The magic of writing on water with a fountain pen

I love to watch someone write with a fountain pen. It tickles my neck to hear the strokes and see the trail it leaves. This video, however, shows a fountain pen writing a little differently. It's writing with water. It's like magic seeing the ink of the fountain pen instantly flow through the capillaries of the water. » 12/17/14 10:26pm Wednesday 10:26pm

Every commercial should have a beautiful horse running in slow motion

What's going on with this year's water commercials? All of a sudden, they are all epic and beautifully shot. Not that I'm complaining, I'm totally fine with that. In fact, I'm sure people would pay more attention to advertising if the average commercial was as visually powerful and interesting as this one. » 11/27/14 8:14am 11/27/14 8:14am

Playing around with a water bubble in space must never get old

I'm happy when I see astronauts happy. There's something about seeing people in space enjoy all there is about space that's just infectious. Even the little things, like playing around with a giant water bubble blob. I mean, I would do the same thing they're doing. Let it swallow my hands while a GoPro is inside. » 11/05/14 8:58pm 11/05/14 8:58pm

Swimming in an iceberg is like being inside the Fortress of Solitude

Swimming inside an iceberg looks amazing because the ice looks like glass and that's crazy, and because it kind of resembles an underwater version of Superman's Fortress of Solitude. Or at least, like a crystal palace. National Geographic shows us how a free diver explores the ice cold waters below. » 10/20/14 8:42pm 10/20/14 8:42pm

Drag boat racing shoots up an awesome wall of water behind it

These boats racing against each other pack nearly 8,000 horsepower and can hit speeds of 260mph. Basically, they're really, really fast. But what's even cooler is what the boats leave in their wake, a perfect wall of water that shoots out and up into the sky. It's like they're tearing the water apart. » 10/16/14 10:37pm 10/16/14 10:37pm

I can't believe this underwater film was made without special effects

This underwater video is impossibly surreal but the makers of the video, Francisco and Armando del Rosario and Armiche Ramos, say that no computer special effects were used in the video, just some camera tricks to make it look like the ocean world can be sideways and water can be walked upside down on. » 9/25/14 12:34am 9/25/14 12:34am

These walking fish raised out of water on land help explain evolution

We know that hundreds of millions of years ago that fish left the water and eventually evolved into land animals. But what if we could see it happen right now? We sort of can. Scientists are raising fish to survive outside of water and to walk on land and they're changing right before our eyes. » 8/27/14 11:47pm 8/27/14 11:47pm

Surfing a never ending wave is like being stuck in a blender of fun

The barrel never ends, or at least that's what it feels like. When you think it's finally going to come crashing down, surfer Benji Brand goes through another water tunnel and keeps going and going. It's like a never ending wave where you can see everything spin around you and you never have to stop. » 7/30/14 9:47pm 7/30/14 9:47pm

Giant goliath fish punks a fisherman and then steals his fish and gun

This goliath grouper sure isn't happy about sharing the waters with us humans. It grumpily swims over to the man spearfishing, intimidates him with a little head butt and then steals the fish he caught. Even worse, he took the guy's gun for a little joy ride. It's like stealing someone's date right in front of them. » 7/29/14 11:29pm 7/29/14 11:29pm
