    This is the nearly 9-foot, 280-pound wels catfish caught by angler Dino Ferrari (cool name) and his brother Dario in Italy. It is one of the largest ever caught, and was released back into the river from which it came after the two brothers weighed and measured it. Me? I wou... / Continue →

    This is a timelapse released from NASA of the sun shot in various wavelengths to celebrate the five year anniversary of the Solar Dynamics Observatory being in space (and taking all the pictures used for the videos). What's your favorite wavelength? I think mine is just long ... / Continue →

    So I guess I completely forgot about Iggy the Avatar Tattoo guy since May of 2013, but apparently he's still around, and still Avatar-ing his face off. His latest tattoo additions include getting the rest of his striped legs filled in with a lighter blue, as well as a couple c... / Continue →

    This is a tour of a Parisian apartment rendered with the Unreal Engine 4. It looks like reality. It's not though, it's just a rendering of an apartment that doesn't even exist in real life. Pretty impressive. Even more impressive? Trying to render my apartment to look real... / Continue →

    In there's no way my mom will ever let me play that news, this is the official gameplay trailer for the April 14th release of Mortal Kombat X. SO MUCH BLOOD. Heads getting split open, arms being ripped off -- you name it. My God, I can't wait for a friend to get this and inv... / Continue →

    This is a brief portrait-mode video from the Glen Afric Farm in South Africa featuring a tiger leaping for a piece of meat in slow-motion. Pretty amazing, right? Sadly, that piece of meat was Piglet. Hit the jump for the video, then let's make some really convincing tiger co... / Continue →

    Scientists recently discovered a new species of fish after lowering a camera and research equipment to a depth of 8,143-meters (26,716-feet, ~5.05-miles) in the Marianas Trench. This is video of that fish. It looks kind of like the ghost of a bird. And perhaps it IS the ghos... / Continue →

    This is a short slow-motion video of a guy performing two insane spinning kicks on one of those see-how-hard-you-can-punch arcade boxing machines. As our sister site Hedonistica pointed out, it's annoying they never played the kicks in regular speed, or showed his score. Of c... / Continue →

    This is Ron Lim's cover of Silver Surfer Vol. 3 #20 recreated by Hollywood makeup artist Cris Alex, who painted a male model to appear as a 2-D comic book drawing. As you can clearly see unless you're some jerk internet commenter plagued by troll-vision, she did an amazing job... / Continue →

    This is a video of Ukrainian speed climber Danyl Boldyrev jumping up a 15-meter (49.2-foot) wall in a record-breaking 5.60 seconds. For reference, that's about twice as fast as I could even run 15-meters, and that's assuming I don't cramp or trip and get a booboo. You know ho... / Continue →

    So have you guys been checking out all the videos on our sister site Hedonistica everyday? Because you should really make a habit of that. Like brushing your teeth, or putting pants on before work (casual Fridays excluded). Seen here practicing for the high school talent sho... / Continue →

    This is the Pillow 13x13x13 IQ Brick (not actually a Rubik's cube, just similar) available from Brando. It costs $320, which is pretty expensive for something I'm inevitably going to throw at the ground as hard as I can, then stab and set on fire. Just saying, you know what h... / Continue →

    Filmmaker and Academy Award nominee PES, best known for his whimsical series of stop-motion videos featuring food created out of things that aren't food, is back at it, this time making a beautiful submarine sandwich out of old boxing gloves, footballs, socks, bicycle reflector... / Continue →

    Because some people have neighbors that are willing to do more than just call the cops on them for playing their music too loud at 8PM on a Friday night, these are a couple videos from an entire neighborhood that got together to synchronize their Christmas lights to music. I c... / Continue →

    PROTIP: Ramp up the volume and prepare to thrash. This is a video of two women cooking shrimp in less than a second with some sort of shrimp-shooting air cannon, breading/egg wash blasters, and a fireball. I don't even know what they're selling, but you better believe I'm on ... / Continue →

    Did you see the Star Wars teaser trailer? If not, GO WATCH THAT. I want one of those soccer ball droids. This is a short video of several clever Japanese flip books. They use cut-outs and secret compartments to add to the effect. Honestly, I wouldn't mind finding a couple ... / Continue →

    This is a video of ultra conservative Christian Megan Fox (not that Megan Fox, trust me) taking a trip to the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago to debunk their 'Evolving Earth' exhibit and audit it for a liberal (aka scientific, in her mind) bias. It starts off awful ... / Continue →
