Dropping a Giant 1200-pound Pumpkin into a Pool from 100 Feet Up [Video]

Check out this video where the folks at the “Bauman’s Giant Pumpkin Drop” event drop a 1200-pound pumpkin into a pool from a crane that lifted the thing 100 feet in the air.

From Here is Oregon:

Bauman’s Giant Pumpkin Drop is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: taking a cast-off giant pumpkin, hoisting it 100 feet in the air with a crane, and dropping it into an inflatable pool.

This year, the pumpkin in question was a 1,200 pounder that had developed a hole during its growth. It began to rot and wouldn’t be able to be entered in the festival’s Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off, which lead it down a different path, one equal parts spectacular and brief.

Yep, they sure do know how to have fun in Oregon!

I’m Not Crying, You’re Crying: Exclusive “I Love You 3000” Avengers: Endgame Pop 2-Pack Pre-Order Briefly Returns

Last year, when the “I Love You 3000” Avengers: Endgame Pop 2-pack appeared online, it quickly got sold-out. Now, the exclusive POP! figures will be available again for a brief moment at 1PM EST / 10AM PST over at POP IN A BOX, and they’ll likely sell out very quickly once again, so if you want one, better place in that order quickly!

One of the saddest scenes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Avengers: Endgame has had the internet collectively sobbing over the stand-out moment involving Tony Stark and the now-iconic line “I love you 3000.”

The line was first was spoken when Iron Man puts his daughter Morgan to bed. Just before he closes the door, Tony says, “I love you tons,” and Morgan replies, “I love you 3000.” The next time the line is spoken is by Tony at his funeral. He speaks to Morgan through a hologram coming from the Iron Man helmet, making a heart-breaking moment for Marvel fans.

Adding to the angst, Robert Downey Jr, the Iron Man actor requested that the line be in the movie. “I love you 3000” is something that his own children say to him- next time you watch Endgame you’ll need and extra box of tissues.

These PIAB EXC Marvel Morgan & Hologram Tony Stark with Helmet EXC Funko Pop! Vinyl 2 Pack Figures come packaged in a window display box and measure approximately 3-3/4 inches tall.

Can you Solve the Risky Disk Riddle?

Your antivirus squad is up against a code that’s hijacked your mainframe. What you’ve learned from other infected systems, right before they went dark, is that it likes to toy with antivirus agents in a very peculiar way— and you’re the agent that’s been selected to go up against the malware. Can you figure out which disk that runs your mainframe has been corrupted? James Tanton shows how.
