"Do you know who I am?"
"I'm Ronnie Pickering"
Yes in a hilarious road rage incident, Ronnie Pickering squares up to an innocent moped rider, wanting to fight, and repeatedly asking him if he knows who he is!
Now clearly Ronnie Pickering is a well known geezer, the problem is that he is only known to himself!
Watch the videos and enjoy this idiot.
First let's look at the horrendous crime that the moped driver committed! Yes I have no idea either before you ask.
And here is the start of the road rage incident.
And still we have no idea who is Ronnie Pickering?

For an entire week of shows we invited celebrities to read the terrible things people tweet about them live in front of our studio audience. This is the live edition of #MeanTweets featuring Jeff Bridges, Kristen Bell, Benedict Cumberbatch, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Bette Midler, Liam Neeson, Emily Blunt, Salma Hayek, Andrew Garfield, Jack Black, Halle Berry, Tobey Maguire, Naomi Watts and George Clooney.
The miraculous moment when a pedestrian avoids being crushed to death by a runaway bus as it ploughs through a parked car knocking him into the air.
This is the shocking moment a bus in Beckton, east London loses control and crashes into a parked car which then catapults a pedestrian through a gate and into a small bush. The bus, accelerates and hits the car. The car is then forced across the pavement, top right. The car and bus continue into a driveway, before the man disappears into a small bush

Really great video showing that dogs understand us much more than they may like us to think!
"Original facebook video of Missy and Laydie after they destroyed my sweatpants and didn't want to fess up to it."
Today's sweet video is of a young girl called Avery who catches a 5 pound bass using a plastic Barbie fishing rod! Watch the excitement on her face!
Youtube user "Cargospotter" posted this incredible video of the HUGE Airbus A380 landing in Düsseldorf, with insane crosswinds, this pilot earned his wage on this day! I'm no Plane Spotter, but damn this is a cool video. Below is Cargospotter's description.
"I have filmed lots of crosswind landings within the past four years but this was the first time I was able to film an A380 crosswind Landing. All crosswind Landings are amazing but seeing an A380 fighting against the wind was something special. In addition to that the runway was very wet and the A380 touched down a little late.
Emirates started using the A380 on the Düsseldorf - Dubai service four months ago. It replaced the Boeing 777-300."

So a bully decides to fight a blind kid. Then another kid comes in and destroys the bully!
We don't know much about this video, other than it was put on Youtube today by someone called Matt, he claims he doesn't know the people in the video, nor did he film it, but it was sent to him.
In what must be the most ridiculous stand off in British history, here we have a story of two Mercedes drivers who end up in a one lane tunnel, and both refuse to give away.
This went on for 45 minutes!
Both of them should be ashamed of themselves! Firstly the woman for being so stubborn, and secondly the man because clearly he should not be on the road in the first place if he is incapable of reversing!

What an utter and complete douchebag!
The price of drugs is going up, and this interview with a pharmaceutical executive isn't making people feel better about it.
Basically the story is that he purchased the rights to Aids drug Daraprim, and then instantly raised the price by 5000%! From $13.50 to $750 per pill.
He has since faced major outrage and has agreed to reduced the price, but seriously what a douchebag!
Well you don't see this every day!
A small airplane landed on Red Hill Avenue, Irvine this evening and was picked up by a dashcam!
"...in came this storm that changed our film." Everest documentary co-director, David Breashears, discusses his real-life experiences and how they helped bring the feature film Everest to life.
Universal Pictures’ EVEREST may now be experienced by IMAX® 3D audiences one week earlier in the UK, when it releases exclusively in IMAX 3D and other select cinemas on Friday 11 September, 2015. The film will be released wide—including standard 2D and 3D—on Friday, 18 September, 2015.
Inspired by the incredible events surrounding an attempt to reach the summit of the world’s highest mountain, Everest documents the awe-inspiring journey of two different expeditions challenged beyond their limits by one of the fiercest snowstorms ever encountered by mankind. Their mettle tested by the harshest elements found on the planet, the climbers will face nearly impossible obstacles as a lifelong obsession becomes a breathtaking struggle for survival. The epic adventure stars Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Sam Worthington, Keira Knightley, Emily Watson and Jake Gyllenhaal.
Everest is directed by Baltasar Kormákur (2 Guns, Contraband) and produced by Working Title Films’ Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, Cross Creek Pictures’ Brian Oliver and Tyler Thompson, as well as Nicky Kentish Barnes and Kormákur.
Universal Pictures and Cross Creek Pictures’ presentation of Everest—in association with Walden Media—is adapted for the screen by William Nicholson (Gladiator) and Oscar® winner Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire).
The film was shot on location in Nepal on the foothills of Everest, the Italian Alps and at Cinecittà Studios in Rome and Pinewood Studios in the U.K.
The IMAX release of Everest will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of An IMAX 3D Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

Well our Prime Minister David Cameron is in the news right now for all the wrong reasons, the main one being it has been alleged that at Eton he put his genitalia into a dead pigs mouth!
Now true or false, it has inspired Cassetteboy to make this fun little remix.
Today I want to talk
About me and pork.
I get a kick out
of getting my dick out
So let no one doubt
It's going in a pig's mouth.
As I said,
I'm gonna get me some head
From a pig who's dead
This is big
I'm gonna stick my dick
In a pig.
Gettin' piggy with it.
The opening film from the 67th Annual Emmy Awards
"Andrew "Andy" Samberg (born August 18, 1978) is an American actor, comedian, singer, writer and producer. He is a member of the comedy group The Lonely Island and was a cast member on Saturday Night Live (2005–2012), where he and his fellow group members have been credited with popularizing the SNL Digital Shorts.
Samberg has starred in films, such as Hot Rod, I Love You, Man, That's My Boy, Celeste and Jesse Forever and Hotel Transylvania. He currently stars in the workplace sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine, for which he won a Golden Globe for best actor in a comedy series in 2014."
Tracy Morgan returns to the Emmys for the first time since his accident.
"On June 7, 2014, Morgan was a passenger in a Mercedes Sprinter bus involved in a six-vehicle crash in New Jersey. Just after 1:00 am EDT Saturday morning, the vehicle was travelling northbound on the New Jersey Turnpike near Cranbury, when it was struck from behind by a tractor-trailer operated by Walmart, causing a chain reaction crash. Morgan and three other comedians including Harris Stanton, along with Morgan's assistant and two limo company employees, had been returning from an engagement at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino in Dover, Delaware, as part of Morgan's "Turn it Funny" stand-up comedy tour. The crash killed Morgan's friend and collaborator, 62-year-old comedian James McNair.
Morgan was taken by helicopter to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, New Jersey, with a broken leg and femur, broken nose, and several broken ribs, and underwent surgery on his leg on June 8. In a 2015 interview with Today, Morgan stated that he had been in a coma for roughly two weeks. On June 20, 2014, Morgan was released from the hospital and was transferred to a rehabilitation facility to continue recovering from the injuries sustained during the crash. He was released from the rehab center on July 12, 2014."

This video has gone totally viral in the past week after it was originally posted on Facebook.
If this doesn't bring a tear to your eye then truly you have no soul!
Below the video is the description and story told by their grandchild.
My grandparents Laura and Howard have been married 73 years. In this video Howard is 92 and Laura is 93. Laura (Grandma) is at a hospice facility making peace with her final days. I was lucky enough to capture this precious, heart-melting moment between the two of them. Howard (Grandpa) is singing to her their love song, the song that comforted her when he went away to fight in World War II. At family gatherings, it was not uncommon for the two of them to sing this song together, each taking a verse and serenading the other. In fact, after fifty years of marriage, they renewed their vows and performed this song as a duet for the entire family at the reception. Sadly, Grandma is now too weak to sing, but that doesn't stop her from saying the words to him (see at 1:00). Howard then takes over for her and sings the rest of the song to her while stroking her face.
Moments before this video began, when Grandma heard that Grandpa was in the room, she asked if she could hold him. Grandpa cannot stand on his own, but he immediately pulled his wheelchair close to her bed ready to make it happen. My cousin, Serena, who is a physical therapist, helped him to his feet and held him up throughout the entire song.
You might notice above her bed there is a sign that says, “Patient Blind.” That is because she has macular degeneration, so she cannot see much of anything but shadows and light. That doesn’t stop her from looking deep into her love’s eyes. Grandpa, on the other hand, has lost most of his hearing, so you’ll notice us repeating things for him since Grandma is to weak to raise her voice.
The song used in the video is “You’ll Never Know” performed by Rosemary Clooney with Harry James. Our family prefers this version because everyone always said Grandma had a voice just like Rosemary Clooney.
After posting this video to Facebook, it began to go viral and all the outpouring of love lifted everyone's spirits... including Grandma's! They originally gave her just a week to live, but hospice eventually deemed her well enough to go back home to live out her remaining few days. As of this posting my beautiful Grandma Laura Virginia is still with us resting peacefully at home. Our family along with the wonderful people from hospice are taking care of her and making sure she remains as pain-free and comfortable as possible while she prepares for her nearing departure. We all thank you so much for the love and kind words.

Building a rope bridge with flying machines in the ETH Zurich Flying Machine Arena.
The video shows quadrocopters autonomously assembling a rope bridge. This is part of a body of research in aerial construction, a field that addresses the construction of structures with the aid of flying machines.
In this work, a rope bridge that can support the crossing of a person is built by quadrocopters, showing for the ﬁrst time that small ﬂying machines are capable of autonomously realizing load-bearing structures at full-scale and proceeding a step further towards real-world scenarios. Except for the required anchor points at both ends of the structure, the bridge consists exclusively of tensile elements and its connections and links are entirely realized by ﬂying machines. Spanning 7.4 m between two scaffolding structures, the bridge consists of nine rope segments for a total rope length of about 120 m and is composed of different elements, such as knots, links, and braids. The rope used for these experiments is made out of Dyneema, a material with a low weight-to-strength ratio and thus suitable for aerial construction. Of little weight (7 g per meter), a 4 mm diameter rope can sustain 1300 kg.
The vehicles are equipped with a motorized spool that allows them to control the tension acting on the rope during deployment. A plastic tube guides the rope to the release point located between two propellers. The external forces and torques exerted on the quadrocopter by the rope during deployment are estimated and taken into account to achieve compliant ﬂight behavior. The assembly of the bridge is performed by small custom quadrocopters and builds upon the Flying Machine Arena, a research and demonstration platform for aerial robotics. The arena is equipped with a motion capture system that provides vehicle position and attitude measurements. Algorithms are run on a computer and commands are then sent to the ﬂying machines via a customized wireless infrastructure.
In order to be able to design tensile structures that are buildable with flying robots, a series of computational tools have been developed, specifically addressing the characteristics of the building method. The design tools allow to simulate, sequence, and evaluate the structure before building.
The location of the scaffolding structure is manually measured before starting the construction. The primary and bracing structure can then be realized without human intervention. Before realizing the stabilizers, the locations of the narrow openings of the bridge are measured and input to the system, which adapts the trajectories accordingly.

5 Amazing Movie Endings
That You've Never Seen
Writing a movie is a tough task, and arguably the hardest part of that is coming up with a memorable ending to your story. When everything in the film has been leading up to this one final moment, you need to deliver the goods or it’s going to derail the project before it even hits theatres. Sometimes the script will go through a few revisions, leaving some tantalizing conclusions that never see the light of day. Here are Screen Rant’s 5 Amazing Movie Endings That You’ve Never Seen.

You know us, we like an emotional video, and this one has been doing the rounds today.
It shows an elderly man waiting for his wife at the airport with a bunch of flowers.
I don't know any more than that, but that guys and gals is true love! I hope I am as lucky as these two when I am their age!
Vertical Video Warning!
