I hate to rain on all your parades (and now firmly expecting a huge minus rating) but most of these are not "painful", not all of them are "accidents" and they are far from "fresh" (@ #5).

A good compilation, nonetheless.

+1 6. Team42 commented 15 years ago on video Airplane landing

It is City of London Airport, and as far as I can remember, it has a steeper glide slope than most civil airports due to the close proximity of the buildings around it. COnsequently, only certain aircraft with STOL capabilities can use it. And that's a BAE 146 the pilot is attempting to bury into the tarmac...

That was one hell of a dodgy landing. Seems that the pilot left it a bit late to flare out at the end. At 0:07, when he's directly over the threshhold, he appears to be (a) very close to the ground and (b) almost parallel to the runway surface.

Still, he could have been in a hurry to get home for tea... ;)

+5 14. Team42 commented 15 years ago on video Gun making in Pakistan

@ #14 I'd be surprised if any of those guns reached the Pakistani Army. This "cottage industry" exists to fulfill the needs of the local populace and has been, to a degree, hijacked by the terrorists. Gun and ammunition manufacturing are only two of many trades prevalent in the North West Frontier Province. Need a water pump for your truck? Second shop on your right. Plough broken? Come round tomorrow and I'll have a new one for you.

Guns are a way of life there, having been introduced by "Western Civilisations" approximately 200 years ago. Not all the locals are terrorists. And not all the terrorists are locals. More importantly, to the Pashtuns, the definition of a "terrorist" in the context of their homeland may be entirely different to the commonly accepted western view.

Secondly, as a fan of hot peppers, I'm surprised he was able to talk as clearly. I've had some reasonably hot ones (usually by mistake, and nothing as severe as he's talking about) and I couldn't speak intelligible English if my life depended on it. There's usually a lot of "Oh, s**t, ow, ow ow, f**k, ah! ah! that's hhhhhhhhhhooooottttttttt!!!!!!" etc, etc instead of reminiscing about the birth of your first child.

-1 32. Team42 commented 15 years ago on video IFAW: Gorilla Remix

Don't worry. If you haven't seen the original commercial, you really aren't missing much. There's two of them (for Cadbury's Dairy Milk Chocolate): Phil Collins' In The Air Tonight, and Bonnie Tylers' Total Eclipse Of The Heart. They use the same footage for both commercials, but shown at slightly differnt speeds to make it look as if the "gorilla" is playing the drums. Neither of them worked. And in ths, the "gorilla" is missing. No big loss, to be honest.

Anyway, what the hell have gorillas and Cadbury's Dairy Milk got in common? The chocolate isn't even that good...

Oh, hang on. I've just got it! Endangered species. Crap songs. Awful chocolate. Could it be true that they are all disappearing off the face of the earth? It works on so many different levels... :)

Obviously fake, for the following (somewhat sexist) reason:

The driver of the car is female.

Did you see how quickly she was able to get in to the car, put her handbag on the passenger seat, adjust the rearview mirror (even though she was the last person to drive the car), adjust the seat (even though she was the last person to drive the car), pull down the vanity mirror, check her lipstick, search her bag for her lipstick, do her lipstick, check her lipstick again, redo her lipstick, adjust her hair, check that her hair adjustment is ok, re-adjust her hair, plug in her seatbelt, search her handbag for her keys (even though she had them in her hand when she opened the car), realise that she'd put the keys in her lap when she was checking her lipstick, find the ignition, switch the engine on, stall, switch it on again, check that lipstick/hair is still ok, look both ways, stall, check lipstick, etc, etc...?

It's a deliberate set up... :P

-5 39. Team42 commented 15 years ago on video Atmospheric cloud wave

While I hate to use the word "fake", this is complete shite in terms of the description. There is no "stable structure" moving through the clouds. Do a google search for the title and see what you come up with. Exactly the same video, the same description and yet nothing from a meteorologist. Because there is nothing to explain. It's time-lapse photography depicting normal atmospheric and meteorological conditions. Did you notice how many times the sun appeared to pass across the landscape, but the clock appeared to count only 39 mins? Watch it again. Go on....

Yeah, riiiiiight.

If you don't understand it, go back to school and do O level geography again.

It was a television advertisement over here, where parody, irony, humour (and a lot of other words that are generally misunderstood, misspelt or totally ignored by the colonies) actually have meaning.

Please don't ask for an explanation of the joke: it would be very embarassing. Not for me, though.

+2 55. Team42 commented 15 years ago on video Extreme Biking

#22 I've watched this again several times and I am willing to admit that, on the first occasion, the cameraman says "Merci". However, the next two times, he says something that sounds very diferent.

While I am not French or French-Canadian, I do have reasonably good hearing. However, I will respectively bow to your natively superior knowledge of the French language. May I ask you the following questions? I have some doubt that the cameraman was as polite (by saying "thank you";) as you have indicated.

How do you say in French:

1. "Excuse me, I'd like to pass."
2. "I'm passing!"
3. "PASSING!!!"

My questions are derived from the apparent activities of the two cyclists. They seem intent on passing all other cyclists in front of them. Almost at any cost. I don't think the "Merci" response fits everything the cameraman says on the downhill section of the videoclip.
Picture of Team4213 achievements

+2 56. Team42 commented 15 years ago on video Extreme Biking

#16 it's not "merci"; it's "passez" from the french verb "to pass". The cameraman is warning the rider in front he's coming though. Pity his mate didn't extend the same courtesy to the unsuspecting bikers he nearly forced off the track on numerous occasions (he seemed quite intent on passing everyone in front of him, regardless of the threat to the other bikers).

#24 To quote you "there is only at MAX 3 flights going to New Zealand from Australia per day...".

It's not very ambiguous, but I'm prepared to accept that you meant something else.

For your information, there are 7 international airports in New Zealand (quite high, considering the population of less than 4.5 million, excluding sheep...) and tomorrow (29 September 2008) there are 12 scheduled flights from Brisbane alone to New Zealand.

The more you look at it, the image in the video looks like a depiction of the number of flights (passenger, cargo, whatever) per day, but I strongly suspect that the image is, at best, representative rather than actual. Unless someone can point a link to the source of the image and then we can see what it really means. You kinda wish the person that posted the clip got involved here and put us out of our misery...

#19 And again, fake what? Without a key, it is impossible to tell what the image really represents, but to call it a fake is rather meaningless. Hence my question: a fake what?

Even if the composite is a year's worth, as you suggest, rather than a day's worth, the volume of traffic would be proportionally represented.

As to why there appear to be so many movements... perhaps you have little appreciation as to the volume of air traffic. Perhaps you should try looking at the flight arrivals for Auckland Airport that come from Australia. There are rather more than 3 scheduled landings for 27 September 2008. There are at least 7 from Sydney alone (if you generously consider that the 25 flight numbers may be shared carriages). But on the eta's alone, there's at least 7 arrivals from Sydney. And then there's the flights from Melbourne and Brisbane to consider.

And New Zealand has more than one international airport...

If you're going to speculate, at least do a little bit of research first. You'll come across slightly more credible that way.

+1 65. Team42 commented 15 years ago on video Air traffic worldwide

#12 #16 and #17 - fake what? It's not a live radar trace (radar doesn't extend the whole way across the Atlantic, let alone the Pacific). And it's not GPS, as GPS doesn't record positions of objects. Additionally, even an SR-71 wouldn't cross the Atlantic in such a short space of time (meaning that whatever it is, it isn't "live";).

As for what it is, I suspect that it is a synthesised representation of air traffic over a 24 hour period, based on the tidal flow of the North Atlantic Tracks (eastbound in the morning, westbound in the evening, relative to GMT) and the passage of the shadow from east to west.

#18 The link is, if you'd read my post, a much better similar prank: celebrity brought on to show under false pretences. Hence my phrase "A very crude version of a (staged) prank..." Of course, this is simply my opinion. You'll notice the comments above debating whether Damon being "stood-up" by Kimmel is real or an act. Similarly, Previn being brought on to conduct Morecambe is portrayed as real, but was, in fact, arranged.

As for the link being a "god damn piece of shit" and "nothing"... perhaps your appreciation of comedy is somewhat different to mine.

+1 69. Team42 commented 15 years ago on video Matt Damon on Jimmy Kimmel Live

A very crude version of a (staged) prank pulled by Morecambe and Wise in the 70's with Elton John, whose appearance on the show was frustrated over a number of weeks.

Better still, the famous Andrew Preview (Andre Previn) sketch (1971): Previn finally appeared on the show to conduct Yehudi Menuhin playing Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto. Instead, he got to conduct Eric Morecambe playing Grieg's Piano Concerto.

Much to Previn's horror, Morecambe proceeded to play something entirely different.

Previn stated: "You're playing all the wrong notes!"

Eric Morecambe replied: "I'm playing all the right notes, but not necessarily in the right order..."

As for the vid... Obviously the chappy who got hit by the door was off on the day they taught "Where Not To Stand" in "Raids 101" at Police Academy.

#6 No, you can't.

The perimeter fence is uniform in its height. These runways are typically in excess of 60 metres wide, and for 747-400s, are usually in excess of 80 mtrs wide. I doubt you saw anything resembling a significant variance in height over this distance in that video clip.

While I don't doubt the credentials of the airport, I find it very hard to believe that vehicles are allowed to cross the flightpath so close to touchdown, given the possibility of interference with the Instrument Landing System used on Cat II and Cat III runways. From experience, cross-runway thoroughfares, including those beyond the runway threshold, are closed when aircraft are on final approach.

That said, that video clip looks genuine and, more importantly, genuinely scary!!!

I'll take the boat, thanks...

The last cafe had an amazing number of CCTV cameras in it for such a small establishment. This, coupled with the fact that the idiot in the hat hasn't been beaten to a pulp yet leads me to think there's a certain amount of setting up involved in this so-called "prank".

#(removed comment)... What did/does 9/11 have to do with the War in Iraq? Surely it was just an excuse for Baby Bush to try to finish what Daddy Bush couldn't.

There are bigger problems in the world to be addressed: of course, not all of those problems have such lucrative side-issues.

As an aside: for all it's spending, the US war machine is, on the whole, pretty lame against these so-called insurgents. How many years do you think you'll stay in Afghanistan before someone realises that the Russians were there before you and they couldn't get anywhere either?

I'm with wanna (Poster #1): not her fault. Therefore, it's irrelevant as to whether the driver is male or female.

imapwnzu:

The 2 helicopters' rotors touched. You can just make out where they touch and then fracture. The rotational forces probably just tore the airframes apart in the air.

As for the gun-loader - he obviously didn't read the manual "Danger: Firing this gun can damage your groin!" I don't think it's an AA gun, unless they're shooting at a very VERY low-flying aircraft...

Some nice footage, especially the C-130. :)

But I suppose there were a few fatalities too. :(

While the debator is obviously a religious zealot (and, according to modern scientific understanding of planetary bodies, seemingly wrong), some of the argumentative posts here are ludicrous. The arguments against what he believes would be much stronger if (a) they were properly spelt; (b) properly punctuated; and, (c) demonstrated some knowledge of the Koran (Qur'an) to repudiate what he believes (realbone would benefit from this advice no end...).

Additionally, it's not that long ago that Western establishment disavowed certain tenets that are now held as being "gospel"...

Try reading this... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scopes_Trial

For Cheeseburger (Post 12)... There are Christians who believe and act the same way (see the link above).

For Chaimss (Post 13)...Sane...(not a believer myself though).

For Noobeater (Post 14)...And your qualifications on theology come from which internet university...?

As for mamlo7 (Post 15)... Could you say that again in a way some of us could understand what you mean?
