    Note: Really been struggling. I'll be back full blast tomorrow, promise. This is an infographic comparing an internet minute in 2013 versus one in 2014. I learned a lot. Mostly that it would make a lot more sense to have the numbers right next to each other. Thanks to Da... / Continue →

    This is a video from a Lithuanian talent show of some guy who claims his skill is knife throwing, although I suspect his real talent is killing assistants. When attempting to knife giant playing cards out of his assistant's hands, he manages to hit him with the knives both tim... / Continue →

    This is a video of a "professional" demonstrating what happens when you step on a lava flow. You don't actually sink, it just gives a little before trying to set your shoe on fire. But what about the even hotter, redder lava in the crater of a volcano? Would a really light p... / Continue →

    Be honest, how do I look? "Dead." Because you only get one chance to make a last impression, a company in Japan allows people who are still alive to try on the outfit and makeup they want to be wear during their open-casket funeral (plus choose a custom coffin). Me? I don't... / Continue →

    *kick, kick -- byeeeee!* These are a couple videos of people riding the the Sky Tower at Tivoli Friheden in Denmark. You basically just freefall 100-feet into a net below, reaching speeds up to 55MPH in the process. It's like throwing yourself off a building, but without the... / Continue →

    This is a short 3-second clip of George R.R. Martin responding to a question about what he thinks of the fans who demand he hurry up and finish the Song of Ice and Fire series in case he dies soon. For reference, Martin is 65. "And round." I didn't say that. I will say that... / Continue →

    The Cebu City Zoo in the Philippines is now offering Python massages. For a small fee, thrill-seeking visitors can lay underneath four 20-foot Burmese Pythons and freak out until zookeepers remove them. The only problems are 1) Burmese Pythons are constrictor killers, so if o... / Continue →

    This is a video of some thrill-seeking jackass who decided to lay on the train tracks and let a train pass over him. But then he gets bored and decides to crawl out from under the train while it's still passing. Now I'm not saying I wish he'd been crushed, but I'm also not NO... / Continue →

    Remember the Aerofex hoverbike from back in 2012? Well the company has been hard at work fine-tuning the design and says models could be available for sale to the public as early as 2017. You can even already put down a $5,000 deposit towards one of the $85,000 deathtraps. A... / Continue →

    This is a dead nose-horned viper found in Macedonia with a centipede poking its nasty little head out the hole it ate through the snake. Dammit Mother Nature, I thought we talked about this! Don't make me tell Father Time you've started drinking again. BRUTAL DETAILS: The u... / Continue →

    This is the poorly placed billboard advertising the upcoming season of Game of Thrones. I mean, it's true, it's just sad. Hopefully none of the old folks venture outside and see it. You stay in the cafeteria and slurp Jell-O, I'll take care of this. *climbs to top of buildi... / Continue →

    In rare good news, astrobiologists have determined the earth should be habitable for at least another 1.75-billion years. For reference, that's 1.75-billion years minus 50 years more than I care about. The research was led by Andrew Rushby, from UEA's school of Environmenta... / Continue →

    Note: Turn your volume down before playing the videos. This is the helmet-cam footage from 25-year old James Lee, a skydiver who accidentally got struck by another skydiver and knocked unconscious during freefall. Thankfully, a couple of the other jumpers noticed and came to ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a bus trip along a road carved from the side of a mountain in the Himalayas. Possibly the road in India from Killar in the Pangi Valley to Kishtwar, Kashmir. It is terrifying. I don't care if that road ends at the fountain of youth, I will die old and ugl... / Continue →

    These are the remains of a Roomba from Austria that allegedly turned itself on, ran onto a kitchen hotplate, and burned to death. Robot suicide? We can only hope. I like how you can see the ash tire tracks from when it was running around in circles while on fire. That makes... / Continue →

    This is a small photographic series of birds (and a bat) that photographer Nick Brandt gathered around the shoreline of Lake Natron in Tanzania and posed for photos like they were still alive. The lake, which reaches temperatures as high as 60°C (140°F), also has a basic pH be... / Continue →

    Note: Picture relatively unrelated but still from one of the best games ever made. Funeral goers in Zimbabwe were sent scattering after a man believed to be dead for a day started moving around in his coffin. Turns out he wasn't dead after all, just MOSTLY dead. *cue Miracle... / Continue →

    This is the triforce family crest (kamon) that Twitter user mahosyouzyo allegedly created after a relative passed away and was approached by her family requesting an updated design. You, uh, might want to be careful about which ocarina songs you go tooting around that memorial... / Continue →
