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 suit

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 Has 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

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.

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.
