    PROTIP: Loud, keep your speakers in check. Mixing sodium and water causes a violent chemical reaction (my favorite kind). So what happens when you try to skip a pound disk of sodium across a river? EXPLOSIVE MAGIC. Like a wizard with diarrhea. The sodium disk doesn't re... / Continue →

    This is a video of Jupiter getting smacked with what's believed to be an asteroid or comet. Or at least that's what the governments would like you to believe. But I know better. That was an alien spaceship. Baby Superman, nooooooooo! Way to go, Jor-El. As Phil Plait of Ba... / Continue →

    This is a video of a garbage truck exploding in (where else?) New Jersey. Apparently the truck finally exploded after the fire reached one of the vehicle's natural gas tanks, which shot off "like a missile" according to local police captain James Stevens. Thankfully, nobody w... / Continue →

    Because you can literally make a living creating ultra-slow motion Youtube content, this is a video of Crazy Russian Hacker over-inflating a basketball with a compressor until it explodes. It kind of reminded me of when Clark Grizwold carves the turkey in Christmas Vacation. ... / Continue →

    Spectre, the newest James Bond film, was awarded the Guinness World Record for largest explosion in a film, thanks to this doozy shot in Morocco. I wish I could have been there to smell it. The explosion used 33kg (~72-pounds) of explosives to ignite some 8,418 liters (~2,224... / Continue →

    Ship Your Enemies Glitter is an anonymous $10 (Australian, ~$8 US) service that sends the enemy of your choice (anywhere in the world) an envelope that will launch glitter everywhere when opened. Sure you could send the same thing yourself for cheaper, but that might be TRACEA... / Continue →

    Ninety cows busting serious ass in a cow shed in Germany caused the shed to explode after a static discharge ignited the methane gas, starting a fire that damaged the roof and caused one cow to require treatment for a burn. When reached for comment, every single cow vehemently... / Continue →

    PROTIP: Not on your lunch break. Seen here looking how I felt after Thanksgiving, a dead sperm whale's stomach explodes as some poor bastard pokes it with a knife. The explosion was caused by the build-up of gases in the stomach after the whale died (of natural causes). Can ... / Continue →

    This is a short video from Indiana of a semi truck that was forced off the interstate by a merging car (LEARN HOW TO F***ING DRIVE) and had no other choice but to CATCH SOME SERIOUS AIR AND EXPLODE. Thankfully, nobody was seriously injured or I probably wouldn't be posting thi... / Continue →

    This is a 3-D printed replica of a remote mine from the Nintendo 64 classic Goldeneye 007. It has magnets in the back so it can be stuck to metal surfaces and it has light-up LEDs and a beeper when activated. Man, GoldenEye on the N64 really brings back memories. Mostly of h... / Continue →

    I've used tons of terrible screencaps on Geekologie, and this one is certainly no exception. I had the choice of either using one of the CD just spinning, or after the explosion, and I chose neither of those and went with a really blurry one from during the ACTUAL explosion. ... / Continue →

    Meet Ricardo Fuentes of Mexico City. Ricardo recently pulled several of his coworkers to safety after a methane explosion at the state-run Pemex oil headquarters killed 37 others. When reached for comment why he was unable to save more lives, Ricardo had this to say, "I'm not... / Continue →

    This is a shot of a nuclear explosion less than a millisecond after detonation, taken using a magical camera. Well, it's not really magic, I just don't understand how it works so that MAKES it magic. Same goes for magnets and microwaves. It's all little wizards as far as I'm... / Continue →

    This is a picture of a $3-million, 328-foot wind turbine in North Ayrshire, Scotland trying to cope with hurricane winds. Obviously, it coped poorly. Like me in high school getting called a dork all the time. Which brings up an important topic: bullying. Listen up kids, I w... / Continue →

    This is a 1,000 popsicle stick stickbomb going off. I swear I posted another one on Geekologie before, but I couldn't find it (UPDATE: Found it. More sticks, but less powerful). Anyway, this thing is crazy -- it looks like a frenzied snake when it's going off. Geez, who kne... / Continue →

    This is a series of time-lapse videos created by stitching together 14-years of high-res Hubble Space Telescope images to show the movement of stellar jets from young stars over that period. What's a stellar jet? I'm partial to the SR-71 Blackbird! Fine, FINE -- some actual ... / Continue →

    This is the remote-controlled Digger D-3 "flail tank". It's the latest and greatest (read: explosive-proof) of Digger mine-detonators, which have been around since WWII. Basically, it's steered around on the battlefield like a giant R/C car tank while it wails on the ground ... / Continue →

    Ever wonder what the blast from a tank looks like in slow-motion? Well rest easy, Admiral Inquisitive, because that's exactly what this is. Unless I embedded the wrong video, in which case it might be one of me with a grocery bag over my head ranting about trolls and how I wa... / Continue →

    Pouring gas in a Super Soaker and adding a flame to the nozzle isn't actually a new idea by any means, but it's still fun to watch. Especially when it was lovingly constructed by Geekologie Readers. *sniff* Sorry, I'm getting a little choked up. You guys just make me so damn... / Continue →

    The Indian Space Research Organisation really is based in Bangalore, I wasn't being funny. Ever actually. One time I thought I was being funny but it turns out everybody was laughing because my pants were torn in the back and my b-hole was peepin'. True story :( Here's a f... / Continue →
