Silicon Valley actor Kumail Nanjiani shared this horrifying story. The moral of the story here, please keep your pants on during flight.
There are a lot of videos of people passing out on rollercoasters. There are a lot of videos of people making weird noises on rollercoasters. But there’s only one video where the Windows startup music plays every time this guy passes out on a rollercoaster.
Let’s just say this video delivers. It’s 60, uninterrupted seconds of a man in a pink shirt passing out on a rollercoaster. What’s more, every time he passes out, get this, the Windows startup music plays.

To paraphrase Men’s Warehouse founder George Zimmer, you’re gonna love watching this video. I guarantee it.
Bloop lovers, rejoice! News Be Funny has released their compilations of the best news bloopers of the year. The year 2016 didn't dissapoint.
Yup, over the last 365 days, we sure have spent a lot of time being afraid of the news. I, for one, have to take several deep breaths before loading up Twitter in the morning. But that doesn’t mean we can’t sit back and enjoy the times newscasters accidentally said the word “fart on air,” had their microphones thrown in a lake, or got drunk and told the kids at home that they couldn’t be whatever they wanted when they grow up. The magic of live television.
This is truly what this year has been leading to, and it is glorious.
Not enough bloops? Here’s part one:
Stressed? Anxious? Worried? It’s quite common to be filled with existential dread this time of year, what with the holidays and New Years and all. It can be a lot.
Well, it’s time to get back to basics and remember what it’s all about. Take anywhere from 10 seconds to the rest of your life checking out the Southwest Florida Eagle Cam, which is live right now on YouTube.
This should be enough to chill you out and get through the rest of this hellhole of a year.
Aside from just staying home and not drinking.
With New Year’s Eve on the horizon, it’s good to know your rights. After all, no one wants to spend their first morning of 2017 inside of a jail cell.
The team over at Vice have you covered. They posted an interview Diana Aizman, a Los Angeles-based criminal defense attorney, specializing in DUI and drug laws, where she talks about what’ll get you sent up the river on New Year’s Eve. Here’s her response:
[Cops are] looking for a few things. One is if you're just unable to take care of yourself, if you're obviously stumbling or having trouble maintaining control of your faculties. I've had clients who have been arrested for just sitting on the curb and looking like they're about to pass out or have passed out. That's something that they will probably arrest you for. And then the other thing is if you're just belligerent, loud, obnoxious, in people's faces, in the police officer's face. Basically, if you're posing a danger to yourself or to anyone around you and you're unable to care of yourself in a reasonable fashion, a police officer has the discretion to arrest you for being drunk in public…
If he or she genuinely believes that you are under the influence and unable to reasonably take care of yourself, or if you're engaging in anything that is destructive, then they can arrest you.
Most importantly, if you are arrested stopped, don’t try and talk your way out of it:
Keep your mouth shut and your head down. The worst thing you can do is try to talk yourself out of any situation with law enforcement because the only thing you're going to do is make it worse. If you're being suspected of being drunk in public, say absolutely nothing. Everything you say is going to be used against you, that's not just something you hear on TV. That's true.
Basically, what they're going to do is they're going to say that your speech is slow and slurred, that you reek of an alcoholic beverage, that you're unable to form sentences, that you were incoherent. The less you say, the better off you are. Easier for your defense attorney later on.

While the president-elect is tweeting over her, a giant rooster with his haircut is cock-a-doodle-doo-ing in China.
Perhaps inspired that real-life bird that looks like the former reality TV gameshow host who won the presidency last month, an artist China has unveiled a huge (read: yuge) rooster statue in Taiyuan, Shanxi, China. The bird resides just outside a shopping mall for all to see.
According to Mashable, “The statue was commissioned by the mall's owners and miniature versions of it are reportedly being sold inside and on the Chinese ecommerce site Taobao.”
One things for sure: That rooster’s got cool hair.
