If Real People Behaved Like Disney Characters [Video]

Though there is much about this video that gives me the creepies, I confess that I now have a desire to carry a pocketful of confetti wherever I go.

This Six-Year-Old Girl’s Superpower is Breakdancing

Jungle – Platoon from Jungle on Vimeo.

I know you’re all really busy avoiding work right now, and there are those among you who might not want to watch three minutes and sixteen seconds of a breakdancing six-year-old (even if said six year old is a bona fide champion). If that’s the case, do me a solid and skip to 2:20. You can thank me later.

Going Behind-The-Scenes Of Gravity Makes Us Love Sandra Bullock Even More

Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity is amazing, but incredibly difficult to watch (what with the intense anxiety and inevitable spontaneous crying). Now, take that feeling, multiple it by a million, and that’s approximately how challenging it was to actually make the film. If you didn’t think Sandra Bullock deserved an Oscar before, you just might change your mind after watching this Behind-the-Scenes featurette.

Back to the Future’s DeLorean Receives Its Long-Awaited Hover Conversion [VIDEO]

If memory serves, we don’t know exactly when hover technology started being utilized by the masses. Though it’s somewhere between 1985 and 2015 if Back to the Future 2 is any indication. While we may have the technology, we’re nowhere near using it to make our cars fly but that didn’t stop one gentleman from trying. Matthew Riese raised over $5,500 in a Kickstarter campaign to fulfill his dream and complete the alterations on the DeLorean. But at least for this experiment, he did not need roads.

Real Birds Tweet With Their Own Twitter Account, Are More Interesting Than You [VIDEO]

When we first got my cat Dewey, he had a tendency to walk on my keyboard. I was surprised one day to find replies to my twitter stream asking if I was OK. Turns out, Dewey had sent a tweet on my behalf of complete gibberish thanks to me leaving Tweetdeck open. And it wouldn’t be the last time. But conceptual artist  Voldemars Dudums decided to let some animals tweet on purpose, namely birds. Which couldn’t be more perfect considering Twitter’s mascot. How did he do it? He set up a Twitter account for them, @hungry_birds, and rigged a keyboard with snacks of pork fat. They now have over 5,000 followers. Watch them in action but make sure to pay attention to what Dudums says near the end of the video about the rest of us Twitter users. You can learn more at BirdsOnTwitter.com.

Thor: The Dark World Actor Suffers “Horrible Injury” On Set; Calm Down, It’s Not Hiddleston

She may be playing a warrior goddess, but Jaimie Alexander isn’t indestructible in real life. The actress, a.k.a Lady Sif, a.k.a. debatably the most badass part of Thor (and that includes the God of Thunder himself), has suffered a “horrible injury” on the set of Thor: The Dark World, now filming in London. There’s no word on what the injury on question is or what it was caused by (did she try and lift Mjölnir? No, wait, this is real life), but apparently it could have had some very permanent effects, at least judging from a Tweet she posted:

Why You Would Mute Batman on XBox Live

A week ago somebody asked me if I saw any of qualities of Batman in a friend of mine, and I was honestly stumped. See, I don’t spend much time thinking about Batman in relation to people I know personally, because, honestly, Batman’s about the last person I would ever want to have a personal relationship with.

Okay, maybe not the last person: it’s not like he’s going to slit my throat, douse me with fear gas, or snap my spine, but you know what I mean. The guy has next to zero interpersonal skills and even if he does like you, even love you romantically or as a member of his family, you’re a distant second in his mind to the amorphous entity that is Gotham City.

Plus, he’s like, really bad at video games.
