    This is a video of Jarrad Provost's son riding around in his modified Power Wheels car. And by modified I mean Jarrad attached a leaf blower to the side so his son can clean up leaves while he ridesr around. Pretty clever. Getting work done AND having fun. It's a shame that... / Continue →

    This is the math worksheet that Redditor irishchck14's 6-year old son brought home after it was graded by his teacher. As you can see, not only is this kid a math genius (I thought for sure Amy had more money), but he is an ARTIST. A real outside-the-box thinker. We need mor... / Continue →

    This is a video of a crow fishing with a piece of bread. The bird is smart enough to use the bread as a tool instead of eating it. Basically the bird tears off a piece and floats it in the water. When a fish goes for it, it goes for the fish. That bird is easily twice as sm... / Continue →

    This is short video from the Steinhart Aquarium at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco detailing how biologists keep captive octopuses stimulated so they don't get depressed. Apparently they give them puzzles and toys and BODY MASSAGES. I wish I got body massa... / Continue →

    This is a video of NBA Miami Heat dancer Teressa Cee after a friend dropped her iPhone in the ocean off Blue Lagoon Island in the Bahamas. A local dolphin goes and picks it up and brings it back up to them. Dolphins: they are way nicer than people. "We were on a floating pla... / Continue →

    In completely unsurprising news, 36-year old Alex Gomez may lose his hand after attempting to pick up a rattlesnake to take a selfie with near his Lake Elsinore, California home. I wish this happened to more people who tried to take ridiculous selfies. Thankfully, Alex's mom ... / Continue →

    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 →
