    This is the Kickball Ice Cream Maker available from Hammacher Schlemmer ($35). It's like the spherical plastic ice cream makers that have existed forever, except softer and kickable. Just like the head of an enemy. I'm going to kick it so f***Ing hard the ice cream compartme... / Continue →

    This is a video of a Korean taekwondo martial artist successfully kicking four separate stacked targets in the air before landing on his feet. Granted it's not the most solid landing I've ever seen, but it's still better than you or I could do. I imagine I would miss all the ... / Continue →

    In arguably the only respectable use of robotics, 29-year old paraplegic Juliano Pinto used a full-body robotic suit to kick the first kick at the opening ceremonies of the World Cup yesterday. The exoskeletal suit is mind-controlled, so you think, "left foot step", and the le... / Continue →

    This is a video of some jackass trying to take a video of himself right in front of a train as it passes. Thankfully, the conductor, who clearly identified this little nobgoblin from a mile away, boots him in the face. Some people are speculating it's fake, which I don't thin... / Continue →

    These are two different styles of Marvel combat boots available from Wet Seal ($40 and $45). I'm not a big fan of the hodge-podge design, but that's just me and they don't make them in a men's 12 so they're out of the question anyways. Remember the old insult, "Your momma wea... / Continue →

    Because there are a ton of people in the world that wish they had the strength and dexterity of a ninja but would make far better crash test dummies, this is a compilation video of martial arts fails. Mostly accidental head kicks, failing to break boards, and falling trying to... / Continue →

    This is a $30 Death Star Soccer Ball available from ThinkGeek (originally only available at the Star Wars Celebration in Europe). Of course, most of the world probably recognizes it as a Death Star football. The US just calls football soccer because, like the metric system, w... / Continue →

    This is a three minute video of Spiderman doing flips and cartwheels and jumpkicking the shit out of that practice dummy. He's got some pretty sweet moves. It just goes to show you that even with superpowers, it's still important to train. You think Wolverine doesn't still h... / Continue →

    Because people are SICK and TWISTED, here's a pair of shoes that have 1,050 denture teeth embedded in the soles. Can you imagine the sound they must make walking on pavement? Not a good one. That said, I just made a pair with teeth I stole from the dentist because the hygien... / Continue →

    Your fruit killed my family! This is a video of a guy kicking down a banana tree. "I could do an oak." Ha, just because your mom used to tell you that you could do anything you put your mind to? WELL SHE LIED. There's actually very little you can do, and even less you can ... / Continue →

    This is an old-ass video of a robotic goalkeeper named Ball-Lover Robokeeper that's programmed to track an orange soccer ball and never miss a save (unless you shoot in a top corner). Now I'm not saying I know for a fact I could easily get one past him, but I AM saying I know ... / Continue →
