    This is a video of stunt biker Robbie Maddison riding a specially modified dirt bike to surf the waves of Teahupoo and Papara in Tahiti. Did the size of his balls scare all the sharks away? Probably. Also I'm pretty sure the COMBINING of extreme sports is going to be the FUT... / Continue →

    This is a video from the Crazy Russian Hacker demonstrating what happens when you stick coins in a block of dry ice. What happens? They shiver. WHY do they shiver? BECAUSE THEY'RE COLD, WHY ELSE WOULD THEY. Just kidding, because science. Or is it magic? Allegedly it's sci... / Continue →

    This is the miniature samurai armor made by Japanese artist Yoneji Inamura entirely out of dead bugs. That is a lot of bugs. I wonder where he got all those bugs. You think he collected them himself? There are some bugs on my porch if you're interested. Do you need any rol... / Continue →
