Watching an unsuspecting victim get nailed in the nuts by a paint chopped in half by a guillotine is everything you could possibly want in a YouTube video—dramatics, destruction, pain, humor born out of sadness, the element of surprise.
One of the best things about the weekly Show Me Your Nerd show on Facebook Live is getting to actually touch priceless comics and other nerd paraphernalia. I’ve laid hands on the pen strokes of Jack Kirby and watched Amy Reeder’s noted two-handed drawing style in person. And then today, I saw a man open a long box of…
Everything is usually way cooler in slow-motion. An amazing football catch, a kick-ass movie fight scene, a gravity-defying skateboard trick—but apparently that logic doesn’t apply to some dude sticking his tongue in a loaded mouse trap. If you don’t cringe in horror when watching this, then you’re not human.
When YouTube arrived at the beginning of this millennium, viral videos were not so different from what had long entertained us on America's Funniest Home Videos: adorable pets, funny kids, and painful accidents. And so we have faceplant gifs and faceplant supercuts and now, a scientific journal article based on a…
Siena is a lioness who recently got severely mauled by a buffalo. It's so bad that looking at her standing up with her leg almost ripped off her body looks like a surreal scene from a zombie movie. Happily, the vets rushed to save her life so she could take care of her cubs. WARNING: VERY STRONG IMAGES.
When you get swallowed by the waves of the biggest sea monster in the world (also known as the wonderful ocean), there's not much you can do but protect your head and hope you know which way is up. It's like being trapped inside a water tornado. This footage, captured by pro surfer Mark Healey, shows the exact feeling…
Photographer Chase Jarvis took his DJI Phantom (MSRP: $680) on a trip to Iceland and decided to experiment using it with a dope Sony RX100 II (MSRP: $750) strapped in for the ride. Yes! Experimentation is great! But, um, if you’re going to try out a new toy in harsh conditions, maybe don’t do it over freezing cold…
Who knew that one of the easiest superhero powers to get (at least on a neutered, pathetic human scale) is the Human Torch's Flame On power? If you're Russian and/or drink a lot of vodka, you can use a hot wire and a debauched sense of pain to create fire with your bare hands. Just pour fuel on the ground, hold a hot…
Why does a security guard at a baseball game need a helmet? Here's one reason: So he can barely flinch when a stray ball slams right into his skull.
You probably don't need another reason to avoid buying cheap knock-off electronics on the street or eBay. But in case you were tempted by a surprisingly sweet deal on a neck massager, here's an important PSA to stay clear of them.
The chances of me getting eaten by a shark while surfing are slim. The chances of me getting pounded by a wave while surfing, that happens all the time. Fortunately I've never had a wipeout as bad as the guys in this video.
Yesterday, when I wrote about Made To Pleasure's "design your own sex toy" website, I didn't even ask for readers to create their own and paste them in the comments. But they did. And jeepers-creepers are they hilarious:
Sh*t My Kids Ruined, a self-explanatory site if ever there was one, advertises itself as "the strongest visual birth control on the market today." Rightly so! Here's a sampling of what those little monsters have done to your precious gadgets:
How's that for a photo? In the video after the jump, you can see him hit the ground pretty hard after getting shot in the back. What say you: inappropriate use of force or what he had coming to him?
What happens when a dude gets kicked in the hangin' brains by an MMA fighter and American Gladiator? Well, when he's a crazy "combat expert" who's taken hundreds of nutshots, not what you think.
My childhood was active enough. I was as fearless as any toddler. I frolicked in the mud and climbed on now-banned metal jungle gyms. I was rambunctious. Then I met the pajamas with the feet.
Yikes. The Canadian province of Alberta called in 400 of its police tasers for a study on their effectiveness, and what did they find? Over 10% unleash more voltage than they should.
