    Spectre, the newest James Bond film, was awarded the Guinness World Record for largest explosion in a film, thanks to this doozy shot in Morocco. I wish I could have been there to smell it. The explosion used 33kg (~72-pounds) of explosives to ignite some 8,418 liters (~2,224... / Continue →

    Because boredom is the mother of invention, this is a video of a car's airbag being deployed inside a microwave. That microwave never stood a chance. Also, can you imagine the other horrors that poor washing machine has seen? It's probably an appliance graveyard back there. ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a group of guys using an airbag removed from a car to launch a tire. No word whose car that airbag belonged to, but they're probably not alive to complain anyways. The experiment can only be described as a huge success, and ends spectacularly. A real treat... / Continue →

    This is a video of rocket propelled grenades blowing through layer after layer of bulletproof glass. There is no stopping them. So if you were thinking about bringing bulletproof glass to an RPG fight, I would reconsider. I'm also reconsidering giving my elderly apartment ne... / Continue →

    This is a ten minute video of the US and South Korea practicing their war maneuvers with live missiles and bombs. Probably to send to North Korea to let them know they need to calm down. Never a country to be upstaged, North Korea presumably made their own live weapon demonst... / Continue →

    This is a video from Japanese fruit and vegetable producer Kagome of a group of scientists (or people dressed to look like scientists) using underwater shockwaves to pulverize the insides of fruits and vegetables while keeping the exterior intact. It was interesting to watch. ... / Continue →

    This is a short video of 3rd Marine Logistics Group, 9th Engineer Support Battalion demonstrating how to breach a concrete wall using explosives. They protect themselves with a ballistic blanket, which looks like a scrap of carpet but I'm assuming is not. Would you be the bla... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber bra1Nphuk (I see what you did there) launching an overturned wheelbarrow almost fifty feet with the help of a Cobra 6 firecracker, which packs 48.5-grams of explosive powder (versus 2-3 grams for an M-80). The landing is most spectacular. If I were... / Continue →

    This is a video from the dashcam of Gautier, Mississippi police sergeant Mark Rodriguez's cruiser when lightning strikes right in front of him. It got pretty bright there for a second. No word if sergeant Rodriquez tried to apprehend the lightning after the incident. Serious... / Continue →

    This is a video from very amateur madman TheBackyardScientist showing you how to make your own propane rifle. It's pretty simple. So simple you could easily do it in your garage after school with zero adult supervision. Not that I'm encouraging that, because I'm not. As muc... / Continue →

    Heck yeah, no helmet or seat belt! Helmets and seat belts are for sissies who have never dreamed the dream of living a life in bed eating out of a tube. This is a video of Colin Furze (previously: his 50MPH baby carriage, Wolverine claws, Pyro flamethrowers and Magneto boot... / Continue →

    Because Florida can't have all the fun, a Long Island man is being treated for first and second degree burns after blowing up his rental car trying to kill alleged bed bugs. Two other vehicles were also destroyed in the fire. Scott Kemery apparently doused the interior of the... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Guinness World Record stick bomb, consisting of 30,849 sticks exploding in 30 seconds. That is a lot of sticks. No wonder stick prices are through the roof right now, these people bought them all. Now what am I supposed to glue to the outside of an emp... / Continue →

    This is a video from Slow Mo Lab of a firecracker exploding in the middle of a rubber band ball, filmed at 25,000 frames per second. For reference, that's 25,000 times faster than one frame per second, which is about how long the exposure took the last time I used a pinhole c... / Continue →

    Ship Your Enemies Glitter is an anonymous $10 (Australian, ~$8 US) service that sends the enemy of your choice (anywhere in the world) an envelope that will launch glitter everywhere when opened. Sure you could send the same thing yourself for cheaper, but that might be TRACEA... / Continue →

    This is a short video from Ukraine of a 16-story building being demolished. Except it doesn't actually get demolished, it just adopts a serious gangsta lean. Obviously, of all the places you'd expect to see a building demolition go wrong, it's Ukraine or Russia. I'm still no... / Continue →

    This is a video of Jack the stupid idiot microwaving a glowstick and it exploding in his face and eyeballs. Then he cries like a baby and calls his dad in to help, who yells at him (and is pissed Jack decided to do this in such a beautiful shirt) and calls him a dingaling. Th... / Continue →

    This is a video of the new Guinness World Record for largest firework (previously: these ones). The behemoth at 3:25 in the video measures 4-feet in diameter and weighs 465kg (~1,024-lbs). That's over half a ton, and definitely powerful enough to support the weight of a grown... / Continue →

    "Hooooooly smokin' Toledos." This is the video shot by Philip McNamara off the cost of Papua New Guinea of Mount Tavurvu erupting with a shockwave that sends all the nearby clouds running for cover. God, what I would have given to have been sitting on top of that thing when i... / Continue →

    This is the video resulting from Jos Stiglingh flying a drone with a GoPro attached through a West Palm Beach fireworks display. It's inspired me to rent a hot air balloon and watch the local fireworks display from the sky next year. "They will never let you do that." I don'... / Continue →
