For those of us who don’t live in or around deserts, it’s almost impossible to imagine the intensity and sheer scale of a real sandstorm. These things, while not as famously terrifying as tornados, can reach massive sizes and wreak their own special brand of havoc. For proof, just take a look at the video below.
It features the crew of a big rig truck somewhere in China (likely the Gobi Desert). They were transporting a large piece of machinery when they came across a massive sandstorm. Instead of driving through it or turning around, they stopped, got out, and shot some video.
I’ll agree that it looks pretty amazing, but I wouldn’t want to be out in the open when one of these things rolled in.
Typically, the only thing you should put in the microwave is food. But if you put Ivory soap in the microwave for one to two minutes, something amazing happens. Because Ivory soap has pockets of air and water inside of it, a solid bar of soap turns into a fluffy soap soufflé right in front of your eyes when heated. Your kids are sure to be amazed by this fun science experiment. Plus, your kitchen will smell like it just took a shower. Watch the video below to find out why this crazy phenomenon happens.
After the soap has been microwaved, it’s still totally useable. In fact, you might even conserve more soap by using less in the shower. Pretty cool, huh?!
Cats are one of the great joys in life (and on the Internet).
You may have seen every funny cat video out there from angry kittens to excitable balls of fluff, but unless you’ve seen cats trying to walk around in socks, you haven’t truly lived. And even if you have seen cats in socks, a compilation of many cats in many socks is a laugh-out-loud funny way to remind yourself just how much you love your furry friends.
I dare you to try to keep a straight face while these kitties try to figure out how their feet work again.
The left is obsessed with taking strong words and robbing them of their real meaning. “Racism” and “hate” are now applied to simple disagreement. With all the talk condemning “rape culture” are they minimizing the real crime of rape? Steven Crowder tackles the issue (and —shudder— plays Lena Dunham again) in his latest video.
New video up tonight! Will be taking @lenadunham to task and addressing our plaguing "rape culture" problem.
With new buildings being constructed every day all across the globe, Mother Nature is slowly dying thanks to urbanization.
The towering apartment building below was in need of serious repairs, so when city officials got wind of some pretty gusty weather coming their way, they feared that the structure might collapse. They had the building evacuated, and it’s a good thing they did.
As you can see below, Mother Nature is determined to prove that she won’t go down without a fight. The day after the evacuation, strong winds sent the apartment building tumbling to the ground. Luckily, no one was injured in the windy demolition.
Watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a tradition for many families.
I always remember having the parade on the tiny television in my grandparents’ kitchen while I was enlisted to chop or prepare something for our big meal. My sister and I would pick out our favorites from the legendary balloons. It’s nostalgic.
For one grandma, the parade has huge significance. Grandma Boop had been trying to be in the parade for more than 30 years, and on her 83rd birthday, her kids gave her the surprise of a lifetime.
She doesn’t know what to think or believe at first, but when she gets it, the look on her face is priceless.
When it comes time to pick out a pet, there’s a reason why cats and dogs are the obvious choices. After all, they’ve been domesticated to live in relative harmony with humans. Taking in exotic animals, on the other hand, can be a disastrous (and often illegal) experience.
Just ask this guy in the video below. Somehow, this fool managed to get a wild lynx as a pet. Instead of trying to calm the creature down, however, he decided to antagonize it.
Some people just shouldn’t have animals.
I’m not ashamed to say that I really hope this guy got bitten by the lynx after the camera stopped rolling. Seriously, who does stuff like this? The title of the video says it all, really.
Is it just me, or are mannequins just a little bit freaky? While I don’t think it’s the only reason I do my clothes shopping online, it’s certainly a factor. I don’t have to deal with faceless, demonic mannequins when I’m on Amazon.
Anyway, while using mannequins is creepy in and of itself, what one store in Reno, Nevada, is doing with theirs has ratcheted up the creepy factor by 10. Through the strategic use of a digital projector, they managed to imbue a faceless mannequin with life…sorta. If you’re not unsettled by the video below, then you officially have an ironclad constitution.
I’m a big fan of quick Halloween costumes because yes, I’m a super-lazy person.
However, it can be hard to pull something together fast without it looking really cheap. Plus, it’s way more fun to create your own creepy getup than just buying a generic one at the store. That’s why I’m totally loving this gruesome makeup job.
If you’re in the market for a creative yet completely freaky costume, you have to check out this woman’s easy tutorial on how to give your face the appearance of being unzipped.
Who knew cotton could look so much like bloody flesh?
