    This is a video of the 3-D printed gun that Youtuber Paperfliegerei built that's capable of folding and shooting paper airplanes. It's powered by a cordless drill and can fold and shoot a paper airplane about every three seconds. For reference, that is entirely too slow to br... / Continue →

    This is the silver and amber facehugger brooch designed and crafted by deviantARTist fairyfrog (aka Sarah Burchill). As you can see, she did an amazing job. Way better than the facehugger brooch I made. "That's just one of those cheap plastic Halloween spider rings with the ... / Continue →

    This is Ed, a super realistic face digitally rendered using Lightwave, Sculptris and Krita by Australian artist Chris Jones. I say super realistic, but you can easily tell it's fake because it's just a floating head -- there's no body. Nice try, but that's a dead giveaway, Ch... / Continue →

    This is a video of bike pro Danny Macaskill (who has skill in his name so you know he's got them) riding the mountaintops of Isle of Skye in Scotland. It's a beautiful watch. Plus its set to this sweet ass song that sounds fresh off of a Pure Moods CD. I used to have the ori... / Continue →

    In they sure as hell don't make them like that anymore news, this is an ultra-impressive wooden desk with all sorts of mechanized, moving parts and secret compartments. I LOVE secret compartments. It was built over 200 years ago without the use of any power tools. Probably b... / Continue →

    10-year old George the goldfish is doing swimmingly following a 45-minute procedure to remove a brain tumor (links to whole story with pictures of the whole process). Because apparently that's something that can be done. Next stop: turning the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles bac... / Continue →

    This is Star S'Mores, a five-minute cookie themed Star Wars parody starring the cast of Sesame Street. Watch it with your kids. Don't have any kids? Watch it with a pet. No pets? What about a roommate? You live alone? Hmm, tell you what -- how about you Skype me and we'l... / Continue →

    In case you didn't catch my alma mater Virginia Tech upset Ohio State last weekend, this was the Ohio State Marching Band's television themed halftime show. It's really worth watching. They've got it all: Dragnet, The Simpsons, Addams Family, Batman, M.A.S.H., I Dream Of Geni... / Continue →

    This is a video of a one-legged break dancer going so hard it looks like he's about to break his other leg off. Plus he incorporates his crutches into the routine, with a solid flying dismount around 1:13. It just goes to show you, if you try hard and believe in yourself, not... / Continue →

    This is a portrait-mode video (come on, lady -- you've had that phone for years!) of a teensy little girl somehow managing to hold on to the rotating barrel at the exit of a carnival funhouse and perform a loopty loop. How the hell did she do that? Was she squeezing it with h... / Continue →

    Hot Wheels unveiled this full-size Darth Vader mask inspired car at this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con. The car was built to promote the teensy $40 version they'll be releasing this fall. Damn, $40 for a Hot Wheels car? TIMES HAVE CHANGED. And so have I. Just kidding, I'm ... / Continue →

    To celebrate the upcoming release of Assassin's Creed Unity due out this October, Youtuber Devin Supertramp teamed up with Ubisoft to produce this parkour video inspired by the game (which was shot in 4K so be sure to ramp up the HD). It features four assassins chasing some Fr... / Continue →

    Meet 'Mighty' Kacy Catanzaro. A former cheerleader and the first female to qualify for the final round (Mount Midoriyama) of American Ninja Warrior. This is a video of her semifinal performance. She makes it all seem so effortless. Because, I'm going to be honest, there's n... / Continue →

    This is a video of a Korean taekwondo martial artist successfully kicking four separate stacked targets in the air before landing on his feet. Granted it's not the most solid landing I've ever seen, but it's still better than you or I could do. I imagine I would miss all the ... / Continue →

    This is a video of hula hoopspert Rachael Lust showing off all her hooping tricks and stunts. Clearly she has been practicing. I actually didn't learn to hula hoop until two summers ago. I just tried it one night when I was drunk and finally understood how to do it. Then th... / Continue →

    This is a video of Taiwanese street performer Isaac Hou showing off his Cyr Wheel skills. I kept waiting for him to screw up so I could bet on whether he'd land heads or tails. He never did though. I wish I had ring skills like him. Hell, I'd be happy if I could go more tha... / 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 video of a Chinese street vendor who blows hot sugar into animal shapes. In this case, he makes a dragon for a little boy. I'm not sure if the animals are strictly decorative or if you're supposed to eat them, but who wouldn't want to eat a ball of sugar that's been... / Continue →
