    This is a video from Africa of an ostrich chasing cyclists down the road at speeds nearing 30MPH. For reference, that is faster than I can bike unless I just biked off a cliff. Ostriches can run FAST. If you're ever being chased by an ostrich the best thing to do is stop and... / Continue →

    This is a video of a genet (not actually a cat, just CATLIKE) catching a ride on an endangered black rhino in Africa. The video also contains several still pictures of genets riding other rhinos and buffaloes. It serves as proof that genets, despite their seemingly small size... / Continue →

    This is a godawful quality video (after the jump) of an African Tigerfish (above) leaping out of the water to catch a bird mid-flight. Sucks to be that bird. Of course, it shouldn't have been flying so close to the surface in the first place. THAT'S WATER DUMMY, YOU DON'T BE... / Continue →

    This is Cercopithecus lomamiensis, a new species of monkey discovered in Africa (one of only two new species discovered in the past 26 years). It has a creepy, human-like face and a bright blue ass. Kind of like a Na'vi. There's a worthwhile shot of one's ass and balls after... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like a robot turd, an unknown metallic sphere crashed to the ground in a remote area of Namibia, stirring a 'The Gods Must Be Crazy' moment for the locals. Well, at least in my mind it did. When the ball came down it caused a crater 12 inches ... / Continue →

    South Africa's Legends Golf & Safari Resort has a very special hole 19 -- a par 3 with a teebox that sits 1,400 feet above the green. The 630-yard hole requires a helicopter to reach the tee and a ball takes nearly 30 seconds to drop to the green below (provided you don't whif... / Continue →

    In an attempt to take a bite out of malaria (suck it, McGruff!), scientists are developing a mosquito laser capable of protecting an entire village from the evil, biting bastards. Think bug-zapper times a thousand, to the power of PEW. The laser, which has been dubbed a "we... / Continue →

    The world's fastest zipline resides in Sun City, South Africa. They also claim it's the tallest and longest, but I think that's debatable. You ride the thing with a damn fin between your legs to keep you straight while reaching a top speed of 100 mph. Wow this thing is aweso... / Continue →

    A Nigerian physics undergraduate named Mubarak Muhammad Abdullahi has built a helicopter out of junk. The 24-year-old bankrolled the project with the money he earned fixing PCs and cell phones. The copter consists of car and motorcycle parts, along with some off a crashed 747... / Continue →

    One of my biggest problems with LAN parties is trying to focus on killing ogres while all the hot gaming chicks are trying to get up on me. Well, you wrap your unit in the new Computer Dust Cover Mod and you can kiss getting laid (ever) goodbye. Who needs computers with viewi... / Continue →
