Friday Dopamine Dump

Tell Your Friends

Yes, I’ve blatantly stolen the title from www.thechive.com, probably my favorite website, but I think they’ll forgive me just this one time.

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that plays an integral part in the brain’s system of reward and pleasure.

It’s been the week from hell.  I wanted to end it with a reward, and maybe a smile.

Here are a round-up of Youtube videos that never fail to make me smile, or at least stare slack-jawed.  I hope you enjoy.

1. Bad NFL Lip Reading

What they’re really saying at those games.

2. KidSnippets, “Cooking Show”

Scenes imagined and vocally performed by children; acted out by grown men.

3. People Are Awesome

Because they really are.

4. Bohemian Rhapsody, by the Muppets

Does it get any cooler than Queen re-imagined with puppets?

5. Pep Talk from Kid President

I’d vote for this kid.  Seriously.

6. Rocky 2 Training Montage

I dare you to not get goosebumps.

Anyway, those are some of my favorites.  I imagine that most of you have seen most of them, but they never fail to make me happy.  I hope they do the same for you.

What are your favorite go-to videos on Youtube?  Did I list any of them here?
