    This is a first person point of view ride of a piece of checked baggage at Amsterdam's Schiphol airport. It basically gets to go on a high-speed roller coaster ride that you paid $25 for. Are all airport's baggage handling systems this elaborate? Why does my baggage never sh... / Continue →

    This is the dashcam footage from a driver in Markham, Ontario who passes by some malfunctioning street lights that are all flashing like the bass is about to drop. You know one time when I was DJ'ing at a party in my basement and I accidentally dropped the bass TOO hard everyb... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy who made himself dual Roman candle machine guns. They look glorious. I would love to be there with a metal trashcan lid trying to deflect shots back at him. Throw a keg of beer and some hot dogs in the mix and that's pretty much exactly what I want t... / Continue →

    This is the WalkCar, a personal electric transportation device that looks like a laptop on wheels. It can support 265-pounds and travel up to 7.2 miles on a single charge at a breakneck speed of 6.2MPH. At speeds like that my mom would almost certainly make me wear a helmet. ... / Continue →

    This is iWheel, a human sized hamster wheel built from 36 empty iMac boxes. Despite all my rage, I am still just a rat in a cage. Just kidding, I am a hamster in a Habitrail. I'm gonna go take a nap in the big red ball! Now, am I supposed to follow the green tube or the blu... / Continue →

    Note: The video should start at 2:55 for the main action. If you want to see what led up to the confrontation (the car passing too close then the two arguing over rules of the road), watch the whole thing, although the guy in the car loves to drop some f-bombs (i.e. "Put your ... / Continue →

    This is a video of stunt biker Robbie Maddison riding a specially modified dirt bike to surf the waves of Teahupoo and Papara in Tahiti. Did the size of his balls scare all the sharks away? Probably. Also I'm pretty sure the COMBINING of extreme sports is going to be the FUT... / Continue →

    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 →

    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 →
