    Did you know there's a new Star Wars movie coming out? That was news to me. Of course I only get my news from the postman who makes the trek to my mountain cave twice a year (once if the bridge trolls are on strike), so I'm usually a little behind. This is a video of Blendte... / Continue →

    This is a video of a car grinder eating a bunch of vehicles, including a whole free candy van. Although I assume the cars had their engines and transmissions removed first (although these grinders are perfectly capable of eating those too). I liked how it has a special upside... / Continue →

    In news that shouldn't surprise anybody who knows bridges weren't meant to be made out of glass, the one that just opened in China has already started cracking (previously: Chicago's 103rd story glass skydeck cracking). Officials assured visitors that the cracks did not pose a... / Continue →

    Die, table for two! Rage Room in Toronto is a business where, for $20, you get to destroy five ceramic plates with a baseball bat. You can also add more plates, vases, picture frames, chairs, tables, etc. for additional costs. Alternatively, come over to my place and I'll le... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy trying to break a bottle of champagne. It does not break. It does rocket back straight into his crotch though. This has America's Funniest Home Videos $10,000 winner written all over it. Also, why is he trying to break a bottle of champagne in the f... / Continue →

    This is a video of a Hammel Red Giant Car Shredder eating a bunch of engine blocks (previously: a shredder eating a whole car before crunching on a bunch of engine blocks for dessert). Do you know how tough engine blocks are? You can't bend them with your hands, I can tell yo... / Continue →

    This is the Realistic Wall-Bursting Velociraptor And Claw Set made and sold by Etsy shop Imagemotor. The pieces are available as custom orders and cost around $250. It looks pretty realistic minus the torn up wall bits. Those look like pieces of styrofoam. The shop also sel... / Continue →

    This are fights-only (no interviews or other filler) edits of the first three episodes of the new BattleBots show on ABC. I had already forgotten the show was coming out, so it was nice to be able to see these. Plus they're only the good parts (fights), so you don't waste any... / Continue →

    This is a presumably fake video of some kid smacking his smartphone with a hammer to prove how strong the case is. The problem is the phone conveniently drifts out of frame when he picks up the hammer, which I assume is when its replaced with an already broken phone (the top ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a $9,500 Nao Evolution robot dropping and slipping on a Pop-Tart like some kind of stupid idiot. Not only does he drop what he's carrying, but he proceeds to walk right on top of it. For $9,500 I was definitely expecting better spacial awareness. What a du... / Continue →

    That last electric outlet -- it's been partying. This is a video of a man trying to prepare himself a cold breakfast (cold breakfast is a fancy way of saying bowl of cereal) with his pet velociraptor. Apparently raptors are just like cats. Which actually makes perfect sense ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a portly drunk man swatting a $1,350 DJI Phantom 3 quadrocopter out of the sky and breaking its 4K camera and three of its props. Apparently the man, who is a neighbor of the folks filming, told them if he flew it over his house he was going to be pissed off... / Continue →

    *Provided your favorite movies are The Wolf Of Wall Street, Inception, Jerry Maguire, Forrest Gump, Speed, Little Miss Sunshine, 50/50, some nature documentary, and Titanic. Otherwise they're just making movies you kind of like or don't like at all EVEN BETTER. This is a vide... / Continue →

    Rounding out the entirety of our Apple Watch coverage (which consists of the previous post and this one), here's a video of an Apple Watch being submerged in liquid nitrogen, then getting smacked with a sledgehammer. So if you ever wondered if a super cold Apple Watch can surv... / Continue →

    These are a bunch of broken bone x-rays that have been repurposed as a lampshade. Presumably by a mad scientist or an evil doctor. Are those even human body parts? That one on the right looks like an animal paw. What kind of experiments was this mad scientist performing? A... / Continue →

    This is a video of piñata mishaps (mostly people hitting bystanders) with Street Fighter II graphics and sound effects added. It brought me great joy. And I'm allowed to say that because my longtime friend Tyson gave me a black eye swinging a curtain rod at the piñata at his ... / Continue →

    Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, best known for playing Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane in HBO's Game of Thrones adaptation, just broke a 1,000-year old Viking strength record by carrying a 640 kg (~1410 pound) log across his back for five steps. According to Viking legend, the previou... / Continue →

    This is a video of somebody's favorite uncle alternating between having no clue how to play the guitar and chopping stacks of flaming boards. He even breaks one with his head for the finale, making it the most exciting afternoon this neighborhood has ever seen minus the famous... / Continue →

    This is an almost-hard-to-believe-somebody-is-really-that-stupid video of some idiot who thinks the right way to use tow straps to pull a stuck vehicle is to make sure there's a lot of slack ("I've got 30-feet of strap"), then slam the truck in reverse as fast as you can. Obvi... / Continue →

    This is a video from science lover VSauce dissecting whether or not the Kool-Aid man could really crash through a brick wall without breaking himself. SPOILER: Yes he could. Although apparently he would die because in this model, VSauce imagines the liquid inside him as his b... / Continue →
