A film student just made one of the best animations ever. Wow.

Chapman student Jack Anderson tells the story of a chance encounter between two mining robots on a desolate planet.

The cute robot protagonist looks like something Disney might come up with. But then, the animation takes a turn, becoming a metaphor for greed and self-sabotage, rooted in irony and futility.

"My biggest inspiration for the story was to show how us humans are constantly ruining relationships over the smallest things," Anderson said. "This is something everyone's done so I wanted to encapsulate it in a very contained fable. It ends up being a pretty universal thing people can connect to."

Wire Cutters went on to win a slew of awards -- even becoming a finalist for a Student Academy Award.

Drawing On Water-It is So Surreal!

A cool trick that could entertain you for hours...
In this video I show you how to draw on water with a regular marker. You can make your drawings animated by moving the water. It looks so surreal to watch a stick man become animated in real life. This is a new take on the dry erase marker stick figure trick. I talk about what is happening to make the dry erase marker ink float on top of the water to make these animations come to life.

Aquadam House saved from the flood

Thanks to Hurricane Harvey - the first major hurricane to make landfall in the United States since Wilma in 2005, (ending a record 12-year drought in which no hurricanes made landfall at such an intensity in the country), videos have been resurfacing and viralling once again of a Texas man whose property remained dry during a flood after he built an aqua dam around his entire home, over a year ago. This video was created 7 months ago...

People thought Randy Wagner was crazy when he drove from Texas to Louisiana to pick up a $8300 Aqua Dam, but after the horrible floods in Texas the investment proved invaluable.

What is this Brain-Like Blob Found in a Lagoon? | National Geographic

The Lost Lagoon that is - an artificial, captive 16.6-hectare (41 acre) body of water, west of Georgia Street, near the entrance to Stanley Park in Vancouver, Canada. Who knew it harboured such slimy 'creatures'...

Strange animal blobs that look like human brains have been discovered in a Vancouver park. Lost Lagoon, a pond just north of the city center, contains a population of bryozoans. They live in colonies of genetically-identical individuals connected to one another, and wrapped around a wad of slime. The bryozoans' presence had either gone unnoticed until now, or may have migrated north from their former range.

What Would Happen If You Never Showered?

We know a few people who only shower once a week - and they never stink, at least not that we've noticed. But they don't do workouts. They just go to work. Maybe it's all in the genes?...

Hygiene is extremely important, and to prove it, let's discuss what happens if you NEVER showered.
