Home Just...wow.

The Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan has become a really smart guy to have on your talk show, especially when the topic is music streaming and the industry. His wit, electricity and using his voice makes a must-watch. But back in 1994, he sat down with Nick Cave for his own interview, and it’s…um….strange. I get the sense that these two would be yakking away off camera, though. Trust me on this, ALL of us who talk on TV or the radio stunk for a long, long time, so much respect to Billy for not walking out.

HOW DID WE SURVIVE AS A SPECIES WITHOUT THIS?

Ross Langley made this cassette sharped coffee table with custom made steel legs and removable remote and bottle holders. The label can be used as a whiteboard allowing him to write custom titles in true cassette tape style. I wonder if it comes with a giant pencil.

Only old people will get that.

Lucky would be an understatement to describe one man in Canada.

Peter McCathie survived being hit by lightning when he was a teenager and now he’s won the lottery — both events combined come to about a 1 in 2.6 trillion chance.

McCathie is splitting the $1 million Lotto 6/49 prize with co-worker Diana Miller, the Atlantic Lottery told ABC News today.

He’s getting an additional $10,000 since he owns the Amherst Shore Country Store in Amherst Shore, Nova Scotia, where the duo bought the $3 ticket.

McCathie’s first experience of defying odds — a nearly one in one million chance — happened when he was 14 years old and wading through shallow waters.

“I was trying to lock the boat up, it was a very sunny day, there was one big, white cloud in the sky and the lightning bolt came through the trees and hit me,” McCathie told CTV.

McCathie survived the lightning strike and now years later, he told CTV he plans to use his unexpected winnings to take his wife of 30 years on a second honeymoon.

Apparently, this trick by Paul Annett is an old one, according to commenters on YouTube, but I’ve never seen it before, and it deserves it’s own place in the mind-blown magic segments. It’s called This, That and The Other, but really, it should be called HOLY CRAP, CAN YOU DO THAT AGAIN?

Phoenix radio DJ Paul “Neanderpaul” Marshall has taken the time to complete the wholly unnecessary but altogether enlightening task of sequencing “almost every AC/DC song ever recorded” — he omitted the few of their tracks that utilise the classic fadeout — because he “thought it’d be ‘funny’ to see how many times AC/DC ends their songs in a similar fashion”.

The result? Well, let’s just say that you should probably prepare yourself for more power chords than you could shake the horns at over the next two-and-a-half minutes (plus a few hilarious vocal spasms for good measure). And, yes, these are all taken from different songs.

“It took a LONG time to go through,” Marshall wrote. “I promise you, no song was repeated.”
