    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 →

    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 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 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 →

    PROTIP: Not on your lunch break. Seen here looking how I felt after Thanksgiving, a dead sperm whale's stomach explodes as some poor bastard pokes it with a knife. The explosion was caused by the build-up of gases in the stomach after the whale died (of natural causes). Can ... / Continue →
