In an effort to celebrate Australia Day—a holiday in which the nation apparently likes to risk life and limb for a little fun—a bunch of Aussies realized that the ride on a Slip ‘N Slide is always way too short.

Who knew a crappy T-rex costume we once all dumped on would turn out to be one of the best things to happen to the internet?

Every year Paul Borrud builds a massive homebrew Slip N Slide to help celebrate Australia Day, which falls on January 26. (Remember, it’s summer there.)

Summer is coming—and it’s going to be an incredibly, absurdly hot one for America. Except in two states.
If not left docked at a marina or cottage, a trailer is a necessary accessory for hauling a jet ski out to the lake. But what if you could instead squeeze into the trunk of your car? That’s the dream this inflatable Sea-Doo realizes—if only it weren’t sized for children.
