They Were Waiting For Takeoff When This Group Of Men Did The Coolest Thing

Delayed flights are the worst, unless a little in-flight entertainment comes along. Sadly, that’s a rarity.

Being trapped on a plane can be such a drag. You’re stuck in a cramped space, you’re probably next to an unhappy baby, and the impatience factor rises by the second. Things are considerably less awful, however, when people on board start getting creative. The talented gents in this video decided to use their skills to make everyone’s experience so much better!

I feel like flying would be exponentially less awful if this became a regular thing, don’t you? It’s always nice when people go out of their way to help others out in less-than-pleasant situations.

Stern tries to slam Romney on ‘America’s Got Talent,’ is schooled instead

http://twitter.com/#!/MommyAndMedia/status/220016708327440384

During last night’s episode of “America’s Got Talent,” judge Howard Stern offered some advice to a ventriloquist act. He told the wannabe-talent to jazz up his act with some funnies.

Howard Stern tells "America's Got Talent" guy to step up his dog act: "I mean Mitt Romney tied the dog to the roof of his car." #seamus

Hardy har har! Yuk, yuk, yuk! Wow, so hilarious, Howard.

Howard Stern bashing Mitt Romney out of nowhere on live TV >>>>>>

— Matt (@MattTB12) July 3, 2012

Not out of nowhere, really. Evidently, it was to endear himself to super smart people like the following.

Howard Stern just dissed Mitt Romney on Americas Got Talent. Love, love, love it!!!

— Deb Vermaas (@debv219) July 3, 2012

It will be a travesty if @HowardStern walks back the Mitt Romney diss.

— The Book Viking (@thebookviking) July 3, 2012

Except, besides not being funny at all, it wasn’t much of a diss. These Twitter users make that clear and school Mr. Stern.

Dear Howard Stern, Mitt Romney may have tied a dog to the roof of his car, but Obama ate a dog. #AGT

Don't bring politics into this @howardstern Mitt Romney tied his diahrea dog to his car, but Obama ate dog growing up #dogshateboth #AGT

Umm, @HowardStern, Mitt Romney may have put his dog on the roof of his car, and it lived, but Obama actually ATE a dog. It didn't. #agt

Watching AmericasGot Talent. Howard stern cracked about Romney strapping dog to roof. Didn't Obama eat a Poodle Panini.

Obama was 6, Mitt adult RT @sHAMM_wow9 Dear Howard Stern, Mitt Romney may have tied a dog to the roof of his car, but Obama ate a dog. #AGT

— Tom N (@tomntmj) July 3, 2012

Dude. Obama ate a dog. Then bragged about it in a book, allegedly written as an adult.

Perhaps Mr. Stern should heed his own advice about learning how to be funny. He can start by reading the best of #ObamaDogRecipes.

Some Friends Explored an Abandoned Missile Silo. What They Found is Nightmarish.

There are things you see in movies that you would never do in real life. Near the top of that list might be exploring dark, creepy, and abandoned places. That’s exactly what these friends decided to do.

Last week, a group of friends thought it would be a good idea to explore an abandoned Titan I Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) silo in the Colorado countryside. To say these pictures are creepy is a vast understatement. Just wait until you see the “hydraulic fluid” they found.

Here are the friends approaching the entrance to the silo. This is already getting creepy.

The Titan I ICMB was an important player in the early Cold War. It was capable of delivering a nuclear payload anywhere in the world.

This could have very easily turned into the true story for a very creepy horror movie. Luckily, no one was hurt and nothing too creepy happened. I just hope that it was just hydraulic fluid. Either way, I don’t think I’ll be visiting this part of Colorado anytime soon.

This Guy Just Built The Most Beautiful TV Wall For Under $200

TV stands work well to hold your electronics, but most of them aren’t really nice to look at.

My TV sits on top of my dresser, but I’ve always wished that I had the time to build an awesome wall mount instead. While that definitely isn’t going down anytime soon because of my epic laziness, this guy made it happen without even spending a ton of money.

Imgur user cwdobbins took the idea behind floating beds and used it to craft a seriously cool wall mount in his living room. The best part is that he did it all for under $200!

This space was transformed into entertainment heaven after he was through with it!

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); });

First, he bolted a piece of wood to the wall, creating a French cleat that would safely support the combined weight of the floating wall and TV.

Then he hammered and welded a steel frame together out of angle iron.

He wanted a cool backlight, so he installed LED strips onto the frame.

Next, he cut some wood boards to size and sanded them before staining each piece.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI1_BTF’); });

After applying some polyurethane finish, he got to work on screwing the boards into the frame.

When all the boards were attached, it was finally time to hang this beauty up.

It was too heavy for him to lift on his own, but his transmission jack turned out to be perfect for the job.

In order to keep his TV’s electronic accessories off of the floor, he welded more angle iron into the shape of a box.

Then he created a smaller mount for the case that would be directly attached to the wall.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI2_BTF’); });

Lag bolts assured that it would be nice and sturdy.

Then came the fun part — finally mounting the TV!

The only thing left to do was complete the electronics case, so the crafter cut shelving boards to enclose the box.

And for the front door of the box, he installed some hinges.

After staining all the pieces, he screwed that bad boy into the mount.

After plugging everything in, he was good to go!

Not only does he have an amazing TV wall now, but his living room looks so much classier!

I am so completely jealous of him.

Something tells me that cwdobbins is going to have a lot of trouble ever leaving that room. If you’re dying for your own floating TV wall, you can find the full instructions here.

Jason Biggs tweeting creepiness at Elvis Costello

http://twitter.com/#!/JasonBiggs/status/302230862248939520

If Elvis Costello is reading this, he might want to consider taking out a restraining order, because Jason Biggs is tweeting some seriously creepy stuff at him. Apparently, Costello is sitting near Biggs on an airplane. Biggs, of course, took this as a good excuse to … ahem … be himself.

I know a famous musician is sitting next to me (a fan approached him) but I don’t know who he is. Gonna try to take a pic and u let me know

— Jason Biggs (@JasonBiggs) February 14, 2013

Could be Elvis Costello holy shit

— Jason Biggs (@JasonBiggs) February 14, 2013

Holy fuck it is Elvis Costello he just made a call n said ‘hey it’s Elvis’. Fucking rad. I wonder if he’s a fan of teen movies from the 90’s

— Jason Biggs (@JasonBiggs) February 14, 2013

Okay, cool. We’d think it was neat if we were sitting next to Elvis Costello too. But then things went off the rails.

My goal is to have him declare, at some point b4 the flight is over, that I am his “funny valentine.” #NailedIt #ElvisCostello #SeatMate

— Jason Biggs (@JasonBiggs) February 14, 2013

He wasn’t wearing his glasses. Only guy I know who takes his glasses OFF to be incognito.

— Jason Biggs (@JasonBiggs) February 14, 2013

Elvis Costello update: We haven’t spoken yet. But we BOTH ordered the salmon! So I know we’re gonna be best buds soon. #MyFunnyValentine

— Jason Biggs (@JasonBiggs) February 14, 2013

He just ordered the ice cream he just ordered the ice cream holy shit Elvis Costello likes ice cream I wish I was ice cream

— Jason Biggs (@JasonBiggs) February 15, 2013

He watching an old black and white movie on his DVD player. God, that’s so Elvis! Classic elvis. #BestBuds

— Jason Biggs (@JasonBiggs) February 15, 2013

He started to doze off (must be a boring movie LOL) but woke up before I could snap a shot 🙁 #ElvisCostello #SeatMate #BestBuds

— Jason Biggs (@JasonBiggs) February 15, 2013

I’m not really gonna take a picture of him you guys! I have way too much respect for my friend and Valentine Elvis Costello. #SeatMates4EVA

— Jason Biggs (@JasonBiggs) February 15, 2013

I mean, you can literally see in his face how hard he is resisting the urge to talk to me. Don’t be nervous, Elvis Costello! #BestBuds

— Jason Biggs (@JasonBiggs) February 15, 2013

Maybe he’s on Twitter. That would make him nervous right about now.

He dropped his water bottle below my seat n we both went to pick it up at the same time and our hands touched you jealous much?? #BestBuds

— Jason Biggs (@JasonBiggs) February 15, 2013

If any of the flight attendants are reading this, please do not give Mr. Biggs any (more) alcohol.

Ugh, twitter tells me Jason Biggs is sitting next to Elvis Costello on a plane and tweeting his (EC’s) every move. I find this V/ douchey

— Sam Dunn (@sammydunn) February 15, 2013

RT @yogfest: I wonder if Elvis Costello knows that Jason Biggs is tweeting about him < I hope so cos it feels VERY creepy.

— Sam Dunn (@sammydunn) February 15, 2013

@jasonbiggs I’d love to be the booking agent for an airline. “Yeah, let’s put Jason Biggs next to Elvis Costello. Just ’cause.”

Samantha Power takes 17 UN ambassadors to LGBT musical

It took both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton several years and just as many attempts to properly and fully evolve on gay rights, but now that they have, it’s time for the United States to lead the way for other nations which might not be as enlightened. Enter U.N. Ambassador Susan Power, who took 17 of her colleagues to the Broadway musical “Fun Home,”centered on a young womanwho has recently come out as a lesbian and discovers that her closeted father is also gay.

After the show, the ambassadors and cast membersdiscussed LGBTI issues in a talk hosted by actress Cynthia Nixon, best known to many from the hit series “Sex and the City.”

The Independent reports that ambassadors representing Russia, Gabon and Namibia attended, along with envoys fromthe European Union, Australia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, El Salvador, Mexico, the Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland, Uruguay and Vietnam.

“Thank you for bringing this all home in a way that resolutions and statements never can,” Power reportedly told the cast following a Q&A session.

It’s nice to see a Broadway musical being employed as a tool of cultural diplomacy for a change. Last month, Secretary of State John Kerry did the predictable thing and met with the usual Hollywood suspects including executives from NBCUniversal, Warner Bros., DreamWorks Animation, 20th Century Fox, Sony Pictures Entertainment and the Walt Disney Co. for advice on countering ISIS propaganda.

This Motion Test For ‘Mama’ Is Scarier Than The Actual Movie

I love scary movies — and when I say love, I mean LOVE! I spend every October scaring myself silly…but even I’ve never seen anything quite like this motion test for the 2013 film “Mama.”

I watched the movie a few years ago, and while it was entertaining, it wasn’t exactly memorable. Although it was produced by the legendary Guillermo del Toro, creator of “Pan’s Labyrinth,” the plot failed to deliver, in my opinion.

However, this behind-the-screens motion test is a different story entirely. It’s going to be a long time before I can get these images out of my head!

Seriously though, what is her arm doing?!

It’s just not natural…

via GIPHY

Well, I guess I’m never sleeping again. Thanks a lot, “Mama”!
