    These are some pictures and a video from Sports Illustrated of Kate Upton modeling two $20 Target bikinis in nearly zero gravity aboard a vomit comet. I think we can all agree that, at least from a purely scientific standpoint, they provide significant insight about how big ol... / Continue →

    This is one of the $13,000 bar stools made by Hanger 54 from the Martin Baker Mk10 ejector seat from a decommissioned RAF Panavia Tornado. I would drink in that. I would drink in that AND perform constant barrel rolls (technically just 360's). I love playing fighter pilots a... / Continue →

    This is a video created by Hungarian animation firm Delov Digital featuring Chuck Norris one-upping Jean Claude Van Damme's Volvo leg-split commercial. It's not real though, it's all CG -- including Chuck. Still, I bet you show it to your mom and convince her it's real. "If ... / Continue →

    These are the radio controlled witch and wizard planes designed by R/C enthusiast Otto Dieffenback. You can buy a kit of either one for $150, but all the electronics you have to provide yourself. I'm going to make enough of them to form my own Quidditch team. How many is th... / Continue →

    Virgin Atlantic is going to start adding live comedy and music to some of its domestic UK flights, because who really wants to sleep on a plane anyways? Except me, I want to sleep on the plane. I like to get just drunk enough at the airport to board my flight, pass out, then ... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a solider getting sucked out of the back of an airplane/helicopter after his reserve chute catches the wind. One second he's there, the next he's gone. Kind of like my online dating dates when we finally meet at a restaurant. *looking around* Was it... / Continue →

    Flying: it's terrifying because you're completely out of control. Even of your personal climate. Too cold? Too bad, you should have brought a jacket. Enter researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics, who are trying to apply the same climate controlled sea... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy playing Battlefield 3 when he ejects out of his plane, rocket-launches an enemy jet, then gets back in his and flies off. "So just like the title said?" EXACTLY like the title said, except set to the A-Team theme song. You think anybody could actually... / Continue →

    Picture related...enough. A 50-year old Croatian man has been arrested after seeking medical help to remove a live 11-cm anti-aircraft shell from his butt after getting it stuck up there during a sex game. The deadliest sex game. You...have been hanging out with a bad crowd.... / Continue →

    In other Japanese news, the country may be giving away 10,000 round-trip tickets to help boost tourism after a plummet resulting from the recent tsunami. AND THEY'RE GONNA GIVE THEM AWAY TO BLOGGERS. I am like, sooooooooo in. *puts on Harajuku costume, practices peace sign i... / Continue →

The European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company (EADS), which owns Airbus, claims they could have a Mach-4 traveling airplane in the skies by 2050 that could fly passengers around the globe at over 3,000MPH while shitting their pants like babies. The plane - nam... / Continue →

    Is this the future of airport security screening? I dunno, but I'd hate to be in the terrorist line! "Um, honey -- we've got like twenty yellow-liners on our flight." Instead of a single screening procedure applied to all fliers, the group envisions that passengers would b... / Continue →

    Raytheon provided a public showing of their Laser Close-In Weapon System (CIWS) at the recent Farnborough Airshow, demonstrating just how the blaster can be used to shoot robotic death-planes out of the sky by turning an unmanned drone into an unmanned drone crashing into the o... / Continue →

    I'm not even gonna lie: I've never made love on an airplane. Something about trying to get it on in the tiny bathroom an overweight businessman just spent twenty minutes vacating the fast food from his bowels in makes my penis want to shrivel up and hide in an overhead bin. B... / Continue →

    I know what you're thinking, "big deal, I eject myself all the time", but you're thinking of something different. You see, this guy accidentally ejected himself from a plane mid-flight. WHEEEEEEEEEEEE!! The South African air force has confirmed the incident that took place ... / Continue →

    This is a screenshot from the National Air Traffic Controllers Association (an organization that knows how to party) real-time map of flights over North America. Except it's not actually real-time, it's delayed 5 minutes. Of course, judging from the 2005 copyright in the lowe... / Continue →

    This is a time lapse video of a F/A-18 Super Hornet jet being built. And let me just say, wow, that thing must have over 100 different pieces. Making it nearly twice as complicated as the hardest LEGO set I've built. Constructing A Super Hornet: "A time lapse of the construc... / Continue →

    Thanks everybody for all the birthday wishes yesterday. That was awesome, and I love you all. But today's another day, and...wait a minute -- it's International Left Handers Day! Another day of celebration for me! Shake left-handed, eat and drink left-handed, or give yours... / Continue →

    The last time I tried to fly I woke up on the floor beside the bed. And the time before that airport security confiscated my juice box. Needless to say my hair was unkempt. So how can you get some shampoo on your next flight without a hassle? Simple -- Paper Shampoo. Pape... / Continue →
