    A new world record for the longest man-made reverberating echo has destroyed the previous record holder by a staggering 97-seconds. For reference, that would be like confidently entering the world's largest penis competition and having yours hang to your knees, while the next ... / Continue →

    I actually just stumbled across this monster while doing research for rideable cats for my last post. I do research! Granted it never shows, but sometimes I will Google something if it tickles my fancy. And rideable cat mounts definitely tickle my fancy. You? You try tickl... / Continue →

    This is a video of Ahmed "Iron Monkey" Kerigo performing a 4.5-foot flying push up. For a while there I didn't think he was going to make it. I know I wouldn't have. I would have gone face down, probably cracked some ribs, maybe lost a couple teeth. Definitely wouldn't have... / Continue →

    This is a short video of French bicyclist François Gissy setting a new world record by hitting 263km/h (~163mph) on a hydrogen peroxide powered rocket bike. That seems dangerous. I've probably hit 25mph on my bike before and I felt like my face was going to melt off. Then I ... / Continue →

    Scientists analyzing a two-mile deep mine in Ontario, Canada have discovered what is currently the oldest water known to date, at 2.6-billion years old. "Pfft, that's nothing." METHUSELAH YOU STAY OUT OF THIS. The scientists analyzed water they found 2 miles (2.4 km) deep. T... / Continue →

    This is a video of 30 skiers (although I only counted 25) holding hands and doing a simultaneous backflip. Everybody lands it too. If I'd been participating I would have purposefully fallen and dragged everyone else down with me BECAUSE I'M A JERK. Just kidding, because I ca... / Continue →

    This is a video from reader Beau in his record-breaking attempt to customize the most expensive Starbucks coffee drink (previously it was this $26.30 one set by another reader. Also, why is this a Geekologie trend? I didn't sign up for this) . The 52-ounce (which, for the re... / Continue →

    Note: This is just a picture, and there's a video tour after the jump but the link to the actual interactive panorama is HERE. Photographer Gerald Donovan went and created a 360-degree panorama from atop the Burj Khalifa, the world's currently tallest building. No single pict... / Continue →

    This is a chart depicting the distances we've traveled on worlds that aren't earth. SOMEHOW the Soviets still hold the top spot for longest distance traveled with a single vehicle. Granted it was an unmanned vehicle, but still, I'm a little disappointed in NASA. Me: *makin... / Continue →

    This is a short video tour of the world's shortest escalator, located in Kawasaki, Japan. The escalator has a vertical rise of only 83-centimeres (~33-inches) and should have probably been a ramp instead. This video already has 5-million views on Youtube though, so I'm not go... / Continue →
