These are the ingredients and additives inside your favorite foods

Eating a bag of chips? Delicious right! Great snack. But what you’re really eating are all these weird powders and difficult to pronounce additives and manufactured colors and sticky glue goop.

Watch bare skin get tasered in painful super slow motion

This is a little bit gross but if you were ever curious as to how a taser works, just watch it shoot out in super slow motion. The electrical cartridge jumps out of the gun in an explosion of confetti (the confetti has a unique serial number), breaking down the door and then swimming through the air to latch onto the… »9/11/15 9:33pm9/11/15 9:33pm

Video shows what it looks like when vultures attack a carcass in nature

Here’s a really unique view of what it would be like to be a dead animal in the life cycle of nature. National Geographic dropped off a wildebeest carcass in the Serengeti in Africa and recorded exactly what it looks like to see bugs swarm and vultures fight each other to eat what’s leftover of the carcass. »9/08/15 8:20pm9/08/15 8:20pm

A seemingly never ending microscopic zoom reveals the gross tiny germs

BoingBoing says this crazy zooming GIF is that of an amphipod. Or well, it starts with an amphipod and then moves into diatom and then reveals the bacterium. Which, well, cool. But also totally gross to imagine all the little invisible critters and germs on any given surface at any given time. »8/31/15 12:10pm8/31/15 12:10pm

An Acid-Spilling Mine Turned This Colorado River Bright Orange

This time of year kayaks and inner tubes crowd the crystal-clear waters of the Animas River, which flows through the western Colorado city of Durango. Last night, the river was quickly abandoned as one million gallons of wastewater seeping from a local mine slowly trickled downstream, eventually coloring the entire… »8/07/15 1:40pm8/07/15 1:40pm

Shooting brown sludge from a cannon in slow motion is so much gross fun

It’s abundantly clear now that a slow motion camera is probably the funnest toy a bored suburban kid could ever ask for. Anything you do is immediately more gross, epic, impressive, sillier and just plain funner-er than real life. You could just load up a homemade cannon with brown sludge and ketchup and shoot it at… »6/26/15 6:43pm6/26/15 6:43pm

Seeing plants naturally explode like bombs is pretty freaking gross

Imagine you’re taking a walk and trying to enjoy Mother Nature for all her beauty when you brush up against a squirting cucumber and have it explode like a bomb and spew its seed and guts all over you like a blown up, shooting fire hydrant. These things are like a ticking time bomb, when they blow they GO. »6/12/15 9:35pm6/12/15 9:35pm

What in the monster hell is this scary bright green and pink gooey worm

It’s just not right. Adult humans should not have to fear monsters. But how in the world will the world ever sleep again after knowing that this terrifying radiator fluid-looking worm goo thing exists? Can humanity survive after seeing this? Just look at the sludge bug shoots out its pink dart and you’ll only dream… »6/09/15 11:04pm6/09/15 11:04pm

Video: Meat glue turns cheap cuts of beef into a fake ribeye steak

Meat glue is always going to be totally weird sounding but we’ve all eaten it before (if you eat at fast food restaurants, at least). It’s derived from blood and is a clotting agent that allows different types of meat to stick to each other, hence the name. You can do a lot of weird, Frankenstein-type experiments with… »6/09/15 7:26pm6/09/15 7:26pm

Awesome time lapse shows the entire transformation of bees as they hatch

Watch bees hatch right before your eyes in this stunningly clear time lapse that tracks the growth from larva to pupa to the full grown bee.

Watch a terrifying worm bug thing shoot out an attacking web goo

I no longer want to live in this world anymore because I don’t want to share it with this utterly terrifying ribbon worm that has the ability to spit out an even more terrifying web-shaped goo. The way the substance stretches across that person’s hand just makes me want to never ever go outside again. »5/04/15 8:19pm5/04/15 8:19pm

Soda actually makes for an excellent cleaning agent

Need to scrape gum off a sidewalk or get bird crap off your car or even clean your toilet? Just pour soda on it or around it or in it and let the delicious bubbly sugar liquid diabetes do its thing. Soda can be a magic cleaning material. Which is awesome to know in a pinch but also completely disgusting since we… »4/13/15 6:40pm4/13/15 6:40pm

Watching all the gory Fatalities in Mortal Kombat X destroyed my eyes

Don't watch this video if you get queasy by pixel created blood and hyperrealistic video game gore. Because good lord the Fatalities in Mortal Kombat X are downright disgusting to see. If you remember the game, players are supposed to "finish" a character with a brutal Fatality move after a fight and these news ones… »3/30/15 2:49pm3/30/15 2:49pm

KFC's Double Down hot dog is a sausage wrapped in a fried chicken bun

Here is proof that there's always more horrifying Frankenfood left to be invented and more stomachs to destroy with fast food: the Double Down hot dog. It's KFC's take on a hot dog only instead of using a regular hot dog bun, KFC is whipping out a bun made with fried chicken. It looks ridiculous. »1/26/15 9:30pm1/26/15 9:30pm
