Thanks, Internet!: Dog Excitedly Jumping Around To House Of Pain's 'Jump Around'

This is a short video of a dog that appears to manage an unregulated Amazon fulfillment center furiously jumping around with the audio of House Of Pain’s classic ‘Jump Around’ added. Man, I remember when that song came out — I did so much jumping around. I was probably in the best shape of my life. Now look at me. Just look at me! “Awww, you could still be on the cover of a magazine.” You mean it?! “Sure, Heart Attack Digest.” *wiping powdered donut crumbs from side of lips* Your words hurt me.

Keep going for the video.

So, if you were wondering why your package hasn’t arrived yet, this is it. That or some jabroni stole it off your porch. You know there’s a special place for package thieves. “In hell?” *moaning, chains rattling in basement* Yes, in hell. That’s what I meant.

Keep going for the drive by.

Google Hardware Chief Says He Does Not Know Why Pixel 4 Smartphone With Snapdragon 855 Processor Can't Support 4K Video Recording at 60FPS

Google’s latest flagship smartphones — the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL — do not support video recording in 4K at 60 frames per second. This has disappointed — and puzzled — many fans especially since other smartphones that are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 do offer this video recording functionality. (Recent generation of iPhone models also offer this functionality.) Folks over at The Verge asked Rick Osterloh, the hardware chief at Google, where the bottleneck lied. “I don’t know,” responded the chief.

Dare To Dream: Team Builds A Massive 3,168 Square Foot Ouija Board

giant-ouija-board-1.jpg

This is a video of the world’s new largest Ouija board, OuijaZilla, a massive 72-foot by 44-foot Ouija board constructed out of painted plywood in Salem, Massachusetts (appropriate). The board was constructed from 99 sheets of 4′ x 8′ plywood, weighs 9,000 pounds, and measures 3,168 square feet (three times the size of the previous record holder). It also features a 15.5-foot x 10-foot planchette, which can be moved around the board by a single person standing in the middle of it. “What about a person in a relationship?” LOL. Man, just imagine the size of the unholy demons that are gonna be summoned with this thing. Because one time in middle school my best friend and I were playing with his Ouija board during a sleepover and the planchette started moving around the board all crazy, then a face appeared in his fireplace so we burnt the whole house to the ground just to be on the safe side.

Keep going for a video of the board from ground level.
