So when you finally done with high school you get to leave one last quote to be cemented in the yearbook and time forever, a good chance to sound smart, motivated, and compassionate. Instead some people take that offer and really go balls to the wall and make a joke of it. I had a few friends myself that had some classic yearbook quotes from “Why do mice have shoulder blades, life is a mystery.” to “Ride or Die- DMX”, both from two of my best friends. Here are 15 classic quotes from the yearbook that are pretty hilarious.
Check the rest below.
We have glorified freestyle running, parkour, free running, whatever you want to call it many times before. I am too lazy to link all the previous posts so you just have to trust me on this one. Anyway when done right free running is pretty bad ass jumping from building to building like spiderman looking like an original Peter Parker. These videos are usually edited in great detail and put together with some killer music. What these awesome videos fail to show you are all the brutal falls and crashes that don’t make it into the video. Long story short, don’t free run or you will probably die. (as shown below)
I wrote an article a few months back where I pretty much aired out my hate for brand whores, and people who have a problem being themselves. The obsession with taking things we loved as kids, and making them somehow cool and hipster hurts me to the point I cant even look at these people with a straight face. I guess someone else felt as strongly about this as I did, and made a pretty cool art project out of it. I present to you, our generations kids. Brand Whore Babies. Well thats something to look forward to. Not.
As a society, we don’t often stop to think about how much has changed in our lives in the past thousand years or even the past dozen. So here’s an infographical look at men throughout the ages.
I don’t think anyone is arguing that college is the best place ever invented. If you didn’t have a good time at college then something is clearly wrong with you and you should go to the stick out of your ass, shit I would have of had a blast if I attended the community college in my town. The downside of college is the actually learning and having to go to class part, I guess that’s why some people actually go to college though. While most of us took the generic classes with maybe a ball room dancing course thrown in, there are some colleges that offer some bizarre courses. I wish I was able to take Alien Sex 101 and Arguing with Judge Judy 230 my senior year.
1. Mail Order Brides: Understanding the Philippines in Southeast Asian Context Johns Hopkins University
This class is designed to “help explain the stereotyping of Filipino women.”
2. Maple Syrup: The Real Thing Alfred University
The course description reads, “the method of producing maple syrup is one of the things in our society that has endured even in today’s culture of constant change.”
3. Philosophy and Star Trek: Georgetown University
Could there be a better way to learn philosophy, or better question, could there be a worse way?
4. Star Trek and Religion: Indiana University
The course is described as “an introduction to the critical study of religion by way of popular culture.”
5. The Phallus: Occidental College
Our favorite graffiti artist is back at it again. Renegade British street artist Banksy goes mainstream (sorta) with these opening credits he storyboarded and directed for this week’s episode of The Simpsons. While reiterating something that everyone has already known, it has a great effect of slapping the truth on someone getting ready for 30 minutes of laughter. Banksy wins again.
Let’s be honest here people, Facebook is just one big ass Internet popularity contest. Quite frankly, we have no problem with that. Judging by the amount of friends you have, you don’t either. One enterprising grad student wants to connect to your Facebook friends list and print your 200 – 2000 friends in 20″ x 40″ (poster size) size so you laud your glorious victory over everyone. Get it with a number of border sizes and colors and then throw a party. You know, as long as you know your “friends” well enough in real life to get them to come over. Trust us, when he finds a way to print our 35000 friends on a single poster every one of you is totally invited to the party… $20 you can buy it here.
More examples and a video below.
When going into work on Friday and seeing this kind of video you just want to do a Matrix style superman dive out the 3rd floor window into a barrel roll, get right into your car and peel out to start drinking and partying. The film was made by Devin Graham (Directed, DP, Edited). It was filmed on a Canon 5D Mark II, 2 Canon 2Ti’s, and one EX1. They used one steadycam, and had an assortment of lenses, Canon and Nikon. The people in the video are from the Ensoul team, who is a team of extremely talented bikers , break dancers, poppers, and free runners. They had several of there team members doing the stunts for the video. You can check out there facebook page here.
This is the coolest, weirdest, bad ass, funniest video I’ve seen all week (and I see a lot). The video is surprising directed and edited really well and has a pretty interesting ending to say the least. The video is only at 400 views now but I can see this thing making it’s way around the internet pretty quickly.
From the Creator:
This is the birthday gift I made for my lil’ bros. Happy birthday Scott and Mark! (=
To our mom: Sorry if it’s a little too PG13, but I thought they’d like it. (Keep in mind, they’re the ones doing all the fighting and shooting. I was just there to film. haha.) Nah, I can’t do that to them. It was totally my idea. I’ll take all the blame. =P
To our dad: Email this to all your coworkers. Show them how cool your sons are.
