    Because it's Friday and we all started drinking at lunch (we did all start drinking at lunch, right?), here's an Angry Birds wrecking ball spotted in the wild by Redditor bmorschwack. I don't know about you, but come Monday morning I'm gonna be praying I see that thing outside... / Continue →

    Please, no crane-ception jokes. This is a video from Germany of a heavy equipment manufacturer demonstrating their cranes' abilities to pick up other cranes. The tiniest one is just a model crane, but the biggest one is HUUUUGE. No clue what you'd use a crane that big to bui... / Continue →

    Personally, I'm cool with a regular door provided the lock still works and the knob can hold a sock. But for some people that just isn't enough. Enter the 'Air-Powered Star Trek Door', a door that guarantees you'll never need to put a sock on the non-existent knob. Just kidd... / Continue →

    The Sharker, despite its name, has no interest in pulling your top down and exposing your breasts in public. No, it's cool just being a monocoque motorbike and feeling the occasional butt on its supple leather seat. While most cars switched to monocoque construction (a techni... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a guy doing a bunch of tricks with a tape measure. Admittedly, he's pretty good and with a little more practice he could probably be as good as me one day. When hell is a solid sheet of ice! And speaking of ice sheets: what an Eskimo has after trying... / Continue →
