This is a video of wingsuiters Fred Fugen, Vincent “Veush” Cotte, and Aurélien “Bras Noir Chatard setting the world record for longest wingsuit flight in close proximity, traveling a respectable 7.5km (4.7 miles) over Mont Blanc in France. That footage around 2:30 looks like they were getting LOW. Personally, I don’t care what Lil Jon says, I don’t like getting low. “You prefer getting high?” Nice try, narc. Ironically, despite my middle name being Hite, heights are actually one of the few things that actually scare me. Heights and ghosts.
This is a video of a man attempting to prepare something to eat aboard a boat during rough seas. He seems to be doing a fine enough job until one of his bowls goes flying. I would argue the five second rule should be extended to ten seconds aboard boats, and indefinitely for food that hasn’t been cooked yet. Still, why bother cooking anything if I’m just going to get sea sick and puke it all overboard in a little bit anyways? “Just chumming the waters!” I’ll joke to the real seamen while they all make fun of me.
This is a video of a little cuttlefish in the waters off the coast of Kota Ambon, Indonesia doing its best to match its own color and pattern to the surrounding scenery for MAXIMUM CAMOUFLAGE. Man, these little aliens are totally nuts. Do you think they came to earth in a spaceship or in some sort of water-filled meteor? Because I asked Mother Nature about them and she swears it wasn’t her.
This is a night-vision video captured by Youtuber izcat to see how his cat Minnie behaves when he and his wife go to bed for the night. Minnie is a MOVER. First she’s here, then she’s there, then she’s back here staring you in the face while you sleep. According to izcat, “And this is why we’re always tired! She is a love bug though…” Awwww, love bugs are the best kind of cats. The worst kind of cats? Mine. If I made a video it would just be my cats trying to draw blood from my feet while I stuff my head under my girlfriend’s sleep shirt and pretend I’m Thomas The Tank Motorboat.
Because if everything is bigger in Texas, then Australia is Texas working out in prison on butt-smuggled steroids, dead set on revenge as soon as it can break out (possibly Kool-Aid Man style), this is a video of a massive 6 pound toad that was found by park rangers in Australia. The title of the article where I found the video is ‘Seriously Huge Ass Toad Found In Australia‘, but I’m fairly certain that’s a cane toad and not an ass toad. The toad was nicknamed ‘Toadzilla’ by its founders, because, unfortunately, coming up with a clever nickname clearly isn’t a perquisite for finding a giant toad.
This is some home security cam footage of a charging iPhone 4 spontaneously combusting. Now I know what you’re thinking, “An iPhone 4, really? Those came out way back in 2010 — they probably aren’t even compatible with today’s electricity.” And I’d be inclined to agree with you if I didn’t notice Apple already throttling the performance of my iPhone 12. Clearly, after 13 years Apple gives up trying to casually encourage an upgrade and just sends the kill code.
