Hummer

“This is a stupendous test shot of the LOSAT (Line of Sight Anti Tank missile). It’s being launched off a HUMVEE, which carries two loaded canisters on each side (4 missiles total). The commander/gunner can acquire and track three targets simultaneously, and engage one. Since the missile is hypervelocity (5000 feet per second), and has [...]

Helicopter Crash

An amateur video shot by a couple of friends of mine one dreary sunday when they had nothing better to do. They got hold of a dodgy old military helicopter at the local Helicopters’R’Us 24/7, loaded up on drugs, and tried to fly it. Obviously neither of them had ever flown a helicopter before, and [...]

Helicopter refuel

A CH-53 (AKA Jolly Green Giant) trying to inflight refuel. The basket keeps getting caught in the wash, the chopper pilot dips to meet it, and then realises the basket is gonna whip back up into the blades, and reflex makes him pull up way too sharp, and sends his nozzle into the blades. To [...]

Governor

A very short clip that could, in this ridiculous world we live in actually damage the future governor of california’s prospects. But first, many questions must be answered. Is it him? Is it weed? Did he inhale? Did he get high? Where was he (Amsterdam)? Did he rape Grandmothers and steal their money in a [...]

Goped VS Car

I want a Goped more than I want to breath. They rock. After having seen this clip I want one more than I want to live. Unfortunately I have absolutely no rationale for owning one other than to attempt to kill myself playing in busy traffic whilst drunk in the middle of the day. So [...]

Go For A Swim

“I was bored with work, so I cut out and went for a swim” is a pretty rock’n’roll attitude at the best of times, unless you’re a marine biologist, in which case it’s just geeky. But when you’re a jump jet pilot it’s just fuckin’ hard assed.

Godly Ping Pong

Table Tennis should be the ultimate geek sport. Basically it’s tennis but played with dweeby little rackets and a girly little ball on a doll’s tennis court. Somehow, however, it manages to be pretty cool, especially when played by Asians, who of course are generally amazing at it and turn it into some kind of [...]

Goalkeeper

If this guy was the goalie on your team you’d probably want to kill him. Taking unnecessary risks for the hell of it is funny if you’re an unsupervised child or blind old person. The possible outcomes of severe maiming or death are all art of life’s rich tapestry. However taking risks with the scoreline [...]

Glock Auto

A really really really boring clip, unless for some reason you find guns cool. If this is the case you are probably some kind of testosterone fueled nutcase who also finds cars and motorbikes cool. And sports and beer and naked 25 year old Swedish models, and gadgets and loud music and hard drugs. Ah [...]

F-14D

Steve from Austin, who sent me this clip also sent this explanation of what it is. Pretty damn cool:
Every so often, just the right combination of conditions and events occur to create an unbelievable event – in this case an F-14D passing through the sound barrier. Not only were the water vapor, density and temperature [...]
