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 Yesterday 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.

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

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 12/17/14 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

Seeing surfers at 1000 FPS is like watching a sea monster swallow people

If you're not convinced that the ocean isn't just one giant sea monster, here is some evidence for your fantasy theory: this video of surfers surfing at 1000 FPS.

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
