This is a video of a group of Russian fishermen trying to make their way through a plague of locusts (previously: trying to drive through one). That does not look like a very fun time. As a matter of fact, that looks like a very bad time. Maybe not as bad as the death of your firstborn, but plagues are relative.
This is the line of Disney princess wedding dresses designed as a collaboration between Disney and Japanese wedding dress company Kuraudia Co. Each of the 14 designs were inspired by six different princess and are available to rent for $3,600. Wait -- $3,600 TO RENT? Now I'll be the first to admit I don't know the first thing about wedding related costs, but that sounds like a lot of money. Presumably because it's a lot of money. And you don't even get to keep it. A matching Prince Charming tux is also available to rent for an additional $900. Admittedly, I'm into the dresses, but a lot of them are really colorful. If I'm getting married in something with that much color you better believe it's going to be a tie-dyed Grateful Dead tour t-shirt.
This is the $15 Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan inspired best friends necklace engraved with Spock's last words to Captain Kirk after restoring power to the Enterprise's warp drive and receiving a fatal dose of radiation in the process (although his actual last words were 'live long and prosper' -- he says this just prior). Decent, but it's kind of weird that the two part individually read 'I Have And Shall Your' and 'Been Always Be Friend'. That sounds more like something you'd expect to see on the t-shirt of a woman in China than a Star Trek best friends necklace.
Keep going for a couple more shots and the tearjerking scene from the movie for reference.
This is a short video of a guy putting his hand in a circle around the bullseye of a dartboard with the expectation that his friend makes a bullseye and not a puncture wound. SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER LIKE YOU DIDN'T ALREADY SEE THE PICTURE: his friend has better aim than I do. Or at least didn't purposefully stab his hand like I would have done.
This is a video of a couple guys playing around with a small sandbox that they're pumping air into the bottom of, causing the sand to act like a liquid. I did not know that would happen.
Science! "Sorcery." Kill the wizards!
Keep going for the whole video, it's pretty trippy.
This is a video of some guy showing off a Giant West African Snail (Archachatina marginata). The massive mollusks can grow shells reaching 21cm (~8 inches) in length and 13cm (~5-inches) in diameter. That is a big snail. Unfortunately, they're considered one of the most invasive species in the world, and wreak havoc on crops. So if you see one you should probably yell at it. I just poured a giant salt circle around my house to keep me safe from them and -- oh, wonderful -- now it's raining. *waving fist at heaven* That salt wasn't cheap, you know! "You used Splenda." Man, you just always have to be right, don't you, God?
Keep going for the video while I go put one of these in my roommate's shower.
This is a video demonstration of the Michigan Beer Chair (the back is shaped like Michigan) built by Matt Thompson. With the push of its lever, it dispenses a cold beer (or, in this case, a Vernors ginger ale) from an insulated cooler filled with ice attached to the chair's back. That way you never have to get up to get another beer -- or at least not until you've already drank the cooler dry. "But what about going to the bathroom?" You're outside! Just roll to one side and water the grass. FUN FACT: I used to pee from the same spot on my second story deck in Virginia to the point that it actually killed the grass below. And, okay, one time started a fire. My diet....wasn't the healthiest (plus I was drinking a lot of gasoline trying to impress the Autobots).
This is a video of François Gissy setting a new world record on his rocket-powered bicycle by accelerating from 0 - 333km/h (207MPH) in 4.8 seconds. For reference, that is entirely too fast to be going on a bicycle (previously: his neck-breaking water pressure powered bike that goes from 0-62MPH in half a second). The fastest I've ever gone on a bicycle? Maybe 25MPH, and it felt like I was going light-speed and could crash and die at any moment. I didn't, although I rarely go faster than 10MPH any more. Plus, you know, it's kinda hard to pedal with my peg leg. "You have a peg leg?!" Yaaaar! Plus the eyepatch screws with my depth perception. "An eyepatch too?!" And I don't want my parrot to get scared.
