Video: The truly spectacular process of how the best chef's knife in the world is made

Made of stacked melted meteorite that looks more like Thor’s hammer and armed with the encyclopedic knowledge of knives and stunning skill from bladesmith Bob Kramer, these chef Kramer knives are among the finest in the world. This video of him, by Anthony Bourdain’s Raw Craft, features his process and it might be the… »9/02/15 6:18pmToday 6:18pm

This is the only mushroom in the world that tastes sweet like honey

In Hungary there is a sweet Hungarian truffle that supposedly tastes like honey. I can’t even begin to imagine how fantastic that is because truffles are already “the diamonds of the kitchen” and honey very well might be nature’s greatest creation, so combining both in one is practically unfair. The truffle is used in… »9/02/15 4:25pmToday 4:25pm

Cool short film teases what happens to Boba Fett after Star Wars

Boba Fett is supposed to get his own Star Wars Anthology film that focuses on the origins of everyone’s favorite bounty hunter but I think I’d much rather watch this version made by Eric Demeusy that shows Boba Fett escaping sarlacc with the help of the Slave I and then moving on to whoever knows where, in some sort… »9/02/15 11:08amToday 11:08am

Can you solve this classic riddle about crossing a bridge?

Riddles can be fun but can also be really stressful when you start to feel your decently well-wrinkled brain shrivel into a prune. But hey! Tease the brain and the satisfaction of solving it outweighs the unnecessary stress added to your life, right? Right! Here’s the classic bridge riddle in animated form from Ted-Ed »9/02/15 10:22amToday 10:22am

A container ship traveling around the ocean at night is one of the most beautiful things

I literally gasped in disbelief when I first saw this timelapse by Toby Smith of the Gunhilde Maersk at sea. It goes from Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam to Ningbo, China and the night scenes are unbelievable. The skies are salted with glittery stars and the lights of the port cities paint the horizon in a sort of… »9/02/15 9:08amToday 9:08am

Video: This completely mirrored world is so trippy to see

Sometimes the world in this video by Joe Pease is mirrored horizontally, like a city folding itself on top of itself. Other times, it’s mirrored vertically, like in perfect symmetry. But what makes the video even more mind bending than seeing a world mirrored is seeing how certain people are able to break it and… »9/01/15 4:59pmYesterday 4:59pm

A perfectly skinned watermelon looks so hilariously ridiculous

Since a watermelon looks like it’s ripped off the screen of like a Super Mario Bros video game and is wonderful at exploding because of its red flesh and is even more excellent at housing molten aluminum, it very probably is the world’s funnest fruit to play with. Here’s another fun trick you can do with ol’ mellie:… »9/01/15 12:21pmYesterday 12:21pm

Mad genius creates a crazy super drone flying machine using 54 propellers

Man can’t fly but with the help of 54 drone propellers and an umbrella to protect the ol’ noggin, man can kind of fly. This mad genius made what he calls, The Swarm, which is essentially a lawn chair strapped to some metal bars and 54 counter-rotation propellers and six grouped control channels with Hobbyking… »9/01/15 11:21amYesterday 11:21am

Hilarious video does the impossible and turns Joffrey into the hero of Game of Thrones

Joffrey is such a despicable character on Game of Thrones with such a punchable face and hateful personality that it’s pretty much impossible to make him look good. And yet! This video by Blood Blitz Comedy tries its hardest to re-edit the show to make Joffrey look like the true hero he could have been if he wasn’t… »9/01/15 10:06amYesterday 10:06am

Daredevil kid rides a train while on top of the roof of the train

Taking the train is my favorite form of transportation because unlike a car, I don’t have to drive or get stuck in traffic and unlike an airplane, I don’t have to go through security and be crammed in impossibly tiny spaces. But I only like it when I’m inside the train. This kid, who’s completely nuts and probably has… »8/31/15 6:37pmMonday 6:37pm

Cute animation video explains how smart dolphins actually are

We always hear that dolphins are smart but how smart are they actually? Lori Marino explains for Ted-Ed in this cute animation and it’s almost stunning how intelligent they are. Their encephalization quotient (brain size to body size) is second only to us dumb humans and goes into detail how they can pass down… »8/31/15 4:48pmMonday 4:48pm

Past and future look exactly the same in this post-apocalyptic western

In the post-apocalyptic future depicted in this short film there are no smartphones, computers, or octopus-shaped robots trying to destroy what’s left of humanity. Here, people live like they used to in the Wild West. They ride horses, wear funny hats, and are well aware that their life is worth less than the bullet… »8/31/15 1:34pmMonday 1:34pm

Video: The point of view shots from films by the Coen brothers

The Coen brothers are true filmmakers who employ a certain amount of mastery and art and variety to their work that few directors can match. Joel and Ethan Coen are so good at what they do that they can make any sort of film all sorts of watchable. Here’s something that could connect their movies stylistically though:… »8/31/15 10:47amMonday 10:47am

These blooming daisies are so cute they almost look like an animation

Because I’m a human who was once a child that read The Giving Tree and an adult who enjoys Pixar movies, it’s always fun to imagine things to have personalities when they clearly do not. Like these blooming daisies filmed by Neil Bromhall. They burst with such emotion that I first hoped it was some adorable animated… »8/31/15 9:34amMonday 9:34am

A substance so sensitive it immediately explodes on the lightest touch

Boom! Even if a feather dropped on or a mosquito landed on or like a heavy piece of dust managed to get on top of nitrogen triiodide, an immediate dark purple explosion happens. It’s because nitrogen triiodide is so unstable that it detonates when it’s disturbed, even slightly. Here’s it firing off in slow motion. »8/28/15 4:22pmFriday 4:22pm
