    This is a video capturing a giant intake vortex at the Denison Dam spillway on Lake Texoma. The whirlpool is a result of the lake's unusually high water level due to heavy rains. It measures over 8-feet in diameter and is allegedly capable of swallowing a boat whole. Me? I'... / Continue →

    The Black Hole is a water slide at the Bad 1 waterpark in Bremerhaven, Germany. It's an older slide that's been retrofitted with a ton of different LEDs to make riders feel like they're traveling through star fields and a black hole. I've got the feeling traveling through an ... / Continue →

    This is a video documenting what happens when you pour water on a grease fire, filmed at 2,500 frames/second. It basically produces a massive, face-melting fireball. Which is exactly why you should never try using water to put out a grease fire. You should also never use a ... / Continue →

    The HYDAWAY is a $20 water bottle made out of food-grade silicone. They're completely collapsible and reusable (top-rack dishwasher safe), so you can feel good knowing you're not contributing to the 90,000 plastic water bottles thrown away every 60 seconds IN THE US ALONE. Th... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a flamethrower and fire hose doing battle. Who wins? SPOILER: the fire hose. The water wins. Although it did cheat and get a head start. Also, now I want to see a four-way battle between earth, water, fire and wind. Who do you think would win that... / Continue →

    These are the Rainworks street art and games created in Seattle using stencils and water-repellant spray. For those of you who were unaware, Seattle is notorious for its rain. Here in Southern California? Not so much. Apparently we're supposed to run out of water in like a ... / Continue →

    Flood Map is an interactive map you can use to see just what increase in water elevation it would take to flood your town/state/country/world. Apparently it takes a pretty significant increase to flood anything but the coasts, and this map here represents a water elevation of ... / Continue →

    This is a preview video of the the soon to be opened (and probably closed) SkyCaliber water slide at New Jersey's infamous Action Park, best known for its shoddy rides that have killed several people and injured countless others over the years. Obviously, I want to go very bad... / Continue →

    This is the Swirl faucet design concept from Simin Qiu. It uses two turbines to pour water in a two-layer swirling lattice. Because the water doesn't fall in a solid stream, it's supposed to save water consumption by up to 15%. Of course, the extra water you spend just sitti... / Continue →

    Because paisley rims. This isn't a new video, so you may have already seen it. But if you haven't, you're in for a treat. And not some shitty Rice Krispie Treat either, a REAL treat. Like a banana split made with all your favorite ice creams and toppings and bananas with NO... / Continue →

    This is a piece of metal that's been laser-etched with "micro- and nanoscale structures" by scientists at the University of Rochester to increase its hydrophobic (water-repellant) properties. The scientists believe it's a significantly better solution than chemical coatings, n... / Continue →

    Second thoughts: it looks like Bill is having them. This is a video demonstration of the Janicki OmniProcessor, a giant machine that can turn sewer waste (including wadded up toilet paper and actual turds) into electricity, ash, and clean drinking water. It's supposed to be a... / Continue →

    This is the beautifully crafted Bioshock themed aquarium built by Tim Baker Creations as part of the Super-Fan Build web series. They did an amazing job (the Big Daddy's mask has lights inside and his drill even rotates), I just wish it had even MORE decorations. Like, maybe ... / Continue →

    This is Montegrotto Terme, Italy's recently completed 'Y-40' (aka 'The Deep Joy', which I've actually been called before), the new world's deepest swimming pool (previously: this one). The pool's central well reaches a depth of 40-meters (~131-feet) and is used for deep-sea di... / Continue →

    This is a series of photos showing the process that sad and single ARuFa used to turn an ordinary shower head into a beautiful girlfriend. And by beautiful I mean she looks like the girl who craws out of the TV in The Ring. Is he like...going to pleasure himself to that? Wha... / Continue →

    This is a point of view trip down the 17-story Verrückt slide at Kansas City's Schlitterbahn water park. It basically looks exactly how you'd expect -- like you're about to die. Also, I didn't know you rode the slide on a raft. I thought you rode it bare-assed. Well not BAR... / Continue →

    Cool helmet, Jacques Cousteau. This is a video demonstrating what happens when you crack an egg underwater (and deep enough for the water pressure to have an effect). I actually posted a better version of the experiment back in 2012, but maybe you weren't reading then. Hell,... / Continue →

    This is a pool built by Agor Engineering that has a wooden floor that can be raised and lowered hydraulically (previously: these concrete ones). You can adjust the height too, so if you just want to sit in tit-deep water and sip cocktails, you can do that. Or you can make it... / Continue →
