Cast Iron Fish

0

Did you know that in the Victorian era, elaborate cast iron fish tanks were all the rage among the nobility?  I didn’t.  I assumed fish tanks, because of the glass, plastic, electricity, and silicone necessary were a relatively recent commodity.  I would be wrong.  Tropical Fish Magazine has a detailed write up on what went … Continued

It’s Just Hotdogs

Being sneaked into people’s pockets.  The guy is quite fun to watch.  I love the PG attitude he has throughout.  Too often now people curse in the videos that otherwise don’t really warrant it. {reddit}

The Winter Marblympics

0

The Qualification rounds for the 2018 Winter Marblympics are on.  So far there are 2 events, Snow race and Curling.  Unlike Curling in real life, the Marblelympic version was quite boring.  Like the Summer games, this looks like it’s on track for a very fun filled series of events, and if the snow race was … Continued

Russia != Olympics

0

Earlier this week the International Olympic Committee decided to ban Russia from the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.  This is sad news for a variety of reasons. None of them will come off as good, or nice, but it’s terrible to make the entire group of athletes pay for the sins of a few.  … Continued

Anvil Shooting

Honestly, I’m not 100% sure how I found this video.  Once you watch it though you will realize why I posted it.  It’s frekin insane the sound that happens.  Who knew there was a world record for anvil shooting?

So Many Faucets

0

Seriously, who knew that the lonely faucet had so many new ways to operate?  If you don’t believe me, search for “faucet” on Yanko Design, (or just click that link).  At the time of this writing, there’s 13 pages worth.  Sure, some of them are stupid crazy things, but some are actually pretty neat. This … Continued

Creepy Abandoned Hotels

Igloo City is my favorite one on the list.  Yes I have a soft spot in my heart for Alaska, I think it’s one of the most exotic ones because of it’s weird look.  It also looks like it was just abandoned.  Some of the others in the list are truly abandoned, and look like … Continued
