    Meet Blair McMillan. Blair McMillan is a man. A man with a sick mustache and mullet and the dream to become a real life Kenny Powers torture his family for the next year by only living with technology from 1986 or earlier. Shhhhhhh -- you hear that? That's the sound of a pr... / Continue →

    Because nobody's ever happy with the way things are now, scientists are hard at work trying to create new elements. God willing, these new elements will provide the key to powering the jetpacks of tomorrow so we can all say goodbye to land-based travel and say hello to crashin... / Continue →

    69-years later, Trinity College Dublin has finally seen it's first drop of tar pitch from an experiment started in 1944. As you may recall from the same experiment conducted at the University of Queensland, tar pitch is a viscoelastic polymer, meaning it appears hard and brit... / Continue →

    This is a picture of gun-lover Andrew Tuohy firing a .45 Kimber 1911 underwater in his pool. Presumably during adult swim. Want to see VIDEO of Andrew firing a .40 Glock 22 underwater? Hit the jump to watch. Andrew said the shock from the gun firing was like getting kicked ... / Continue →

    Due to the temporarily renewed interest in space thanks to the Curiosity rover on Mars, here's a video of an astronaut aboard the International Space Station playing with a big ball of water. SPOILER: It looks way funner than playing with water on earth. You watch this video ... / Continue →

    Ever wonder what would happen if you threw a 30kg (~66-lb) box of trash (predominately food remnants) into a volcano from 80-meters (~262-feet)? Me too! Man, I get bored and think of all kinds of shit. Like, what would happen if you got struck by lightning while holding fire... / Continue →

    This is a glass collaboration piece from Elbo Glass and Glass Munky. It's a pipe that looks like a microscope. You just put the sample (weed) you want to study (smoke) into the bowl, add a little fire, and TA-DA -- you're experimenting. WITH DRUGS. Be careful folks, marijua... / Continue →

    This is a battle between a sulfuric-acid based drain cleanser and a wet sponge. SPOILER: The sponge loses (although technically the acid is actually reacting with the water). I know you might be a fan of rooting for the underdog, but in this case the underdog gets its ass bur... / Continue →

    Have I ever told you I used to rest my head against the microwave whenever I was cooking something in it growing up? I did? Oh. Well I have trouble forming new memories now. But I do remember the time I dragged an extension cord out to the middle of the backyard and hooked ... / Continue →

    Wow, what a picture. Somebody must've opted for the deluxe package at Sears Portrait Studio! A study at the University of Washington's Institute for Learning and Brain Sciences took a sample of 64 18-month-old babies, who were all tested individually. The experimental test ... / Continue →

    This is an old-ass video of the magic that happens when you drop a gummi bear into potassium chlorate. Now we could talk about the science behind the magic but then it would become all science-y and less magical and I prefer magic (although I have played Yu-Gi-Oh). Also, I'm s... / Continue →

    The future supervillain in the picture aside, a new study reports that babies are more gooder at learnin' thangs than previously thought and can even do it in they sleeps. Suck it, proper English! THIS BLOGGER MAKES HIS OWN RULES. A new study has found that newborns are capab... / Continue →

    This is a series of experimental gummi bear surgeries. This is only one though, and not even the best, so you'll have to hit the jump to see them all. I particularly liked the heart transplant, brain transplant and dinoplasty. That reminds me: when I was a kid I used to brea... / Continue →

    This is a video of two enema bags in an airplane doing a nosedive so the dog in the back experiences weightlessness. I can't tell if he liked it or not, but my guess is no. Dogs, as a rule, like their feet on the ground and their tongues on their privates. And can you blame ... / Continue →

    Remember when you used to play dress-up as a kid? You'd raid your mom's closet for a skirt and high heels, then smear makeup all over your face and whore yourself out to all the stuffed animals in your bedroom. Good times -- no? Me neither then. That would have just been we... / Continue →
