    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 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 →

    A new world record for the longest man-made reverberating echo has destroyed the previous record holder by a staggering 97-seconds. For reference, that would be like confidently entering the world's largest penis competition and having yours hang to your knees, while the next ... / Continue →

    I actually just stumbled across this monster while doing research for rideable cats for my last post. I do research! Granted it never shows, but sometimes I will Google something if it tickles my fancy. And rideable cat mounts definitely tickle my fancy. You? You try tickl... / Continue →

    This is the first ever 3-D gif music video, created for 'Tendency', a single from bands Estate and Liquid Pegasus. Personally, I prefer my Pegasuses solid, but that's just me and I don't drink tiger penis tea either thinking it's gonna make my boners bigger. The video featu... / Continue →
