This is the video for an IndieGoGo campaign called September 11th Redux with a goal of $1.5 million. The key quote from the information section of the fundraising campaign is this: "We are like a Mythbusters for September 11th." That pretty much says it all. These people want a lot of money to recreate 9-11 in whatever country they think will actually let them do this. 

Who knows if they will reach their goal/be allowed to drive an extremely large aircraft on autopilot into a building. But hey, if you donate $125 you'll get a T-Shirt that says "9-11: THE REDUX" which will be awesome for those of you who love explaining your clothing to the TSA and Federal officers.

LA Meteorologist, Liberte Chan, was wearing a sparkly cocktail dress for the morning weather report. Maybe it wasn't the most appropriate attire for the occasion but apparently it was a just a backup because the outfit she had planned didn't work with the green screen.  As a follow up to the incident, she and her other co-anchors read some of the emails she received. She and her other coworkers maintain that the sweater incident was just a joke in light of all the emails but other people weren't so sure. There was a lot of outrage on Twitter, in additon to some people supporting Chan and her fancy outfit.

George Zimmerman claimed self-defense when he shot and killed a young, unarmed man named Trayvon Martin in 2012. He was acquitted of all charges and now he's selling the gun as "a piece of American history".  

Maybe his confederate flag business isn't doing so well? 

Bidding starts at $5,000 and he is literally planning to use some of the proceeds to fight Black Lives Matter activists, or as he put it according to the video "fight [Black Lives Matter] violence against law enforcement officers".

Why? We don't know. The makers of 'Chambong' say that it's awesome but it doesn't seem like they've done any studies that substantiate that claim. If you're wondering how it even came about, we do have the answer to that one according to their website:

The origins of the first Chambong came about in early 2014, during a moment preempting the Super Bowl. We had an epiphany the week prior of the big event to create a “Super…Bowl.” The resulting device of our imagination harnessed an ability to hold an extraordinary amount of cannabis, however was sadly non-functional as a smoking apparatus. Fortune would prevail several evening later, while onlookers examining the piece remarked at how it looked like a fantastic wine “shooter”.  They promptly filled it with Champagne and experienced the resulting magic…And thus was born the glory that is — The Chambong.


And their reviews are pretty good/weird.

This is a promotion in the UK to encourage people to try a new Nutella filled Krispy Kreme donut that will start being widely available May 27. The money from the promotional donut sales will go to charity. The video description offers more information:

Krispy Kreme, the American purveyor of all things doughnut, has unveiled an ATM-style contraption in London's Holborn to activate its new Nutty Chocolatta flavour.

The limited edition doughy treat is filled with the popular Nutella sandwich spread and, according a 'leaked memo' PR stunt from the brand, is set to be available nationwide on 27 May.

Krispy Kreme is giving fans the chance to preview the Nutty Chocolatta until 21 May by way of the Hole in the Wall contraption.

Devised by Devries Slam and delivered by creative technology agency Kerve, the system allows passers-by to touch their contactless card to a reader and pay two pounds for their individually-wrapped doughnut. This is presented on a cushion accessed only when a door opens after payment.All proceeds from the activation will be donated to Teenage Cancer Trust.

This surfboard is meant to take the isolation out of the sport of surfing. It gives real time social media updates and text messages. It even helpfully offers up to date information on the conditions of the very ocean the surfer is presumably sitting in. 

At the moment, it's still a prototype so only time will tell if it becomes a super useful gadget or just another way to lose your phone at the beach.
