    I didn't even know micro dominoes were a real thing. They are though, apparently. And 80x smaller and 100x lighter than regular dominoes. How about that?! I could eat a million of them. This is the world record for the longest micro domino maze. It had to be set up with t... / Continue →

    In other record-setting speedrun news, this is a video of speed demon BubblesDelFuego beating Fallout 3 from beginning to end in 23-minutes, 55-seconds (using a good amount of existing wall-hacks). For reference, it took me about 72-hours. Of course I also got the Platinum tr... / Continue →

    This is a video of the new Super Mario Bros speed run record set by speed-runner Blubbler (which doesn't sound like a very speedy name). It takes him all of 4-minutes and 57.69-seconds to run from the moment the timer appears until hitting the axe behind Bowser in world 8-4. ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber Theramin Hero performing the Game of Thrones theme song on his custom built NES keytair. The NES even still functions as a gaming console! Plus it has light-up effects. The whole song kind of sounds like a phone ringing and nobody answering it. T... / Continue →

    This is a video of all the words spoken in Star Wars sorted alphabetically, complete with all the scenes in which they were spoken and a counter of how many times. As you can see, lightsaber was only said once. Sadly, photon-penis-torpedo was never spoken, although it certain... / Continue →

    This is the current world's most expensive Starbucks drink, the $54.75 Sexagintuple Vanilla Bean Mocha Frappuccino, a 128oz (that's a gallon) behemoth with 60 shots of espresso. Twitter user Andrew Chafari got it for free by using his Starbucks gold card. Of course it took ma... / Continue →

    This is a video of the 22,000 piece domino maze Youtuber Hevesh5 built to celebrate reaching 200,000 Youtube subscribers (previously: this video of his domino maze tricks). It took him 25-hours over five days to complete the maze. Plus, as a BONUS, there's a second video of t... / Continue →

    This is a cute video from animator Hombre_McSteez in which he augments reality with cartoons by drawing stop-motion animations on clear cels and holding them over real-life action. It's worth a watch. Unless you're a dingleberry. If you're a dingleberry don't bother because ... / Continue →

    Remember XPogo's extreme pogo-sticking video from last year? Well now they're back with COOLIGANS, their latest balls-to-the-handlebar, penis-to-the-stick, head-to-the-pavement pogo video. It really is worth a watch if you get the chance, they get pretty nuts. They're doing ... / Continue →

    This is the Cthulhuian font created by DeviantARTist StapletonMcTavish. You can actually download the font as a TTF file HERE (link on the far right) and use it to type and print out cryptic messages to your roommates. "Hey GW -- what's this one say?" It says buy more chocol... / Continue →

    This is a video of Spider Man parkour-ing his arachnid face off all over town. He's jumping off buildings, climbing things, doing flips and barrel rolls -- you name it. "Does he hang upside-down and kiss Kirsten Dunst in the rain?" No. But there are plenty of slow-motion cr... / Continue →

    Whoa, I never realized how much Obi-Wan looks like my drunk uncle Carl. This is a video of the Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi duel with the audio replaced by homemade sound effects. You know, sometimes my roommate and I will mute the television and make our own sound effects ... / 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 →
