This Kid Took Apart A Microwave To Create An Insane (And Stupid) Weapon

So don’t take a microwave apart. Don’t. Take. A microwave. Apart. Don’t do it. Don’t! But if you were curious about what would happen if you did, these idiots have you covered. It’s as awesome as it is stupid! It is very awesome and very stupid.


Watch A Chainsaw Open A Beer In Glorious Slow Motion

First off, don’t do this. Seriously. Don’t. It’s an old trick, and probably a great way to stab yourself in the eye with a flying bottle cap. But it sure looks pretty in slow motion, as the goofballs at Slow Mo Lab are here to show us.


This Is What An Exploded Phone Looks Like...And What It Did

You have the Internet in your pocket. The ability to communicate with anyone in the world at your fingertips. A big and beautiful glass screen that’s asking to be touched. Too bad all those things can combine into one giant firework bomb in your pants. We’ve all heard about phones exploding and seen the damage it causes, here’s what it looks like up close. It’s terrifying.


Apple Maps Aren't Just Crap, They're Downright Dangerous

We’ve had a good laugh at Apple’s expense when it comes to Maps, and I’ve given the company quite a serve in the review for such a fundamental product failure in the new iPhone 5, but now it’s getting serious. Apple Maps, as Robert Hills has pointed out to us, is downright dangerous.


Not Even The Dark Knight Would Use This Insanely Dangerous Knife

Batman is best known for his wonderful arsenal of gadgets and weapons, but even with a suit of bulletproof body armour the caped crusader probably still wouldn’t touch this scary-looking knife with a ten-foot batpole.


That's No Rubber Band Gun. This Is A Rubber Band Gun.

The nice man explaining the in’s and out’s of this slingshot cannon looks and sounds exactly like he did the other day when I was imagining what slingshot cannon aficionados might look and sound like. This is not an insult.


Giant Phallic Inflatable Bungee Ride is the Most Fun Way to Break Your Neck Ever

If you’re ever driving and you see a county fair with what appears to be three towering penises with clown makeup on them, pull over. You’ve just found the holy grail of dangerous rides.


The World's Most Terrifying Weapons

If you have ever lost sleep thinking about what military labs the world over are cooking up to shoot up, blow up, or otherwise maim their enemies (and sometimes innocent civilians), you may want to skip the list of the world’s “spookiest” weapons collected by Pop Sci. Many of the 20 we are already familiar with, like nuclear weapons, the cornershot, Metal Storm guns, “Scream” beams, Rail Guns and the infamous Puke Flashlight. However, there are other technologies on the list that you may not be familiar with.


Instant Hot Tub? Just Add Water and Quicklime

This is how you make a hot tub, hillbilly style. Three guys from the prairies of Illinois turned an old stock tank sitting in the open air into a jacuzzi, and heated it up using quicklime, that scary caustic stuff that burns your skin off if you’re not too careful. A video of how they did it, using gas masks, tin baths and a lot of ingenuity, is after the jump.


Dismembered Robot Shopping Cart Cruises Streets, Bursts into Flames

Why the hell is a dismembered pair of legs walking around willy nilly with a shopping cart? I’ll tell you why…To draw awareness to homeless people, and the cutthroat world of cart-pushing. It was designed in 1993 by a college student who thought the concept of using robots for hazardous jobs could be applied to the most dangerous job of all, being homeless. The student rigged the cart together using a bunch of bike chains and a couple car batteries. We’re not sure it serves any practical purpose—might be better if there were hands to put things in the cart. One thing the artist definitely got wrong though: homeless people do not spontaneously burst into flames. At least not in New York, they don’t. [GizmoGarden via Make]
