GROUNDHOG DAY: Just How Long Was Bill Murray Trapped…

Happy Big-Huge-Rodent-Comes-Out-Of-The-Ground-And-Attempts-to-Predict-An-Entire-Season-Day (or as it’s called by everyone else…Groundhog Day)!

While the day in itself is important, for many, the bigger association is a certain Bill Murray movie of the same name.  For years, people have wondered just how long Phil Conners was trapped in that tiny town of Punxsutawney…was it a few months, ten years (as Harold Ramis first suggested), or a lot longer?  One man thinks he’s figured it out…

ObsessedWithFilm writer Simon Gallagher took his site’s name to a whole new level and has written an in-depth analysis of just how many days Phil was stuck.  Using clues from the film, such as how long it would take to train to be a ice carver, piano player or card thrower, different quotations, and the basic days shown, we have possibly the most complete view of what the man may have gone through.

The final number Simon got: 12,403 days, or almost 34 years!

Check out the read right here, and try to catch the marathon on ENCORE today to see if you could follow just as well.  And if not, one of the best scenes right here for ya!

This Cellist’s Rendition Of The ‘Inspector Gadget’ Theme Song Is So Good!

You don’t need Go-Go-Gadget-Hearing-Aids to hear how cool this cover is.

There are a few theme songs that are instantly recognizable and one of them definitely belongs to Inspector Gadget. YouTuber, Samara Ginsberg, not only shared her cello composition but also played all eight parts needed to perform the cover perfectly. The sound of eight cellos working together enriches the cartoony tune of the original, making the cover feel more appropriate for someone like James Bond. Talk about an epic mashup idea!

Folding Phones Are Now A Thing! Check Out The Samsung Galaxy Fold

It’s really happening. Could the days of mocking people with flip phones be over? But wait – there’s more. This phone as SIX cameras — three on the back, two inside, and one in the front for when it’s folded. I can’t even count how many selfies that adds up to.

It’s almost two thousand bucks. For now. But it expands from nearly 5 inches as a phone to a 7 inch tablet. Will it make me breakfast???

It sounds cool but I’m worried that eventually I’ll be too old to figure out how to use anything anymore. I’ve already stopped trying to program my favorite TV channels into cable system because it just seems to complicated.

MUST WATCH VIDEO: “How Spies Use Disguises” Is The Most Fascinating Video You’ll Watch All Day.

Published

This is CRAZY, COOL, and completely COMPELLING. The former CIA “Chief Of Disguise” (yes, that exists) shows just how sophisticated the process of disguising an agent has become.

Jonna Mendez once held that title. Here, she shows how she transformed agents’ identities with nuances both subtle and dramatic. She even shows how she once brilliantly demonstrated a lifelike mask to a former President. It turns out all the crazy stuff I saw on Scooby Doo as a kid was really possible!
