    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 →

    These are the Adventure Time themed BMO and Princess Bubblegum boots available from Dr Martens (previously: Jake and Finn versions). The BMO's cost $135, Princess Bubblegum $150, and I just added the BMO ones to my birthday list. Granted nobody will get them for me, but they'... / 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 →

    Note: Larger version HERE unless you're into squinting or don't give a shit about space, in which case we can't be friends. This is The Chart Of Cosmic Exploration, a poster detailing humanity's space exploration. You can buy a 39" x 27" poster of the chart for $38, or just l... / 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 →

    These are some of the upholstered faux taxidermy animal mounts created by artist Kelly Rene Jelinek of Etsy shop LittleStagStudio. Prices range from $800 - $3,500 depending on the animal chosen and materials used. I'm thinking I want a lion head made out of my current sofa. ... / Continue →

    This is the apartment bedroom that the Art Institute Of Chicago decorated to look just like Van Gogh's painting of his bedroom in Arles, France. It was made to celebrate the Institute displaying all three different paintings he created of the room in the same museum for the fi... / 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 →

    NOTE: One of the comics contains a Force Awakens spoiler in case you haven't seen the movie yet. You can see that one HERE. I was shocked. This is a small series of Calvin and Hobbes style Star Wars illustrations by artist Brian Kesinger. I remember reading Calvin and Hobbe... / Continue →

    This is a video of a cake that changes colors as it's viewed from different angles. It works by frosting the cake with a wavy pattern, then carefully airbrushing those little waves with two different colors from opposite sides. I know what kind of cake I want for my next birt... / Continue →

    This is a short video of Mitchie Brusco and Italo Penarrubia trading skateboards while midair over a massive jump. At first I thought not making it to the other side of the jump was certain death, but after I watched the video enough I realized there's a net below. That was p... / Continue →

    This is a short video of Singaporean student Jaye T showing off her hairstyle with an "oil slick" dye job hidden under a layer of normal hair. Pretty cool, right? I just learned the difference between an ombre and a balayage a couple weeks ago. Just kidding, I still have no ... / Continue →

    This is a video created using the illustrations of artist Scott Park, featuring all the vehicles from the original Star Wars trilogy in order from smallest to largest. He even included animal mounts. Would you ride a tauntaun? What about a bantha? I want to ride a Rancor. ... / Continue →

    These are Luma Dice, solid block aluminum dice with light-up LED number spots. The dice are powered by a replaceable battery, and have a motion sensor that activates the lights when you pick them up to roll them. They've been balanced to the best of the maker's ability, but a... / Continue →

    This is a beautiful video of Hyo Joo Ko performing a dance routine on top of a moving longboard. It really is beautiful to watch. So fluid. Me? I dance like a robot. Not like, the robot dance, but like, super rigid and then pieces start to break off. Keep going for the ... / Continue →
