    PROTIP: Loud, keep your speakers in check. Mixing sodium and water causes a violent chemical reaction (my favorite kind). So what happens when you try to skip a pound disk of sodium across a river? EXPLOSIVE MAGIC. Like a wizard with diarrhea. The sodium disk doesn't re... / Continue →

    This is a short video of crazy experimenter The Backyard Scientist (I do all my science in the garage away from prying drone cameras) pouring molten salt into a water filled aquarium. I did not know molten salt was even a thing, but apparently it becomes a thing when salt is h... / Continue →

    This is a short video of two dudes on a dock in South Sydney, Australia when they almost getting struck by lightning. They are just feet away. That must have been scary, although personally I've always wanted to get struck by lightning because that would be a solid story to t... / Continue →

    This is a video of a garbage truck exploding in (where else?) New Jersey. Apparently the truck finally exploded after the fire reached one of the vehicle's natural gas tanks, which shot off "like a missile" according to local police captain James Stevens. Thankfully, nobody w... / Continue →

    A man in Schoeppingen, Germany, has died after he and two associates tries to rob a condom vending machine by blowing it up with explosives. I'm going to be honest, I thought robbing condom vending machines was a one-man job. Apparently he was hit in the head by a piece of de... / Continue →

    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 →
