    This is 'Gothenburg Shuffle', a short video of playing card hand tricks performed by Noel Heath. Noel owns way less hats and crazy faces than this playing card trick guy. His tricks are equally impressive though. Dare I say, perhaps even MORE impressive. Of course impressiv... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a whoosh bottle. I think there's alcohol inside. I used to do this with lighter fluid and a 2-liter plastic Coke bottle but that was not nearly as cool. The sound this thing makes is incredible. Apparently it's dangerous though and the bottle can ex... / Continue →

    Because some things never go out of fashion, these are some shots of Mark Hamill wearing the same sweater thirty years apart. Now that is a quality sweater. I wonder if it's as warm as the inside of a tauntaun. You know I actually still wear some of the same boxers I've had ... / Continue →

    This is a video of playing card manipulating master Zach Mueller showing off some of his amazing card-moving tricks and optical illusions (previously). Judging from the video, I'm guessing Zach loves hats and making serious faces almost as much as he loves playing with cards. ... / Continue →

    This is a super short video of skateboarder and new mother Maria Oberloher performing a kickflip while pushing her child in a stroller. Some people will probably complain about it. Probably that she's already wearing a wrist brace and it's dangerous and what happens if she do... / Continue →

    This is some ultra extremely rare and fascinating footage of a Japanese pygmy squid squirting ink to hide itself from prey before moving in for the kill. Usually squids use ink as a defensive tactic, but now scientists have learned they're using it for offense as well. Playin... / Continue →

    This is a video Night Verses' drummer Aric Improta backflipping between two drum sets mid-solo. That is impressive. So impressive I tried to do it at my last concert and became the first person to be rushed to the emergency room with a cymbal stand in their rectum. Or at lea... / Continue →

    These are the pixelated lips of Canadian makeup artist Andrea Reed of Grey Girl Beauty. Pretty cool, right? What do you think? "I think I am in love." Haha -- the Microsoft Windows 95 logo, ladies and gentlemen! Keep going for a closeup.... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Dragon Ball Z animation created by Japanese artist Shinrashinge using three stacked coffee cups. He did a good job, and I particularly appreciated how he used the bottom and insides of the cups. I never get anything cool drawn on my coffee cups but my n... / Continue →

    This is the Star Wars birthday cake (Happy Birthday Alexander!) with illuminated lightsabers made by Flickr user Lorenzo Wood. It uses two Neopixels LED strips to make the lightsabers glow. They are not edible. I'm kidding, everything is edible. Those lightsabers will burn ... / Continue →
