Chinese man builds full size AR.Drone to fly around

This has to be the bravest dude on the planet, or perhaps the dumbest I can’t really decide.

Chinese dude bathes with eels, one swims up his penis

I know how you early morning types like your weird, so here it is. I know that eels and leeches are different, but the last time I was this grossed out at the thought of a slimy thing getting on private parts was in that Stand by Me scene where he finds the leech in a place guys don't even want to think about. Prepare to squirm guys, you have been warned. Apparently, in China a treatment to make your skin look better is to bathe with some sort of slimy eels.

Joerg Sprave unveils compact bullpup crossbow slingshot

That master of slingshot disaster Joerg Sprave has posted a new video to his YouTube account showing off his latest creation. This time around, he is shooting normal ball bearings out of what he calls the compact bullpup crossbow slingshot rather than exotic ammo like saw blades or iPhones.

Washington D.C. tech firm to build 20-square mile ghost city in New Mexico for testing tech

A technology company from Washington D.C. has an interesting idea for testing all sorts of new technology in a realistic setting. The company is called Pegasus Global Holdings and the project will cost $200 million to complete. The town will be constructed with old and new buildings in New Mexico.

Crowd Buster shoots massive cloud of pepper spray and blue dye to disperse crowds

There has been a number of new non-lethal items for police and military use that I have run across lately. When the rioting was at its strongest in London the Crowd Buster may have been just the thing the police needed to get the looters to leave. This device looks like some sort of flamethrower mated with a mosquito fogger. It's actually a rig that is used to spray giant clouds of pepper spray tinted with blue dye.

CEO of Texas Armoring Corporation lets worker shoot at him with an AK-47

I have seen shows on TV before about armored cars and I have seen the car in movies before and wondered if they really are bulletproof. You know the cars I mean, the sort that look normal but have special glass to prevent bullet from going through and have armor plating inside as well. A dude named Trent Kimball is the CEO of Texas Armoring Corp and he got tired of people asking him if the glass he makes would really stop a bullet.

Slingshot slip and slide is awesomely dangerous

Slingshot slip and slide is awesomely dangerous

Back in the day, the staple of summer for me and my brother was the Slip and Slide. We would spend hours sliding on that that thing until we were lobster red from friction and sunburns.
