    This is a short video of scientist and Youtuber zBriGuy blowing up the rubber gloves of a laboratory glovebox and running by getting high-fives mid-fives like he just ran a marathon. You know, I ran a 5K marathon once when I was in 8th grade. They had tables and tables of fre... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber bra1Nphuk (I see what you did there) launching an overturned wheelbarrow almost fifty feet with the help of a Cobra 6 firecracker, which packs 48.5-grams of explosive powder (versus 2-3 grams for an M-80). The landing is most spectacular. If I were... / Continue →

    Lead Balloons are balloons printed with rude phrases to hurt a friend's feelings on their birthday. Or any day. They cost about a dollar apiece and come in "Bastard", "Another Year Closer To The Sweet Release Of Death" and "You Are A Waste Of Blood And Organs" varieties, with... / Continue →

    This is a video from very amateur madman TheBackyardScientist showing you how to make your own propane rifle. It's pretty simple. So simple you could easily do it in your garage after school with zero adult supervision. Not that I'm encouraging that, because I'm not. As muc... / Continue →

    This is a video from Slow Mo Lab of a firecracker exploding in the middle of a rubber band ball, filmed at 25,000 frames per second. For reference, that's 25,000 times faster than one frame per second, which is about how long the exposure took the last time I used a pinhole c... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy blasting one of those 5-pound gummi bears with a .22 rifle, then a 12-gauge shotgun slug, then he freezes the bear in liquid nitrogen and blasts it again with the shotgun. The results were very satisfying. Like a really good bite of dessert. But with... / Continue →

    A group of scientists are convinced that if we can dig deep enough into Mars, we'll locate signs of ancient life. And just how do we dig deep enough? By firing missiles! God, please -- PLEASE let me ride one. I want to wear a cowboy hat and be swinging a lasso. In 1976, th... / Continue →

    This is the 'Ark Nova', an inflatable and easily transportable concert hall that can fit 500 patrons and I'm trying really hard not to say looks like Grimace's @$$hole. Dammit, I kind of already did, didn't I? I suck at keeping secrets. It measures 98 feet by 118 feet and fe... / Continue →

    This is a video from Rated RR of beer kegs being exploded with detonating cord. I'm not gonna lie, it was a little hard to watch all that beer get wasted. Speaking of -- somebody should develop an app that connects people at the bar who can't finish their beer with people wh... / Continue →

    This is a shot of a highlighter right at its moment of explosion in a microwave. It kind of looks like cotton candy. Why would anybody put a highlighter in a microwave? Keep in mind this was a 4th of July weekend and not everyone can afford fireworks. "Sooo...." Yep -- you... / Continue →

    In agreement with last year's announcement by Human Rights Watch, an initiative created by the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots (an actual organization I didn't start myself) urges policy makers to ban the development and use of autonomous robots that can kill without human inter... / Continue →

    This is a video of The Slow Mo Guys (who are presumably learning disabled) exploding a Molotov cocktail against the brick wall of a house owned by one of their grandparents. And to any of you grandparents reading out there: there is a such thing as believing in your grandchild... / Continue →

    This is a video of a whole line of scientists dudes launching 55-gallon metal drums into the sky WITH SCIENCE. Pyro science (my favorite kind). If you mix calcium carbide and water, it produces acetylene. Acetylene is extremely flammable and can launch 55-gallon drums into ... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like the beginning of a very promising 4th of July BBQ, two older gentlemen create oxyhydrogen gas (a mixture of hydrogen and oxygen) bubbles and prepare to pop them with a blowtorch. Cooooool -- I wanna try! *blows bubble-gum bubble, melts face off* Per v... / Continue →

    Because humankind is notorious for its short-sightedness (moles too), we've shot so much shit into orbit that it's all starting to crash into each other and, soon, you won't even be able to shake a stick at heaven without hitting some broken-off piece of a satellite. Wonderful... / Continue →

    This is the remote-controlled Digger D-3 "flail tank". It's the latest and greatest (read: explosive-proof) of Digger mine-detonators, which have been around since WWII. Basically, it's steered around on the battlefield like a giant R/C car tank while it wails on the ground ... / Continue →

    Aleandre Farto (whose name is even a little explosive!) creates murals through the "precision detonation of plaster and brick". This is a music video featuring some of his work in progress. If you're a fan of watching explosions in slow motion, this is for you. If you're not... / Continue →

    I know it may look like a homemade Fruit by the Foot fort, but those are actually strings of firecrackers. 320,000 crackers to be precise. And this is a video of them being detonated as a memorial service to a deceased family member while neighbors drive by calling the police... / Continue →

    In other "you've got to be f***ing kidding me" news, this is a video of a guy getting a watermelon exploded off his head with a .50 caliber sniper rifle. Now if you're familiar with Freddie's other Youtube videos, you'll know almost all (read: all) of them involve special effe... / Continue →

    I bought a MacBook Air right when they came out but ended up breaking it over my knee after getting sick and tired of its weightlessness. My laptop needs some heft, dammit, I need to feel like I'm hauling some serious shit around (and not just 500GB of pr0n). The solution? A... / Continue →
