How observant are you? Take a look at this Color Changing Card Trick. Can you spot the trick? Well, it’s not what you think…
I just watched this hilarious music video “I Go Chop Your Dollar”, hosted on Youtube, featuring a song performed as though it was sung by one of those 419 Nigerian scammers.
The lyrics, deciphered by CrunchGear, are as follows. You’ll need it because in the manner of a typical Nigerian scam, the sentences are replete with grammatical errors so it’s hard to catch what they’re singing.
I Go Chop Your Dollar
I don’t suffer no be small
Upon say I get sense
Poverty no good at all, no
Na im make I join this business
419 no be thief, its just a game
Everybody dey play am
if anybody fall mugu, ha! my brother I go chop am
National Airport na me get am
National Stadium na me build am
President na my sister brother
You be the mugu, I be the master
Oyinbo I go chop your dollar, I go take your money disappear
419 is just a game, you are the loser I am the winner
The refinery na me get am,
The contract, na you I go give am
But you go pay me small money make I bring am
you be the mugu, I be the master… na me be the master ooo!
When Oyinbo play wayo, them go say na new style
When country man do im own, them go de shout bring am, kill am, die!
Oyinbo people greedy, I say them greedy
I don see them tire thats why when them fall enter my trap o!
I dey show them fire
Techdirt points to EA’s response to the criticism about EA’s golfing game, where due to a bug, players can make Tiger Woods stand in the middle of a water trap to take a shot. They put out a commercial that shows that the real Tiger Woods can really do such a thing. It’s hilarious! And a brilliant PR move.
The Youtube video can be found here.
I’m sure you’re sick of the start up tune that Windows XP plays. I am. Well, this video actually makes the XP tune beautiful. It was composed/played by Jim of Seattle who makes his music available for free download over the Internet, and some of them are quite good.
The MP3 of this tune is available directly from the composer’s site.
Here’s an amusing video featuring music made from sounds found in every Windows XP and 98, you know, the start up sounds and so on.
Due to my perverse sense of humor, or maybe because I spend so many hours in front of a Windows computer, I found it rather funny.
If you were to have a site that you planned to close, so that it will make you exactly $0 – zero dollars – will you refuse an offer from someone to pay $11 million for the dead site? The dead site in question is Stage6, a popular video sharing site that closed at the end of February this year. Well, DivX did exactly that. They ignored an $11 million offer to buy Stage6 five days before it closed. They’re still refusing it to-date – even though Stage6 is no longer generating any income for its founders and the offer is still open.
Is this weird or not? This continues the mystery that began with rumor that they were making millions from the Stage6 site at the time they closed.
This is really sad news: Stage6, the free video sharing using DivX, is going to close at the end of February. It’s really sad, because it was one of the better video sharing sites around. Unlike YouTube’s crappy video quality, Stage6′s videos are high quality, and you can zoom to full screen without seeing any pixelation if the person who created the video uploaded a good quality version. YouTube’s videos can never be anything but crappy since the resolution is restricted to 320×240.
I guess with the demise of Stage6, I can finally uninstall my DivX. The only reason I installed it was to watch Stage6, which doesn’t work with the free Xvid codec.
