It’s been a trying year so far for our favorite in-house doctor – Dr. Jeff Wilson, PhD, of course. Besides his UX work for the team here at Applian, and the thousands upon thousands of videos and web clips he’s been through, Dr. Jeff has also been spending more time at home with his parents. Not really, but here, in preparation for some 4th of July family time, are a few things he’s learned about surviving a move back in with the parental units. Have some more salad.

Dr. Wilson’s Possibly humorous Distraction – Vol 11
Our superstar UX lead here at Applian, Dr. Jeffrey Wilson, PhD, spends a lot of time analyzing debug logs from customers. He likes to give customers a quick 2 minute video to test record so that he can keep the logs small. So he frequently searches out these short video clips which end up playing a vital role in the data logging procedure. Needless to say, he sees quite a few videos (and other types of media).
This month, Dr. Wilson actually received this video from a recent customer. He thought it was good enough to share. Below a fictitious (or is it?) account of college soccer as it gets down to the ever-dramatic penalty shots. So good it makes our face hurt. Enjoy!
Dr. Wilson’s Possibly humorous Distraction – Vol 10
In the immortal words of Jon Bon Jovi, “Shot through the heart, and cupid is to blame”, or something like that, right? It is that time of year again when the holiday cards and candy bags turn various shades of light red. So sit back, unwrap a few (red foil covered) Hershey’s Kisses ™, and watch an innocent Valentines Day prank in this month’s PhD post.
Dr. Wilson’s Possibly humorous Distraction – Vol 9
We love Lego just as much as we love technology, which is why this hilarious video is this months’ PhD Video! Eddie Izzard, the British rambling funnyman takes on technology as his jokes and ideas are mirrored with Lego pantomimes. Get some laughs today, and check out the video below.
On the topic of Lego, your Applian Doctor himself, Jeff Wilson, had his nudge with fame as his Flickr photoset got published on io9. In his words, “I don’t know about the “subversive” bit, other than I was trying to show that the much maligned Lego Friends series for girls can be a lot of fun if you think outside of the Heartlake City boundaries”.
Lego’s ‘Friends’ dolls are a popular, if problematic, piece of gendered merchandising – but in the hands of creative Lego fans they can become something much cooler. We’ve had Lego Superfriends, and now thanks to Flickr User Jeffrey Wilson we’ve got the Lego Girls donning Mech suits.
Pretty cool, huh? See more here.
Dr. Wilson’s Possibly humorous Distraction- Vol 7
Dr. Wilson back here. Well, I wasn’t actually gone. Deb REALLY wanted to do a post on balloons, so while I was out training, she snuck in that last entry. “Training?” you ask. Last Sunday I competed in my second 1/2 Ironman distance triathlon – Steelhead 70.3. Translated, I swam 1.2 miles in Lake Michigan, bicycled 56 miles, and then ran a half marathon (13.1 miles). If you think that is crazy, Shellie has done a few full Ironman races. I might be that crazy in 2015. Between work and family, we manage to squeeze in a lot of miles of training.
This week’s video is a bit of a classic, turning around the patterned: “Sh*t” + athletic activity + “say”.

Dr. Wilson’s Possibly humorous Distraction- Vol 6
Debbie here. Dr. Wilson is taking a little break from distractions this week. So, I’m happy to step in and post one of my favorite finds. As a hot air balloon owner, crew-chief and pilot-in-training, I watch a lot of ballooning related videos. But, I’ve never seen anything like this before. Riding IN a hot air balloon is an incredible experience. Now imagine riding ON TOP of a hot air balloon. Yes…you read that right. Check this out:
Dr. Wilson’s Possibly humorous Distraction – Vol. 5
Weird Al Yankovic is the king of parody. His newly released, grammatically correct version of “Blurred Lines” called “Word Crimes” has racked up over 2 million YouTube views since yesterday! If your…I mean you’re a grammar snob, you’ll be sharing this video everywhere. It’s just
two t0 too perfect.
Dr. Wilson’s Possibly humorous Distraction – Vol. 4
Ants. They create an intricate underground world for themselves. I’m sure you’ve always wondered what happens when you pour molten aluminum into a fire ant colony. Wonder no more. Here’s this week’s distraction:
