    Remember last week's point-of-view video of the world's tallest water slide? Well it just had its first human riders, and this is the video of them shitting their pants on the way down. Looks intense. Still, a water slide you ride in a raft is no real water slide in my opini... / Continue →

    A Chinese father hired a group of in-game assassins to constantly target and kill his 23-year old son's character in his favorite role playing game in an attempt to discourage his gaming habits and convince him to get a job. Good luck with that. I'm pretty sure dying all day ... / Continue →

    Everybody needs a hobby, and for some people that hobby is extreme unicycling. Different strokes for different folks, you know? I juggle chainsaws. No I don't. I play video games and drink. I used to roller skate around the neighborhood during the day in a helmet and booty... / Continue →

    Even if this is fake, I could do it in real life. Except twice as far, and with an infinite times more flips (front AND back) BECAUSE I AM KING OF WATER SLIDES. You hear me? THE KING! Go ahead, try to push me off, I dare you. You can't do it can ... / Continue →

    This video has to be seen to be believed. Some guys strapped LED covered vests on sheep and then had the dogs herd them in specific patterns to create ridiculous art on a hillside in Wales. They even play a game of Pong and recreate the Mona Lisa using different colored LEDs ... / Continue →

    Why shouldn't you kite-surf in tropical storms? Because they'll f*** you up. Not only will they slam you into the beach, they'll fling you across the street and into a concrete wall for good measure. Now I hate to say this is Darwinism at work, but I will mention the Saber-T... / Continue →
