This looks super painful fun!

To really appreciate the beautiful filming and the truly wild abandon of the jumpers, play this bad boy full screen in high res.

boo!Happy Halloween, Trashcan Monster! This year I think I’m going to dress up like the black kid and just instantly react to any movement around me with a punch in the face. Wife reaches for tv remote: boom, facepunch. Co-worker pushes a button on the elevator: ka-powey. Bird flys a little too close: unhesitating Shoryuken to the beak.





friday fun: back to school edition

Hope your weekend kicks as much ass as this school bus.

I’m very disappointed in America’s educational establishment for not recognizing this bus as history’s greatest “Stay in School” incentive ever. If this beast picks you up at the bus stop every morning, school is automatically going to be equated with awesome.

Witness the thrill of victory in the new sport of Speed Cup Stacking!

It’s EXTREME! extremely pointless. Look, I’m all for kids achieving their goals, but this is the equivalent of “Speed Shoelace Tying” or “Speed Remote Control Battery Changing.” Do something, kid! Go play outside! Get good at “speed bike riding” or “speed running.”

Or at least put those speedy hands to use doing something useful like Ms. McKenzie here:

That girl is awesome.
