    This is an interactive map (links to actual map) of Westeros and the surrounding lands created by Westeros.org user carpiediem. You can click on pretty much anywhere to bring up a Game of Thrones wiki about the area, track characters' travels through the books and show, and mo... / Continue →

    Well, I don't know if it's actually considered juggling, because he only throws two of the balls twice. The rest are only in the air for a single round (13 balls, 15 total catches). Still impressive though. Reminds me of the time in high school before gym class started when ... / Continue →

    This is the Spider Man 'webslinger' built by Patrick Priebe of Laser Gadgets. Except instead of shooting actual webs it uses a little coilgun to shoots darts. It looks dangerous, and there is no doubt in my mind I'd find a way to shoot myself in the hand and/or face trying to... / Continue →

    This is 'Epic Pen Spinning', a video of pen spinners Ian Jenson and PPM spinning the everliving shit out of some pens. It's worth a watch, even if you just skip around. These aren't cheap Bic pens though, these things are PRECISION BALANCED WRITING INSTRUMENTS. Are you think... / Continue →

    This is the t-rex chase scene from Jurassic Park recreated entirely out of cardboard, markers, and bad acting by the folks at CineFix. I also embedded a side-by-side comparison with the original so you can see just how closely they nailed it. Way better than I would have done... / Continue →

    This is a series of twenty popular bands imagined as LEGO minifigs by Adly Syairi Ramly. He says all the photos were taken with an iPhone 5 and there was no Photoshopping of the figures. Not that I was going to accuse him of that. But there's always someone out there in a da... / Continue →

    P0rnBurger is a website chronicling a man's journey to cook one magnificent burger a week, and take a picture of it. Then eat it. Eventually, it will make its way to the bottom of a toilet bowl, but the website doesn't document that part of the adventure. And I'm okay with ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Kevin Hayes setting the world record for solving six increasingly difficult Rubik's Cubes in six minutes, twenty three seconds. Hey, everybody needs a hobby. Starting with the 2x2 his times were: 2x2 - :05 3x3 - :09 4x4 - :36 5x5 - :57 6x6 - 1:45 7x7: 2:5... / Continue →

    Illustrator Joe Butcher (aka October Jones) has started spending his daily commute drawing cartoon heads on Post-Its and holding them up to his fellow riders. Me? I put in my earbuds and pretend to be dead. He does a great job, I'm just not sure how I'd feel if I were the on... / Continue →

    Note: Larger, actually legible version HERE. This is the map of the internet cartographered by DeviantARTist JaySimons. I'm sure there's something to learn by looking at it, I just didn't pick up on any of it. Probably because I started daydreaming about how cool it would be... / Continue →

    British man John Bitmead spent over 1,000 hours and £4,000 (~$6,500) building a street-legal version of a Little Tikes Cozy Coupe car. Why? I'm not sure, apparently he doesn't share the same dream as you and I. "Which is?" A Flintstones-mobile! Allegedly the gas-powered ca... / Continue →

    This is a video tour of animator Alan Becker's recreation of the world of Hayao Miyazaki's 'Spirited Away' entirely in Minecraft. Currently he has the bathhouse, ghost town and a handful of other areas completed. Even as blocky looking as it is, I'd still live there. I've al... / Continue →

    This is a series of portraits by photographer Francois Brunelle entitled 'I'm Not A Lookalike'. They all feature two unrelated strangers who look like twins. Some of them are less convincing than others, but none are less convincing than the actual twins I went to high school... / Continue →

    Note: You have to hit the jump to see the gif if you're on the main page because it's 14MB and was making the site run slow because our servers are on Mars. This is an animated GIF made by 23-year old Kyle Warfield make from a cleverly planned year of selfies. I liked the par... / Continue →

    These are a bunch of the different geometric patterns created by artist Simon Beck marching around in the snow of France. How he knows what the design he's creating will look like from above when he can only see it at ground-level is beyond me, but I suspect he does the same t... / Continue →

    Not these balls mind you -- they would take a forklift! Jk jk, but at least a brown grocery bag. This is the incredible ball-moving machine built by Kawaguchi Akiyuki. Each section is an individual module (often designed by other ball-moving aficionados) that moves the lit... / Continue →

    This is a compilation reel made by domino pros Hevesh5 and Millionendollarbo showing off a bunch of domino maze tricks you don't normally see in domino maze videos. Unless you're a maker of complicated domino mazes yourself, in which case you've probably seen them all and coul... / 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 →

    Note: Skip to 0:50 for the lyrics reciting to start. This is a video of Youtuber tehcubedude reciting the lyrics to Daft Punk's 'Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger' with the help of a Rubik's Cube. It was cool. Maybe not as cool as winning the $5-million jackpot I've been tryi... / Continue →

    This is a video of a dude solving a Rubik's cube in 25-seconds while doing one-armed pushups. Impressive, but I just got finished solving a Rubik's cube in 15-seconds doing NO-ARMED pushups. "Are no-armed pushups when you just lay there?" YEP. "And did you actually solve th... / Continue →
