The first time I saw the Power Rangers was in the early nineties while I was an exchange student in France and I thought it was pure violence, because you know, I couldn’t understand any of the dialog. Not that the dialog in modern iterations is any better.
Oh, how wrong I was. This is a very dark deboot experiment. NSFW. There’s also a Youtube version that according to the Vimeo site is safe for work but really, they have a funny definition of “safe for work”. I found it hard to hear the dialog, must be a Power Rangers thing, the sound effects tented to drown out voices.
Neither version is safe for kids to watch. You’ve been warned! (via io9)

The Waterbird here isn’t one of the flying species, it’s a hydrofoil device a person can ride and propel by jumping up and down! First I’ve ever seen of them, and probably a great way to keep fit.
This is quite inventive. It’s amazing how much trash they picked up in only two hours or so after a storm. Cork could do with that in the winter.
A horrific road traffic advert from New Zealand. Thanks Anthony.
