    $34 for two 5m RGB strips and two remote controlled RGB bulbs? That's actually a really good deal. Aliexpress doesn't even beat that.

    I don't know if you live in the city but there are definitely sheep with ears like that. It's also running like a sheep (the way it's slightly sideways and kicking up its back legs). Probably it's a smallholding and the sheep a little more confident/tame.

    There are quite a few sheep farms near me, although it's always possible I've not come across that breed before. I also think I can see the pelt slipping off the back of the animal before it cuts back to the start, but I guess unless someone finds the source we'll never know for sure. There's also a frame near the start where the animal looks left, and skull shape should be discernable from that, but I've not framegrabbed it yet.

    You could rotate the point of view around the subject, as we learned in "Enemy of the State", and enhance the resolution - what they call it? To blow it up, or something.

    Not sure about Enemy of the State specifically, but in CSI and things like that they usually say (in bold and italics) "ENHANCE"

    The crazy thing is that with neural networks these "enhancements" are becoming reality.

    The real absurdism here is that it's yet another fake story for conservatives to pull up and say "look what the left is doing to America".

    Nobody likes tuna like this guy. Risked his life for that tuna, stabbing two sharks to ensure he kept it. Crazy stuff
