To cap off their freshman year at the Naval Academy, hundreds of plebes try to scale the greased down Herndon Monument to replace the hat on top of the 21-foot tall obelisk. It’s a fun tradition that teaches teamwork and caps off a hard year—but it looks oh so ridiculous to see so many shirtless human bodies…
YES. If you don’t remember the crazy bananas movie that was Kung Fury, go and watch the trailer again. You’ll see a completely over the top preview that includes Kung Fu, dinosaurs, DeLoreans, time travel, killing Hitler, Vikings and more. It was glorious. Now the entire movie is online for free to watch on YouTube.
This is completely absurd but Nicolas Deveaux’s 5 Mètres 80 is so fun that it doesn’t really matter. A group of giraffes raid a pool and start jumping off the high dive while doing tricks. It’s all CGI but the giraffes look so realistic that I can’t help but imagine the alternate reality that this is happening…
Today, when you are thinking about how much it sucks to work on some boring project in your office's cubicle, look at this photo of this (sweating) man working while being watched by (an annoyed and tired) Kim Jong Un and rejoice that you are not him. Something bad is going to happen here, folks.
Is shaving the best way to remove hair? Mehdi Sadaghdar emphatically answers yes after performing stunts for this video. He hilariously tries crazy alternative hair removal methods—burning it off and electrocuting it off, for example—and decides that shaving is so much easier than any other way.
I don't where people come up with the ideas to do these things sober but if you were ever wondering what the the Guinness World Record for world's longest golf club was, the answer is 14-feet 5-inches. Karsten Maas from Denmark used the club to drive the ball about 180 yards.
Here's all the proof you need that America is a wonderful land where any dream can come true: a place exists in Texas where two lowriders bounce up and down and ridiculously fight each other. I mean, this is better than BattleBots.
Wolf of Wall Street? Meh. American Hustle? Please. Anchorman 2? Tired. The Hobbit? I dare you. None of those movies in theaters right now compare to the epic awesomeness that is Kung Fury. Never heard of it? It's okay. Just watch the trailer. It combines all the cheesy glory of 80's cop movies with Kung Fu, killing…
Visions of the future from the past always serve as an endless source of comedy. Look how dumb we were! Look how silly those people look! Look! Look! It's completely true. Our imaginations of the future are rooted in the limits of today which typically makes it an awful thought exercise. So in a few years, we'll look…
Amazon Prime Air's drones are plagued with practical problems that would make them inviable in urban environments for the foreseeable future. What about Amazon Rockets? They're only a bit more ludicrous.
It seems that nothing is wrong with this Boeing Dreamlifter, standing by at Jabara Airport, in Wichita, Kansas. Except that's not the airport this airplane was supposed to be and, worse, its runway may be too small for it to take off.
Here's Lady Gaga floating over a stage in a ridiculously cool and absurd flying dress made with fiberglass and six propellers. It's a world's first—just like her steak dress. She calls it Volantis.
It's intentionally obnoxious but this video goes through all the ridiculously dangerous ways a person can open a bottle of wine. I'm talking about chainsaws, guns, rockets, blow torches, swords and more. I think my personal favorite is cracking open a bottle with the torch. Followed closely by chainsaw. […
Business cards have become more of a hassle in a time when contact details can be shared electronically. But one company has chosen to ignore this obvious trend with a luxury card that tells people you're an arrogant ass.
Hospitals are already so ridiculously overpriced that I'm surprised I'm even surprised about this but according to a new father, a hospital in Boston quoted him $23,000 for a circumcision procedure for his son.
A 91-year old Grandma is selling $60 suicide kits over the Internet. The kit is rather basic actually, it's a large plastic bag with an elastic band opening and a slot for a plastic tube to be inserted. The tube is supposed to be connected to a helium tank and then pumped into the bag. Helium, when inhaled in its pure…
This is the Code-38 Pro Stealth, also known as the $410 corkscrew. Four hundred and ten dollars make for "a complete blend of blasted textures and vaporized titanium based finishes" that opens bottles and uncorks wine. Which is fucking ridiculous.
A group of artists kidnapped a Ronald McDonald statue and staged a spoof Al Qaeda-style hostage YouTube video. Their demands? That McDonald's answer questions on how it produces their food. If the questions were not answered, Ronald McDonald would be executed.
It's probably smart and necessary to teach your children self-defense. The world is crazy scary! But it's probably dumb and unnecessary to buy them a Kick Dummy so they can practice kneeing perps in the nuts. The world is scary crazy!
