    This is A Shout Within a Storm, an installation by artist Glenn Kaino featuring over 100 copper arrows all seeming to be headed towards the same point. That point being, more often than not, somebody making a face and getting their picture taken. I've had dreams of dying in a... / Continue →

    This is the already funded Indiegogo campaign for Pointe Tactical Markers. At first glance they look like regular Sharpies, at second glance you've already been stabbed. The Pointe comes in two styles: the snub-nosed "concealed" version that still looks like a Sharpie even wi... / Continue →

    This is a video from a Lithuanian talent show of some guy who claims his skill is knife throwing, although I suspect his real talent is killing assistants. When attempting to knife giant playing cards out of his assistant's hands, he manages to hit him with the knives both tim... / Continue →

    This is a video of two Japanese thrill-seekers playing a game of Crocodile Dentist in which they've attached a bunch of razor blades to the top of the croc's mouth. Looks like fun. I'm kidding, it looks terrifying. I sliced my thumb open to the bone on a broken glass a coupl... / Continue →

    These are the realistic cacti cupcakes created by baker Alana Jones-Mann. She has a tutorial on her website HERE in case you want to try making some yourself. Granted yours will not look as good, but at least you tried. Here's what I'm going to do: bake some cactus cupcakes ... / Continue →

    These are the reusable plastic zombie toothpicks available from Brazilian design company Meninos. $11 gets you a bag of six green and six gray zombies to poke in your *eyeballing photo* what is that, fried cheese? Fried okra? Fried okra is hands down one of my top five favo... / Continue →

    This is a video of two Roombas with knives taped to them trying to pop each other's balloon a la Mario Kart battle mode. But you're gonna want to skip to at least 2:00 into the video because the first two minutes are just people talking because they don't understand they shoul... / Continue →

    This is the iStab, a 3-D printed iPhone case with a folding knife attached. That way you can accidentally Van Gogh yourself while answering a call. Or you could, I don't know, just carry a far more practical folding knife separately from your phone. That's what I do. It's n... / Continue →

    I was going to post this video last week but then I thought I would tape and upload a video of myself eating three cacti to show the world just how much manlier/stupider I am. Unfortunately, Home Depot didn't have any cacti that were spiky enough to satisfy my ass's lifelong d... / Continue →

    This is a video of Danish archer Lars Anderson demonstrating the ancient archery techniques he's been practicing. The key to a lot of them is holding spare arrows in your hand instead of a quiver. Doing so, Lhars can shoot 10 arrows in 4.9 seconds, shoot 11 arrows before the ... / Continue →

    This is the $150,000 Intimidator from McDermott Handcrafted Cues. It started life as an 82-pound piece of solid stainless steel, and 1,862 man hours later, became...this thing. This thing I wouldn't want to see anybody swinging that in a bar fight. Not unless they're on my s... / Continue →

    Slingshot aficionado and addictive-voiced Joerg Sprave is back at it, this time with a custom made arrowhead that has two little knives that flip out from the point after entering a zombie's skull FOR MAXIMUM CEREBRAL DESTRUCTION. Maybe not as destructive as an arrowhead with ... / Continue →

    This is a video of ballerina Amélie Ségarra destroying a piano by dancing on top of it in knife-toed ballerina shoes. Although it's a lot less what you'd think of as dancing and a lot more what you'd think of as angry stabbing and screaming. I'm no therapist, but I sensed som... / Continue →

    This is a $60 set of Samurai sword kitchen knives designed by Fizz Creations and for sale at Gizoo. You get a chef's knife, bread knife, utility knife and paring knife, each in its own saya (scabbard). *drawing sword* DiGiorno pizza -- you burnt the roof of my mouth and sull... / Continue →

    This is a video of Tony Swatton (who's been blacksmithing for over 30 years and created the weapons for over 200 feature films) constructing his own pair of Wolverine claws. They turn out pretty legit looking, it's just a shame the guy who gets to test them out at the end seem... / Continue →

    This is a series of animal sculptures created by Polish artist Marta Klonowska using pieces of shattered glass. I bet her hands look like she ran them through a paper shredder. Almost all of her sculptures are based on animals found in baroque and romantic paintings by such... / Continue →

    This is the 8.8 Million Volt Shock Mod Ninja Sword built by Youtuber GreekGadgetGuru (who has a bunch of other videos of terrifying weapons he's made like an Assassin's Creed poison dart shooter, taser gloves, ballistic knives, and an arm-mounted crossbow). It's basically two ... / Continue →

    These are some officially licensed Batman TWIN BLADE folding knives. My God, Wayne Enterprises has gone downhill. They cost about $9 and come in different colors so you can accessorize any outfit. "But why do they have two blades?" To hurt yourself, silly! Thanks to car... / Continue →

    This is a pair of $20 plastic Wolverine claw toys. They're pretty cheesewhizzy, but I still want them. I've been looking for something that says, "Don't mess with me" when I'm out jogging at night. Apparently the fanny-pack isn't cutting it. "And you feel like something ... / Continue →

    JESUS, STOP CUTTING YOUR THUMBNAIL SO SHORT. This is the Guillotine Ring (aka The Divorce) from Vagabond Jewelry. You have to constantly hold its little chain in your hand because if you let go it'll cut your finger off. No, no it won't. You will bleed though. And bleeding... / Continue →
