Gonna take a lot of whiskey to get me to sleep tonight after seeing that.

It's both beautiful and horrible, awe-inspiring and soul-crushing, like the moment between the hole ripping between the real and immaterium, and when the creatures from beyond start tearing into your flesh.

5 seconds in and I had enough of that guy. I can barely tolerate most YouTube channels anyway but this guy... well he's just insufferable.

Maybe after my coffee.

Someone at the MIT Media lab did something similar: a wall of furbies (just their faces showing) all interacting with each other in a feedback loop of chaos.

As a YouTube star, I figure there's a pretty good chance he'll say something racist soon enough and then that's the last we'll hear of him.

The furbies didn't look all sticky and crusty so I don't think so.

My daughter got a firby when she was around 5 or so. It doesn't have an off switch.

IT DOESNT HAVE A farkING OFF SWITCH.

Kill it. With fire.

Everything, even children, has an off switch. You just need to shake it hard enough.

In all seriousness, I've always had a soft spot for circuit bending: fun, useless skill that makes noises from things not meant to make those noises. Very Hannibal Lechter-esque. Did anyone ever get around to reverse engineering those things to find out if they really were an early Sinon experiment in data gathering?

Considering that Pwediepie (or however the fark it's spelled) is still the top YouTuber by subscriber numbers, it takes a lot more than racial epithets or being an unrepentant douche-rocket to hurt someone's YouTube career.

I think he thinks it's more clever than it is.  It's maybe a 4/10 on the amusement scale but it looks like it was around a 9/10 on the getting-it-all-up-and-working scale.

I've only ever seen one furby. We tried unsuccessfully to teach it to swear. Actually we couldn't get it to say much at all. That was a long time ago. Maybe the little bastards work better now.

Yeah, although the electronics work involved was impressive, I've no desire to follow his YouTube silliness.  I skipped through the video to avoid his yapping.

I was given one as a gag gift back in probably 1999... I was 18 so I didn't even pay it attention (of course) outside of the first few minutes trying to teach it to cuss or do something cool.  I don't really remember much about it... It was stuffed in my closet as I went off to college.

Sometime after I bought my own house.. probably about 2010 or later.... I was rummaging through that closet looking for something I needed/wanted for my new house.  That thing suddenly let out this big yawn and started talking to me... scared the CRAP out of me at first...

Kill it with fire indeed.  It may not have had an off switch, but I think it had a soul...

I love the idea. I don't hear as strong as a Furby presence as I expected. It was at the end when the guy twisted a pot where the Furby voice was highlighted in a manner I wanted to hear.

I can say what that the Furby Organ is pretty, pretty good. Never saw one before.

That made me laugh a lot. I can picture it so clearly. God damned closet monsters.

There is indeed nothing more unnerving than a Furby with a failing battery wailing out to the world in the midst of its death throes.

At least it's got an organ... Try turning it off with that.

What's that?

It only turns it on more?
