Battlefield 2 Top Gear remake

Here’s a YouTube video that brings together two of my favourite things: my favourite TV show (Top Gear) and my favourite PC game (Battlefield 2).

It’s a remake within the Battlefield 2 game environment of Jeremy Clarkson’s task to out-manoeuvre a British Army Challenger 2 tank. It lasts about 8 minutes.

Popeye on Family Guy

On Friday night I returned from playing at Powerpoint, Edinburgh and sat up watching two episodes of Family Guy on TV.

This is one of the funniest clips I’ve ever seen. I was crying uncontrollably, with tears rolling down my cheeks. And in the cool light of day, I still find it incredibly funny.

Why you should never mix alkali metals with water

This video clip (from the Sky One TV show Brainiac, featuring the ever wonderful Richard Hammond and the splendidly clever and down-to-earth Jon Tickle) is what the internet is all about: it’s educational, informative and fun. Oh and it also shows common household objects being (safely) blown up, which is always a bonus.
