  • A Cinematic Supercut of Flipping Tables

    The pure euphoric adrenaline that flipping a table would give you. Now I’m sure many of you reading this have never actually flipped a table, then you don’t know the sheer joy that comes out of a situation so bad that it would require you to flip said table in the first place. The rage, the flip, the satisfaction. Roman Holiday created a super-cut of the best 34 cinematic table flips, obviously including Jesus, Sam Jackson and Danny Glover. Watch and then go have a cigarette** or find the nearest mosh pit to exhaust the sheer emotion you feel from seeing 34 tables flip. FTW. Cinematic Table Flips from Roman Holiday on Vimeo. **In no way do we support smoking cigarettes for emotional release. Even e-cigarettes are up in the air at this point.

  • 57 Eerie Photos Showing The High Line When It Was An Abandoned Railway

    Before it became a New York City landmark enjoyed by millions of visitors each year The High Line was a condemned freight rail line in dire straights. Built in the 1930s and out of operation since 1980, the track was on the verge of being torn down by the city. Today the park is recognized as the pinnacle of urban redevelopment but let’s take a look at it before the non-profit Friends of the High Line swooped in to save the day. If you want to see what the park looks like today visit The High Line website where they have hundreds of beautiful pictures.

  • Netflix Series BoJack Horseman Stars Will Arnett as a Washed-Up Horse Sitcom Star

    Netflix is now trying their skill set at cartoons. Their latest project “BoJack Horseman”, a dry comedy staring Will Arnett as a washed-up child sitcom actor who now has to cope with the reality of a dimming career and life as a has-been celebrity. Oh and he’s a horse. Who can walk on two legs, like a human. Oh and their are actually plenty of animorph type characters. Kind of like hieroglyphs of ancient Egypt, but set around an alcoholic man-horse. It also stars Alison Brie as BoJack’s former love interest, Amy Sedaris as a cat-agent and Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul as a human. Yeah, I’m watching this.

  • This Risqué Swimwear Was Too Hot For Early 1900s Beaches [10 Photos]

    In the 19th century, two-piece bathing suits became commonplace for women, but these were no bikinis. The two pieces were a gown from shoulder to knees and a set of trousers with leggings down to the ankles. These bathing suits were great for keeping down the urges but they were terrible when it came to actually swimming in the water. In 1907, Australian swimmer Annette Kellerman came to the United States to perform as an “underwater ballerina.” She wore a form-fitting swimsuit that revealed her neck, arms, and legs and was promptly arrested in Massachusetts for indecent exposure. She added long legs and arms and a collar to the swimsuit so she could perform, but kept it form-fitting so she could still move around. She began marketing her one-piece bathing suit which became known as the “Annette Kellerman.” This new swimwear was considered the most offensive on the market and was the focus of numerous censorship efforts. To add to her notoriety, Kellerman also became the first actress to do a nude scene in a movie with her work in “A Daughter of the Gods.” Annette Kellerman, we salute you.

  • Man Meal: The Secret’s In the Sauce, 5 Summer BBQ Sauce Recipes

    A summer barbecue is only as good as the sauce that flavors the meats. Everyone know’s this. Or do they?

  • 5 New York City Dates That Will Impress Her (Without Breaking Your Wallet!)

    A surefire way to plan a great but reasonably-priced date is to create an experience. This way, the time you spend together will be filled up by an activity or entertainment that lasts for a while and keeps you from buying more cocktails or scrambling for options.

Not to mention, you will have fun if your date feels more like an outing and less like a job interview.

  • Bruce Anstey’s 132MPH Superbike Record Lap Looks Like Fictional Hyper-speed

    New Zealand Superbike legend Bruce Anstey made history when he finished an Isle of Mann TT lap at a staggering 132.298 MPH. The Isle of Man TT circuit takes enough brass to hop on a bike and take a leisurely stroll through, let alone break the speed record for the course. Bruce is no stranger to going mentally unstable-fast, being a nine-time winner of what is considered to be the most dangerous motor racing event in the world. 241 riders have died on the course in less than 100 years of racing. Anstey had a camera strapped to the front of his bike and we can’t help but think of a Fast and the Furious race scene that elaborate’s peripheral vision into a hyper-speed-Star-Trek like visual. Well this is that, but in real life, without the confines of a spaceship. Hold on to your butts.

  • Origami House Is Way Bigger Than It Looks [18 Photos]

    Located in Mie Prefecture on Japan’s main Honshu island, the Origami House from TSC Architects is modeled after the Japanese paper-folding art. The unique design of the roof isn’t just for show, it also serves a structural purpose. Through contact with the ground, the diagonal roof becomes a strong defense against winds and earthquakes. The giant eaves also block the direct rays of the sun and protect the outer wall from rain. Inside, the house is planned around a double-height living room with a kitchen and dining room off to one side. A bedroom, bathroom, and traditional Japanese-room are placed along the edges. Upstairs is an additional bedroom and storage area.

  • The Pristine Beaches and Ancient Architecture of Montenegro [15 HQ Photos]

    The Balkans country of Montenegro is a lake side country  on the Adriatic Sea that borders  Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina to the north, Serbia to the northeast, Kosovo to the east, and Albania to the south.

It’s Mediterranean climate, having dry summers and mild, rainy winters makes it a great destination for summer fun and ski worthy winters.  All Image credit via: Shutterstock.com

  • China Has A Paris Clone City. And It’s An Eerie Ghost Town. [22 Photos]

    Tianducheng, a gated community near Hangzhou, the capital of China’s Zhejiang province, was constructed in 2007. The city, capable of accommodating more 10,000 residents, was built to simulate Paris, with 12 square miles of Parisian architecture, fountains, and even a 354 foot tall replica of the Eiffel Tower. However, not many mainland China residents can afford the luxurious setting, leaving many of the completed buildings abandoned yet eerily pristine. Only about 2000 people actually live in Tianducheng, most of which are working on the construction of a Paris theme park nearby. The city might not be for everyone, but if you love Paris but hate Parisians (and their high prices) Tianducheng might just be the vacation spot for you.

  • 10 Rare Photos Of Apollo Astronauts Training In Hawaii

  • A Map Of Where Bars Outnumber Grocery Stores

    6 years ago, FloatingSheep created a graph of the United States that showed which cities had more bars and which had more grocery stores. It was an interesting map, but it didn’t show the magnitude of the difference between the counts and the numbers were pulled from the Google Maps Directory which may not be completely accurate. Recently, statistician Nathan Yau set out to make a more detailed map. Using data from the Google Places API and showing the magnitude of the difference, Yau created a new map of the US at his site, Flowing Data. Then he took it a step further and created maps of other nations. With 303% more bars than grocery stores, Spain has their priorities straight!

  • Informative Science Video Asks: Are You Alone?

    Thanks to celebrity scientists, such as Bill Nye and Neil deGrasse Tyson, who make their fields ever approachable to dummies like us, there has been an increasing demand for knowledge. But sometimes, the information we’re provided is too dry or academic, and it becomes meaningless. Luckily, there are clever designers out there who are able to take boring facts and figures and turn them into fun and educational cartoons that are much easier to digest. This latest video from Kurzgesagt accomplishes just that, but it’s not all they have to offer. Be sure to check out their Tumblr for more videos explaining technology, astronomy, nature and plenty of other science topics.

  • Bachelor Pad Made Of Liquid Stone [16 Photos]

    India’s SPASM Design Architects looked to the large amounts of basalt rock for inspiration in constructing this home in Khopoli. Using granular basalt mixed with water, cement, and sand, they created a unique black concrete to construct the home, allowing it to seamlessly blend in with its surroundings. The modern, open plan puts focus on the incredible natural surroundings rather than what’s inside the home. And one look off the cliff edge is all you need to see why. There is also a pool overlooking the edge of the cliff for those rare dry days where you yearn for the refreshing wetness of monsoon season. 

  • So It’s Cheaper to Fly From NY to LA for the Stanley Cup Finals Than to Attend a Game at MSG

    When the New York Rangers qualified for the Stanley Cup Finals last Thursday, May 29th, everyone knew tickets at MSG would skyrocket through the roof, but no one thought they would be a nearly unattainable $1,105 for the cheapest seat in the house. The LA Kings are no stranger to the Stanley Cup Finals, achieving Cup victory in 2012 and since having since dominated the league with great goaltending and a plethora of talent.  The Blueshirts are celebrating their 20 year anniversary since the iconic team of Messier, Leetch and Richter brought the cup back to New York for the first time since 1940, so needless to say Rangers fans have been itching for this moment. In 1994 the average ticket price in section 410 was $32 and a section 129 premiere seat was $75. Even after adjusting for inflation over that period of time, the prices convert to just $51.19 and $119.98. The average price for a game 3 ticket at the garden is a staggering $2,202.72, an egregious amount of money to watch an underdog Rangers team  take on a playoff seasoned Los Angeles powerhouse. TiqIQ has projected the tickets for this years Stanley Cup Finals to exceed tickets sold in more »
