You’ve Got Ride: The AOL ‘You’ve Got Mail’ Voice Actor Is An Uber Driver In Cleveland

This is a quick video of Elwood Edwards, the voice behind AOL’s “You’ve Got Mail”. Apparently Elwood was paid $200 for the voice work when he did it back in 1989, and now, 27 years later is an Uber driver. I mean it’s kinda sad, but $200 for 5 minutes of work back in ’89 is pretty sweet. Also, I’m sure this guy is rolling in residual cash from that movie You’ve Got Mail which I haven’t seen but assume is based on his life story. Anyway, here is the video for your enjoyment. I fear for the day when Siri becomes a JustEat driver in Burbank. Also, is it just me or does he not really sound like the voice? Advertisements

You think I’d have more friends: A Video of Human Population Through Time

Whitney Houston might have been a little off with that whole believing children are the future thing… I know we usually deal with pop-culture and cross-over themes but hey, it can’t hurt to be educational every once and a while. This is a pretty cool video by The American Museum of Natural History showing the Earth’s growth in human population over time. Let’s just say we’ve had a more productive past couple centuries when it comes to baby making: It took 200,000 years for our human population to reach 1 billion—and only 200 years to reach 7 billion. After watching this I have realized that we already have geeks and nerds to thank for all the technological advances we’ve made and now we gotta thank them for saving the overpopulation issue. Ya know, cause they aren’t getting laid thus no kids. The future is saved! Enjoy.

Guy Predicted Cubs Winning 2016 World Series In High School Yearbook Quote 23 Years Ago

Suck on that Back to the Future! That’s right, back in 1993 a fine young gentleman by the name of Michael Lee in his senior year at Mission Viejo High School (which I can only guess is a school for wizards) accurately predicted the Chicago Cubs winning the 2016 World Series. He claims that the prediction came to him in a dream. So if you run into this guy and he tells you when you are gonna die, start drinking chocolate sauce and punching police horses because your days are numbered! I assume we all want to punch a police horse before we die. Check below to see a needless video which really just takes a minute and a half to point out all the information you can see by looking at the picture above. Enjoy!

Cause Why Not: Baby From Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’ Album Cover Recreates Photo 25 Years Later

This is a photo of the baby from Nirvana’s cover of the album Nevermind all growed up. His name is Spencer Elden and in case no one recognizes him from his iconic album cover, he made sure he had “Nevermind” tattooed across his chest. That way he can talk about how he is the baby on the cover anytime he is topless, which I assume is most of the time. I mean, look at him. Am I little upset he didn’t go completely naked to really capture the true essence of the original cover? Sure, but I mean, pools are cold and I don’t think Spencer wanted to show that he became a man everywhere but in his nether region if you catch my drift…I’m talking about his penis and how cold water would make it look like a baby dick. Okay?
