The North Face of the Eiger — also known by its more charming moniker, the Wall of Death — is one of climbing’s most iconic faces. It was first climbed in 1936, and since then, has claimed the lives of dozens of alpinists. These 360-degree videos bring that sensation of pure, unbridled terror right into your living…
Exactly one year ago today, I set out to collect 314 pi-related YouTube videos in honor of Pi Day. I got to 22 before I gave up in disgust. Here is that post, untouched since March 14, 2013.
The revelation at the end of Fight Club that Tyler Durden was merely a figment of the narrator's imagination blew more minds than that self-inflicted gunshot wound. But what if you could watch the movie without Brad Pitt's character being there at all?
Sure, it's a nice gesture to make—or even 3D print!—your loved ones a customized gift. But can your own pitiful trifles compare to the $30 million backyard stadiums one architecture firm is offering up?
Gosh! I wonder which emoji is trending on Twitter right now! I wish there was some sort of online tool that tracked such a thing! Oh, there is! Praise jeebus for emojitracker.com!
Immigration reform is a huge issue in Silicon Valley (and the rest of the country) right now, and we've seen a bevy of realistic proposals for dealing with a system that many describe as "broken." But Blueseed, a group of entrepreneurs aiming to build a floating city off the coast of San Francisco to house foreign…
How did 60 Minutes film their segment tonight on free solo climber Alex Honnold? For such a dangerous and unique assignment, only the best would do.
This is Jon. He recently recorded himself counting to 100,00, one deliberately paced integer at a time. Join him won't you? At least for a little? You don't often get to stare so directly into the face of madness.
In most countries, a wedding is accompanied by a tasteful card, subtly boasting of newly-institutionalized love on very thick stock paper. In Russia, some couples break the news with a photoshopped pic of the groom crushing his winged-wife in miniature.
Call it a photocopier or a generic xerox. We all know exactly what we're talking about. Unless you're Ohio state employee Lawrence Patterson, who last year, in one of the most bizarre legal arguments ever, claimed to have no idea.
Do you ever wonder just how paralyzingly scary it is at the top of a 1,700 foot broadcast tower? Where you're closer to the clouds than you are to the ground? Let this guy do the climbing. [Neatorama]
Darpa, the Pentagon's crazypants research arm, is taking shit to a whole new level: they're pumping money into developing synthetic organisms immune to death. Oh, except for the built-in genetic kill switch. Yikes.
Meet Peter Terren. Inspired by the The Thinker, he set out to recreate that classic sculpture using electricity, wire caging, a conductive foil suit, and a death wish. Can't forget the death wish.
Meet crazy inventor Richard Carter. Where most people look at singing novelty fish and say "get that damn thing away from me," Carter saw something magnificent—and the Sashimi Tabernacle Choir was born.
Just when we thought Dubai couldn't make more absurd architectural decisions, they go and commission a Dutch dude to make floating islands in the shape of Arabic letters that spell out a part of a poem. This floater of an idea has been tried before, albeit on a smaller scale with cruise ship terminals, mosques and a…

Ever thought of getting yourself a permanent pair of Star Trek Vulcan ears? A day trip to the plastic surgeon can get that done for you. This body modification is said to enhance the music listening experience, but then, you have to go around looking like Spock to enjoy that questionable benefit.
Whatever Google might announce in two weeks, they're certainly reaping the benefits already: Hype over their mobile plans has shoved their stock price to over $700 a share, an eightfold increase since its IPO three years ago.
