What It's Like To Walk Against 100 MPH Winds

Video: Going up against winds over 161km/h? You’re going to lose. Watch as weather observers Mike Dorfman and Tom Padham from the Mount Washington Observatory goof off on the observation deck off the mountain in New Hampshire to show us what it’s like to stand, walk, and jump against 175km/h winds. The wind is so strong it pretty much acts like an invisible physical barrier.


Watch A Carnivorous Plant Wrap Itself Around A Bug And Entomb It

Video: Meet the Drosera Capensis, also known as the Cape sundew. It’s a deadly little thing that looks like some sort of alien finger trap, but it’s actually a carnivorous plant with sticky tentacles that basically entomb bugs that come across its way. It’s incredible to see how it traps the bug as if it were hugging it to paralyse it, and then folding vertically to trap it forever.


Daredevil Rides A Hoverboard Onto The Very Edge Of A Skyscraper

Video: Is riding a hoverboard onto the edge of a roof of a skyscraper in Dubai idiotic? Absolutely. It is very easy to fall off and lose control on one of those things and if you creep too far off the edge, either you or the hoverboard or both would be sent flying down towards the ground way, way below. That’s not a good look. So don’t copy this guy. He’s even spinning around.


Melting A Giant Jawbreaker Is Like Breaking Open Earth's Core

Video:Wow. Peeling back the layers of a jawbreaker is so glorious, especially when it’s done with a blow torch. Each colour bubbles up and melts away revealing a different colour underneath until it’s all gone. This is probably how the Earth gets destroyed in nightmares.


Watch Six Bulldozers Battle Each Other On The Streets Of China In The Craziest Fight Ever

Video: This is madness. Like, seriously what in the hell is going on. In northern China, multiple bulldozers apparently got so mad at each other that they started one of the craziest demolition derbies I’ve ever seen on a public road. It’s a legitimate royal rumble between heavy machinery. There are normal cars on the street driving around trying to avoid the ridiculousness that is giant bulldozers trying to ram the hell out of each other! Some of the bulldozers even got flipped over!


The Most Beautiful Fireworks Show In China Is Literally A Blacksmith Throwing Molten Metal Around

Video: Fireworks, which were invented in China, are obviously a big deal in China. But no fireworks show in any part of the country and very probably the world can match the sheer spectacle and beautiful audacity of this fireworks show in Nuanquan, China. That’s because it’s more of a molten metal show. A blacksmith, wearing only a big hat and a sheepskin vest for protection, just starts throwing and scoop tossing molten metal against the wall of the city to let it sparkle and rain fire. It’s crazy! It’s so dangerous! It’s so awesome.


Watch A Boat Crash Straight Into The Dock

Video: It’s like when you’re parking your car in a parking lot and your tyre bumps the curb because you went a little too far, only it’s a giant boat that’s gone too far and the curb is a dock with a bunch of people walking around. So yeah, not exactly the same. A lot, a lot worse.


Watch Cyclists Get Blown Backwards In A Race Because The Wind Was Too Strong

Video: Everything seems to be going swimmingly in this stage of the Volta La Marina in Benidorm but then all of a sudden the cyclists fall off pace of the car and seem to be slowing down to a legitimate crawl and then basically hit a full stop all at once. What happened? It was the wind. The strong winds pushed against the cyclists stopping them in their tracks and even blowing some backwards. The race was suspended because of it.


This Thunderstorm Time Lapse Is The Most Frightening Thing

Video: I know what my nightmares look like in real life now: this storm off of Maroochydore, Australia. I know what my version of hell would be: this storm off of Maroochydore, Australia. I know all this because this time lapse footage from Blue Dog Films is terrifying in the worst ways, with lightning buzzing and snapping all over the place and clouds morphing into every imaginable shape all at once.


Thousands Of People Are Stuck In This Ridiculous Human Traffic Jam At A China Train Station

People in China have been trying to travel across the country for the upcoming Lunar New Year holiday but some — if tens of thousands of people can be considered just some — have been stuck in one of the most insane human traffic jams in the world at the Guangzhou Railway Station in southern China. CNN reports that 100,000 people were waiting earlier this week while 33,000 are still stuck as of Wednesday morning.
