Grocery Retrievers

A couple of golden retrievers help their owner bring the groceries in from the store. While this approach works well for packaged goods, we’re going to go out on a limb and guess any butchered meats would be devoured before they made it to the front door.


(PG-13) Two hesitant members of rival gangs are forced to work together to escape from another band of thugs. Trevor Stevens’ intense short film mirrors the downward spiral of running with the wrong crowd.

Timeless Dreams

Julian Tryba edited the footage that he and his friend Mike Sutton took of the American Southwest into a mesmerizing layer-lapse, where parts of different time-lapse shots are merged into the same frame. The song is Kygo’s remix of M83’s Wait.

Doge Mask

Yes, the doge meme is pretty long in the tooth, but we still dig these hilarious doge masks as a cheap and easy way to costume this Halloween. Simply put one on, and slap on some sticky notes with phrases like “wow” and “so scare,” and you’re all set.


Rhett & Link do their best to be one with nature as they camp out in their sleeping bags. Though their definition of “roughing it in the great outdoors” includes use of the latest in camping technology.

Timbuk2 Alcatraz Custom Backpack

Unlike most backpacks, Timbuk2 lets you customize your pack with numerous styles of nylon, water resistant, canvas, wool or specialty textiles. The Alcatraz is modern and versatile, with plentiful storage and compartments for up to a 17? MacBook Pro and an iPad.

x2 Underwater Jet Pack

SCP Marine Innovation is in dire need of a PR team. If we’re freaking out over a gimped hoverboard then we should all be going nuts for the x2. The wrist-mounted thrusters let you go up to 6 mph underwater for up to an hour per charge, or until your arms give out.

Clublife Adagio Headphones

Designed in collaboration with DJ Tiësto, The Clublife Adagio in-ear headphones offer big, bold and dynamic sounds in a compact package, thanks to their powerful, but well-balanced 9mm drivers. Includes an inline mic for phone calls, and a leather storage wallet.

Insane Chinese Traffic Jam

If you live in any major U.S. city, traffic is an everyday part of life. But any time you feel the road rage boiling over, just think about this video of a major traffic jam in Beijing, and you might feel just a little better about the slowdowns you encounter on a daily basis.

Hopsin: No Words

(PG-13) Hopsin thinks there’s something worse than poorly written rap songs: the ones where there are barely any words in them. Watch him poop on Young Thug, Future and the other Bon Ivers of hip hop in this skit from his album Pound Syndrome.

Light L16 Camera

The Light L16 aims to bring DSLR quality to a pocket-sized device. Instead of offering just a single lens, it has 16 camera modules for different types of pictures, and 10 of them fire at the same time to create a 52mp image. Early adopters save $400. Gallery here.

The Tree Samurai

Rock star he ain’t, but YouTuber Chuck Berry can trim Christmas trees – and perhaps someday his body – in a jiffy by dual-wielding brush knives. We like his casual swishes from behind, as if saying he doesn’t mind if all he has below his knees is air.

Pedal Lock

Not to be confused with the similarly named concept, the Pedal Lock is a bicycle pedal that has a built-in retractable stainless steel cable with a three-digit lock. It also has a motion-activated 120dB alarm. The final version will be water- and dirt-resistant.

24 Ridiculous Lawsuits

Subway’s footlongs were actually lessthanafootlongs, a man sued himself to get free money and a woman thought Frozen was based on her life. All that and more in Mental Floss List Show’s rundown of absurd and frivolous lawsuits.

Deal: Ultimate Data/Analytics Bundle

No matter what you do for work, understanding data and how to use it can be very valuable. This incredible bargain provides access to over 130 online courses (valued at $1699) to help you improve skills working with databases, analytic tools, and data-driven decision making.

Far Cry Primal (Trailers)

Goodbye wingsuit, hello saber-toothed cats. Far Cry Primal takes place in a primitive world with danger in the form of both man and beast. It’s looking like a single-player version of the likes of Rust and ARK.

Melting POP

Filmmaker Alexandre Dubosc loves to make animation using food. His latest work is a zoetrope formed out of a multiple-tiered cake. It shows a wacky cycle where corn kernels are turned into popcorn and back. Behind the scenes here.

Sunset Selfies

When he’s not volunteering around the world and winning Emmys, John Marshall has been doing a fun little side project – he cuts out cardboard silhouettes, and then shoots clever and whimsical images of himself and his creations backlit by the sunset. More on Tumblr.

On the Roofs: Two Spires

The crazy free-climbing duo On the Roofs shared their latest video – a view from the very top of the 1,094ft. Shimao International Plaza in Shanghai, China. We nearly peed ourselves when they got to the lightning rod.

De Staat: Witch Doctor

(PG-13: Language) Even if De Staat’s intense track isn’t your musical cup of tea, Studio Smack’s mindblowing music video will pull you in and won’t let go. The low-budget video was made with mo-cap and CGI trickery. We haven’t felt this way since seeing Mad Max: Fury Road.
