    This is a video of ocean life photographer Timothy Ewing taking pictures of a red octopus while the octopus checks him out. Whenever Timothy starts to disappear behind the rock, the octopus's curiosity gets the best of it and it raises itself to see where he went. Octopuses r... / Continue →

    A street artist going by the name Wanksy started spraypainting problematic potholes in Manchester, England with crude penises, and the majority were repaired within 48 hours, and even more within the week. That is how you GET THINGS DONE. Wanksy says the inspiration for his r... / Continue →

    This is a video of a hungry fox in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone in Ukraine making itself a sandwich by stacking the slices of bread and sausage tossed to it by a news crew. For reference, my roommate still can't make a sandwich, or eat one without biting his own fingers. I wo... / Continue →

    This is a shot of Neil DeGrasse Tyson circa 1980, when he was around 22 (he was on the crew and wrestling teams at Harvard). Those are some serious arms. Now I'm not saying he could probably punch a black hole square in the face and come out unscathed, but I am saying it's a... / Continue →

    PROTIP: Turn the volume down, commentary is entirely not worth it. This is a portrait mode video (I give up) of a couple geniuses ziplining (technically not a zipline but whatever) a couch off the balcony of a 3rd story apartment so they don't have to carry it down the stairs.... / Continue →

    This is a video of an octopus in a jar that unscrews the lid from the inside. Octopuses: they are smart. Me? There's no way I could have escaped that. Even if I did figure out that the top was removable by turning, I would twist it in one direction once, then immediately ba... / Continue →

    This is a video of a crow (a member of the Corvus genus, which includes ravens) solving a complex 8-step puzzle in order to grab himself a treat. Apparently members of the Corvus genus are particularly smart, which I already knew because of that Edgar Allen Poe poem where the ... / Continue →
