If nobody owns these cool animal selfies, we should give them the money

This animal selfie compilation got me thinking: If the courts say these photos can't be owned by humans because they are taken by animals, shouldn't there be some kind of international legal mechanism to make the people who use the photos pay some money to protect each species? Makes sense to me. » 9/17/14 12:37am Yesterday 12:37am

Skateboarding through 5000 balloons looks like a whole lot of fun

If you think about it, ball pits are gross cesspools that hide violent bits of static charges and virulent diseases that smell like melting plastic. They are not fun. But that's because adults are not fun. For kids, there are few places better. This 5000 balloon pit is like a ball pit for kids, but for skateboarders. » 9/16/14 11:26pm Tuesday 11:26pm

Making noises and sounds like a foley artist looks like a lot of fun

None of the mics are actually plugged in and the video is an ad for COS by Lernert & Sander but it sure makes the job of a foley artist look like a lot of fun. Rushing to recreate noises by creatively manufacturing sounds, choreographing moves to heighten the senses, it looks like a band performing with ridiculous… » 9/13/14 12:35am Saturday 12:35am

Watch an adorable 2-year-old girl immediately identify fonts adorably

I learned two things while watching this aww-inducing video. Scarlett, the cute 2-year-old girl in the video, is a genius child with an eagle eye for instantly recognizing typefaces better than most humans and that it's going to be awesome to be a parent because you can teach your kid whatever the heck you want them… » 9/11/14 8:55pm 9/11/14 8:55pm

Short film: Crazy infernal breakup feels so real it's actually hilarious

Its animators describe Mortal Breakup Inferno as "an angry girlfriend's infernal hunt of the man who broke her heart." I find it hilarious because it reminds me of some real cases that may or may have not involved men or women turning into fire-breathing monsters—although none had a final twist like this. » 9/09/14 11:45pm 9/09/14 11:45pm

This might be the most fun you can have with a Nerf gun

A Nerf gun is never not fun. If you see one of those laying around anywhere, at a toy store, in the office, in a kid's bedroom, in your dreams, you have to pick it up and get goofy with it. So how can you have more fun with something our DNA says is never not fun? By adding explosions like mad genius Colin Furze. » 9/08/14 10:04pm 9/08/14 10:04pm

What it's like to see cities from the ISS like an astronaut

You know how when you look outside the airplane window and you're in awe of all the lights and the outlines of the city and how you're in the freaking air? Yeah, that's nothing compared to the fun that is spotting cities from the ISS. Watch as astronauts show us what cities look like from space. » 9/04/14 1:25am 9/04/14 1:25am

Watch vegetables get turned into juice with underwater shockwaves

Screw juicing or making kale smoothies, here's the next big trend in what to drink: turning fruit and vegetables into juice with underwater shockwaves. The outside of the vegetable look the same after the explosion but the inside has turned into juice. Just stick a straw in and enjoy. » 9/03/14 7:31pm 9/03/14 7:31pm

Angry ram knocks a drone out of the air and chases down photographer

Meet Ram. It rams things it doesn't like. Meet Drone. It buzzes around and films things it sometimes shouldn't. Ram meet drone. Ram rams drone. Ram chases down photographer who tries to save drone. Ram is like celebrities who freak out on the paparazzi for getting too close. Celebrities are just like us. Ram is us. » 9/02/14 10:30pm 9/02/14 10:30pm
