    This is a video from the 2014 World Bowling Men's Championship in Abu Dhabi in which Team USA's Bill O'Neill thinks he bowls a strike, but one of the pens flips and bounces itself back upright. Bill then had to bowl for a spare, which he got. Later, I assume he was kicked off... / Continue →

    This is the mashup weapon forged by the folks of Mat At Arms that combined all four ninja turtle weapons: Donatello's bō, Leonardo's ninjato, Raphael's sai, and Michelangelo's nunchaku. The result...is whatever the hell this thing is. A bōjatosaichaku? I dunno, but I can a... / Continue →

    This is a video of some insane bowling trick shots by Australian pro bowler Jason Belmonte. Jason teamed up with trick basketball shot pros Dude Perfect (of this video fame) to deliver a video that I can only imagine is giving The Dude a monster boner right now. I mean, if he... / Continue →

    This is a shot of the R2-D2 inspired jerseys the Durham Bulls minor league baseball team will be sporting on Star Wars Night, May 4th. Not bad. But more importantly, what do the first 1,000 fans to the stadium get? Ewok bobbleheads? Plastic lightsabers? *actually takes the... / Continue →

    This is a video of drummer Tyler Williams of the Beau Hodges Band demoing a bunch of Firepixel flamethrowers that respond to different drum beats via attached MIDI controllers. Cool, but I want voice activated flamethrowers. IN MY CAR. Each FirePixel is capable of 256 differe... / Continue →

    *wolf whistle* Nice ass, bro! This is a video of table tennis pro Timo Boll doing battle with a KUKA industrial robot. Allegedly the KUKA is the world's fastest robot. Is that true? I doubt it. Of course, I doubt everything. Question everything -- that's my motto. Jk jk... / Continue →

    This is a video of a group of Siberian percussionists playing music on frozen ice sheets in Lake Baikal in -20°C (-4°F) temperatures. I didn't even know sound could travel attemperatures that cold. "You're an idiot." It's true, I'm not that smart. But I was smart enough to ... / Continue →

    Break Club is a club in Buenos Aires, Argentina where members (predominately women) go to break shit with a stick, shatter bottles against the wall, kick stuff, and all around have the best fifteen minutes of their day. It's like a one-sided Fight Club. You know what I do to ... / Continue →

    This is a video of pro golfer Rory McIlroy doing battle against the Golf Laboratory Computer Controlled Hitting Machine in an accuracy challenge. The robot is a surprisingly good golfer. Plus insulter, which made it pretty obvious the thing was actually getting its lines from... / Continue →

    This is the 1984 Dodge Colt Turbo that was turned into a bumper car lookalike and put up for auction on eBay. I kind of want it. Only kind of though, I'm not in love with it like I would be a short school bus for sale. Everything works on this car. The body is custom one pie... / Continue →

    This is a waaaaaay too realistic looking albino snake cake from North Star Cakes in England. I was pretty sure it was Photoshopped at first, but there's a bunch of closeups after the jump (including one of the thing actually cut up), and it's definitely real. Now call me old f... / Continue →

    I'm pretty sure I knew cymbals actually had some motion to them when struck, but nothing like this. This is like...the motion of the ocean. My stomach wouldn't even move that much if you punched me as hard as you could. Yes, yes it would. No lie: I got into a fight in eight... / Continue →
