• Giant Garage Scorpion

    71,703 views 7 years ago
    While cleaning out a corner of my garage I came across this large scorpion and so, naturally, I grabbed my camera and captured it on video! This is the largest scorpion I've ever encountered on my property. While out hiking in the desert I've come across a couple slightly larger specimens, but this one was in my garage! A neighbor says she found one in a drawer containing clothing a couple years ago. That would not be a pleasant surprise! Even worse would be having one crawl on you while you're sleeping at night! Obviously being stung would be worse yet! Neat creatures, but not nice to have around.

    FUN FACT: Scorpions glow brightly under UV light (black light).

      I decided to experiment with autotune on this song. Between the shaky video and the weird vocals this video probably won't do very well, but I figured I'd throw it out there anyways. I actually had...

      Some will recognize the song being parodied here! Some might even be offended that I defiled a song that many seem to almost hold sacred. Too bad, so sad, but all in good fun! Viewers may also reco...
