The Reincarnation Machine: Who Might You Have Been in a Past Life?

Who were you in a previous life? To help you find out, Slate Magazine scraped tens of thousands of people from Wikipedia and built the Reincarnation Machine. Type in your birth date, and the machine will match you to somebody who died on your birth date or close to it. Then, it will match that person to somebody who died close to his or her birth date, and so on through history. Were you Elvis Presley? Lyndon Johnson? A Welsh stage actress? Type your birth date at http://goo.gl/BuiAb6 to find out!

Yeah, like I almost believe this stuff. I still want to see the documentation!

The Scots are a proud people. The are also fiercely proud of their accents. However, that accent can occasionally be a disadvantage, as shown in this YouTube video of two Scotsmen who are frustrated by an elevator that uses voice recognition. (Warning, some profanity is in the video.)

You can watch the video at http://youtu.be/PJj_nO46gq8 or in the video player below.

Going Back to Work after a Few Years Absence and a Change in Technology

This is perhaps the shortest video you’ve ever seen, so pay attention… A woman goes back to work after thirty years.

Watch carefully, the video is only 5 seconds long, but you’ll get it. If you’re younger than 40 years old, you probably won’t understand it.
