This jet-powered boat is going impossibly fast

Yowza. I think if I hopped on this jet-powered boat in New Zealand my hair would fall out, my neck would get stretched out and my face would be permanently smushed in. It goes fast. Like a runaway roller coaster that's off its track fast. I mean, look how quickly it zips in and around the turns of the canyon. » 3/17/15 11:01pm 3/17/15 11:01pm

Rare video captures volcanic lightning from an exploding volcano

Volcanic lightning is one of those crazy, Old Testament-type phenomenons that makes you think that maybe hell is hidden under Earth. We've seen crazy photos before but here it's captured on video by Marc Szeglat. He was chasing down the Sakurajima volcano as it was erupting in Japan and got this awesome footage. » 3/17/15 12:41am 3/17/15 12:41am

This bike rider riding along the side of the mountain is defying gravity

Here is Michal Kollbek harnessing his inner mountain goat and riding the White Line in Sedona, Arizona. It looks like a flat surface—that is, the wrong kind of flat surface that's next to you like a wall and not under you like the road— he's riding on and him not slipping down the steep slide is totally defying the… » 3/12/15 9:07pm 3/12/15 9:07pm

Fast & Furious 7 really freaking did drop cars from a C-130 airplane

The Fast & Furious movie franchise is consistently the most fun anyone can have in a movie theater because the stuff they do is completely ridiculous and borderline insane. Like do you remember that scene from the Furious 7 trailer where they dropped cars from an airplane? That wasn't CGI, that actually happened. » 3/12/15 8:21pm 3/12/15 8:21pm

Case solved: This is the true color of that goddamn white and gold dress

In what may be the biggest case of mass hysteria ever experienced in the history of the internet, everyone in the planet speculated tonight about what's the color of a stupid dress. Some people even claimed it changed color.* Others looked for Photoshop analysis or scientific explanations. Here is the true color. » 2/27/15 12:24am 2/27/15 12:24am

Some people see this dress as white & gold while others see black & blue

I don't know where this image originates from but it's around the Internet right now and it shows a picture of a dress that is so very clearly white and gold to me but is black and blue to so many other people. It's black and blue to Google Image Search. Photoshop's eyedropper tool says it's black and blue. But I only… » 2/26/15 8:26pm 2/26/15 8:26pm

Watching this guy jump down into the thick unknown fog made me scream

The whole time I was watching this video of Marshall Miller base jumping into Lauterbrunnen in Switzerland, I was screaming inside. You see the entire jump from his perspective, as he looks down and around and can't see anything but fog and yet he still makes the jump. And as he's falling down, you still can't see… » 2/23/15 8:51pm 2/23/15 8:51pm

This Japanese Robot Feeds You Tomatoes While You Run

Okay, it's not exactly a robot—but I bet it's still the craziest thing you've seen all day. Japanese juice and ketchup company Kagome built a freaking wearable tomato dispenser for a runner at the Japan Marathon this weekend. » 2/21/15 10:00am 2/21/15 10:00am

Drone footage reveals the alien world that is a frozen Niagara Falls 

Pick your pop culture reference—the Fortress of Solitude or Hoth—and brush the mountains in cotton candy white and add water raging underneath the frozen sheets and you get a little bit close to what Niagara Falls looks like right now. NBC News has footage of the frozen Niagara Falls and it looks like another planet. » 2/21/15 12:14am 2/21/15 12:14am

Did this mad Russian really shoot his friend's head to test a helmet?

This insane video shows a Russian guy shooting a pistol at his friend's head to test the quality of the K6-3—a titanium helmet with bullet-proof glass used by Russian special forces. Some commenters think this may be fake. Many think it's real. What do you think? » 2/16/15 12:51pm 2/16/15 12:51pm

Mad race driver drifting near a cliff on a mountain pass

Video: Here's what happens when a fireworks factory explodes 

That is one hell of a boom. Which makes sense since it's an explosion of a factory of things that go boom. The explosion occurred in Colombia and injured two people. The initial blast knocked the cameraman over and the ensuing fireworks kept shooting out for a solid minute after that. It's pretty nuts. » 1/05/15 11:58pm 1/05/15 11:58pm

Crazy dude jumps and swings from a rope hanging from a paraglider

French BASE jumper Matthias Giraud had the "ridiculously dumb idea" of making a paraglide rope swing. Everyone probably told him that it was also a bad, absolutely crazy idea but, after a couple of years of preparation, he went with some friends to the Columbia River Gorge and did it. This is what happened: » 1/05/15 7:26am 1/05/15 7:26am

Watch a tiger jump impossibly high for meat in slow motion

Holy crap. I'm pretty sure the fence separating the tigers from the humans does absolutely nothing because these tigers can easily out jump it. Look at them gracefully fly in the air and snatch the meat like a wide receiver catching a touchdown pass. These beasts are basically basically comic book superhero versions… » 12/31/14 8:28pm 12/31/14 8:28pm

Watch a Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet land without one of its landing gears

These snowmobile vertical drops look like a suicidal snow rollercoaster

It never ceases to amaze me how people insist on breaking their necks or getting spinal cord injuries by jumping off vertical slopes on top of heavy snowmobiles. The guys on the video below just keep going for it in some rather crazy drops. » 12/29/14 7:28pm 12/29/14 7:28pm

This crazy giant giga-yacht is the size of an oil tanker

This is Imāra, a 918-foot (280-meter) long, 187-foot (57 meter) 11-deck luxury giga-yacht. Today it is only a concept by yacht design shop Motion Code: Blue—but not for long. They are aiming it to their Middle East clients. I'm sure Arab princes and Russian oligarchs are grabbing their diamond-encrusted phones now. » 12/19/14 7:42pm 12/19/14 7:42pm

Insane backflip of a racing hydroplane boat captured on GoPro

Another proof that H1 Unlimited Hydroplane boat racing is insanely dangerous—one wave, one mistake, and you will be launched into the sky with enormous violence. Fortunately, most often nobody dies—although it has happened before. This video of a backflip with multiple loops is spectacular. » 12/12/14 10:03pm 12/12/14 10:03pm

Daredevil jumps off his flying motorcycle and parachutes into a river

Now this is how you bail on a stunt: when the whole point of the stunt is to bail in the most epic way possible. The motorcyclist in the video flies his motorbike off a ramp, jumps off the bike while releasing his parachute and then lands right into the narrow river as the bike crashes before him. » 12/12/14 1:34am 12/12/14 1:34am

Seeing speed climbers shoot up a wall is like seeing Spiderman

The guy on the left set a new world speed climbing record, scaling the wall in about 5.6 seconds. His name is Danyl Boldyrev and he's from the Ukraine but I'm pretty sure that's Peter Parker on steroids. I mean he basically shoots out of a cannon and reaches the top in no time. » 12/11/14 8:00pm 12/11/14 8:00pm
