    This is a daddy longlegs (aka harvestman) that was trapped in amber with an erect penis. That is not how I want to go at all. Okay, MAYBE the penis part, but definitely not the amber. There's the possibility the arachnid was mating when it got trapped in tree resin and the f... / Continue →

    This is a video of young yo-yo master Hajime Miura performing at the 2015 World Yo-Yo Contest. He does things with two yo-yos I didn't even think were possible. How this performance didn't end in a giant knot is beyond me. I had a yo-yo in middle school but my mom confiscate... / Continue →

    This is a timelapse of a lifesize LEGO BB-8 being built by the folks at Bright Bricks. Me? I am a Dumb Stone. Oh who am I kidding, I'm not even a stone. I'm a rock at best and more than likely just a dried up piece of animal shit somebody might mistake for a rock provided t... / Continue →

    This is a video of Trym Nordgaard demonstrating how to properly drink your morning coffee during a cold Norwegian winter. He really nails it. Plus I like his bathrobe. I used to wear a bathrobe but, well...you know. "Something about your penis." EVERYTHING about my penis. ... / Continue →

    This is a very short video of Jumpy the Border Collie mix signing his own name in blue paint. He doesn't really know how to sign his name though, he just knows how to follow the stick his owner is holding. Although that's still impressive. Maybe if he practices enough he'll ... / Continue →

    Because the Galactic Empire doesn't care if Thanksgiving has passed or not, this is the lifesize TIE fighter light display created by a friend of Imgur user guitarfarts (who presumably sounds like a Nickelback cover band). It is most impressive. I've been brainstorming what k... / Continue →
