A bunch of colourful plastic balls get poured onto an escalator and a loop effect takes place:
After a bomb hit the property of Richmond Golf Club in Surrey, England during "Battle of Britain" in 1940, the club implemented some temoporary rules of golf so the game could continue as normal despite the attacks of the Luftwaffe:
What we recognize as the bicycle today, looked in the early stages of its development, more like something of a box. Here is a 90-second animation of the evolution of the bicycle (I only wish the animators had put some timestamps in there):
Wow! The way Japan has solved the issue with lack of parking space for bicycles is just fantastic. The solution: you simply send your bike underground. And by parking it underground, you also protect it against weather and thieves. A brilliant solution!
That is one dark and beautiful formation of ice! Photographer Alex Cornell shoot this rare occurrence of an iceberg that has flipped over when on a visit to Antarctica. I just love it's vast thickness and colours.
During an expedition to Antarctica, photographer Alex Cornell was lucky enough to see an iceberg flip over and was able to capture these spectacular images. Such flips are rare and often dangerous, because of the waves they make. Some iceberg flips can even cause tsunamis.
Most of us appreciate a good and visually pleasing hand-lettered sign when visiting anything food related and/or shops in general. To help the businesses "blossom", this skilled artist in NYC has come up with the creative idea to craft those signs in exchange for a meal (and I also hope this leads to a full-time job eventually):
It’s simple: you have a lovely restaurant, bakery, bar, or coffee shop in New York City. I have a terrifying, yet impressive appetite. You have a little chalkboard or dry erase sign with your daily specials, happy hour deals, etc. I happen to have a knack for drawing pretty letters. Let’s make a deal.
I’ll write out your lunch special on your chalkboard in exchange for one thing: that exact lunch special. Want to promote your amazing lasagna? I’ll do it for a plate of that amazing lasagna. Have the best cocktails in the city? Whip some up for me and I’ll whip up a beautiful sign for you. Whatever you want me to write is exactly what you’ll pay.
"More NFL" is the follow-up video of "The NFL: A Bad Lip Reading" (video), a great compilation of wonderful funny voice-overs of players and coaches in the National Football League. I'm not surprised this work became a viral success!

A short conversation with hedge fund manager Ray Dalio and filmmaker Martin Scorsese about Transcendental Meditation. Maybe we have TM to thank for the completion of the great movie Hugo (2011) that Martin talks about.
Stuntman Adam Kirley, once acting as Daniel Craig's stunt double in Casino Royale, shares his knowledge on how to escape from, e.g., a runaway taxi:
If I were in a runaway taxi, I’d probably try to throw the taxi driver out, but if you absolutely have to make an exit try your hardest to slow down the vehicle. Slamming on the handbrake is a bad move – it will cause the car to slide and increase the risk of you getting run over when you disembark. Distract the driver to slow his speed, and make your move when he least expects it.

300 movies were included in the creation of this cinematic montage. And for those of you that want the details, here is a list with all the films that were used.
I'll definitely give "Burt's Guinness Chips/Crisps" a taste when walking by one of the English shops in my area, although I swore not that long ago, to never eat chips again due to its ingredients.
The chips are thick cut and hand-cooked, seasoned with roasted barley and hops. Together, these make them taste pretty much like the bittersweet stout from Ireland. They can be found at UK retailers in various sizes or purchased online.
"I just go from gym to gym to gym to gym to gym," Rosner told Business Insider UK in an email.
The exercise routine sounds wacky, but Rosner insists on his unconventional regime as a way to stay motivated. The constant change of scenery means he never gets bored. Plus, he doesn't waste time waiting for equipment.
