    This is a video of Ukrainian speed climber Danyl Boldyrev jumping up a 15-meter (49.2-foot) wall in a record-breaking 5.60 seconds. For reference, that's about twice as fast as I could even run 15-meters, and that's assuming I don't cramp or trip and get a booboo. You know ho... / Continue →

    This is Aaron Joseph Purmort's obituary in the Minneapolis Star Tribune. He wrote it himself before dying of a brain tumor at age 35. Damn, 35? That's entirely too young. Rest in peace, Aaron, and thanks for keeping the city safe for so long. Thanks to Sam S and E V I L A ... / Continue →

    This is is a video of father Mike Wilson dressed as Spider-Man surprising his son Jayden on his fifth birthday. Sadly (and because life isn't fair in the least), Jayden was diagnosed with a Grade 4 Brain Stem Tumor and given about a year to live. *shaking fist at God* JUST A... / Continue →

    This is a video of Spider Man parkour-ing his arachnid face off all over town. He's jumping off buildings, climbing things, doing flips and barrel rolls -- you name it. "Does he hang upside-down and kiss Kirsten Dunst in the rain?" No. But there are plenty of slow-motion cr... / Continue →

    This is a video of some pro free-climber scaling the side of a building. After a couple attempts of of making a long jump to the next handhold and sliding back down, he goes inverted and pulls out this Spider Man move. Is that common? Because it doesn't look like it. Man, I... / Continue →

    This is the Spider Man 'webslinger' built by Patrick Priebe of Laser Gadgets. Except instead of shooting actual webs it uses a little coilgun to shoots darts. It looks dangerous, and there is no doubt in my mind I'd find a way to shoot myself in the hand and/or face trying to... / Continue →

    Illustrator Joe Butcher (aka October Jones) has started spending his daily commute drawing cartoon heads on Post-Its and holding them up to his fellow riders. Me? I put in my earbuds and pretend to be dead. He does a great job, I'm just not sure how I'd feel if I were the on... / Continue →
