    This is a video of a bunch of friends taking turns using an Oculus Rift virtual reality headset to experience the moments before being decapitated by a guillotine. It looks like fun. And it would have been even more fun if somebody would have smacked them in the back of the n... / Continue →

    I'm flying, Jack! This is an ad for GoPro featuring some guy riding a snowmobile off the edge of a cliff, sitting on it for awhile while airborne, then ditching it to crash below while he parachutes off to safety. I found it a pretty controversial ad because like, GoPro kille... / Continue →

    Because it's the Friday before a holiday weekend and I've already started drinking (technically last night) this is a shot of some dude dressed up as all the Avengers at once. Can you name the corresponding costume pieces to each Avenger? In case you're a dirty cheater, they ... / Continue →

    This is an anti-crack public service ad from Brazil that slowly gets eaten by mealworms to let people know that if you do crack, insects will come and eat your f***ing face off. Just like they taught us in D.A.R.E. The posters were actually made of thin sheets of dough instea... / Continue →

    Dare you to take your own leg off. These are Butcher Briefs, a pair of men's boxer briefs that look like a butcher's chart. *shivers* The last thing I'd want is anybody trying to take cuts 17 and 18 while I'm wearing them. Granted even a slice of 17 could feed a medium size... / Continue →

    You know what perfectly melds comfort and functionality? Not 3-D printed shoes with an integrated iPhone holster, but too bad, that's what we're getting anyways. Plus your phone will get really dirty, and who doesn't love a dirty phone? I want to hold all that sidewalk dirt ... / Continue →

    Remember DeviantARTist justjake54's twist-tie Ninja Turtles? Well now he's made a bunch of other characters. What will this guy think of next? Fingers crossed for anything but twist-tie pornography. "I'd watch it." No -- we'd watch it together. We're a team, remember? "W... / Continue →

    These are the wooden floor tiles cut by Spanish flooring company Arbore. They were inspired by MC Escher's famous 'Reptiles' drawing, even if the company refuses to admit it. They did admit it though, so we're cool. No need to make signs and go stand out front of their offic... / Continue →

    This is the 5,335,200-piece LEGO X-wing fighter, a full-scale version of the 560-piece set the company actually sells. It's not pure LEGO though, it has a steel armature inside so the whole nose doesn't fall off when some tourist turns around and farts at the thing. Facts and... / Continue →

    This is a shot by Vincent James Cracchiolo of a little girl cosplaying as Stan Lee and sitting on the real Stan Lee's lap at the recent Motor City Comic-Con. No word if Stan was insulted by the girl's lack of teeth but I'm assuming not because Stan seems like a pretty nice guy... / Continue →

    This is the Alien facehugger made entirely out of LEGO by DeviantARTist AL13N163NA, which then decided to hug dude's face and put an alien baby in him. You know how chestbursters are called chestbursters because they always hatch out of a person's chest? Well that's not entir... / Continue →

    Note: This shot really don't do the piece justice. Click HERE to see it even bigger. This is the 'Gears of War' scene Redditor Xioo had he and his wife and dogs drawn into to celebrate their first anniversary. Should those dogs have guns on their backs? Probably. And for t... / Continue →

    This is a series of beautifully designed video game posters by artist and illustrator Marinko Milosevski. He did a whole series of Zelda and Metal Gear ones, plus a couple BONUS ones for Metroid, Super Metroid, ICO and Shadow of the Colossus. They're all available as limited... / Continue →

    This is a video of 4-year old future heartbreaker Mia Grace showing off her Marvel superhero trivia in a game of 'The Car Trivia of Superheroes With Daddy And Mia...On The Way To The Store'. She does really well. Way better than her mom does at not holding a camera in vertica... / Continue →

    This is the Aperture Science Portal themed fixie for sale on Craigslist in San Jose, CA. And by Portal themed I mean it's black with an Aperture Science sticker and orange and blue rims. Plus BONUS My Little Pony stickers! Those are probably worth the $300 themselves. I'm s... / Continue →

    This is a computer graphics clash between the forces of Star Wars and Star Trek in and above San Francisco. Who wins? I'm not saying, that would be a spoiler. I'm joking, the video's called 'Death Star Destroys Enterprise'. It's a special extended re-release of this crappie... / Continue →

    This is the Pentagram Bikini sold by Etsy shop MASSBlack for $55. Thankfully, that price includes a top and bottom, so the '666' you shaved into your bush can remain you and the devil's little secret. Hit the jump for another shot where she kind of looks like Kim Kardashian i... / Continue →

    This is a gallery of tiny 'nanoflowers' grown on the surface of pennies and glass by engineers at Harvard University. They're not actually flowers though, they just look like them. In reality they're microscopic bits of carefully grown crystals. "Like meth." Exactly like me... / Continue →

    This is a small gallery of 3-D foam art created by Osaka barista Kazuki Yamamoto. He's clearly got some foam skills. I'm not even sure what I'd say if a barista called my name and then handed me a drink that looks like this. Probably something like, "Awesome, but I ordered m... / Continue →

    This is a video of glassblower and skateboarder Robert G. Burch riding his skateboard through a puddle of molten glass. Why? Presumably to combine his two passions in life. Like me when I'm laying down AND playing video games. Hit the jump for the video.... / Continue →

    This is a short video of French bicyclist François Gissy setting a new world record by hitting 263km/h (~163mph) on a hydrogen peroxide powered rocket bike. That seems dangerous. I've probably hit 25mph on my bike before and I felt like my face was going to melt off. Then I ... / Continue →

    Because everybody ran out to see the new movie this weekend, here's a video of Harp Twins Camille and Kennerly performing a Star Trek: The Next Generation theme duet ON AN ALIEN PLANET. Jk, I think they're in Utah. Smart decision both wearing yellow command uniforms though, i... / Continue →

    This is the giant basement arcade built by Redditor mertzlufft and his father. Mertzlufft sounds kind of braggy about it to which sucks because the last thing you want to hear from a person you're already jealous of is bragging. Have fun while it lasts, mertzlufft, but my dad... / Continue →

    This is a shot of a tree that got all its bark zapped off in a lightning storm. Now it's just standing there all butt-ass naked. Will it survive? A quick Google search for "can a tree survive without bark?" proved inconclusive, and that's as far as my investigative reporting... / Continue →

    NOTE: I didn't post the pics after the jump because I don't want anybody falling in love too quickly but you can see the uncensored shot of the pic above HERE, frontal shot with g-string HERE and 3/4 rear view with tattered cat tree HERE. Remember Avatar tattoo guy? How could... / Continue →

    This is the giant pizza slice beanbag chair for sale from Lazy Oaf (who also brought us those pizza slice BFF necklaces and is clearly a company run by Ninja Turtles). It's a £70 (~$105) beanbag chair printed with a slice of pepperoni pizza. And no, the girl doesn't come with... / Continue →

    This is the Zelda themed Game Boy birthday cake made for *squinting* dammit, ENHANCE PHOTO! Shoot, I still can't read it. Frodzi Wippies? Whatever, the name of who is was made for isn't the point. The point is what the hell is going on with that dude's face on the right? I... / Continue →

    You know what's cooler than being cool? Being cool in a $26 long sleeve Power Ranger t-shirt from 80'sTees. Just look at Peter Ponytail here. He's wearing thumb and index finger rings on opposite hands. And rings, as I'm sure none of you were aware, are a symbol of fertility... / Continue →

    This is a fairly poor quality video of a 3-kilometer bridge in China being demolished with explosives in 20-seconds. Impressive, but I could have done it in half that. Just don't ask me how. "How?" I SAID DON'T ASK. "No but seriously." I blew Zeus. Hit the jump for the v... / Continue →

    This is a DVD with a special heat-activated label on top that changes from black to a photo of a pizza and smells like a pizza when heated up in your DVD player. When heated up in a toaster oven? It smells even better. In partnership with 10 local video rental stores, Domino'... / Continue →

    These are the Batman and Superman scented colognes developed by Marmol & Son and available at Hot Topic for twenty coconuts. Hot Topic is a cool store. Plus it's right next to the Auntie Anne pretzel place at my local mall so I always roll in there WITH A PIPING HOT PRETZEL D... / Continue →

    This is a small series (there's three) of Adventure Time characters imagined in real life by digital sculptor Thomas Lishman. They're all pretty scary. So the next time you're thinking about how great it would be to live in cartoonland, think again. You just can't see the de... / Continue →

    This is the video shown to participants in a study conducted by the University of Duisburg-Essen to determine if humans feel empathy towards tortured robots. Basically it's some guy hanging and beating a Pleo robotic dinosaur for a minute straight. The test is obviously flawe... / Continue →
  • May 20, 2013
    This is a video of a couple zombies impressively parkouring around a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Obviously, if real zombies turn out to be this nimble, everyone's getting their brains eaten. Except me. I'm throwing myself into a volcano like that little troll at the end of L... / Continue →

    This is an exact replica of the Iron Throne made from fun noodles. For a second I thought dude was sitting in the actual Iron Throne, but it's not, it's just a very convincing replica. Also, do you think dude stuffed his shorts or his package is actually that big? Because th... / Continue →

    This is Redditor chrismusaf's friend's Bat-symbol mustache. It's not the first Bat-symbol mustache we've seen, but it IS the cleanest cut. Clearly this Batman wannabe knows his way around a razor. Around his apartment in the dark? Not so much (his toes look like little bloo... / Continue →

    This is the LEGO Swiss Army Knife built by LEGO CUUSO user Robiwan. That's a pretty clever design. Still, you should never, under any circumstances, bring a plastic knife to a ninja sword fight. I know you might fancy yourself some kind of MacGyver that doesn't need anything... / Continue →
  • May 20, 2013
    This is a short video of a potentially fired high school chemistry teacher performing the classic 'What happens if you light a fireball right in front of an emergency water sprinkler' experiment. The experiment goes amazingly well, and I'm sure all the students took something ... / Continue →

    This is the Darth Vader beer fridge and vodka pump built by artist Tom Sachs. With his cape drawn he just looks like Darth Vader, but with his cape pulled back he looks like a ton of Budweiser cans and some vodka. I'm not 100% sure what kind of pump system Tom hooked up to th... / Continue →
