    This is a three and a half minute, ultra slow motion video of a match igniting. In real time matches ignite much quicker. Maybe not as quick as The Flash masturbates, but what is? I've heard he's so fast his penis has actually caught fire before. See how I tied that into th... / Continue →

    This is 'War on Kinkade', a series of Thomas Kinkade paintings that have been upgraded with Star Wars themes by artist Jeff Bennett. I would proudly hang one of those over a fireplace. Mostly just because I want a fireplace. Hey Indy -- say your line. "Huh?" You know, it b... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy dropping a red-hot ball of nickel into a bowl of peanut butter. What happens? SPOILER: it looks like a flaming turd volcano. So the next time you ask your mom to make you a PB&J you might want to specify no red-hot balls of nickel. Also, to remove a... / Continue →

    This is Futurama's Bender made into a woodburning stove by metalworker Rob Halftroll, who had a troll father and never heard the end of it on the school playground. I know that feel. You just toss some logs in, douse them with alcohol (Bender insists), add a flame, and WHOOSH... / Continue →
