    Note: Post originally appeared February 18, 2014 but, SURPRISE, the internet is full of recyclables today and I'm the recycling man. No, no I'm not, but I will look through your garbage for anything that will help me steal your identity. These are shots of the Goleta, Calif... / Continue →

    Note: This post is originally from April 10, 2012. I just saw the video being posted around Facebook and figured I'd move it to the front page. You see, Facebook is like a clothes dryer. It's just all the same stuff going around and around and around. Occasionally, you open... / Continue →

    This is a video of a Brazilian girl catching piranhas by dangling a piece of raw meat in the water, waiting for the piranhas to bite it, then tossing them in a bucket. A fairly solid technique. That plank she's standing on? Not very solid. What's the opposite of something t... / Continue →

    This is a brief portrait-mode video from the Glen Afric Farm in South Africa featuring a tiger leaping for a piece of meat in slow-motion. Pretty amazing, right? Sadly, that piece of meat was Piglet. Hit the jump for the video, then let's make some really convincing tiger co... / Continue →

    This is a commercial for LG's new 4K television featuring a bunch of pets reacting to other animals on the screen. It all looked pretty suspect to me. Fake, the shadows are all wrong, you can tell it's fake because it's a commercial and all commercials were designed to trick ... / Continue →

    This is a very short video of a great horned owl doing the butterfly in Lake Michigan after being downed by two peregrine falcons who decided owl was on the menu for lunch. Apparently the falcons eventually gave up and the owl flew off after safely swimming to shore. Maybe ne... / Continue →

    This is a time-lapse video from Greg Coffin of his Rhodesian Ridgeback Sophia growing from two months old to three years old in 23 seconds. So why is the video almost two minutes long? I asked myself the same thing. Hit the jump for the video.... / Continue →

    I'm pretty sure every video on Youtube with GoPro in the title is, in fact, viral advertising by the brand (except for any that read, "GoPros suck balls" or "GoPros break easy, here's proof"). That aside, this is a video of a squirrel grabbing one and running it up into a tree... / Continue →
