Former The A-Team star Mr. T once stunned a sick child's family by bringing him out of a coma - after doctors begged the actor for help.
The poorly kid fell unconscious in Detroit, Michigan in the mid-1980s - and the only physical movement he made was in response to hearing Mr. T's name.
And when the mohawked star was in town, he stopped by the hospital to visit the ill boy - with miraculous results.
He tells Empire magazine, "His family put toys around him and one of them was a Mr. T doll. And whenever my name came up, the boy moved his arm.
"Somebody told the doctors I was in town, so they called me down there. I closed the curtains and prayed. Then, as I was walking down the hall, the kid suddenly came out of the coma and hollered out.
"That was my supernatural moment."

There are so many amazing things to see in this classic documentary, and more awkward mustaches and man crushes on Rob Halford than you can count. Make sure you watch the end to check out clips from the filmmaker's other works "Monster Truck Parking Lot" and "Neil Diamond Parking Lot"..and some lost footage from the original movie, which features the most metal(?) person I've ever seen in my entire life..(peep the magic that is Zebraman at 26:35).

The lyrics don't make sense on their own, they're cut up from the 1992 release. The vocals are John Reid.
Original Lyrics -
"And those who suffer pain, will begin to live their Lives again.
And this world will be a place to learn, but its up to you, to pull us through."
Re-sampled Lyrics -
"Their Lives again / Their Li / to pull us through" (Main Loop Throughout Song)
"Place to learn / Their Liv / its up to you" (Secondary Loop)

Jesus, just look at him go! He's fucking awesome. He's like the Chinese kid from Goonies minus the gadgets. Because he doesn't need them. Why would anyone need a boxing glove on a spring when they possess the kind of floor moves that would make Satan cry blood? His moves reminds me of Jackie Chan's in Drunken Master 2. But he's clearly drunk on something else..that special kind of joy that only comes when a 7 year old gets his hands on his brother's rap mix and proceeds to get his motherfucking Crunk on. What a great way to start Friday off..I hope that when I'm doing these moves in the street tomorrow I don't get tasered.
(thanks Sleep ONE!)
1: I fucking love Christmas.
2: I'm a sucker for detail and realism.

My god, can he be more likable? He looks like Gallagher's Russian cousin Ivan who spends his summers as a guitar tech for The Scorpions.
Looking at this picture, I realized something. This is the only time in my life that a magician made me happy. Right on, Mr. H. Right fucking on.
King Kong was never a big hit in England. Why? Because they have a queen, baby. The idea of a king makes about as much sense to them as dignified reserve does to Tom Cruise. In order to correct this deficit, somebody had the bright idea of sex swapping King Kong for Queen Kong and the rest is history. We've come along way, lady apes.
I can't wait until Helen Mirren and Peter Jackson team up for "The Queen Kong." The Oscar is in the bag.

When I was younger, Benny Hill used to confuse the hell out of my still-developing pubescent brain. Am I supposed to laugh, or get a boner? Why is everyone moving so fast? This clip adds to that mix the added confusion of whether I should be offended at Benny Hill in blackface. Is Benny Hill foreign enough to get a pass, like the Japanese karaoke masters (he IS English)? You be the judge.

Brett: 'Sup guy.
Scott: How's it going, guy.
Michael: Can you believe old man Johnson and his bullshit attitude?
Brett: Um. Well..
Michael: Ok, you're my people, and i know you'll give it to me straight. How did I do?
Brett: The truth, Michael? It was...eh.
Michael: Aw, crap. I'm so fucking dead. I might as well return this beautiful suit so they can give it to someone who deserves it.
Scott: Hey relax, guy.
Michael: No, no, no, no, Scott! I will not relax. He really hated my piecharts. Even the orange ones. Christ, what kind of maniac doesn't like orange piecharts? I feel like i'm lost in Crazytown. Oh gosh, I need a drink.
Scott: Yeah, Bro. He really hates you.
Michael: Thanks, alot Scott.
Brett: Michael. Just stop it. This is 1981. Life moves fast. Stop whinging like a little girl. It's disgusting. And besides, you can't return the suit because we bought the set together. And I know I'm not ready to part with these threads, pimpin'.
Brett: I hear that, dawg.
Michael: Guys, I just feel lately like I'm some kind of suave urban Indiana jones in my own personal temple of doom.
Scott: Stop being so hard on yourself. You're more like that squawky Chinese kid to my Dr. Jones.
Brett: First of all, I'm Dr. Jones. Scott, you're built like a Chinese boy. And Michael, that leaves only one spot: The crying lady. Look. You sucked today. Big deal, brosef.
Scott: Plus you suck alot of the time, so I don't think Johnson will notice, Mike.
Brett: Shut it, Scott. Go huff some glue.
Scott: Spoken like a true non-glue sniffer. Stop trying to keep me down. This bird has to soar.
Michael: You know what? You guys are awful friends. I'm outta here. If you need me I'll be in the park eating big league chew. Peace out, losers.

Women not wearing skirts? What kind of crazy mixed up future awaits us? I'm also not sure how an electric belt will adapt the body to climactic changes. Maybe, it numbs the senses of the wearer with repeated shocks. Oh Swish! is the new Oh Snap!
