Terrifying great white shark attacking a cage is like real life Jaws

Oh. My. Holy. Bananas. This shark attack video from Hillary Rae shows an 11 and a half foot shark biting and gnawing and trying to rip open an underwater cage with such fury and abandon and ferocity that it looks like the killer beast might actually break through. You get an up close view of the razor sharp teeth and… » 7/02/15 10:28am Thursday 10:28am

This giant hole water vortex will probably flush the world away

This is a crazy overhead view of a giant intake vortex at Denison Dam in Lake Texoma, one of the largest reservoirs in the US on the border of Texas and Oklahoma. The water in the reservoir got a little bit too high, so it was drained like a bathtub. A giant bathtub, that is. I wouldn’t be surprised if the giant water… » 6/25/15 1:02pm 6/25/15 1:02pm

Seeing waves crash from underneath the ocean is so hypnotizing

Everything about waves crashing—it is water smacking itself—is violent. But that’s because we see it from the surface. Underneath, seeing waves crest and fall is a hypnotizing, almost peaceful phenomenon. The way the sunlight hits the giant water prisim and the way the waves roll on top of you and gently ripples the… » 6/24/15 1:11pm 6/24/15 1:11pm

Video: The breathtaking star-like beauty of a giant squid giving birth

If you ever wondered what a giant squid giving birth looks like (why would you think about that?), just look up at the night sky one day. Because watching a female squid lay eggs looks stunningly celestial. Watch as she lays thousands of eggs in the ocean that seem to glow underwater like she’s giving birth to stars. » 6/15/15 9:43am 6/15/15 9:43am

Slow motion video of a dry ice bomb exploding in water is pure awesome

Well, I didn’t expect that. When you throw dry ice inside a water bottle and then throw that water bottle in a pool, the explosion of the dry ice bomb is so epic that you can see it pulsate as it rips through the water. The Backyard Scientist shows off what it looks like in slow motion and man, is it powerful. » 6/12/15 10:31am 6/12/15 10:31am

Video: Kayaking down waterfalls is just pure crazy

I don’t know if this is kayaking or more like plummeting water torture punishment. Because though I see a kayak and a paddle and a human, the first person GoPro footage is just pure chaos that alternates between your worst nightmares of drowning and your worst nightmares of falling. I’m sure these guys are talented… » 6/04/15 12:41pm 6/04/15 12:41pm

Launching a rocket underneath ice is always shatteringly great

I wouldn’t exactly advise everyone to try this when winter comes along again but I’d definitely say that launching a rocket underneath an icy lake is a very not bad way to spend like the forty seventh cold and boring winter day. It’s a little more spectacular than throwing boiling water in the air to watch it freeze,… » 6/03/15 6:51pm 6/03/15 6:51pm

An entire sea filled with jellyfish is always scarily beautiful

We’ve seen the Jellyfish Lake in Palau before, but man if it’s not one of the most stunning places in the world. There are million of jellyfishes in the water and even when you see this video and know that it’s completely real, your brain automatically forces itself to believe that it’s CGI and fake. » 6/01/15 11:23am 6/01/15 11:23am

What happens when you pour water on an oil fire in slow motion

Really bad things happen. Though everyone should know this, here’s a lovely slow motion video reminder on what happens when you pour water onto an oil fire in an attempt to put it out: the fire gets even crazier because the water vaporizes into steam which expands causing it to spit out the oil which makes the flames… » 5/26/15 10:42pm 5/26/15 10:42pm

Swimming with a million fish looks like being in a teleportation tunnel

I’m not exactly sure I know what a teleportation tunnel actually is but I’d imagine it would look a lot like this. This being swimming with a million silverside fish in the ocean. It’s beautiful, like traveling through organic warp speed or being a part of a swarm from a sci-fi movie that’s about to swallow you or… » 4/23/15 2:02pm 4/23/15 2:02pm

Awesomely cute 9-month-old baby surfs with his dad for the first time

Before you sic the No Fun Federation of Parenting onto Jorge Tirado, an awesome dad and surfer, just look at how much fun his 9-month-old baby who was apparently born for the thirst of the ocean is having. And just think about how awesome he's going to be when he grows up after having such crazy experiences. » 3/16/15 5:12pm 3/16/15 5:12pm

Rally drivers escape from flooding car in claustrophobic video 

Driver Ott Tanak and his co-pilot Raigo Molder crashed on a river during the Mexico leg of the FIA World Rally Championship. Fortunately, they could escape before the water flooded the car completely. This insane video, shot from a camera place in the back seat, depicts pretty graphically one of my worst nightmares. » 3/12/15 9:22am 3/12/15 9:22am

Beautiful drone footage shows a bunch of dolphins surfing for fun

Dolphins are super smart and like other smart mammals (humans, most of the time), they sometimes do stuff for absolutely no reason other than to have fun. Take these dolphins, there's probably like 50 of them waiting for the waves to come and when it does, they all ride it like gleeful little spring breakers. » 3/11/15 1:16pm 3/11/15 1:16pm

Watch a super hydrophobic knife cut through a water droplet

Black magic and sorcery and deals with the devil and breaks in The Matrix and possibly other dimensions. That's what super hydrophobic material is made out of. Like this super hydrophobic knife that just slices through a water droplet and cuts it in two. Are we really sure science can explain what my eyes are seeing? » 1/30/15 7:26pm 1/30/15 7:26pm

Bill Gates shows us the future drinking a glass of water made from poop

Bill Gates loves the Janicki Omniprocessor, an amazing machine that turns human waste into electricity and drinkable water. He saw it and he is extremely impressed. So impressed in fact that he drank from a glass of water that was human poop only five minutes earlier. "It's water," he said, obviously relieved. » 1/07/15 11:34am 1/07/15 11:34am
