    I'M A BIIIIIIIIRD! This is a video about a 'salmon cannon' designed to launch salmon upstream in places where dams make swimming upstream to spawn impossible. The cannon can shoot the fish up to 22MPH, with a rate of 40 salmon per minute. Then they all get together and have ... / Continue →

    In news that makes me want to rent a bounce castle and pilot it to Oz, a bounce house with three kids inside became airborne on Monday due to heavy winds. Thankfully, the children fell out when the castle was only 15-feet high instead of the high as shit it is in the picture. ... / Continue →

    This is a very brief video of a sugar glider (a variety of gliding possum) that divebombs its owner whenever he snaps his fingers. Nice WWF championship wrestling belt, btw. Is that Macho Man Randy Savage's? Also, I'm pretty sure that's a bow and arrow hanging from the smoke... / Continue →

    This is a brief video of a raccoon popping bubble wrap. Or trying to eat it. I think he's just trying to eat it. Wouldn't it be cool if bubble wrap bubbles were all filled with different scents and when you popped them you got to smell them? Because I would start manufactur... / Continue →

    This is a video from Russia of some kid repeatedly going over the top bar on a swingset. The swingset has stiff metal handbars instead of chains though, which I assume make it a lot easier. Plus it's tiny. Basically I'm saying anybody with big enough balls could do it. You ... / Continue →

    This is the human-sized hamster wheel available FOR FREE on Craigslist in Brooklyn, NY from ridiculously named Sandra Z. Zzz, who either changed his name because he fancies himself an artist, has cruel parents, or whose name is actually Dick Tent. Honestly, what do you think ... / Continue →

    This is the conceptual art for the 2016 addition of AVATAR Land to Disney's Animal Kingdom Park in Orlando, Florida. It's the perfect addition to the Animal Kingdom Park because all the plants and animals from AVATAR are way cooler than the real ones we have on earth, and who ... / Continue →

    Well folks, your dreams of local news broadcasts filled with reports of flying car crashes may soon be reality, with Terrafugia hoping to be selling its Transition model of hybrid car-plane (starting around $280,000) as early as 2015. The company has also announced a concept f... / Continue →

    This is a video made using 52 GoPro cameras to capture dogs playing and doing tricks in bullet-time. Unfortunately, they set the cameras up in a line instead of a circle or arc so it just kind of pans along the action instead of capturing it from all angles. NOT HOW I WOULD H... / Continue →

    This is a video of Rickard Nillson and his tractor. Except his tractor is no ordinary hayride-pulling tractor, he stuffed a Volvo 240 turbocharged engine in the thing. Now it goes FAST. And does DONUTS. I can honestly say I've never wanted to die in a tractor related incide... / Continue →

    This is reader Morgan's R2-D2 themed Vespa. He did it all himrself and, obviously, did a great job. You know, I modded a Vespa once. "What was the theme?" Wrecked! *waiting for laughter* Wrecked -- as in I crashed it! *crickets chirping* Come on, that one went over gre... / Continue →

    Because what good is a baby if you can't win street races together, new father Colin Furze (who already has the record for fastest mobility scooter) built a motorized stroller capable of doing 50MPH. Obviously, he never actually totes his baby around in the thing because his w... / Continue →

    Moths (AKA ugly butterflies): they're spazzy. They're like the Geekologie Writer of the flying insect world: attracted to bright lights, always running into things, and will probably meet their untimely death from the shock of a bug-zapper. This is a 20-second exposure showin... / Continue →

    This is the Rockboard Decender, a $120 skateboard deck with tank treads instead of wheels that can only be ridden down hills (unlike THIS badass mother). Don't have any hills around your house? GET THE F*** OUT OF THE MIDWEST. Trust me, you'll thank me for it later. Ooooooo... / Continue →

    Go to Google, type in 'do a barrel roll'. The page barrel rolls. This isn't rocket surgery, folks. Google and Google (this one should auto-roll for you) Thanks to Tarkin, Boogie Jon and bb, who don't use Google for anything but reading the autofill responses when they're bo... / Continue →

    Robots: they're greedy. You give them two feet and they try to take a yard. Then? Then they take the beating of a lifetime. *ties electric cord to ceiling fan, watches robot get beat against walls until pieces start coming off* Now THIS -- this is real entertainment. Shii... / Continue →

    Seen here doing a rad-to-the-power-of-sick gutter stomp or some shit, a kid rides a BMX bike while attached to a rope swing. And this is an hour of that, cut down to 5:30, because, let's not kid ourselves, a whole hour would almost be too good to be true. Admittedly, BMX bike... / Continue →

    This is a video of four dudes putting on a 2:00 synchronized indoor skydiving show. It's...a treat for the eyes. If you're into synchronized swimming but are pissed the Olympics aren't on TV, this is definitely for you. If you're into videos where people hurt themselves, it'... / Continue →

    Shotgun! Ever wanted to see four Hummers get sucked out the back of an airplane in the dead of night over Iraq? Relax bro, I've got you covered. Unless it's your privates cause your swim trunks ripped or a bar fight, in which case we've never met and you don't even look fami... / Continue →

    If you'd asked me when I was 10, I would have told you WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT that by 2011 we'd all be shooting around in the sky with jetpacks on, crashing into each other, getting sucked into jet engines, and all around dying every way possible a person with a rocket str... / Continue →
