Rare And Well-Timed Moments That Went Against The Odds

Given the amount of time we spend just existing, it's pretty likely that we're bound to see a few unlikely occurrences and rare moments in our lives. But thanks to the fact that there's a lot of us all existing at the same time, doing all sorts of stuff, rare moments and unlikely occurrences happen way more frequently than they feel like they should. And that's kind of cool.

Theories abound as to why this statue is moving in place at a Manchester museum (vibrations in the class caused by frequencies being admitted from a faulty fluorescent light, among other science-y possibilities), but we'd like to think that THE CURSE OF THE PHARAOH IS UPON US.

Mario's good at a lot of things: Running, jumping, getting big, turning into a fire dude, being a doctor, plumbing, painting, and driving a go kart. 

One thing he's not particularly good at is being a real-live human being. 

YouTuber CrowbCat made a few modifications to the trailer for Super Mario Odyssey, the game that sticks Mario in a realistic urban setting, which only highlights how weird looking Mario really is. He did them one better, stucking a 6-foot tall Mario inside Grand Theft Auto, so you can see how gross it is for Mario to go to the strip club. Weird.

The idea of Mario, not only disrespecting Peach this way, but also engaging in any type of sexual situation makes me sick to my stomach. But aside from that, you can see Mario drive and explode in a helicopter, fall off a building, and meet a hail of gunfire at the hands of the Liberty City Police.

This is CNN, and this… is the end of the world.

That's probably the last thing you will hear right before this video is aired on live television, as the the zombies tear through your neighborhood, the aliens blast through the White House or a giant asteroid crashes into the Earth's surface.

Jalopnik writer Michael Ballaban, who used to be an intern at The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, has unearthed this "Doomsday Video" that CNN will reportedly play at the end of the world. He found it on their database one day with a note to "HFR [hold for release] till end of the world confirmed."

Regarding their final broadcast, CNN's founder Ted Turner once told The New Yorker:

"Normally, when a TV station begins and ends the broadcast day, it signs on and off by playing the national anthem. But with CNN — a 24-hour-a-day channel — we would only sign off once, and I knew what that would mean. So we got the combined Armed Forces marching bands together — the Army, Navy, Marine and Air Force bands — and took them out to the old CNN headquarters, and we had them practice the national anthem for a videotaping. Then, as things cranked up, I asked if they'd play 'Nearer, My God, to Thee' to put on videotape just in case the world ever came to an end. That would be the last thing CNN played before we — before we signed off."
In a note on the site, Ballaban says they won't disclose any details about who actually leaked the video to them.

"It's not something we've been sitting on since I was an intern in 2009. While I've been aware of its existence since then, it was only acquired after I came onboard here at Jalopnik," he writes.
