There’s a secret dog hidden in your YouTube video timeline

TwitterFacebook

YouTube hasn’t ever been one to skimp on the Easter eggs, but this is a new one for me.

It’s hidden away on the timeline that charts your progress through a video. If you highlight that timeline and hold left — either left on an attached game controller, or the left arrow key — in certain versions of YouTube (I’ll get to that in a minute), you can summon a dog.

It takes a bit, so be patient. If you’ve watched any of the video, it’ll rewind first. Then you want to keep holding left for another 10 or 15 seconds. Eventually, a little, brown dog, possibly a Corgi, will trot across your timeline, from left to right. Read more…

On Friday night, Ocasio-Cortez greeted the news of her plan’s popularity with a play on the deepest of deep cut memes.

Disney released a bunch of new character posters for Captain Marvel. One of them is a cat named Goose. Guess which one is the most popular.

Yes, obviously the cat. Goose belongs to Carol Danvers, the human alter-ego of Captain Marvel. Even before this poster surfaced, there was reason to believe that Goose wouldn’t turn out to be what he seemed. Now it’s pretty much confirmed.

In the comics, Danvers’ cat Chewie (who is also an orange tabby) is actually a Flerken. This race of alien beings resembles the house cats of Earth, except their mouths are filled with extendable tentacles. Further, the Flerken oral cavity is in fact a pocket dimension that can contain entire universes. Read more…
