I've watched this a few times and I can't decide if it's staged or not. I'm leaning towards not. If it's not staged, then the title for this should fall into "Never Play The Lottery" territory. If it is staged though, it's still pretty cool. This guy's either lucky or good . . . perhaps both. If I keep watching dashcam footage, I'm eventually going to want one.

NASA doesn't just get the cool toys now. They also get Johnny Cash-worthy colors. There is a version of black that absorbs 99.5 percent of light.

NASA plans on using the material to help trap unwanted light around their telescopes, so they've shot the material to space for further testing.
There's a lot to despise about humanity. The service van that can't get around this incident fast enough is a good example. Look, however, at all the people that stopped to help out this poor woman and young child inside. The YouTube video description has more info on what happened if you're curious. The short version is that without any action on the strangers' part, this likely would have been fatal for the people inside the car. (via Jalopnik)
For this Friday entry, a group I don't necessarily care for all that much, a song I don't necessarily like all that much, but a message that I think's important. (Please note, I don't dislike it, just not my normal "thing"). Have a good weekend, everybody.

Ack! I'm late! Sorry! Here's Dave Grohl, Josh Homme and Trent Reznor in the same video! Ah!
Have you ever wondered what The Matrix might sound like if they replaced the entire soundtrack with nothing but old school video sounds? You're in luck. Thank you Ben for bringing this to my attention.
