    This is a first person point of view of what it's like to be shot out of a cannon, filmed with a GoPro attached to the head of Gemma Kirby, the youngest female human cannonball, who has more than 500 launches under her scratched and dented crash helmet. Me? I have never been ... / Continue →

    This is a video of big wave surf legend Laird Hamilton riding some waves on a surfboard with a hydrofoil attached, so it rises up out of the water when it gets up to speed. Personally, you'd never catch me in the ocean with ANYTHING strapped to my feet. That's like, a death s... / Continue →

    This is a video from America's Funniest Videos of a little girl demonstrating her new Flutterbye Flying Fairy toy. Apparently she got a fire-element fairy though, because it heads straight for the fireplace. I've never heard of Flutterbye Flying Fairies before, but I just wat... / Continue →

    This is the giant Yoda head hot air balloon (as well as a Darth Vader one previously seen HERE) recently on display at the 2014 Albuquerque International Balloon Festival, which I unfortunately had to miss this year because I was home sick with life-threatening diarrhea. PROT... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a motorcyclist trying to perform that hold-your-seat-and-fly-like-Superman trick when he misses grabbing the seat and really does go flying. It is hands down the coolest motorcycle trick I have ever seen and I really encourage this guy to try out for m... / Continue →

    I'M A BIIIIIIIIRD! This is a video about a 'salmon cannon' designed to launch salmon upstream in places where dams make swimming upstream to spawn impossible. The cannon can shoot the fish up to 22MPH, with a rate of 40 salmon per minute. Then they all get together and have ... / Continue →

    What the -- are you blowing a seagull?! This is the $135 Facial Fitness Pao from Japan. It allegedly firms and tightens your face. I've got the feeling it doesn't work that well. Plus for some reason famed Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo is the spokesperson. Pfft, ... / Continue →

    This is a point of view trip down the 17-story Verrückt slide at Kansas City's Schlitterbahn water park. It basically looks exactly how you'd expect -- like you're about to die. Also, I didn't know you rode the slide on a raft. I thought you rode it bare-assed. Well not BAR... / Continue →

    This is a pretty awesome looking video (and I never say that) for the water-based Hoverboards made by Zapata Racing (previously: their Flyboard). Hey McFly you bojo, hoverboards don't work on water! Apparently these ones do though. As a matter of fact they only work on water... / Continue →

    This is a video of GoFast jetpack pilot Nick Macomber flying around the spire of Denver's Four Seasons Hotel, some 565-feet (~172-meters) in the air. That looks like fun. I can only hope we're all traveling by jetpacks before I die. Sure they'll have to bury all powerlines t... / Continue →

    This is a video from Corridor Digital imagining what it would look like if Superman had a camera attached to his head. It's mostly lots of flying around avoiding powerlines, although he does stop a robbery in progress. You know, would be cool if Superman really did have a cam... / Continue →

    Wingman is an upcoming dating app for meeting people at the airport and on your flight. It's kind of like Tinder or Grindr, except with more potential for sex in an airplane lavatory. You ever gotten a handjob under a blanket after the beverage cart passes? LEGIT. You just... / Continue →

    Listen: I don't get paid for posting these GoPro videos. I just post them because they're interesting. I am not endorsing GoPro. At least not until they send me a camera durable enough to survive the amateur sex tape I've been planning. You ever seen a p0rno with extreme st... / Continue →

    This is a video from R/C Helicopter stunt crew HeliGraphix of a ~125-pound woman (plus equipment) being lifted off the ground by two heavy-duty modified Gaui X7 "Megatron" R/C copters. I thought it was fake at first, but apparently it's real. So that's pretty cool. Now someb... / Continue →

    These are some pictures and a video from Sports Illustrated of Kate Upton modeling two $20 Target bikinis in nearly zero gravity aboard a vomit comet. I think we can all agree that, at least from a purely scientific standpoint, they provide significant insight about how big ol... / Continue →
