    Because Australia, this is a video of two kangaroos duking it out in a suburban neighborhood. Presumably over a lady. They look so crazy it almost seems fake. I never realized how strong kangaroo's tails were and how much they use them to balance, especially when kicking the... / Continue →

    This is a questionable video of thrill-seeker/possible jackass Terry Tufferson illegally jumping off a cliff into Sydney Harbor when he encounters a great white. So what does he do? Involuntarily shit his bathing suit like a normal person? Maybe. But he also managed to esca... / Continue →

    This is the 4.4-billion year old zircon crystal found in Western Australia. Researchers believe it to be the oldest known piece of earth. How do you explain that, young earth creationists? "Radioactive dating doesn't work." Tell me about it, my last date had laser vision an... / Continue →

    This is David McCracken's 'Diminish and Ascend', a giant aluminum sculpture that looks like a stairway to heaven. It doesn't actually lead to the pearly gates though, it's just an optical illusion. It's really only 30-feet long and 15-feet high and is perched atop a hill at B... / Continue →

    Seen here looking absolutely nothing like the sex-craved maniac that he actually is (appearances can be deceiving), a yellow footed (and potentially bruised penis) antechinus prepares to sex himself to death. Not a bad way to go if you ask me. Of course if you asked my partne... / Continue →
