    *Axes as in the plural of axis, not like battle axes, although that would be awesome/dangerous. This is a video of the Starlight amusement park ride built by ABC rides. It raises up to over 70 feet then begins spinning around on three axes to allow riders to experience an ant... / Continue →

    Flambé is the brainchild of the entertainment engineers at Two Bit Circus and is basically a dunk tank with no dunking that uses fire instead of water. When somebody successfully hits the target with a softball, the victim (who's wearing a flame-retardant suit because this isn... / Continue →

    This is a worthwhile 16-bit Super Mario World inspired shot-for-shot parody opening to Game of Thrones (previously: this way worse one and these two badass and very watchable Zelda ones). It's weird the mashups people come up with. It's even weirder the ones they follow throu... / Continue →

    Note: This screencap sucks pretty hard but the video is worth a watch even if you just skip around and pretend you're a space pilot. First person view (FPV) drone racing: it's becoming a thing. Will it become more popular than polo? Definitely after horses go extinct. This ... / Continue →

    This is a video from the Ultra Léger Motorisé aeronautics club in French Guiana of a cat that stowed away in the plane's wing before a flight. Apparently the cat is the club's mascot and wanted to see what this flying thing is all about. The cat is fine and presumably learned... / Continue →

    The Black Hole is a water slide at the Bad 1 waterpark in Bremerhaven, Germany. It's an older slide that's been retrofitted with a ton of different LEDs to make riders feel like they're traveling through star fields and a black hole. I've got the feeling traveling through an ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a stunt pilot taking his four-year old daughter Léa out for her first aerobatic flight. She really gets into it and giggles her face off. Me? I couldn't do it. I only fly out of necessity. It is not something I could ever do for pleasure. Mostly because... / Continue →

    The B-Unstoppable is an unfortunately named quadrocopter/tank hybrid currently seeking funding on Kickstarter. The tankocopter can fly for about nine minutes, drive for 12 - 18 (or any combination of the two), includes a 1280 x 1020 video camera, and costs $130. Obviously, fo... / Continue →

    This is a worthwhile video of Grand Theft Auto gameplay imagined in real life. I see a lot of these 'in real life' videos (usually sent to me by the creators pretending to be people who just stumbled across the videos on Youtube) but they really did a great job with this one, ... / Continue →

    This is a video of TheBackyardScientist pouring molten aluminum into a giant lava lamp to see what happens (previously: a watermelon). Just to see what happens is arguably the number one reason for the science experiments I see performed on Youtube. No scientific method, no c... / Continue →

    This is the Wired Throne built by Redditor and jonat1992. Presumably while on the clock, and presumably while ignoring the constant ringing of his work phone. In my mind this is what all IT guys spend their time doing instead of poking their heads out of the basement and fina... / Continue →

    This is a video of firearms expert/professional shooter Jerry Miculek firing two double barrel .45 ACP 1911 pistols made by Arsenal Firearms. He manages to squeeze off all twenty rounds in 1.5 seconds. That is a lot of bullets in a short amount of time. I remember the first ... / Continue →

    This is A Kid's Imagination, a short video from German animator Chris Kessler of his son running down the sidewalk with Super Mario coins and green turtle shells and fireballs added. I like how he's carrying a magic wand stick. I remember the days I could run down the sidewal... / Continue →

    This is a video of ocean life photographer Timothy Ewing taking pictures of a red octopus while the octopus checks him out. Whenever Timothy starts to disappear behind the rock, the octopus's curiosity gets the best of it and it raises itself to see where he went. Octopuses r... / Continue →

    Universal Studios and Nintendo have just announced a partnership to bring Nintendo game themed rides and attractions to Universal Studios amusement parks. Will there be a Mario Kart ride?! There better be. Plus Metroid, Super Mario Bros, and a whole section dedicated to the ... / Continue →

    Meet Gary, the internet's newest star. The six week old kitten has been dubbed Concerned Kitten due to his worrisome eyebrows. My eyebrows? I lost them in a homemade firework accident and have to Sharpie fake ones on before I go out in the public. Unfortunately my black Sha... / Continue →

    A video posted by Hugh Jackman (@thehughjackman) on May 3, 2015 at 3:53am PDT Because this is the internet and it's dangerous to go along, take this, a recent Instagram from Hugh Jackman of him lip syncing the Bacon Pancakes song from Adventure Time. Who knew Wolverine was s... / Continue →

    This is a video of Portland's Unipiper dressed up as a BB-8 droid and performing the Star Wars theme on his flaming bagpipes. I was impressed with his balancing skills. I have never been able to stand on a ball before, but I have sat on one of my own by accident and felt like... / Continue →

    This is a short video of Marutaro the hedgehog running around with the Sonic theme and CG rings added. It was definitely the best six seconds of my day so far. Not including the six seconds I woke up and thought it was Saturday. The five minutes after that and before I had m... / Continue →
