    This is a video of two guys pranking their friend into thinking he's being abducted by aliens in the middle of the night. His reaction is authentic. Like, he genuinely thinks there are aliens in his room to probe him and take him away. The whole thing brought me great joy. ... / Continue →

    This is a worthwhile video of a dog in a giant spider costume scaring the shit out of people. Because if there's one thing people hate, it's giant f***ing spiders. If there's two things people hate, it's giant spiders, and smaller spiders. If there's three things people hate... / Continue →

    PROTIP: Unmute the volume in the lower right corner for the full effect. Or don't for zero effect. This is a Vine video of some guy imitating his video game playing friend's cell phone notification sounds (including just vibrate!) to get him to check his phone. He does good ... / Continue →

    A Russian chatbot named Eugene Goostman has successfully become the first program to beat the Turing Test and convince more than 30% of the humans it chatted with that it was human as well. I would have never fallen for that. Hello. "Hello." IT'S A ROBOT -- IT'S A F***ING R... / Continue →

    I meant to post this last week but I forgot because I had bigger things on my plate. Namely, a whole fried fish. I PICKED OUT ITS EYEBALLS AND ATE THEM. This is a video of a guy dressed as a Dementor from Harry Potter who comes up to his friend who has engaged a stranger in c... / Continue →

    This is a timelapse of a model being Photoshopped to hell to show just how much computer manipulation goes on in the fashion and advertising worlds. Personally, I think she looked better at the very beginning when she was au naturel, but that's just me and I can see real inner... / Continue →

    This is a video from a British shopping mall of a bunch of people losing their minds after watching someone climb into a Star Trek teleporter and magically get beamed a couple stores away. The stunt was organized by movie streaming service Blinkbox (of Game of Thrones dragon s... / Continue →

    Okay so I'm a little late to the party on this one and it looks like the keg is kicked and all the pretty girls have left, but in case you haven't seen it, this is a video of a pair of dudes in a van taking pictures of people and Photoshopping them into an ad at a bus stop whil... / Continue →

    This is a human armchair costume designed and constructed by artist Jamie Isenstein. It makes you look like you're an armchair, presumably so unsuspecting guests will sit on your lap. Now, are you thinking what I'm thinking? "They should have made it a toilet?" You really a... / Continue →

    Oh hail naw is right! I'm not really going to spend too much time talking about this because it's basically the same thing as the first one, but at the end of the video (starting around 2:28) he does whip his costume off real quick when the lady's back is turned to reveal hims... / Continue →

    Ghost rider. This is a video of a guy tricking fast food drive-thru employees into thinking there's nobody driving his car. He does it by SPOILER: disguising himself as the car seat. Pretty clever. Plus a great way to fool the cops if they ever pull you over! At least unt... / Continue →

    This is a video of magician Rich Ferguson performing the head drop trick for visitors to Bubblegum Alley in San Luis Obispo, California. I've actually seen this trick performed in person before, and, no lie, I jump-kicked the sorcerer and ran off to gather a group of pitchfork... / Continue →

    Meowbify is a website that you can go to, enter the URL of any other website, and it replaces all the images on that site with animated cat GIFs. It really helps jazz up some of the more boring sites out there. Plus if you're really feeling tricky you could probably send a li... / Continue →

    This is a video of some guy with a mesmerizing accent explaining how you can pull "never-ending free energy" from a powerstrip by plugging it into itself then providing a "source of initial energy" to get the electricity flowing. It sucks, but maybe you can send it to your mom... / Continue →

    This is a series of photos comparing fast food company's advertising shots to meals actually received in real life. SURPRISE!: they look nothing alike. Of course if you actually went to Burger King expecting to get something resembling the burger in the picture you obviously ... / Continue →

    The Wrongulator is a cheap $7 solar calculator that's been programmed with bad logic to only give wrong answers. I'm not sure how close the bad answers are to the correct ones, but hopefully close enough so that the error isn't obvious. That, or just 80085 every time. What? ... / Continue →

    Mike Duke, who might have the simplest name ever, modded his late-model Mercury Cougar (which I used to own back in 2001 before sliding it off an icy road, wrapping it around a couple trees and winding up in the ICU for 11 days) into a Bugatti Veyron. Basically by fabricating ... / Continue →

    Simple, you just go to Hackertyper.net, change the custom parameters however see fit, then wait for somebody to start watching over your shoulder. When they do, start pounding away on your keyboard like a child throwing a temper-tantrum, and, PRESTO, lines of code out the ass!... / Continue →
