Aaaannnnddd…it’s back! Another edition of Epic News! Hit the jump to see what you might have missed this week
Man Rides Shark, continues surfing afterword
JonnyNero: This guy must use a lot of Old Spice.
Dave: Thankfully for shark populations and general darwinism, stunts like this often result in copycats.
Oz: Next up, shark rides man.
Qs23: There has got to be a Chuck Norris joke in here somewhere.
A surfer in Hawaii gets attacked by a tiger shark. Instead of pissing himself, he rides the shark instead.
Bill Nye and SSBB have something in common
JN: I…don’t see it
Dave: Neither do I.
Oz: I do, and I am delighted.
Qs23: I thought it was cooler when I thought we were talking about Bill Nye as the voice.
A savvy gamer has realized that the announcer in Brawl and the announcer on Bill Nye the Science guy are one in the same.
Awesome Anamorphic Illusion…using fire!
JN: Way too much time on his hands.
Oz: Man sits on fire cube. Internet goes wild.
Qs23: And now here is an illusion of me actually caring about this story… “OOOOooo”
A man uses candles to fuck with your mind.
If only this were true
JN: Hello McFly!
Oz: He’s a dude in a sweater with a brownie camera. Come on guys, would a time traveler dress like a hipster after the Great Hipster Purge of 2032?
Qs23: I guess some people are just fashion forward.
In true internet fashion, this picture pops up, is found not to be digitally altered, and people claim the guy is a time traveler.
Man wants The Doctor to be patron saint of England
JN: Where do I sign?
Dave: Only if we can make the Stargate theme the UK National Anthem. (See the end of: http://rapodcast.net/postset/view?id=141 for the explanation of the inside joke)
Oz: And Jedi the official state religion.
Qs23: I have a counter suggestion of George the Tortoise from Blue Peter. (Google and Learn)
Adam Rutherford proposes a new saint for England. One of the time traveling variety
Man gets hung at Apple
JN: And this year’s Upperclass Twit of the year award goes to…
Oz: ohhh nooooo the new iphone leaked and now we’re stuck with tons of free hype and publicity ohhhhhh noooooooooo
Qs23: And now we have to wait until June for everybody to finally shut up. Great.
Not really news, since you’ve probably already heard it, but some genius was at a bar with the next iPhone, and left it there when he left.
Oh those crazy Japs
JN: I hear Tony buying his plane tickets now
Dave: I’ll go if it’s Wing. The other series sucked.
Qs23: Didn’t theme resturants go out of style in the 90′s?
Japan has a new cafe…that has a gundam theme.
Valve takes another shot at their competitors
Dave: I thought it was more like a nod to a fellow contender than a jab.
Oz: I personally thought the jab was to anyone not playing on PC, and thus shelling out actual dollars for the new content.
Qs23: I personally thought the jab was a frying pan to the face of a zombie.
Much like the achievement you get in L4D for killing one more zombie than there are in Dead Rising, Valve has put another jab in it’s new DLC for L4D2
This is going to make me get a PS3
JN: So now all I need to know is if the Stig is a playable character
Dave: Only if they include every car from every episode of the show. THEN I might look into buying a PS3.
Qs23: Welcome to the news from 2007.
JN (again): Except that it was all talk, no research was made for programming…so…there
Oz: Some say…
There have been rumors abound about this, but never officially confirmed, until now. Polyphony has wrapped up taking measurements and aerial photographs of the Top Gear Test Track for the upcoming Gran Tourismo 5.
Speaking of Top Gear
JN: and HOLY CRAP! Adam Ferrera is one of the hosts!!
Oz: The track record of US remakes of British shows is…. mixed. Let’s hope this doesn’t suck.
Qs23: Let’s hope it’s better then Top Gear Australia and pray it’s better then Top Gear Russia.
A US version is coming to the history channel…and won’t try to be different from the BBC version
