This Weatherman Can’t Stop Laughing

Yes, the weather is laughable

For certain parts of the country, the weather this year has been completely laughable. (Avert your eyes, Los Angeles dwellers.)

Between the unseasonable cold spells, unending downpours and serious lack of spring weather, it should come as no surprise that the meteorologists are starting to crack up a bit under the pressure of reporting rain, rain, snow in April, and then some more rain.

At least that’s why we assume WGRZ’s weatherman Andy Parker broke into a three-minute long giggle fit while trying to report the weekly weather forecast on Tuesday.

If you can’t laugh at the terrible weather, what can you laugh at? Oh right, this.

Smooth Moves: The History and Evolution of Honda’s ASIMO Robot

As the robotics realm continues to heat up, Honda’s ASIMO (short for Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility) is something of an old-timer.

It’s been around for 14 years, and has seen continual improvements – check out the above video for more of the backstory.

While some robots have a more menacing look – ahem, Atlas – ASIMO has always played the part of a cutesy, Jetsons-style robot meant, in Honda’s words, “to help those in society who need assistance.”

In that spirit, ASIMO is able to do things like opening and serving beverages. It knows sign language – both Japanese and English. It can avoid bumping into people in hallways. Stuff like that.

At the International Auto Show in New York last week, Honda showed off ASIMO’s latest improvements. The robot, once relatively rigid and… well, robotic, is now far more nimble, able to run, jump, climb stairs and kick soccer balls with more human-like dexterity.

Game of Thrones’ Red Wedding Gets The Disney Treatment

Sorry, Prince Charming!

Game of Thrones’ “Red Wedding” episode has gone down in the annals of cultural history as one of the most jaw-droppingly brutal hours of television ever. Roughly, 1,570 of the 1,579 total killings in the HBO series took place during the episode. So naturally, it’s prime for a Disney makeover.

In the new video, Cinderella and her Prince Charming stand in for Robb Stark and his pregnant bride, eager to share their special day at a celebratory feast with their friends, family and allies in the Magic Kingdom. Those in attendance include Ariel a.k.a. The Little Mermaid with her man, Eric, along with Mulan and Snow White, Sebastian the Crab and various adorable animated mice.

Cinderella’s evil stepmother has other plans though. Despite Ariel doing her best Catelyn Stark-esque impression and delivering heartfelt pleas alongside threats of brutality, no one makes it out alive.

But who’s behind the violence? Spoiler alert: It’s a Disney princess getting in touch with her inner Arya Stark.

This Dog Totally Thought She Could Fly

Woof

While the word “fail” gets bandied about the internet a great deal, it really, truly suits this video. Why? Because when this eager dog comes tearing across the living room with an eye for landing on the couch and gnawing on whatever is in her mouth, she is absolutely 100% convinced that she is going to make it. She’s certain of it. Convinced. Until she’s not and is instead face first in the furniture. We’ve all been there, puppy dog.
