Goat Simulator: The Craziest Game Ever Made

Goat Simulator seems to have been created as a model of the Internet: make everything as crazy as possible, have nothing make sense, and make it as fun as humanly possible. In this game, your protagonist goat has near omnipotent powers, destroys pretty much everything it touches, and is impervious to damage. Enjoy this video of TeamFourStar member Lanipator playing the game as his character Vegeta from DragonBall Z Abridged. When a comedic voice actor meets a comedic game, comedy is sure to happen by default.

Foreign Languages Are Funny

Let’s face it: when people don’t talk American, it frustrates us. It’s almost like they don’t want us to know what they are saying. But sometimes, the tongues of Europe can actually be quite entertaining, such as watching the German dubbed edition of Star Wars. Darth Vader sounds even more terrifying in this classic lightsaber duel scene, like some sort of fascist robot from Hell, while Obi-Wan Kenobi sounds even cooler than the sultry sounds of Sir Alec Guinness, which didn’t seem possible initially. But Darth Vader’s voice…yeesh. It’s enough to give you nightmares. Enjoy!

Awesome Sports Montage

Sports represent everything that is good about humanity. The display of skill, endurance, dedication, and heart is why the turnstiles keep turning at stadiums and televisions remained tuned to the games despite ever increasing costs and complications. Sport is emotion laid bare: the exultation of victory, the joys of accomplishment, the desolation of crushed dreams, and the sadness of defeat, all on display for millions to see. We see in sports what we wish we could see in ourselves more often, which is why we watch. The above video is a spine tingling compilation of some of the greatest moments in sports, representing the spirit of why we play, and why we cheer.

A Marijuana Multiple Choice Test

Whether or not you’ve noticed, or cared, the freight train of marijuana legalization is gaining momentum. With Colorado already allowing John Q. Public to purchase the Wacky Backy and more states considering similar ballot measures for the upcoming election year, it is not a movement that can be ignored any more. Which is why organizations like Hemp.ly are currently trying to raise awareness about the benefits of nationwide weed legalization through videos like this nugget, in order to make the public more involved in the democratic process and to help them make their dream a reality. Check out the video, and if you would like more information on how you can help out, check them out here.

Sports Go Sports!

Sports, Go Sports! Athletics are Number One! Garfunkel and Oats’ latest anthem just gets better as it goes along and should probably be played in stadiums across the country.  Loudly. At ear-piercing volume if possible. Here’s a lyrical highlight:

“May the competitors you prefer
best their opposing equivalents:
So you can somehow feel connected to the feat of your self-appointed constituents”

This song ought to be sandwiched between Queen’s “We Will Rock You” and Jimmy Buffet’s “Cheeseburger in Paradise” at sporting events across the land, but will it? Well, it’s going to be up you, Golden Twist reader to make that happen. Petition the people who run the music at your local stadium, right now.

Before and After Drugs Photos, But Not the Kind You Think

We’re used to seeing devastating photos of people’s faces and bodies horribly disfigured by drug use. You know, the before photo of the perfectly normal, attractive twenty-something who, in their “after drug use photo” looks like an eighty-five-year-old homeless person. That’s the story the media loves covering. Hey, look at these perfectly normal people! Now, look at them after a few hits of crack! They’ve turned into hideous monsters.

But what about the flip side of that? What about the people who were heavy drug addicts until they started treatment–treatment that helped them achieve full recovery. The below photos tell that tale. And what a tale it is. The ten people in the following photos were big-time drug users until they made the conscious choice to turn their lives around and seek treatment. We here at Golden Twist thought the photos were remarkable.

Reddit Founder Alexis Ohanian on How the Internet Can Make You a Baller

Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian recently sat down with serial entrepreneur and This Week in Startups host Jason Calacanis for an entertaining interview in New York City. This Golden Twist reporter, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, had an opportunity to watch the event live. About 300 people turned out for the live taping of Jason Calacanis’ show, and they stuffed themselves with free sandwiches, chips, and cheese dip of many varieties. They also quaffed some good-old fashioned beer from beer bottles signed by Jason himself (ok, I made that part up, but that would have been funny).

Calacanis and Ohanian had never met each other before, but you wouldn’t know it from the show they put on. At one point, Ohanian and Calacanis looked like they were about to burst into an Abbott and Costello routine. The rowdy crowd enjoyed the act, hollering and loudly clapping throughout the interview. Overall, the Soho event was highly informative and enjoyable. Speaking of Soho, have you ever been on a Ghostbusters tour of NYC?

Anyway, I encourage you to watch the entire video above. Infotainment at its finest–that’s what they call this sort of thing. And the next time Jason takes his This Week and Startups roadshow to your city, grab tickets.

The Japanese Reinvent the Pocket Lighter

The fact that the Japanese reinvented the pocket lighter isn’t really a shocker, but what is a shocker — or rather, what’s incredibly wacky, zany and an absolute pleasure to behold — is the accompanying advertisement for the newly invented Japanese pocket lighter.

Think super-colorful, super crazy, oh-my-goodness-did-I-accidentally-drop-a-tab-of-acid-or-is-this-really-actually-happening kind of stuff. And it’s positively fantastic.

Just don’t watch the above video if you’re one of those people who are at risk of having a seizure because of flashing, bright, colorful moving lights. Or if you’re in any way creeped out by semi-lifelike, anime-style caricatures of lifeless everyday objects. Otherwise, be prepared to take a trip down the rabbit hole!
