Telekinesis Prank Is A Couple Notches Better Than Anything We’ve Seen So Far

Ok, first of all, this is an engineered viral video ad for the movie Carrie. But that doesn’t matter, because we’re of the belief that if an ad is actually entertaining, we’re all for watching it. And this particular commercial is awesome. It’s an elaborate prank on some unsuspecting coffee shop customers involving a girl with “telekinetic powers”. It’s so well made that you’d actually have a hard time believing it’s a prank. It involves tables on RC wheels, and a dude hanging from a wall.

It’s a fun watch. 10 million views in two days can’t all be wrong, right?

This Is The Craziest GTA V Car Chase You’ll See All Day

It sort of goes without saying that half the fun in GTA franchises is not to follow the missions, but to cause as much havoc in the city as humanly possible, before being caught by the cops. How far can you get? The guy in the video above takes us through one of the most insane car chases we’ve ever seen in a game, throwing grenades at helicopters, jumping over hills, taking curves at mind bending speeds… It’s worth a watch.

If Ballet Shoes Could Kill… Oh Wait, This Pair Probably Could!

ballerina-in-knife-shoes

Talk about killer dance moves.

I’m not referring to Miley Cyrus and her set at the VMAs, but rather, I’m talking about ballerina Amélie Ségarra and a short number she does wearing ballet shoes that have knives attached to them. Yes, knives. But that’s not all. The kicker has got to be the fact that Amélie’s stage happens to be a piano that she scars and destroys as she dances.

How Old Are Your Ears? Take This Test and Find Out

Ear Age

You probably use your ears a lot, even when you don’t mean to or when you’re not supposed to (ahem, like when you eavesdrop.) Studies show that people put their hearing at risk a lot, with too-loud headphones, blaring car stereos, and uber loud concerts that are partly to blame.

So the big question is: How old are your ears? AsapScience has created a hearing test of sorts that plays a series of tones at increasing frequencies. The video indicates which average age group can hear the tones, so you can find just how good or bad your hearing is almost immediately.

Yes, This Dude’s Driving an Upside-Down Camaro

Upside Down Camaro

No, there’s nothing wrong with your computer screen and your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you. This guy here is really driving an upside-down Camaro during a tongue-in-cheek racing event called 24 Hours of LeMONS. It’s essentially an endurance race for $500 cars.

The car pictured above combines elements of a bunch of two well-known vehicles: Chevy’s Camaro and Ford’s Festiva. It looks like the former on the outside, while running on the four cylinder, 1.3-liter engine of the latter on the inside.

Wheelbarrow with Internal Combustion Engine: Can Your Wheelbarrow Go Faster Than This?

world's fastest wheelbarrow

Hold your horses–er, barrows–because this might just be the fastest motor-powered wheelbarrow you’ll ever see!

Apparently modding wheelbarrows is a thing now, at least in Poland, where one dude decided to hook his barrow up with what sounds like a trail bike motor to give it that extra boost. It’s probably all for novelty’s sake. I mean, it’s admittedly pretty cool to have a wheelbarrow you can ride like a Segway, right?

You’ll Never Look At Them The Same: This Is What A Mosquito’s Mouthpiece Looking For A Blood Vessel Under Your Skin Looks Like

Squeamish? Please abstain. It’s not as gory or gross a video, as much as it is a disquieting perspective on just what exactly it is that goes on under the skin when a mosquito catches you distracted, and starts to feast. The stunning footage was grabbed by Valérie Choumet at Paris’s Institut Pasteur, where she anaesthetized a mouse, stuck a microscope against a flap of its skin and convinced a mosquito to bite in the right spot. What you see is the insect’s mouthparts probing around, looking for a blood vessel.

The large central needle in the video is actually two parallel tubes—the hypopharynx, which sends saliva down, and the labrum, which pumps blood back up. When a mosquito finds a host, these mouthparts probe around for a blood vessel. They often take several attempts, and a couple of minutes, to find one. And unexpectedly, around half of the ones that Choumet tested failed to do so. While they could all bite, it seemed that many suck at sucking.

We’ll include only this video in the article, but if you’re interested in just what is going on, you should follow the link at the bottom. It leads to a National Geographic article with tons more detail and a couple more vids.

GTA V Gameplay Footage: Set Your Drool To 10

grand-theft-auto-5-gameplay

It’s time for some gameplay footage, folks, and this time it’s courtesy of Rockstar. GTA V is highly anticipated, so the excitement is understandable. In the 5 minute trailer, you find out about its insanely expansive maps, as well as the ability to ride bicycles, go skydiving, play tennis, go golfing, deep sea diving, pilot helicopters (that’s not exactly new), ram into things, shoot stuff up, cause mayhem… Heck, everything you’ve ever done in a GTA game, only more and hopefully, better. Watch for yourselves and decide. The game comes out September 17.

They Walk Among Us: Prank Shows Jedi Using the Force to Open Elevator Doors

The force is with this Jedi, and he likes using his powers to make elevator doors re-open just as they’re sliding shut. You might dismiss it as an odd but amusing coincidence the first time it happens, but when it happens three more times, then you know something’s up. Either this dude really has telekinetic powers or he’s got someone on the outside..

I think it’s pretty clear which of these options is true.

The Star Wars-themed prank was thought up by the JesterLads at King’s College London. It’s pretty hilarious and you can easily replicate it if you want to pull the same prank on other people.
