    This is a video compilation of all the non-doctor performed amputations in the Star Wars film franchise. It was pretty brutal. I can't help but always feel bad for that wampa every time Luke cuts its arm off. I know he was going to kill and eat him, but over time I kind of g... / Continue →

    These are photos of the aftermath of a 12-foot South African python that tried to swallow a 30-poud porcupine. Thankfully, I can honestly say I have never been that hungry before. I don't even think I've ever been 2-pound porcupine hungry. A week after these photos were ta... / Continue →

    This is the Battle Of Hoth inspired wedding photo taken and digitally manipulated by professional wedding photographer Tanya Musgrave. My girlfriend actually wants to do something similar, except instead of a Star Wars theme she wants me to be edited out of the photo entirely ... / Continue →

    This is a video of two fencers performing a choreographed lightsaber duel at the 2015 Fencing Senior World Championships. It's weird to think of seniors fencing, I always imagined they'd be more into jousting on account of their wheelchairs and all. "Not that kind of senior."... / Continue →

    Because this is what the internet was made for, here's is a video of peacock spiders edited to have little lightsabers in their hands. One couple even do battle! Was that a male and a female that were going to have sex? NO CLUE. I'm not really well versed in spider mating h... / Continue →

    Cats: they like to do battle. I admire that about them. I'm also jealous of how much they get to sleep. This is the 3-D printed cat armor designed by 3-D printing enthusiast Jwall (pronounced J-Wall) of PrintThatThing. You can download the design at Thingiverse HERE to prin... / Continue →

    The Battelle DroneDefender is a rifle designed to take over radio control of drones so you can bring them to the ground and stomp them. I just blasted myself in the nuts with one and now the doctor says I can't have kids for another 600 years which is actually fine with me bec... / Continue →

    This is a video of a horned lizard (aka horny toad -- the species of lizard that can shoot blood out of its eye when threatened) riding a combat robot into battle. It is pretty much exactly how I imagine the future. Well, minus the fancy blinds and decorative window treatment... / Continue →

    This is a live-action battle between Princess Peach and Princess Zelda. Who wins? SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER: The one who you'd expect to win. "Zelda?" Of course Zelda, was there ever any question? If you would have bet on Peach you have zero business ever going to Vegas, not... / Continue →

    This is the chainmail wine bottle sleeve available from ThinkGeek ($25). It keeps your wine bottle safe from sword and arrow attacks. It does not keep your wine bottle safe from being opened and drank though, which is why I'm a little bit tipsy right now. *hiccup* Hey. Hey.... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy who made himself dual Roman candle machine guns. They look glorious. I would love to be there with a metal trashcan lid trying to deflect shots back at him. Throw a keg of beer and some hot dogs in the mix and that's pretty much exactly what I want t... / Continue →

    This is the Mad Max inspired go-kart paintball battle created by Devinsupertramp and his pals to promote the new Mad Max video game coming out September 1st. That looks like it was fun to make. I want to do the same thing, except instead of paintball guns we all have ninja sw... / Continue →

    This are fights-only (no interviews or other filler) edits of the first three episodes of the new BattleBots show on ABC. I had already forgotten the show was coming out, so it was nice to be able to see these. Plus they're only the good parts (fights), so you don't waste any... / Continue →

    In other sad robot news, MegaBots, a U.S. robotics company, has challenged a Japanese robotics company (Suidobashi Heavy Industries -- the maker of the Kuratas personal mech) to a giant robot battle. Now I'm not much of a betting man (I'm a former gambling addict, among a bunc... / Continue →

    This is a first person point of view video captured by Alex Yde, who is part of a viking battle themed stunt show. He does a lot of parkour. Overall, the fight looks pretty intense. I love doing battle. Of course, I prefer doing battle from the saddle of my dragon mount, wh... / Continue →
