We’ve spoken before of the peculiar charms of Will It Blend? in which Tom Dickson puts household oddities in a Blendtec blender to ask the question the four-year-old inside of us is just dying to know. This week, special for Valentine’s Day, Tom gives a supercharged whir to diamonds. Will they last forever?
A few weeks ago, a Video Digest friend sent us the following video, an old classic by Chuck Jones called The Dot and the Line: A Romance in Lower Mathematics. The 1965 cartoon is a charming tale about the vicissitudes of love. As squares, I think we all know what it’s like to fall for a line.
Not sure what it says about my romantic feelings, but I really enjoyed this footage of a centipede eating a tarantula. And dude, I’m not even stoned! I am, however, totally tweaking on crystal meth.
In the end, Valentine’s Day is really about celebrating the thing we love mostwhether it be a loved one, a new addiction to crystal meth, or a dancing piece of salmon sushi. Mmm, salmon sushi. I know who’s getting my chocolate hearts this year.
