See it and weep: It costs $2.3 million for new Aston Martin Vulcan

VIDEO: Man attempts to slice watermelon with sword, utterly fails
Watch what happens when this guy tries to cut a watermelon with a huge sword. It didn't quite turn out the way he planned. A man named Ali attempts to slice a watermelon that is sitting on a glass patio table using a sword that looks like it belongs to a samurai warrior.

VIDEO: The struggle is real
Dig the adversity these ladies have had to face in Internet Action Force's "You Won't Believe the Struggle." It's some pretty damn amazing white privilege one-upmanship.

"I'd like to see someone else live on 200 Euros a day backpacking through Gstaad." Oh, the humanity. Can you handle it? RELATED: VIDEO: Street Fighter elevator...

VIDEO: Street Fighter elevator prank
This "fun" little "prank" is actually borderline terrifying for the unsuspecting victims who step into an elevator with a man dressed like Ryu from "Street Fighter" who then proceeds to fake-hadouken them. It's very nearly a great example of why pranking should be left to the professionals. But then again, half the fun is waiting for someone to really react poorly to getting pretend punched and kicked. The other half? When his female accomplice dressed as Chun Li shows up, because Chun Li makes...
