    This is the $500 Bunyanesque Hammock available from (where else?) Hammacher Schlemmer. It measures 8-feet by 15-feet and can support a whole bunch of kids or up to five 200-pound adults. Apparently it was named after Paul Bunyan because he was a big dude. I'm also a big dude... / Continue →

    This is the footage captured by Alex Figueroa near Florida's Circle B Bar Reserve of a massive alligator eating a smaller alligator while two people stand entirely too close to the whole ordeal. That small gator will never have the opportunity to grow into a massive gator like... / Continue →

    This is a video demonstration of the 556-foot-long yacht transporter Super Servant 4. It can flood the rear of the ship so a bunch of smaller (but still very large) boats can be piloted inside, then pump all the water out for dry transport. I am going to buy one, then I am go... / Continue →

    This is the world's largest Bowie knife, recently constructed by the town of Bowie, Texas to honor Colonel David James Bowie, who died during the Battle Of The Alamo, and for whom the town was named. No word if it's big enough for Crocodile Dundee to consider a real knife. ... / Continue →

    Seen here giving it the business, this is the gigantic functional Rubik's Cube built by puzzle maker Tony Fisher. Tony believes it is the largest functional Rubik's Cube in the world, which it may or may not be because I didn't feel like spending my Monday morning Googling the... / Continue →

    This is the giant wooden Millennium Falcon constructed by woodworker Martin Creaney. Clearly it was a labor of love. Possibly with some lust thrown in for good measure. I always add at least a tablespoon of lust whenever I'm baking things for friends. It gives any recipe th... / Continue →

    A group of mathematicians at the University of Central Missouri have discovered the new largest prime number known to man, a number so large it has 22,338,618 digits. That is a big-ass number. It can be expressed as 2^74,207,281 − 1, and is some five million digits longer tha... / Continue →

    This is a timelapse of LEGO maniac Peter "Cavegod" Brookdale building a custom designed 6,000 piece LEGO AT-AT Walker over the span of 26 hours. For reference, the largest official AT-AT set sold by LEGO is only 1,137 pieces. I think it's amazing how people can design and bui... / Continue →

    This is a video of a Nissan Murano crossover SUV with gigantic 34-inch Amani wheels. It looks like a toy. It's not a toy though, it's a real car and will still hurt if it hits you, even if it does look like a Hot Wheels banged a golf cart. You know I had a friend try to run ... / Continue →

    Police in Sydney, Australia responded to a domestic disturbance call from concerned neighbors only to discover a flushed and out-of-breath man who had been chasing and yelling at a spider. This proves once again why anybody afraid of spiders should never live in Australia. Th... / Continue →

    This is the giant western diamondback rattlesnake that an Arkansas man (who looks suspiciously like one of my uncles) shot and killed after it bit one of his dogs. No word if the dog is okay, but that snake definitely isn't. If I was that guy I would use the snake to make my ... / Continue →

    This is a visual comparison of different sized spaceships (mostly from Halo and Mass Effect, with the Death Star thrown in for good measure) created by Imgurian devocation. Previously: this VERY extensive comparison. My ship? My ship is tiny. "You talking about your penis?"... / Continue →
