    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 →

    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 →

    This is the $40 Nut Hammer. It's exactly what it sounds like unless you thought it was some sort of S&M sex toy, in which case my balls just snuck back inside me like Homer Simpson disappearing into that bush even thinking about it. Same goes for a nut tenderizer. You just p... / Continue →

    Because there are literally tons of people willing to trade hundreds of dollars in electronics for Youtube views, this is a video of a new iPhone 6 taking a liquid nitrogen bath, then being shattered with a sledgehammer. It didn't stand a chance. Of course, an iPhone that has... / Continue →

    These are tweets from Twitter user @radjc of her new iPad two hours apart. Can you tell the difference? Apparently the second pic was taken after she dropped the thing down the stairs. Jesus, what were the stairs made out of, hand grenades? Thanks to lilco, who agrees maybe... / Continue →

    That is not a lawn. This is Honda's Mean Mower, the new world record holder for fastest lawnmower, at 116.57MPH. For reference, that is entirely too fast to be cutting the grass. You would be through your backyard fence and in your neighbor's pool faster than you can say, "H... / Continue →

    This is a short video of Youtuber lilmul123 playing a game of Af-Tor at the 2014 Michigan Pinball Expo when the ball gets stuck bouncing perfectly back and forth between a bumper and kicker. He says it went on for several minutes before the bumper's solenoid eventually burnt o... / Continue →

    Because some people will actually follow advice found on 4chan (that's your bad), a number of users have ended up bricking their new X-Box Ones by following these fake instructions to make your console backwards compatible (because it's really that easy, Microsoft just doesn't ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a group of Siberian percussionists playing music on frozen ice sheets in Lake Baikal in -20°C (-4°F) temperatures. I didn't even know sound could travel attemperatures that cold. "You're an idiot." It's true, I'm not that smart. But I was smart enough to ... / Continue →
