>YouTube Tuesday: Archimedes Principle & frying a turkey

>I’d like to think that Archimedes is rolling over in his grave right now as he listens to this hillbilly referencing the famous principle whilst preparing to drop a turkey into a turkey fryer. I guess the important question is how this dude knew about Archimedes Principle yet still F’d up the pretty simple act of dropping a turkey in a fryer. My record for successful turkey fryer drops is 4-0 and I did not know what Archimedes Principle was prior to seeing this video. I guess the lesson to be learned here is that Archimedes Principle makes you stupid.

It’s idiots like this that give turkey frying a bad name, but keep sites like YouTube in business. So, let’s all give thanks to this idiot hillbilly turkey fryer and YouTube this Thanksgiving.

>Infomercials make us colorful

>I LOVE infomercials. The cheesy products, the cheese-ball hosts, the craptacular music…what’s not to love about them??

What I particularly love about a good infomercial is the radical transformation the product promises; namely, changing your world from one of black & white, clumsy, sad and frustrated to technicolor, coordinated and HAPPY! You perform tasks faster, you smile, your appearance is anything but unkempt. How did I get by in my black & white world before discovering this amazing product?

Not sure what I’m talking about? Watch this…

See what I mean? I put the Handy Peel on and BAM! I’m a coordinated peeling professional IN FULL COLOR! Sweet potatos? Please. Bring it on… There’s nothing I can’t peel with my Handy Peel, in full color.

I’m posting more of these from now on. Commercials like these make the world go ’round, and add color to our daily lives. Literally.
