    A Chinese chef was killed after a cobra bit his hand some twenty minutes after severing its head. The chef was preparing snake soup (a delicacy) and was bitten when he went to throw the snake's head away in the trash. Me? I would demanded a lowly busboy do it. 'By the time ... / Continue →

    This is a pretty poor quality video (I dunno, maybe next time get somebody else to hold the camera if you've got the fishing rod) of a Goliath grouper (which can grow to 10-feet and 790-pounds) eating a 4-foot black-tip shark in a single bite. For reference, it probably would ... / Continue →

    Because who hasn't dreamed of dropping off some of their own fudge bars in a melting chocolate crapper, UK chocolatiers Choccywoccydoodah and Bathrooms.com teamed up to make a toilet, bidet, sink and bathtub entirely out of Belgian chocolate. All the fixtures together contain ... / Continue →

    This is a video from a live BBC news report during which a fly lands on the camera lens, then a spider comes along, grabs it, and retreats. What the -- why the hell are there spiders living on your cameras? You ever wipe those f***ers down? Clearly somebody isn't doing their... / Continue →

    These are the edible chocolate LEGO blocks created by Akihiro Mizuuchi. They're made by pouring liquid chocolate into LEGO brick shaped molds and waiting for it to cool. Not too complicated. Afterwards, they're durable enough to build with, provided you don't hold them in yo... / Continue →

    This is the terrifying scarecrow (technically a scarebear) robot built by a Turkish farmer to keep bears from destroying his crops. The robot makes car alarm sounds (presumably because it's half car alarm) and has a 25,000-volt taser in one hand which it wildly swings around, ... / Continue →

    In what's sure to become the latest dieting craze, scientists have discovered that the bite from a Lone Star tick can actually make a person allergic to red meat. Dammit, why can't it make me allergic to salad? Then I could eat everything else on my plate and my mom would sti... / Continue →

    ZORAK?! This is a video of a semi-transparent glass mantis gnawing on a blue bottle fly. You can see the pieces of the fly traveling through the mantis's body as it's digested. Eventually, those pieces will become doodoo. And that dookie will fertilize the earth, eventually... / Continue →

    This is a video of 125-pound competitive eater Molly Schuyler devouring a 72-ounce (4.5-pound) steak in under 3-minutes, beating the previous record by almost four minutes. Molly also holds the record for eating the Texas King (a 72-ounce steak plus bread roll with butter, bak... / Continue →

    A man in line at a Burger King bought all 23 pies available (links to Reddit post with more info) to spite the little jerk behind him screaming, "I want a f***ing PIE" and punching his mother. You know, because sometimes you need to parent people's kids for them. The whole wo... / Continue →

    This is the second installment of Jimmy Kimmel and Snoop Dogg's Plizzanet Earth (previously: this one). In this week's episode: a seal being eaten by Jaws. You know, somebody really needs to just go ahead and green-light a whole series of hour-long episodes of these. I could... / Continue →

    This is a video of computer science professor George Hart demonstrating how to cut a bagel to form two interlocking rings. It takes him about a minute. For reference, I can cut a bagel in half in about a second and only draw blood 50% of the time. Plus one time when I was dr... / Continue →

    This is a deep fried tarantula served up by the The Bug Chef (aka David George Gordon), a man who travels around cooking bugs and speaking about the benefits of eating insects. Now, not to sound too progressive or anything, but I've actually eaten spiders before. IN MY SLEEP.... / Continue →

    This is a suspect looking picture of one of artist Sam Van Aken's Trees of 40 Fruit, trees he's continuously grafted branches from different peach, plum, apricot, nectarine, cherry, and almond varieties to. Impressive, but nowhere near as impressive as a tree that can grow win... / Continue →

    Because I like to cover all the hard-hitting topics, this is a shot of Cookie Monster captured by Redditor CaliG831 in a pot of boiling lasagna noodles. Now some people are arguing it's actually the Flying Spaghetti Monster, but I'm gonna have to side with Cookie Monster. I m... / Continue →

    These are shots of some of the foot items available at the Pikachu Cafe in Japan. "Foot?" Obviously I meant food. The cafe will be open for a limited time (until August 31st) outside the Pokemon XY movie exhibit at Tokyo City View in Roppongi Hills. I want that burger and t... / Continue →

    A lion cub feasting on the carcass of a dead buffalo at the Kruger National Park in South Africa managed to get his head trapped in the animal's butthole, presumably while going after the really good meat. He tries to free himself for almost five minutes before growing too wea... / Continue →

    This is a highlight reel of a tree mulcher that can eat an entire tree down to nothing in four seconds. For reference, it would take beavers a week to do that. It is definitely the machine all the forest animals are most afraid of. When reached for comment, Bambi cried about... / Continue →

    Cool helmet, Jacques Cousteau. This is a video demonstrating what happens when you crack an egg underwater (and deep enough for the water pressure to have an effect). I actually posted a better version of the experiment back in 2012, but maybe you weren't reading then. Hell,... / Continue →

    Hey kid, great job with the wood but I'm trying to drop a deuce over here. An ancient Neanderthal turd found in Spain has revealed that our ancestors ate not only meat like some scientists previously thought, but a mix of fruits, berries, nuts and tubers. Basically anything t... / Continue →
