1928 Time traveler

This video has been making the rounds on both the Internet and on the news. The man in the video below claims that he has discovered a time traveler in a video clip. The clip in question comes from a behind the scenes feature in the Chaplin movie The Circus, filmed at the premiere outside of Mann’s Theater in LA. Several counter theories have arisen, including the possibility that it is a hearing aid from 1928, but the most logical and rational explanation must be that it is someone that found a way to travel through space and time in order to attend a Charlie Chaplin premiere event. You decide!

And boom goes the dynamite redux

Remember the infamous “boom goes the dynamite” guy? The reporter who’s first on-air experience ended up so disastrously that he actually apologized on air? Well in this corner… During the high school football game in Massachusetts that pitted Abington against Rockland, the announcer then has something of a psychotic episode before he abandons all pretenses and actually leaves the booth to yell at the refs.

Attack of the ghetto ninja

This video has the makings of an Internet legend, right up there with the numa numa kid, the “Chocolate Rain” singer and the Tron guy. The guy has even earned the name of “ghetto ninja” already, which is catchy enough that it is likely to stick.  In an effort to resist arrest and fight the power, this brave young lad decides to throw down the nun chucks and switch to the open fist fighting style. Then he jump kicks himself right into a ditch.

People doin’ stuff

But please make sure your health insurance is current and you have someone that can take care of you while you are in traction for the next six months.
