Guitar Solo, Dick Shredded as Man Pours Fire Ants Into His Underwear

Jay Hathaway · 06/11/15 02:30PM

A brave, stupid young man in Rayong, Thailand “wanted to imitate Jackass,” Tomo News Today reports, so he had some friends pull a nest of fire ants off a tree and shake those angry little fuckers directly into his underpants.

Rich Juzwiak · 08/22/12 04:20PM

This is the perfect example of a video making a song — a hypnotic, wobbly house track, you either like what this is doing or you don't. Your body either responds to these particular sounds and frequencies or it doesn't. Simple.

The folks at British Pathé have just posted this video, filmed in Paris in 1949, in which the (unionized) members of Monsieur Roberts' Tame Flea Circus fleas pull miniature cars and bicycles, lift weights, and cause a whole roomful of people to scratch themselves. Also, a man arranges a bunch of car-carrying fleas on his arm into a traffic formation. Considering how bloodthirsty fleas usually are, this is way more daring than any of the circus tricks.

Scientists have concluded that male wasp spiders, who only get laid once or twice during their short lives, prefer to do it with virgins. Is that really so much to ask for, since they're usually eaten by their partners? [LiveScience]
