Seconded.

I love the pull-y 'oooooowweeeeeEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!' cartoon sound thing.

This was invented by someone who was asked "What instrument do you want to learn?" and they replied "All of them, at once."

This guy was asked the same question but had a different answer.

Yeah Wintergarten's stuff is great. After finding that original one the other night I went on a bit of a tear through player instruments. I love things that are just built out of pure human ingenuity and will. Like...I want a thing that'll play 6 violins for me automatically, or an accordion or a frickin banjo or insert instrument here....






I love these things so hard.

HOLY HELL. This sounds EXACTLY like the MIDI versions of the theme on old Star Wars games.

Not technically a video, but eh, whatever. I could listen to this man talk for days.

Re: Cool vids...again.

Just finished the first volume of Simon Callow's biography of him, and my favorite thing about this is that it's almost definitely bullshit. Orson hadn't prepared for the broadcast at all beforehand and the writer of the script, Howard Koch, had chosen the news-bulletin format because he couldn't find any other way to adapt the novel that wasn't desperately boring. Everyone at the Mercury, Orson included, was appalled when they heard they'd been taken seriously, but Orson just folded it right into his personal legend once everything blew over. Fakes on top of fakes—little wonder F for Fake is probably his best film besides Kane.

While the preview has nothing to do with the video, it's a pretty awesome 30 minute piece on how things work in the ISS, how the crew lives, and such.

There is something so intensely satisfying about watching idiots peel the tops of their trucks open like tin cans over and over and over.

I love 11foot8. It's like the most stoic passive-aggressive behavior of all time.

I guess my initial response is why the hell did they make cars that obviously don't go under most overpasses?

Oh, it's not most. It's hilarious because this one overpass is like 100 years old and a lot lower than minimum guidelines would allow these days, but it's too expensive to change the road, so they just put the signs up and tell trucks not to go under it. But it's still tall enough that a lot of people ignore the signs and think they can make it through with their smaller trucks, or just ignore the signs and go through anyways.

There's a whole website about that one overpass: http://11foot8.com/faq/

EDIT: I think the standard height for modern overpass's is 17 feet according to the google machine.

Uh oh. I've started to notice low bridge videos in my Youtube recommended videos feed. I hope this isn't another 'Cars with Ship Horns Vs Ship with Horn' debacle.

I don't know, I mean... If I were driving a truck, my number one concern would probably be if it fits bridges I pass. Aren't the drivers simply a bit careless and/or drunk and/or dumb?

PS: I still feel genuine empathy for the following minutes when the driver has to get out of their truck and witness their error in front of everyone around. Makes me wince.

Re: Cool vids...again.

Many of the trucks are rentals - people who are not used to having to check, then rent a Uhaul to move to anothert house or something.

Many others are just stubborn, or not paying attention. Standard tractor trailer height is 13'6", so low bridges might be marked for 14', 13', 12'6". Someone who's 12" and fits places a full tractor trailer can't won't pay attention to the numbers.

They SHOULD pay attention to the multiple signs and FLASHING LIGHTS at that intersection that turn on when you're overheight, but still. That's when you look at general idiocy, and the fact that it's a high traffic area so even one out of, eh, a thousand is plenty of content.

All of the Enterprise trucks you see in the video are rented by the day.
