinskaya underwater cave.

Here is a pretty interesting set of posters done by Graphic Patrick, site found here. He did a little bit of research on mental health disorders and came across a few to visualize in a minimalist sort of way. Here they are, I am sure a few loony toons with these problems will really get a kick out of them.
The rest of the mental health disorders found below
