    This is the very impressive pumpkin carving of Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong on the moon (it's a recreation of this photograph) carefully etched away by pumpkin carving extraordinaire Edward Cabral (more of his work HERE). Obviously, Edward will not be allowed to enter m... / Continue →

    This is the Halloween yard display created by Vicki Barrett and her husband of Parma, Ohio. Apparently some parents are complaining because there's an elementary school less than a block away and it's frightening the kids. I can see why. Hell, I'm a grown-ass man (only phys... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber KyleDaCrusher getting 100% completion on drums for DragonForce's 'Through The Fire And Flames' on PC. It's almost eight minutes of pure holy shit. The only time I ever move that fast is when I'm having a seizure. I suck at music video games so har... / Continue →

    Seen here on what appears to be a 4,000-lane highway, a checkpoint on the other side of a tollbooth causes a bottleneck and massive traffic jam outside of Beijing. Honestly, if I had been stuck in this I probably would have spontaneously human combusted. I do not cope well wi... / Continue →

    This is a video of lightning within a super-charged volcanic ash cloud in Patagonia. It doesn't even look real. It is real though. ALLEGEDLY. Don't trust every video you see on the internet. I watched a tutorial about how to cook the perfect steak earlier and now my kitche... / Continue →

    Yachts are for poor people. This is Kokomo Ailand, a mobile private island developed by Migaloo Private Submarines (who specialize in submersible yachts). They haven't actually built one yet, but claim they can immediately with existing technology provided someone forks over ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a man confronting a giant brown bear who's been napping underneath his deck. Presumably because the bear thought it was Goldilock's house but couldn't find a way in to f***ing break everything. I would never get that close to a bear. The bear let's the dud... / Continue →

    This is a video of Kurt Steiner setting the world record for stone skipping, managing to skip a rock 88 times on a lake in Pennsylvania's Allegheny National Forest. That is impressive. I think my personal best is maybe 8 or 10, but I have the hand-eye coordination of a newbor... / Continue →

    This is a shot of Gene McMullen, his wife, and the 2,145.5 pound pumpkin Gene grew. It set a new North American record for heaviest pumpkin (the world record for heaviest pumpkin is 2,323 pounds, grown by Beni Meier of Switzerland last year). That is a big ass pumpkin. That ... / Continue →

    This is a video from a family escaping a wildfire in Lake County, California. The fire destroyed 95-square miles, claimed one life, destroyed hundreds of homes, and displaced some 13,000 residents. That is awful. This is what it looked like driving through the fire while the... / Continue →

    This is the Zerg Hydralisk costume made and worn by cosplayer Dadboy (who clearly started having children entirely too young). That is some impressive work. "I have never wanted to have sex with a costume so bad in my life." Ahahahahhaha, WHAT?! Seriously I was thinking the... / Continue →

    This is a video of the MSC Zoe performing the Star Wars theme on its horn. The MSC Zoe is the largest container ship in the world at 1,297 feet long and has an engine that is over 50 feet tall. That is a pretty big engine. For reference, the engine in my car is about a foot ... / Continue →

    Jk jk, it already has rooms -- it's a house! This is the 'domestikator', an art project home built in Germany by creative firm Atelier Van Lieshout that was designed to look like two people (they actually look like two Cyclopes to me) going at it doggystyle. It is quite possi... / Continue →

    This is a very worthwhile video of a group of people who set up an elaborate first person shooter game scenario, then let strangers on Chatroulette tell the player what to do. You just need to watch it, it's pretty amazing. Still, it's weird to think all those people who play... / Continue →

    This is a video of Red Bull death-wisher Laso Schaller setting the new world record for highest dive (technically he does a pencil) with a 192.913-foot (58.8-meter) jump off Cascata del Salto in Maggia, Switzerland. He free-falls for 3.58 seconds and reaches a speed of 76mph (... / Continue →

    This is Imgur user yourinnermoppet and her fiancé's Back To The Future themed engagement photo, captured by photographer Ricky Middlesworth. They really nailed it. Apparently yourinnermoppet got her dream wedding proposal ("My fiancé knows how much I love Halloween, so when i... / Continue →

    This is how big a full grown grizzly paw is. Don't worry though, that lady didn't kill it, the bear is sedated and waiting to be tagged. Personally, I don't care how sedated a grizzly bear is, I'm not holding its hand. Could you imagine that thing waking up while you're posi... / Continue →

    This is the IndieGoGo campaign to build a full-scale replica of Minas Tirith somewhere in southern England. The architects and structural engineers behind the project have calculated they only need around £1,850,000,000 (~$2,885,000,000) to make it happen. If they don't reach... / Continue →

    This is a video of Mr. Rodgers singing a new Happy Birthday song to me because it's my birthday. I am over 800 years old today because I am a sorcerer. Oh, the things I've seen. Mostly the interior of the mountain cave I live in. You know what happened to the last group of ... / Continue →

    This is a video of the 720-ton steel ball damper swinging inside the Taipei 101 during a recent typhoon. The damper, which is suspended in a chamber between the 87th and 92nd floors, swung more then three-feet during the typhoon in order to counteract the swaying of the buildi... / Continue →
