NATO's biggest military exercise since the Cold War is scary impressive

Wow. This totally looks like the beginning of World War III but thankfully it’s just Operation Trident Juncture, a military exercise by NATO. But not just any old exercise, it’s the biggest military exercise NATO has done in decades and one that required 36,000 troops and more than 140 aircraft and 60 ships from over… »11/10/15 4:20pm11/10/15 4:20pm


Breathtaking helicopter footage of cities around the world

This is behind the scenes footage from some commercial that Hyundai shot that basically toured the world. I have no idea what the final commercial looks like and I don’t really care because I’m totally obsessed with this truly spectacular footage they got of cities around the world from the vantage point of a… »10/07/15 4:40pm10/07/15 4:40pm

Creepy body painting makes it look like you can see the guts and bones of a hand

It starts off a little cartoonish but then it quickly turns creepy and almost squeamish as the hand starts to legitimately look like it’s been sliced to expose the blood, guts, and bones. Luckily, for us and for Natalie Nakles, the artist who did this, it’s only the work of markers, pens, and clever camera angles.… »8/26/15 8:40pm8/26/15 8:40pm

Incredible overhead view of an oil tanker perfectly docking at a narrow port

The captain of this ship must be a master Tetris player or a savant when it comes to that time wasting iPhone parking game or at least, be the inventor of the three-point turn because his maneuvering of this tanker, the Galway Fisher, into the narrow Port of Galway is simply incredible to see from up top. »8/21/15 11:46am8/21/15 11:46am

An entire sea filled with jellyfish is always scarily beautiful

We’ve seen the Jellyfish Lake in Palau before, but man if it’s not one of the most stunning places in the world. There are million of jellyfishes in the water and even when you see this video and know that it’s completely real, your brain automatically forces itself to believe that it’s CGI and fake. »6/02/15 12:44am6/02/15 12:44am

This super realistic glass of water is actually a drawing

I love occasionally blowing my brain up and nothing does it quite like when I see something that looks real but is actually a perfect photorealistic drawing. Take this glass of water, it’s drawn with such skill and shading and angling and plays on your perspective so well that I feel like I can reach out and take a… »5/08/15 8:27pm5/08/15 8:27pm

Chainsaw ice skating looks both fun and insanely dangerous

When I saw this video of Swedish skier Erik Sunnerheim zooming over the ice while carving with a chainsaw two thoughts popped into my mind: At first I though it was super fun and wanted to try it right away but then, all the things that could go wrong started to pile up in my brain taking the shape of a giant nope. »3/30/15 8:29pm3/30/15 8:29pm

How fighter jet pilots pass snack bars in the cockpit while flying

No one, not even these fighter pilots, can't resist a chocolate bar when the munchies strike. This video shows how the pilot in the front passes a Snickers bar to his colleague just by opening his hand and letting it float to the back of the cockpit dragged by the acceleration forces. So cool. »3/05/15 8:56am3/05/15 8:56am

The craziest Russian climber is back with more gonad-shriveling photos

Our favorite Crazy Ivan is back with more photos: Kirill Oreshkin is one of the few people who can make me panic by just looking at his photos climbing onto any building or structure without any safety measures whatsoever. And then hanging there all calm, as if he were just having tea and biscuits. »2/03/15 9:32pm2/03/15 9:32pm
