This Huge Forging Hammer Smashes Things Like a Real Life Thwomp from Super Mario This Huge Forging Hammer Smashes Things Like a Real Life Thwomp from Super Mario

Remember those really mean, really big, really powerful stone blocks in Super Mario that just repeatedly try to smash the living hell out of things whenever you’re passing underneath them? Yeah, the Thwomps. That’s what this super tall, giant forging hammer reminds me of. It comes crashing down with such ridiculous…

8 Science Fiction Tales Where Heatwaves Nearly Killed Us All 8 Science Fiction Tales Where Heatwaves Nearly Killed Us All

Congratulations! We just survived one record-breaking heatwave, but it was only the first volley in a campaign cooked up by the sun to kill us all. Forecasts anticipate another one soon, so get ready to sweat—and after you turn up the A/C you might as well learn about scifi’s shittiest heatwaves. Remember: Forewarned…

Transforming a Hammer Head into an Axe Transforming a Hammer Head into an Axe

While most people see a hammer and just see a hammer, The Art of Weapons sees the potential to turn the brute hardened steel into an axe. Basically, the head of the hammer turned into the axe blade and the claw side of the hammer got forged together to form one spike. The whole process turning a blunt smashing object…

How to break open a Master Lock with just a small hammer How to break open a Master Lock with just a small hammer

It doesn’t take much effort to bust open a Master Lock. All you need to do is apply a little bit of pressure on one end and then add a few taps at the other side in a specific spot and pop, the thing opens pretty easily. Shockingly so! In fact, you don’t even really need a hammer to do this trick, the end of a…

Christopher Lee's last message feels like a premonitory farewell Christopher Lee's last message feels like a premonitory farewell

I’m a huge fan of Sir Christopher Lee. Not only did he have a wicked sense of humor and a great life philosophy, but he was a fantastic—and very underappreciated!—actor. After I saw his first film in Hammer’s Dracula series, he visited my childhood nightmares every day. He terrified me—and I loved every bit of it.

The jiggly fun of smashing a CD with a sledge hammer in slow motion The jiggly fun of smashing a CD with a sledge hammer in slow motion

The only thing CDs are good for these days is to serve as slow motion destruction entertainment for YouTube videos. The mirror circle shape lends itself to sillily watchable GIFs where young people on the Internet wonder just what the hell retro future object they’re looking at.

Making a screw flush with the surface is like creating invisibility Making a screw flush with the surface is like creating invisibility

When a screw sticks out on metal or isn't perfectly flush with the surface, an angel in heaven loses an eyeball. Or something like that. But fret not eyeballs of angels in heaven, people of Earth can make a screw completely flush. It's a lot of filing and sanding and hammering but eventually the screw disappears.

8 Vampires Who Make Bloodsuckers Into Badass Monsters Again 8 Vampires Who Make Bloodsuckers Into Badass Monsters Again

Too long have vampires been portrayed as heroes, lovers, fops, and/or glitter-covered emotional disasters. We remember a time when vampires were monsters, and the only reason they were trying to get into your teenage daughter's bedroom was to drink their blood and murder them. Here are eight vampires who refuse to be…

Want to instantly shatter a car window? Just throw a tiny porcelain bit Want to instantly shatter a car window? Just throw a tiny porcelain bit

If I had to pick a hammer or a tiny piece of porcelain to shatter a car window, I'd probably think nothing of it and grab the mallet. NatGeo proves me wrong. A little itty bitty piece of porcelain chipped off a spark plug does much more damage to a car window and is so much more easy to use too. Just chuck it at the…

Hammer was the British master of horror movies in the '60s and '70s, and now the famed production company is returning to its heyday with The Quiet Ones, about a group of students led by professor Jared Harris who manage to create a ghost. Here's the trailer.

Captain Picard's vacation videos highlight this week’s Blu-rays Captain Picard's vacation videos highlight this week’s Blu-rays

Even though Picard is clearly on vacation and trying to relax, the week’s DVD and Blu-ray releases march ever forward. This week includes fake superheroes, lesbian vampires and manborgs! (Also, here’s the uncropped pic, in case you want to see the Captain’s log.)

Ken Robichaud has created these awesome, full-sized Avengers props in Lego: Thor's Mjölnir, Captain America's shield, Hawkeye's bow and arrows and the Black Widow's thingamajigs. They are perfectly made. The arch even bends like the real thing! (nerdy scream).

Craftsman Hammerhead: Great for Pounding in Tight Spots Craftsman Hammerhead: Great for Pounding in Tight Spots

I'm not what you'd call "coordinated," so the prospect of hammering nails without worrying about how many fingernails I'll lose in the process is, um, appealing. The Craftsman HammerHead G2 Auto-Hammer does that—just not terribly well.

These Tools Look Like Props From Evil Dead These Tools Look Like Props From Evil Dead

These tools look bad ass. They've got names better than any Nordic Black Metal band. They look like they've just been released from a lengthy prison sentence. I can't decide if I want to use them to build a shed or mash a zombie.

The Crovel Is the Only Multi-Tool Shovel You'll Ever Need The Crovel Is the Only Multi-Tool Shovel You'll Ever Need

Like the Chinese military shovel before it, the Crovel is a multi-tool shovel that doubles as an axe, triples as a crowbar, quadruples as a hammer, and does even more. Bottle opener? Check. Saw? Come on, of course. Paracord grip? Uh, duh. The Crovel has thirteen different tools jam packed in its sexy body and each is…

Get Hammered Like the Gods Get Hammered Like the Gods

When is it okay for the toy version of an icon to not be 100% faithful to the original? When you add a friggin missile. That's right: Thor himself would be jealous of Hasbro's projectile-enabled take on his mighty hammer.

Robbery with a Giant Stick Is Way Funnier Than It Should Be

If you were a convenience store clerk faced with a robber wielding a comically large stick as a weapon, you probably wouldn't think it was too comical. But after the fact, the security camera footage is pretty ridiculous.
