Restoring a Creepy Clown Bank

Restoring a Creepy Clown Bank

Rescue & Restore does a great job taking rusty old items and making them good as new. But given just how creepy this mechanical clown bank is, maybe it was better left in the junk heap. We could totally see a horror movie starting this way, then the bank comes to life and kills anyone who attempts to take the coins inside.

If You Jumped Into Stomach Acid

If You Jumped Into Stomach Acid

The What If channel likes to imagine some pretty gory hypotheticals, but this one takes the cake so far, as they envision what might happen to our bodies if we were to jump into a swimming pool filled with stomach acid. TL;DW: just get out of there and hose off quick.

NASA’s Guide to Black Hole Safety

David Hasselhoff in Moped Rider

David Hasselhoff in Moped Rider

We all know that Germans love David Hasselhoff, so it makes perfect sense that the Knight Rider and Baywatch star would appear in a commercial for a German automotive website. The words may be in German, but the humor is universal. Presumably, K.I.T.T. was replaced with a moped due to fuel efficiency concerns.

Carpenter Chris Salomone finds working with laminated bent wood to be one of his more intimidating pursuits, but from the looks of these shelves for his kicks, we think he’s mastered the technique.

A Bicycle Built for Shoes

A Bicycle Built for Shoes

The Q built one of the most insane custom bicycles we’ve ever seen. He replaced the standard wheels of his wide-tire bike with special rims that wear six shoes each instead of tires. It doesn’t look like the smoothest ride ever, but the shoe rubber does provide decent traction.
