Since most of us uncoordinated plebeians will never be able to even stand up on a surfboard, this is very probably the closest we’ll ever get to the unbelievable beauty that is riding through the barrel of the wave.
Where does gold come from? The answer: space, basically. Supernovae, specifically. Alchemy, sort of. So gold doesn’t actually originate from the core of Earth but actually from a star explosion that showers the universe with debris and well, gold.
The Lockheed U-2 Dragon Lady is a beautiful spy plane that flies at high altitudes (70,000 feet in the air) to provide reconnaissance for the military.
Here’s a totally enthralling stop-motion animation that completely mesmerized me but also made me feel a little weird, to be honest.
No one has as much fun making crazy inventions or real life versions of weapons from pop culture we dream about than Colin Furze.
A tuxedo, a martini, and a gun. Good looks, charm, and always so impossibly cool. That’s James Bond. Also James Bond: a dude who totally abuses his license to kill and offs a lot of people in his movies.
This fantastic short by Terri Timely and Park Pictures completely bends your mind because everyday tasks—like, putting toothpaste on your tooth brush—become something completely different and weird and almost abstract—like, the toothpaste becoming a flame thrower.
You can spend an entire lifetime learning how to do something and I’m pretty sure you still won’t be as good as or as confident as this butcher chopping down chickens with a bandsaw.
What’s your favorite Batmobile? They all have their own charm, don’t they? The Tumbler was brute force bicep flexing whilst kissing bad ass.
Oh, nothing to see here. Just two F-18 fighter jets sitting there, looking cool... while a giant wall of fire blazes on behind them.
Hell. Pain. Agony. Anger. Madness. To the point where you just start punching your steering wheel and try to rip off your car’s roof and scream until your forehead and neck veins burst and then cry like a crazy person.
I can only accept two reasons as for how this drawing of an egg—yes, a drawing—looks like it actually cracks as an artist continues drawing: our eyes are pitiful things that cannot be trusted at all or the artist is a magician.
This is behind the scenes footage from some commercial that Hyundai shot that basically toured the world.
Here’s really cool footage of a Swedish Saab JAS-39 Gripen fighter jet landing on a road in Finland. The Aviationist says both Finnish and Swedish aircraft were conducting a military force exercise at the Rovaniemi Air Base and on the strip of road.
My favorite parts of Mike Olbinski’s Monsoon II isn’t the terrifying bits where the sky turns evil dark monster and decides to pour lightning and strike water down onto the ground but when it dances around like a balletic being and then notices that we’re watching and moves its clouds so it envelopes us all.
Few people have given kids and movie watchers and just humans in general more joy than Jean-Claude Van Damme.
The same place can look different from day to night. The same scene can give off a completely different vibe if there’s stars above or if the sun is behind.
They look supernatural, don’t they. According to the The US Navy, the Blue Angels are performing a “high speed diamond break-away maneuver” at the Miramar Air Show in this photo but to me, because of the way they’re in the clouds, they’ve never looked more angelic.
Here are all the incredible rockets and space vehicles that have carried humans to space. From Gagarin to Armstrong and every space explorer in between and after, each one of those brave heroes relied on Soyuz rockets and Saturn Vs and other types of rocket to launch them into the void embrace of space.
Oh, this is great. Alexandre Dubosc made this wonderful zoetrope that uses chocolate and popcorn to animate itself.
