Ever wondered what a fight between a python and crocodile would look like? Well wonder no more, the video here shows the results of a five-hour battle between a snake and a crocodile. The python emerged victorious and made a nice, fat meal of the vanquished crocodile. The incident was captured by Tiffany Corlis at Lake Moondarra in Queensland, Australia; because that’s where all the weird shit happens.
You could call it gate to hell, or Sauron opening his eye. But we can discuss nomenclature later, the appropriate thing to do at the moment would be to run.
The video shows a 132 kV power line with the current arcing over to nearby trees and down to the ground. After a long period of extensive fog, wind and wet snow much ice and snow had accumulated on the lines and the weight brought them too close to the trees.

Harry Potter has been talked about a lot. So while people might not have watched the movies or read the books, they definitely have heard of the boy wizard. The video here shows people retelling the story of Harry Potter, except they have never seen Harry Potter movies or read the books.
The conventional old dot matrix printer was hardly good at anything, printing included. It was, however pretty dedicated to making loud sounds. It is this quality of the printer that has been harvested, of course with a bit of modifications, to actually create music rather than random sounds. So here we have it, a dot matrix printer playing several fairly complex songs and themes.
Pharmacy brand Apotek put up this creative advertisement at a subway in Sweden. The interactive display uses ultrasonic sensors to detect the arrival of a train. As the train arrives, the beautiful hair of the model flaps in the wind as she makes some attempts to keep it in control.
Batman takes on The Terminator and fights off Skynet in this sweet animated fan film. For a basic overview of the plot, Batman survived the August ’97 nuclear attacks in the Batcave. It has been thirty years since that time, and he is now allied with John Conner to take out Skynet.
The second trailer for Godzilla.
Now that looks promising.
Roads and highways can often make good makeshift or temporary landing strips. While the practice is not common, armed forces still do train for the exercise. The video here shows a F-18 Hornet taking off from a highway outside Joroinen in Sweden. Shot in 2011, the video shows the highway was closed off for traffic while the Swedish armed forces carried out the training exercise.
You probably have seen Thor: The Dark World by now, which makes it ripe to be presented in the form of the honest trailers we all so love and admire. “Get ready to revisit Thor: The Dark World! Prepare for another perfectly passable Thor movie while we all wait for The Avengers 2.”
