    This is a series of photos of the PokeRangers, a group of Pokemon/Power Ranger mashup cosplayers who recently attended Otakon 2015 in Baltimore, Maryland. Who's your favorite? I like the Magikarp Ranger. When they all come together to form their giant mechanical Zord, what p... / Continue →

    This is a first person point of view heading down Action Park's 2,000-foot water slide. It's actually more of a slip-n-slide with walls than a traditional waterslide. The whole ride from top to bottom takes almost a minute and a half. That is pretty decent. But what's up wi... / Continue →

    This are several videos of Trude the owl bathing in a sink full of water. Apparently Trude loves bath time, and I can't say I blame him. When I'm in the shower is one of the few times of the day I'm actually able to be happy and relaxed for a couple minutes. Unfortunately, w... / Continue →

    This is a short video of motorists in Saudi Arabia unknowingly testing a new speedbump. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say they might need more warning signage. Still, I bet it's exciting to experience. Like realizing right before you go over the first big hill on a ... / Continue →

    This is a video from The Slow Mo Guys of one of them sitting inside a giant water balloon until it bursts, all captured in glorious slow motion. I learned very little. Mostly just that giant water balloons are a thing that exist and a grown man can fit in one. Still, I would... / Continue →

    Sweet tan, bro. Note: Article originally published in October 2012, but it's going around the internet again because the internet is round like earth so you can sail all the way around it and end up back in the exact same spot (tie-in: boat, sailing). This is HotTug, a hot tu... / Continue →

    This is the homemade CD launching gun made by Youtuber JZSlenker out of an angle grinder. It works beautifully. I'm going to build my own to launch CD's instead of clay pigeons for skeet shooting, then lay waste to my roommate's DVD collection. I will also break a bunch of h... / Continue →

    This is a short video of scientist and Youtuber zBriGuy blowing up the rubber gloves of a laboratory glovebox and running by getting high-fives mid-fives like he just ran a marathon. You know, I ran a 5K marathon once when I was in 8th grade. They had tables and tables of fre... / Continue →

    *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 →
