    Please, no Japanese pianist jokes, this is an upscale club we're running. This is a video of Japanese pianist Yoshiki performing against a holographic version of himself. It kind of reminded me of Dueling Banjos from Deliverance, but with infinitely less inbred rednecks tryin... / Continue →

    *wolf whistle* Nice ass, bro! This is a video of table tennis pro Timo Boll doing battle with a KUKA industrial robot. Allegedly the KUKA is the world's fastest robot. Is that true? I doubt it. Of course, I doubt everything. Question everything -- that's my motto. Jk jk... / Continue →

    These are pictures of a river otter attacking an American alligator at the Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge in Florida. Apparently the otter killed and ate the gator, disproving everyone who thought otters are precious little angels that would make great pets. Those thi... / Continue →

    These are the photos from a battle between a python and a crocodile near Lake Moondarra in western Queensland, Australia. Apparently the battle went on for hours, with the python eventually choking the crocodile out, then swallowing it. For the record, that is not how I want ... / Continue →

    This is the Batman versus Terminator animated short created by Tony Guerrero and Mitchell Hammond. Some background while I cough my f***ing lungs out into the sink. I swear I hocked up something this morning that was like, alive. I tried to scoop it up in a paper cup but it ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Dante Brasco reprising his roll as Rufio in a sweded version of his final sword fight scene from Hook. Man, Hook is a great movie. One of my favorites. If you showed up at my door tonight with Hook and a bucket of popcorn I would 1) check the bucket of pop... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Olympic men's 500m speed skating final with Mario Kart Double Dash weapon effects added. It makes me wish every video had Mario Kart weapon effects added. One time my mom asked me clean up the video she took of my little sister's dance recital and I edi... / Continue →

    This is the $3,500 Medieval Castle Murphy bed made and sold by Etsy shop TinyTownStudios (who also make a bunch of cool pirate treehouses). The drawbridge lowers to reveal a bed. Unfortunately, it's only a single size bed, which is weird because you have a MEDIEVAL CASTLE IN ... / Continue →

    This is the tactical raptor that was recruited by Blue Force Gear and on display at a recent trade show. Could you imagine these things running around on the battlefield? That would be BADASS. "That would be like Dino-Riders." WHICH WAS BADASS. Dinosaurs and lasers: hands ... / Continue →

    This is a Dragon Ball Z fight imagined in real life. I dunno, if you're into Dragon Ball you might like it. I'd be lying if I told you I watched all eight minutes though, because time is money and I'm broke right now. Thankfully I'm still rich in...dammit, I've got to be ric... / Continue →

    This is the Joker themed leather suit of armor and mask made by Prince Armory (of Batman and Aquaman armor fame). It looks amazing. I think Facebook commenter Christopher R. really hit the nail on the head when he said, "I would like to be buried in this, even if it meant sti... / Continue →

    Cats: like me, they love doing battle. There's nothing more exhilarating in a cat's life than tearing something else with a heartbeat to pieces. This is the cat battle armor made and sold by Etsy shop schnabuble (previously: this cat battle armor). It costs $500, which is wh... / Continue →

    This is the Magnolia tree that was transformed into a giant squid by sisters Jill Watt and Lorna using over four miles of yarn. Wait -- do trees even like playing dress up? Did Jill and Lorna at least ask it first? Because the last humanity needs right now is a battle with t... / Continue →

    This is the $150,000 Intimidator from McDermott Handcrafted Cues. It started life as an 82-pound piece of solid stainless steel, and 1,862 man hours later, became...this thing. This thing I wouldn't want to see anybody swinging that in a bar fight. Not unless they're on my s... / Continue →
