Fenway Park had a special guest come out and sing God Bless America during the seventh-inning stretch. Darla Holloway is undergoing chemotherapy to help her in her fight against lymphoblastic leukemia.
Takes place in Russia: check. Crazy sick moves whilst making shawarma: check. "Mortal Kombat" theme music: double check. Machete skills: off the chart check.
Thug Notes is back, y'all, and this time they are crackin' an egg of knowledge on you about Steinbeck's classic, "Of Mice And Men".

VSauce tackles the reasoning behind clapping, the "most common human body noise that others are meant to hear". As is normally the case, this video is chock full of data, so it clocks in a little over 10 minutes, but it is oh so informative.

It's been a while since John Green and Mental Floss have graced our fair site. Thankfully, their numbered list videos are still as fascinating and entertaining as they have always been.

This crossover of Honest Trailers and How It Should Have Ended is gloriously wonderful, and as we are fans of both of these great channels here at Paisley Beard, we pass it along to you. Also, obviously, SPOILERS if you haven't seen "Star Trek Into Darkness" yet.
Thug Notes tackles the original Middle Earth tale itself, "The Hobbit". Why watch three movies when Sparky Sweets, PhD will give you the breakdown in under 5 minutes?

In this blow-for-blow remake of the infamous "Family Guy" Chicken Fight, you will be amazed at the skill, time, and number of bruises that went into its creation. Color me impressed, even if I don't give a flying fuck about "Family Guy" anymore.
Whether or not Premal Shah planned this, it is still the most glorious entrance to being picked on "The Price Is Right" that has ever been. Consider the bar raised.
Conan O'Brien recently pointed out (ha! See what i did there?) to Harrison Ford that he has a certain acting technique. And since we love Mr. Ford on late night television, it was a glorious thing to behold.

Belated Media has done the world yet another service in this new 16-minute-long video. Continuing his "What If?" series, he tackles the "Star Wars" prequels, using logic and good storytelling to make an ACTUALLY INTERESTING AND GOOD STORY. Sheesh Lucas, you messed up big time, and it's really obvious from watching these videos. If you somehow have not seen "What If Star Wars: Episode I Were Good", I have been nice and embedded it below as well. Enjoy!

This fascinating video was captured by Valerie Choument and her team from Pasteur Institute in Paris, It shows that what the already gross mouthpiece of the mosquito is quite flexible which allows it to search through the cells to find that sweet sweet blood vessel without having to fully exit the body. Think about that the next time you get bit.

Here be spoilers, so do not watch if you are not fully caught up. Otherwise, Screen Junkies does their first television Honest Trailer on the critically-acclaimed "Breaking Bad".
