Kristin Carnage was making her way through a city in World of Warcraft when a stranger stopped her female avatar. The stranger, a male avatar, opened a trade window with Carnage and moved, in her words, “a ton of gold” in his section of the trade box. For a while afterward, he offered to help run her through content…
Wow. This totally looks like the beginning of World War III but thankfully it’s just Operation Trident Juncture, a military exercise by NATO. But not just any old exercise, it’s the biggest military exercise NATO has done in decades and one that required 36,000 troops and more than 140 aircraft and 60 ships from over…
When I finally get my stupid time machine working (it keeps liquefying the squirrels I use to test it) I think one of my first post-Hitler-murder trips will be to Volkswagen in the 1970s to convince them to build an version of the Type 181 (we called it the Thing) that can go in the water. Let me explain why.
The captain of this ship must be a master Tetris player or a savant when it comes to that time wasting iPhone parking game or at least, be the inventor of the three-point turn because his maneuvering of this tanker, the Galway Fisher, into the narrow Port of Galway is simply incredible to see from up top.
Do you need a stuffed companion for race weekends, but are deeply disappointed that Puffalumps have been discontinued for years? Never you fear! Now you can buy Danica Patrick's dog. Seriously. That's her dog Dallas as a cuddly stuffed pet.
So, apparently people jumping in front of cars and feigning injuries for money is a thing. But now, tough times have befallen these con artists, thanks to the fact that video cameras are literally everywhere.
The guys at AtomCentral uploaded this video depicting the failed test of the Atlas missile back in 1961. The footage—scanned to HD from the original film—shows the rocket exploding in an epic and mesmerizing slow motion that would make Michael Bay drool.
No one, not even these fighter pilots, can't resist a chocolate bar when the munchies strike. This video shows how the pilot in the front passes a Snickers bar to his colleague just by opening his hand and letting it float to the back of the cockpit dragged by the acceleration forces. So cool.
Scientists at the University of Rochester have created a metal that is so extremely hydrophobic that the water bounces on it as if it were repelled by a magic force field. Instead of using chemical coatings they used lasers to etch a nanostructure on the metal itself. It will not wear off, like current less effective…
The AFP is reporting (in Spanish) about the massive bombing operation over a single ISIS flag placed on a tiny, almost nonexistent hill next to the Turkish border and the Syrian city of Kobane, which ISIS and Kurdish troops are fighting for. This video was filmed from the Turkish frontier. This is what followed.
The Bobcat S130 Skid-Steer Loader is one of the most accessible construction machines out there; it's basically an adult-sized Tonka toy for your oversized sandbox. But I don't think anybody's mastered its operation like this hero.
Afghanistan veteran Sam Arnold uploaded this spine-chilling video of a US Marine getting a direct headshot from a Taliban sniper—only to be saved by his kevlar helmet. It's incredible to watch, especially the face of relief and disbelief of the impact victim. That was a really close call.
This isn't a trailer for the next Tom Clancy movie. These are real U.S. Navy SEALs showing how they get into enemy territory from the sea. They get deployed in a mini-sub launched from a nuclear submarine. Then they get out as they approach the shore at night, ready to complete their mission.
Drew Hamilton, an Alaska Department Of Fish & Game tech, was chillin' by one of the McNeil River State Game Sanctuary's waterways when a gigantic bear came lumbering over to his campsite, sat down, hung out, and went on his way.
This spectacular multi-angle video shows Guerlain Chicherit's attempt to beat the world record for the longest car jump, which is now held by Tanner Foust at 332 feet (101 meters). Chicherit tried save a 360 feet (109.7 meter) gap between a 20-ton steel ramp and a concrete landing surface. Fortunately, he didn't die.
You probably thought you'd heard the last of Dogecoin, the meme-inspired cryptocurrency famous for, among other things, sponsoring Josh Wise's NASCAR Stock Car for one race, but nope! Now you can buy a Ferrari with it.
