Even though I know better and am fully aware of the very real technological limitations and have read all the tepid reviews on the stupid thing and know that first generation Apple products aren’t worth the trouble and like most humans, enjoy having a bigger number than a smaller number in my bank account, I still bought an Apple Watch. Here’s why.

Awesome video shows what it must be like to control and break gravity

Can you imagine if you had a knob you can turn to sway gravity whichever way you like it? Clemen Wirth’s imaginative experimental video, Gravity, just does that. Water can be poured upwards, paint can drip sideways, flying balloons can fly down and the whole world can be bent in any shape you want. It’d be such a cool superpower to have.

Being inside a car inside an automatic car wash can be so relaxing

I remember being so fascinated with automatic car washes as a kid. Your mom would pull up the family car and then relinquish control to what seemed like a highly choreographed ballet of robot arms and soap ballerinas that worked together to clean your car. I would watch the bubbles, listen to the thumping and enjoy the whole experience.

Newly discovered frog species looks a lot like Kermit the Frog

We’ve found Kermit the Frog in real life and it’s a species of glassfrog just recently discovered called Hyalinobatrachium dianae in Costa Rica. It’s bright green just like Kermit, has big white adorable eyeballs just like Kermit and the males have a very unique mating call... just like Kermit, I guess? Anyway, the resemblance is uncanny.

Yup, real life is cooler than the movies. Especially when that life is of a US Marine. Here are five Marines walking away from a CH-53E Super Stallion helicopter in the desert in a training exercise. It looks more badass and perfectly picturesque than any still from a Hollywood military movie.

Watching fighter jets burn through the night is pure awesome

I can pretty much watch these fighter jets rip through the runway at night forever. I mean, what is more awesome than seeing city lights blur and afterburners shoot out fiery power? This footage comes from The Aviationist and includes all kind of fighter jets burning rubber at the Nellis Air Force Base near Las Vegas, Nevada.

Paul Wex's Interrupt is an absolutely beautiful look into people and life in southeast Asia. It's filmed entirely in slow motion with a vintage 35mm OM Zuiko lens on a Canon 5D Mk3 and the footage of random daily life is peaceful and serene and stunning and unreal. Its like the video has stopped time to showcase life.

This epic Daredevil hallway fight scene was filmed in a single take

Netflix's new TV show Daredevil is supposed to be fantastic . I haven't watched it yet but judging from this super long fight scene that was filmed entirely in a single take, I just might start tonight. I like the fight scene because it's choreographed perfectly and even though there were points where they could switch to another angle, they kept it rolling.

Dash cam reveals the human bouncing that happens inside a car crash

Thankfully, it's okay to laugh a little at this scary footage of a man bouncing around inside his car while a SUV rear ends him into an oncoming semi truck. That's because Daryl Peterson, the driver in the car, managed to walk away from the crash without a scratch or any injury at all. Thank God for airbags and seatbelts.
