Throw of the Dice by Snuppy

OKAY, maybe not so much “throw” of the dice, as scoop. And by “scoop”, we mean some guy playing with a bunch of dice for reasons that escape us. We believe this is called “Dice Stacking”, but for the life of us we can’t figure out why anyone would want to do it.

OUR fear is that Dice Stacking the result of one kegger too many and/or some bored kid looking to do something with his hands besides jerk off for the umpteenth time constructive. Or maybe this is what kids who don’t have fancy-schmancy video game systems do for fun these days. Whatever, we’re not convinced it’s fun, but we will admit it looks pretty neat. Just not neat enough for us to try it ourselves. Afterall, we do have lives, and as soon as we finish up with this post, we plan to get out and enjoy ours.

THIS kid’s folks must be so proud. We’re sure they don’t resent the way their son spends his time, and/or all that money they paid out for his college education, one bit — especially after they saw this video. No doubt there’s a big demand for speedy “dice stackers” somewhere, and who better to fill one of those jobs than a guy armed with a college degree?

wordpress seems to be acting up this morning… figures. this post was a bit of a toss up, anyway. sigh

hey… at least PIA can watch this video without too much frustration (i hope) since you don’t need to hear it in order to be mildly amused! xox

Well, I have to say that I’m pretty impressed and if I didn’t have a life to get to, I might be trying that dice trick right now. Also if I had a tenth of his coordination, but I digress.

I believe there is such a place for him – Atlantic City. Now I’m off to stack my own dice and hope they don’t fall over – have a good day Snarkeys!

by the way… don’t think i don’t know how lame this activity/video is, because i do! i really do! i think it cracked me up so much when i first saw it, because you just know some guy spent a shit load of time in order to do something that lame *that* fast. the concept of “complete waste of time” leaps to mind.

sadly, i fear this is the kind of thing that keeps kids in college and/or on their parents’ insurance plans much longer than necessary. but maybe that’s just me? xox

I have no life… just many Spanish messes… so this as perfecto for me today! FO SHO!

As silly as it is, I wish I could do that! It looks cool… goes to show you what a geek I really am!

As is, I am on the couch, with my laptop, a grumpy and ultra whiny little boy who keeps throwing damn papers on my friggin’ keyboard while one Arab channel shows Days of Our Lives and the other Legally Blonde… go figure…

I am racking my brain to see what silly and weird things I can do but alas, for now, other than rolling my tongue or flipping it to one side, moving my ears and nose, nothing comes to mind… *sigh*

Can you tell I am bored? I was supposed to go to the dentist today but I decided to ditch it… tomorrow is the day… blah!

Well, the boy is getting obnoxious so luckyfor y’all, I gotta go… Snuppy, funkified stuff FO SHO!

Lampy: hah! yeah… Atlantic City, Las Vegas, Reno, Carson City. lots of good choices! altho’ i can’t for the life of me recall seeing the guys who run the craps table do this. still, if this guy can’t get a job in a casino, i’m sure his stacking skills will come in handy bussing tables. 🙂 xox

D’OH!! CYM, you know, had i been thinking this morning (and i believe it’s been well established that i have *not*) i would have linked to your newest post and FABOO VIDEOS instead of this silliness. aieee!

i’ll make it up to you, i promise!!!!!! xoxoxoxox

Comment by One Hot Puppy

Wow…I’m impressed! If not Vegas or Atlantic City this guy could no doubt be a chef at Benihana’s.

Comment by BoBo

Well now you all know what I AM GOING TO BE TRYING TO DO THE REST OF THE DAY!!! I should know better than to watch video’s with my little 4 year old at my side. “Mommy you know how to do that don’t you?” “Nope Thea that is beyond my skill level.” “Well if you started practicing now maybe you can learn how before nap time?” “Maybe Thea, but I doubt it.” “Mommy I’ll go get the dice.” So as I finish typing this up my 4 year old is getting me some dice.

What? MizB has more video’s? I love the videos!!

Comment by cj

BoBo: why am i scared to show this to our kids? (tho’ it beats video games, right?) and Benihana’s is a brilliant thought! xox

CJ: what i forgot to mention is that there were several versions of this video on YouTube. i chose this one because the kid was the fastest/best. but i was almost shocked by how many others have tried to do the same thing — and are willing to share their efforts with the rest of the world. (with your little ones around, be sure to use large dice — no need to provide that cutie pie, Gracie, with something to stick in her mouth!) xox

Comment by snuppy

ooops! and yep. Miz B has an amazing new post up, complete with two, count ’em TWO great videos.

by the way, BOBO has a darn cute post up, too.

oh… as long as i’m pointing out new/fun posts (and, apparently i am) MY NBFF has a mighty sweet one up now, too! (everyone needs to stop over there and wish her little one a Happy Happy Birthday)

and let’s not forget to mention your OWN FINE POSTS, CJ! yep you guys have *all* been busy. hmmmm. maybe i should stop reading so much and start doin’ a little writing of my own? xoxo

Comment by snuppy

Freakin’ AWESOME!!! Great soundtrack, too! My favorite Johnny Cash and Dusty Springfield. That was great.

Comment by Walela

Walela: *this* is what amuses you? good to know. (okay, so maybe the kid’s music selection was tasty, but still…) xox

Comment by snuppy

Wow.

I so gots to get me a college graduate

Raawr

Comment by Little Blue Pill

When I see something like this, I have to wonder if “dice stacking” is what this kid was put on earth to do. I mean, he’s obviously got some kind of unnatural gift, but WHY?!?! God must be up in heaven thumbing through the list of talents he’s given out to people, muttering to Himself, “Did I…? I must have, but what was I thinking?!”

I haven’t done any shameless self-promotion for a few days, so you are all hereby invited to participate in the Lamest Contest Ever.

Comment by Diesel

Sorry, LAMEST CONTEST EVER.

Comment by Diesel

Darn! I can’t see it. I click on play and it runs for 1/2 a sec then it goes to the end where you can click “play again.”

Oh well… Deprived, I am…

Comment by Pavel

Diesel, Einstein said God does not play dice with the universe. Maybe He delegated.

Comment by Walela

Hey, I think those dice are magnetized…neat trick! Send him to Vegas. I bet those skills would also come
in handy as a croupier.
Good morning!

Comment by actonbell

Congratualtions ot that dude, taht is quite a waste of time! And if teh dice stacking wasnæt annoyign enough…the little shooting fingers at the end of each move, just killed me.
I guess it is all in the shake of ones wrist, isnæt it?!
