    Thanks to the well preserved specimen found last summer, Russian scientists now claim they have enough viable woolly mammoth DNA to clone one of the beasts. Obviously, I will be the first person to ride it. And probably the last. Watch us jump this volcano! "The data we are... / Continue →

    In much more exciting fire news, these are two videos of amateur Russian stuntman Alexander Chernikov being set on fire and leaping off the roof of a five-story apartment complex into a snow bank. Which, for the record, there's actually no such thing as amateur stuntmen, only... / Continue →

    Russians: they'll try anything. Sometimes it works out, other times they die. At least they tried though. This is a video of two Ruskies roping their car to the back of a city bus to try to get the vehicle started. The car does not get started. But they do chase behind it ... / Continue →

    This is some Russian dashcam footage of a woman (at least the video says it's a woman) who loses control of her little egg car and miraculously (and unintentionally) parallel parks it backwards after barely avoiding accidents in three lanes of traffic. I think we can all agree... / Continue →

    This is some dash-cam footage from Russia (where else?) of a guy in a Toyota Camry constantly trying to get in front of and stop another Ruskie in a Nissan MPV, presumably to stab him with the the knife he has. He finally gets the guy to swerve off the road into a ditch, then ... / Continue →

    This is the third snow-related post in a row. That must be some sort of Geekologie record. One that will definitely won't be going down in the history books and probably won't be remembered by a single person after tomorrow. God willing, I'll drink it out of my memory before... / Continue →

    Seen here with faces no amount of snails can cure, two women experience a new "medical-cosmetic massage" in Krasnoyarsk, Russia. Basically they let giant African land snails roam around on their faces (previously: Japan's little snail facials). I'll, uh, I'll just stick to ex... / Continue →

    This is a video from Russia of some kid repeatedly going over the top bar on a swingset. The swingset has stiff metal handbars instead of chains though, which I assume make it a lot easier. Plus it's tiny. Basically I'm saying anybody with big enough balls could do it. You ... / Continue →

    Warning: The shots below the article are a little graphic (think the beginning of Bambi but with way more deer staring into your soul) depending on how you feel about the darker side of the circle of life. These are shots captured by a remote motion-detecting camera trap in ... / Continue →

    Note: No screencap is going to do this beast-ninja justice, just watch the video. This is a video from Russia of a cook whipping up what appear to be some sort of shawarma wrap, all set to the Mortal Kombat theme (which is actually playing in the restaurant/roller skating rink... / Continue →

    I see butts! As even more proof that most Russians don't give a f***, this is a video of a giant Russian military Zubr class hovercraft coming ashore while a bunch of beach-goers just sit and watch instead of running and screaming HOLY SHIT WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE like any non-Rus... / Continue →

    Note: Nobody was killed in the accident so you can watch the fireworks show without feeling bad. These are several videos of a truck in Russia transporting a load of gas canisters when it crashes and all the tanksl explode. I, for one, am never driving near a truck carrying a... / Continue →

    An unmanned Russian Proton-M heavy rocket carrying three GPS related satellites exploded shortly after launch this morning and crashed in a giant ball of hellfire nearby. The whole thing was caught on a live Russian news feed (video after the jump), where things seemed to go s... / Continue →

    In these trying times we live in, I know it can be hard to imagine any hope for humanity that doesn't involve blasting off into space and just starting over. But to remind us all the world isn't doomed just yet, here's a compilation video of positive, inspirational videos caug... / Continue →

    This is a video of a 110kV (110,000-volt) power line in (where else?) Russia performing a very moving lightning dance after short circuiting. Now I'll be the first to admit I don't know anything about electricity except it's terrifying and I've electrocuted myself four times, ... / Continue →

    Note: Video is graphic blood-wise and song does have dirty words, so make sure to call everybody in your office over and watch at full volume. This is a film short/music video directed by Ilya Naishuller for the Biting Elbows song 'Bad Motherf***er'. It's the second point-o... / Continue →

    Note: It wasn't actually Google Maps, it's the Russian equivalent called Yandex Maps. I just said Google Maps in the title because because if I'd said Yandex you'd be all, 'Dammit, the GW's been drinking again' (which I have but I'm trying to play it off). A woman in Russia r... / Continue →

    This is allegedly a real video recorded by some Ruskie's car cameras from when that meteor tried to decimate the world's vodka supply earlier this month. It's only ten seconds, so just watch it. I'm convinced dude was either already on his way to kill himself or just hadn't ha... / Continue →

    I generally avoid participating in any sort of Gangnam/Harlem shake style memes because they're usually only mediocre to begin with and start beating a dead horse fast, but this is different. It's a compilation video of Russian troops singing and marching to the SpongeBob Squa... / Continue →

    In apocalyptic news, a meteor exploded above Russia this morning, injuring hundreds, and sending at least one blogger thousands of miles away into the makeshift survival bunker he built in the hallway closet. I'm not gonna lie, there's little more than coats and a vacuum clea... / Continue →
