At some point these guys will run into the ping-pong kid and the sunglass-throwing guys and all hell is gonna break loose.

Didn't know Harry Potter had a big brother. (Btw. he needs all that water to rinse down all those cigarettes).

Ha. I was thinking "this is pretty good" until I saw him balance a bottle of water on his foot ... the third time.

This is driving me nuts that I can't remember either the artists name or the name of the video, but this reminds me a ton of something I saw I think at the Centre Pampidou a couple years ago. It was a 50s PSA-style video (black and white) wherein people were doing the same sort of things (throwing waste paper effortlessly over their shoulder without looking and as they're walking away, and having it land straight in the trash, etc.), while there was a narrator talking about how this was the right way to be, and how to overcome your failure to be like this. It was awesome, and my favourite thing that I saw at the museum. Anyone know the video I'm talking about? I'd love to be able to turn it up on YouTube (I'm sure it's there somewhere).

it would be fun to see the edit where everything misses. thus it would be much closer to my experience of a normal day.

I have this high shelf where I keep all the tissue boxes. Periodically, I find myself trying to get a loose box -- usually the small, side-table size -- up on top of the other boxes in back so I have enough room for other stuff on the shelf. I can generally do it in about six tries.

It does beat the effort to bring a chair in from the other room. But sometimes the box is just barely secure up there ....

Am I the only one who assumed this was all variations on this trick?

(Er. russm did it first. Do I have to watch all the comment video links now? Sheesh.)
