The most satisfying video in the world?

Hey, let’s have some pleasant distraction from the cares of the world.

The following video bills itself as “the most satisfying video in the world.” Now, I don’t know whether it’s the most satisfying, but it might just be the most effective clickbait, if not in the world, at least that I’ve seen today. And it does deliver something that I wouldn’t exactly call “satisfaction,” but certainly pleasure and/or interest.

In other words, I wasn’t sorry that I clicked on it. And doing so also had another benefit; it called up a host of related and similarly distracting and interesting videos on the right sidebar at YouTube. So, enjoy, dear readers!

    Congrats neo, problem solved.

    Perfect fit is also compelling

    That was a worthwhile distraction in that it kept my interest. Unusual amalgam–the vent filter and rug being cleaned?? If I had to choose a favorite it would be the birds formed on paper with 3 drops of ink. I can think of a number of people that would enjoy watching this.

  4. Gringo Says:

    Well worth the time. A tribute to what the human hand and mind can construct.

    Another visual treat: Emerson students honor Boston with one last stunning 4K timelapse video. The links have more videos of Boston.

    I have a love-hate relationship with Boston. The old red brick buildings, among others, enchant me- a beautiful city. I always liked visiting friends and family in the area to give me an opportunity to get into the city- if I wasn’t already in it. I remain loyal to Boston sports teams. The corrupt lefty politics disgust me. My experience is that the worst drivers in the country are to be found from Route 128 on in. But at least you can get around pretty well on the subway- a.k.a. the T. And yes, there are some people- not many- who merit being called Massholes.

    Very nice…but I was sure that from you Neo, there’d have been dancing on there. 😉

  6. Philip Says:

    I found the Perfect Fit vid almost as satisfying, or maybe more so, in a different way. It’s difficult to pick.

  7. chuck Says:

    I noticed the bouncing jello 😉 When I need a break I watch SpaceX launches and SR-71 takeoffs. They are good for repeated viewings.

  8. parker Says:

    That is not the most anything, but it is (flashback) groovey. It even had a bit of jello. Thanks for making me smile.

  9. AesopFan Says:

    Well, that was nice indeed, as were the other two.
    I am amazed at what effort people will put into creative endeavors, or into making productive ones creative.
    And then there’s the time spent by the amalgamater in making the montage beautiful in itself.

    I confess to being partial to the craft-stick fuse, what with being a Cub Scout leader for about 25 years now (in fact, I am relaxing after helping a herd of 9-yr-olds plant flowers tonight).

    Thanks for the serenity moment.

    I had seen the tree-felling before (now there’s faith), but the car parking stunt was amazing (that’s faith AND hope).
    And lots and lots of practice.

  11. Mrs Whatsit Says:

    The crows flying out of the tree. Ahhhh.

  12. mollyNH Says:

    I have always considered flowing black lava that random ly breaks to reveal the red hot interior very compelling. I should make a DVD of that and GET RICH !!!

    To all:

    At the moment, at least a portion of that awful glitch is back. I have posted 3 new posts today and they are not showing up yet.

    They may show up soon. The glitch may be very temporary.

    I will be talking with my host and trying to fix this (although I am busy with other things for several hours, so it may not happen right away.)

    I am going to look into a permanent fix, either changing hosts, changing themes, or both. My apologies if you have trouble with comments today.

    I just noticed the problem, so hopefully it may not last too long. Now I’ll see whether this comment posts properly.

  14. neo-neocon Says:

    Fortunately, the comment above posted correctly, at least on my computer. I will update as the day wears on.

    I am hopeful that the 3 new posts will show up soon, as well.

    Please let me know if you have any problems commenting, or seeing the new posts.

  15. neo-neocon Says:

    I have also just noticed that although my new comments are showing up, the number isn’t reflecting the additions on the main page. That’s a minor part of the glitch, but it’s still not as it should be.

  16. neo-neocon Says:

    One more thing—I have noticed that everything is loading properly on my smartphone.

    Perhaps the problem is only happening on certain browsers, or on certain devices. Odd, very odd.

    Again, please let me know whether you’re having problems commenting or viewing new posts. Thanks!

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
