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. You feel like a complete idiot with your mouth open until you see it. And even then, you're not completely sure it's not sorcery. » 8/20/14 12:31am 8/20/14 12:31am

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. Another look would make me think it's the motorcyclist who has to jump over that plane. Or maybe it's the random guy crouching down… » 6/10/14 10:08pm 6/10/14 10:08pm

This colorful image disappears completely if you keep staring at it

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. They're so good at throwing multiple random objects in the air and then catching it perfectly that they must be able to use their minds to control inanimate objects. Or be… » 2/05/14 8:13pm 2/05/14 8:13pm

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. Because, well, there's nothing cooler (or more out there) than scraping your noggin' on the street while going well past the reasonable speed… » 1/23/14 7:30pm 1/23/14 7:30pm

World's first front flip forward bike flip trick is a real spin cycle

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

Insane bike trick seems to murder the laws of physics

We no longer live on Earth, my friends. We're in some weird world where people can do the impossible. Do you want to fly? You should try. Do you want to spin in the air in both directions?
