This Guy Started The Most Epic Subway Singalong Ever

In a big city like London the daily commute or late-night trip home on the subway can be a chore at best and a struggle at worst. A singer called Neil Francis decided to treat his fellow travellers to a rousing version of Erasure’s tune A Little Respect — most of them having just come from a concert by the 80s duo. But what he wasn’t expecting was for the ENTIRE platform to join in. Wow, the acoustics in the tunnels are awesome. Someone should suggest they hold concerts down there.  Just make sure the trains aren’t running. Filmed by Jon Trapnell via DayVideoEdits.

Remember Laser Guns From Sci-Fi Films? They’re A Real Thing Now

A new video released by the Office of Naval Research shows their latest Laser Weapon System (LaWS) being tested aboard the USS Ponse while the ship was in the Persian Gulf. The laser allows for incredibly precise targeting, and in the example include a drone and two tiny points on board smaller vessels. It’s amazing to think that there is no actual bullet being fired, but that the target is still completely destroyed. Naval officers prepare to target a small boat from inside the USS Ponse. They are able to fix the laser gun on the tiniest targets. Here they are aiming at the tiny white dot. And when the moment is right, the laser […]

Ever Wondered What Would Happen If You Stepped On Lava?

Ever thought what would happen if you tried to walk on lava? Well, now we know — thanks to Alex Rivest, a tour guide in Hawaii, who placed his boot on some lava to show how vicious the molten rock really is. When lava exits the vents at the Kilauea volcano it comes out at an incredible 700°C to 1,200°C (1,292°F to 2,192 °F). And when you step on it, breaking the already solidifying surface, the rush of oxygen makes a momentary mini-eruption as the soaring temperatures are fed by the air. The viscous surface then slowly expands again to fill the dent. Another interesting snippet of information about lava is that falling […]

The 10 Best Christmas Movies Of All Time

Before cable television, the internet, and smart phones, kids eagerly awaited the Christmas movies that came on TV once a year. With the TV Guide in hand, all children would know which channel and what day and time their favourite movies would come on. No one wanted to be grounded on those nights, as missing the magical holiday hits was a crushing blow to any child’s holiday. But, what makes one Christmas movie better than the rest? Is it the music? The characters? Well, in the words from the Grinch, ”What if Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more?” Maybe the best Christmas movies mean a little bit more too. The ten best […]
