    The Shelfpack is a $350 suitcase with integrated shelves inside that pull out so you never really have to unpack on vacation. You just pack your clothes on the various shelves at home, zip up the bag, then when you get wherever you're going you pull the shelves out, and, prest... / Continue →

    In hopes that bottle caps are an acceptable form of currency even in a non post-apocalyptic world, Imgurian GatorMacheteJr (GatorMacheteSr had a kid?!) sent 2,240 bottle caps to Bethesda in an attempt to procure a copy of Fallout 4. Obviously, this is kind of annoying because ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a portly drunk man swatting a $1,350 DJI Phantom 3 quadrocopter out of the sky and breaking its 4K camera and three of its props. Apparently the man, who is a neighbor of the folks filming, told them if he flew it over his house he was going to be pissed off... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a clever octopus carrying a coconut that it can hide in should it ever feel threatened (previously: this much longer video from 2009 that shows an octopus fully enclosing itself in a coconut). Pretty clever, octopuses. But do you know what I would wan... / Continue →

    The Swineapple is the brainchild of culinary genius Joshua Bush and consists of a hollowed out pineapple stuffed with boneless pork ribs. I suppose you could use any kind of meat, but pork and pineapple go together like peanut butter and jelly except way less likely for me to ... / Continue →

    This is a video of ocean life photographer Timothy Ewing taking pictures of a red octopus while the octopus checks him out. Whenever Timothy starts to disappear behind the rock, the octopus's curiosity gets the best of it and it raises itself to see where he went. Octopuses r... / Continue →

    A street artist going by the name Wanksy started spraypainting problematic potholes in Manchester, England with crude penises, and the majority were repaired within 48 hours, and even more within the week. That is how you GET THINGS DONE. Wanksy says the inspiration for his r... / Continue →

    This is a video of a hungry fox in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone in Ukraine making itself a sandwich by stacking the slices of bread and sausage tossed to it by a news crew. For reference, my roommate still can't make a sandwich, or eat one without biting his own fingers. I wo... / Continue →

    This is a shot of Neil DeGrasse Tyson circa 1980, when he was around 22 (he was on the crew and wrestling teams at Harvard). Those are some serious arms. Now I'm not saying he could probably punch a black hole square in the face and come out unscathed, but I am saying it's a... / Continue →

    I mean, cool, but you're still jaywalking. Proving that chimps are infinitely smarter than anyone in my neighborhood, this is some footage captured near the Kibale National Park in Uganda of a group of chimps looking both ways before crossing a highway. Most people in my neig... / Continue →

    This is a video/Sony commercial of Rambo the octopus taking pictures of visitors to the Sea Land Aquarium in Auckland, New Zealand. Apparently Rambo learned how to push the shutter button after just three attempts. For reference, my little sister still doesn't know how to tak... / Continue →

    This is a video from the Royal Burgers' Zoo in the Netherlands of a chimpanzee knocking a quadrocopter out of the sky with a long stick. It proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that chimps are infinitely more coordinated than I am. I still brag about that one time I killed a fly... / Continue →

    PROTIP: Turn the volume down, commentary is entirely not worth it. This is a portrait mode video (I give up) of a couple geniuses ziplining (technically not a zipline but whatever) a couch off the balcony of a 3rd story apartment so they don't have to carry it down the stairs.... / Continue →

    This is a video of an octopus in a jar that unscrews the lid from the inside. Octopuses: they are smart. Me? There's no way I could have escaped that. Even if I did figure out that the top was removable by turning, I would twist it in one direction once, then immediately ba... / Continue →

    This is a video of a crow (a member of the Corvus genus, which includes ravens) solving a complex 8-step puzzle in order to grab himself a treat. Apparently members of the Corvus genus are particularly smart, which I already knew because of that Edgar Allen Poe poem where the ... / Continue →

    A line of Adventure Time toys are coming to McDonald's Happy Meals starting January 17th. These are them. There's bendy-arm Jake and Finn, a face-changing BMO, sword-swinging Finn, spring-action Jake, and ice-blast shooting Ice King. I want them all. Guess I'm gonna have to... / Continue →

    In solid decision making news, a man in Australia was recently caught driving with a set of vice grips instead of a steering wheel. Where did the steering wheel go? No clue, but after 286,000 kilometers pieces are bound to start falling off. Police in Australia said that a w... / Continue →

    These are the $22 car and railroad playmat shirts available from Etsy seller bkykid. Your kids can push their little toys around on them while you lay on your stomach and get a free back massage (provided they don't start stabbing you in a kidney with their Hot Wheels). Does ... / Continue →
