parrot learns to activate amazon's alexa and turn on lights

you have to imagine that amazon did a ton of testing before they released alexa. they probably tested dozens of accents from around the world, tested how well alexa could hear people from different distances, and who knows what else. but this is probably one use case the tech folks at amazon hadn’t considered: activation by parrot. this african grey parrot, it seems, has learned to activate and control alexa, or at least turn on the lights.full story at youtube.more great animals. posted by josh urich

the slow-mo guys slice through water bottles with a katana

the katana, or the japanese samurai sword, is infamous for its strength and sharpness. legends (disgustingly validated––you can google it if you’d like, but we recommend against it) tell of the sword cutting through multiple human bodies in one slice. fortunately, the slow mo guys don’t test that exact legend. instead, they test the katana on ten water bottles. it’s harder than it looks to hit all those bottles with the sword, so it takes them a few tries.full story at youtube.more great vids. posted by josh urich

louis c.k. was, for a minute, america’s sick and twisted comedic moral barometer. unfortunately, as it turns out, his own moral compass was askew. with the news of several women accusing louis c.k. of sexual harassment––and with louis c.k.’s own admission that the accusations were true––it’s interesting to see how other men in hollywood are reacting. jon stewart, louis c.k.’s longtime friend, tried to give his friend the benefit of the doubt but, now stewart’s got to face the ugly truth about the comedy industry.full story at youtube.more intense tv. posted by josh urich

foods chefs will never order at restaurants

when it comes to experts in restaurant foods, chefs are probably top of the pecking order. in other words, you should listen to them when they tell you what foods to avoid––and some of these foods are surprising. chicken, for example, seems like a safe bet. but the problem is many restaurants overcook chicken for fear of making their customers sick, leaving the chicken dry. kobe beef, the famous japanese delicacy, is another risky bet thanks to some labeling confusion between kobe beef and wagyu.full story at youtube.more food stuff. posted by josh urich

animated comedy bit about why you shouldn't fly spirit airlines

we all want to take the cheapest flight possible. while you can often find good flights for good deals, the problem is that sometimes you get what you pay for. spirit airlines, for example, is very well priced. but the moment you step on spirit, according to this comedian, you’re going to see why it’s so cheap. it’s the only airline with cockroaches, as he says, but even the roaches on spirit don’t want to be there!full story at youtube.more about aviation. posted by josh urich

why metals are shiny - holy kaw!

unlike (non-polished) wood, plastics, fabrics, and pretty much every other fabric, metals are shiny. what makes metals different from these other materials? it’s in the atoms. the same reason that metals can be banged into different shapes and wood, plastics, and so on cannot causes metal to reflect lines. basically, the electrons line up and when light strikes them they vibrate, causing another wave of light to emanate from the metal. see more in this video.full story at youtube.more great science. posted by josh urich

what makes stranger things season 1 so darn good

almost everyone agrees that stranger things season one was a very special bit of television. it was set in the 1980s, but it doesn’t use nostalgia as annoyingly as some other shows. it references a ton of 1980s pop culture elements, but it doesn’t do so in a cheesy way. in fact, stranger things adopts some of those pop culture references and then takes them even farther, bringing them into fruition. take a look at this brilliant video essay.full story at youtube.more great tv. posted by josh urich

why more archers don't shoot like lars andersen

remember lars anderson? perhaps this video of him turning arrows in mid air will jog your memory. or maybe one of lars’s earlier videos? now that your memory is jogged, you might wonder why lars hasn’t revolutionized the sport of archery. this professional archer explains that there are several reasons people don’t shoot like lars. first, space. it’s really hard to find the kind of space you need to perform his trick shots. second, you can’t practice with live people unless you’re really good (and they’re really carefree…). see the rest in this video.full story at youtube.more great sports. posted by josh urich

the history of time travel in fiction

the idea of time travel probably dates back to the first time a person felt regret and wished she or he could go back in time and avoid whatever mistakes she or he made. but when it comes to time travel in fiction, things are a little murkier. h.g. wells’s the time machine comes to mind, and there’s also mark twain’s a connecticut yankee in king arthur’s court. both were written in the 1890s. but charles dickens’s a christmas carol was written fifty years prior, and surely that counts? and what about stories since then? take a look at this video to learn more.full story at youtube.more about literature. posted by josh urich

how a tapestry is made

a tapestry is basically a combination of a story, a painting, and a massive sewing project. it’s hard to imagine how such a project even starts. take a look at this video, though. it walks you through the process of making a tapestry from the beginning to the end. it involves lots of transparencies, hand-dyed fabric, a massive loom, and lots and lots of hand-stitching. the end result is, of course, spectacularly beautiful.full story at youtube.more great art. posted by josh urich

how the college board popularized the sat

let’s stop and think about the college admissions process for a second. what do you need to do to get into college? take the right classes, of course, but also you need to take the sat or act. you can’t avoid it. and to take that test, you need to pay a fee. if you want to do well on the sat or act, you need to take a prep course, for which you will pay substantially more money. or you could buy an expensive book to help. either way, these tests are very lucrative. how did this system come to be? take a look.full story at youtube.more about education. posted by josh urich

why aren't there more dead animals laying around?

since there are so many animals on the planet––heck even if you live in cities there are a lot of animals around––why don’t we see loads of dead animals lying around? there are a few reasons for that, actually. first, most animals don’t die of old age; most animals are killed by predators and then eaten. if an animal does make it to old age, or perhaps gets ill, it tends to find a place to hide. once it has passed away, vultures or coyotes find it. and if they don’t, the bacteria and fungi will.full story at youtube.more interesting science. posted by josh urich
