    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 →

    This is a video of a jawbreaker getting torn up in a blender filmed in super slow motion. You remember the giant 4-inch jawbreaker you convinced your parents to let you get one summer when you were growing up? The one that came in a little plastic case you could wear around y... / Continue →

    Two Street Fighter related posts in a row, what a Monday! What a horrible, horrible Monday (per usual). This is a commercial created for Turkish insurance company Anadolu Sigorta about a guy who doesn't think he needs auto insurance until Ryu comes and f***s his car up bonus ... / Continue →

    27-year old Robert McKevitt was recently fired from his job at a warehouse in Iowa for using a 4-ton forklift to shake and drop a vending machine after the Twix bar he paid for failed to drop. Me? I'm more of a running jumpkicker. "That machine was trouble," Mr McKevitt to... / 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 →

    Break Club is a club in Buenos Aires, Argentina where members (predominately women) go to break shit with a stick, shatter bottles against the wall, kick stuff, and all around have the best fifteen minutes of their day. It's like a one-sided Fight Club. You know what I do to ... / Continue →

    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 →

    'Send Me To Heaven' is a real Android app (Apple denied it) that measures how high you throw your phone in the air. It's like a game. A game where the equipment costs $400 and breaks every time you don't win. Basically, the best kind of game. S.M.T.H. (Send Me To Heaven) is... / Continue →

    Seen here reaching for an invisible titty, a guy plays the homemade virtual reality version of Paperboy he developed ('PaperDude VR') for use with an Oculus Rift headset and Kinect motion controller. It looks like fun. Fun to the point where I would actually use the game to e... / Continue →

    These are the conceptual 3-D printed 'Cortex' casts envisioned by designer Jake Evill (not to be confused with the Jake EVIL, who wants to see us all dead). They're awesome because if you break your arm a frienemy can't draw a penis on your cast. I've had to be casted up thre... / Continue →

    A group of kids in Australia knocked over this 100,000-piece LEGO Erickson Air-Crane built by Ryan McNaught. The $25,000 copter was on display at the Cairns Central Shopping Centre when the little jerks pushed it off its display table. Thankfully, authorities have already ide... / Continue →

    I'm flying, Jack! This is an ad for GoPro featuring some guy riding a snowmobile off the edge of a cliff, sitting on it for awhile while airborne, then ditching it to crash below while he parachutes off to safety. I found it a pretty controversial ad because like, GoPro kille... / Continue →

    This is a video of Redditor Aussie50 tossing some piece of heavy machinery into a front-load washer and watching it shake itself to pieces on the spin cycle. It will never top the anthropomorphic dryer eating a brick video, although this one is pretty action-packed. It's a sh... / Continue →

    As proof that Apple products, are, in fact, deadly weapons, this is the iPad that got stuck in a Georgia woman's car bumper. The woman says she noticed an object coming at her while driving but didn't think anything of it (not a good driver quality btw) until she got home and ... / Continue →

    This is the $80 ROULETTE Wheel IQ Cube. It's like a Rubik's cube, but way more complicated because it has a wheel on each side. Wheels makes things harder. Except driving, they actually make driving easier. You ever had a steering wheel break off in your hands while you're ... / Continue →

    I've used tons of terrible screencaps on Geekologie, and this one is certainly no exception. I had the choice of either using one of the CD just spinning, or after the explosion, and I chose neither of those and went with a really blurry one from during the ACTUAL explosion. ... / Continue →

    These are allegedly some pictures from Redditor NoMoreGFs4Me (aka ForearmOfSteel) of what he came home to after breaking up with his girlfriend. Well, he SAYS breaking up with, but I don't know, it looks like he might have cheated. Hit the jump for a closeup of a hammered dis... / Continue →

    Because it's Friday, and this is the internet, here's a video of MMA fighter Anthony Pettis roundhouse kicking some raw eggs in slow motion. You tell those eggs, Anthony! "Tell them what?" That the chicken came first, silly! Hit the jump for the video AND IMAGINE THOSE ARE... / Continue →
