Guy using wheel barrow to do skateboard tricks is hilariously absurd

Here's the progression of my thoughts when I first saw this video of Hä Wie using a golden wheel barrow to do skateboard tricks on the street. I thought it was so dumb. So, so stupid.

Artist speed paints a painting you can't see until the very last second

Speed painting can be purposefully misleading but it's always fun to have your brain pump in that delayed "Ohhhh" reaction once you realize what's going on.

This guy can control water by shooting vortexes with his mouth

It looks so effortless for him. And not only can freediver David Helderle blow underwater bubble rings as easily as you and I blink, he can control those mini vortexes to make fun designs and spin rings. It's like Aquaman decided to become an artist or something. » 8/09/14 12:35am 8/09/14 12:35am

Motorcycle jumps over plane that's flying sideways close to the ground

I don't know who had the hardest job in this video that stacks crazy on top of crazy. On first watch, I'd side with the pilot who's flying an airplane sideways mere feet from the ground.

It's always fun to play a trick on your eyes. They're so easily fooled! Take this illusion, for example. It's an old favorite.

These kids are so good at juggling they must be sorcerers

I don't think I am as good at anything as these guys are at juggling. Seriously, like not even walking or sleeping or eating or brushing my teeth.

Psycho human dragged his head on the ground on a motorcycle turn

Christ. An awesome lunatic wasn't happy with just dragging his knee while making a high speed motorcycle turn so he decided to lay his head and drag that on the gravel too.

These pool tricks seem like they're breaking all of Earth's magnets

I'm not sure there's an explanation for this amazing set of pool tricks other than the guy doing them, professional pool trick shot player Florian Kohler, is just impossibly good at what he does or that Kohler has somehow found a way to coax all of the magnets on Earth to bend balls however he wants so they travel… » 1/10/14 11:15pm 1/10/14 11:15pm
