Super Mario Bros Edited Into Real Life To Ruin People's Lives

Video: I’m a horrible person who always laughs when people fail in YouTube videos. This collection of fails made me laugh even harder because it’s been perfectly edited to splice in Mario and Luigi from Nintendo as the evil invisible force who cause all these screw ups in real life.


Skydivers Fail To Open Parachute On Time And Almost Crash On The Ground

These two guys were enjoying their skydiving so much that they lost track on their altitude meters failing to open the parachute on time for a safe landing. Luckily they fell on what it seems to be a corn field and that softened the landing.


Catching Lobsters With Your Bare Hands Looks Hilariously Impossible

Because my only experiences with live lobsters are when they’re on display in tanks at restaurants or used for poses in photographs, I never knew how insanely quick they can be. And because I didn’t know they had cat-like reflexes, I never knew how hilarious it is to watch people fail at catching them. Now I know.



Watch Portugal Launch A Drone And Immediately Fail By Crashing It

Video: Well, hmph. That’s not how drones work guys. Supposedly, this video shows Portugal attempting to launch a naval drone by giving it a running start. As the drone is thrown in the air to fly, it immediately nosedives and crashes into the ocean. What a wonderful failure.


This Video Compilation Of Hilarious Military Fails Is Comedic Gold

I’m sorry. People who serve in the army make incredible sacrifices for their countries, and I am incredibly thankful for them. They do amazing things. They make our lives a lot better. But I can’t help but laugh at this wonderful compilation of fails in the military.

Can Aussies Get A SimCity Refund?

If you haven’t been following EA’s launch of the latest SimCity game, all you really need to know is that it has turned into a momumental fail of a launch. One of the worst in years. Mostly it’s down to the always-on DRM, botched game recovery and the massive server queues. Under Australian Consumer Law, if a product is faulty you can get a refund with the manufacturer. EA has a strange policy that says you can’t get refunds for digital copies of games obtained from its Origin service, but that all seems a little fishy. Mark over at Kotaku has done some digging about whether you can actually get a refund, and it’s well-worth a read if you’re a disgruntled Mayor. [Kotaku]

Last night, the Wall Street Journal took its new mobile site live, supposedly specially formatted to look good and work on iOS devices. Except, erm, check out what it looks like on an iPad Mini.
