Not matter what your living arrangements are you’re probably doing better than these people in Japan who find themselves living permanently in cyber cafes. It amounts to a space that’s a four square meter box with a screen and a computer, which is on offer 24/7 for anyone who wants it.
Taken from Louis CK’s 2016 ‘Live at the Comedy Store’ this standup routine shows Louis talking about his kids growing up. One of his daughters is going to be 18-years-old soon while the other is 9. The nine year old has just started tap-dancing lessons, so Louis laments how although he loves watching his daughter tap dance, it also means he has to watch other kids, and adults, dance too.
If you ever wondered how the president gets around and how much it costs to transport him, this video from Wendover Productions explains all—and it’s not just about Air Force One, but about the whole process.

Just in time for the sequel to the surprise hit, Honest Trailers have given us a hilarious look at John Wick. For one it points out that Keanu Reeves seems to have a penchant for playing characters called John, so far the count is eight. But it also pays him some dues for the fact that as an “immortal 50-year-old” he can kick ass as well as he could in his 20s.
