Ah, the Jetovator. Of all the frivolous inventions over the past century, you might be the best. These hydro-power jetpacks and bikes have made for some fantastic YouTube videos, from that news anchor who crashes immediately upon take off to now, this real-life speeder bike chase from Star Wars.

In celebration of the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the team over at the Devin Super Tramp recreated one of the most famous scenes from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, the speed bike chase. And yet, they managed to bring it to the next level: They did it on water.

Using the Jetovator water bike, Devin Super Tramp and a team of adults and toddlers (playing the adorable Ewoks) recreated the whole speed bike chase on water. It’s actually pretty startling how close they come to topping the original and makes you wonder why they don’t make all those dang Star Wars movies on water. Why they could just call them Star Waters? Wait, that won’t do. Maybe Water Wars? I don’t know. We’re workshopping it.

Devin Super Tramp actually has a bunch of cool videos of real-life recreations of fantastical stuff, like “Pokémon GO meets PARKOUR in REAL LIFE!” Heh. They should just call that one “Parkour-man GO!” Right? We’re still workshopping that one too.

Yes, Beer Yoga is Real. Yes, It Will Get You Up at 8 on a Saturday Morning

Namaste, get into your downward dog positions, and crack open a cold one. Class is in session. 

Perhaps in an effort to get beer drinkers and hell raisers into the ancient art of meditative stretching, a German Yoga studio has created a form of yoga mixed with barley and hops. BierYoga, the German Beer Yoga studio, combines "The joy of drinking beer and the mindfulness of yoga compliment each other, and make for an energizing experience," according to their website.

Now with a studio opening in Australia, Beer Yoga has crossed international waters. Check it out and sign me up.

Who says you can’t go home again?

Roughly five-and-a-half years ago, The Slo Mo Guys had were skyrocketed to YouTube fame after they hit their own co-host Dan in the face with a soccer ball. It is a day that shall live in infamy

However, because Dan lost a bet a few weeks back, the other host, Gav, gets to relive the magic of hitting his friend in the face with a water-logged soccer ball. And relieve it he does. Again. And again. And again.

This video definitely delivers what’s promised. This dude gets hit in the face with a soccer ball, and the Slo Mo Guys play it back again in super slow motion, going as far as 1000x slower.

Check out the original video below!

I'm not in the business of telling people how to do their jobs, but if you're an elected official and want to instill trust in your constituents, show up with a Captain America shield.

Lan Diep proudly wore a Captain America shield on his arm while taking the oath of office this week. 

Dan Liep says there's "no metaphor."

“Except that it represents America’s ideals and I do hope to aspire to those ideals of fair play, equal justice, and democracy during my term,” Diep said. “But really, I just had this awesome shield and I wanted a chance to show it off.”

So wear that shield. Your constituents will either love you or think you don't take this job seriously at all. One or the other!
