    This is a video of two hikers walking across a crystal-clear frozen lake (have you been watching the videos on Hedonistica? Go watch the videos on Hedonistica) in the High Tatras Mountains in Slovakia. Wow, what a magical adventure that must have been. I imagine later they g... / Continue →

    This is the blood and guts camping tent designed by artist Andrea Hasler. It's made out of wax-covered fiberglass (try carrying that in your backpack!) and doesn't look that comfortable to sleep in. Of course, if it's cold and raining out anything is better than getting eaten... / Continue →

    Allegedly the orchid mantis is the first known species of predator to lure prey pretending to be a flower (not hiding in the flower like some spiders do). Apparently they're so convincing they're more likely to be visited by insects than actual flowers. That's something you m... / Continue →

    Note: Video is NSFW for reasons of BUTT NAKEDNESS (which, coincidentally, is my favorite reason for NSFWness). This is a segment from Sweetgrass Production's video Valhalla. This particular segment features nothing but naked skiers and snowboarders (both men and women) nake... / Continue →

    IMAGE REMOVED This is a picture of a cane toad in Peru that caught a bat in its mouth. Me? I caught a bat in a pillowcase once because it was trapped in my parents screened porch. Then I released him into the night. He promised he would come back to visit, but I never saw hi... / Continue →

    This is a video of a precious little scrapheap of a dog using a slow moving stream to play fetch with itself. Apparently the owners were right there watching him too -- he's not just playing by himself because he has to. Which is a relief, because if your dog teaches itself t... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a Wicked Lasers Spyder III 3 Arctic laser with a perpendicular plane lens and a Krypton laser with a star lens making some sort of trippy moving starfield in the smoke of a campfire. I really felt like I was traveling through outerspace. Still, what go... / Continue →

    This is a time-lapse of bears getting freaky-deaky on a scratching tree in the great outdoors of Alberta, Canada. Well, the great outdoors with power lines in the background anyways. The camera was set up by wildlife lover Glenn Naylor, who is apparently into this sort of thi... / Continue →

    This is a zoomable 2-billion pixel photo of Mount Everest. Well, technically this is a screenshot of that photo, but if you go HERE and click on the picture you can pan and zoom the actual image to your coal-black heart's content. The final composite...was assembled from al... / Continue →

    This is the link to Explore.org's LIVE 'Brown Bear & Salmon Cam' from Brook Falls in Alaska. I've been watching for almost fifteen minutes now and I've already seen two successful fishing attempts. Plus a bird try to steal a fish from a bear. I thought the bear was gonna eat... / Continue →

    This is the Sealander, a camping trailer small enough to be towed behind a regular-sized car that, when backed into the water, turns into a lil boat. No word if it has a glass bottom so you can watch mermaids making love in the seaweed below, but probably not considering MERMA... / Continue →
