If you’re afraid of riding the ski lift, skip this video, which shows what could happen when a chairlift fails catastrophically and rolls back. Fortunately, the intentional destruction of this lift would lead to improved safety standards in today’s lifts.

To show off the strength of machines which use their advanced materials, GE tortured a variety of objects – melting, shattering, crushing and bending them beyond recognition. We’re not sure if they got their point across, but it’s fun to watch.

DudePerfect’s new series Bro-Mo is all about guys recording the wanton destruction of stuff in slow-motion. In this episode, they smash, crash and explode hundreds of eggs. Let’s hope they made some omelettes afterwards.

A laser pointer times 10,000, this incredibly powerful 5 Kilowatt device by TWI can be used for making quick work of metal demolition and decommissioning work. Now if we can just get one with a backpack power supply…

Flammable Household Items

Giant Drill Bit vs. Car

Giant Drill Bit vs. Car

We love it when construction equipment is used in ways it was never intended. In this clip, Bay Shore Systems shows off the 150,000 ft. lbs. of torque its TR-150 excavator drill can crank out, sacrificing a 1980s Oldsmobile as its victim.

The official video for alt-rockers Suede’s latest single features the wanton destruction of countless pieces of art, and the most excitement you’ve ever seen in a museum. Ironically, the video itself is a work of modern art.

How to Get Rid of a Car

How to Get Rid of a Car

We’re not sure why they never got rid of evidence this way on The Sopranos, but if we were mobsters with a New Way Cobra Magnum garbage truck, we’d definitely go this route. We never really liked that Grand Am anyhow.
