    250 pizza chefs working in shifts of 100 recently cooked the world's longest pizza in Naples, Italy. The pizza measures 6,082 feet, or 1.15 miles long. For reference, that is 1.15 miles minus 14 inches longer than any pizza I have ever baked, so they blew my record out of the... / Continue →

    This is a video of guitarist Rob Scallon (previously: his one-string electric garden shovel) performing a riff from every Metallica song, in chronological album order, in four minutes. That was impressive. You think he has the whole thing memorized or you think he has a cheat... / Continue →

    This is a video of Darbian setting the new Super Mario Bros. speedrun record, finishing the game in just 4:57.260 and beating the previous record by only 433 milliseconds. Will somebody make it faster? I dunno, it seems like there is very little room for improvement here. Wi... / Continue →

    This is a video of freerunner, gymnast and stuntman Damien Walters backflipping over a speeding Formula E race car (Formula E cars are all electric). It also shows all the prep that went into the stunt. It's weird to think that even with all that prep that this video was stil... / Continue →

    Seen here losing his mind, Alejandro "AJ" Fragoso sets the Guinness World Record for binge-watching television with a staggering 94 hours straight. That can't be good for you. One time I watched TV for 16 hours straight and was convinced I got eye cancer and leaky bowels. Fr... / Continue →

    Suckers, get it? It's double cool in this case because octopuses have suckers on their tentacles. Obviously, he took his suckers with him though. I don't know, I'm not that smart and none of my former teachers will admit that they taught me. Inky the octopus escaped the Nat... / Continue →

    This is a short video of SpaceX successfully landing the first stage of one of its Falcon 9 rockets on a droneship floating in the Atlantic Ocean. It's so spectacular it doesn't even look real. The idea is that landing and refurbishing the boosters will cut down on costs sign... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber きらめきでどーだい beating Super Mario Bros in 14:46 while blindfolded (previously: another guy doing Super Mario World). Personally, I like to see what I'm doing. Plus I don't want the game makers to think I don't appreciate their graphics. I only like pl... / Continue →

    This is a video of Jaguar setting the Guinness World Record for the largest 360-degree loop driven in a car. Apparently they performed the feat last year to celebrate the company's 80th birthday. To celebrate my 80th birthday? Go face-down in a cake, then poop my pants and s... / Continue →

    Astronaut Scott Kelly just returned to earth after spending 340 days aboard the International Space Station, and, among the things he brought back with him, are an extra 2-inches in height. Lucky! I wish I was a little bit taller. "I wish I was a baller." I wish I had a gir... / Continue →

    This is a video of two very close friends dressing as one much larger person in order to sneak into the movies for the cost of a single ticket. It works too. Presumably because the ticket-taker doesn't get paid enough to give a shit that the giant man who just passed is actua... / Continue →
