A story with the headline “Humans have been controlling fire for at least 300,000 years” was posted today, which makes me wonder how many dozens or hundreds or possibly thousands of years that humans couldn’t control it and probably worshipped it out of fear. If that was the case, what was the turning point? Did someone just happen to smell wolf meat accidentally cooking in a random forest fire? I guess we’ll never know if the manipulation of fire by humans came out of a desire to grill meat, but that’s what I’m going with until the historical record proves me wrong. However, I do know with absolutely certainly (for me anyway) that below is The Most Intentionally Funny Video of The Day.
Today’s MIFV is the latest episode of Car Jumper by David Seger and Spencer Strauss at Dan Harmon and Rob Schrab’s independent short form series site Channel 101. If you enjoy meta-level take downs of police procedurals, this will be your brand new favorite thing.
Here’s the previous MIFV pick, in case you missed it.
