I am a big fan of Google Video. Not only can we watch coverage of tragic events, but we can see clips of people that do things they shouldn't be trying at home.

Or anywhere else for that matter.

I've taken a screengrab from one of broadcast industry trade paper TVWeek's Daily Viral Videos. I get an email linking to these videos each business day.

So here we have an exquisite production called "Fire Fart." This features some dude in the U.K. imitating "The Human Torch," Johnny Storm. And, with broadband, you can watch this clip without all that PITA buffering you get on dialup.

So hey lookit. Porn begat the video industry, so who are we to say that very stupid human tricks shown on video can't be a ontributing factor in terms of getting broadband holdouts to sign up?

But as to this specific clip:

Judging from the angle of the flames, it looks like our protagonist is either planning to fight his odiferous fart with fire, or he may not be planning to father any children anytime soon. And given that he would presumably pass these dumb traits to his kids, maybe the human race would be better off not having to deal with any offspring of this person. But then, probably things wouldn't go this far. I mean, what woman would have him?

Final takeaway: hey its Thursday. That'd be the day after Hump Day.

Now tell me I didn't make you laugh, and you didn't deserve to.

So let's get on with our lives now, can we?

    .... but it is already Thursday in the real world!

    Actually, I find broadband to be only as fast as the website
    servers. When I run ZDnet's "bandwidth" test I get phenomenal
    speed results, but ZDNet still loads dog slow.
