Daredevil walks on a narrow beam over a 900-foot tall giant hole

The 900-foot deep hole is actually a 900-foot tall giant chimney which actually makes this stunt even crazier because Flaviu Cernescu, the daredevil strolling over the hole, actually has to free solo climb the entire thing before he can walk. It's like risking your life only to risk your life even more. » 11/26/14 6:34pm Wednesday 6:34pm

Video: Turning a nail into a tiny sword looks like a lot of silly fun

You could hammer a nail into a wall or something but why not hammer a nail and turn it into a tiny sword? That's right. It's a completely silly exercise that could also be a half-commentary on creating useless objects but it also looks like a lot of fun to actually do too. Plus, it makes for a nice drink stirrer. » 11/25/14 7:36pm Tuesday 7:36pm

Underwater monster captured on video for the first time ever

This sea creature may look like some scary 3D animation of an underwater monster but it's not. It's completely real. What you're looking at is a deep sea anglerfish known as the Black Seadevil.

Making metal framed eyeglasses looks like a fun lab experiment

I'm pretty sure the only time I prefer the look and feel of plastic over metal is with the frames of glasses. I just like acetate frames more. But! The process of making metal frames, like these pair of metal MYKITA glasses, is so interesting that I may need to get a pair. It's like watching scientists in a lab… » 11/24/14 8:38pm Monday 8:38pm

The solitude of space exploration should be turned into a tablet game

There might not be anything more awesome than going to space. It's an incredible achievement and the idea of exploring the unknown is fascinating. But as this short animation called Solus by Zac Dixon for Identity Visuals shows, it can get quite lonely. Watch it, it's nearly as good as any feature. » 11/21/14 11:51pm 11/21/14 11:51pm

Watching this Kaiseki chef putting food on plates gives me goosebumps

Food all goes down the same but there's so much beauty in food and each ingredient that chefs like Niki Nakayam of Los Angeles Japanese Kaiseki restaurant n/naka turn the idea of putting plate of food into an art form. You're no longer eating protein and vegetables, but edible art on a plate. » 11/20/14 10:52pm 11/20/14 10:52pm

Watching grandmas smoke weed for the first time is so great

When you combine three nice things like grandmas and weed and doing something for the first time, well, you get something wonderful. Watch as three grandmas smoke weed for the first time and hang out with them as they get high. They laugh, they get the munchies, they don't always make sense and they want to smoke more. » 11/19/14 11:26pm 11/19/14 11:26pm
