The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug officially opens today, and you can prepare for this momentous ocassion by exploring Middle Earht with the help of Google.
Yup, the folks over at Google geek out over LoTR/The Hobbit just as much as you, so much so that they made an interactive map of Middle Earth you can check out here.
The acoustics of where you play a drum factor into how it sounds. This compilation shows you just how different it can sound (and feels a little seizure-incuding from the rapid movement).
My favorite part is the headbanging snowman.
I ran across this video the other day that shows a helicopter pilot make loading Christmas trees look like child's play.
Then I ran across another video that show his piloting skills from his POV. You wish you got your tree from whatever company employs this guy.
Some of the best parts of this video center around how much effort they put into making this guy think he'd been in a coma for 10 years after an accident caused by drinking and driving.
The fake news they put together couldn't be more fantastic. Miley Cyrus facing eviction from her trailer park for refusing to stop defecating in her neighbor's yard? Justin Bieber celebrating his 10 year anniversary with his "life partner?" Spectacular!
Before we get into whether or not this video might be fake, I think the bottom line should really be that it's not just an awesome video, but a great message against drinking and driving. Imagine if you really DID wind up in a coma for 10 years.
