    This is a video of KTRK Houston news reporter Steve Campion rescuing an older gentleman who drove his car right into a heavily flooded street. The people in the white car ahead of him? I'm pretty sure they drowned. I'm kidding, I'm sure they're fine. This guy though -- what ... / Continue →

    This is a video demonstration of the 556-foot-long yacht transporter Super Servant 4. It can flood the rear of the ship so a bunch of smaller (but still very large) boats can be piloted inside, then pump all the water out for dry transport. I am going to buy one, then I am go... / Continue →

    This is a GIF of the Ucayali River in Peru changing shape since from 1985 to 2013. What a difference a couple decades make. Take me for example. Several decades ago there was a time when I was only two feet tall. Now I am over six feet tall. Penis hasn't changed much thoug... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like progressively sadder and sadder penises, this is the biodegradable water bottle invented by Icelandic product designer Ari Jónsson. The bottle is 100% natural and 100% biodegradable, and made from algae. But can you just eat it after? Green technology!... / Continue →

    This is the river-powered barbecue rotisserie made by some genius with an IQ of at least 400. For reference, Albert Einstein only had an IQ between 180 - 190, which explains why he never invented a river-powered barbecue rotisserie. Still, I expected Da Vinci to be all over t... / Continue →

    This is a video of the ice sword that Allen Pan made. Allen made the sword using Pykrete, a frozen composition of approximately 86% water and 14% saw dust or wood pulp (in this case toilet paper). Pykrete is much stronger than ice and is actually more similar to concrete. So... / Continue →

    This is a point-of-view video down the Aqua Racer waterslide aboard Norwegian Cruise Line's flagship vessel, Norwegian Escape. It has one section that is a clear tube high above the ship, and the rest is all trippy light shows. I did not like that clear section. That made me... / Continue →

    This is a video of astronaut Scott Kelly playing the slowest game of ping-pong with himself aboard the International Space Station using two super-hydrophobic paddles and a giant drop of water. Apparently none of the other astronauts wanted to challenge him to a real ping-pong... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a raccoon wetting a piece of cotton candy before eating it. It never gets to eat it though because the cotton candy dissolves instantly. And that is why you never try to dunk your cotton candy. If you get a piece of cotton candy you jam it in your pi... / Continue →

    Do Not Look Into The Eyes is an interactive sculpture created by Norwegian artist Erik Pirolt. It's a ceramic head in a glass box with a warning printed underneath that reads 'Do Not Look Into The Eyes'. When you do look into the eyes because you can't follow directions, wate... / Continue →

    This is a video demonstration of Lafarge Tarmac's Topmix permeable concrete drinking up 4,000 liters of water poured onto it. That is impressive. The concrete in my apartment building's parking lot? It could drink 4,000 liters too, but only beer and liquor. It has a drinkin... / Continue →

    The Tarzan Boat is a boat with a bunch of jumping platforms and trampolines and rope swings and a slide attached. Sadly, there is no circus cannon. It still looks like a great time though. Unfortunately, they cost $65,000 and up, making it far more cost effective to score so... / Continue →

    This is a photo taken by English photographer Mark Parrot of a bee peeing mid-flight. Except it's not actually peeing, it's just expelling water. Suuuuuure it is. And when I'm peeing I'm just expelling Capri Sun pouches and alcohol. Per ecologist and Redditor Alantha: Bees... / Continue →

    This is a video of a tractor trailer dumping its load of shade balls into a Los Angeles water reservoir. Shade balls are plastic balls that have been colored with pure black carbon to prevent sunlight from penetrating the water and causing hazardous chemical reactions with the... / Continue →

    Because you have to get creative to keep yourself entertained during Latvian winters, this is a video of a group of folks who took it upon themselves to chainsaw a giant circle out of a frozen lake, then turn it into a rotating carousel with the help of an outboard boat motor. ... / Continue →

    This is a first person point of view heading down Action Park's 2,000-foot water slide. It's actually more of a slip-n-slide with walls than a traditional waterslide. The whole ride from top to bottom takes almost a minute and a half. That is pretty decent. But what's up wi... / Continue →

    This are several videos of Trude the owl bathing in a sink full of water. Apparently Trude loves bath time, and I can't say I blame him. When I'm in the shower is one of the few times of the day I'm actually able to be happy and relaxed for a couple minutes. Unfortunately, w... / Continue →

    Note: This article was originally published in 2009 but since the internet is like a roller coaster it's going back around again with its hands in the air, screaming. Elisabeth Beucher's Green Warrior Shower Curtain was designed to help control your water consumption by slow... / Continue →

    This is a video from The Slow Mo Guys of one of them sitting inside a giant water balloon until it bursts, all captured in glorious slow motion. I learned very little. Mostly just that giant water balloons are a thing that exist and a grown man can fit in one. Still, I would... / Continue →

    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 →
