    This is a video of stuntman/freerunner Damien Walters performing what is allegedly the first human loopty loop on foot. Is it actually the first? No clue. Was it sponsored by Pepsi MAX to encourage everyone to #LiveForNow? Yes, whatever the hell that means. "You know, carp... / Continue →

    This is a worthwhile video captured by reader Alex of the Fireworks Festival that takes place every year in Tainan City, Taiwan, on the fifteenth day of the Chinese New Year. The festival celebrates the end of a cholera epidemic that happened over a century ago. The fireworks... / Continue →

    This is a video of a bus trip along a road carved from the side of a mountain in the Himalayas. Possibly the road in India from Killar in the Pangi Valley to Kishtwar, Kashmir. It is terrifying. I don't care if that road ends at the fountain of youth, I will die old and ugl... / Continue →

    Note: Video is NSFW for reasons of BUTT NAKEDNESS (which, coincidentally, is my favorite reason for NSFWness). This is a segment from Sweetgrass Production's video Valhalla. This particular segment features nothing but naked skiers and snowboarders (both men and women) nake... / Continue →

    Whoa, bro -- socks with sandals and no conductor's hat? This is the $23,000 Amusement Park Ride-On Railroad available from Hammacher Schlemmer (who else?). It's the 1:8 scale rideable train of your dreams. Could you imagine waking up Christmas morning to see one of these in ... / Continue →

    I swear this is an internet classic that I saw and posted years ago, but after a search I couldn't find it on the site so here it is anyways (or again). This is a video of a bunch of dudes attaching explosives to the ends of giant hammers and then smacking them on the ground. ... / Continue →

    This is the Lamborghini Egoista, a 5.2-liter V10, 600-horsepower supercar that can hit 0-60 in under two seconds. It was designed as a one-of-a-kind to celebrate the carmaker's 50th birthday. For my 50th? I dunno, maybe somebody will come scatter flower petals at the site of... / Continue →

    This is the Attraktsionus Double Ferris Wheel concept developed by Art Lebedev Studios. It's like a normal Ferris Wheel, except attached to another, smaller one. It's supposed to be the lovechild of a Ferris Wheel and a cable car and I think we should all take a minute to be ... / Continue →

    This is a video of BASE jumper/wingsuit enthusiast/potential extreme sport accident victim Alexander Polli flying through a tiny stone archway in Montserrat, Spain. They're saying the arch is only six-feet wide, but it looks a little wider than that to me. Granted not wide en... / Continue →

    This is a video of 30 skiers (although I only counted 25) holding hands and doing a simultaneous backflip. Everybody lands it too. If I'd been participating I would have purposefully fallen and dragged everyone else down with me BECAUSE I'M A JERK. Just kidding, because I ca... / Continue →

    This is a video of a 90-year old grandma wearing Oculus Rift virtual reality goggles and taking a tour of Tuscany. And let me tell you -- she is LOVING IT. When I'm old I want VR goggles fused to my eyeballs so I can live out the remainder of my life in virtual paradise inste... / Continue →

    I spy a hoverboard. First Dragon Ball moves in real life, then Vader force-choking, and now some Quidditch in real life pictures (although some just look like witches). It's weird how the internet works, isn't it? It's like, cyclical. Just one big turd-recycling series of t... / Continue →

    This is the Kymera electric bodyboard. It doesn't need Mother Nature's sissy wave power because it has an electric engine and battery. It's basically a lay-down jet-ski, and I was actually pretty impressed with its speed. They're currently a Kickstarter project though so if y... / Continue →

    At first I didn't understand what the big deal with this thing was, because it's just a wetsuit with membranes stretching from the arms and between the legs, but apparently it's supposed to give the wearer a sense of FLYING UNDERWATER. Cool, but do you know where I really want... / Continue →

    This is a video of an industrial robot that's been programmed to carve logs into stools with a chainsaw. Afterwards, the stools are sold to the folks who came to watch the robot in action. Wow, what a fun way to spend a Saturday morning! "You're joking." Of course I'm jokin... / Continue →

    This is the Handlebar Minibar (links to Kickstarter page) by Yannick Reading (of attaching a train horn to a bike fame). Basically you cut the ends of your existing grips off the handlebars, then stuff these little plugs in. Unfortunately, each bottle only holds 5ml, so even ... / Continue →
