Things that are cool (1)

Posted on April 2, 2010


Just figured I’d throw out some random items from the net, both old and new:

This video proved to me that our darkest secrets can be made into viral sensations.

This video showed the awesomeness of having way too much time on your hands.

This video is just plain cute.

This video is the Ultimate Showdown (and will always remain thus).

And then there’s:

The scary people of Wal-Mart.

The scary world of American holidays.

And my personal favorite: the epic fail.

The one thing that boggles my mind is the idea that my daughter won’t know about any of these when she’s a teenager.  I can hear the conversation now:

Me: Now here’s a great video clip.

Her: Oh dad, that’s so lame!

Me: Well, what would you consider cool?

Her: This.

<<seconds of silence as we watch a video or review a website>>

Me: … What the hell does ‘blumgastic’ mean?

Her: Dad, please don’t ask questions like that when my friends come over.  You’ll make me look like a splurge.

Okay, maybe it won’t be quite like that — I do have a tendency to watch too much Futurama — but I know it’s a practically a law of physics that no matter how hard the parents try, they still manage to become disconnected with their offspring.
