    This is a short video of ice boulders washing up in Glen Arbor on Lake Michigan. When reached for comment, the Ice Witch had this to say, "Want to rub my nipples?" Nice try lady, but you're not turning me into an ice sculpture. The giant ice balls form in just-below-freezin... / Continue →

    This is a video of a group of Siberian percussionists playing music on frozen ice sheets in Lake Baikal in -20°C (-4°F) temperatures. I didn't even know sound could travel attemperatures that cold. "You're an idiot." It's true, I'm not that smart. But I was smart enough to ... / Continue →

    This is a video of some ingenious Ruskies fishing a Honda SUV out of a frozen lake. How did it get there in the first place? My guess is vodka. The car's owner says even after its little swim the car still drives. Drives, and has to smell like shit. Keep going to find out ... / Continue →

    If the internet were that lake, it would be empty except for a handful of rotting fish carcasses. This is a shot of a rainbow reflected in a lake taken by Jennifer Hannux of Northeast Kingdom Photography that makes it appear to be a full circle. When reached for comment, Doub... / Continue →

    This is a video of some guy shooting tracer bullets across the surface of a lake and watching them skip like stones. It's really pretty. So pretty I'm going to do it every night from now on instead of watching the sun set. You hear that, sun? You're old news! "Then maybe I... / Continue →

    Because everybody has to die somehow (so why not make it on your own terms?) this is a video of a bunch of hooligans using a bungee cord attached to a boat to pull them down a hill and over a ramp into a lake while riding an inner-tube. It actually looks pretty fun. Well, min... / Continue →

    These are Jetovators. Jetovators are like the water-jetpacks we've seen in the past, except you ride them like a motorcycle. You know, because some guys like to feel that power between their legs. Personally, I'm happy with the feeling of my penis ping-ponging back and forth... / Continue →

    Lake Vostok, the pristine lake hidden under two and a half miles of Antarctic glacier for almost 20-million years, has finally been reached by the drill of Russian scientists. They hope to develop a better understanding of the earth 20-million years ago, but will probably only... / Continue →

    The Flyboard from Zapata Racing is basically a water powered jetpack similar to this one that this guy used to almost eat a dock, except for your feet. So, in summary, exact same thing but strapped to your feet. I guess it's all a matter of personal taste, are you more of a j... / Continue →

    This is the Sealander, a camping trailer small enough to be towed behind a regular-sized car that, when backed into the water, turns into a lil boat. No word if it has a glass bottom so you can watch mermaids making love in the seaweed below, but probably not considering MERMA... / Continue →

    This $17,000 'Skier Controlled Tow Boat' from Hammacher Schlemmer may look like a Jet-Ski, but it's actually a full-size boat that's been shrunk with a shrink-ray. SIKE -- THIS AIN'T NO GOOFY-ASS RICK MORANIS SHIT, THIS IS REAL F***ING LIFE! (Read: it's a modified Jet-Ski) ... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE for the full theatrical effect. This is a picture of the set being erected in Austria's Lake Constance for a summer run of Italian composer Umberto Giordano's opera 'Andre Chenier'. As you can see, the entire piece takes place on an eyeless giant's f... / Continue →

    Ever wanted a clear canoe or kayak so you can see what's going down in the water below you? Personally I've always been too scared, especially if it has anything to do with sharks. Still, when I was a kid I did throw fish-food on the floor of a glass-bottom boat, so there's t... / Continue →

    The $200,000 WaterCar is the lovechild of a Corvette that fell in love with a cigarette boat. But, like having sex with a mermaid, everyone will tell you it was just a manatee. Get a Corvette engine, rig it up with a Dominator Jet drive, and then strap it into a floating car,... / Continue →

    I want one. Yesterday. Ooh, and a firetruck to power it. That way when I have children I can tell them, "Children, in the golden age before you were born daddy used to ride a water-powered jetpack to the liquor store. Now he drives a minivan. Someday you will understand th... / Continue →

    Like the saying goes, "when the going gets tough, the tough build a giant freaking guitar boat and cruise around in that mother like PUT PUT PUT". Am I right? I'm wrong. Anyway, this is Indie rocker Josh Pyke taking a fully functional guitar boat for a spin in the music vide... / Continue →

    So apparently there are lakes of super-saline water at the bottom of the ocean. During the Jurassic period the waters here were shallow and became cut off from the ocean. The area soon dried out, leaving a thick layer of salt and other minerals up to 8km thick. When ocean wate... / Continue →

    I dunno, it kind of looks like a rectangle humping a tapeworm. A group of filmmakers claim to have successfully captured Sweden's legendary Great Lake Sea Monster (Storsjöodjuret), which is said to lurk in the waters of the Storsjön outside Östersund in northern Sweden. "... / Continue →

    If you live in Germany you can rent an AirKick for an undisclosed amount of bratwurst. The human catapult (not to be confused with a human trebuchet) is capable of launching thrill-seekers 26 feet to a watery landing. The participant sits in a specially constructed seat at ... / Continue →
