This is a Thrasher compilation of some of the best San Francisco hill bombs performed by skateboarder Sean Greene, runs that can only be described as entirely too steep and a bad idea. I like how with the speed he generates he can easily ollie over an entire crosswalk. Me?
This is a video of electric bike and quad modder Domo constructing what is allegedly the world’s fastest mobility scooter for his pal Sur Ronster after Sur busted his ankle. The scooter features a Surron Storm Bee 22.5 kW electric dirt bike motor powered by 72-volt batteries, full suspension, and
Harnessing his inner Rick Allen from Def Leppard, this is a video of drummer El Estepario Siberiano performing some impressively heavy riffs with a single hand while smoking with the other. Damn, he moves FAST. Me? I move at more of a turtle’s pace. You know what they say —

This is a visualization imagining you’re a beam of light leaving the sun and traveling out of our solar system at the speed of light. I mean what other speed would you be traveling, you are a beam of light after all. And I mean that too — you’re a
This is a video of several snapping and mantis shrimps snapping/boxing filmed at 11,000 frames/second and producing cavitation bubbles (created when the static pressure of a liquid reduces to below the liquid’s vapor pressure, leading to the formation of small vapor-filled “bubbles” in the liquid). Even filmed at such high
