And now, check out this guy on a water powered hoverboard shot in 4K

So, it’s not really practical for scooting around town, but I’d pay good money to do this for a day.

Man jumps into Sydney Harbor with a GoPro camera, ends up filming his fist fight with a great white shark

Because everything in Australia wants to kill you, a quick jump in the water turns into this.

Apparently lowrider fighting is a real thing and it’s ridiculously awesome

From Texas, two lowriders bounce and bounce and bounce and then pounce on top of each other. America, the land of dreams.

Astronaut Reid Wiseman creates the first Vine in outer space

It’s a single orbit condensed into 60 seconds, showing what a “sunset” looks like from the ISS. 

Austin considering a statue of Glen Danzig riding a dragon, as every town in America should

Well.. considering as in some guy at the last Austin Music Commission meeting brought it up, and suggested it should be plated in gold with ruby eyes for the dragon. It’s unlikely that this will actually ever happen, which is sad, but I can dream. Time for everyone to get involved in local politics and suggest this at city council meetings across this great nation— somebody will do it.

Artist regrows Van Gogh’s lost ear via his ancestor’s DNA

image

Artist Diemut Strebe made a living replica of Vincent van Gogh’s ear, grown from genetic samples provided by Lieuwe van Gogh, the great-great-grandson of Vincent’s brother Theo. They share about 1/16th of the same genes, including the Y-chromosome, passed down the male lineage.

So not actually Vincent Van Gogh’s ear if you want to get super technical about it— it’s a replica of his great-great-grandnephew’s ear, but that really doesn’t make it less badass.

Watch a new Mac Pro get filled with C4 and spectacularly destroyed

The new Mac Pro is a pretty resilient machine, right up until the C4 goes in.

The SpaceX Dragon V2 spaceship is here and boy is it amazing

Last night, SpaceX gave a long and detailed demonstration of the second version of its Dragon spacecraft, appropriately named the Dragon V2. The current Dragon is an unmanned supply ship that’s mainly been just used for testing and very limited use in resupplying the ISS, but the V2 is a human operated, human carrying little spaceship that can go into orbit, come back, land anywhere on Earth with the accuracy of a helicopter, refuel and hop right back up into space. 

Watch the videos and see more pictures here. Try not to drool all over your keyboard.

And now, it’s the world’s first BASE jumping dog

You’ll believe dogs can fly…

Guy falls 70 feet into an icy crevasse, escapes and films the whole thing. Scientists are just super hardcore like that.

When you do climate research and are a university professor from a major coal exporting state, you can be fairly certain that your research will be under funded. So you get grants where you can, collaborate with other institutions and societies, and roll with the punches of setbacks like changing sample locations mid-expedition after an avalanche kills a team member. The result of such circumstances might put you 70ft down in a crevasse, alone, at high altitude, with a broken side. Meet John All, a man who found himself in such a spot. And before you call him foolish, narcissistic, or dumb for actively planning to continue his research, I have interacted with him as a graduate student at WKU’s institution and I will let you know he is a humble, considerate man. Enjoy the footage.
