    This is a shot of Redditor Caligineus's friend's cast. She broke her arm, then made the most of it by painting the cast to look like one of Iron Man's gauntlets. Impressive, but I would have gone the extra mile and broken both arms so I could rock two of them. Then, I don't ... / Continue →

    This is a video of an industrial robot arm that's been programmed to scratch records. He...isn't very good. Plus he doesn't even realize there isn't another record playing until 1:40 so it's literally JUST scratching until then and made me want to blow my own brains out. And... / Continue →
