    That is not a lawn. This is Honda's Mean Mower, the new world record holder for fastest lawnmower, at 116.57MPH. For reference, that is entirely too fast to be cutting the grass. You would be through your backyard fence and in your neighbor's pool faster than you can say, "H... / Continue →

    This is an informative video about the largest creatures to ever live on earth, by type (ie. largest arthropod, largest land mammal -- both seen above, largest flying creature, etc.). Did you know the largest arthropod was an 2.5 meter (8.5-foot) millipede-looking beast that w... / Continue →

    This is a limited edition (of 500, available through Amazon) heart shaped Beatles record featuring 'Love me Do' on side A and 'P.S. I Love You' on side B. Will the uneven shape through off the balance of your turntable and destroy it? I doubt it. Of course I don't know a lot... / Continue →

    This is Papa Mau, a wave-powered robotic boat that managed to autonomously navigate its way 9,000 miles from San Francisco to Australia over the course of the last year instead of being eaten by a shark like I begged King Neptune to make happen. IT'S SUSHI NIGHT TONIGHT, NEPTU... / Continue →

    And Vinyly is a company that will produce a limited edition run of vinyl records (containing your ashes) after you die for your friends and family to remember you by, hopefully forcing that last thing they remembered you by out of their heads (the time you farted real loud at a... / Continue →

    This is an R2-D2 inspired Technics 1200 turntable. It was a collaboration between Tex Nasty at Remix Turntable Lab and Full Blown Kustoms. Me? I like my kustoms only half blown. Honestly, of all the stupid change George Lucas made to the original movies I'm surprised he did... / Continue →

    This is a mesmerizing video of an arm attached to two record players drawing. What's it drawing? 'DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE' over and over. Just kidding, it looks like a worm-hole or something. And speaking of worm holes: one time I got a worm to eat a piece of string and then wh... / Continue →

    This is a video of an industrial robot arm that's been programmed to scratch records. He...isn't very good. Plus he doesn't even realize there isn't another record playing until 1:40 so it's literally JUST scratching until then and made me want to blow my own brains out. And... / Continue →

    Because there should be a record player for every budget and the $19,000, $64,000 and $300,000 price-points were already covered, here's a $150,000 option. HAHA, recession. The Onedof One Degree Of Freedom turntable was designed by NASA award winning aerospace engineer Alek... / Continue →

    This is Frank & Louie (presumably after Frank & Stein), a 12-year old cat born with two faces and mouths, and three eyes. He just made it into the Guinness Book of World Records for being the longest-lived Janus cat (named after the Roman god of transitions because of the two ... / Continue →

    Convinced your cat is musically inclined? You're f***ing crazy. Regardless, you should still buy it a $23 Cat Scratch Turntable from SUCK UK, if only to provide me with some new Youtube content to watch. OMG, you've got to see this -- this cat thinks it's a DJ! *screaming a... / Continue →

    Red Bull sponsored Felix Baumgartner is going to freefall from at least 120,000 feet and attempt to break a bunch of records, including, but not limited to: being the first person to break the sound barrier with just his body. You're gonna implode, bro! This is a mission to o... / Continue →

    Remember Swiss rocketeer Yves Rossy, the self proclaimed 'Rocket Man' (formally 'Fusion Man')? Well he may lose his title after stealing a move from Amelia Earhart's playbook and crash landing at sea in an attempt to fly from Morocco to Spain. Geez, way to fail to inspire. O... / Continue →

    Proving beyond a shadow of a doubt you can score a Guinness World Record for absolutely anything, a group of 2,510 students in Swansea, UK donned Smurf costumes and became "the largest gathering of people dressed as Smurfs". Wow, that's a whole lot of blue penises. The record... / Continue →

    So this is the first look at the DJ Hero turntable peripheral. As you can see, they make it look like a turntable, but with buttons (and sadly no knobs). Three of them. Let's see, there's a, um, purple one, a yellow one and a....and a....*sniffle* I never learned my colors! ... / Continue →

    Ever wanted to see some asshat set the world record for number of rotations completed (141) while hanging from a power drill mounted to the ceiling? Me neither. But I did watch it, and now it's your turn. And, if you just so happens you're one of those people that can't watc... / Continue →

    Goes to Sega's The House of the Dead: Overkill for the Wii, with over 189 f-bombs dropped throughout the game. This knowledge comes to us from the ever diligent Guiness World Book of Records, who have apparently started recording the number of bad words in video games in addit... / Continue →

    Remember the story earlier in the week about the girl that sent 14,528 text messages in a month? Well, it turns out she's not the only daughter I'd lock in the basement. Emilee Cox, a 14 year old from Clermont, Florida, sent and received 35,463 texts in a single month. Which... / Continue →

    Reina Hardesty, 13, sent 14,528 text messages last month alone. That's a lot. I wonder if she has carpal tunnel. Or really swollen thumbs. The online AT&T statement ran 440 pages. "First, I laughed. I thought, 'That's insane, that's impossible,' " the 45-year-old dad sa... / Continue →
