This whole timelapse video, Patagonia 8K by Timestorm Films, is totally worth watching in its entirety just to see the landscapes of southern Chile and Argentina but I especially enjoy the clip right above where the scattered clouds dance and merge together to form a dense layer that completely blocks out the sky.
Need to have fun on a boring summer day? Get a bunch of tennis balls, drench ‘em in gasoline, put some wet gloves on and then torch the balls.
The colors! The colors! Holy cow, the colors. The world destroyer that is the red hot nickel ball got put to task on floral foam and the result is an awesome burn through that unleashes so many colors and then creates scales and pretty much topples the entire foam tower.
There are few job descriptions (hell, the job description is in the job title) as terrifying as being a firefighter.
Robbie Maddison has ridden the mad offspring of a dirt bike and a surfboard over the waves of Tahiti and into eternal glory.
Being an engineer isn’t usually associated with being a bad ass. In fact, it’s probably one of the gigs furthest from badassery!
This video is titled ‘Granular Satisfaction’ and there’s really no better way to explain it. A mound of sugar disappearing into the vortex that is a cappuccino is so satisfying.
Photographer Phoo Chan captured this perfect sequence of a Northern Harrier tossing prey to one of its baby chick hawks in midair.
Here’s a really cool video that’s a little bit trippy and a lot of bit fun. A car and a fleet of quadcopter drones are outfitted with lights and then made to dance and spin and move around while a camera captures them.
It’s only a month since the the European Space Agency lofted its Sentinel-2A satellite started beaming back images from space —but it’s already producing some amazing images, like this one of Libya.
Since we’re limited by our own perspective, every story can always be told differently. People see things differently.
There are swords that are on fire, swords made in fire and now, swords that are made of fire. The Backyard Scientist created this “fire saber” which is basically a seltzer bottle that spits out a stream of butane which lights on fire with a lighter.
Waking up is hard. Anybody who can just get straight up in the morning cannot be trusted. For the rest of us, we make do with phones and alarm clocks and snoozing and coffee and showers and jobs that pay us to not be late.
It’s not even the blast from the cannon of the M1128 Stryker that scares me the most (though it is a very impressive blast).
Here’s a really great shot of a US marine cleaning the tilt rotors of a MV-22B Osprey. Seeing the rotors this close and seeing the marine get dwarfed by them and then not being able to see the rest of the aircraft makes it seem as if the rotors are connected to a monster of a machine.
Mind of a Chef is one of the best shows about food on television right now and this upcoming season they’re going to feature Gabrielle Hamilton from Prune in New York City.
Tom Cruise is crazy. And not crazy in the jump on couches and shoot lightning bolts crazy but legitimately a crazy person because he has the boulders to do his own stunts.
Birds being able to fly is Mother Nature’s ploy to make us all jealous. There are few cooler abilities in the real world.
Sandwiches are the reason why happiness is possible. Why being optimistic pays off. Why lending a helping hand is worth it.
Most humans can’t sing. But that doesn’t stop them from belting out songs in the shower or whistling a tune in traffic or drunkenly grabbing the mic during karoake.
