    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 →

    These are two worthwhile videos shot from different angles at the Royal International Air Tattoo exhibition earlier this month of a Polish MiG-29 jet going nearly straight-up immediately after takeoff. As a matter of fact, it actually goes further than straight-up and does a f... / Continue →

    This is The Most Realistic Racing Simulator (that's what they named it) available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $185,000. I am going to buy one and put it in my arcade. "You don't have an arcade." Fine, I am going to buy one and put it in my garage. "You don't have a garage.... / Continue →

    This is a short video of motorists in Saudi Arabia unknowingly testing a new speedbump. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say they might need more warning signage. Still, I bet it's exciting to experience. Like realizing right before you go over the first big hill on a ... / Continue →

    Note: This isn't the whole infographic (the whole thing is very long like your penis!), hit the jump to see the whole thing. This is an infographic comparing the speed of a bunch of different spaceships from various sci-fi movies, shows and video games. Plus some real-life sh... / Continue →

    Note: This screencap sucks pretty hard but the video is worth a watch even if you just skip around and pretend you're a space pilot. First person view (FPV) drone racing: it's becoming a thing. Will it become more popular than polo? Definitely after horses go extinct. This ... / Continue →

    This is a video of forever amateur snowmobiler Dipshit McStepOnIt trying to park his ride in the back of a truck. He fails beautifully. I've never even ridden a snowmobile before and I feel like I could do a better job. Of course I feel that way about most things, including ... / Continue →

    This is 'Riding Light', a video imagining the camera as a ray of light traveling away from the sun towards the planets of the solar system at the speed of light. Feel free to skip around though, because the video is over 43-minutes long (the time it takes for light to reach Ju... / Continue →

    Note: First video has tons of cussing on account of being launched like a rocket. Second video has all the cuss words edited out. Don't watch that one. This is a video of Brooks from DragTimes demonstrating the Tesla P85D's 'Insane Mode' on unsuspecting passengers. After co... / Continue →

    Cool, but I want to know more about your friend with the knight's helmet and moon boots on. This is a video of death wisher François Gissy breaking the world record for fastest speed you should definitely never travel on a bicycle, at 207MPH. For reference, that's about 190MP... / Continue →

    This is a video of Walter the labrador speeding down the path from a beach house in Sicily towards the water as fast as he can. Apparently swimming in the sea is his favorite pastime. The last five seconds of the video brought me such happiness. Like, you can SENSE his joy. ... / Continue →

    These are a couple shots and a video of Batman cruising a highway in Japan on his custom trike. What's he doing in Japan? No clue. Maybe he cleaned up all the crime in Gotham already. Or maybe Gotham is such a shithole he just gave up and decided fighting crime in Japan wou... / Continue →

    This is the Renovo Coupe, a 500HP electric sports car with a Shelby American chassis (based on the 1964 - 65 Shelby Daytona Coupe) and 1,000 ft-pounds of torque that can rocket you from 0 - 60MPH in 3.4 seconds. For reference, it takes my car almost a minute and a half to get ... / Continue →

    What the -- get down from there! This is a short video of a BMW that believes it can fly during a rally race. Thankfully, it doesn't crash into the group of bystanders at the bottom of the hill. I was afraid that was going to happen. It didn't though, so that's a relief. A... / Continue →

    This is a video of GoFast jetpack pilot Nick Macomber flying around the spire of Denver's Four Seasons Hotel, some 565-feet (~172-meters) in the air. That looks like fun. I can only hope we're all traveling by jetpacks before I die. Sure they'll have to bury all powerlines t... / Continue →

    This is the 1982 TRON arcade game joystick that's been modified into a car's gear shifter by If Industries. My buddy Terry would f***ing love this because he loves all things that glow blue. He is kind of special in the derogatory sense. Using a joystick for the TRON arcad... / Continue →

    So apparently there's an Easter egg in Google maps that suggests traveling by dragon if you're trying to get from Brecon Brecons in South Wales to Snowdon in Wales (links to actual map). Amazingly, the trip is estimated to only take 21 minutes by dragon, and a whopping 3.5-hou... / Continue →

    This is a picture and video of Highway N329 in Holland. 500-meters of the highway's exterior lines have been painted with glow-in-dark paint, a corroboration between artist Daan Roosegaarde and Dutch civil engineers. Heck yeah, now paint me some glow-in-the-dark lanes to the ... / Continue →

    This is a video of John Hickey's Pontiac Gran Am. Specifically, one of the air vents that goes nuts when you put the A/C on full blast. It's pretty mesmerizing. The sort of thing you could really get lost watching before realizing you're driving on the sidewalk. That said, ... / Continue →

    This is the R/C Bullet, a radio controlled car built by Nic Case, who just set the world record for fastest R/C car when it hit 188.87MPH. For reference, that is infinitely faster than I am running right now (I'm laying on the couch in the break room). There's a video of the ... / Continue →
