    This is a series of geometric sandcastles built by sculptor Calvin Seibert (links to his Flickr with a ton more high-res shots) on the beaches of Hawaii. They are most impressive. You know, I built a sandcastle once when I was in Florida on vacation with my family. I remembe... / Continue →

    This is a time-lapse of Italian sculptor Valeriano Fatica carving a dragon's head out of a watermelon. I also included a couple pictures of some of Valeriano's even more impressive work after the jump, including an unbelieveable Joker face, chimp and dog. Plus a video of him ... / Continue →

    Note: Worthwhile higher-res shot of the armor HERE in case you wanted to take exact measurements to see whether or not your balls would hang below the codpiece. This is the Asgardian Iron Man leather armor created by the magicians at Prince Armory (previously: their Joker and ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Red Bull stunt pilots Paul Bonhomme and Steve Jones barnstorming (technically hangarstorming) side by side at 185MPH, caught from a bunch of different angles and in beautiful slow motion. They must really trust each other. Also, maybe it's true after all th... / Continue →

    This is a giant gallery of the balloon insects and animals twisted by Japanese balloon artist Matsumoto-san. A lot of them are unbelievable. Just think: if this guy is already making things so impressive, just imagine what he could create if he ever found out there are more ar... / Continue →

    This is the Nintendo-64 modded by Belgian artist Vadu Amka with a beautiful, albeit subtle, Ocarina of Time theme. Don't get me wrong, I'd still totally give my left nut for it. I mean, if I hadn't already lost it in a Rollerblading accident in high school. The ancestral ge... / Continue →

    This is a very worthwhile video of Shelby Mitchusson translating Eminem's 'Lose Yourself' into American Sign Language (with audio so you can follow along). Apparently Shelby performed the song in an effort to secure an interpreting position, which, unsurprisingly, was successf... / Continue →

    This is the 10,000 piece "accurate to minifig scale" LEGO Millennium Falcon cross-section created by LEGO builders Titans Creations. It looks most impressive. I actually tried to build the 1,200 piece Millennium Falcon set that LEGO released a couple years ago, but you know w... / Continue →
