Dangerous Woodworking

0

There’s some pretty neat machines in here that mill wood, work with wood, and do all sorts of things to wood.  I like the bread cutting device 3 or 4 minutes in, that thing looks inefficient, but cool.  Cutting that giant cedar log down just off center though took forever.  It makes sense how slow … Continued

360 Tornado Footage

It’s Tornado Season.  Or it was, or it will be.  I’m never quite sure when Tornado Season actually is.  I just know that when it starts, it offers some pretty awesome videos, photos, and time-lapses of the storms as the make their way across the MidWest.  This year though is different.  It marks the beginning … Continued

Waterfall Skiing

Yes, this is as stupid as it sounds.  No, he is not successful.  No you should not try this ever.  Yes, he should rethink his life choices. Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean that you have to try and get 100% usage out of your winter equipment.  It’s perfectly reasonable to leave them sitting in … Continued

Quidditch IRL

0

Partially IRL that is.  You only have about 30 seconds to score a goal.  There’s no Golden Snitch, or Bludgers, and the first one to pull their parachute forfeits the game.  These Skydivers got in character costumes and decided to play a short game of Quidditch. I can’t find anything else about this stunt, but … Continued

POOP!

0

What is that you ask?  Why could this person possibly be floating in?  I’ll tell you, it’s poop!  Not just any poop either, concentrated poop.  Australia doesn’t process sewage with chemicals, instead they gather up all the poop and let “natural” bacteria break it down into better things.  Naturally, the poop pool is not the … Continued

Shattered Glass

This is a pretty good way to spend 10 minutes of your life.  Granted, you only really will care about parts of it.  These guys are pretty fun to watch.  I like how they showed it at normal speed, then slowly increased the frame rate.  Granted, it’s a colossal waste of perfectly good mixing jars, but … Continued

Drone Fireworks

We’re coming up on the greatest Holiday in America, the 4th of July.  What better way to celebrate than to attach Chinese made fireworks to the back of a drone and fly and shoot them at each other while drinking beer and smoking cigarettes.   America. Fuck Yea. I post this now so that you … Continued

The Wrench Knife

0

The Green Beetle proves that you can make a knife out of nearly any metal.  Above he makes a Mad Max inspired wrench knife.  That’s cool, personally, I like the steel wire knife below: This was individual pieces of metal that were forged together and welded together, and fused together.  I think that’s pretty neat. … Continued

DIY Weed Wacker

0

Let’s file this under “S” for stupid.  Yes, right up there with the DIY Circular Saw from a few weeks ago comes this impressively dangerous DIY Weed Whacker.  At least in this case the blades (which are actual blades) can actually do some damage. {reddit}

Destroying things with Electricity

0

Electricity is dangerous.  If lightning wasn’t proof enough of that, here you can watch as someone for reasons unknown (otherwise known as because I can), decided to connect 16 high capacity capacitors together.  For serious, look at the size of these things: According to math, all of these wired up in parallel like this gives 2180J … Continued
