    "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 →

    This is a video showing the making of and display of 'Yonshakudama' fireworks. Each 4-foot shell weighs 420kg (~930-pounds) and costs $1,500. I am going to buy one, and I have every intention of riding it into the night sky. "You will die." I WILL TRAVEL TO NEVER NEVERLAND.... / Continue →

    Note: Hit the audio button in the top left of the video if you like audio. This is a short Vine video from Harley Morenstein (the guy from Epic Mealtime who looks like an alcoholic lumberjack) of a guy wearing a suit covered in Mentos being dunk-tanked into a vat of Coke. It'... / Continue →

    A group of scientists are convinced that if we can dig deep enough into Mars, we'll locate signs of ancient life. And just how do we dig deep enough? By firing missiles! God, please -- PLEASE let me ride one. I want to wear a cowboy hat and be swinging a lasso. In 1976, th... / Continue →

    A terrorist suicide bomb trainer operating out of Iraq accidentally triggered his live explosive vest, killing himself and 21 other would-be bombers. 'So, you find a large crowd kind of like we have assembled here, then you just push this bu--' KABOOM! Presumably everybody in... / 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 →

    This is a shot of the fallout bunker built in 1978 below 3970 Spencer Street in Las Vegas. Above ground is a normal looking two story house. But 26-feet below the home (accessed via hidden elevator or stairs) is a 15,200-square foot basement room containing another full house... / Continue →

    This is a video from Rated RR of beer kegs being exploded with detonating cord. I'm not gonna lie, it was a little hard to watch all that beer get wasted. Speaking of -- somebody should develop an app that connects people at the bar who can't finish their beer with people wh... / Continue →

    This is time-lapse video made by photographer Michael Chung during the August 12th peak of the Perseid meteor shower featuring an exploding meteor. Granted an exploding UFO would have been cooler, but maybe next year. I'm joking, there will be no next year. At least not if I ... / Continue →

    This is a short video from Indiana of a semi truck that was forced off the interstate by a merging car (LEARN HOW TO F***ING DRIVE) and had no other choice but to CATCH SOME SERIOUS AIR AND EXPLODE. Thankfully, nobody was seriously injured or I probably wouldn't be posting thi... / Continue →

    Note: Nobody was killed in the accident so you can watch the fireworks show without feeling bad. These are several videos of a truck in Russia transporting a load of gas canisters when it crashes and all the tanksl explode. I, for one, am never driving near a truck carrying a... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a lady filming a storm out her window when ZIPPITY ZAP, a lightning bolt takes out the power line right in front of her house. Now I'm not saying this lady willed that lightning to happen, but you and I both know she did. Really, who the hell films a ... / Continue →

    Meet 18-year old Fanny Schlatter. Fanny's right leg isn't feeling as beach-ready as it was a week ago because her Samsung Galaxy S3 allegedly exploded and caught fire in her pocket, leaving her with 2nd and 3rd degree burns on her thigh. *tosses cell phone across room* I'm n... / Continue →

    Exploding Actresses is a Tumblr blog that posts animated gifs and videos of actresses in famous movie scenes having their heads explode. It's surprisingly entertaining. My favorites are this Snow White one and the Ghost one, but there's an entire video of Disney Princess afte... / Continue →

    This is a fairly poor quality video of a 3-kilometer bridge in China being demolished with explosives in 20-seconds. Impressive, but I could have done it in half that. Just don't ask me how. "How?" I SAID DON'T ASK. "No but seriously." I blew Zeus. Hit the jump for the v... / Continue →

    I swear this is an internet classic that I saw and posted years ago, but after a search I couldn't find it on the site so here it is anyways (or again). This is a video of a bunch of dudes attaching explosives to the ends of giant hammers and then smacking them on the ground. ... / Continue →

    I've used tons of terrible screencaps on Geekologie, and this one is certainly no exception. I had the choice of either using one of the CD just spinning, or after the explosion, and I chose neither of those and went with a really blurry one from during the ACTUAL explosion. ... / Continue →

    Note: Higher-res version HERE and you can go see a worthwhile animated GIF of the flyby at the source HERE. This is a shot taken aboard the International Space Station in 2009 of the Sarychev Volcano erupting on the Kuril Islands (northeast of Japan -- or possibly from a Zeld... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber Rated RR shooting watermelons with Crysis 3 inspired exploding arrows. He made a couple different versions, one with the explosive in the arrow's tip, and another one that doesn't explode until the arrow has nearly pierced the melon to its fletching... / Continue →
