    Did you know 15-minutes could save you 15% or more on car insurance? Did you know not owning a car could save you 100% or more on car insurance? I JUST DID THE MATH. I'm kidding, I am awful at math. I never got any higher than a C in math, including geometry, which sucks be... / Continue →

    Archery Tag is a new sport sweeping the nation (no clue if this is accurate) that combines the mechanics of archery and paintball. There isn't any paint though (although there should be), instead, opposing teams shoot foam-tipped arrows at each other and you are eliminated by ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a shiny robotic arm performing a rhythmic gymnastics ribbon routine. Is it better than a human can do? Probably. Except for all the Eastern European teams, they are like superhumans when it comes to rhythmic gymnastics. In future Olympics, humans will no ... / Continue →

    This is a video explaining the Magnus effect, or why a spherical (or cylindrical) object with spin on it will curve from its principle flight path. It is a commonly observed phenomenon, particularly in ball sports. Baseball pitchers use it all the time! It does not explain b... / Continue →

    The GolfBoard is the $6,500 cross between a golf cart and an electric skateboard. It carries your golf bag as you ride between shots. Obviously, I'm going to ride mine off the high dive and into the country club's swimming pool. Also, I get the feeling some snobby golf cours... / Continue →

    Note: Video is a little graphic due to oral surgery. This is a video created as part of a Salta beer campaign featuring three rugby players who lost teeth playing the game getting those empty spaces replaced with bottle openers. I can't help but feel they're going to destroy ... / Continue →

    This is a video of big wave surf legend Laird Hamilton riding some waves on a surfboard with a hydrofoil attached, so it rises up out of the water when it gets up to speed. Personally, you'd never catch me in the ocean with ANYTHING strapped to my feet. That's like, a death s... / Continue →

    Nice try, Time Lord -- I recognize a TARDIS when I see one! You may have already seen it since it was all the rage over the weekend, but this is a video of Danish archer Lars Andersen demonstrating some of the amazing archery techniques he's dug up by studying historical texts... / Continue →

    This is a video from the 2014 World Bowling Men's Championship in Abu Dhabi in which Team USA's Bill O'Neill thinks he bowls a strike, but one of the pens flips and bounces itself back upright. Bill then had to bowl for a spare, which he got. Later, I assume he was kicked off... / Continue →

    This is a video demo of a glitch from Madden NFL 15 that causes Browns rookie linebacker Christian Kirksey to appear 1-foot 2-inches tall (although he's on the Tennessee Titans in the video due to playing on challenge mode). Apparently he's not that good at tackling, but can s... / Continue →

    This is part of a World Cup inspired anti-gambling campaign run in Singapore. This kid's dad just made a fortune. Granted gambling addiction is bad, but that's only when you're losing. It's much harder to explain to somebody who just won thousands of dollars why what they di... / Continue →

    This is the series of Game of Thrones house themed soccer uniforms imagined by Spanish designer Nerea Palacios. She did a great job. I would play for any of those teams. Jk jk, I would only play for House Targaryen. I want the dragons on my team. "Dragons can't play soccer... / Continue →

    So somebody realized the 2014 World Cup Brazil logo looks like a facepalming Captain Picard. You think the person who designed it was inspired by The Next Generation? That answer is no unless you're a crazy person. Come on, I believe in gnomes and fairies and even I can reco... / Continue →

    This is a short (and shaky) video of George R.R. Martin throwing out the first pitch at an Albuquerque Isotopes minor league baseball game. You don't actually get to see where the pitch lands, but I get the feeling George made the right decision pursuing writing instead of bas... / Continue →

    This is a series of 25 NHL hockey team logos that have been Simpsonized by Instagram user ak47_studios. Which is your favorite? My bet is one of the teams that he hasn't done yet, because you're just one of those kind of people. Always a negative, half-glass-empty kind of mo... / Continue →

    This is a video of some insane bowling trick shots by Australian pro bowler Jason Belmonte. Jason teamed up with trick basketball shot pros Dude Perfect (of this video fame) to deliver a video that I can only imagine is giving The Dude a monster boner right now. I mean, if he... / Continue →

    Remember XPogo's extreme pogo-sticking video from last year? Well now they're back with COOLIGANS, their latest balls-to-the-handlebar, penis-to-the-stick, head-to-the-pavement pogo video. It really is worth a watch if you get the chance, they get pretty nuts. They're doing ... / Continue →

    This is a brief video of a giant raptor throwing the first pitch at a recent San Diego Padres game (previously: this one who sucked at throwing). Judging from the video, there were literally over a hundred people in attendance. That might be a Padres record. Hoho -- burn. ... / Continue →

    This is a short video of the Gainesville (Florida) based WCJB-20 sports news team reenacting highlights from the NCAA 'Elite Eight' tournament game between Dayton and Florida since they didn't have the rights to play the actual footage. It might have actually been better than ... / Continue →
