    This is a video of helicopter pilot Dan Clark showing just how fast he can pick up felled Christmas trees and throw them in the back of a truck in Oregon. He's pretty quick. I'm not sure how I'd feel about being the guy that has to hook up the next tree to Dan's cable. Also,... / Continue →

    This is the ninja-shaped leaf that Redditor freeaccount found out in the wild, along with an artist's rendition of what the ninja would look like in real life. Now before you go running off to the comments to leave a 'Wow, must be a slow news day', I want you to think about th... / Continue →

    This is the Virgin Mary spotted in a cut log in Utah. The resemblance is pretty uncanny. And by uncanny I mean people need to get a grip and stop spazzing out over stuff like this. If I took a picture every time I saw something that resembled the Virgin Mary I would be a scr... / Continue →

    Remember the previous Assassin's Creed parkour video? I didn't. Thankfully a tipster reminded me. And now free-runner Ronnie Shalvis is back at it, this time with an Assassin's Creed III themed parkour video which may or may yes involve hanging redcoats and doing flips over ... / Continue →

    This is a castle sculptured around an actual bonsai tree by Japanese artist Takanori Aiba. If a shrink-ray existed, I would shrink myself and live there. Unfortunately shrink-rays don't exist, so I'm stuck in this basement apartment with a serial killer living above me. Don'... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE in case you want to print it out to try to get into Poison Ivy's pants or something. Be careful though -- I heard she has a killer bush. SPOILER: Not in the middle! Proving beyond the shadow of a doubt that the midwest is, in fact, America's butthol... / Continue →

    This is the Solar Bonsai Electree, a 27-solar paneled gadget charger in the shape of a tree. Too crazy for you? Stop reading now. The tree reaches a full charge in less than three hours and can store enough juice to charge 9 iPhones. Why anybody would have more than six iPho... / Continue →

    This is a video of a little race car game where you try to avoid the sides of the road and other obstacles. It's played on a piece of continually printing paper that randomly generates the road as it goes. Not unlike real driving. HOLY SHIT THAT BIKE JUST CAME OUT OF NOWHERE... / Continue →

    Note: Full-res (1600 x 1200) version HERE in case you're convinced there's a stray shadow faux pas somewhere you could spot if the image were just larger. This is a for-really-real picture taken by Frans Lanting in Namib-Naukluft Park in Namibia. Like, it hasn't been Photosho... / Continue →
