If you really want to injure yourself while flying at high speeds around a playground merry-go-round, using a moped to speed it up is the way to go.
And in case you had any doubts about that, check out this compilation and try not to feel too motion sick as you watch these teenage daredevils in action.
Some of these were inevitable—like wearing high heels on ice was always going to end in a faceplant.
While others are just the perils of the job—like being creeped on by drunk people—when you do live newscasting, but therein lies the joy of watching it.
We’ll never know how great it would’ve been had the Brits stuffed the US back in 1776.
But at least we have Zachary Quinto, who is both Spock and Sylar, to tell us what could’ve been and how fab it all would’ve been.
You know a performance must be bad when in the back of your mind you’re wishing for Rebecca Black to come on and save your ears.
Maybe it’s some kind of performance piece made to make us hate, but whatever Yoko’s doing in this video, it’s certainly not singing.

Stephen Merchant ponders what might have been had the UK beat the those American upstarts in the War of Independence.

Smosh Games and Screen Junkies finally get round to the Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare trilogy in their Honest Game Trailers series.
And they don’t disappoint, laying down exactly what you can expect from a CoD game, like “slow-motion door breaches, the level where you control a giant gun, that part where you look around and wait to die…”
In February 2014 Philip Seymour Hoffman was interviewed by philosopher Simon Critchley, this excerpt on happiness is taken from that talk.

Jimmy Somervile, it’s like he never went away, isn’t it? Just to make you feel old, the original release of this song was 30 years ago.
And now Jimmy’s back to sing it again, the song that was an anthem for millions of lonely lesbian and gay kids growing up. Hopefully it won’t be needed in another 30 years.
