    This is a video of the Olympic men's 500m speed skating final with Mario Kart Double Dash weapon effects added. It makes me wish every video had Mario Kart weapon effects added. One time my mom asked me clean up the video she took of my little sister's dance recital and I edi... / Continue →

    This is a video of everybody's favorite nature documentary host David Attenborough narrating a women's Olympic curling match. You know, David Attenborough might actually have my favorite voice of all time. It's so relaxing. Like, if he read me a bedtime story before I KNOW I... / Continue →

    This is the video of James Nolastname and his father rescuing two deer stranded in the middle of Albert Lea Lake in Minnesota. How the deer managed to get that far out in the first place is beyond me. Apparently the father/son team managed to rescue three deer that day. And,... / Continue →

    This is a short video of ice boulders washing up in Glen Arbor on Lake Michigan. When reached for comment, the Ice Witch had this to say, "Want to rub my nipples?" Nice try lady, but you're not turning me into an ice sculpture. The giant ice balls form in just-below-freezin... / Continue →

    This is what it looks like to shoot boiling water out of a Super Soaker in -41°C (-41.8°F) temperatures. I'm sorry, but that is just too f***ing cold. Any of you live in places that get that cold? Here's what I want you to do. Look outside. What do you see? "Snow." Anyth... / Continue →

    This is the third snow-related post in a row. That must be some sort of Geekologie record. One that will definitely won't be going down in the history books and probably won't be remembered by a single person after tomorrow. God willing, I'll drink it out of my memory before... / 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 →

    Note: Full-res version HERE. This is an animated GIF featuring a year of earth's changing seasons in a single second. Just think, if time really went this fast you'd be dead in less than 80-seconds. Thankfully it doesn't though, so you'll survive until next next month when y... / Continue →

    Because Santa has been looking for an excuse to buy a boat, the North Pole is melting and now a shallow lake sitting atop a sheet of ice. No word if it's deep enough to drown a naughty elf in, but I bet I could do it. *holding underwater* MY BIKE'S WHEEL CAME OFF, YOU LITTLE... / Continue →

    Everybody have a nice holiday weekend? Want to stand around the water cooler and compare firework scars in a little? Cool. Coca-Coca recently sold their soda in special limited edition bottles made out of ice on the beaches of Colombia. I would have liked to try one of thos... / Continue →

    This is a video of some guy in Argentina trying to protect his car from hail damage by breast-stroking around on top of it. At some point a friend comes out with a rug to help but quickly realizes his buddy is a moron and retreats back inside for some hot cocoa and to troll fo... / Continue →

    This is a short video from Sweden of ice crystals beginning to form on a soap bubble in -30°C (-22°F) temperatures. Sure it would be cool to do yourself, but the only experiment you'll see me running when it's that f***ing cold is how long I can stay under the covers. Hit th... / Continue →

    This is a video of a garden hose that was left out in freezing temperatures overnight while coiled up. The next morning its owner uncoiled it, turned on the water, and SURPRISE: got a free pile of cylindrical ice cubes. That's weird because when I did the same thing growing u... / Continue →

    This is a worthwhile video of a red-hot ball of nickel quickly melting its way through a block of ice from the same guy who brought us the red-hot nickel in a cup of water video. The sound effects aren't as rad (but are still pretty cool) in this one, but it's awesome to watch... / Continue →

    In what possibly might be the best ice sculpture to have at a wedding ever, this is a full size Toyota Landcruiser carved out of a block of ice. It even has an open door so you can sit in it and make the steering wheel look even more like it was molded out of shit because peop... / Continue →

    This is a video of a playable record made entirely out of ice. It was created for the Shout Out Loud's new single, 'Blue Ice'. You know, so it's an appropriate medium. Spaghetti? Spaghetti would probably make a terrible record even if your new single was called 'Meatballs &... / Continue →

    This is a video of how to set ice on fire by adding ice cubes to a layer of calcium carbide. Except the ice isn't really burning -- it's just providing the water fuel that calcium carbide needs to produce acetylene gas, which will burn like a lit fart. Calcium carbide consis... / Continue →

    OMG ADAM, IT'S STARTING. IT'S STARTING! This is a video of a GIANT 7.4 cubic km (~1.75 cubic mile) chunk of ice breaking off the Ilulissat glacier in Greenland (note: link has higher res video than I embedded after the jump). It was captured by James Balog as part of his doc... / Continue →

    You notice the 'scientits' in the title? Well I did that to test your proofreading skills and it's staying. According to data recently sent back to planet earth from the space probe MESSENGER, there are craters near Mercury's poles that are permanently shaded due to the plane... / Continue →

    This is a $25 Severed Wampa Arm Ice Scraper from ThinkGeek. It looks like a wampa arm, but no wampas were harmed in the making of the product. OR WERE THEY? I could tell you no humans were harmed when I made coffee in the breakroom this morning, but I know for a fact I hurt ... / Continue →
