Super Fun Short Warps Reality By Screwing With Our Expectations

This fantastic short by Terri Timely and Park Pictures completely bends your mind because everyday tasks — like, putting toothpaste on your tooth brush — become something completely different and weird and almost abstract — like, the toothpaste becoming a flame thrower. Think you know what happens when you turn on a TV or spin a lazy susan? Think again!

Orange Wine Looks Like Pee But Tastes Like Magic

Infographic: The Evolution Of The Batmobile

What’s your favourite Batmobile? They all have their own charm, don’t they? The Tumbler was brute force bicep flexing whilst kissing bad arse.

It’s slick and mysterious and what I think of when I think of the Batmobile.

Breathtaking Helicopter Footage Of Cities Around The World
