Alan Watts makes the great point that we can not determine who we are, what we do and how we live, solely based on our past or ancestry, and must instead seek live more in the present to not just enjoy ourselves but also to lead a fulfilling life.
NO, this is not real... obviously a fake but had me with the first two sounds, which may or may not be real.
Now I seriously want a bird that can beatbox the Sienfeld theme even though I know they don't exist, pretty funny though... I'll have to purchase the original "The Life of Birds" DVD now to see if those first two sounds were real or added still can't decide.
Buy it yourself below if its also bugging you:

A recent scientific study undertaken by the University of Bonn in Germany suggests that the universe could be one giant computer simulation.

The chosen fruit slicing one shows what Fruit Ninja would like in real life, in slow motion, set to dubstep. Special thanks to Halfbrick Studios (creators of Fruit Ninja) for their support of the video. They were a blast to work with and were completely open to the crazy ideas.

Written by Robert Smigel of Triumph the Insult Comic Dog fame, this infamous sketch is nothing short of the greatest takedown of nerds ever. What I'd like to know is exactly how much input Shatner had into its creation. Given how natural his performance is here and the fact that he later named an autobiography Get a Life!, I'm guessing a significant amount (it's easy to imagine the folks at Paramount showing this sketch to every new Trek cast member in preparation for the sorts of nonsense they would have to endure once they hit the convention circuit). While nerds enjoyed this because it hit so close to home, everyone else relished how relatable it made Shatner seem. Interesting enough, this six-minute clip says more about the human condition than the entirety of Star Trek's original run. Of course, there are many of you wonderful geeks who will argue this point with me in the comments. Which just makes this clip all the more biting, funny and true.

In the 500-400's B.C. (historians argue about the exact dates) Gautama Buddha was a young prince and spiritual teacher from India. Later, his teachings became the philosophical basis for Buddhism.
This BBC documentary covers the Buddha's life, from a young prince to a drifter, traveling and seeking the reason for "Dukkha" [problems] of human life. Watch as he finds the reason of Dukkha and begins to teach a Middle Way to live life.
Makoto Nagano rocks!
He won the original Sasuke, a long-running Japanese TV show that placed 100 ninja wannabes in a tournament to get through a series of increasingly difficult obstacle courses and challenges.
Nagano was probably the only real ninja of the lot of them... what him in the final obstacle course as he kicks its ass.
