NO ONE IS THIRSTY

SPOILER ALERT!

They tell you it's based on The Perry Bible Fellowship comic strip, so it's easy to guess how it ends.

Heh. Immediately linked to that video was "6v battery contains 32 AA batteries: Debunked!"

Why would a 6-volt lantern battery contain 32 1.5-volt AA batteries (the equivalent of 48 volts) that--from the first video--apparently weren't even wired together in any way?

This is very odd but it works: the Postmodern Jukebox (with Haley Reinhart) covers Radiohead's "Creep". She was on American Idol. To appreciate how sultry (yeah, that's right) her performance is, don't just start the video running and put something else in the foreground.

Good, but it's stick fiddling special, not very.
"Seth [Meyers] Brings Jon Snow to a Dinner Party". I guess that I must note that there are SOME spoilers if one hasn't watched all of "Game of Thrones" through to the end of season 4.

Rhiannon Giddens: "Waterboy" - David Letterman

Holy CRAP.

The Carolina Chocolate Drops where a local group and I had several occasions to meet Riannon as a freelance newspaper photographer. Even though we didn't really know each other, she always greeted me like an old friend. Such a gracious person.

What a jewel.

Playing with LED filaments. Doing some of the experiments you MIGHT want to try so you don't have to. This video is 15 minutes long.

I vaguely remember being able to connect a bunch of AA batteries in a combination of series/parallel to get 6, 9, 7.5 volts, etc. But it's been a while since I was a kid and tinkering with that.
Something survived a close encounter with the Milky Way's central black hole.

The Bad Astronomer has details and illustrated the overall interaction with this pic:

Image

The colors are important because they are illustrative of the change in the red/blue-shift of the object. Near its closest approach to our galactic black hole, it went from moving away from us at about 2700 km/sec in April 2014 to moving towards us at about 3300 km/sec in September 2014. That's a velocity change of 2% the speed of light (299,792.5 km/sec) and do note: that is despite the fact that the orbital plane of the object around the black hole is far from being aligned with our direction from the black hole.

Our best current guess is that the object is a binary star in a sufficiently close orbit with each other that even this approach was not enough to tear them apart, and that the cloud surrounding them is the remnant of the cloud from which these stars formed (meaning that despite the gravitational weirdness around the galactic black hole that stars can still form). An alternative explanation is that the object ONCE was a binary star that eventually combined into a single star and that the cloud around them/it was a result of that combination expelling a lot of gas.

102-year-old dancer “Sees Herself on Film for the First Time".

Um, I should clarify this: the woman--who was 102 years old in 2014 when this video was made and is still alive--is watching for the first time movies that she was in as a background dancer made during the 1930's and 1940's.

A really nice video. Click it--you'll probably like it.
Tomorrowland trailer 2 and trailer 3.

I dunno. I was more intrigued by the first trailer here a half-year ago. Still probably going to go see it, just not as enthused.
