    This is a video of some diver who straps a Go-Pro to a hammerhead shark's fin to capture a first person point of view from the shark's back. How do you attach a Go-Pro to the back of a hammerhead shark? VERY CAREFULLY. Just kidding, this guy goes at it with reckless abandon ... / Continue →

    This is a video from Applied Science of a record playing under an electron microscope. Mesmerizing, isn't it? That isn't what I thought happened at all. I expected to see way more tiny wizards waving their little wands around down there making magic happen. That's not how v... / Continue →

    This is a video of juggler and ring illusionist Lindzee Poi (previously HERE and HERE) performing a series of trippy ring illusions in somebody's beautiful backyard (I love wisteria vines!), complete with EMOTIONAL SOUNDTRACK. I really liked that song. It almost made me cry. ... / Continue →

    Because paisley rims. This isn't a new video, so you may have already seen it. But if you haven't, you're in for a treat. And not some shitty Rice Krispie Treat either, a REAL treat. Like a banana split made with all your favorite ice creams and toppings and bananas with NO... / Continue →

    This is a video of performance artist Lindzee Poi (of eye-melting ring illusion fame) swinging two poi around. Obviously, he would be your best friend at a rave. But probably make a lousy roommate. Dammit Lindzee, what did I tell you about swinging those things around inside... / Continue →

    Note: Probably shouldn't watch if you're epileptic. This is is a video that, if you watch and follow the instructions (full screen and HD recommended), will make your vision all wavy for a few seconds after you look away at the end. Did anybody else notice the letters they ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Italian police officers performing a synchronized motorcycle routine in Rome in the 1950's. They do a great job. Way better than the guy who was trying to split lanes when I was waiting at a stop light the other day. It's cool bro, I didn't even like that ... / Continue →

    This is a video of John Hickey's Pontiac Gran Am. Specifically, one of the air vents that goes nuts when you put the A/C on full blast. It's pretty mesmerizing. The sort of thing you could really get lost watching before realizing you're driving on the sidewalk. That said, ... / Continue →
