    This is a video of two fencers performing a choreographed lightsaber duel at the 2015 Fencing Senior World Championships. It's weird to think of seniors fencing, I always imagined they'd be more into jousting on account of their wheelchairs and all. "Not that kind of senior."... / Continue →

    This is a video of three sumo wrestlers running a foot race. They're surprisingly fast. Thankfully, none of them fell and caused an earthquake. Although contestant number one does almost lose his mawashi (loincloth) at the finish line. Contestant three was smart enough to we... / Continue →

    This is footage from a backwards-running foot race played in reverse, so the participants appear to be running forward very awkwardly while occasionally looking over their shoulder. Who even competes in backwards-running races anyways? I'm guessing people who was tired of onl... / Continue →

    This is a video of modern samurai/all around badass Isao Machii drawing his blade and slicing a 160km/h (99.4MPH) fastball in half. Damn, the Dodgers really could have used him last night. Hit the jump for the video and GO CUBS.... / Continue →

    These are NFL teams' Game Of Thrones style house sigils as imagined by the folks at Stargazer Media (previously: NFL team Star Wars helmets and Game Of Thrones House sports team logos). I wish they'd gotten a little more creative and included mottos too. House New England, 'W... / Continue →

    The Kansas State marching band has been accused of forming a giant penis during their halftime show against South Dakota, and proceeding to have their arch-rival University of Kansas Jayhawks mascot eat it. It is probably the most exhillirating thing a marching band has ever d... / Continue →

    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 the House of Mamba, a full-size basketball court built by Nike in Shanghai. The court comes complete "with motion-tracking and reactive LED visualisation technology built into the floor to help American star Kobe Bryant teach his moves to young players in Shanghai." P... / 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 →
