WTF Friday: Peek-a-Boo

I know it's wrong to make fun of people for things that they can't help. But damnit, I just can't help myself! I mean, it's not my fault that this woman looks like a bug-eyed park goblin, lurking behind trees, waiting to breath heavily on innocent people. Somebody's got to stand up to this kind of threat. And I'm willing to take the blame for being an asshole, and just call a spade a spade. You're welcome.

Can Someone Please Explain WTF Is in This Sewer? [Video]

Alright, this very well may be fake - but I don't think it is. At least not yet. The video is from an unmanned sewer camera. And the thing in the video is... I have no f**king clue, but it scares the sh*t out of me. Some people claim it's just plant roots that are very reactive to light, others say it's just "a sack of sewer worms". OK, but since when have either of those things existed?

Is Facebook Helping to Squash the Revolution in Iran?

With the increasingly bloody battle for Iran's future raging on in Tehran, social networking Sites, like Facebook and Twitter, remain the primary source of news out of the country, whose government has effectively banned all established press from reporting. Wisely, Twitter has done whatever it can to help maintain its service for the Iranian people, ensuring Twitter's relevance in this new era...

Spirit Showdown: Scotch vs Bourbon

For many drink enthusiasts, Scotch and Bourbon stand strongest at opposite ends of the “brown spirit” battlefield. To the West, the sweet punch to the face of Bourbon, America’s whiskey; to the East, Scotch whisky — a deep, smoky Highland warrior. While plenty of whisky drinkers cross sides, most have their favorite kind. Far more, however, couldn’t tell the difference between a Maker’s Mark and a Johnnie Walker...

Testing 5-Hour Energy… Kinda

It's Wednesday afternoon, and I feel like climbing back into bed, pulling up the covers and sleeping for as long as life will let me. But I can't. Like most of you, I'm at work, sitting in front a computer, clicking away the hours, with heavy eyes and a case of mild irritability. So to beat away this everyday fatigue, I've decided to try 5-hour Energy for the first time.

The Future Is now: Stem Cell Contact Lenses Cure Blindness

Normally we don't report on things like medical advances here at COED, but this was just a bit too SciFi awesome for me to pass up. Scientists have created contact lenses cultured from stems cell that have successfully cured blindness in patients in less than a month.

Amazing Motorcycle Save [Video]

If you've ever ridden a motorcycle, you know that the primary goal at all times is to stay on your bike, no matter what. And if you aren't on your bike while it's still moving, something has gone terribly wrong. And this video is no exception - other than the fact that racer Raffaele De Rosa pulls off the most badass save of all-time.

Tosh.0 Makes the Internet His B*tch

Let's face it - we're addicted. Every single one of us. We're addicted to 'tweets' and 'blogs' and cute f**king kittens. We're addicted to staying in touch with everyone we've ever met (and plenty of people we've never met), to talking sh*t anonymously to strangers and laughing at other's misfortune. And it's high time somebody show this every-growing monstrosity called the Internet who's the g*ddamn boss! Which is where Tosh.0 comes in.

He Fought the Law and the Law Lost [Video]

If you've ever had an interaction with the police, you know how frustrating it is to be completely helpless from their bullsh*t power - especially when they're arresting and won't tell you why. So I completely understand this weird nerd's pleas. His singing, I don't quite get. But whatever - he makes up for that entirely after getting Tazered, then getting away! It's awesome.

Bruno Tea-Bags Eminem at MTV Movie Awards [Video]

Before last night, I'd been wondering why the MTV Movie Awards still exist. I mean, does anybody really give a crap anymore? But that was before Sacha Baron Cohen "Bruno" dropped from the sky in angel wings (and no pants). When the wires got tangled, he fell into the crowd, landing on top of Eminem, giving him a taste of the ol' undercarriage. Afterward, Eminem stormed off stage in a huff. TV doesn't get much better than that.

Cheese Rolling Looks Painful, Hilarious [Video]

Every year, hoards of Brits descend upon Gloucester, England for the annual Cheese Rolling event. A wheel of cheese is, you guessed it, rolled down a giant hill and contestants then race down after it. First one to the bottom wins. Only thing is, getting to the bottom basically involves spraining every joint in your body. So, have fun with that...

The 7 Household Highs You Shouldn’t Have Tried

Before you were old enough to buy beer or have your own pot delivery guy, you probably did some pretty stupid-ass things to yourself in effort to add a little excitement to the unbearable reality of high school. From smoking banana peels to toothpaste-laced cigarettes, your options were pretty much limited to whatever you could scrounge up around the house or under the kitchen sink.

The Best Game of All-Time [Video]

Whoever came up with this game was (is?) a damn genius. If you didn't already know, it's called "Suck and Blow.". And the object of the game is to pass paying cards from mouth-to-mouth without letting the card fall. But for the record, this game really shouldn't be played unless it's played by a gaggle of giggling girls in skimpy outfits, just sayin'...

Dude Pulls Over Speeding Cop [Video]

In this age of ubiquitous video cameras, we've all seen plenty of footage of police power-grabs, brutality and all-around d!ckishness. But never in my entire life have I seen someone do this. Basically a Virginia State Patrol car blows past a dude, who apparently has a serious grudge against cops, at around 90 MPH.
