The trailer for Inherent Vice is the zaniest thing I've seen this year

PT Anderson's new movie Inherent Vice looks like it's going to be oodles of fun to watch. The first official trailer is absolutely fantastic and also, absolutely wall the off, shitbat zany. There is so much weird and so much hilariousness and so much awesome that I can't wait to watch it in theaters. » 9/29/14 8:55pm Yesterday 8:55pm

The world would be a much better place if God were this little girl

If the entity known as "God" is not a figment of our collective imagination—product of our desire to find solace from the nonsense that is life—he actually did a pretty horrible job. Maybe things would have been a lot different if he left everything to the little girl in this short animated film. » 9/26/14 11:06pm Friday 11:06pm

Short film: A zombie apocalypse might actually be pretty fun

TV shows like The Walking Dead make the zombie apocalypse look like a soul evaporating place because the characters enjoy making dumb decisions. Zombie movies like 28 Days Later make it look terrifying because of the constant state of panic. But what if the zombie apocalypse was actually... fun? » 9/25/14 12:35am Thursday 12:35am

Is this the most ridiculously looking scientific discovery of all time?

This is Gary Dryfoos demonstrating one of the 2014 Ig Noble prizes: Use bacon "to stop uncontrollable, life-threatening nosebleeds." Seriously, it's a real research paper and it has already saved lives. Watch the ceremony to see the most ridiculous—but sometimes crucial and enlightening—scientific research of 2014. » 9/22/14 10:12pm 9/22/14 10:12pm

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 9/17/14 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 9/16/14 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 9/13/14 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
