    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 BBC nature documentary about bats and crocodiles that has been edited to give both species laser shooting capabilities. It made me think long and hard about whether I'd prefer to ride a giant laser-shooting bat or giant laser-shooting crocodile into battle. You know... / Continue →

    This is a video of two dudes having a lay down stop-motion karate battle to win the affection of a lady. They're not even fighting for her honor, they're just fighting because they both want to talk to her. What a bunch of jokers. I remember the last time I fought to defend ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a red hot ball of nickel trying to melt its way through a vulcanized rubber hockey puck. In a surprising turn of events (at least for me), the red hot ball of nickel hardly did any damage to the puck (not unlike the red hot ball of nickel vs Nickelodeon GaK)... / Continue →

    This is a relatively high production value video created by RackaRacka of a real-life Master Chief battling a bunch of Call of Duty noobs in a battle to the death. I was impressed with how willing they were to destroy that house. Clearly, this is why you always ask if you can... / Continue →

    This is a video of two Kendo martial artists trying to whack each other with lightsabers. It's basically my idea of the perfect workout. I mean watching it, not actually doing it. One time I watched a guy pedal on a stationary bicycle for almost an hour. You know how many c... / Continue →

    This is a video from The Ellen Show of Jurassic World actor Chris Pratt and dino lover Noah Ritter going head to head in a dinosaur trivia battle. SPOILER: Noah wins. Possibly because Chris let him win. Or maybe Chris isn't actually a dinosaur expert. It's not like every act... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a flamethrower and fire hose doing battle. Who wins? SPOILER: the fire hose. The water wins. Although it did cheat and get a head start. Also, now I want to see a four-way battle between earth, water, fire and wind. Who do you think would win that... / Continue →

    This is a fan-made video using clips from existing films to create a make-believe trailer for a Star Wars Vs. Star Trek movie. Which universe do you think would win? I thought about it for five seconds and decided it wasn't worth thinking about any more. Feel free to express... / Continue →
