Seeing The First Person View Of A Lego Toy Train Riding Around On A Track Is Surprisingly Fun

Seeing the perspective of a toy train is way, way more fun than it should be. About 48.77m of Lego train tracks were laid out around this guy’s house, through the inside of home, next to his pets, and beyond.


Look How Fire Gracefully Slides And Dances Down This Bottle

Here’s the classic science experiment of mixing fire and alcohol in a large empty jug. It’s always fun to see the perfect layer of flames slowly dance its way down the cylinder, like a slow drip of fire as the alcoholic vapors combust. Of course, the best part is that ‘whoosh’ sound it makes.


Awesome Animated GIFs Show The Famous Characters Actors Play In Their Careers

Artist Prasad Bhat made this fantastic art series, The Evolution, that tracks the career of famous actors and the iconic roles they have played in different movies. It’s great because the expression of each actor never changes (and the expressions are so, so on point), even through all the characters’ costumes and wigs and facial hair and so forth.


These Bus Stops Left Over From The Soviet Union Are Wonderfully Bizarre

The Soviet Union. The USSR. The Iron Curtain. The Eastern Bloc. Lenin. Stalin. The Communist Party. The KGB. The Cold War. And awesomely designed bus stops? Apparently, and bizarrely and awesomely, that’s one of the legacies of the Soviet Union. Photographer Christopher Herwig’s excellent photo book Soviet Bus Stops documents the design of local bus stops across the former USSR, and they’re all so impressively weird and out of place that it doesn’t really make any sense. But it is so fun to see.


A Lovely Ode To The Sounds Of A Mechanical Keyboard

Video: Clickety Clack. The sounds of a mechanical keyboard are just so soothing. There’s such a satisfying audible (and physical) reaction whenever you hit the keys, like hey, press this button and you’ll feel good. Here’s Pseudorandom using the mechanical keyboard as an instrument for a song.


Animated Video Beautifully Recreates Old Penny Arcade Machines

Video: You know those old machines where you drop a coin in and it starts whirring and spinning and everything comes to life and you’re supposed to have fun as you watch the little people move in a set pattern because that’s the only form of entertainment that exists? This music video for Jane Bordeaux’s ‘Ma’agalim’ recreates those machines and it’s somehow much more captivating than a real machine.


Watch Random Objects Get Cut In Half With A Powerful Waterjet Cutter

Video: Do you know what you learn when you see totally random objects like a shoe or an airsoft gun or a golf club or a computer speaker get cut in half by a powerful waterjet cutter? That there’s a lot of space in these things. Just big hollow areas next to the parts of the object that actually do something. The other thing you learn, watching things get cut in half with water is freaking cool.


These Crazy Jet Ski Tricks Seem To Defy Gravity

Video: Gravity doesn’t really apply to world champion jet skier Eli Kemnitz when he’s on one of those floating rockets. Just watch him freestyle and bust out an array of jumping tricks on flat water. You get to see see it a little bit from his perspective but the really wild part is just watching him spin and then bounce, spin and then bounce, and spin and then bounce like the water is a freaking trampoline.


Just How Many Cigarettes Did Matthew McConaughey Smoke In True Detective?

This is totally silly because it was two years ago but anyone who saw True Detective season one knew a few things to be true. That Matthew McConaughey was going to win an Oscar for Dallas Buyers Club because of his performance as Rust Cohle in True Detective and that as foul as cigarettes are, you wish you could enjoy them like he did on screen. How many times did he get to make you jealous? A clean 40. Two packs of on screen inhaling joy.


Playing Soccer With A Ball That's On Fire

Video: I get it now! That’s why soccer doesn’t let players use their hands. Just in case they decide to start playing with a fireball. Watch Joltter, Andrew Henderson and Melody Donchet do tricks with a ball that’s on fire and also hit a free kick too.
