I Want to Play: Underground Trampolines Suspended in a Mine

I spend a lot of my day wishing I was on an adventure somewhere. It doesn’t have to be a big thing, basically just not whatever I’m doing at the time that I’m daydreaming about the adventure. Here’s a good one that I’d be willing to try. If you’re afraid of heights, caves, the dark, …

Great Thinkers of Our Day: Man Wearing Mentos Suit Dropped in a Tank of Coke

Here is possibly the worlds sweetest Vine Video. What you’re looking at is a man wearing a suit covered in Mentos being dunked in a tank of Coke. I can only assume that this was some kind of failed attempt at shooting a person in to orbit. But you know what I’ve always said. If …

Not Sure About This: New Ride Drops You 300 Feet Face First

Busch Gardens in Tampa, Florida is finishing construction on a new ride they’re calling Falcon’s Fury that will open this Summer. When riders get to the top—as many as 32 at one time—their seats are tilted forward 90 degrees so that they’re directly facing the ground when released. And during the first 100 feet of …

Bring the Speed: City Block-Long Slip-n-Slide

What do you do when you have an excess of hay bales, tarps, and dish soap? Make a giant slip-n-slide obviously. A steep city street was transformed into a water slide made of hay bales and tarpaulin as part of an interactive art project. Park Street in Bristol was cleared of traffic and turned into …

Wish I was There: Cleveland Released 1.5 Million Balloons

Ok, so this isn’t exactly news, but only reporting news would be restricting so we’ll just ignore that. The same way you try to ignore those teens wearing restricting pants who stand by your car in the parking lot and smoke. What are they doing out there? Why can’t they stand somewhere else? I don’t …

I Want to Play: Another Real-Life Mario Kart

If you weren’t aware or weren’t invited, I wasn’t invited, SXSW is going on right now in Austin, Texas. One activity I’m unhappy to be missing out on is the real-life Mario Kart sponsored by Penzoil and Nintendo. Apparently Penzoil has a new oil product made from natural gas, which sounds like a step backwards …

I Want to Play: Giant Hotwheels Kinetic Art Installation

This is Metropolis II, a giant art piece by Chris Burden. It’s an art piece so expect the video and descriptions to be artsy, but you can’t stop this one from being cool and a boy’s dream. Chris Burden’s Metropolis II is an intense kinetic sculpture, modeled after a fast paced, frenetic modern city. Steel …

Looks Like a Party: Lockheed Martin Duct-Taping Engineers to the Walls

What happens when you put a bunch of bored engineers in a room with a couple rolls of duct tape? With any other group you’d probably come up with several new hazing rituals, but with engineers they turned it into their favorite thing, a bridge building contest. Ok, so they didn’t really build bridges, these …

Play it Again: Holy Stomping

When’s the last time you found a really good, amazingly simple, outlandishly dumb, and endlessly entertaining Internet game? If it’s been a while then today is the day for a new one. Holy Stomping is the new game in which you play as the Foot of Cupid from Monty Python and you stomp things. Holy …
