A Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over The Lazy Dog Finally Made Sense

This video is actually nearly a decade old now but hey, if we never heard of it, it is still newsworthy, right? Anyways, I am sure you have heard of the famous pangram, “a quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog.” You know, the sentence which everyone picking up the art of typing will need to master? Well, if that sentence makes zero sense to you, apart from containing all the alphabets, then Jashi, a quick (and super adorable) brown fox, is here to help you make sense of it. In this video, Jashi playfully tried to jump over Romi, a nonchalant Akita dog and eventually succeeded, and thus dispelling the argument of the pangram makes no sense.

Sorry Folks, Electric Cars May Not Be As Green As You Thought To Be

Elon Musk is deeply concerned about how automobile emissions are destroying the world as we know it and hence, the man is a fervent proponent of electric cars (and also, hence Tesla Motors). But are electric cars really as green as we think? Well, you don’t need Adam from truTV’s Adam Ruins Everything to tell it is not quite so. First of all, where do you think the electricity that your lovely Tesla Model 3 needs is from? The grid, of course and where did the grid get the electric energy from? Obviously, the power plants. Now, the source of the electricity pretty much determines whether the electric car you drives is mostly green or not.

Nothing Much, It Is Just Casey Neistat Being Hauled Into The Air By A Drone

That’s not Santa Claus, though that did took place in Finland and aptly, in a small village where real-life Santa lives. It is just YouTube celebrity and filmmaker Casey Neistat in Santa getup, who instead of riding a sleigh pulled by Rudolf and friends, he had a snowboard and a giant-ass drone. When we said giant-ass, the drone really is a giant-ass multi-rotor aircraft. Drone of this magnitude is not commercially available and so, Casey’s team took about a year to design and put together an eight-rotor drone that has not only the power to pull Casey across the powdered ground and up the hills, but also lift him high up to the air.

Domino’s Japan Use Reindeer For Delivery To Beat The Extreme Snow

You know how Domino’s Australia and New Zealand are making strides in autonomous delivery? And you would think Domino’s in Japan, a country known for technology and robots, would do better? Well, not quite. Ok, to be fair, tech wasn’t quite involved here; instead a reindeer was used. Wait, what? Yes, a reindeer. You know the hoofed animal with antlers which legend has it that Santa uses to pull his sled? Yea, that reindeer. Then again, reindeer shouldn’t come as a surprise since Hokkaido is b*tch ass cold this time of year and with it, comes tons of snow covering the roads which makes reindeer the logical fit for the job.

Want A Rock? Nordstrom Is Glad To Sell You One With Leather To Boot

Well, it looks like Amazon isn’t the only place where you can acquire weird stuff. As it turns out, Nordstrom has at least one really weird thing you can buy: stone. Ok, to be precise, it is a leather wrapped stone, which is aptly called Medium Leather Wrapped Stone. Duh. I guess at 85 dollars a pop, Medium Leather Wrapped Stone is one of those things a person would buy if he or she has pretty much everything in life. Anyways, a little more about this curious rock. Apparently, this naturally occurring hard mineral matter hails from Los Angeles (hmmm, L.A., stone?) and the leather it cosy in is handcrafted by artist Peter Maxwell at his L.A. studio.
