Hot damn. This 260kg firework basically fills the entire night's sky with explosions so ridiculously huge and, like, everywhere that it's almost unbelievable. One second you're just watching normal fireworks go off, and then the next, you're being blinded with the most insane 5-second light show your eyes will probably ever see.

Here's a neat behind the scenes video showcasing how trials cyclist Danny MacAskill pulled off a wild stunt: riding down a very short ramp so he could jump off right next to someone's house on a cliff, and front flip straight into the damn ocean. It's fun to see how he tries to figure out where the best place to jump off of is, because a lot of the planning process is just him throwing rocks off the edge to see where they end up falling.
Video: I'm totally safe and sitting in front of a computer screen, and yet I'm sweating because watching this guy pull his crazy jumps from buildings is just not OK. This one is especially brutal because I really didn't expect him to end up where he landed. He starts on the roof of the building 40m in the air and ends up safely down in the harbour — but I thought he was gunning for that soft middle landing of water between the dock and not, like, on the freaking other side.
Video: Yeah, he just did that. This fearless snake whisperer released 285 snakes back into the wild by dumping out a bag full of them and then rubbing the snakes on the ground to make them all slither away. It's so gross looking because they just start shooting off in every direction, and absolutely frightening because it's, like, the scariest nightmare happening in real life.
Video: This dude is crazy and awful and screwed up but also bold and daring and a freaking total savage. Armed with a handsaw and a sociopathic personality, he literally chopped down a tree in order to steal a bike. A tree no longer exists because this guy saw a bike locked up to it and thought it'd be easy money to get. Some poor sap is now without their bike because this mad man thought sawing through a tree trunk was easier than breaking a bike lock.
Video: I don't know what 1000 suns actually looks like in real life, but I would imagine it's probably something like lighting up this 20,000 watt light bulb to full, world-scorching power. It's that eyeball-burning and -blindingly bright. Photonicinduction tested this 20kW Halogen light bulb that's used for large scale film sets indoors — where it can flood out an entire room in white light — and outdoors — where it can pretty much turn night into day. I'm not even joking.
Video: I don't know how these tiny dancers got trapped inside this spinning zoetrope but it's the only explanation I can come up with for this incredible light animation. Their movements are so smooth, and the shining light captures the grace of their dance so well that I'm sure some sort of magic has to be at play here.
