  • Chinese Hotel Builds World Largest Ball Pit For Breast Cancer Awareness

    The Kerry Hotel in Pudong, Shanghai replaced the water in their 25 meter swimming with one million pink and green balls for breast cancer awareness. For those of us metrically challenged, the pool is 82 feet long and 41 feet wide. That’s a lot bigger than the ball pit at your local McDonald’s Playplace. How long before all the balls are sticky and the urine stench is so bad the hotel has to be evacuated? Probably before I can fly over there.  

  • Rent This Bachelor Pad In Thailand

    So you’re planning your vacation to Thailand but you still haven’t found a place to stay. Maybe you should take a look at Villa Amanzi on Kamala beach in Phuket. You get 6 bedrooms, remote controlled blinds and curtains, private staircase to the ocean, fully equipped kitchen with live-in chef, 52-inch television and ping-pong table in the family room, and an infinity pool all for just $2000-$5500 a night for up to 12 guests. That leaves you plenty of money to entertain the ladyboys!

  • 50 Things From 2000-09 That We’ll Consider “Retro” In the Near Future

    Now that we are well into the 2010’s we can look back and anticipate what styles, products and fads from the 2000’s will be considered retro in the near future. Don’t be surprised if you wake up tomorrow morning and half these things are cool again. All it takes is one hipster in Green Point to wear a red backwards Yankee hat for the epidemic to catch fire.

  • Watch Excited Red Sox Fans Flip Car [Video]

    Wicked pissah! Sawks win! What better way to celebrate than flipping over cars? Also uprooting trees seems like a fun idea. Maybe next time, though, it would be more polite to make sure no one is in the car when it gets flipped. To be fair, if the Mets ever actually won a World Series I might lose control, too.

  • Things You Should NEVER Say To A Bartender

    Thrillist got together with a bunch of bartenders to make a short video to instruct those of us who slept through the Emily Post class on barroom etiquette how we should treat our bartender. Apparently you’re not supposed to call them names, snap and wave at them, ask for free drinks, or tell them how drunk you are. Jeez, maybe they should just make a video telling us what we SHOULD say to them, because at this point, I’m at a total loss. Also, is that empty bottle of Crown Royal in front of the lamp, or is it the actual lamp?

  • 11 Fastest Players in NFL History (Infographic)

    Speed is synonymous with sports, but essential in the NFL. In it’s history, the NFL has not only produced players that can reach olympic athlete speeds, but can take or give a hit while doing it. Take a closer look at these numbers and tell me the top 5 players aren’t superhuman. Bo Jackson was every inch as skilled in real life as he was portrayed in Tecmo Bowl.  

  • An Insider’s Look At Pinterest’s New HQ

    Earlier this year, Pinterest began moving into their new 45,000-square-foot headquarters in San Francisco. What looks like a simple brick warehouse on the outside is actually a sleek, contemporary concept within. There are four 20 by 20 foot “houses” where employees can hang out together to brainstorm and work in a relaxed setting and to foster a sense of community, there are tables throughout the building that hold 20 people, so nobody feels left out. Keeping a mostly open plan also allows for the company to adapt the building as the workforce grows and changes. Personally, I would probably stay out of the “houses.” The glass walls would make me feel like I was in some futuristic museum exhibit. Plus the creepy dude waiting outside the house in the third picture makes me uncomfortable.

  • Blooper Reel From “Back To The Future” [Video]

    Watch these bloopers to hear Michael J Fox curse like you have never heard him curse before (unless you saw him on “Curb Your Enthusiasm”). At one point he even acts like a horrible Mexican stereotype. ¿Qué? Just keep in mind, we only have a little over a year until 2015 happens which means one thing…hoverboards.

  • BREAKING: Entire In-Flight Gadget Usage To Be Approved By FAA

    Airplane travelers will soon be able to watch videos and play games with their electronic devices throughout their entire flight — and not just above a certain altitude — the Federal Aviation Administration said Thursday in a long-anticipated announcement. But don’t expect to be chatting on your cell phone. A ban on using cell phones for voice communication remains in effect. The FAA, following months of study by a group of aviation experts, said Thursday that airlines can soon allow passengers to use portable electronic devices such as tablets, laptop computers, e-readers and cell phones in airplane mode throughout the flight — with some circumstantial restrictions. Until now, passengers in the United States were prohibited from using the devices until their plane rose above 10,000 feet. The timing of the changes will depend on individual airlines, but an FAA statement said it expects “many carriers will prove to the FAA that their planes allow passengers to safely use their devices in airplane mode, gate-to-gate, by the end of the year.” “Each airline will determine how and when this will happen,” FAA administrator Michael Huerta told reporters Thursday morning at Reagan Washington National Airport. The FAA had long claimed that using more »

  • Banksy’s Latest Work: Nazi Oil Painting For Charity

    For his latest project in New York City, Banksy purchased an oil painting at Housing Works, a thrift store on 23rd Street, added a reflective Nazi to it, then returned it to the store. Of course, people rushed out hoping they could purchase it for cheap but no such luck. It’s still on display at the store for now but is also up for auction at Bidding For Good. The auction ends tomorrow, but you better pool your money with your other art-loving hippy friends, because as of right now the price is up to $300,000. Now to wait for the fake Banksy thrift store oil paintings to start showing up around the city. 

  • What Do The Mavs Say? [Video]

    If you really want to scare the kiddies this Halloween, play this video over and over again. I know the noises coming from Vince Carter will be haunting me for days. How many millions do you think Mark Cuban had to put up for these guys to make fools of themselves?

  • How To Win An Oscar [Infographic]

    Okay all you actor types, get out your magnifying glass and start studying this infographic. Don’t be one of those losers who has to say “well it was an honor just to be nominated.” That’s crap and you know it. I’m no thespian, but as a bearded man who would only participate in sex scenes where I die (everyone needs a niche), I probably wouldn’t win an Oscar any time soon. That’s okay, for it would be an honor just to have my dead wang on film.

  • Get Your Ass To Mars In This Flyover Video Of The Red Planet

    Instead of waiting another 70 years for Rekall to start offering Mars vacations, why not just watch this video? Using information gathered over the last decade from the European Space Agency’s Mars Express, this model of a Mars flyover is probably the closest we’re going to get for a while. It looks like it would be neat to visit, but it’s not the kind of place to raise your kids. In fact, it’s cold as hell.

  • Antigua’s New Website Will Offer The World America’s Copyrighted Content For Free

    In true David and Goliath fashion, the small Caribbean island of Antigua won the right to suspend US copyright agreement on all forms of media. Will the Pirate Bay set sail to Antigua for totally legitimate and legal hosting? Will an Antiguatown spring up in New York City offering plenty of counterfeit goods? Will any of this make up for the billions they lost since America blocked their gambling sites? Eh, probably not.

  • Trying To Pick Up Girls In A Fat Suit [Video]

    The newest video from Simple Pickup aims to show how confidence is what really matters when picking up women since even this fat suited fella is able to get girls’ numbers. I’m not sure how empowering the self deprecating humor and falling for pity really is to those of considerable girth, but it makes for a good video. No matter what though, whether you’re fat or skinny, we all know it’s just a numbers game. So chins up, lardo, there’s hope for you yet.

  • Man Meal: Guy Fieri’s Award Winning 22-Ingredient Mac-N-Cheese Burger

    At the New York City Wine & Food Festival‘s annual Burger Bash, 3,000  party guests sampled 27 different burger creations, including Guy Fieri’s mac ‘n’ cheese bacon burger, which won the People’s Choice award in a first-time tie with the reigning champ, Burger & Barrel’s Josh Capon who has taken home the prize the last three years. 

  • Watch Carlos Burle Surf What May Be The Biggest Wave Ever [Video]

    While many in Europe were seeking sanctuary from the storm known as Saint Jude, which killed 11 people, surfers saw it as the perfect opportunity to catch some of the biggest waves the world has seen. The current record, from the same spot in Portugal, is 78 feet and now Carlos Burle is waiting on final word to see if he is the new titleholder. Some are saying this wave was closer to 100 feet! This is a well produced video of the event but maybe a different song would have been better. “O Fortuna” makes it sound like Burle tried but his hubris was too much and Poseidon took him to a watery grave. Why not something happy, like “Surfin’ Bird”? Nazaré Blow Up from SURFPortugal Mag on Vimeo.

  • Man Meal: The Fried Pickle

    The fried pickle is a southern tradition of fried goodness. A fusion of salts, bitters and sweets. The recipe is basic enough, so after a couple of runs you can start adding different flavors to wet your palette even more, some chili powder, cajun sauces or even a tangy twist, but learn these simple steps before you go and light your mouth on fire.

  • NYPD Tries To Corral Longboarders With Giant Net, Hilarity Ensues [Video]

    Broadway Bomb is an annual gathering of thousands of longboard skaters in Manhattan that took place earlier this month. This year, the NYPD sought to corral the skaters with a net that was easily avoided by the small dudes on skateboards but was a major obstruction for the drivers in daytime New York City traffic. Speed up the footage and add “Yakkety Sax” playing in the background a la Benny Hill and you’ve got the makings of an incredible video.

  • If Walter White Told ‘Chemistry Dad’ Jokes

    You know Walter White, the family man and you know Heisenberg, the meth dealer, but what if Mr. White was also, the “dad” comedian? You know that dad/teacher who always tells those jokes that are painstakingly clever, but also wildly cheesy. The jokes your chemistry teacher told the first day of chem class. He knows how bad they were, but he got a certain satisfaction when the majority of the class put their face in hand at the bud of the punchline. Reddit user Luannyboyzz thought it was a good idea to give science dads across the globe a little more material in the form of Mr. White.

  • “House of Cards” Could Be Locked For A Third Season

    Remember when “House of Cards” was believed to be only 2 seasons and lots of critics and fans were very accepting of that fact so as to get a complete story without any jumping of the shark? Well Netflix is now saying that was never their intention and talks for more seasons are moving along. Will Netflix ruin the integrity of their shows by being just as greedy and stretching them out as long as possible just like the television networks? Will we keep watching while complaining? Stay tuned…

  • Prohibition’s Unintended Consequences [Infographic]

    The 13 years of Prohibition were some of the worst this country has seen in terms of crime and corruption. Not to mention it was tough to find an affordable drink.

  • Ryse: Son of Rome is on a Mission to Recruit Every Man on Earth to Play

    The XBox One platform is just about set for release and like an angry bull in a stable is ready for the rodeo.
