    This is a commercial for the Science channel's 'Through the Wormhole' featuring Morgan Freeman (who also hosts the show) talking on helium. Don't even act like you haven't waiting your whole life to hear what this sounds like. Now I can die happy. Hopefully in my sleep, but ... / Continue →

    This is a mesmerizing 15-minute video of an artist manipulating sand on a spinning surface to hypnotize your brain and make you do things you normally wouldn't. In my case, it was eat a healthy lunch. I'm kidding, I had half a box of Girl Scout Cookies and the Snickers bar I ... / Continue →

    I'd be chirping too if that were me. UPDATE: Apparently faked in some capacity. *shrug* People are such jerks. So apparently if you slow down the sound of crickets chirping to the point where a cricket's lifespan matches that of a human's (no idea how slow that is), it becom... / Continue →

    Note: It's an optical illusion, not an animated GIF. You can't print animated gifs on paper. This is a video of a cat spazzing out on the optical illusion seen above. So now we know -- yes, cats CAN see optical illusions. And laser beams. Unfortunately mine can't seem to s... / Continue →

    Look at this girl. She looks crazy, right? Like, why the hell are you turning the water on, you're going to soak you're going to soak your pants and it's obviously cold out. The thing is, she's not turning the water on, she's opening the secret rear entrance to the house. W... / Continue →

    Using a manned submersible, a group of scientists recently captured footage of a nearly 60-foot long giant squid in its natural habitat for the first time. The video is going to be shown on the Discovery channel January 27th and I'm already predicting it will be the most watch... / Continue →

    This is a 30-meter (~98-foot) blue whale kite constructed by Peterlynn Kites. I guess it's kind of a balloon kite though because it's inflated. Want your own? Well you're in luck, because they sell them for $6,000. Or you can get a 16-meter version for $3,800. Or an 8-mete... / Continue →

    Because how useful is is a map that doesn't include some explorable underwater reefs (still pretty useful truthfully), Google has begun adding underwater shots to Google Maps, starting with the Great Barrier Reef (links to actual map). I clicked around for awhile hoping to spo... / Continue →

    This is the Hyper-Matrix moving wall from media group Jonsprong on display at Hyundai's Motor Group Pavilion in Korea. I could get high and watch it all day (and just might!). Size of the cubes is 30x30cm and are made of styrofoam. All parts are driven by 3375 customized actu... / Continue →

    Horses: they're pretty cool in their natural form. But add a dragon mask and they become RADICAL. This custom leather mask, made by Fury-Fantasy (which I cannot in good conscious recommend visiting unless you want to see freaky-deaky women dressed as horses -- I really took o... / Continue →

    Seen here doing his best to ignore the man behind him wearing underwear on his head, a spokesperson for Suidobashi Heavy Industries introduces the Kuratas, a 13-foot tall weaponized personal mecha for rich people to kill us all. ITS GATLING GUNS FIRE WHEN THE PILOT SMILES. ... / Continue →

    I know the screencap looks fake as shit, but that's only because it was shot on some Cold War era Russian video camera -- the flying DeLorean is actually real. Basically some clever Ruskies made an R/C quadrocopter and added a foam DeLorean body and some light effects and PRES... / Continue →

    This is the scar a man received on his arm after being struck by lightning. It's a Lichtenberg Figure, or the pattern made from an electrical discharge. As you can see, it's kinda flowery. Still beats the shit out of any tribal tat though. How About That of the Day [theda... / Continue →

    The headline: I let my little sister write this one. Just kidding, it was me but I figured I'd cover my bases in case you thought I was dumb. "You are." I am so stupid. This is the 55,000 LED light 'Luminarie De Cagna' built in Ghent, Belgium to celebrate the 2012 Light Fes... / Continue →
