    *kick, kick -- byeeeee!* These are a couple videos of people riding the the Sky Tower at Tivoli Friheden in Denmark. You basically just freefall 100-feet into a net below, reaching speeds up to 55MPH in the process. It's like throwing yourself off a building, but without the... / Continue →

    This is a video of a lady throwing a birthday party for a little hedgehog. The hedgehog's two hamster friends show up and they all eat a teensy cake. It was made by the same folks as that hamster eating the tiny burrito video. Everything about it is very precious. Sadly, th... / Continue →

    Remember last week's point-of-view video of the world's tallest water slide? Well it just had its first human riders, and this is the video of them shitting their pants on the way down. Looks intense. Still, a water slide you ride in a raft is no real water slide in my opini... / Continue →

    This is the video resulting from Jos Stiglingh flying a drone with a GoPro attached through a West Palm Beach fireworks display. It's inspired me to rent a hot air balloon and watch the local fireworks display from the sky next year. "They will never let you do that." I don'... / Continue →

    My money's on the space ranger. This is a short gun safety PSA featuring two kids doing battle with dildos. It encourages gun owners to always lock up their guns because, "If they find it, they'll play with it." Apparently even if it's in a bedside drawer and all lubey. Now... / Continue →

    This is a giant boobie bounce house. It's one of the attractions at the NYC Museum Of Sex's exhibit, 'FUNLAND: Pleasures and Perils of the Erotic Fairground'. I have never been to an erotic fairground before. Most of the fairgrounds I have been to have been lined with funnel... / Continue →

    This is a Kickstarter for Project NESM (Never Ending Slink Machine). It's a USB powered treadmill for a Slinky. The project is already funded though so you can definitely get one for around $65 when they're shipped this fall. I actually bought one. I'm pretty sure I could w... / Continue →

    This is the Ultraskiff Angler 360. It's a little round boat with a rotating seat, allowing for 360-degrees of uninterrupted fishing/fun. It comes with standard boat things like storage compartments, rod holders, and BUOYANCY. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? "We play bum... / Continue →

    This is a video from the 2013 Texas Heat Wave custom car show of two lowriders doing battle. They're not REAL cars though -- they're just shells of cars that have had their engines and other heavy parts removed so they can achieve MAXIMUM BOUNCE. Just check out the red, white... / Continue →

    In news that makes your wedding look like it went off without a hitch, this is a video from Dan and Jackie's wedding over the weekend in Minnesota. The entire 22-person wedding party (that's a huge wedding party) decided to have their photo taken on a boat dock before the cere... / Continue →

    This is a video of street performer NOLATron showing off his humanoid Bubblebee form before transforming into a little electric-wheel powered Cadillac Escalade and rolling out. I've actually known about these costumes forever, and I swear I've even posted one of before, but I ... / Continue →

    This is a series of 3-D illusions drawn in the beach sand of Mount Maunganui, New Zealand by Constanza Tagini Nightingale, Jamie Harkins, and David Rendu of 3D Sand Drawings. That's like, a club they started. Is it a club I would join? Maybe. Are there any monthly dues? D... / Continue →

    If you haven't seen it already, this is a video of a dolphin stampede and humpback whale migration caught by aerial drone cameras operated by Captain Dave's Whale and Dolphin Safari. Apparently Captain Dave sunk one drone after flying it into the boat's antenna. Captain Ron n... / Continue →

    That...does not look like Gotham. This is a video of boomerang lover Victor Poulin testing out his newly made 25-inch Batarang. It returns and he catches it on his first try -- incredible! Did you know boomerangs were originally used for hunting? You would just cream some a... / Continue →

    This is one of the $13,000 bar stools made by Hanger 54 from the Martin Baker Mk10 ejector seat from a decommissioned RAF Panavia Tornado. I would drink in that. I would drink in that AND perform constant barrel rolls (technically just 360's). I love playing fighter pilots a... / Continue →

    I'm so high I'm gonna eat this. In news that shouldn't surprise anybody who's ever dreamed of being a drug-abusing teenage dolphin, scientists have discovered groups of young dolphins chew puffer fish to get high. Me? I chew puffer fish because I like the way their spines ti... / Continue →

    This is stabilized footage taken from the Apollo 16 mission of astronaut John W. Young blasting around on the moon's surface in the lunar rover. It looks like he was trying to do donuts. It really is worth a watch (especially in HD). It's hard to believe humans have actually... / Continue →

    Not these balls mind you -- they would take a forklift! Jk jk, but at least a brown grocery bag. This is the incredible ball-moving machine built by Kawaguchi Akiyuki. Each section is an individual module (often designed by other ball-moving aficionados) that moves the lit... / Continue →

    This is the $15,000 Sportsman WV850 H.O. from Polaris. That's a pretty poor name. I would have called it the Unstoppable Earthf***er or something with STYLE. The all-terrain military inspired vehicle includes unpoppable TerrainArmor™ non-pneumatic tires which can stand up to... / Continue →
