How does Trump bring the world to its knees in 140 characters? This YouTuber things he knows the answer.

President-elect Donald Trump, the reality-TV gameshow host who won the presidency last year, can cause an international incident with only the power of his thumbs. Through Twitter, Trump delivers the unfiltered id that is our next four years, but what is he looking to accomplish by sending so many into a panic? There isn’t a whole lot of room for nuance or explanation in a Tweet, and those details are critical. Now, as his incoming press secretary said that he’ll be making major policy announcements via Twitter, it’s worth understanding how Trump tweets.

This video from the Nerdwriter does a great job breaking down the tweets by device, tone, and punctuation to come to this conclusion: Trump isn’t using Twitter like a politician, he’s using it like regular person. Trump tweets for impact, and he knows how to do it. The Nerdwriter gets into some of the science of tweeting and more. Check it out.

Yesterday, we posted that YouTuber Adam Saleh— who is known, in part, for a recent airport security-related hoax — was allegedly thrown off of his Delta flight for speaking Arabic. Since then, both he and Delta have responded.

While Saleh maintains his position, Delta has claimed that he was removed because "he sought to disrupt the cabin with provocative behavior."

However, as many were quick to point out, whether or not this is a prank, Islamophobia on planes and other places remains a very serious and prevelant issue.

YouTuber Adam Saleh was allegedly forcefully removed from his Delta flight today for “speaking another language.” He posted a video to twitter of the whole event and then live tweeted it.

Saleh, a YouTuber with over 2 million subscribers, uploaded the video twitter where it has been retweeted over 450,000 times. To put that in perspective Donald Trump usually tops out under 170,000 retweets. 

Delta released a statement saying that they are investigating.

Making things a little murky is the fact that Saleh was already exposed this week for hoaxing an airport prank, in which he forced himself into a suitcase and was checked in to luggage.

You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. So YouTuber Jim Casey complied the shots that worked out.

In his video “The Most Beautiful Shots In Movie History,” you can see the most beautifully constructed shots of all time, and man, is it relaxing. With shots from Star Wars, Casablanca, Gone With the Wind, Days of Glory, The Shining, and more, you’re sure to see some of your favorites in here, and you might even leave with a new appreciation for the craft that went into them.

Also, check out part two, which opens with a clip of Orson Welles’ saying, “I thought you could do anything with a camera that an eye could do or the imagination could do. I didn’t know there were things you couldn’t do.” These videos prove him right.

So chill out with these two videos and the some of the most impressive shots in history.

“Wow. What an awful year 2016 has been," says everyone always. Everyone except the celebrities, YouTube Stars, and living memes of YouTube’s 2016 Rewind.

This is a packed event filled with references to everything that happened this year, except the really, really bad stuff. Well, there's a reference to Bowie passing, but that's it. It's all good times from here on out. Let’s see what we’ve got here:

  1. The Rock
  2. The guy water bottle flipping guy
  3. PewDiePie
  4. Dude Perfect
  5. Something called “I Had Cupquake”
  6. The dude that does magic but covers his mouth electrical tape
  7. The starts of this thing that has over 2 million views



  8. Seth Meyers
  9. Daniel from Damn, Daniel
  10. Carpool Karaoke
  11. Colorful lighting
  12. Pokémon Go
  13. The Slow Mo Guys
  14. Flash Mobs
  15. MUCH, MUCH MORE

Look if your video went viral last year and you’re not in this thing, it’s time to get a new agent. Yeah, I’m talking to you, Misha. Where you at? 45-million views. WHERE YOU AT?

Like everything on YouTube, it’s a real mix of things that are annoying, entertaining, ridiculously cheery, and downright confusing. But that’s what the internet is about, and honestly, it’s better than the other half of the internet, which is startlingly depressing and usually asking you to protest Star Wars.

The world is filled with questions, so many questions that’s hard to tell which one to answer first.

And then some questions are just unanswerable, even if you’re asking the smart people at MineCon ’16, the annual Minecraft Convention.

One little boy asked said question, and it has left us stunned. Pulling the plush purple pig off the top of his head and raising his hand to get the moderator’s attention, the boy asked simply: “How do you know if somebody is acting as if they were a good person, but in reality, they’re technically not a very good person?”

Wow. Life comes at you fast.

Mark Twain once referred to golf as “a good walk spoiled,” and these dudes are looking to spoil a spoiled walk.

Using a a golf simulator, some garbage, a leaf blower, and a bucket of hail, the team at Dude Perfect are showing us what it’s like to golf in extreme weather. And it's not that pretty. 

via Paper

But that’s not all.

They’re leaving what weather and how you golf up to chance, using a weather wheel and a wheel to determine where they would be hitting from. They spin the wheels and do what it says. Then, the other dudes make it happen, which mostly means pelting their friend with garbage.

The Elf on the Shelf is a horrific Christmas tradition.

Designed to scare children into good behavior, the Elf is a cheery-eyed Santa crony. He monitors children for the big man, reports back, and ultimately decides whether you end up on the naughty list or not.

Or so we’re told.

via GIPHY

Since 2004, the Elf on the Shelf has terrorized children with its watchful gaze and frozen smile. Well, it’s time to pay the piper.

The father-son team over at What’s Inside took a razor to the Elf recently to reveal the plastic, cottony innards and shut down this ruse once in for all.

via Imgur

So what was inside? Did the spirits of a thousand convicted murderers flutter out of the Elf’s stomach?

Well, not exactly. It’s mostly just filled with catharsis, plastic beads, and cotton. Still, pretty great to watch this little creep get torn to shreds.

You hear it every year:

“Turkey makes me sleepy because I’m a wittle baby.”

You’re probably so sick of hearing that, and not just because you invited a giant talking baby to your Thanksgiving again, but also because it’s not necessarily true.

via GIPHY

Wired has taken umbrage with the idea that the tryptophan-heavy turkey is what causes the Thanksgiving tiredness. In fact, as they point out in this bite-sized video, it’s the whole meal that makes you tired.

From soup to nuts, or whatever Thanksgiving metaphor that works better for this article, the whole meal delivers a hardy mixture of tryptophan and carbs. Ugh, not them again. Basically you get tired because all the food you eat contains these chemicals and all the carbs in potatoes and stuffing you cram down your gullet on Turkey Day force your body to slow down and digest.

Check it out the video and be the smartest person at the table.

A series of massive earthquakes hit New Zealand this morning, and one YouTube vlogger caught the experience on video.

Omega, a who runs a gaming channel from his home in New Zealand, sat down to record his latest episode, when an earthquake, measuring 7.5 on the Richter Scale, began. Understandably, he seems quite shaken up by the whole experience, but luckily, he was safe.

While the video doesn’t really show the full danger of this earthquake, it was quite severe. This isn’t the first earthquake to hit New Zealand this morning. CNN reported on the series of earthquakes that triggered tsunamis and aftershocks that “left at least two dead.”

According to CNN:

“The first event, a 7.8-magnitude quake, struck just after midnight Monday near the coastal community of Kaikoura, some 93 kilometers (55 miles) northeast of the city of Christchurch”

“It triggered waves of 2.49 meters (8 feet) above usual tide levels, the highest he has seen in his 38 years in New Zealand, Philip Duncan of Weather Watch New Zealand said.”

An initial tsunami warning was lifted but temblors continued Monday afternoon. A 6.2-magnitude quake struck around 1:30 p.m. 39 kilometers west-southwest of Kaikoura, further north of Christchurch.”

Check out the video above.

If you’ve ever considered yourself a disgusting person, a daily affirmation for many, then you might want to ask yourself, “Have I ever eaten my new-born daughter’s placenta?”

If you answered no, then breathe a sigh of relief for you’re not as gross as you thought you were. Feel free to go outside and engage with the rest of society, fly a kite, and smell a flower. The world is your oyster.

If you answered, “Yes, I have eaten my daughter’s placenta,” then meet Aaron Curtis, “skinny natural bodybuilder,” who ate his first born’s placenta,

via RuPaul's Drag Race

Curtis’ video “Consuming your daughters placenta for extra natty gains!” is filled with mystery. For instance, Curtis never broaches why he eats his daughter’s placenta or what kind of “natty gains” eating the “organ that provided her life during pregnancy” will offer. He does cook his daughter's placenta into oblivion in a panini press to stave off botulism, though, which is its own kind of weird reward. He also never mentions if this video is real or not. We’re hoping for the latter as much as he’s hoping for natty gains.

Anyway, check out this disgusting video and spend the rest of the day trying not to throw up!

If you listen to Steve, that guy who stands at the end of my block holding a sign that reads “The End of Nigh,” then the end is nigh. Steve’s foresight that the world might be coming to an end should launch you into action, perhaps learning some important survival skills on how to survive the apocalypse. Sure, it’s important to know how to skin a deer with a paper clip, but also important, learning how to open a can of food with a spoon because the irony of having 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife is no longer going to scare us.

Or are we?

Luckily for you and Steve, a YouTuber is here to help. Popular Life Hacker Dave Hax, who should rebrand to "Life Hax" immediately and has taught us how to make a chocolate Coca Cola bottle and "magnetic slime," has the solution we've been looking for. In this video, Hax teaches you how to open those pesky Campbell's chunky soup cans with a spoon. Use this information well. When the mysterious race of cloaked mutants has taken the world’s supply of can openers, this video could save your life. 

Be ready. Stay alive. Stock spoons.

Need a little color to brighten your day? How about a lot of color?

NASA engineer-turned-Youtuber Mark Rober thinks you do.

Together with the team at Eclectical Engineering, Rober built a couple of pump-powered Super Soakers that will douse your opponents in paint. He even calls in a favor from YouTube inventor Colin Furze for some last minute tips on how to give his nieces and nephews the blues, literally.

The video, with its high-quality slow motion, is a colorful distraction. The fact that you can't play with this thing will have you seeing red... and orange and blue and green.

Following a delightful song and dance number between Late Show-host Stephen Colbert and an innocent ragamuffin, the Mayor of Candytown himself, Jon Stewart, dropped in to offer the audience some “toffee from an old man’s pants.” But upon learning that Donald Trump is running for president, Stewart, who’s a little out of the loop these days, gave his patented spit-take salute in surprise. Time to get back to work… after a little Yentil, for which there is always time.

Hamilton's Javier Muñoz, an astronaut, a crossing guard, and, of course, an adorable orphan joined other classic symbols of Americana, Colbert, and Stewart on stage to remind the audience to get out and vote. Make this old man’s wish come true, America. 

And now, what we’ve all been waiting for, gifs of people doing spit takes!
