Blue ball machine (no, not that kind)

Be mesmirised by a very complex .gif involving blue balls in a machine. Then, when you've had enough, check out this rather silly but also tragic accompaniment.

Ahem, that should be mesmerized, or mesmerised, depending on where you're from. Sorry.

I thought this was a true story until I saw that professor's last name.

Oh, now I get it! That's how they make microphones.

That's a cool gif. And a cool ymtd. The response would only have been funny if there was a "NOOOOOOOO" in there somewhere.

All three of those ytnmd.com subsites (including the NSFW site mentioned in the comments) are fantastic and made me laugh out loud. Top notch!

Who is ytnmd.com anyway?

Wow, they're good for something other than photoshoppery? That's neat in a visually explosive way.

I love the little guy whose head gets yanked off by a machine then replaced by a blue ball every few seconds. All he's trying to do is operate the controls, but his head keeps being ripped off.

Sounds like a job I had once...
