22plinkster Christmas Video: 500 S&W vs. Slime

Just in time for Christmas, 22plinkster does some bullet penetration testing with homemade, Christmas-colored slime. He begins with a .22LR lever-action, then steps it up to a .44 Magnum, then a 500 Smith & Wesson, and finally a .308 Win.

The results are a bit surprising, and certainly messy; check it out below!

Video: Kirsten Joy Weiss Highlights the Ever Useful and Equally Deadly Blowgun

When stealth is the mission, a blow gun should be your weapon of choice.

Blow guns have been used throughout time and across nearly every continent – and for good reason.

Blow guns are simply made using bamboo, other hardwoods, or reinforced plastic. Typically, darts tipped with poisons are fired from blow guns, but other projectiles such as seeds or clay pellets work too.

Watch the video below to find out more interesting facts about blow guns:

Video: Mountain Biking and Black Bears Don’t Mix; Here’s Why

Tue, 09/12/2017 - 15:30

When mountain biking through the woods, riders should always be cautious of potential trail hazards ahead of them.

So what are these trail hazards that we’re talking about? We’re glad you asked.

The short clip below gives you an excellent example of a trail hazard you don’t want to come across, and should you ever find yourself in a similar situation, take note of how the rider bails off the bike and gets the heck out of there:

Press Conference Turns to Chaos After Tick on Display Goes Missing

Mon, 09/11/2017 - 13:00

On September 4, at a press conference at the Miyazaki Prefectural Government office in Mainichi, Japan, two ixodid ticks were on display as part of the prefectural government’s efforts to warn people about “severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome,” (SFTS) which is spread by ixodid ticks.

The conference had been running smoothly, until someone noticed one of the two ticks had gone missing. . .

Mainichi states the tick was brought to the conference by a prefectural government employee, and was left on a sheet of paper next to a second ixodid tick that was already dead from sucking some blood.

When the blood sucking insect was discovered missing, the room turned into complete chaos.

Journalists and other governmental employees began frantically searching for the tick, but it was never found. In an effort to eliminate the threat, the prefectural government unleashed two types of insecticide in the press room.

Fri, 09/08/2017 - 10:39

If you’ve spent sleepless nights wondering what the new Glock Gen. 5 specs will look like, we have good news for you. We dug up this video on YouTube, and it details every change Glock made for its new handgun.

Check out the video below to get a look at this new firearm that’s as good as holding it in your own hands.

The first thing you’ll likely notice – if it bothered you from past models – is the improvements made on the grip. Gone are the finger grooves that people apparently dreaded, and that’s only the beginning of the changes that Glock made to improve the look of the gun.

The real goodies are found internally, and shooters will surely appreciate what Glock has done to improve the functionality of this firearm:

Video: Backpackers Yell “Hey” At a Lake And Then Something Mesmerizing Happens

Wed, 09/06/2017 - 14:50

There are always surprises in the woods.

The backpackers who filmed this video set up camp at Nellie Lake in the Kaiser Wilderness, CA. While they we siting by the shore the presumably noticed that the waterbugs on the surface of the lake were reacting to their voice. Everytime they shout “Hey” you can watch the bugs move causing a ripple effect across the lake. It’s actually really cool to watch it propagate across the lake in real time.

It’s little things like this that keep us coming back to the wilderness.

Video: Handstand Bow and Arrow Shot While Mom Holds Target Down Range

Tue, 08/29/2017 - 10:19

This is how NOT to practice for deer season!

This video shows a girl getting in some archery practice, which would normally be something we love to see. Not this time, however. . .

Take a look down range, and you’ll notice she has her mom standing there holding the target for her. (Don’t mind us while we cover our eyes)

Here’s the video:

(Make sure you turn up the volume to hear her say to her mom, “very good, you’re alive” after hitting the target)

Tip of the day: Don’t touch the floating islands of fire ant colonies that are floating around Houston right now, they will really ruin your day.

Video: Blackpowder Bottle Ignites after Shooting Miniature Cannon

Thu, 08/24/2017 - 11:52

Here’s a reminder of how touchy blackpowder can be.

Anytime you’re handling blackpowder, you should always use good judgement and be as careful as possible. This video shows a guy who was rather careless with a bottle of blackpowder, and used really, really poor judgement . . .

As you’ll see, the guy is playing with some kind of miniature cannon, which is pretty cool and all, but he might have forgot something.

When the cannon goes off, you may have noticed an opened bottle sitting just a couple feet behind it. If you didn’t see it, don’t worry, because it’s about to burst into flames after what would appear to be an ember falls into the bottle and ignites the whole thing.

Video: Australian Man Loses His Cool when a Shark Looks Him in the Eye

Wed, 08/23/2017 - 08:35

A great white shark gave a couple Aussies a thrill they won’t soon forget.

The video below shows a large white shark circling a boat while two Australian men watch in awe. The shark, which is estimated to be around 16 feet long, swims a few laps around the boat, puts on a good show for the two gentlemen, and even looks one of them square in the eye as it passes by in the water below.

This causes one of the men to lose his cool for a second, and even suggests they leave the area.

Just as the men agree that they should get out of there, the shark dives into the deep and seems to disappear. Did the shark lose interest in the boat, or is it positioning itself to attack?

Watch the video below to find out what happens:

Video: Bizarre Animal with Human Features Baffles the World

Mon, 08/21/2017 - 12:26

This bizarre animal will either have you scratching your head in confusion, or covering your eyes with terror . . .

Nobody seems to know for sure what this creature is, but it looks like a goat or cow mixed with something from your worst nightmares! It has huge ears, a large under bite, and basically no hair – unless you count the balding comb-over look it’s sporting.

The video of this animal apparently comes from a village in India.

If you have any idea what in the world this could be, please share with us! We’ve sure seen our share of strange animals before, but none had such distinct human features like this one.

Here is the video (be sure to turn up the volume for best viewing):

Video: Angler Goes Full Matrix to Pull in Foul Hooked Sturgeon

Mon, 08/21/2017 - 11:02

Every angler can relate to this: Have you ever hooked a fish that felt like you were reeling in a small boat, and it turns out you hooked only a small bass by its side?

Well, when you’re fishing for large fish such as sturgeon, this is what it looks like if you hook one of those prehistoric monsters in the side. (Be sure to crank up the Facebook video volume to hear the extreme effort!)

As you can see, getting that fish to shore was a two person job! The first angler gave it everything he had – just watch how he goes full Matrix trying to yank this fish in – but eventually has to tap out and let his buddy finish the job.

Video: Shooting Eclipse Photos Could Cause Your Camera to Catch on Fire

Mon, 08/21/2017 - 09:25

This is just a friendly reminder to those folks who enjoy shooting wildlife photography: If you don’t have the proper equipment, you might want to watch this video before shooting pictures of the eclipse.

A total solar eclipse hasn’t been seen anywhere on the U.S. mainland in 38 years, so naturally, people are going to be anxious to try and snap good photos of this thing. We urge you to use caution, however, because if you don’t have the proper filters for your camera lens, you could end up melting the inside of your camera.

Watch this video, and it will explain everything you need to know – and don’t forget to turn up the volume.

Enjoy the eclipse!

Video: .50 Cal vs. Non-Newtonian Fluid

Thu, 08/17/2017 - 10:33

Remember when an Air Force Academy cadet and a professor teamed up to develop a ‘goo’ strong enough to stop bullets? Well, we get to see that material in action . . . sort of.

Watch the video below to see Iraqveteran8888 and a special guest test out the strength of this non-newtonian fluid by shooting a bucket full of it with a .50 Cal rifle:

That went pretty much as expected.

This video was a cool demonstration of how this material works up close, but the shooting test didn’t reveal any shocking results. Anytime you shoot a bucket full of liquid with a .50 caliber rifle, you’re going to have a big mess on your hands.

Video: Larry the Cable Guy Doesn’t Actually have a Southern Accent?

Wed, 08/16/2017 - 09:55

We have semi-breaking news: Larry the Cable Guy – you know, the “Git-er-done” guy – doesn’t actually have a southern accent.

We know, we couldn’t believe it at first either, but it is true.

Now, he admits to being a “linguist chameleon,” in that he actually speaks many different tongues. He spoke with Graham Bensinger in the video below about how part of his family is from Wisconsin, and when he spends time up there he picks up things like a Wisconsin accent.

After watching him perform comedy skits on stage, it’s pretty strange to hear him talk without an accent. See what we’re talking about and if it catches you off guard at first, too:
