    This is allegedly the name chart of Super Smash Bros characters according to 6-year old Chloe, who was asked by her older brother Lorenzo to name them all. She did a great job. Way better than my little sister could have done, but she's not allowed to play video games. "Why ... / Continue →

    Because there are literally tons of people willing to trade hundreds of dollars in electronics for Youtube views, this is a video of a new iPhone 6 taking a liquid nitrogen bath, then being shattered with a sledgehammer. It didn't stand a chance. Of course, an iPhone that has... / Continue →

    Now that's what I call *putting on cool guy sunglasses* using your head. Because who doesn't love smashing things with their head (it's how I open tuna cans), this is a video of Muhammed Rashid of Pakistan cracking 150 walnuts open with his dome in one minute. That is the wor... / Continue →

    This is a video from the 'Man at Arms' Youtube series (previously: Link's Master Sword) featuring blacksmith Tony Swatton forging Thor's hammer Mjolnir in real life. He doesn't actually use the heart of a dying star though (hopefully for reasons obvious to you), instead opting... / Continue →

    Break Club is a club in Buenos Aires, Argentina where members (predominately women) go to break shit with a stick, shatter bottles against the wall, kick stuff, and all around have the best fifteen minutes of their day. It's like a one-sided Fight Club. You know what I do to ... / Continue →

    This is the custom silver Godzilla ring hand-carved and cast by Etsy seller UrbanHunting. You can get your own in sizes 8 - 12 (Godzilla is a big dude) for $500. Alternatively, you can just do what I did. "Glue a toy Godzilla head to a plastic Halloween spider ring?" YEP. ... / Continue →

    This is a 1935 Buffalo/Indian head 'hobo nickel' for sale on eBay featuring a carving of the Hulk ready to leap out of the coin and rage-stomp a pocketful of pennies. What the hell is a hobo nickel? Take it away, Wikipedia!: The hobo nickel is a sculptural art form involving... / Continue →

    This is a video of a garbage truck eating an entire Pontiac Grand Am. Of course the car only has donut tires and you can see the gas tank has been removed, so I'm not sure just how 'entire' it actually is. I've got the feeling it didn't have an engine either. Just a hunch. ... / Continue →

    Because it's Friday and we all started drinking at lunch (we did all start drinking at lunch, right?), here's an Angry Birds wrecking ball spotted in the wild by Redditor bmorschwack. I don't know about you, but come Monday morning I'm gonna be praying I see that thing outside... / Continue →

    Spanish farmer Faustino Asensio Lopez discovered an unusual 220-lb iron rock while inspecting his fields in 1980. So what did he do? What anybody else would, used it as a ham press to smash meat for the next 30 years. Space hams, bro. Then in 2011 he saw a TV program about ... / Continue →

    Scientists at CERN have confirmed the existence of the Higgs Boson, the elusive particle believed to be responsible for giving mass and shape to all objects in the universe. The announcement comes after studying the data from last year's potentially earth-destroying tests usin... / Continue →

    This is the $80 ROULETTE Wheel IQ Cube. It's like a Rubik's cube, but way more complicated because it has a wheel on each side. Wheels makes things harder. Except driving, they actually make driving easier. You ever had a steering wheel break off in your hands while you're ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Geekologie Reader David Klausen and Jorge Sprave (the slingshot guy) smashing the shit out of a Nissan Micra with the 45kg brain bashing Thor hammer that David made. Apparently a lot of folks in the Youtube comments were outraged about the destruction of the... / Continue →

    This is a series of photographs by German artist Martin Klimas of a bunch of porcelain fighting figures the moment of impact after being dropped (the sound of the crash sets off the camera). It makes it look like the little figures are really kicking each other's asses. But t... / Continue →

    [Note to self: remember to delete this tomorrow] So the server spazzed out last night and the last backup was Tuesday afternoon but we've managed to repopulate all of yesterday's eight missing posts (from sea to shining sea the Navy Laser/Gun combo to the Wet Water Homoerotic ... / Continue →

    Note: Video is after the jump. Actually, there can also be zero, because both the 1,200lb pumpkin AND Pontiac lose this fight. It's almost like they uppercutted each other simultaneously. Which is a shame because I just so happen to be in the market for a good used car. J... / Continue →
