Coluber constrictor priapus is not venomous. The videographer just recorded an animal suffering and dying needlessly, when they could have easily rescued it. :(

Good grief. This video did not need to be nearly 6 minutes long. :|

He could've covered every feature of this bike lock in under 30 seconds..

What were they doing at 2:30?! Blast fishing with a hand grenade?

They're lucky to still be alive.. (if they indeed are).

Broken nose, definitely.

Why does it say 'Serbian forces 2003-2009' in the subtitle when every single time-encoded video clip clearly states either '1999' or '2000'?

+9 13. Giles commented 14 years ago on video To the edge of space in a spyplane

The whole documentary is awesome. If you've got BBC iPlayer - James May at the Edge of Space. Highly recommend it. :)

If you don't have iPlayer, I'm sure at least the intelligent ones among you are capable of figuring out how to use a torrent client.. ;)

+3 14. Giles commented 14 years ago on video Giant water slide

@#8 The initial slide is real, but he stops out of the camera's LoS at the bottom. Flight is composite effects and there's already a guy in the pool. Add some terrible over-acting from the supporters and DONE.

It's from Brit comedian Adam Buxton - the quiz was real, but the genuine caller was overdubbed. Do you seriously believe that daytime TV would get away with 'fuck' and 'shit'?!

+1 16. Giles commented 14 years ago on video Three Atheists

Two points :

1. Fox's 'The Half-Hour News Hour' wasn't funny, which is why no-one watched it. Which is why it got cancelled.

2. Blasphemy is a victimless crime.

If you think this is genuine, you're an idiot...

...and yes, it is that simple.

In case a) you care, and b) you didn't know, Pete did the voice for Darth Maul.

Heh heh.

It's funny, 'cause it's true... :P
