The 900-foot deep hole is actually a 900-foot tall giant chimney which actually makes this stunt even crazier because Flaviu Cernescu, the daredevil strolling over the hole, actually has to free solo climb the entire thing before he can walk. It's like risking your life only to risk your life even more.
The Siberian Times just published these new amazing pictures of an expedition of scientist who descended inside the mysterious crater on the Yamal Peninsula, northern Siberia. They are collecting data because its origin remains a mystery but, believe it or not, there may be a Bermuda Triangle connection.
By now, you've likely seen the mysterious, yawning hole that appeared in Russia's remote Yamal peninsula, a place whose name literally means "the end of the world." How perfectly spooky! But now that scientists made it out to investigate the hole, let's sort out the facts, conjectures, and conspiracy theories about…
Watch new footage of the mysterious giant hole that opened up in Siberia as a scientific expedition—with the country's Emergencies Ministry represented—reaches the remote site and looks inside.

Promising an overview of the deepest holes in the world certainly leaves one open to any number of (hilarious, sure) jokes about orifices. But man, before you get to all that, would you seriously take a look at these actual gigantic holes? Okay, good, thank you.
We've covered Fleshlights and Tengas plenty here, but until now, Tenga Flip Holes were something only (mostly) available in Japan. Not anymore. Fleshbot tests their new US-edition Flip Holes and say it's amazing—even better than Fleshlights. [Fleshbot]

Plain ol' chairs, couches, sofas, and similar furniture take up too much space and can be too costly, but you've gotta sit somewhere. The easy solution? Cut some holes in your floor and say that you've made an OOoo Chair.
"Oh!" you may say, thinking the Cargo scooter/moped concept by designer Elliot Ortiz is craziness exemplified. But listen: mopeds are a good solution in many places across the world, taking up less road space than cars and being cheap to run. One thing they lack is load-bearing abilities, and that's what Elliot's…
This grommet is just a design, but we wonder why it took someone this long to come up with such a genius (and obvious) idea. Like a regular desk grommet, it's a big hole that lets cables through.
