What is the Watercooler?

It's a haven in the middle of a harsh, 9-to-5 world. A place where you can gather with your fellow human beings and bond over a paper cup full of cool refreshment.

All sorts of randomness is welcome here. Post pictures, videos, special Chat information, or just discuss news and current events.

Kids React to Harlem Shake

A few minutes, I wrote in my World about how I'm dumbfounded by this ridiculous fad that is known as the "Harlem Shake" (with additional emphasis on the quotation marks). And thankfully, this fad is starting to wind down.

Now, here are some kids reacting to this meme. I have to say that I enjoyed this video over the Harlem Kids meme. I especially liked the kid with the glasses. At least my faith in the future of humanity has been restored.

Is Doctor Who a Religion?

An interesting, humorous and somewhat thought-provoking video from PBS's Idea Channel that asks the question: is Doctor Who actually a religion?

Let's Sing-Along

With few hours left before the time is up, let's bomb the comments further to accomplish our comment slam challenge. And to do that, let's have a sing-along with one of the phenomenal songs of 2012. But since Gangnam Style is in Korean, let's have something in English. So here goes...


Otaku Pick-up Lines

In an effort to boost the comments in the site for the ongoing comment slam, let's have a little activity here in The Watercooler.

Try to think of a pick-up line between a boy and a girl that is related to anime, manga, gaming, or any other aspect of otaku culture. Here are some examples that I made:

Are you Pikachu? Because I choose you!

Are you a Super Saiyan? Because your level is OVER 9000!

Are you a plushie doll? I wanna hug you all day long.

Are you a Death Note? I want my name to be inscribed in you.

Are you Adam? Because you are the Bossman of my life. (Okay, that went a little too far. )

Now it's your turn to make your own pick-up lines. It doesn't matter if it's lame or corny. And don't copy from another person's work; you have to be original. After all, this is all intended for fun only.

Be sure to post your pick-up lines in the comments section. Have fun!
