8-Year-Old Hero Steals Car to Buy McDonald's After Learning to Drive on YouTube 8-Year-Old Hero Steals Car to Buy McDonald's After Learning to Drive on YouTube

You might think you’re a good driver. But you’ve got nothing on a nameless 8-year-old hero from Ohio. This past weekend he and his 4-year-old sister waited for their parents to fall asleep, stole their car, and then drove to McDonald’s to chow down on some McMeats.

Seeing the Explosion Inside a See Through Engine Shows You How Engines Work Seeing the Explosion Inside a See Through Engine Shows You How Engines Work

This particular engine we’re looking at has four strokes: the intake, the compression, the combustion (or power), and the exhaust. Smarter Every Day visited the guys of 805 Road King and their see through engine to show us exactly what’s going on in an engine when we fire it up and it’s pretty fascinating stuff.

Two Guys Shooting Huge Ass Fireworks at Each Other Somehow Don't Kill Each Other Two Guys Shooting Huge Ass Fireworks at Each Other Somehow Don't Kill Each Other

I’m not going to call these guys total idiots because if I had access to big fireworks, an empty street, and a camera, there’s a non-zero chance that I too would light those fireworks up, blast my friend in an awesomely stupid fireworks fight, and record the whole damn thing so that other people could call me an…

Watch a Skier Almost Hit People on a Ski Lift While Doing a Double Backflip Watch a Skier Almost Hit People on a Ski Lift While Doing a Double Backflip

I’m not 100% sure the skier in the video didn’t clip his head on the boots of the people sitting on the ski lift but even if he did, he’s still bad ass enough to complete a casual double backflip off a wild jump. I’ve watched the video multiple times and it’s totally nuts because after he completes the first flip he’s…

Strapping a GoPro on a Sword Is the Best Way to Watch a Watermelon Get Slaughtered Strapping a GoPro on a Sword Is the Best Way to Watch a Watermelon Get Slaughtered

Mounting a GoPro onto a sword and then watching it chop the hell out of things is awesome, but it isn’t as easy as I thought. You can’t just tape a camera down on one end of the blade and hope for the best, because the shot will look all wacky. The sword moves too fast so it’s all blurry, the camera angle is capturing…

Biking Through Portals Like This Would Be So Freaking Sick Biking Through Portals Like This Would Be So Freaking Sick

There are many things in this world that need to be invented before this, and possibly more things that need to be fixed, but I think we all need to shift our priorities so we can focus on creating portals that we can jump through and teleport to another place like in the video game.

Being Stuck Inside This Laser-Filled Room Would Be a Great Place to Lose Your Mind Being Stuck Inside This Laser-Filled Room Would Be a Great Place to Lose Your Mind

This immersive laser beam installation seems like the perfect place to pop a pill, stare at some lights, cleanse yourself from sin, and, like, maybe even just leave your soul behind. The room is so huge and the lasers come from everywhere that it must be a hell of a trip. Like, you’re trapped inside a machine. Or the…

Seeing the Aurora Borealis' Reflection on Water Is So Cool Seeing the Aurora Borealis' Reflection on Water Is So Cool

I was going to say my New Year’s resolution (and everyone who’s able) should be to see the Northern Lights in person but I’m not sure seeing them with my own eyes can actually top the electric timelapses and stunning low light photography of them. This one by AD Photography shows the Aurora Borealis from Denmark and…

Shooting a Tesla Coil Gun Is Some Real Ghostbusters Shit Shooting a Tesla Coil Gun Is Some Real Ghostbusters Shit

There’s nothing I want to do more in life than to shoot a Tesla coil gun. Seeing those bolts of electricity fly out of that death ray-looking weapon is basically all I’ve ever dreamed about since I’ve watched Ghostbusters, and this Tesla coil gun is the closest thing to a real-life Proton Pack that I’ve ever seen.

How to Make an Awesome Fire Tornado with No Moving Parts How to Make an Awesome Fire Tornado with No Moving Parts

I don’t think it’s possible to make anything cooler with your own two hands than this homemade multicolor fire tornado that spins around and weaves itself together with absolutely no moving parts. The only thing you need to do is cut up a glass cylinder and then offset the half-cylinders a little bit to let air flow…

How Is This Kid So Damn Good at Freeline Skating? How Is This Kid So Damn Good at Freeline Skating?

Freeline skates are a pair of skates that are completely separate from each other, and simply riding them seems impossible. A skateboard is one solid deck, and roller blades are attached to your feet. But freeline skates? Each part has two inline wheels, and somehow you have to somehow control both at the same time by…

This Glow in the Dark Finger Puppet Dance Is Unreal This Glow in the Dark Finger Puppet Dance Is Unreal

Damn, this finger puppet is so awesome. Not only does it glow in the dark but its dance moves are so incredible that you’d think it was alive. It just moves so fluidly.

Making an Actual Skateboard with Lego Bricks Is Just Awesome Making an Actual Skateboard with Lego Bricks Is Just Awesome

Sure, people build lots of different things with Lego, but those are just toys or fun models. To make an actual working skateboard that will be outfitted with trucks and wheels to support the weight of an adult human? To hold up against the punishment of skaters? You need a wildly creative woodworker like Peter Brown…

Blowing Up Fruits and Vegetables in Slow Motion Is Good Clean Fun Blowing Up Fruits and Vegetables in Slow Motion Is Good Clean Fun

Some fruits and vegetables blow up better than others. A pineapple? Looks fantastic because it sends shards everywhere. An onion? Hell yeah, the unraveling of layers is awesome. A cucumber explosion? Just okay because it gets blown to bits too quickly. Lemons are a little disappointing, too, because you’d expect a…

Seeing a Medieval Viking Ulfberht Sword Get Made Today Is So Damn Awesome Seeing a Medieval Viking Ulfberht Sword Get Made Today Is So Damn Awesome

Medieval Viking Ulfberht swords are some of the most famous swords in history because they were so obscenely strong that it’s almost unbelievable that bladesmiths in the 9th century were even able to make them. Made from crucible steel, the swords stood out from everything from that time period. Hell, the process of…

Here's One Brilliantly Tense Movie Scene Here's One Brilliantly Tense Movie Scene

I’ve been impressed with the films of director Denis Villeneuve and enjoyed a good amount of Sicario so it’s pretty fun to share this CineFix analysis of a ridiculously tense sequence in the movie. If you haven’t seen the movie, you can still probably enjoy the exhaustive breakdown of the scene but if you have watched …

Fun Video Shows Bikers Popping Up Out of Nowhere and Doing Tricks in the Field Fun Video Shows Bikers Popping Up Out of Nowhere and Doing Tricks in the Field

Bikers Martin Söderström and Dawid Godziek seriously just pop up out of nowhere in this video as they bust crazy tricks out in the field. The expert editing hides their jumps so it looks like they’re almost superhuman because they’re getting so much air.

Walking Inside This Crystal Universe Is Like Wandering the Universe Walking Inside This Crystal Universe Is Like Wandering the Universe

I want to step inside the Crystal Universe installation by TeamLab and just never leave. It’s an immersive art exhibit that’s been around various museums and galleries already and it’s currently in Tokyo (which means I probably won’t get a chance to step in just yet but it’s okay, after watching this video, it’s all I…

Expelliarmus. Avada Kedavra. Expecto Patronum. Crucio. If you’re a Harry Potter fan (and the entire world is), you ought to know what those famous spells do. If you don’t, watch this awesome supercut from Davide Rapp that alphabetizes all the spells used in the Harry Potter movies and then shows you the scenes in…
